  1. http://shop.ukrtrans.biz/wp-content/uploads/catalogs/A40.pdf took a bit of finding but this is a manual i came across a while ago. The bloody MS112's trans is playing up so may have to delve into it at some stage.
  2. Additional Barry fact: the center throttle layout was mainly due to a lack of space between the brake pedal and side of the body. Many left hook variants of the American cars we saw here in the 10s and 20s were conventional layout (clutch-brake-throttle). Also be careful if you have to hone or bore the engine. I think these the deck surface is off square to the bores by 7 degrees. I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure its the 7 they did some sillyness on.
  3. The basic formula is: L20ET manifold TD03 turbo 10 psi wind fuel up The L20ET manifold requires slotting of holes and a bit of port matching. The L28ET manifold doesn't without hogging a shit load of metal out of the head. No.6 does get hot with a turbo so an intercooler and clearing out your coolant passages would be a good idea. 10 psi is a safe level of boost and will give you more kick, decent fuel economy, and only reduce your engine life a bit. The fuel screw on your pump will need adjusting for more fuel but it will smoke like a train off boost. I have heard of people running 20psi but not sure how long engine lasted. We've had a shit load of fun with @- i5oogt -'s LD28T Cedric but due to a crap cooling system its been overheated 1 too many times and the engine is a bit sick. So keep it at a normal operating temp and EGT below 650c and you should be sweet. But just remember you will shorten your engine life.
  4. What side of CHCH are you on? I could come have a look after work one evening if you want.
  5. Has "Invite only" show to keep it classy Invites Ford Model As? Bloody barrys
  6. Actually got it running on it's carb tonight. 3.5 cylinders but close enough.
  7. Finally got a spare moment to get pics on the interwebs Whats disappeared is the front structure on the right side for the suspension mounts and engine And holes where they shouldn't be. There is lots of rusty parts on the lower section but most of the stuff above the sills is pretty sound.
  8. That KE36 rear wasn't very watertight off the top of my head. And being so low and having no suspension it was a bit of a shit to tow according @76rolla_gurl. Looked cool. Not sure where it is as both car and trailer have been sold.
  9. @Avenga would you have a set of brake drums surplus to requirement? A friend needs some to upgrade the brakes on his model T Ford.
  10. Lol. Saw that ad. I wonder how much grief thats causing VTNZ staff.
  11. Carjam doesn't like chassis numbers that arnt the 17 digit one on the rivited tag. Best go to the place doing the compliance and talk to them first. Get a written list of what paper work you need.
  12. Why do you need proof? The compliance officer will have that information available to them.
