How Do I Do This? / Re: want air on my 404hi
« Last post by shaggy on February 15, 2020, 06:47:35 pm »
Hey,

We have (what I think is) an original 404 air compressor kicking about somewhere. We eventually decided we didn't want to have something uneccesary spinning all the time, and got a 24V electric one from a fire appliance. Which we've not got round to fitting.

It goes to the left of the engine (looking from the front), slightly further out from the genny/alternator.

Happy to send you a picture, and could be talked into selling it as we're unlikely to use it.

We found making cross section of cills to look like this l/ prevented them bellying quite so bad in challenge events.

I quite like the Grand Vitara rims I have them on the Blitz, only problem I can see is they are going to increase your turning circle over standard off set rims which is not good for trials but if you are only competing against landrovers it's not going to cause you any issues

Yes fiat twin cam was a common swap, quite hard to come by now. They share the same engine block as the lada so we're a straight swap. My powerplant swap Is going to be a more modern approach 👍
