  1. @kws try this... https://www.niceproducts.com.au/category/34757-wheel-nuts They have loads of sizes and once you know the ones you want you can order them through ripco.
  2. Sorry for late reply/update on todays meet. Just had a very keen k11 foamer visit us so its been a whirlwind of nissan March chat. Anyway- yeah as Will said- great turn out. Thanks so much to those that made the effort to come along. What a great bunch of mates to know. I totally enjoyed the banter at the picnic table today and it was worth the trip for that alone. Pies were great (for those of us lucky enough to get one- sadly a large bunch of motorcyclists had also decided that Pelorus bridge for lunch was a good idea and I think they scoffed most of the pies) I took a few pics (well Hannah did) so here we go...
  3. Quite excited to see what car Dave @avengertiger managed to cobble together from the many bits in his yard...
  4. I'm sure that man with your skills could make one working Avenger out of 7
  5. Please do come along Andy. Would be good to catch up. Hopefully we can help persuade you into sifting about on the classifieds for another choice old classic
  6. Yes hopefully Dave @avengertiger can make it along. Also steve @Gozza i hope you can come along in your triumph!
  7. Cool- Matt - @1 down then up is riding his enfield out so you'll have a riding partner. You can do biker gang signs and remark on us horrible car dwellers
  8. @Sanfiddy @1 down then up hopefully @Slacker_Sam. @skutaman look to be cruising along for some windy roads and fine pies. Hopefully @maxted is gonna nick his dads car for it too! @Willdat? I presume with the fine weather you'll be over doing the Heaphy then? Who else?
  9. Well folks it looks like the weather is going to be lovely this weekend so its all go for a cruise to pelorus Bridge for lunch. Should we aim to meet somewhere in Nelson and cruise out from there? Most obvious place is at the nelson classic car museum (formally wow) at 10.45am. Drive off at 11. Sound good?
  10. Is this something that you @cletuswill be dealing with or is it heavy vehicle engineers? Sounds like a big fuck up by nzta!.... https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/national/447774/nzta-manual-change-causes-headaches-for-horse-truck-and-motorhome-owners
  11. Nup - actually live at the bottom of hills - both ways. Great for staying fit, not so great for owning cars with no starter motors Update coming soon. I have a Honda starter from the wreckers to try out and see how well it fits in.
  12. My Datsun engine has a total loss replacement system. This is because of two reasons.. 1 : Its a British design engine with nothing more than an alloy head added (apparently..) 2 : It's been installed into a British car so its just trying to fit in with what goes with the territory.
  13. yes please do. Especially model trucks.
  14. Yeah I can do that- but also yeah it has a one way clutch and by the time I find/buy one of those that works the correct way I might as well get a honda starter. I have my starter motor squirrels out there looking for me and will have an answer soon. If the Honda route doesnt work I have worked out a way to use the scooby item. I'll put up more details in the next update. For now I have put the starter issues to one side and I'm concentrating on making a small pile of alloy filings on my vice as I play about with chain tensioners etc..
  15. It's pretty easy- I could guide you through. I'll park the Imp on your deck and bang on your roof when you take a wrong turn.
  16. I could use it as an excuse to thrash one of the Marches over the mungatapu. If Dylan gets stuck I can help tow his nissan out with my mighty nissan.
  17. Ideas for another Nelson meet. How about a convoy to somewhere for lunch. Maybe we head out to Pelorus bridge? Sunday 1st of August. Gives people 2 weeks from now to sort their shit out/dust off the classic. Nice drive/ can test our cars handling prowess at the new 'safe' speed limit of 60kph over the Whangamoas... (I was naughty once and did 65...) Good cafe with nice food and plenty of parking. We could hopefully entice young Dylan @dirty_leppa to turn up with his mighty Datto since he lives just up the road from the cafe! @ynot @Willdat? @Gozza @Slacker_Sam. @avengertiger @moparmuppet @CPR Sierra @maxted @Sanfiddy @2sik25 @scooters @Paulluap @AttySlungGatty @dirty_leppa @JasonO @footey @nzvohc @GMH63 @mattj @ThePog @Supercluck
  18. yep- if I mount the subaru starter in its stock position I'll be turning the motor the wrong way. Didn't even think about that. Whoops. However I have a couple of options. Either use a Honda starter from a counter clockwise civic/accord etc. These rotate opposite to most starters. But I need to check the pinion tooth pitch. From what I can see via rock auto pics they are the same tooth count , 9, and look about the same diameter. I am guessing that most Japanese cars share the same pitch teeth on ring gears? Or I can mount one of my subaru starters from the front, over the engine. I have just checked and there's loads of room and will be easy to mount. It would also look more symetrical and the subaru starter was going to be pretty close to the parcel shelf if mounted above the box as originally planned. However if I do this I'll need to turn the ring gear around. Probably add some welds to stop it potentially getting nudged off because the flywheel retaining lip I had machined will now be on the wrong side. Nothing too drastic or unsurmountable in the grand scheme of this project and I'm lucky someone spotted it at this point!
