Heres a contribution to get the forum started...
The wiring loom on the 4trak is clipped underneath the vehicle on the nearside. Just in front of the rear wheel it goes up and over a chassis cross member...on older vehicles it can get chaffed with the constant rubbing on this cross member. Personal experience has shown me that if this happens a major short can occur. This is a potential fire hazzard.11 of the 24 wires that run through the loom melted together on my vehicle causing huge problems with the wiring.
I urge all 4trak owners (especially those who have older vehicles)to check their wiring loom.
Contamination of rear brakes.........Another annoying problem I have experienced is the failure of the rear half shaft oil seals..if this happens axle oil will get into the brake drum and contaminate the brake shoes..instant m.o.t. failure.
Replacement seals are available from Millners for pennies.
You will have to strip down the brake and use a puller to remove the the half shaft..very easy to do.Replacement of seals is a cinch !
I have the full 4trak manual and am willing to help out anyone who needs assistance.
