  1. Assuming the two man method is the British car method, pedal down close bleeder, pedal up open again? I think some models had some tie up with the ride height hydraulics? Cannot remember, another thing although unlikely is if there is adjustment possible on the pedal that someone has fucked with. I admit I've given up a few times on some British stuff years ago and had them vacuum bleed at local specialist.
  2. If fuel delivery issue remove the injectors and go buy a bottle of injector cleaner, leave the injectors soaking in the cleaner overnight and it'll start when refitted. I can't remember literally anything else about those engines but have done that a heap of times.
  3. I usually watch them through the camera, the most interesting bit is usually how fucking massive the parking on the ship is. 8-10 levels of the biggest car park ever. And if the battery has been flat that's all you'll get, or sometimes hours of idling lol.
  4. Light stays on, doesn't sound like the problem because usually they just won't start. Normally if it is the fault you can just hard wire the plug to immobiliser and it solves it, if it doesn't you don't want to know what Hyundai want for a new module and keys programmed.
  5. Have you tried both keys? Next time it doesn't prime check for security light on dash. Quite common for Hyundai security system to play up basically the main reason the older ones won't start that I've seen.
  6. Used to be under Blenheim rd bridge, also used to get the 20 pinger skims. I doubt he'll be able to do a block though. Mace is near Shands road now isn't it? Used them to clean stuff a fair bit. Edit: I remember Flemming hates cleaning things but he is a good stick so you may convince him.
  7. The Bluebird was used for gymkhana hence the note. Anyway the MGB next to it (same owners) was in work last week and it was mildly amusing informing the Police officer owner that the internet thought he was a salty old munter.
  8. I highly doubt Rock Auto parts will be compliant despite $20 Silverline pads being ok unless they have brand names sold here. They may have changed things it has been a while since I was replacing quality pads with cheap rubbish because of rules but where you got them was more important than what you got. If that Mitsi has the front calipers with the two plates wedging the pads in I'd swap them for later ones because I hate them and they confuse me.
  9. Have fitted what I guess is a French ducellier distributor from I think a Talbot which is the only one I know that is a direct replacement, don't know what other vehicles had them but I think Landrovers did and late Hillman/Chrysler I assume after Talbot tie up. Not Japanese but still not Lucas.

    Oh I should have done bearings twelve times on that Cruiser haha I've never done bearings because they were needed, just people reading internet and getting them done for piece of mind or preventive maintenance. Also want to see bulletin, some of the high country stuff is running all day but very little mileage and I've never needed to do them either, front end rebuilds every six months though.

    Yep you could chuck an aftermarket one on to double check pressure, the last one I did didn't make the gauge read any better. The one I service with 1,200,000kms takes a while to build pressure after a service, 5-10 seconds of looking underneath for the leak.

    1hz don't usually need the bearings just the turbo ones but yeah just normal ones will be fine.
  13. Yeah aftermarket ecu required for mpi. I would put factory manifold back on (make sure injectors don't leak) fit an tc05 exhaust to the 06 front housing and boost it up until it won't let you go any higher, on mine around 14psi. Then if further modifications are required go to mpi, vr4 pistons and modern turbo.
  14. Will probably need mpi and a modern turbocharger for 200hp. A NZ new 85.5 on Euro spec Starion was the last of them and has 177bhp (132kw) with intercooler and TC06 turbo and a 12 valve version has a claimed 200hp but they're too rare to find or modify, after that twin cam took over. The usual Sigma/Cordia/Starion import engine will have 110kw, redline 6k.
  15. From a Starion which have gauges, probably had a digital dash though but still not a warning light sender they are just a switch. I'd take the gauge and sender unit to a instrument specialist to make them work together or go to Mitsubishi and buy the correct sender for your car or go aftermarket.
