Title: Batty Wagon (Sara's 109)
Post by: lozzaboy on April 16, 2016, 12:19:27 pm
Just realised theres no thread for Batty Wagon here  whstle so to get started heres the Stage 1 rear axle we got from Drew for Batty Wagon, after being shot blasted and primed found out the shock mounts were buggered  Skd so thinking they would be the same as Debender ones ordered some from YRM. arrived, very well made, but not the same as I thought  FRSsml my own fault so set about making them fit instead  wdesmle

Sorted out the pipework for the air filter, turbo and intercooler this afternoon after giving the footwell a good coating of paint and stone guard  beforehand

After seeing how Munkie had done this set up on Brenda and noticing that the pipe from the turbo was catching the bulkhead support bracket I made my own bracket to overcome this problem

Took the Wolf locker to work this week and when it was quite took the chance to give it a clean up and paint ready to fit at the weekend. A bit of measuring and a bit hole appears!!!

(http://i.imgur.com/4XBGmxmh.jpg) (http://imgur.com/4XBGmxm)

After carefully cutting and grinding it back just enough, and cutting the right side down to clear the rear bulkhead slope the first proper test fit happened!!! (Had to cut away a strengthening plate at the top and behind where the locker goes to fit it too)

(http://i.imgur.com/oWnXOvfh.jpg) (http://imgur.com/oWnXOvf)

Then took the time to clean up, paint and rustproof the area before fitting.

(http://i.imgur.com/29NXyVSh.jpg) (http://imgur.com/29NXyVS)

(http://i.imgur.com/Yi8MYYZh.jpg) (http://imgur.com/Yi8MYYZ)

Then slid it into place, holes drilled and riveted in, along with a couple of additional bolts in the top and rear corners, along with the new battery cables passed through into it too through a larger hole drilled out before with a holesaw.

Little bit more progress today after a bit of a clear out around here, stripped down the spare axle in the week for the back plates and a few other bits for other people and and got the Stage one axle stripped ready for the new back plates.

(http://i.imgur.com/JPGazMfh.jpg) (http://imgur.com/JPGazMf)

Replacement backplates cleaned up and given a coat of black paint before fitting and longer studs for the Wolf rims fitted too.

(http://i.imgur.com/k5uH5Mqh.jpg) (http://imgur.com/k5uH5Mq)

Need a new seal for the N/S hub so chucked a bit of black paint on the O/S hub and some old drums ons for now until the brakes from the current axle get checked over and transferred over.

Still need to get a seal for that rear hub so this morning I finished off cleaning all the old army paint from the windscreen that I started doing in the week and re-done the bottom welds on the front cross member, as it wasn't very well done back at Sara's parents house when we removed the power steering etc.

Old axle removed one red oxide applied

(http://i.imgur.com/sxUEFNSh.jpg) (http://imgur.com/sxUEFNS)

Meanwhile the girls cracked on with the painting whilst we did a bit of welding and checked and swapped the brakes over

(http://i.imgur.com/B2A7LJYh.jpg) (http://imgur.com/B2A7LJY)

Not alot done today but got the rear hub seal done, redid the paint on the rear cross member and fitted the NATO hitch and trailer socket, but still need to wire it up though.

So today was the day the front diff got swapped for a 3:54 ratio one, so a while after stripping out both hubs, fitted new longer wheel studs at the same time so did't do the unbolt the complete swivel trick this time, this then happened!

(http://i.imgur.com/PDg8tlhh.jpg) (http://imgur.com/PDg8tlh)

Also new seals fitted to the hubs and then thought when refitting the brakes I thought I'd try moving round 1 hole to aid access to the brake cylinders in the future.

(http://i.imgur.com/Y01ugxth.jpg) (http://imgur.com/Y01ugxt)

Once all refitted etc, quick clean up and paint of red oxide ready for Sara to add pink to match the rear axle!

So somehow I ended up painting the front axle pink  jwdrp

(http://i.imgur.com/FgPrGvFh.jpg) (http://imgur.com/FgPrGvF)

Still gotta bleed the bakes etc but after getting the hard top last weekend during Hallowleafers though I'd best get that swapped over in and place, firstly I had to take it off TET.

(http://i.imgur.com/4oGIeIMh.jpg) (http://imgur.com/4oGIeIM)

We did hope to keep the roll bar fitted on Batty Wagon, but it seemed a fair bit of chopping would of been in order so in the end this happened  wdesmle

(http://i.imgur.com/h7N0OB8h.jpg) (http://imgur.com/h7N0OB8)

Some new seals fitted and the spare windscreen to replace the one with the broken glass and ta da!!!!

