Are Your Donuts Stuffed?

A donuts comparison.Donuts are the heart of a Mokes suspension. Unfortunately they wear out, making your Moke look a bit down at the front. Here's how to tell if they need replacing.

Replacement for Shock Absorber bolt on rear trailing arm.

Replacing the rear shock absorber mounting stud with a bolt can save you the time, effort and expense of having to remove the remains of a broken stud from the trailing arm which is becoming more common as the Mokes get older. A fairly simple task that can be done on the bench during a restoration or spending an hour or less in the garage jacking up the rear of the Moke, either way much quicker than the three to four hours you might spend trying to remove the remains of the stud if it breaks.

DIY Wheel Alignment

usRacingMoke 5Getting the front wheel alignment right on your Moke can make it feel more responsive to drive, can make your tyres last a whole lot longer and because there is really only one adjustment, the Toe, then you can do it yourself. Not having the front wheels aligned properly can lead to excessive tyre wear, less direct response when cornering and the most noticeable the tendency to pull the car to the left or right when you want to travel it straight ahead. You will need a Ball Joint Breaker, otherwise the rest of the tool should be in your toolbox.

Off Road Tyre Choices

Dmack tyre on Sunraysia RimMokes left the factory wearing Winter Tread style tyres that were probably practical for the agricultural market but a pretty poor choice for the bitumen. For some people though it is a look they want to re-create on their Moke, an aggressive chunky tyre type look while for other owners looking to go bush, the diminishing range of 13" passenger tyres just aren't really suitable and new Winter Treads tyres aren't available. The only choice, read more expensive, available is the small range of competition rally tyres and in this article I attempt to identify what is available.

Wheel Studs

StudsTitle100Mokes have been fitted with a few different wheel studs over the years. If you need to replace them, it is important that you use the correct ones.

Powdercoating Sunraysia Wheels

Sunraysia2Title100Nothing makes grubby old Sunraysias look better than having them powder coated. And for the price I wouldn't even bother trying to paint them! But there are a few things you should be aware of.

 

Sunraysia Wheel Nuts

Sunraysia2Title100Sunraysia's are instantly recognisable and one of the most popular wheels ever fitted to Mokes. Unfortunately most people pay less attention to the wheel nuts that hold them on - even though they are more important as far as safety is concerned.
