  1. feels like ive been making no progress on this thing even thoough ive been slamming heaps of time at it. Discovered the possible reason why it had a full engine rebuild 5000km ago, at 65,000 kms, when these things are known for clocking up 200K+ without being opened. Some fucking Einstein obviously tried to make an incorrect battery fit, and thought shit, this piece of plastic cant be that important, ill just hack into it so make room. Too bad they weren't clever enough to realise that the hole they just made is he back of the airbox, behind the filter, allowing all sorts of gru

  4. Little bit more progress... they're back filling the foundation, you can see we've had to come up quite high on the blocks to satisfy the floor level with the council (flood hazard zone). It wont look as pronounced once we get the ground level back with some fill/top soil and there will be a small bit of decking around the front here. Have also had my negotiation hat on for the provisional cost revisions which are coming back, keeping em honest.

  5. Finally decided to pull the head off. And make sure it's a 5K. 80mm bore. 156mm pushrods and solid lifters. Dished pistons. Good news all round. Next move. New cam. Recommendations? I assume as it's a solid lifters I just get 3k/4k grind? It's got a bit of surface rust bust hopefully the cam place can sort this. I've always suspected I had a bit of an exhaust/intake leak. Some Muppet (being me) put my intake gasket over the original gasket . Will wait for this cam to be sorted then replace the main crank seal in the process. Bonus wheel sho

  8. And anyway cunts, can't you see that my barry on this is so thin it's two dimensional? Maybe all the jap import ones were different, all the reading I have done is on oz based forums. I have only looked inside two engines.... All I was trying to do was enjoy some nice internet based knowledge superiority and you fuckers have ruined it. I shall drink beer now in protest. And by the way that new pump is now 60% installed thanks to this evenings efforts...

  12. Once i got the 45 degree bends positioned to where i wanted i set about making the tailpipes. Originally I wanted rippled pipes and tried having a bash myself with no real results to show for it as the tube was too heavy a gauge, so ive settled for just straight pipes with a flared end which i made myself by making a tapered die on the lathe at work and used my hydraulic press to put the flare in. Id used a tow ball for my 1st goes which looked not too bad but it was hard to get the tow ball to sit perfect and it would give an uneven flare. Overall im quite happy with how the exhaust has

  14. Got the engine and box in place for hopefully the last time.. Clutch fork and release bearing is also in there. Cut the hole for the shifter.. Need to straighten the shifter as it angles too much towards the drivers seat. In reverse it gets close to the seat. If I straighten it, it'll be perfecto. Ordered all of my exhaust parts, and have a new manifold flange plate.. So look out for sketchy welds and bs looking noise cannon build. Ordered a new Ali radiator and 14" fan to match the nice oil cooler. Will need to find stock oil cooler hoses or get the

  16. That is a fucking good price. I've a weldtech mig- not quite so flash as that (not blingy lcd screen- just two knobs) Same as what @ThePog has (the welder that is - not the fact Dylan only has two knobs...in fact I believe he only has one and its not that impressive - or at least that's what @sidewaysickness mum said) Its been great and has done a huge amount of work for our business. Fantastic on car panels- very smooth (even with poverty spec co2) Greg at proline welding in Nelson is the owner/importer of weldtech. Good dude has great back up service.

  18. That means it's a later blacktop motor. Fuck I have turned into a safari barry now. Edit; Just to cement this, you need to tell me if the vac pump is in the back of the alternator or in the timing cover.

  26. I also see some double valve springs, new looking retainers and clean valves. Interesting needs a clean and some rust removal on bits..it’s obviously been pulled from the cuda or installed with no covers and some shits got I there. Gaskets cooked too so they must have put the original coronet ones back on

  28. How the hell did they get the silver / black top names if the silver or black top is meaningless? Sounds like the whole designation is meaningless tbh, and it's nothing more than a construct of Barry's who like to sound like they know what they're talking about

  33. The mag and it’s spacer is a good 150mm long, if I made something that supported the drive sprocket and I could mount this to might be a go. Then I it would fit well.

  34. This engine is also a contender for this project, it seems to be in very good condition and has never been apart. Problem is the mag is in the way of the frame, I am thinking of making up a plate with a trigger coil and running a CDI ignition or something

  38. There has been a bit of progress on this, but not a whole lot tbh. The blasting mentioned in the last post as the guy from work who was going to do it took about 6 months off on ACC. He's back now though so I might go have a chat with him today and see what's doable for him. I have purchased some bits, but mostly all my time and money have been tied up in buying and now renovating my first home! The major plus side of which is I now have my own shed, and this got moved from my parents place to there about a month or so back. PFT that reminded me to do this, from 2012 when it was sti

  39. Been looking for one of these tail bags. Found a place in Bolivia of all places making them, and a bigger version. But then this one came up locally, and it's new old stock, doesn't seem to have ever been fitted.

  46. I visited Treesus five times. All with different combinations of people, or by myself. Each visit was different and special in its own way. It's a Totara, which I estimate to be at least 600 years old. It's seen a few more Wagnats than we have.
