  1. Chairs fellas, I haven't checked this in a while! have since left the Wairarapa!
  2. Long time no update. Car ran super well over summer, minus a little incident where I struck some slippery stuff (oil?) on the way up the bombay hill heading to Auckland for a classic meet. Long story short, front of the car hit the barrier, was lucky it missed the wheel and didn't swing the back end into it! 100km on full lock doesn't feel too good. About a week later we were heading to Leadfoot fest so had to quickly turn a repair around and get it presentable again... Slide hammer and a few dollys helped with that.
  3. Ryan im Cole, Darrell is my father who was with us. Did you meet him?
  4. Yeah man please do! Seen your wagon around a fair bit, very clean! You passed us in a grey Countrylane Kitchens trailer and blue ranger on the route to Hahei. Towed the datto there and sleeping in the trailer will be parked in the classic area tomorrow about 8am
  5. Im here now and parked my 120y in the classic area. Staying at Hahei camp ground
  6. Cut off the h150 brackets to mount onto the h165. Will need to make sure I weld these on perfect! aiming for a non cert swap as the diffs are practically identical Yarns heeeeerre
  7. Been a while since an update, A14 has been running well. Finally got the jetting better, smoother to drive and more fuel efficient! Up'd the main jets and changed the emulsion tubes to improve the change between idle and main jet. Its still a little bit lean, but have spent far too much lately on trial and error with finding the jets. In November, my diff became seriously whiney. Ended up buying a 2nd hand head to put in, this seems to be working okay for now. Sourced a Datsun H165 ute diff 4.11 ratio, this needs some mods to fit but will be far stronger than the h150 thats in the car at the mo. Will be working on this throughout the year when I visit home during breaks from uni Took the car to Caffeine and Classics at Hampton Downs after xmas, also came to the Oldschool Drags at Meremere!
  8. New pads and slave cylinders installed today
  9. Just me, got the old man to grind the welds back. Then I went at them again making them presentable and re welding where needed Cheers guys. Hours upon hours and around 1m^2 of sheet metal :D
