Who rotates tyres these days?

I kind of do inasmuch as when a pair need replacing I'll include the spare in the assessment. The least fucked out of the three then becomes the spare.

I've been caught out like that too Jesse. When I bought my XC it had four nice Fairmont mags with 195/60/14s and the spare was a steelie with a full height radial. Not long after I got it I put the spare on the rear and it drove so badly I had to stop and change it to the front for the short journey to the nearest tyre shop.

What’s the deal with having no back seats for a wof? Remove seatbelts to?

New version of wof threshold comes out 1st April 

Theres some changes to what you can do without cert. 

The main change is fuel systems, it was quite open to mods before, now its the opposite. 

@ajg193 you might need to get a cert next time

Get fekked kent.

/I'll book it in for a cert some time this week. Looks like I lost the game.

 

Do you have a link to the changes? Would be good to get a full read, current VIRM page doesn't show the changes as far as I can see /edit, found change previews

https://vehicleinspection.nzta.govt.nz/__data/assets/pdf_file/0004/75289/In-service-VIRM-amendment-April-2020-WoF-only.pdf

 

Also new:

"Minor modifications do not include carburetor to injector"

Cert booked for 17th.

$590. That's 10 tanks of fuel. Or 10 wofs. Or a whole set of tyres. One and a half weeks of full time income for me.

Oh vell. Gotta be legal-shmegal.

 

Edit: Also, does anyone know what happened to the LVVTA standard for fuel systems? I can't find it anywhere anymore and would like to avoid paying the $11 for the chapter from the CCM if at all possible. Just want to make certain it is all done to spec.

Anyone know if there any issues around this rear spring setup cert wise?

Just the usual common sense stuff... make sure the shock and spring rates are compatible,  spring is captive, sits in the seat properly etc

That makes me sad. Needing a cert for carb-efi or efi-carb? Really?

It also limits ALL reflashing and tuning for cars without a cert. Technically that means replacing the old Bosch ECU in my SD1 with Speeduino would need a cert.

Is NZ slowly turning into Aus?

No, that hasn't changed, the needing cert for a different ecu only applies to turbo or supercharged cars, and that has been that way for a long time

@cletus

Roll cage in FJ40, any particular requirements for cert other than being outside of the A zone for front and rear seats?

Ive just been revisiting the hardlines for my fuel and return lines. 

Easily one of the most wankerish jobs to have to sort out.

Can you cert having AN hoses just run full length from motor to tank? Or do you need a hard line?

Depends if it's got belts mounted to it or not

Front seatbelts are mounted to what appears to be factory roll hoop? (At the least the hoop was fitted by dealer)

If the belts are not mounted to it, you only have to take the interior impact part into consideration

And if belts are mounted, what does that change? Location of the upper mount according to the template I know about, but anything else?
