Amelia Earhart

It's really looking like she and Fred Noonan forced down on Gardner Island and transmitted for Days afterwards.

Incredulous was the Schoolgirl who picked up Amelia's post forced down Messages and noted what she thought were the words "New York City".

Why the Coast Guard couldn't interpret that is beyond me.

RIP DENNIS FERGUSON

Herd the greatest news today that serial paedophile Dennis Ferguson was found dead in his Sydney home. I don't usually support any of this but was glad the world is rid of that kind of person. Kids are free now.

Flushing Cooling System

Why don't red engines have a drain tap on the block? I can't find one on my 138 red. How are you supposed to effectively drain and flush the cooling system without a tap on the block?

Vs Commodore Heating Problems.

Hey guys.
I have 1995 Vs Commodore 3.8L V6 Series 1 Acclaim model.
Went for a drive this morning and It started over heating within 5 minutes.
Pulled over stopped the car and The over flow was just gushing out.
Now I'm not sure if the fan kicked in or not but would i have to replace the Thermo fan and the Thermo stat? or is there something i should be looking for?
Cheers guys.

Progress

Well, rear brakes done, new shocks at th back and the new Tailshaft fitted. Took her for a spin and much improved :-) No longer vibrates at 45-50 mph or when backing off from 60. Still a trace of vibration at speed but this feels more like its coming frm the engine, not the transmission like it was. Back end feels lovely and firm now with new springs and shocks.

Tomorrow will be wiring in the power amp and speaker to run the iPhone from then will be flushing the cooling system and refilling with green coolant (currently running brown sludgy water!). Getting there!!

Torana

Hey, just wondering what is the largest possible wheel/tyre width able to fit under the rear wheel arches of a stock LX SL Torana (i.e. no flares and standard suspension) without rubbing. I am willing to fold back the inner guard lips to allow extra clearance by the way. I have 14x7 HQ-pattern Penuts up front and they just clear without rubbing, however it is lowered at the front. I simply need this info to get the best stance I can possibly get without butchering my guards to fit big 10 or 11" rubber under the back. Cheers.
