Ben Simpson

If your around Ben, I don't know if you saw this or not, but after the hassle with your mates car, I thought this may be a cost effective way to go, rather than re-shelling.

Just a thought?

What a feckin tosser!

Auckland motorway yesterday, cruisin in the HJ at no more than 110km/h. Black Audi roars up behind me, sits for a few seconds then closes the gap and starts flashing his headlights. 'Oh no you dint' I thought, then I hit the picks! Boy, that woke him up! He backed off a bit, then closed up again, pulled up on my left (as I was in the fast lane... 100km/h speed limit) we exchanged 'pleasantries' and funny waves, then he nailed it, pulled left over two lanes and disappeared up an offramp.

Recommended Car Alarm.

Hi Guys,

Can anyone recommend from experience a good car alarm system that is compliant with Aussie Insurance companies? I am after something with shock sensor and immobiliser.

I was thinking of going the Viper 5901 but it doesn't seem like it's compliant.

Also does anyone know if 3 point immobiliser systems work on Old Holdens? I thought it was starter, ignition, elect fuel pump (mine has no elect pump).

Regards,
Paul.

Rochester

I have recently purchased a brand new Rochester rr601a carb for my 308 and it has LPG written underneath so I presume it is a gas carby. The seller never mentioned it was a gas carby and won't answer my msgs. So my question is can a gas carby be used with unleaded fuel only I know dual fuel is possible. What is the difference between a gas carby and petrol carby? How much will it cost to convert it to petrol only? Thanks for any info.

186 rope seal crankshaft

Hi everyone,

Just wondering if anyone can help me out, I've got a leaky rear main and my mechanic insists that the only way to fix it is to get a new crankshaft that he can fit a rope seal to. I'm not too mechanically minded so he's been doing the work on it for me. I currently have a crankshaft that takes a neoprine seal but we cannot get a seal for it (tried some old reconditioners and rare spares). Spare parts shops say they can get it but apparently its not the original type (we've tried it and it leaks). The neoprine seal they give us needs to be cut down to fit correctly.

mechanics that are happy to work on old cars

hey guys,
I'd like some suggestions on a mechanic that is both happy to and knowledgable to work on older cars in the chelsea / carrum downs / seaford / frankston area?

I simply just dont have the time I hoped I would to get my engine sorted on my HR myself, it's beyond me... so I would like someone to sort out the first initial tune up for me so I can atleast drive it around on a permit when I'd like to... I really just need the timing done, carby tune up and a little look over the motor...

John Cain Manifold

Hi all

Has anyone had any experience with John Cain manifolds?

I've been offered a 4 barrel one for my 202 off a guy for $80. Which is a tad cheaper than a new Aussie speed one I was looking at getting for $500.

Is there much of a difference as that's $400 I could realy do with saving lol.

Cheers
James

Vp=>Hz V8 conversion, getting loom out of VP?

Right, drivetrain all in. Now need to get loom out of vp. Dash out, unplugged most plugs, ie computer out, grommets out. all discnnected from dash, bar maybe couple plugs near grommet behind cluster. Going to cut wires to doors and couple other wires. Have auto electrician lined up to wire back into hz. Problem is how the hell do i get loom out? Seems like wires hard wired into fuse box under bonnet. wires then split into many wires under dash, so would fit through whole anyway. which way is best?
