  1. Only pic I took. Some dicks, making a dick, from an audi Would trade again.
  2. Thanks guys, I'll get hold of ya when I hear back from the guy.
  3. Im looking at a lexus gs350 somewhere near Berhampore? In wgtn. Just got to wait for the seller to get it back from storage. I'm ready to pull the trigger, but just want someone local to check it's not a dog/hidden damage. I'd anybody able to have a quick look for me? I'll post you some beers or something else to enjoy during the coming lockdown
  4. I'll probably cum on friday. Will bring some wood
  5. Took the kids to the caroline bay festival today. A solid 4 boring hours of flat out straight road. Well on the way there it was flat out, the way back was full of bloody caravans Done about 1100 or 1200 miles so far. Hasn't missed a beat. Just rolled over 105,000. Still got the sticker on the windscreen saying next service due @105 or june 2010. So hasn't done a lot of work the last 10 yrs Edit, soz upside down pic. Dunno why. Easier to turn ya phone around.
  6. Action shots! Well some photos at least. I'm shit behind a camera, and forget to take them. Currently in chch on a family holiday of the sth island. Been to Nelson for a bit, over to Takaka, down to Westport then Hokitika and across to chch. Went up to the Denniston Mine. Was quiet so snuck through the barrier for some photos. Did some other stuff too. Discovered the rubber boot thing on the wiper on my side leaks and drips on my foot
  7. @anglia4 I'll be back mid Jan, got a mudbug lined up. Keen to do some exploring.
  8. yea maybe a bit cheap, but its no 240z.. Unfortunately i need the space and the time. Not that this takes a lot of my time. Going to the south island for a month in december, but the wif does not love getting stuck to the vinyl seats. Have been measuring up to fit A/C. Got a vintage air unit i was going to fit to another project so might mash that in
  9. The front spring change made it handle better but made the soft rear springs stand out a lot more. @Bistro had some leaves lying around that looked like they might fit so i engaged the safety squint and split some springs from the parts car Spot the difference No real change in height when relaxed, but around 10mm higher in the car which is what i wanted. The bolt through the leaves was too short, but fyi a chinese honda gx390 headbolt is perfect, even same thread. Had to engage the safety prop under the diff to change the springs out too.
  10. If your only doing hay, then yes, it will take a lot. But who on here is only going to use them for what they were intended for?
  11. Dusted this off last week to use it next month for a family trip. Wof man did not approve of my 'custom' shocks. I found some old ones from some holden that were a bit short but did the trick. no pics, but you can see the bump stop has been working a fair bit. I was looking at getting some of those air shocks that you can pump up to take some weight, but might trim the bumps a bit first, and look at some new springs I also changed the front springs to HQ super lows. They are 17.5mm vs 16mm wire diameter so a bit harder. the stock trimmed ones felt a bit soft. Don
  12. Have you got a regular set of pullers? I have a China set and bought 2 lengths of 3/8 threaded rod to extend the clamshell bit to allow me to do the same as you have pictured. You might be able to buy some locally. I think I paid $10 for 2m of it
  13. If you peel the top gasket off there will probably be a hole/groove into the base if the carb
  14. I would try and borrow a sensor to try first, Then 2nd, try new wires from the ecu to the sensor. It could be a bad connection somewhere leaking a bit of voltage into the map signal wire.
  15. Lol, I have a fwd maxima with the early faulty guides. The plastic bit behind the red square slides down and the tensioner hasn't got enough extension to tighten the chain. I have found that if you leave the car off for a week or 2, the piston will retract enough to start the car pinned for a full Italian tune up. The chain goes so fast it pushes the plastic bit up the guide before the tensioner piston can be pushed out and shes fixed for 6 months!
  16. had a mate with a z powered 1200. z18et head, z22 block, z20 crank or something close to that. ran an early link. went very well. plus its nissan lego so mechanically you can do anything. ka24de+t
  17. Can you take a photo of the wiring inside the terminal box of the motor? It says 400v star, (Y) so it should be able to do 230v delta with a Chinese vsd or 2nd hand trademe one. If you can get one cheap it will be the easiest way
  18. @Ja1lb8 made a jig to hold rims for a large wheel importer friend of ours. It was cheaper to buy them blank and drill them to suit, than stock every offset and hole pattern. It was pretty rugged. (the drilling, not the fixture) and they would just go at it and it seemed to be all good. /depends if you have enough meat
  19. can somebody recommend me a fuel pump for my datsuns? one of them has an inline electric pump, the inline vibrator type ones, that has been running sweet for a long time. I bought another cheap one and it lasted a disappointingly long 45 seconds. @Carsnz123 was lol at my misfortune. the trademe seller refunded me the money straight away and said dont bother sending it back, obviously no great loss... I dont want a mechanical one as they are often parked up for ages, and the carb dries up so i have to crank for an eternity to get fuel back to the carb. also dont
  20. Vacuum brake booster leak? Cant remember if you were running a booster. Try disconnect that?
  21. Yea that loop that went through the TB bled the rear ridge to the front right? Can you just whack a bit of hose in to let any steam/bubbles through to the front?
  22. Was that TB water feed also a bit of a bypass/air bubble bleed that you have removed? Could you try reinstall it bypassing the tb?
