Radio Ga Ga update

How'd all
I thought I'll give you an update on the retrosound radio. Well I've been chatting their tech support in the States & the fella I've been chatting Greg Shannon has been a great help. I've mention to Greg that I've read up & a lot of this was popping up on the American car sites & they were older cars & this issue was pin pointed to an RF interference from the ignition system BUT they were all HEI or MSD ignitions.
So Greg said he believe it was the same & suggested new spark plug leads, but were pretty new anyway.
So went searching some & found all the info myself & the fix was as easy as fitting a set of resister type spark plugs. So I the D on a little ten minute drive & so far so good & it looks like it's done the trick.
P.S many thanks to all for your input!!!

Advice sort

Hi Everybody
Just chasing some advice on my HG. I have pulled the cross member out of my HG and have found the previous owner have make some very special repairs. Three of the 4 pivot pins have welding to them and one of the ball joints in the lower control arm has been welded in. The entire cross member obviously has been in a pretty hard accident and has dents everywhere.
My dilemma is I have a near perfect HK cross member which has control arm nuts.
Is it worth while changing this over?
What problem will I have from this set up.

price testing or self bidding?

was a real nice 307 hk gts on fleabay, got to 79600 then it was pulled with a day to go as the seller said

"This listing was ended by the seller because there was an error in the listing. "

I wonder what was going on there?

It never hit reserve but I suspect it was 80K and maybe it was a price test before selling to an already agreed party? who knows...

the listing was pretty good and complete unless it was a six converted and someone pointed it out? no shots of the plates tho

nice looking complete car I thought.

Can say I have been from end to end now...

20 days 6000km + and we have traveled from from Los Angeles to Chicago using as much as Route 66 as we could find.

I could have used another 20 days and many more km to explore further as much of the road has different routes as the course of the road changed many times over the years...

Handed back the rental car, dirty, with a slight gearbox knock, and in need of an oil change...

If any one is planning it, do your research and double the estimate of time as you will always deviate from the known path..

Cheap five speed conversion

It would be a good buy at the price it's at now ($102.50): http://www.ebay.com....
Looks like an early TA22 1600 Celica five speed. I knew a few blow blokes who flogged the cr*p out of these gearboxes behind a Holden 6 and couldn't break them.

Radio Ga Ga

How'd All
I have an issue with my retrosound retro radio! I wired the radio as per intructions as with the many other after market stereos I've fitted before. I wired the power wire to the fuse box & the memory to 12 volts & earth it as you. The issue I have the radio works great when car ain't running but when you start the motor the radio drops in & out, now I've to resolve this a few ways & it still does it!! I tried by hooking power up to 12 volts & no fix I then hook the earth wire up to battery earth & still the same problem. I check the alternator & it's charging at 14.4 as it should! I spoke to the supplier & he's adornment it's a power supply issue (DERR) I know a auto sparky & suggested a capacitor of some sort to drop the volted!
Any ideas would be appreciated!

HELP red 202 lost power & died

Hey there I need a bit of hand diagnosing a problem I had today.

I have an LX torana with a red 202 (auto) I got about 2 k's down the road and I lost power. No coughs or splutters but there was bit of surge, then nothing. I pulled over and the car stalled in Drive and the brake pedal was pumped up, turned it over again and the brake fixed itself but it still wouldnt idle, i could get it to run for a little bit while holding the excelerator on but it would still die.

I checked all the vacuum hoses which seem fine. I checked the fuel filter (glass type) and it seemed ok.
The battery died after trying to turn it over so bought a new one and put it in this was 3 hours later then it was fine started, got me home.
