    Aucklands Anon Burger meet - Wed 20 February

    ^ Not this month unfortunately. I've gotta be ready to start a job at 8 in Manukau so it would have to be a very early burger. @Ghost has to carry the torch this month.

    For Questions Regarding WOFs/CERTs/NUMBER PLATEs

    perfect, should hopefully be able to dimple the cutouts too, so shouldnt be any lost strength. there are already large oval holes where i want holes anyway, no clue what for. perhaps air con was an option, but id doubt it on a 71 corona.
  6. Usually no problem if it's just a single skin radiator support panel.

    For Questions Regarding WOFs/CERTs/NUMBER PLATEs

    Can anyone tell me if i can cut/enlarge existing large holes in my radiator panel to fit inter cooler hoses though? heard no end of conflicting info. not really sure how im meant to get pipework out in front of the radiator if i cant. will need to be cert able.

    Just a thought. was it running with no air cleaner in that vid? Two smokes are jetting from the factory to have an air filter on. in my experience running without one they'll be a bag of dicks/not wanna go any good. (I had one that wouldnt start with the airbox off)
  9. Paint filters must be much bigger holes no? Because paint is much thicker than coffee. My recolection was it was a vert slow process getting used motor oil to pass through one.
  10. Along the same line as coffee filter, if you have disposable paint filters they work pretty well. I think I purchased a box of 500 or a thousand for 40 bucks maybe.
  11. Mega. Either Monday or Tuesday nights work for me, I leave Wednesday
  12. Heard a roll of toilet paper makes a good filter

    Full of enthusiasm I was excited to get this up and running again. Got the bike raised up and sitting at a nice workable height to remove the cylinder so I could repair threads for the exhaust. Got it apart super easy and attempted to drill and tap the bolt holes from m8x1.25 to m10x1.25. Got one hole done and was looking pretty good. Drilled out second hole but my tap just didn't want to start cutting... I tried and I tried and nothing... even put the tap in my drill and went slowly to see if that would start it off but nope.... swapped to m10x1.5 tap to start the thread which appeared to work. Swapped back to the fine thread tap and attempted again. When disaster struck.... the casting cracked... I was so gutted. It was all going so well!! A mate is going to attempt a repair but we'll see how that goes...
  15. Get it warm and filter it through your rope again

    A week later I had a look over it and my flatmate was adament we should try and start it. Removed fuel tank which was full of rusty shit, it had been quite sometime since this was last running... changed gear oil, cleaned up spark plug, topped up oil tank and fed some fuel to the carb. Kicked her over and fired up on the second go! Here's a short vid, excuse the laughing.... As you can see very smoky... the exhaust was only secured by one bolt and previous owner had used some tie wire to hold the rest of it up.. attempted to fit a second bolt but hole was stripped... lame. Here's the crap that I shook out of the fuel tank... have currently got it filled up with Metal Rescue to remove what's left of the rust. It's been sitting for about a week so will empty it soon and see what it looks like.

    yeh, cams in this have over 5mm/4mm - in/ex lift at tdc. Chances are it wouldn't even idle on a single throttle setup

    I had been looking for a 2 wheeled project for a while and this came up for sale cheap on Trademe. It was in Nelson but I was heading to Blenheim end of March/start of June. A fellow Datsun club member (and may be on OS too) picked up and stored for me before I was able to mish up to get it. Picked up over Queens birthday weekend and got it home. Is missing quite a few bits but hopefully shouldn't be hard to track those down.
  20. Oh hey. Off topic but I'm in town Monday and Tuesday next week and keen to catch up for a beer and/or feed one night if anyone's around? I'll be stuck in town but open to getting abducted
  21. Bin it, buy new oil Or build a centrifuge
  22. The more oldschoolers the merrier. Most turn up in modern dailies during winter. It’s more about the jugs and ribs than the rust and slam this time of year.
  23. Wanted to re-use some expensive gear oil with less than 100KM on it. Was full of glitter. Tried running it through a funnel on top of a pipe filled with rope. No luck. Cut the top off an oil filter and put it in a funnel with a magnet on the bottom, that caught the big chunks but there's fine bronze glitter oozing through the filter. (repco brand) Aside from tell me that engine oil filters aren't that picky & let through some stuff i wouldn't want in my engine, what else should i strain the oil through? Doesn't seem to wick uphill and back down into a container through a rope. Appears too thick for that.
  24. Are you guys open to peeps turning up with non Oldschool cars etc ? have been asked by a coupe of interested parties recently.

    It'll be clean, but it will still have lost a lot of its properties that makes it useful.
