  1. I had one for a couple of years in the early '90s. Original 214 petrol and four speed. Top speed on the flat 35 mph but didn't like to take it over 30. Fuel consumption averaging 10 mpg. Real stump puller diff gears. Almost never used first gear unless heavily laden. Perfect truck for town deliveries or hay making. Rolling roadblock on the highway.
  2. But then you have to get them all out again. A chain might make that easier.
  3. This would make sense, 1 being front and 2 being rear.
  4. Looking good. The wheels suit it. Like that you've retained the factory 'special' badges. It certainly is.
  5. Have I suggested before that the one with the sweetest voice must be named Melanie?
  6. Must also have a big kitchen. Always enjoy this thread @Raizer. Even though most of the technical detail goes over my head it's still an interesting read.
  7. Sierra petrol gauges work about as well as Falcon ones?
  8. Welcome to oldschool. Been following your progress on retrorides.
  9. Pretty sure the first white number plate saw was on a Sierra, NA751 I think it was.
  10. I ran light truck steel belted radials on an ADO16 for some years. Was impressed with the wearing qualities thereof. Disclaimer; may not be entirely relevant.
  11. Are stiffer valve springs a valid option?
  12. Pretty sure December 1951 is the cutoff for accurate speedo for a wof.
  13. +1 for Scotty. He made a new speedo cable for my Wolseley many years ago. Very good service and not crazily expensive either as I recall.

    The GC

    You drove that thing from Kamo to Maungatapere and didn't get caught? Did you sneak out the back way or what?
  15. I did give it a spray with CRC 5.56 in the first instance. Will give it a further soaking and warm it up a bit then see how I go.
  16. Does anyone have any good ideas for freeing up a stuck spark plug in an aluminium head please? Went to check the plugs on my Civic and three came out easily but the other one resisted the application of moderate force. Didn't wale on it really hard as not keen to risk breaking it or stripping threads. The three plugs I did get out were better than expected given the mileage and operating conditions of the engine (lots of short runs and almost never getting warmed up properly) but would like to replace them all anyway.
  17. Are those things any good? I've always dismissed them as too weird looking.
  18. How could they be anything else but Millie, Molly, and Mandy? 56mpg. How is this even possible?
  19. I thought similar things. Been looking at 80 and 100 cc scoots on the tard and tempted to push my luck.
  20. Question for those who've done these trips before. What're the odds of getting caught riding on the wrong class of licence when travelling in a large group? Kind of keen to have a go.
  21. Why would you do that if you had the choice to put it somewhere else which it seems Flash does?
