  1. Good to see you sticking with the british sourcing. Surprised you went for BMC power though
  2. Also https://thespinoff.co.nz/money/26-06-2020/the-cops-wont-ping-you-for-an-expired-wof-but-your-insurance-might/

  4. I've got the BOC 181, seems to work fine. Single knob makes setting easy.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. Twins FTW Strombergs or SU's of course /ling
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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

    KwS's TVR

    You are doing a great job tidying up this scruffy TVR @kws Well done, and thanks for the write-ups. Very informative.
  13. Lower hinge area is a double skinned piece Inner reinforcing section first Then the outer part
  14. Continuing on the door pillar, lower section Inner guard area first Then the pillar structure, piece by piece
  15. They should just make the auto <-> manual swap a cert item full stop.
  16. Have you considered a 2ZZ?
  17. Getting ready to run the work FB page????

    How to get low

    If you do all of that, you are looking at crossmember 80mm of the ground, is that right? Technically you can get certed for less than 100mm ride height, but my understanding is that it's hard/unlikely. Also have to look at what happens if you get a flat tyre, make sure nothing hits the ground. Can you cut up the crossmember and reduce it's size while replacing the strength? /4-link the rear and airbags.
