TECHNICAL TIPS Water Cr ossing Tec hniques Crossing echniques There are 3 main things that stop an engine working: no spark, no air and no fuel. Water crossing can affect the first 2: water shorting out the ignition system or water in the air cleaner. Ignition Sys Systtems In older vehicles there is a coil, a distributor and spark plugs. Water can enter the distributor and cause shorts inside the distributor cap and under the caps of spark plugs. Water can also short out the spark plug leads if there are cracks in the insulation. Newer vehicles don’t have a distributor, but still have spark plugs and leads. In some cases the spark plugs are inside the heads and are protected from water. But if the leads are perished, water can still short them out. In newer vehicles there are also computers controlling the motor, gearbox, etc, which can also be affected by water. In older vehicles silastic was used to seal the distributor cap and spark plugs. The same can be done on newer vehicles. Air Cleaner s Cleaners Water can enter the air cleaner and stop the air flow or be sucked in and stop the engine. Older vehicles’ air intakes were usually in the centre of the engine bay above the carburettor. It was easy to fit a piece of pipe that could be run to the back of the engine bay where there was less chance to suck in water. Newer vehicles have air intakes either behind the headlight or between the top of the grille and the bonnet. These air intakes are designed to ram air into the air cleaner, the trouble is that they also ram water into the air filter. The better designed air inlet systems have water traps, which remove the water before it can enter the air filter. The safest system is to have a snorkel fitted.

Water Cr ossing Tec hniques (contin ued) Crossing echniques (continued) Bef ore Crossing Before Do you really need to drive through the water? Is there another way or a shallower crossing? Anything above doorsill height deserves caution. Vehicles can float and water can enter the cabin. Deep water crossings should never be attempted alone, except in an emergency. Before you enter any water, you must check the path you plan to find any big rocks or deep holes hidden under the water and check the firmness of the bottom and the current flow. A radiator blind prevents water being forced through the front grille, then through the radiator core resulting in flooding of the engine bay. Removing or loosening the fan belt will prevent the fan blade from being driven into the radiator and splashing water all over the engine. If you have electric fans, turn them off. Also turn off the air conditioner. If the engine and transmission are very hot consider letting them cooling down before entering the water; especially engines fitted with turbo chargers. The Crossing Enter the water slowly, then increase speed to build a bow wave and maintain the momentum, which effectively lowers the water level around the engine and behind the vehicle. Driving too fast could cause water to surge over the bonnet and flood the engine bay. Don’t change gear while in the water. Travel diagonally to the current flow. If you start floating, open a door and fill the vehicle with water. Af Aftter Crossing On leaving the water, always drive a short distance with the foot brake lightly depressed to dry out the brake linings. Upon returning home after water crossings, check the diff and gearbox oils for water contamination, especially after long or deep water immersions.

SOCIAL DIRECTOR’S REPORT There is a long weekend coming up, May Day 30 April to 2 May that requires a trip leader. If you want to run one of these trips or a trip to somewhere else, that’s fine, just contact me, and I will help with the details. The trip sheet has been modified to include the maximum number of vehicles allowed on a club trip and if personal permits are required. The maximum number of vehicles is at the discretion of the trip leader, but for forestry trips it is set at 15 as a condition of the permit.

BOURNE’S BACK The Bourne name, which has been so integrally linked with Silverstone Race to the Sky, will be showcased again at this year’s event, with the surprise announcement that Peggy Bourne will compete in the race as a personal tribute to Possum. Possum died tragically following an accident on the Waiorau Snow Farm road on Good Friday two years ago. Event promoter Grant Aitken says Possum was always the Race to the Sky’s most loyal supporter. “He loved the event and loved to bring his family to it. To have Peggy compete this year is very exciting for us and we know the crowds will love to see her racing in memory of Possum.” Peggy says entering the race is the perfect way for her to celebrate Possum’s life. “Of all the events he entered, this had a special place in his heart,” she says. Peggy recently attended the Dale Perry’s Rally Drive NZ rally school in the Maramarua Forest to complete her competition licence and get a better understanding of how her Subaru WRX Impreza entry would handle. “I loved it. It was an awesome experience and gave me the confidence I need to enter Race to the Sky.” Internationally renowned co-driver Mark Stacey will join Peggy in her debut performance. Peggy says she is looking forward to facing the challenge alongside Mark, who was one of Possum’s co-drivers and a long-time friend. Her support team is made up of a group of key sponsors and supporters who have been close friends of Possum, Peggy and the family. “Winger Subaru is providing the car with additional mechanical support, McDonalds, STI (Subaru Japan’s motorsport division), Subaru New Zealand, CRC, Hella, Caltex, and Flamecrusher are all involved,” she says. “I am thrilled and so appreciative of each of the sponsors’ generous offers of support. I wouldn’t be able to make this tribute without them.”