(http://i.imgur.com/dj8z3lsh.jpg) (http://imgur.com/dj8z3ls)

And getting ready to have the bed in the fully I drilled through the corners of the rear storage lockers to cut out and make doors for later on

Fair old effort going into that. The new paint-job looks to be killing two birds with one stone, as it should also prove a highly effective anti-theft system - ingenious!

The paint job is purely Sara's choice, but like you say it might put the light fingered types off it lol
Fentiger very kindly gave us a rear door last week, just needed the skin taken off and  cut off the rear of the frame and weld in new parts after ordering from YRM that came late last week too  wdesmle

Ran out of cutting discs to properly put new repair sections in for the centre sections so just used some 5mm flat bar to brace it to the bottom instead.

Been a while as I'v been concentrating on getting Ralph sorted but hit a point where I cant do much more so we decided to have a weekend spent on Batty Wagon (even more so as we're booked in for Birmabright again this year and plan to take Batty Wagon) Fentiger very kindly popped round this morning and helped sort out the mess of wires that are in the engine bay, and connected some up and ripped some out and check away too  :Dancing-Chilli1group: also bleed and adjusted the brakes up, fit the missing bolts from the steering box, fitted new shock absorbers to the rear as well (how much of a pain is that bottom nut to get started!!!!  FRSsml ) Sara's done most the work on the body though, rubbing down, etch priming in places and getting the roof painted ready for the new roof rack to be fitted  onto  Banana

Got a very big step closer to getting Batty Wagon back on the road this weekend, mainly thanks to Fentiger working his wiring magic again today  wdesmle
Firstly he had to check and make notes on fitting the timed glow plug relay  Banana

(http://i.imgur.com/K2BdWLJh.jpg) (http://imgur.com/K2BdWLJ)

In place and just the lights, horn, washers and fan to reconnect now

(http://i.imgur.com/uBdH0ZHh.jpg) (http://imgur.com/uBdH0ZH)

And a while later he even managed to start it and have the engine running too  whoo

Yesterday we set about getting the roof lined with underlay and carpet

(http://i.imgur.com/FqueFV2h.jpg) (http://imgur.com/FqueFV2)

Followed by refitting the bed in the back again

Tubes the clamps pass through were too close to the legs so you couldn't get the nuts started, then said they'd send a new unit, which then just turned into a couple of parts upon arrival etc

Had an idea al little while ago to try and make a "veranda" on the back with an ramp, to aid getting in and letting the dogs in and out during the night etc so using the old tailgate I'v so far got the basics sorted so it can close up in front of the door and lower down level to clear the door too.

Started the day (after walking the dogs that is) fitting some small hoops to the roof to allow us to use one of those stretchy cargo nets as a temporary dog guard for when we're refuelling the military spec tanks etc, then popped over to Fentigers to bug him and his wiring magic where he very kindly wired up the split charge, inverter and power up to the switch pod too  whoo

Alternators are dead easy to rebuild. Usually a set of brushes and a regulator will see them working again, and they're cheap parts.

Been meaning to take both dogs out in Batty Wagon for ages so this evening we took them along to Fentiger towers (as I forgot to take his new fridge over yesterday  Hmor ) to make sure they would both be ok and be settled etc (rex was camera shy though unlike Maya)

Had the front windows and vents open as we both laid in the back with them before heading off  to make sure they were ok, only problem we had was when Rex jumped through to the front and stuck his bum in Sara's face  Iceey

Wire up 2 led lights to the side of Batty Wagon to give us light under the awning at night too.

After Batty Wagons "test runs" Euroleafing and Leafers etc its time to add a bit more modding! Sara is off to a kayak event this weekend whilst I'm at work and being a little on the short side  whstle it's not the easiest of vehicles to load the kayak onto the roof rack, so after a bit of head scratching and cutting some of the rear of the roof rack away I made a basic pulley system to load it on, only got it sorted for one side at the mo but will get it sorted to load 2 in the future.

Update on Batty Wagon now things are settling down again, the brakes have never been the best so last weekend via Emma and Mike a series servo set up arrived and was duly fitted to replace the Defender one.
Starting point
(http://i.imgur.com/Cyucqp9h.jpg) (https://imgur.com/Cyucqp9)

Old servo and pedal box out

And series set up in place

(http://i.imgur.com/gkimpKuh.jpg) (https://imgur.com/gkimpKu)

Getting a good firm brake now but the pedal isn't springing back up so guessing I will have to strip out the pivot assembly at least.

The handbrake was the next item, I recently had some parts for TET blasted including some spare handbrake back plates and oil catchers so cleaned up some serviceable expanders and adjusters and dug out some shoes I put to one side to build up a new complete assembly to just bolt straight on.

