  1. On hydraulic power steering a cracked belt is a fail. Some WOF inspectors may argue if the alternator belt breaks, your electric power steer will stop working and fail a cracked belt. I wouldn’t fail it, so it’s one of those interpretation things.
  2. At the neutral safety switch, do you have 12v at one of the pins when the key is at the start position? the wiring diagrams above, start signal is going to the ecu, But I cannot see output to the starter trigger. Is there a direct wire from the ignition switch or does the ecu control the start relay? At the start relay, do you have constant 12v at one pin and a signal 12v when key at start?
  3. The old plug is platinum tipped That’s why it has the taper.
  4. You know I’ll be there. Old mate @Seedy Al (remember him?) were talking Wagnats dates on the weekend. What about Thursday to Tuesday to avoid Monday after long weekend traffic?

  6. WOF needs to be on the drivers side. It does not have to be at the top. Affixing the WoF label The WoF label must be affixed by the vehicle inspector or a delegated employee of the inspecting organisation in one of the following positions: a) if the vehicle is fitted with a windscreen: i. to the inside of the windscreen facing outwards on the same side as the steering wheel, and ii. as close as possible to the edge of the windscreen where it is clearly visible from the outside and is not obscured by an anti-glare band or sticker https://vehicleinspection.nzta.govt.nz/virms/in-service-wof-and-cof/introduction/inspection-and-certification-process/issuing-the-wof-or-cof-label-evidence-of-vehicle-inspection
  7. Did some more digging. Managed to make it a bit better with hammer and dolly. Weld up the holes. Power file
  8. 91 should be fine, unless the timing has been advanced a bit. Keep an ear out for any pinging. In saying that, I use BP98 in my ‘70 Buick. Make sure you don’t use any fuel with ethanol in it, as is will eat at old rubber fuel lines. The wouldn’t worry about any additives. Unless you are doing 10s of thousands of miles a year, valve seat recession won’t be a problem. Post some pics of the Impala.
  9. Made some progress on the outside of the big corner job above Welds got a bit hot and bowed out a bit, so I dug some more bog out. Bit of a mess under there.
