Take a car over the pits?

Hi everyone,

Just a quick question is taking a car "over the pits" as people like to call it, just getting a blueslip? Or is it a different thing alltogether?
I'm in NSW if that makes a difference.

Thanks in advance.

Alignment shims gone missing...

Somewhere in the last day I have lost the suspension shims off the right hand side of the utility.

I've managed this once before, paddock bashing a few years ago but this time I haven't take the ute off the bitumen or even up a kerb.

Does this happen often? Any ideas why they have come loose and disappeared?

Jim

HQ-HZ Holden One Tonner/Ute Body-Chassis Fitment

I believe the HQ-Hz styleside ute has a full chassis underneath the body.

I have a HJ one tonner is it possible to remove the tray and cabin and drop a ute body on there, is the chassis the same for one tonners and normal utes?

Fuel Tank Problems

Hi all,

Have a problem filling up now that I have put the second hand tank in my Tonner. Tried 3 times at 3 different servos and the pump keeps clicking off. No obstructions in the filler neck. The only thing I could suggest is, in the pipe that comes out the top of the tank there was a little plastic valve thing (no idea what it does?) that was in the original tank but wasn't in the newer tank. Should I remove this or do I need it in there?

Also does anyone have the Ohm readings for re-calibrating the sender unit?

Thanks Ian

Exhaust backfire

Just a stupid quick question.

Got my 2 1/2 inch exhaust in my stock 186S and it now back fires ( pops and farts ) like mad when down changing or getting off the throttle at hi revs.

Sounds cool

Is this normal?

Chatter box # 2

Howdy All!
My Supra 5sp 'box is gradually becoming noisier in top gear. I'm guessing a bearing of some sort is near the end of its life.
I assume that the 'box will need to come out, but I'm nowhere near able to tackle this repair myself. Will this be a major repair or a relatively quick/cheap/easy task for a my quite reasonable local mekkanic to tackle?

Ta for insights!

HK'ing.
