    And you can buy a breaker thing that converts them. I have one for my mig.
  3. I've bought a couple of small bottles of CC recently... They're about the size of a large hip flask and are made of plastic. I'm going to have a few and fill them with my poison of choice before the ride. Having a 40oz in my backpack was hard work last year!

    FYI. The only difference between a 15A and a 10A plug is the size of the earth pin.

    @sheepers Have you ever considered one of the retro sound mp3 players Link so you dont need to have an out of place modern head unit? They're pretty sweet little units.. *edit.. They make one for a cruiser, should fit a crown.. https://www.retromanufacturing.com/products/1972-78-toyota-land-cruiser-fj40-hermosa-radio?rq=yr_1972~mk_toyota~md_land-cruiser-fj40&variant=29743800067
  6. Have to stuff a bottle in the old back pack. I'd rather be dusty on day two than be riding the Motu on 6 and a half cylinders. Camel back full of jack perhaps?
  7. Woo I wonder if they will have twister in their games selection.

  10. Serious question though. What shops are in the area for night one? Is the a piss shop? Food shops? Pub/greasy spoon?

    the dude helping me seems to have a direct line to the dodge system where ever he works. i asume a dodge dealership, or an auto sparky. ill dump all the info he gives me in my build thread once ive got it all and hopefully any other people can find that info that simply wasn't freely available. although he called my project ambitious... i told him thats how we like it in NZ

    I expect that these are all 15A, so won't necessarily work on a 10A household socket.

    Looking at getting a new welder so dragging this back up. I need a portable stick welder for repairs but would like to have a plasma cutter set up in the workshop at other times. Needs to be able to cut and weld up to 10mm steel. These two on tm look like they would do the job. https://www.trademe.co.nz/business-farming-industry/industrial/manufacturing-metalwork/welders/auction-2237324533.htm https://www.trademe.co.nz/business-farming-industry/industrial/manufacturing-metalwork/welders/auction-2237872314.htm Will need this to run off normal house socket. When cutting/welding 10mm would it go for a decent amount of time without cutting out or am I asking too much? Keen to hear from anyone that has experience with them. Or alternatively I have 3 phase in the shed. Would it be better to get a decent plasma and a cheap portable welder?

    Additional Barry fact: the center throttle layout was mainly due to a lack of space between the brake pedal and side of the body. Many left hook variants of the American cars we saw here in the 10s and 20s were conventional layout (clutch-brake-throttle). Also be careful if you have to hone or bore the engine. I think these the deck surface is off square to the bores by 7 degrees. I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure its the 7 they did some sillyness on.

    If you do some research you will find thatbthe Cadillac type 53 was actually the first car to have conventional controlls in 1916. Also worth noting is prior to that's many cars used the same pedals but with the accelerator between the clutch and brake pedal.

    I've done wood frames before. If you take your time, you may not need to bend timber much if at all. But be prepared to spend some time getting the fit correct.

    Yea that place is actually middle of nowhere. On the side of the mountain so when it rains, it rains. It's not a shortcut to anywhere so only like 5 cars a day go up it. Probably 15mins to new Plymouth.