8


BOURNE’S BACK Peggy will also be working with Emmy award winning producer Julian Grimmond of the Mountain Film Unit, which is the Race to the Sky’s media partner, to produce a documentary of her race challenge. “When we heard Peggy was going to race we knew it would make an incredible story. The event is exciting and world renowned and this adds another dimension to it,” says Julian. The 2005 Silverstone Race to the Sky is scheduled for Easter Weekend, March 26 and 27 at The Snow Farm in Cardrona Valley, close to Queenstown and Wanaka.

TEMPORARY REP AIRS TO SPLIT BOOTS REPAIRS With the high price of C.V.’s and D.0.J.��€™s, it pays to keep a close eye on the boots. As with anything, prevention is better than cure and the best way to prevent damage is to fit large boot protector flaps. For additional peace of mind, it would be worth considering carrying an emergency boot repair kit, especially on longer trips. The kit should contain panty hose or stockings, glad wrap, cable ties, duct tape, scissors and suitable grease.

If the boots are torn or split, either because of old age or because of damage on a trip, then there are a number of simple things that you can do to get the vehicle home so that the boot can be replaced with the least possible damage done to the joint. First, find the split boot before too much grease has been flicked out or dirt has entered. Telltale signs of boot damage include the smell of burnt grease on the exhaust, grease being flicked out under the car and up the rear gate, and clicking noises (too late).

16


The main aim is finding the split boot early and then bandaging it up. Once the damaged boot has been found, try to clean the joint out a bit and pack a little more grease in if you have some. Panty hose is one of the best bandages to use, however in an emergency glad wrap, plastic bags or even any type of cloth can be used. The repair material can be wound on, making sure the end is rotating in the direction of the wheel. Once wound over the joint, the repair material should be tied on with cable ties and then taped up with duct tape. The rear D.0.J.’s are easiest to do, especially with a lift kit fitted, followed by the front inner D.0.J.’s. The front outer C.V.’s are the hardest due to lack of room. When using the stockings on D.0.J.’s, wrap the pant part around with the toes pointed towards the gearbox or diff. Then wrap the legs around in opposite directions and tie on to cup part of the D.0.J. Then tie the other end around the axle. If the pant part does not fully cover the boot, cut out some tabs and tie them up. Jack the wheel up and then wrap the legs in opposite directions along the boot, while somebody turns the wheel, and tie the legs together on the axle. For the outer C.V.’s, it is best to cut a section out of a stocking leg and use cable ties at both ends, and then tape up. Plastic can also be used with cable ties and duct tape. Check the repair regularly to ensure that it is holding together and that you are not losing too much grease from the joint. A well-performed repair can survive for thousands of kilometres, but the boot should be replaced and the joint should be checked for damage as soon as possible.

