  8. Thought I’d stepped into the Barry thread...... my 2C, honda cx500 has basically what your doing, and they go for ever so meh Those three bolts can be loosened and some wiggle room to take up the slack of 40yrs of motoring However there is a little plug on the side of the case to chuck a mirror into to check this and the cam chain, possibly worth adding to yours?

  11. Got the motor back to kapiti aaand now I’ve taken a job promotion so moving up to hawera (just down the road from where I got the car and motor...) plan was to drop it of at the local Citroen foamer to get all the bits together and return it running, then potential covid crap means I’ll just take it up to the sisters place for now as of this evening Hopefully take it to the fulla next week and cheque book build it Needs a few blocks to load
  12. Fuck time flys when your lazy anyways, found a few guns stashed under the carpet was rather wtf turned out the uncle had threatened someone and was worried they’d take his guns so must have stashed them couldnt find the rest of the bits for the motor so was rather bummed about that, then the guy looking after the estate said there were a few motors lying about turned out they’re werenfor light 15s then the ooh there’s maybe another one, sure enough it was a complete motor/box(unfortunately a 4speed) front end!

  14. @cletus would this be one of the dodgy ‘murica conversions? (Ie not a seperate chassis?) econovan Camper in nz but uncomplied “Although this is a running vehicle, it is not road legal. I lived in it for a year, at a camp ground. It has all facilities, kitchen, toilet, shower, 3way fridge, tv etc. New awning, gas stove top and oven and a new heavy duty battery. It is a 8 1/2 mtr 1989 Ford Econovan American import, lefthand drive. It has not been registered in NZ, it has only been used as a park up. All questions will be answered honestly.”
