OK Brett, you are teasing.

Generally when there is a lack of knowledge, people start at best to guess or speculate, or worst case scenario: start to make things up.

Let me start the guessing game. What clues do we have?
You stated you have thrown stuff in the bin when you acquired each OKA. Or words to that effect.
When you have 5 OKAs, does that mean you have 5 'things' for sale?? Or did you really "bin" it, as you said?

Just checked: you only advertised some rims to my knowledge. You could be disposing of split rims; hmmm, the rims you were selling were both normal and split ones.

Actually the binned item is singular, not plural as you said “the no 1 thing in the bin is…..”
So it is not rims, springs or anything that they are more than one of on the OKA.

You promised "pics". That is another clue!! Surely you do not make pictures of something that is not there anymore. Does that mean you binned an item and replaced that with another one?

Hmmm, trying to find the post with the most desirable mods. Maybe you gave some clues in that thread…… in the “ultimate mod” you did not contribute that I can see.

Checked the photos of your OKAs. For a brief moment I thought I found it: your OKAs do not have sunvisors, but then….. I saw one had a visor.
Checked some of your posts, to find more clues……. If there is a clue, I missed it, but then again did not read all your posts.

Give up, I can now start to speculate: Clock with its alarm? Radio cassette player?
No, it not those. You seem to be very mechanical minded, so the binned item will in that area.

Give up again. Just worked all night. Can I blame lack of sleep for me not finding the clue???
zzzzzzzz

Hi Guy's
Be the rims, as it can be 1 item that has more than one part. I know that Brett hates the split rims. The next 2 items would be the motor and that is fine for most applications and since he has both XT and LT models, I think from memory that cuts out the LT transfer as he mainly has XT's
Good, as a guessing game any way.

Regards

Aahh, ........................ the list of contenders for the 'Oka Darwin Award' is (unfortunately) a long one.

Whilst split rims aren't every ones cup of tea, there's nothing inherently wrong with them. I'd rather be changing a 900 R 16 tyre on a split rim (in the bush) than trying to get one of my 305/70 R19.5's off and then back on the tubeless rim. But then, as an XT owner, he could be railing against the old 'single hole' split rims, but no it won't be that, as Oka, I think, recalled these and came up with the 2 hole variant.

Could it be the weak gearbox/transfer case coupling in early XT's, no, as I think Oka replaced/upgraded these as well. Perhaps the terrible plastic master/slave cylinder combo (do XT's have these too ?), definitely high on the discard list. Or maybe it's the ceramic clutch, once slipped judders and grabs forever. Perhaps Brett's playing with words and 'discard' could be as in 'design deficiency' and he means added relays to the headlights so the driver can actually see at night time.

But no I'm with Hank, even though he discarded the idea. It's that @!#$%& alarm clock that can't be turned off.

Deano :)

Wile everyone is in suspense, every generic problem of an OKA is being listed!!!

Split rims, only part of them end up in the bin,
I remove the centre's to fit new tubeless outer rims to.

Hint
both XT & LT have it

IF only you could put RUST in the bin, that would be no 01

Kirby Bishop steering box would be high on the list.
anyone who has changed one would agree, there should be a law against them!!

I was in Brett's work shop the other day with a broken handbrake on my 024, I saw a trailer load of diffs, two steering boxes out to be fixed, several handbrake assemblies, lots of rims to be made tubeless, a transfer box for the six wheeler, maybe a rear diff for the six wheeler, the multi to come off one of the oka,s and go on the six wheeler, going to perth this weekend to do some more mapping, hmmm now I am even more confused!

I think another clue would be helpful about now Brett. Unless its the shagged front end parts they all come to us with?

Lachian let the cat out.



5 KG of crap hanging off the output shaft.
LT don't unbolt, toss the whole T/C in bin!!

XT
this in what is meant to be there


+ drum, aprox 5 KG on OKA

standard 2" OKA 4" & 5KG leverage.


all hanging on 5x5/16 bolts & output shaft!.
when you can jiggle the tail shaft up & down, the needle rollers have collapsed between the input & output shafts. all so causes input shaft breakage.

*5 KG of crap dancing up & down way out back amplify the problem.
*lack of lubrication is major cause

the only time the needle rollers rotate is in low 4WD
2WD 90% use, input & output rotate together
4WD high, same, same

90% of the time the needle rollers are chattering away down the road not turning thus no lube!!
just like a king pin bearing!

finally you put it in low 4WD ? rollers collapse.

solution
*get rid of 5KG of crap of the back
* use low 4WD DAILEY
you don't need to engage hubs
when you back in the shed, setting up camp, ect ect, any slow moving use it
this gets oil into the needle rollers & moves the ware spot.

that is my 10 cents worth

ps.
in the US I have A 10" stainless disc park brake being tested .

the disc flange will fit standard np205 seal , tail shaft will need 2" added.
will work with OKA h/brake cable.
