    Yeah and it matches the old plate that's on car jam.
  3. re-registering a vehicle

    Hi. Has anyone experienced a revin process when a motorbike is a different color to its original plates color? Anything to worry about?
  4. Mk2Marty's GN250 of lameness and brap

    You'll get some stick for having a GN.. But I think they are a great bike to start with. Very simple and not enough power to get yourself into too much trouble... Japanese made too!
  5. That was an awesome meet. Walked away feeling rich with love and materialistic warmth
  7. Project "Remove Motor from Beavers car" day coming up soon then?
  8. I can walk if the traffic is that gridlocked from owhiro bay to Princess bay lol
  9. Holy shit. Was it the entire office that got drench or just parts of it? Do you work for Transpower or the company cleaning it up? lol.
  10. Sorry mate didn't see your post in my excitement. That roads been closed for ages now then!
  11. Waiohine gorge is fucking lush. Awesome drive to it too. Just go on DOC to see if its open though.

    Had the ignition timing checked out by a timing light, mind you this was ages ago. Unfortunely I am the wrong person to tell you if its pinging etc. Do you have any recommendations who to go to to get the fueling/timing checked etc? I do have a weber 32/36 which I am about to send to Weber specialist to get jetted/tuned and for the manifold to get a water jacket etc but I doubt i'll get to fit it before xmas as its bigger and probably needs modification to the engine bay lol.

    LOL. Are you on about the picture at the top of this thread.. Cos yeah that isn't my van at all!

    Yeah. It goes up from thermostat to the radiator. It probably used to be the other way round, (so there are probably pictures of both!) but since manu put the shroud on, he lifted the rad about 3" at a guess.

    I got told it always ran hot which it did but it never actually overheated to the pump it steamed... but then it got worst after I/we replaced the timing gear so I obviously have fucked something. Since then I have Had radiator rodded. Changed Thermostat Changed Water Pump Manu added shroud/fan (which it always needed as I didn't get much airflow going up hills) New pipes. Needless to say I'm at my wits end and if I don't sort it out before xmas I've just wasted alot of money as I won't get to go away in it.

    Tested in some boiling water and it opened. Can see water moving when it gets to temp when rad cap is off. I have gutted a thermostat which I will put in and take for a drive and see if makes a difference.

    Will try the pop bottle test! Also reading about making the radiator a triple pass design may be a good way to go... Will need to get one of those guns and actually measure how much it's reducing the temp right now.

    Thanks for the articles. Will have a read through. Main hoses are all good and brand new. Bottom hose doesn't need a spring as its pretty much metal corners that manu fabricated to get the hose to fit in. haha. In a nutshell it seems that the radiator is doing it's job up to a certain point and then it just can't cope anymore. BTW I have been flushing the system so currently has rad flush and water in the system (no coolant). Would the higher boiling point of the coolant help in this regard? (I think that heat is heat and even if it was coolant it would still be running too hot?)

    I should point out that the temp gauge was at 230(F)ish at this point too, should I would expect to see steam.. but also expected engine to be hotter. Cap was pressure tested quite recently also. Think I'm just gonna take it to the rad shop in town and let them work it out.
  20. Mofs Toyota Hiace/Holden

    nah. Still overheats on load. Engine head felt quite cool but steam started venting out Does anyone wanna buy a van that only drives 5km?

    Well done Nominal. (Thanks) The water pump indeed was blocked off. Drilled it and now I have a fully working cooling system I think . Just need to go for a drive to be sure.
