Hi Paul,
Got it from Kudauk :  https://www.kudauk.ltd.uk/product/black-diesel-airhorn

£52 incl VAT & shipping

The horn alternates between the two every second or so, but you can rewire it to blow both together I believe.

Thanks Moose.  Iíve been giving that some thought since you posted it.  Does the weight concern arise from inadequate engine power to pull up up hills, from overloading the chassis and/or suspension, going over the 7.5 tonne limit or something else?

Because I was already 90% through it, Iíve now almost completed the bull bar a was fabrication for it.  However, because of your concern over weight Iíve made it very simple to install or remove...





Iíve also completed the air horn installation by plumbing it into the palm coupling up front and swapping out the NRV & filter with a PRV set at 10 bar....

Picked up a rear winch bracket today from the same local fabrication company.
Now just need to check it fits, paint it and buy another winch (£££ ouch).

Photos of air-horn install to follow this weekend (hopefully).....

I would like to see something like this in the Uk
Moose
Youíd have my support.
However - donít we have too many tree-huggers.... and post-Brexit, no one will be allowed to enter the UK.
Having said that, the GBP will be worth so little we will need their foreign currency.....

Thanks - watched it last night.
Quite interesting, though such a shame the effect everything had on several relationships.
OMG - I would so love to do the Bresleau Rally. Just need a fee £í000.... :D

The really interesting starts around 2:00 mins in.....

Sheís booked in at AV next month for an engine swap to an OM366A, extra fuel tank and crown wheel & pinion swap.
Getting a rear winch bracket priced up locally and plan to fit the same setup to the rear.
Then (following your suggestion) weíre planning a trip to the Abenteur Allrad event in Germany in June to check out the camper conversion options.
Currently thinking of a composite body on the back kitted out for journeys of several months.
Then - providing the kids head off to university, we give up work for a while and head off travelling....

Thought the bracket looked a bit plain, so just sprayed these on..

Finally managed to get the winch bolted onto the mounting plate and the plate bolted to the chassis at the weekend.  Still have some final wiring to do before I can test it, but Iím fairly pleased with how it looks....

Just collected this winch bracket from a local steel fabricator.
Took delivery of a Warrior Samurai 20,000 lb winch a few weeks ago in order to take all the necessary measurements.  Passed these on the the local company and for only £225 I have this beautiful piece of engineering.
Will post additional photos as it gets painted and fitted.
Iím undecided what to do with the towing pin at the front as this will prevent the pin being dropped in from above.  One option is to get a high tensile bolt which I can insert from below.  Any thoughts...?

Genuine Mercedes Unimog Parts / Driverís seat from a U1300L
« on: February 26, 2019, 03:11:01 pm »
I took the original seat out & replaced it with a more comfortable one for long journeys.

The original one has only been used for around 20,000km so is in excellent condition.

Open to offers as it is taking up space....
