Well it is done Oka 45 has a 6BT in her, it took 2 week to do.THAT HAS TO BE A WORLD RECORD ......
It is not an xtr (xt rebuild ) but a XT CHIP That is XT Chook-Harry-Ian-Paul
A very big thank you to those guys, what a great bunch of blokes they are so full of knowledge, the work that they did is faultless in every way
Also a thank you to Cameron for your help
thank you Thomas for letting me steel your alternator ( hope you got anther one by now

Fuel i used 105 liters from Yass to Ian's place in Melbourne 628 km with the Perkins and a 6x4 trailer on the back of the Oka
I used the same amount on the way home with the Perkins in the 6x4 trailer and the extra weight of the Cummins
and here goes. It was 40 min faster and only changed gears one time from 5th to 4th and that was going up the hill on the Hume hway where the Wagga Wagga turn off is.
Am i happy.... yep i still have a smile on my face it is so much nicer to drive. In my opinion it made a great vehicle better.
I know you all want to know how much did it cost.....
Sorry that is between Paul Ian and myself cant give away to many secrets
Again a very big thank you to you Paul for every thing that you did for me work wise and after hours ( i owe you big time )
thank you Ian for you shed and your time even though you had to say that prayer to get old 045 to leave
Thank you Chook for your help you and me 4 hours to get the old Perkins out and on the ground big thanks
Cameron for the plasma cutter and warm welcome
Thomas for you alternator and a few headaches less
Greg for you warm Oka friendship ( i still owe you for a dinner )
Darren for showing me around sorry we could not have that race that you where after 6Bt against 6 cylinder Perkins ( like i said Perkins 4 or 6 = donkey Cummins = thoroughbred ( you know what we mean ) cheers
In this 2 week world record i also had
an input shaft upgrade , front tail shaft upgrade from 1350 to 1410 unis, new steering box out with the Kerby and in with the TRW
again a big thank you
Ian And Paul you are most definitely OKA ledgend i learned a lot from you all
cheers happy Oka ring

Great job from the Melbourne Boys, certainly the way to go if you have the 30k plus for them to do it. They have been there and done that several times now. Think they may have done more XT`s than LT`s at this stage.

Both men are very knowledgeable on all things OKA.

What did you need for the Plasma cutter for?

Seems like it was a big couple of weeks for everyone.

Where did you get your Cummins from?

THE DARK SIDE is getting to me
We are just back from a test run in the 6bt , only a small run just to settle it all in . WE did 5459 km mostly at 2200 rpm and doing 90 kph from Yass to the Golf country and back, saw Lightning Ridge again as we have not been there for some time (MIGHT be a place for an OKA gathering ))) nice hot spa there 41 degrees and free NICE. also a few other things to do in town , JUST a thought ....

Back to the Oka a bit over 5 ton, 5459 km used 1007 liters fuel that works out to be 17.56 liters per 100 km with head wind and hills that dont seem to be there anymore..

A big thanks to you Paul ,Ian and ckook a job well done .... i think that it mad a Great vehicle BETTER . i wont tell you the top speed that i got old 45 up to as Jenny wont be happy but it did go off the clock and then some mmmmm on a flat road and a slight headwind.

Also we had a few 33 to 35 degrees days and the temp sat on 80 to 83 degrees even with the aircon going Thank you Paul for that 5 core radiator it was money well spent your advice is worth bottling

Good to hear all the success with 6bt`s.

Just got to remember to fish plate the chassis where engine mounts are.

Many OKA`s have cracked in this area with just the Perkins. With the weight of the 6bt, it could crack sooner, rather than later.

Seen it on low kms OKA`s with a relevant easy life.

It depends on how you drive them, so guess tourist buses could have the hardest life.


Bout time rust and dust you introduced yourself. Do you own an OKA, what do you know about them????

Old post I know......

Just think its time that Rust and Dust tells us more about themselves..... Seem to be online regularly. So would be nice if he had something to share.

Perhaps we should do like other forums, you need to introduce yourself etc.
