VP

Hi all I have a VP and I'm having trouble with my speedo some times it works fine and other times it does nothing is this a common fault? and is it the sender on the auto trans end or behind the instrument cluster? Or is it still a cable and the drive gear at the trans end is stripped/missing teeth any feedback would be great, I know I could work it out by process of elimination but guessed someone here would know, also it just goes then stops then goes and stops etc
Cheers

oil level

Hi all.

Quick question.Needed to top up the oil level in the HR. Checked the dip stick and level is overfull. Up to the full word. I have heard mixed opinions on whether to worry about draining some out or just leave as is. Engine does have a couple of oil leaks. My thoughts are to drain some out. What do you think?
cheers,

Kelvin

Cleaning / polishing alloy intake manifold / rocker covers

Can anyone help with what they do to clean an alloy intake manifold and rocker covers? Could they be acid dipped (as an engine block is)? Any advice / tips appreciated.

Honorable mention

Just had the bottom half of the drivers seat re-upholstered and resprung for my premier. I also had all the listings replaced on the back seat. I dropped them off to Gordan from MotaTrim at Acacia st Tweed Heads on Thursday and he blew me away when he rang early Friday to tell me they're ready. He did an awseome job in that time and all for $200.

"STOKED" What a legend.

Highly recomended.
