  1. could go real simple for the heater couple of pc fans drawing air from some 2 inch exhaust tubing tucked under exhaust manifold then flexi tube it ahead of radiator so you dont get fumes. would demist mint.
  2. While your attacking the firewall should recess it 100mm so a Barra will fit..... Probably better to fit heater unit out of something 90's spec and Japanese the triumph units fill with leaves and rust out, or the internal gates seize and give you full time hot feet or wind in your face.
  3. There is a user on here called sparrow hes dropped a lexus v8 in a stag same engine bay as a mk2 basically . Hes using my old independent ford 9" diff in it and my wheels from my mk1. See if his links still work.
  4. My lexus to triumph sump was a 10mm thick flange with the pick up points for the trans at the back end, then welded the pan off an old small block chev i had floating around and modded pickup to suit. If you have a front sump supposedly possible to carefully cut the gearbox mounts off the ass end rotate the thing 180 degrees then weld back on for a rear sump. Not forgetting pickup mods too. Pretty sure steering rack will be in your way if front sump is tried i could be wrong though.
  5. Lexus v8 is a bitch to fit in one of these i sunk one into my mk1 back in 2003 custom sump headers everything is tight and in the way. Ls1 with a camaro sump would be way easier Commodore headers would fit with a few pipes tickled.
  6. Swap you the motor off my scooter? http://oldschool.co.nz/index.php?/topic/54857-daves-garage-dregs-combined-scooter-thing/
  7. Might grab a spare set of carbs its not first time its done this my old man tells me today.
  8. Tried blowing jets out with airgun and dropped drains on float bowls let it flow for a bit no real difference after putting it back together.
  9. Just resurrected my long dormant bike its been parked up since 2002 my dads taken it on the odd ride here and there. But it has been neglected since 2010 so has needed a few new parts to get it to start again new battery coils and drained tank and float bowls today, Few shots of engine start in a can she fired up and ran on 3 and smoked like fuck eventually cleared itself, set off for a ride gave it some berrys and it cleared its throat and screamed to the readline thru the gears on all 4 cylinders. Sweet its cured i thought till i pulled up in the drive it died. Now it wont do anything but idle and it needs 3/4 throttle to achieve that any ideas? Its running on all 4 (pipes are hot) but yeah its not happy.
  10. After several attempts to make the smaller chain work i just couldn't get it to stay on the sprockets, so after some head scratching how i could get a sprocket in 420 chain small enough to fit i ordered a 17 tooth front sprocket from a random dirt bike off trademe. After killing 3 or so drill bits it got 4 holes in it and bolted on it now works and doesnt throw chains. The carb however has decided to jam at 3/4 throttle and again at idle. Anyone know if a trademe universal 2 stroke carb might work?
  11. Seeing as ive turned my back rim into this square shaped thing I've cracked into some other things i needed, like getting more power and more RPM'S Ello governor your services will no longer be required while i had the muffler off to access that bastard device i noticed how shit the exhaust port is........ 30 minutes with a file it should flow way better now. Which of course led me looking in here Rocker Arms have ass loads of gap so have closed those up hopefully giving me a bit more lift it runs good and is way more snappy on the blip of the throttle now however i'm contemplating whipping the head off and porting the fuck out of it as there is plenty of meat able to be removed and maybe shave the head a bit for more compression. Then an exhaust that doesn't choke it to death would surely help.
  12. Got run off road today by grumpy old prick in a 4wd lunched chain and cracked a wheel. Took it too a car park out by puketirini lake here in Huntly to avoid upsetting anyone mission failed there FFS. Hopefully can get a new wheel or im breaking welder out again to adapt something else.
  13. Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/252617889949 Hmm wonder if this is actually a thing.
  14. Will get something up soon waiting on a back ordered throttle cable all the test runs have been by banging the throttle onto rabbit and holding on flicking the kill switch if it gets to hairy. Once ive got the cable will gut the governor too its bloody intrusive.
  15. Ass puckering handling at speed round corners while giving it berrys steps it out like a bitch! Weirdly controllable standing up though just feels sketchy hop off gas it straightens up. Super fun!
