  1. Thanks. It's a torsion bar that goes inside the tailgate hinge for my woodie. The ends are ground square to fit into a cast bracket. One end shown below.
  2. Any idea what a good choice would be for steel selection for a torsion bar spring. Needs to be something I can get in NZ. OD ~11mm, length ~1140mm. I need it to twist about 90 degrees. @ajg193 @sheepers
  3. Twins FTW Strombergs or SU's of course /ling
  4. Can park self contained at Manfield. Maybe the wagnats sticker would get you in?
  5. Sure. Wearing the 2019 version today as it happens.
  6. Wrecking yards / parts bins are good to look through for options. Also disc brake catalogs like DBA https://www.dba.com.au/products/catalogue/ for alternative disc options that will make things fit better.
  7. You can make your own caliper adapter mounts, no worries. Best/easiest if they are flat plate of reasonable thickness. It's OK to weld spacers on to get the position correct. Here's a pic of the plate for the Mercury. On this I just let the spacers float on the bolts The ones for the Morris are on the top left of this pic, spacers are welded to these It's usually a matter of trying calipers out until you find a set that can be mounted easily.
  8. I had a similar problem firing up a Holden V6 that hadn't been run for years. I ended up pulling the fuel rail from the manifold and resting it on the engine, with the injectors fitted. Ran the fuel pump via a hot wire then 12v on/off to each injector in turn. Some started working after that. I swapped the 'dead' ones for used ones from the old engine. Sprayed quite a bit of atomised fuel around the shed though. YMMV
