For Questions Regarding WOFs/CERTs/NUMBER PLATEs

Quick query re: lowering and 100mm clearance. 

The document states measured from structure of the vehicle but not including bodykits or exhaust, etc. 

Does it include the leaf perch/shock mount of a diff?

I'm about to put my Jag 340s through the first wof it has had in nearly a decade. Like a lot of the 3.4 engines it leaks out the rear. Does anybody know how oil leaks affect wofs? It isn't a steady stream but it does drip. 

When fixing the car up I did find a sponge shoved up there. I wonder how long that had been there for... :grin:

Clean it all before wof, its generally not a fail item but

my morrie dripped on a wof inspector when he had it idling over the pit and he was pissed

 

like no shit dude its gona drip no matter what if its sitting there idling

 

if its a bad leak then it can come down to being unsafe, dripping on soemthing important (brakes eg. i had an axle leak but it ran down the backing plate instead of inside so was all good)

One old and bold I spoke to with the same engine in another car made a little sump with a tap that bolted onto the bellhousing. It has an  Something similar to the below which is pretty funny. I don't believe my engine even has a rear main seal. Just a slinger that is supposed to send oil back into the sump.

Please prove me wrong tho, that's all I can find related 

If I hear anything different I'll let you know. Thanks. 

My long suffering wof guy is used to the crap I bring in and we have a really good relationship by now. I'm moving soon and he is the only person I'll miss in this shitty town.

Wof emissions requirements 

https://vehicleinspection.nzta.govt.nz/virms/in-service-wof-and-cof/general/exhaust/exhaust-emissions

 

Cert emission requirements (note these are only applied when an engine swap is certified or a scratch built vehicle is certified- a vehicle with it's original engine , even if modified, just has to comply with the wof virm)

I had a read and cant find any exclusion for that so I'd say yes it does include those parts in the 100mm minimum

Thank you, sir.  That clears that up well enough.

Oil leaks-

I have an extensive track record of accidentally organising complete shitboxes for my reviews with NZTA (I've been doing this job since 2006 and my last review was the first time I'd ever done the road test procedure with a reviewer, as all the other times there was too much stuff wrong with the cars to drive them) 

 

Anyway the first time I got reviewed it was an s13 that had a really bad oil leak at the rear main seal, like put it on the hoist and there was a 100mm puddle under the car

 

I failed it because I figured it was pretty hazardous to motorcyclists and I'd better be thorough because nzta man was there...

 

the reviewer marked me down because legally there was no rule I could fail it for that  

 

 

 

And that's my sharn about that

Blimey. Sounds like he had an axe to grind. 

How refreshing.
