  1. Just brought a 2001 Honda Stream (family wagon) with the K20 (K20A2 from memory - there arte a few types) Can confirm - goes hard for what it is lol. needs intake for the dort noises. Good on fuel, cam chain too - later ones are even better. Had to change a knock sensor and it has the usual rocker cover and front crankshaft oil seal leaks, other than as above, pretty trouble free engine. Another common issue is the cams starving of oil due to poor servicing but if they have started to get a groove on you could just upgrade them while your at it. Great swap for a little oldie like yours.
  2. She's been purring of late. I struck a deal with the neighbor for a row of shelter belt trees she had lopped off at ground level by one of those diggers with a massive claw. She asked him to lay them out evenly to make things a bit easier to move but she got home and there are 2 massive stacks all pick up stick like. I have spent the last couple of months just here and there towing a few through two gates and about 50-60m to our place. Ive only got a pile of ones she had 'topped' left to go now, so without the massive trunks on them which should be an afternoons work. Love the tractor has high and low box, a few of those logs are pretty heavy and it would only move them in low 1 and full tilt. Ill take a couple of years worth of wood for us and then should any OSers need some pine next year ill have it split and will be selling by the trailer load / cube to help recoup mine and the neighbors costs. First mod - removing the door - bloody thing keep swinging around in the breeze and was generally getting in the way. Exhaust fell off - luckily a temp one was an EL Falcon away (fits on for now, as it came off the car, didnt even bother making it look better.) Will have a straight pipe with flap made up, because sounds boss with no muffler
  3. Rims need widening and more tyre imo something like this haha
  4. Well loading the trailer got easier - Lift, back under, lower, done.
  5. Well things are on the up and up......................Maybe i can change those light fittings in the barn now. Oh and theres multiple chains and tow ropes doing nothing in this pic - no dogeitery here.
  6. Oh its so easy - straight out of the car and on the back of the ute, job done in minimum effort and time. I think i could to with one of those forklift type 3 point linkage units for the front. Those hay forks are either not going to stay straight or poke someones eye out. Also lifted a datsun 140J body (no glass or diff, but still has motor and box) and moved it forward but not back. Time for more rear weight?
  7. So mucked around with the fuel pump - did the rear round part from this video and then pulled the top off - turns out the fuel delivery valve from the kill lever is a bit sticky. Wasnt too bad - i thought diesel pumps were voodoo science lol. Moved it back and biffed the top back on to see. Sure enough after a bleed, started and ran well. (will have to remove again and clean it up as i had to tap the pump a bit to start the 2nd time so still jamming Can almost lift an E46 wagon with no engine and box (pretty much complete car other than that) but couldnt move it due to no weight on rear. Thinking may water fill the rear tyres or get one of those trays for the 3 point link out back and throw some weight on it if I need to. Although moving an engine and box or a dead car stripped shell is all i really need.
  8. Hi @johnnyfive yea i did crack these while cranking - lower one was a 'squirter' but the top one had a case of the dribbs. Battery died but will try again tonight - hand pumping while they are open 1 at a time first. I did give it the tinyest est squirt of engine start ( i know not great for diesels) and it coughed so at least i know there is some life somewhere in there.
  9. Well I dont know if i need help in the head or just help lol. I went and brought this International 444 sight unseen and not running. Came with bucket, hay forks for the front and a plow thingo for the rear. Mostly want to use it for lifting and shifting stuff, you get sick of manual labour on 10 acres after a while. I got it pretty cheap and i think it has a fuel delivery issue rather than the motor being the issues. Old owner said it got harder and harder to start after being left for longer periods. I tried to bleed the injectors last night but im getting plenty of fuel to the pump, the pump just isnt delivering fuel to the injector lines - im thinking something up with the pump, as the hand primer pump is getting the fuel through the system and back to the tank, fuel filter is full etc but the "kill" lever is awfully easy to move back and forward (i dont know if this is normal). Just seems odd with no fuel coming out of the injector lines when cracked off (ive bleed a few LD28's in my time lol) I also havent worked out what the black switch to the left of the key panel does, and have already noticed some dodgy wiring. Looks to have a new starter, and alternator and a rebuild hyd pump so just those are probably worth what i paid for it. Anyway heres some pics - any advice is appreciated
