  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 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