(http://i.imgur.com/ov3sQixh.jpg) (https://imgur.com/ov3sQix)

Painted it all silver as it makes it easier to see for leaks etc, more in keeping with Batty Wagon and its the paint I had to hand too  whistle

Oil seal replaced and bolted up.

One issue we found last year was the legs for the rear tailgate only work on perfectly flat ground, and without us and the dogs in the back too, so the legs (and fold out dog ramp) have gone and chains installed instead.

(http://i.imgur.com/fJOfaFIh.jpg) (https://imgur.com/fJOfaFI)

(http://i.imgur.com/mSvPLQNh.jpg) (https://imgur.com/mSvPLQN)

Chains are now in old push bike inner tubes and tucked in behind the tailgate when driving to stop rattling and allow the reg plate to be seen too. Another job was running the antenna cable for the CB and Sara attaching her Gecko as well!

Decided to move the position of the switches for the interior and awning lights to aid access from the front to the rear and vice versa, and also because the dogs like to turn them on as we drive along too  rbchn So today I popped into Screwfix (other suppliers are available) for a connection/ junction box to mount the switch panel onto, as well as add another switch to turn off the power to the light switches and volt meter but still keep power going to the usb ports and cig lighter socket.

More progress on Batty Wagon yesterday, as much as we love Rex and Maya, on the long journeys it can get a bit too much when Rex jumps on your lap and blocks your view or the road ahead! So we've fitted a dog guard to keep them at bay. It is a Debender one so the top mount didn't quite work so I made some adaptions to use the loops we've already fitted in the roof to back it easy to remove when its not needed.


(http://i.imgur.com/JUmQkgah.jpg) (https://imgur.com/JUmQkga)

It did mean though I had to move the switch panel I made the other day back a bit more to clear it though! (can still reach the kill switch with it in place though) and also added another cigarette and usb socket to the drivers side as well, which we'll need to power the cb radio and Transcool in Scotland next month.

Then yesterday I fitted a holder to the tailgate/veranda.

(http://i.imgur.com/LUKhQIPh.jpg) (https://imgur.com/LUKhQIP)

A bit of bodging later to change the front upper part to hinge open (as its in the tailgate recess) the jerrycans fits and now means when we lower the tailgate/veranda we have water on tap  whoo

Hi
Did you ever find the link for the locker catches .

Also do you have any way of keeping the chain from covering the number plate or do you have friendly plod as that would probably get a tug round me.

Finally got round to connecting up the drivers side fuel tank  whoo  First thing was to borrow the return fitting from one of Tet's fuel tanks whilst he's still in bits.
(http://i.imgur.com/rRQllrih.jpg) (https://imgur.com/rRQllri)

Took the change over tape that wasn't being used off Batty Wagon to rebuild and replace the cork gasket

Also had to sort this out  FRSsml

Refitted and set up for the fuel supply.

(http://i.imgur.com/Kz3X6Lth.jpg) (https://imgur.com/Kz3X6Lt)

And dug out one we we kindly given 3 years ago after we took the AWFFR to Goodwood and connected up for the fuel return, both are set up so you turn the leavers towards the tank being used.
(http://i.imgur.com/HKkicNHh.jpg) (https://imgur.com/HKkicNH)

Instead of using the switches on the taps to connect to the fuel gauge, I fitted another fuel gauge instead. Batty Wagons military gauges has the fuel on the bottom, leaving a blank space on the right.

Been doing some woodwork in the back of Batty Wagon lately. Sara's always wanted an easier way to access things kept under the bed, so a few measurements etc and a trip to B&Q later I bring back a jigsaw puzzle!
(http://i.imgur.com/YBFdmdKh.jpg) (https://imgur.com/YBFdmdK)

First thing was to make up some spacers to allow the draw to be pulling out and pushed back in without catching the door etc.(http://i.imgur.com/fYf3wFMh.jpg) (https://imgur.com/fYf3wFM)

Once that was done and I knew the size I could use the draw was made up.

Instead of using draw runners like most people have, to keep it more simple to build I opted for a few (40) ball bearing runners.(http://i.imgur.com/ZmAumFzh.jpg) (https://imgur.com/ZmAumFz)

Along with a small lid/table top to go on top as well its all ready for testing before we do anything else to it  wdesmle

With the 4 leaf para's still riding too high a very good friend kindly gave me their old spare set of paras to try out on Batty Wagon. They had been outside for a while and fitted with polly bushes so until I get chance to fit them I'v been getting rid of all the rust and getting them painted to match the rest of Batty Wagon.
