    if need be you can get a ford rear brake hardware kit which includes the cable you need. http://www.northwesternford.co.nz/brake-hardware-c-113_205_384.html this guy is good to deal with also i have always phoned and ordered the parts
  2. would be good to see this out and about again not that i have actually seen it in its flesh but ya know with your ignition side of things in the past i have found many of the old distributors have timing skatter (not consistence) or may not have the right advance curve to see the full engines power. plus are not normally a really good strong spark. in the past have fitted ICE igintion systems which is an Australian company to a 265 valiant with much success would recommend on a performance 265 not cheap too but good
  3. Nice job on the power steering rebuild and all the other work of course good quality as always have also done a few power steering rebuilds myself but definitely not to the precision as you have normally i just wet and dry sandpaper the plates and rotor if it needs it then reassemble it with some rubber grease to help with the first time it runs. mine were never noisey though just leaked. but will use your precision next time i do one though hope your back is healing up good
  4. same here would attend also don't currently have an OS car legal or running
  5. yes! that was a great idea and i would've gone if i hadn't already watched it would recommend the movie to everyone 10/10
  6. Ever watched a awesome movie at home by yourself and then have no one who is at all interested to tell them about it. well here is the potential game changer mate And this came to mind after watching some great car films within the last 6 months and thought it would be great if it became an 0S event. to bring some like minded people together so my idea is that get a whole bunch of Auckland OS members together for a oldschool car themed movie evening and the idea would be sometime in the weekend evenings unfortunately can not host the event but im sure someone else could but can provide shit sharns seen as OS in auckland has no other meeting events on let me know on your ideas and thoughts Cheers MATE
  7. just do them until there is a nice clean lap mark all the way round. but you may not get the whole face of the valve seat which is fine. another thing to do is put bearing blue on the valve face and let the valve drop on the seat and see how much is contacting. also valves and seats may need refacing on a machine depending on the wear. also check the valve guides aren't too worn too And make sure the head/valves gets a good clean after lapping them in too hope this helps
  8. I haven't given up. abit sick of seeing it sitting in the garage though. but a car cover helps hide that haha been currently working on the engine but at 1 day half days progress is slow
  9. also personally would get it blasted then etch prime black then a good black over the top. would recommend a protec or ppg product myself
  10. yes on autoblast being expensive. got my car done somewhere else at half of there quote
  11. After running the engine with the new spark plugs and there is no miss. Then removing the plugs when the miss appears what condition are all the plugs in? particularly no 4 This also might help identify what the plugs are doing.
  12. can you guys help take down the neon signs after a big feed thanks boys

    Figured this thread suited this best. Got given these ramps and axle stands by the neighbor. They were all covered in surface rust and figured I should blast and paint them being the weirdo I am Gave them a spray can primer. Then had to decide on a colour I didn't want a normal blue red or black. so caterpillar yellow/mustard they went. also gives me an excuse to get some spray gun experience And unfortunately can't post any photos of the axle stands due to file size

  15. so last year in 4 weeks i stripped the front and resprayed the engine bay. gave the engine some new parts and a spray can rebuild. chucked it back together as i wanted to take it to an event. got it mostly done the night before the event worked till 2am that night. did some more in the morning as had carb issues. then took it to the event and hoped for no breakdowns. i had pushed myself to finish it in time as a woman wanted to go to the event together and was keen to go in my car. plus would've been extra brownie points right? but it turned to shit before the event. but ended up taking a male mate instead. was good but still overheated... been super slack and haven't been updating this thread will try and update it in the next few weeks yeeah
