  1. I did locate it today. Its a mare to get out of rhe v2000 I also took the debonairs one out. Turns out one of the plugs is different. Fml I guess I'll have to try something else
  2. I imagine you will be able to buy almost every part you need to repair for this? That will make the job 11ty billion times quicker and easier. Especially with large and involved repairs Talking from experience in the matter
  3. Ok. Ill have a better look today. I suspect it is a computer fault just because when i manually select 1st it drives fine
  4. I have a debonair here i can swap it out of 6g72 and auto I had the centre consol out yesterday and i didnt find a tcu. Only a power steer controller and the ac/heater computer behind that
  5. Yes they are a computer controlled trans This is something i looked into but couldnt find the trans computer .... requires further investigation
  6. Get back on the main page. Got a set or soft lines for the rear brakes made up today and some seals for the calipers got them back on an bled up njce and easy Got a new brass frost plug in the block. Was a prick to get in Got it all dialed in and took it outside to wash the dust off it. Took it for a run up the motorway to test out all the work ive done to it Which turned into this haha Transmission is working ok in 2nd 3rd and overdrive. But pulling away in 1st gear in drive it slips pretty hard. But if i select low it is ok.....dun
  7. Sorted the shifter bush this arvo. Didnt have any sutible plastic to make a bush out if so modifyed 2 bronze bushes O.d was to big so turned it down to fit. Made one a little small so used a bit of locktite to secure it Then reamed out the i.d till the bottom bolt would go through with only a little clearance Sorted
  8. I had to try pretty hard not to just put a 6g72 in it when i got into the motor and saw how yuck the heads were. But being how rare a v2000 is i figured it would be kinda cool to keep it original motor.
  9. Should add i think the calipers have been relitted at some point in the past as the pistons and seals are in good condition. Compared to the fronts that are in very poor condition. Will be getting seals for the rear calipers anyways
  10. The rear brakes are vented on the v2000 The galant ones are not Some v3000 have the same brakes so hopefully parts arnt to bad
  11. Something that annoyed me with jt was the auto shifter is sloppy amd feels loose. Spent way longer than i though removing the center console. Every piece of trim is screwed in with more screws than seems necessary. But got there in the end. Removed the shifter to find the bottom bush non existent. Will have to spin one up from acetal at work one evening
  12. A while ago i bought a low kms one owner galant with a rekt motor. Was gonna scrap it but them i noticed the front brakes were pretty similar. Exacly similar i turns out So i set to work this weekend amd swapped master cyclinder, front rotors, calipers, and flexi lines over for yhe frony brakes. Geting rid of the corroded siezed old calipers and dry cracked soft lines. Now in have a functioning front brake system with what look like near new disks rears i was not so lucky with and everything is slighlty differnt. Will rekit the rear calipers and get new soft lines m
  13. Most/all radiator shops will also clean fuel tanks
  14. There is a manifold on. 4g63 in a l300 at my house that belongs to @DoBro Jesus In chch though
  15. In saying that @- i5oogt - 330 cedric had flat to inverted leaves and if handles surprisingly well for a big car.
  16. Got the cooling system all buttoned up. And filled it up and ran the motor up to temp. Aaaaaaaannnnnnnd one of the frost plugs is leaking Should be an easy one to get to once the front exhaust manifold manifols is off
  17. Spent some time this arvo and went though appcos stock of hoses to find some the match. Got a couple that will work ok. Bittom hose is a awkward shape bit found one almost the same
  18. @ajg193 saw this parked at the shops barbados/warrington st this arvo
  19. Yeah missing a fuel leak is droping the ball pretty bad. Depends how they test break's i guess. If its just by driving down the road and relies on the mechanics experience/option. And can vary. But yes i agreee that a bad brake imbalance is also dropping the ball pretty hard. I understand leaniancy around minor rust or lights or whatnot. But major saftey issues need to be adressed
  20. Did a bit more work on this today. Repaied a rusted coolant line in the throttle body.
  21. I do remeber @Pee Dubs rear wheel being a bit wobbly.....
