Clutch replacement RH 160: The clutch of the 145 is different from the 160.
Basically the same fitting but a larger diameter.
The one to fit is the Exedy HNK-6750 clutch kit. You will find that the throw out bearing won't fit. In my case they machined the cradle otherwise get one that fit.  Retail price $1050  in 2015

Alternator wiring sheets attached plus the wiring of the new alternator and he worked out what needed changing, he said it was only a small task

Turbo Charger, MTA Turbochargers in QLD (07) 5571 5588 did a magnificent job in getting another one manufactured.  Firstly the original was manufactured by IHI and had a Hino part number 24111-1931A, also known as a VX-40 but this was no longer available.  MTA Turbochargers can rebuild them if the housing is not cracked so this was our first attempt at getting it repaired. Leanne and Mark searched and found through their overseas IHI supplier that a genuine one could be manufactured and sent to us…     This process was started and took approximately 8 weeks to be made and delivered to Melbourne, fitted and we have the wheels rolling again..     In 2019  $3595.00
