  3. could be very wrong, but...…. when I was doing dual air gauges for jap truck compliance, there was an outfit in CHCH that was supplying Jap metric to BSP/NPT for the conversion, Transpecs ???????? am away in boonies ATM, but try your local brakes company.. i'd be surprises if BNT don't have access to them.

    i'm calling your bluff , Mr Ritchie. you want to savour the flavour of the DoBro snags at Riversdale butchery. BTW, when do you head back to the pig island ?

    shock insert rebuild

    i wanted a price for 350mm long, 180lb/in coilover springs and Bilstein inserts. Chris was adamant i needed to send the entire unit up for him to measure and fit, then charge a 're-valvling fee for an off the shelf part. have also heard some of his rebuild parts are not the real deal, but merely a knock-off

    shock insert rebuild

    good in theory, but use heavy grease on drill bit to avoid ingress of swarf, weld a threaded insert on there so you can change the oil grade if to soft/ stiff
  13. good work on the bonnet, mine was in better nick, but was told it would be $1500 to get real good again!!, maybe i didn't need the spendy one from Aussie ?? radiator looks like CR39 Liteace van (can measure one here for you) , but the EA82 Subaru Leone had a similar one from memory
  14. @cletus , what's your take on the legality of a non-welded twin master set-up like this : as i am going with Wilwood 4-pots on front of Levin, i am thinking a bias system will be easier to tune than mucking around with M/Cylinder sizings . Fanx
