  1. Spoiler alert! Lamp is from a third gen Camaro ** discussion here - https://oldschool.co.nz/index.php?/topic/74793-helium-elbows-magical-rx-7-fb/ **
  2. ** discussion here - https://oldschool.co.nz/index.php?/topic/74793-helium-elbows-magical-rx-7-fb/ ** Ok a little bit of progress on the wheel front - I painted one centre silver and reassembled to see how it would look and it came out good, I think the bronze colour is lush but only really suits having the whole wheels painted like Watanabes. And the more I think about gold the more I don't think it will fit in with the existing black and silver the car has right now. In other news I took off the 3pc spoiler to repaint as the top surfaces were very weathered and
  3. ** Discussion https://oldschool.co.nz/index.php?/topic/74793-helium-elbows-magical-rx-7-fb/ ** Let's talk about wheels, baby! So I made a start on stripping the bolts out and soaking in vinegar to get rid of most of the surface rust and discolouration. It's a shame they are welded 3pc rather than true 3pc so I can't split them up to make it easier. The outer lips have been painted silver and the centres black over top the original gold which has been a pain to strip back but I'm already half way through. I can't quite decide on the centre colour - the more I strip th
  4. try another browser other than Chrome - that seems to work.
  5. Also you may have luck getting a distributor from Australia - the 2.0L JA/JB/JD models were sold in slightly larger numbers there than the NZ-new and jap import models that made their way to NZ.
  6. That distributor you have is from an E33A Galant or similar (Chariot etc) with 4G63 SOHC 8V. It is optical and has both cam and crank position sensor inside and the ECU controls the advance/retard of spark. The distributor you want is a hall effect with built in ignitor and vacuum advance. I guess in this day and age they would be harder to find, but you could use one from an L200/L300/FWD Sigma or early Chariot with 4G62/4G63 SOHC carb engine at a pinch - it will still trigger spark to get the engine running but the advance/retard curve will be different.
  7. what a see you next tuesday who crashed into you - was he apologetic? seems he ran out of talent and you paid for that.
  8. ** Discussion https://oldschool.co.nz/index.php?/topic/74793-helium-elbows-magical-rx-7-fb/ ** As 3-4 months of winter snow is coming up in just a few weeks I'm going to take it off the road and do a bit of a refresh. It needs a bit of a tidy up body wise as there is some faded/crazed paint on the passenger guard and door, and some little bits of surface rust here and there to tend to. I've salvaged the Racing Beat Road Race header and Power Pulse pre-silencer and main muffler from the parts car And picked up some Enkei EK98 15x7 -3 wheels which could do with
  9. yeah just hope that none of the parts are wrong cause you're gunna miss that 30 day return window haha
  10. I was fuming and I was waiting a while for the person to come back, but what would it have achieved? it could have been a widdle old lady who was completely oblivious, or it could have been the hulk who would beat me to pulp. There wasn't any monetary damage other than a bent plate, but that didn't stop me from writing the most Canadian passive aggressive note left on their windscreen. But yeah, next time it'll be four flat tyres with their valve stems removed.
  11. not hugely, I would say FCs and FDs are more popular here.
  12. Just a small update - not long after getting it I put it through the Ontario equivalent of a WOF, the "Safety Check" which it passed not needing much. With new plates (old owner takes their plates off) and ridiculously expensive mandatory insurance it was back on the road. It's first legal trip was to the supermarket, where someone in their oversized Datsun prompted used my bumper (and 2 day old fresh plate) as a parking spot. I now have a dashcam & tyre valve stem remover kept in my glovebox for these times. Bought many a box of service it
  13. I was literally about the link the same video too! that coolant muck looked exactly the same!
  14. I'm definitely looking back at the 9752 "is my car oldschool?" forum posts and having a mild chortle
  15. So when are you selling up and getting a Proton Saga? Would be interesting to see what has been done to that lead car, that original 4G15 would probably move like that!
  16. diesel oil is fine it just has extra detergents in it, but judging by the varnishing under the rocker cover it could do with a bit of a clean. I'm running 15W40 diesel oil on my 6G72 DOHC and so far so good - has made the lifters quieter too.
  17. holy crap that sounds amazing! you can dort right passed the po-po and they are going to have no fkn idea where that Honda is.
  18. those compression numbers are pretty low (although they are relatively even) - combined with smoking issue it sounds like your rings are defective and it's perhaps letting too much oil into combustion chamber.
  19. small world, I know Brendan (and his brothers) from Taumarunui.
  20. Because I'm looking for some disc rotors myself for the VR-4, I went looking for the same rotors on rockauto and after looking more closely there and above at your pics, I still don't think those rotors are multi 4/5 stud. Compare the pattern on those disc rotors with the multi pattern on a set of multi 4/5 stud spacers and hopefully you'll see what I mean: Would love to find a pair of 276x24 4x114.3 slotted or slotted & drilled/dimpled but local options in NZ are very limited and even finding something overseas is hard now. Rear disc rotors are under $20 each on roc
  21. If you're staying 4 stud why are you getting DSM Eclipse/Talon rotors? They are 5-lug. The VR-4 Evo 90-92/Lancer Evo 1-3/Galant VR-4 92-96 rotors are the same 276mm as DSM Eclipse/Talon but 4 stud.

    4G63T blocks

    turbo RWD = wideblock N/A RWD = (generally) narrowblock, with some exceptions like 4x4 L200/L300. I believe all RWD N/A 4G64s are wideblock. turbo FWD/AWD = narrowblock And then when it comes to RWD 4G54 there seems to be a difference between auto/man that determines wideblock or not.
  23. in Toronto just a couple suburbs over. It was originally from Chatham-Kent which is near Detroit.
