    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??

    I bought a scooter! And I need some help as I know nothing about them haha it runs and has rego so it’s just general maintenance I need to know about. What fluids to use, things I should look at, where to get parts etc etc the scooters a 1984 Suzuki roadie 50cc i bought it cause it was cheap, and me and the misso want something cheap to run for short distance nipping out and miss’ to get to work when the weathers good. also a good mate is opening his own shop doing painting and custom work so I’ll let him have free reign as a canvas, and the boys can take it with them to events as pit bike / advertising its a three speed auto, not sure how it works but if someone could tell me what fluid to use it that would be awesome. and anything to check with the breaks? Drum brake front and rear

    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

    Steelo's 1985 AE85 Levin

    Yeah correct. I haven’t looked into it properly but was my plan to reuse factory loom where I could if there isn’t a constant supply I was going to look at seeing if there was another core going to the fuse box (or close to) and refitting that end onto a fused constant.

    Hey Cletus just wondering, if a car has had a section of the floor replaced and this needs a repair cert. how would one find the repair cert paperwork? ive done a car jam report and it doesn’t say anything, nor is there any other paperwork to go with the car do these get logged on a system of any sort? thanks ash

    White will come straight from the battery so be careful where you tap in as it might not be fused If it’s like my 3A there should be some weird emissions box thing above the glove box, have a look at using the feeds and 0v to that. That way your using factory loom and fuse so will keep it tidy and the ecu fuse in the fuse box instead of a random inline one witch can be hard to trace. black with yellow strip should be starting circuit and go to your starter relay and solenoid?? There should be another black (with maybe a red stripe?) that will feed other accessories witch might be better for switch feed

    Yeah seems to be good so I’ll do the fluid and leave it. went for a blat yesterday and she’s pretty fucking guttless, hits 20km then falls flat as a pancake. Smokes like fuck too. the old Columbian Man i bought it off had the carb rebuilt and said it’s run far better since but with 8 other scooters he’s not had the time to look at it. im thinking it’s a mix of a blocked up exhaust and maybe running a bit rich so I’ll take truenotchs advice on cleaning that out and see if that helps. aside from that, it starts so easy a toddler could kick start it haha all the switches work but indicators stay on so Ill wire in a new flasher and chuck some Ali LED lamps in it to brighten it up.

    Sweet, yeah was thinking I might pull the drums off and give them a clean out a see what they look like. if I do need new shoes can I just call any old scooter place?

    Ash’s Suzuki CS50 roadie

    The electric ign isn’t working either so I’ve got to do some fault finding on that. kick start works but the misso will need that working. i read it runs a 20-30vac dyna with a 12vdc rectifier, small battery to feed starter and lights. I’m pretty confident with wiring but if there’s any common failures to look at first it would be much appreciated

    Awesome cheers! Yeah Some google search’s said something about wet clutches but It was pretty breif. But I get what you mean about free wheeling, much the same as a push bike when you stop pedaling is there a way to test if these are slipping? And if they are what would be the next corse of action? would the springs on the clutches get soft over time and engage to early or are they a pretty reliable system?

    I think offroad regardless of terrain is weight and ratios. you have all seen how slow my old thing is, dunes and not so mudy bush tracks it keeps up with anything. just needs a fucking good run up for sand hills cause it’s go no torque once momentum is lost, nothing more power can’t fix but it weighs 1400kg. Mates 07 rodeo with steps and bullbar is 2100, and safs get over 3t easily. thats a lot of weight pushing tires down into mud, or trying to lift the front wheel over a rock. a lot of those top crawlers are pretty much tube frame chassis, couldn’t imagine many would be over a ton

    The LVVTA Facebook page had a thing about coil spacers recently, can’t find the post now sorry. But I’m pretty sure it’s a no. unless they were softish factory rubbers

    Yeah that’s why I asked. saw a photo of someone else doing it and thought it was questionable. but at the same time proper bulk head fittings are expensive and still leave exposed terminals

    For Questions Regarding WOFs/CERTs/NUMBER PLATEs

    Regarding fuel system wiring changing carb tank to EFI with in tank pumps, using a large inspection plate for pump fixings would a compression glad for cable through the plate be ok? Can’t really find much aside from this blurb, 2.3(16) An electrical system within a low volume vehicle must be designed to have electrical equipment such as pump motors and solenoids isolated from the fuel tank and system. and any other suggestions or things to watch out for with doing these mods to a tank? cheers ash

    Ash’s 85 Toyota crumpy

    Issues with the exhaust too. HX30 rear housing flange doesn’t suit anything I can find off the shelf so I’ll need to get another flange-turbo that goes straight to 3”. that and the lengths of tube and bends OD is about a 1.5mm to big for the other V bands I’ve got for down pipe to mid, and mid - tail so I’ll haft to chuck them in the lath. mainly cause I like to overlap the tube from one side into the other side V band as well as using male-female V bands. i did it on a JZX110 system I did and it located well and sealed super tight. other things the intake. Going to do a quick cut and shut to get it running. Bit of an awkward spot but a 90’ into the cente on the plenum should work ok. Just need to do a measure up from the bellhousing to see where it will sit. then save up for a spool gun and glue stick the cunt together