  10. I think i might have followed this from Oxford a couple of weeks ago - Cool car.
  11. @Naratechwin - Dereg, rust in front xmember, Struts and and a few other bits sold. I do have the Bumpers, front is a bit smashed up but rear looks ok and the shift knob is still there.
  12. Hi Guys - sorry to barge in on the thread but I'm parting this 4 door out in Christchurch also. Have just joined that facebook group also, hopefully I can help a few people out. Great old cars with lots of quirks. Cheers Brock 0273380347

    diesel spam

    Hi guys, I have a TD27T D21 Terrano. Not the most powerfull diesel on the market but it gets us by. Just wondering if its worth getting a boost tap and guage and throwing a few more pounds at it as ill be doing a bit more towing from now on with it. Its auto so ill do the trans cooler aswell. Recently had the fuel pump rebuilt and its better than it was (was leaking internally and only ran with a 12V aux pump). Intercooler worth doing? Any help or advice much appreciated.
  14. Good work man - If it was really clangy on start up it could be one or more injectors causing an issue. I had an LD that sounded like it wanted to throw a rod, banging around on start up. Also really hard to start - huge drain. After a quick injector swap was all gravy. I like this is still getting upgrades also.
  15. Parts that take any normal person an eternity to do find / give up / have to wait for nos stock to roll around, and you bust them out from nothing in a "Lunch break" with "only a few tools" lol. So much admiration for your skills. Keep up the awesome work.
  16. May have already been said but blocked heater core? had an engine with similar issues and bypassing heater fixed it, then i replaced the core. My 1c.
  17. What is the H165 out of? From memory the 1200 ute housings with axles bolted up (all were H165) although hard to find these days. If from a 910 or similar make sure you dont have to pump the guards to make up for any extra width. How badly are you breaking them? I must have had the worlds strongest H150 in old TUFDAT - 5 years of absolute abuse (shown below) and it only got a little noisey lol. TBH its last 2 years were run with 100% lucas oil stabilizer as the diff oil. That stuff really works.
  18. Those frost plugs look like they are a little bit of an issue for L and R series nowadays - the test of time is starting to creep up on them i'd say. 2x L series (one LD and one L26) ive pulled of late have met their demise through frost plug issues. I suppose it depends how looked after the cooling system is previous to you. If it was me i'd smash a quality new water pump on there as well just to be sure. Its great to see this this still out being used - keep up the good work.
  19. Might be an option? https://www.yaldhurstmuseum.co.nz/storage-services/ Im sure they would love a Niva.
  20. Also what is it costing to "fill" on the various chargers? Nice to see real life running and costs from a genuine OSer.
  21. Yea that bonnet is the best ive seen bar the 2 i have. Get it hammered out and fixed properly plus fill it with stuff to keep the rust away once its done. Last owner before me said they had replaced the lower sections of all the doors so obviously not prepared or sealed properly. The rear guard area is a problem on 90% of datsuns - just needs a small amount of water to start fizzing in the join. Yes you will constantly be catching rust - but a whole lot less than most peoples classics.
  22. What about Barrel Bros in Aus? Also - this is gonna look so good on those - glad its getting the love it deserves.
  23. Wow you can buy lots of steel panel stuff for that - im sure there will be parts still in Sweden/Scandinavia and the likes. I got a front guard and boot lid for one of my Cedrics from Norway of all places. Keep up with the build, I may have to join you on a welding course. One word when stripping down - lots of ziplock bags. I didnt think i liked Saabs but this thing is awseome.
