  1. How anal does one need to get as far as tyres go on a street car? like as long as they don't slip in the wet like Super Meows or are noisy and mushy like Hiflys, you're golden.
  2. The temptation to make an adapter to fit one of the DHLAs I’ve got is rather high. Would look funny as fuck too.
  3. Having trouble with Toyota M series carb shit. The engine is a M-J with the emission spec carb on it. It keeps leaning out in the transition between where the intermediate circuit stops being effective and the main circuit kicks in. It’s almost like the main is being a little slow at coming on. Upped the float height with little to no effect. Accelerator pump plunger is new. Even cracking it open slowly it gets to a certain point, Boggs down, then the main jet fires fuel in and away we go. There is a vac operated accelerator pump on the carb too for a little more enrichment when the engine is
  4. Slight laugh is Repco brand dot 5.1 is cheeper than the dot 4.
  5. Have had quite a bit of work done by him. Never had one of his cams fail. Good engine assembly lube and good oil when breaking it in and you’ll be fine.
  6. Not sure if this is better here or in general but anyway. Carsnz123 has been a fool and bought a V8 E34 Bimmer. Among the European issues it has the wiper arm has attacked the screen a little. Has anyone tried polishing glass themselves and got any advice? or is there some OSGC in Christchurch with the gear who would do us a cracker deal? These Ali kits look the tits https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000251756192.html?src=google&albch=shopping&acnt=494-037-6276&isdl=y&slnk=&plac=&mtctp=&albbt=Google_7_shopping&aff_platform=google&aff_short_
  7. Sounds like youve got the incorrect needles. Your spring selection should be based on having the piston at full height at redline under load. TBH having a O2 sensor like the kits that 14.7 sell makes life much easier when setting carbs up on a midified engine. Also ensure that your mechanical and vacuum advance are working correctly. cant count the number of times that has screwed up tuning a vehicle.
  8. A series don't make enough power to break things. puhuhuhu
  9. There was a thing earlier in the year that they were going to modify the brake rules. Have you got any info on this?
  10. Yes It's a shit of a thing to machine. Freezing makes it easier and having an air supply to cool your tool helps. High rake angle and razor sharp tool helps a lot too. The boys at SAS or Autoline (I've forgotten who) here in Christchurch have someone who can machine bushes and I'm fairly sure hes based up your way. Might pay to ring them.
  11. Wurth Liquid Metal is the tits for shit like that. Is a grey epoxy that sets rock solid and sticks like shit to a blanket as long as the metal is clean and its got somthing to key into.
  12. @Beaver also check the voltage to your coil under cranking. Had it in the past with a valiant that was really hard to start. Only had 4V at Thebes coil.
  13. Check resistance in primary and secondary windings. They fail due to insulation breaking down. low resistance or very high resistance is bad. If engine stalls or is hard to start pour water over carb and fuel pump to cool them down. If it fixes the problem then your fuel is getting too hot.
