Servicing at home or in the workshop

środa, 17 grudzień 2014 00:00



 A.P: I often hear 4WD owners talking about the frequency and high costs involved in servicing. Is there anything that can be done to avoid this?

Allan: Obviously there’s a lot of work that should generally be done by the mechanic in the workshop, but there are a few things that can help. You can fit an extra fuel filter to later model diesel engines to stop contaminated fuel from blocking up your injectors and fuel system. Owner servicing is another option and it’s only really limited to the mechanical knowledge of the operator and the equipment they have available. There are a lot of smaller jobs that owners can do at home and if they’re done regularly, should help to keep costs down. 

A.P: Could you give me some examples of these jobs? What can be checked without going to a workshop?

Allan: As I mentioned, it’s up to the operator’s mechanical knowledge and their access to equipment, but they can change the oil and their filters....Read More

Safari Snorkel

Many people ask us why we distribute Safari Snorkel and not the cheaper brands.

It has to do with a number of factors. 



1st as you have heard us say throughout our videos, clean air is vital to the life and performance of the engine. Water will hydraulic lock the engine and dust creates a sand paper effect when it mixes with grease. 
Both cause expensive engine damage.

The best way to keep engine air intake clean is by regular filter changes and a good quality snorkel. 


Knowing this, we then choose Safari Snorkels due to their designs Read more...

Q&A with Allan Gray - Air Filtration Part 3

środa, 12 listopad 2014 11:12


A.P: What are your thoughts on blowing an air filter out with an air hose at the local service station – good/bad or only when needed?

Allan: You haven’t really got much choice, but if you tap it on the ground a bit get most of the dirt out and then blow it from the inside out until you can’t see any more dust – that’s all you can do and I believe it will be adequate.

A.P: So  – take an extra spare filter (at least one), try to keep them as clean as possible, check them regularly, and try to avoid situations where you’re blocking it up.

Allan: Unless you want to talk about snorkels, the use of snorkels doubles the life of the motor in heavy dust conditions! If you watch a film of vehicles in convoy, the only thing protruding above the damaging dust is the snorkel head!

A.P: Wow, ok. This is a classic; leave the snorkel head on forwards or backwards?

Allan: Nah, turn it backwards ....Read more
