Towing capabilities

G'day All

Just wondering what it takes for a 6cyl WB Tonner to tow 3.5t (apart from engine upgrade). Is it chassis strength, towbar rating? Do brakes have anything to do with it?

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers
Al

WB Remote Mirrors

I've got the old style (cable operated) remote mirrors on my WB Statesman. They had similar on drivers side of HZ Statesman...and possibly some other models..anyway both the drivers and passengers haven't worked properly...thought maybe a broken cable or similar after looking on line. Today I fitted a new weather seal on the drivers door so with the trim off removed the mirror to have a look.

WB factory AC Fan motor acting Strange

I have a Wb with Factory Air
For some reason lately when the engine temp goes up from sitting at lights etc and the thermofan comes on, after a bit the ac fan starts acting up as if its loosing power.
It slows down and sort of pulses
It only does it on 1,2,3 fan settings. if i switch it to 4 its Ok
I felt the fan motor and it was Hot
I was thinking its the motor itself as the fan resistors are working
As soon as the engine temp goes down the fan works again
Its like the amount of heat in the engine bay is adding to the issue
