ring ding ring ding ding,one of these will drag of plenty of thumpy fat arse bikes,and steer and stop,they didnt make any bigger than 350cc because they became unridable,too light and peaky.

quote from another site...

The two fastest RDs I've seen were from Nisar's stable.
Both did a 12 second timing with the fastest from Baban Khan

Another Sh*t moral story

Once upon a time, there was a happy little fly buzzing around a barn who happened upon a large pile of fresh cow manure.

Since it had been hours since his last meal and he was feeling those pangs of hunger, he flew down to the irresistible delicacy and began to gorge himself. He ate and ate. And then he ate some more!!!

Finally, the fly decided he had eaten plenty. He washed his face with his tiny front legs, belched a few times and attempted to fly away. But alas--he had eaten far too much and could not get off the ground.

Wondering what to do about this unpleasant situation, the fly looked around and spotted a pitchfork leaning upright against the barn wall.

Commodore gearbox

Hey everyone, I put a Aussie 4 speed in my hz behind the 202 and it all goes well. Just wondering if anyone knows and can tell me about the ear ratios of this box. It came out of an wary commodore. But unsure exactly what model. I'm guessing it came off a red motor as the box is also red. Also are the top ratios the same with Aussie 4 speed and the 3 speed?cheers

Clearing sale shed finds

popped along to a clearing sale with me old man today, hoping to get this ute for a bargain. turns out it had been in the shed for about 8 years, but the 173 ran pretty smoothly, the biggest draw card was the lack of rust in this farm ute, inner rear quarters were good, floors were good, plenums were good, tray was amazing for a farm ute, and only a few minor dents and scratches. even came with books that appeared to have been preserved. Interest was shown all day by prospective buyers and i knew i wouldn't get a real bid in and stood back and watched it sell for $4,500.
the datsun 180B was in similar condition and fetched $2000 but the ol dodge buckboard ute trumped them at $7000
At least now i can say i have seen a Q with a drum brake front in the flesh

Final steps. Help required

Gents,

I've just about finished the EH clean up, rebuild and upgrade.

Yella Terra head, roller rockers etc. Full gasket kit, fresh coat of paint. She is starting to look like a ute again.

During this upgrade, I installed the HR front end with disc brakes. Everything has gone well until now. I'm stuck. I'm unsure what brake booster I currently have. Believe it is a VH44 ?? And I'm going to need a VH40 ? What series VH40 ? And how do I identify the difference between a VH44 and a VH40 ? Can anyone post some pics for me ?

Second, do I need to change my master cylinder ? And if so, what type do I need to fit ? I've heard a HQ Brake Master Cylinder will work ? Is it bolt on ?

related to other joke

A little bird was flying south for the winter.
It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground onto a large paddock.
While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him.
As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realise how warm he was.
The dung was actually thawing him out!
He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy.
A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate.
Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

Morals of the story:
(1) Not everyone who Sh*ts on you is your enemy.
(2) Not everyone who gets you out of Sh*t is your
friend.

ment for friday night but fergot :(

A turkey was chatting with a bull.
'I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree' sighed the
turkey, 'but I haven't got the energy.'
'Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?' replied the
bull.
They're packed with nutrients.'
The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave
him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree.
The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second
branch.
Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at
