  1. I was really looking for first hand answers like this. One of the reasons mine stayed brand new was due to the fact of how bad they actually were. I'll put a high price on them and see how it all goes.
  2. I guess if people really want/need , in my opinion crap 15 year old "new" tyres, they will either pay the money or want to work out a deal.
  3. Yeah I have only ever seen "set of 4x, 3 have cords hanging out 1 may be warrantable asking $ stupid ammount" etc. Don't come across very many new ones
  4. I asked 1 of the people what they would pay and they said "oh ah around 500 each" which really started me wondering what they are actually worth. As you said though, ya can't get them anymore, so price just comes down to how much someone wants them I guess. I think I'll just go with the highest offer between them and be done with it, someone may as well get some use from them
  5. So not sure if this is the right place for this, but after a bit of advice. Years back I bought a few 215/50/13 Bridgestone eager brand new cause "eagers". Fast forward 10 or 15 years still have them unused never fitted to rims and no use for them, lots of people want to own them, but I've got no idea what they are worth. Anyone got any ideas? Cheers
  6. I have no idea what tyre shops/workshops that do alignments charge. I, and all the shops I do alignments for, charge $80incl for retail. Price hasn't gone up in the 13 years I've been doing it and never had anyone complain regarding price, so it must be about right.
  7. I do alignments all day every day, mainly trade but also retail, and that invoice is so shit, especially if one shop has done everything. Definitely question them about it. Evans answer seems the most logical, but what kind of workshop charges 42.50 to r&r a wheel
  8. I've had 2 regs, both from boc, leak from inside the bottle pressure gauge. Swapped first under warranty 2nd time I just blanked the gauge off and haven't got around to replacing it yet
  9. I did look at doing this but none of other leads were long enough to reach back to no.4. I guess if it still ran on 3 with no.4 lead on no.3 plug and nothing on 4 then I could rule out the lead. I may have a bit more of a look at it in the morning. Still really confused how dizzy was so far out though
  10. Update: it's running again, albeit on 3 but I think no.4 lead is crook. I noticed that rotor was pointing between 1 and 3 when at tdc, don't know how I didn't see it before, pulled dizzy out and turned round a bit so rotor lined up a bit nicer towards 1. Put dizzy back but it had a flat on bottom of shaft that didn't line up so pulled it out and turned the groove down in the hole with a screw driver, put dizzy in turned key and it went thankfully. I'm not sure what happened for it to be out but. . . It's good for now. Just thought I'd put a update on this Cheers for ya help
  11. Thanks for the quick answer! I thought it may be related to timing being out as that's what I'd been touching last. So I tried cranking while rotating dizzy back and forth and no real change so set it bak to old witness mark. The leads all look to be in reasonable condition, eg not cracked or anything. I have measured the resistance of them if that helps Coil to dist 2.29k 4 to dist 2.46k 3 to dist 1.85k 2 to dist 1.70k and 1 to dist 1.22k while I don't really know what any of that means nothing seemed to be way higher than another
  12. Hey guys im not very good with computers so hopefully this is right. Ihave a 1989 Toyota hilux with a 2y in it. It was running on 3 cylinders at the beginning of lockdown and I had put it down to the fact it was leaking oil past the spark plug tubes and onto the plugs. So I replaced the plug tubes and cleaned up the plugs still running on 3, I checked the timing and it was way out so I set it to around 8 btdc as I had read somwwhere and it ran better still not right though. Yesterday I went to move the truck and no start, winds over and backfires couple of times but won't run. I checked spark at plugs and all plugs have got yellowish/orange spark on all plugs in all leads. Points aren't burnt and rotor and cap look clean. It has got fuel at the carb but I thought id give it some engine start spray and no noticeable difference, also tried rotating dizzy through adjustment while cranking but still no real change Any ideas of what could be happening thanks heaps I hope this makes sense