RALLY NEWS WR C – Rally Ne w Zealand – Rd 4 WRC New This event is a favourite amongst the drivers because of the smooth fast and flowing roads. Subaru’s new number two driver Queensland’s Chris Atkinson was the talk of the event after leg 1. He was in 5th place after setting 2 fastest stage times, and this is in only his 3rd WRC event. He later slipped to finish in 7th place after experimenting with suspension and transmission settings. With a 7th place he gained his first 2 WRC points. Also in the unexpected heat and hard packed roads the team’s Pirelli tyres were no match for the latest spec Michelin tyres that the winning Citroen team used. His Subaru team mate Petter Solberg, who also suffered tyre wear problems, managed to finish in 3rd place to stay in 1st place in the Championship. The other big news for Subaru was Aussie driver Cody Crocker and his new co-driver Dale Moscatt won the Group N class finishing in 12th place overall in their new Possum Bourne Motor sport built Spec C WRX. Team mate Dean Herridge with his new co driver Bill Hayes did not fare so well slipping off the road and getting stuck in a ditch on day one. The co-driver changes at Team Subaru Australia were brought about because Cody’s long time co-driver Greg Foletta took on the role as team manager, whilst Dean Herridge’s old co-driver Glenn Nacneall is now Chris Atkinson’s co-driver in the WRC series. Positions – 1 Sebastien Loeb Citroen, 2 Marcus Groholm Peugeot, 3 Solberg Subaru, 4 Francois Duval Citroen, 5 Markko Martin Peugeot. Championship Points (Driver) – Solberg 26, Loeb 25, Martin 23, Gronholm 20, Gardemeister 20. Championship Points (Manufacturer) – Peugeot 43, Citroen 31, Subaru 28, Ford 26, Mitsubishi 24.

HEARD THE NEWS Luc ky escape – Club President Camo Neilsen had a lucky escape last month Lucky while ridging his Suzuki bike down near Thredbo on the big annual Ulysses Motor cycle Club get together in Canberra, which thousands of riders attend from all over the country. He was stopped with a group of riders on the side of the road just over a brow, when another rider from another group of riders who were travelling behind them, came over the brow travelling at about 40 kph and ran into the back of Camo. Camo was knocked off his bike, but with his protective clothing on, he survived but ended up a bit battered and bruised. The other rider came off too. Unfortunely the bikes did not fare too well, with Camo’s bike skidding along the bitumen wearing a hole in an engine cover. After the accident Camo had a pillion ride with Subaru 4WD Club life member Clint Lovell to the nearby Cooma hospital for a check up, where he was given the all clear. His bike is currently being assessed by his insurance company. Camo made it home, helping out another Queensland rider by riding his big Honda Gold Wing home, because the owner became ill and was not feeling up to the long ride. Fir st time competit or – Possum Bourne’s widow Peggy had her first ever Firs competitor taste of competition rally driving at this year’s Race To The Sky hill climb held in New Zealand. She was driving a rally prepared WRX and her co-driver was Mark Stacey who was also Possum’s co-driver. Her finishing position was a creditable 82nd place out of 125 competitors. It is now 2 years since Possum’s recce collision death at this event. The winner was Japanese driver ‘Monster’ Tajima driving his Suzuki 4WD hill climb special, featuring a mid engine V6 twin turbo developing up to 735 kw of power. In 2nd place was Kenneth Eriksson, a former WRC driver and former team mate of Possum Bourne. He was driving Possum’s old 2 door WRC car specially built for this event. Another interesting Subaru that finished in 5th place was a Kiwi built WRX fitted with a turbo charged H6 engine developing up to 480 kw.

HEARD THE NEWS It pa ys tto o belong – Over the years many members have benefited from the pays higher grades of car insurance. One such policy is the RACQ’s Ultra Care. It costs a little extra but it has a lot more features such as getting your car tilt trayed home so it can be repaired. It has helped Big John Mckenna on the 1997 desert trip when his first model Rodeo chassis broke. More recently it helped Bryan Johntson when he bent a front suspension arm on his Forester at Ballina beach. Then on the recent Easter trip, Ultra Care helped Christine Barry after Ron Penfold towed her L series to an accessible town after a cam belt tensioner bolt broke. 4WD TTV V sho w – Now there is an Australian produced 4WD show on Brisbane’s show community TV channel BRIS 31. It is an half hour show and is shown at 1.30 pm on Saturday afternoons and it is repeated on Tuesday nights at 8.30 pm. It mainly covers bigger 4WD’s but has info about all the new products and has a segment on Clubs. The only problem is BRIS 31 has a weak transmission signal and is hard to pick up in some areas. That should change later this year when a new more powerful transmission tower is built.
