Twas the night before New Year...

...and Rob was pulling out hairs.. I have finished working through my little list, with just one thing left to get sorted... The Bleeding Brakes.

Thanks for all the advice so far, I'm happy the brakes are as bled as they can be. All is adjusted and new. I suspect the pushrod may be the problem as suggested.

Another paint thread

Hi, seeking info about paint compatability ie does acrylic go over jam, jam over acrylic, etc. Also info about painting jam as opposed to acrylic, mix ratios, any problems etc. Also what about clear over base paint, any hints?
Can't seem to find any good sites with this info. I want to respray my van myself, not because I want to do it cheap, I want the satisfaction of just doing it.
Anythings would be a help.
Cheers, Big Al

VR Gearbox troubles - help :P

Howdy all,

hope santa was good to you all, all he gave me was gearbox troubles,

the auto in the vr seems to be on its way out, the fluid level is fine, and the fluid clean, but 1st gear started dropping out intermitently about a week ago, now 4th (od) wont engage under any throttle but will coast and upshift, but flash back to 3rd as soon as throttle is applied, if that makes sense :)

i've got a vp with the th700, aside from the loss of the lockup torque converter due to the different wiring looms, am i able to bung the 700 behind the v6 ?

Roasted Trimatic Part II

Image: 

As per my previous post of the roasted Trimatic
This is the picture of the servo cover - The cover you remove to adjust the bands. The owner only has put transmission fluid in transmission - & the Gearbox has only got reverse & 1st gear.
I have never seen a box this bad either..
The oil is thin & smells like burnt transmission fluid.
The box is in this condition due to owner abuse, No burnouts or anything like that just no maintenance

little vic cruise

Image: 

Hk prem, red Barron, porch monkey, a mustang and myself went on a pub crawl around the Vic bay yesterday.
Stopped at Queenscliff but the markets made it impossible to stop the traffic was hectic as.
So cruised around to indented heads.
Had a great feed out in the garden lounge and a few ails.
Headed on to portarlington but took some dragging away from the great atmosphere from there.
Porchy munro decided that the gas was needed and lucky the only fuel stop in 25 ks was open , but he got there at 2 10 and it closed at 2 (some smooth talking was needed to get the pump in the beast.
Off to drysdale for a quick one then into geelong for a drive through town.
said out good buys to porchy and headed for the smelly river .

diff conversion toyota hiace to torana

Has anyone ever used a toyota hiace van diff in a torana but converted it to disk brake I am doing this mod because after 5 laps on the track the brakes are begining to loose feal due to the drums expanding as the car is set up with brake drag to allow better controll of the (drifting) if you would call it that.
it works quite well for 5 laps or so but fades off to fast to predict without crashing .

My New Year Tech Tip

OK here it is, one tip only. If you have lemon trees in your yard and dozens of the pesky things litter your lawn you can use the juice and pulp as rust remover. Yep just cut em in halves and squeeze into a bucket then use on rusty steel liberally. Cleans steel as good as new and it's FREE.

roller rockers

im buying some roller rockers for my 350 chev and was lookin at the crane ones the crane gold series ones would work out about 560 from aceleration parts, or they have then energizer series that would only work out about 370 or so would i be beter off goin for the gold series or saving some money on the energizer ones, it seems they only make the gold series as a 1.5 ratio with the 7/16 stud, but it will do, ive looked at yella terra but you can only get the basic ones at the price i can get the good crane ones.
