  1. It is exactly this that dampens my enthusiasm also. Much as I would love to meet up with you all my budget does not permit it.
  2. A while ago now I broke the pedal box in my manual EA coon. My wof guy welded it up to get me mobile but he reckons it will break again. He also reckons automatic pedal boxes are the same and that they just have a longer rod to hold the extra pedal. Today I started removing the column from the automatic parts car I have here in order to be able to remove the pedal box. Everything came undone easily except for the column change linkages. I can't see how to disconnect the linkage anywhere between the column and the trans without cutting or breaking something. There must be a way to do this. What am I not seeing here? Thanks in advance for any and all helpful advice.
  3. How far South are you coming? I've been following this for a while and I'd love to see it.
  4. You didn't go over Finlayson Road from Waihola and up the coast road to get to Dane's place did you? That road's questionable even with a small trailer.
  5. Is that cos modern lead free shit?
  6. Sweet tractor. Does it start on petrol then you switch over to kero after it warms up? When was the last time you saw a kero pump on a servo forecourt?
  7. Work Hilux had an error like that cos some genius had put 15" wheels on it. At an indicated 150 on the speedo the terratrip said 133. Never fixed it, everyone knew it was dodgy and drove accordingly.
  8. If they were a factory option it might have factory mounting holes? According to the brochure my Wolseley should but I haven't found them yet.
  9. True. Better to just whack five motorcycle carbs on the thing right?
  10. Five cylinder triple carb should be sweet if the one in the middle that fed one cylinder was half the size/flow of the other two shouldn't it? Would look weird as hell.

    Battery chargers

    My coon had a new battery in it when I bought it in 2013 and it's still sweet. The battery in my Civic must be at least that old too cos I bought it for my previous coon. Think I've had to charge that one once cos lots of short running / sitting unused for months. Mary's Laser on the other hand has had at least two replacement batteries since we got it in 2012 but it has a tiny battery cradle that a decent sized battery won't fit in so it's half fucked before it even begins.
  12. ...or even older than the mean age of the drivers. Can't see me making it to this event thanks @Truenotch but definitely keen to catch up with fellow OSers if I happen to be in Akl at any time.
  13. What do you need @rich1179? Logistics could be an issue but there is always a way.
  14. Better install that lift kit mate. You booked in for Hanmeet yet?
  15. Should get engine braking in L? Mine seems to. edit, oops sorry, should be in discussion thread.
  16. Are EN Civic manual parts any use to you for this? I've got a gearbox, clutch and maybe flywheel in the shed and potentially other usable manual specific parts still on a wreck in the bus paddock.
