  1. Oh yes it's definitely worth going. Actually I noted last time I passed through that there is a classic boat museum in St Arnund that I need to check out sometime. I've penciled our March meet in for the classic boats.
  2. I'm definitely keen on the classic boats, missed out last year but been to quite a few now. So Pohara bowls club for April meet? Right so our next meet will be at the Nelson vintage swap meet at the speedway. Saturday 18th February I will be there from around 9am to scrounge around the place/ laugh at grown men hustling to get the bargains. BBQ will be fired up around 12 so bring along something to throw on. I'll ring the organizers about cars for sale, hopefully they don't charge for that (and it's a good way to smuggle in the BBQ) Does anyone have a marquee I could borrow? Or even a large umbrella as it can get bloody hot out there.
  3. It was no problem at all! Thanks for the beers. Great to hear that it gave you trouble free motoring For anyone reading it came down to excessively worn points. So new points, cap and rotor was just the ticket... after going through the whole debacle with super cheap on is it a mazda or is it a Ford. Mazda caps are screw on, Ford caps are clip on. Daves Mazda B2200 had a clip on cap of course. Good times!
  4. I don't have anything to sell this time round but I don't mind sorting out a site if there's a few of you wanting to sell some shit? Otherwise I'll just bring in my bbq and we meet at a certain time under the shade of the shelter belt
  5. Do you happen to have the sump profile for a Bmw M50 engine?
  6. Yes I was thinking late Jan, but we may as well come up with a plan. I see the swap meet at the speedway is early February. We could do another meet there? Also as Alex suggested, the Pohara bowls club was a fun activity to do... but I do want to save the hill drive for when I have a license (end of Jan). Otherwise throw us your suggestions/thoughts/fetishes
  7. Ok I'll pm you my address. I'm not far from both repco and supercheap so just come here and we will take a look.
  8. Keep us updated as I could meet you halfway somewhere and bring tools/multimeter/compression tester etc but would need to organize a time.
  9. I'm in Nelson (1.5 hours drive) and could possibly head over to help. Is it a petrol engine? My very first thought was a blocked fuel filter... but I don't think there is a repco or anything in Picton but I may be wrong
  10. Hmm well I have been thinking about a trip to Geraldine over the xmas break... maybe I should set a date so I can participate in Triumphant destruction
  11. The pog and I followed that truck and a burgundy one over the wangamoas, fuck we were both fizzing over them. Also I will note they were both very courteous and let us pass as soon as they could.
  12. Another great meat with another crazy mix of makes and models. Thanks again to everyone who came along to make it happen!
  13. Is that why my parents 55 bedford bus has 2 forward facing blue lights fitted. Must be a factory option Haha (FYI they mask them up to get a cof)
  14. Shit no! I'm a lazy cunt. Plus I have to move so I'm trying to find a dry spot for her somewhere.
  15. Lolz my warrent guy once said I needed a high stop light for the LTD. First I told him it was registered here in 71, And also there's the fact that the brake lights go across the whole fucking ass end, I can clearly see all the faces in the car behind me if I brake at night.
  16. I'm intrigued at how it goes now, I did feel like it should have more power... but the induction does sound cool. I'm also not a fan of the clutch, coupled with work boots it makes for some interesting take offs/stalls. I'm not sure if this is just how honda be or something needs to be modified? Very grateful for the use of it and I did notice a few mothers having a look at it as I drove around the soccer field. A++ would soccer mum again
  17. Great build. If you want to play around with a serious injector, I have a injector from a Wartśila Vasa 32. (320mm piston bore). It's only got a 350 bar cracking pressure! But I did learn alot about these injectors on the test beds at sea, how the cracking pressure affects the spray pattern and shit.
  18. Right, Sorry people for being slack on all this. So we will aim to get to Rabbit island around lunchtime 12pm. Motueka people meet at the clock tower/repco with the cruise over leaving around 11.30am Nelson people meet at wow with the cruise leaving around 11.45 We will try get one of those public BBQs there but I'll bring old betsy as backup. See you all there!
  19. Ok. Let's do rabbit island and cable bay some other time. Sunday the 11th? Or the weekend after?
  20. Let's sort it. Ideas? I'm keen on a simple bbq out rabbit island or something similar.
  21. Another problem is running the amp power wire directly beside the rca leads. Usually the whine is only for amp driven speakers though.
