What kinda green brake fluid is that?

It was some stuff that I got when i did parts at the Hyundai dealer. OEM Hyundai, but not sure who actually made it. They've changed suppliers a couple of times since.

Good idea to change the rear hose. Those particular ones with the textured outer were original equipment on a lot of cars in the 70s and 80s and they can be quite deteriorated without showing any signs of perishing on the outside like a 'normal' hose  

100% true. 3/3 blocked on the Marina. Thanks for the heads up, its why I just went ahead and ordered hoses before even checking the old ones.

I certainly never paid anything like that for freight from the US for similar size packages.

I could probably use Youshop if i needed to. I've been in touch with Horopito who have one there, but its like pulling teeth getting them to do anything.

Pretty sure you shop dont do automotive parts. What I read on their ts and cs when I had a hissy fit about rockautos unconsolidated shipping

Ive used youshop for plenty of car parts in the past, but always from the UK. Havent used youshop USA, but should be the same.

I think the only things I have ever shipped with youshop is auto parts - eBay rock auto or Amazon free shipping to Portland Oregon USA thanks - then youshop no problem even for used auto parts

No, I think the detailed production records were lost when the Zetland factory closed.

Hard to work out from chassis numbers, as each variant was numbered from 1001, so yours is the 572nd Deluxe 1750 manual Coupe. Production was about 200 cars per week, roughly 40% were Deluxe, and 40% Coupes, but I don't know the % for engine and trans. You could probably use a spreadsheet to make a guesstimate.

Because your chassis number doesn't start with a "Y", it's probably NZ assembled. If you have the original rego number, you will be able to find out the date first registered, the build date would probably be only a few weeks before that.

Honda have some NZMC records, but I don't think it includes any Marina info.

Could be worth asking on FMM forum, or on one of the Aussie Leyland facebook groups.

I have a similar issue on the Datsun and its been plaguing me as to how to rectify to be the same as the other side.
Was browsing a restoration catalogue yesterday and saw those contour gauges and thought why on earth are they in here?
