    Tried another carb. No luck, given up and moving forward with motor swap. mate 4 doors down had a Crain so walked it up the rd with beers in hand this evening. 34 years and multiple beach missions the motor had pretty much welded it self to the gearbox. Couple screw drivers and a dog bar later she’s out. I’ll need to wait till next week to get rid of the block as the head and bolts ons have already filled the bin. plan.. bolt motor to box on garage floor to test clutch release before putting it in. finish engine loom and change body wiring to suit, then take it from there, hopefully get some better weather so I can deal to the frame and under body

    Mint! All timed and torqued up just need to scrap the goo off and goo the cover and sump back on. gona get a replacement water pump too as that doesn’t feel to flash. And ditch the oil feed sandwich plate for an oil cooler one. Then take the turbo feed off a T where the pressure sender is. Plan was to run a remote pressure sensor anyway

    Still busy with life hopefully find time to put this in. Type S oil pump upgrade for the k24. Apparently the k24’s oil pump cavitates at higher rpm and the k20 oil pump is better designed for high rpm. its a shame it’s cast alloy because I wanted to extend the sump to be deeper and lengthen the pickup to suit. can get one of these to help stop the oil traveling up the timing chain cover, and I’ll look into modifying the sump as I’m phoning to be pretty paranoid about the oiling system. oil systems probably gonna cost more then the motor with all the bolts ons haha Owell https://tractuff.com/products/tractuff-oil-pump-baffle

    When I bought one of my cars it had all miss matched keys from doors to ign. Just took them to a local lock place and they changed all the pins to suit one key. Could be a solution if that locks worn to just change the pins out for new ones. or just swap the drivers and passengers door locks around

    For Questions Regarding WOFs/CERTs/NUMBER PLATEs

    Cheers for the reply the repairs been done and I’m told it was signed off by a certifier. however car doesn’t come with any paperwork to back it up, nor can VTNZ or carjam can confirm anything about. Car has since been modified and will require cert for the mods so I’m asking as I don’t want it to be an issue should it go for cert thanks again ash

    Haha I just got a new naughbour too so I’ll try the factory one first haha might have a look at the governor too. But I feel cause it’s smoking so much as if it’s really rich it would be less likely to be that cause that would be the same as just chilling part throttle??

    Whipped the exhaust off yesterday, it’s the original for sure and all I can I see in it with a phone light is shiny sticky black tar. filled it with break cleaner, degreaser and an assortment of other random aerosols I had sitting around and shook the shit out of it for a good while. Tipped it out but not much came out so thinking the packing socked it up so let it sit for a while to air as I had thoughts of me bolting it back on and starting it only to go off as a hand grenade not much difference so I’ll give the heat a go. Found this on YouTube and looks like fun so I’ll dig out the heat gun and wait for the miss’ to go out so she doesn’t put a stop to my fun for fear of me burning the house down failing that there’s super cheap generic systems on trade me with an expansion chamber and straight through muffler for 30 inc postage so I’ll cut one of them up and fit it under fareing. gotta be miles better then some non straight through thing with multi chambers from +35 years ago
