  1. Yes yes yes gimme one too my good chum
  2. I have done this with an oscilloscope on a few occasions
  3. I've always converted my points cars to 12V coils. No idea if one is better than the other, but modern coils can pack a lot more punch than they used to.
  4. Nothing wrong with complex if it makes things easier.
  5. It's a scavenging pump, not a supply pump. The turbo is still fed by the engine oil pressure. If the pump fails you'll just have oil falling out the exhaust.
  6. That's the best we could find too. It's pretty vague. Are you more likely to injure yourself if your AU Falcon has no roof lining?
  7. Is a missing roof lining a WoF fail?

    Get rid of the EGR asap, twin 3" pipes and a remap and you'll be flying.
  9. We often have trucks in with many lights, as long as they're on their own switches to disconnect them from the highbeam/light circuit we ignore them at wof time.
  10. I thought so, but nope. First reg in NZ. If however the car has come in from overseas and is first registered here outside those dates it will.

    Depending on how much you want to spend, T3 or MRP could be the go for aftermarket kits
  12. Can't remember the date but yup, if they weren't fitted from factory they don't need them. If however the car is being re-registered, you'll need to fit them.
  13. The flasher circuit will be it's own little thing where it just charges and switches, trying to measure it adds more load which messes up it's charge time. IE it's just a dumb analogue flasher with no set frequency.
  14. Why not just measure it when it's on solid? The voltage will be the same
  15. Nah you just had a dick of a wof guy, they've never been a requirement.

    They have massive filters, if I can't prefill a filter on those things I usually unplug the fuel shutoff valve and crank it until it gets pressure. Or I don't, depending on how much I care that day.
  17. But what if you want to make a backwards car?
  18. Maybe some heavy duty ones that can handle workshop abuse
  19. Shit yes they do, they're so bloody flimsy. We've reinforced all the ones at work, once ya slap a couple of extra braces on them they hold up alright but the casters still get fucked if you hit a snag / stone / step. They're still a pain having to jack the car up to put them on, gonna tell the boss to nab a couple of sets of these suckers.
  20. Do the cameras still freak out with the engine off? Another issue could be poor ignition coil earth or faulty coils. This causes a massive spike back through the 12V that can cause all sorts of haywire behaviour. Falcons for example are great for this and it trips out all the vehicle control systems. Honda's induce a spike into the crank angle circuit and causes the ecu to lose crank sync and ends up firing the wrong coil. Something like this could also freak the camera out.
