Exhaust mods in NSW - Standards/guidelines

Hi all,
I've been searching for some standards on exhaust modifications - with regards to clearances, where it can finish etc. But not just heresay, i'm after the australian standards or nsw guidelines.

Does anyone have a link or know where I can obtain a copy?

Reason being - a dual exhaust is going to be very tight on the FJ...

lazy mechanics

I hate LAZY mechanics who just BEND the proportioning valve bracket and brake lines out of the way to change the upper control arm rubbers. Especially on a v8 with power steering!

Bypassing Inhibitor switch

I've got to by bypass the inhibitor switch on an auto we are changing to manual. We have two power feeds into the switch and two wires out. The power in wire in is supplied from the ignition switch and is split in two just before the inhibitor.
There is also two wires out, one for the starting circuit, one for the reversing lights.
Am I correct in assuming it just a matter of connecting one of the power in leads to the starting circuit out wire to bypass the switch?

HQ diff rebuild

Hi all on old Holden, I got a question or 2 for the knowledgeable ones.
I'm rebuilding our HQ ute and have stripped the banjo diff. I've just frozen the axlebearing outer rings and tapped them in. One is loose. Has anyone else had this problem?
Also when I removed the tailshaft pinion I didn't do as the book said and worked out the bearing pre load. What should I do? Sujestions, Please. Thanks, Bruce

I.D. Plates

Hi guys, I've been offered what was once a HQ LS manaro, and it had an engine bay fire, and as a result the alloy tags are no more, after the fire the owner left it sit in the open and the rust devil has had it's way with it, my question is, is it possible to obtain new tags thru holden or would you have to get a new vin number thru the transport dept., or just take what's still useable from the car and srap the rest.
Cheers,
Dave

mental block

Hi,all....
I`ve had my HZ Kingswood(SL) now for 3+yrs now....but just noticed that the heater fan/cig. lighter/blinker indicators can still work even with key off and out.
Is that normal??
I have a mental block and can`t remember more than a couple weeks ago....
Doesn`t seem to be affecting the car at all.
