  1. @felixx Just had a look, yeah it's in the shed, buried behind bikes. The leveller isn't though, think that's with the rally car, out of town. Happy for him to borrow it if he sorts transport. I'm in Otatara if you want to let him know, PM for contact deets...
  2. Yep got one. It's either in the shed or been lent out. Will have a look tomorrow...
  3. Nah it was gone next time I looked...
  4. @Robred Ooh details. Mine is on hold while other priorities take over. Mate just sold one incidentally...
  5. Actually know the bloke. Should chuck a ridiculous lowball at him...
  6. This came up today local. With loader on front and rotary hoe on the back, that can be swapped with counterweight that is part of package. Tempted...
  7. Those 2 earned clips? Blackwoods have them. And I bought some cheap end cutters from Supercheap on special for crimping them. Works well...
  8. I think technically it's a fail? May have changed. Got belt mount anchorages in the Fairmont so fitted rear belts and used to have to hide them for a WOF till I got a good mechanic who understood the silliness...
  9. I attended P76 club nats a few yrs ago. Quite a high Barry quotient, but lots of knowledge... I'll see if I can dig out pics.
  10. It's bloody satisfying posting progress update pics tho. I imagine...
  11. That one of the left looks remarkably like one of my better welds... Damn magnets.
  12. Fitzee has an amazing Newfie accent. Couldn't pick it initially as sounded like he was swapping between Canadian/Irish. He's got some interesting vids...
  13. If it has high/low ratio it's a TC100. TS was the road version...
  14. Please enter in a scale model show and bore/entertain us with pics...
  15. Think it's compulsory to sound like an arsehole on a harley. I also rev it when stuck at lights to make sure oil is getting thrown around. High volume low pressure system doesn't do much when idling...
  16. If it's like mine there are neutrals all over the place except when you want it. I snick it into neutral while coasting to a stop, otherwise nearly impossible... Also put it in 2nd then down to first before taking off. Trying to get into first on it's own is just lots of gktgktgkt noises... I'm hoping a lot of that is the shocking factory crossover linkage they put on the '75 as it's really a RHS change. Rear sets and RH reverse pattern change should help, but not expecting miracles. What does help (both clutch feel and gear change) is the correct oil level in primary case...
  17. Only pics on my phone. It's cafe'd so a bit different...
  18. Pretty sure I've got FXR forks on my ironhead. They're not shiny and pretty tho...
  19. Nice. My brother bought a 6 cyl poverty pack mustang for $14k and his wife has dailied it for years. Put an Aussie 2v head on it but otherwise stock, drums all round etc. He talked about upgrading drivetrain but it's far more interesting like it is. Draws a crowd whenever he parks. If you avoid the boomer stereotype with the jackets/hats etc they're a good honest old car that still looks sweet...
  20. The local vintage car club would prob be able to tell you. Although they'll pester you to donate it for someone's restoration. Think the central otago branch is based in Cromwell...?
  21. I've got one, never really had enough air to drive it properly. It does work in short bursts, though really it's just taking up space. Should chuck it on tardme next free listing day.
