NUMBER CRUNCHING WHEEL OFFSETS

It is quite important to get the terminology correct when ordering or inspecting new wheels (or second hand)...Offset and Backspace are different terminologys that describe the same thing....Offset is the distance between the rims centreline and mounting face...if the mounting face is exactly in the middle, The wheel has zero Offset....If the mounting face is closer to the bacck off the rim/mag, The wheel is said to have negative offset....Naturally if the mounting face is further towards the front,then the wheel has a positive offset...Older cars (LIKE OLD HOLDENS) use negativley offset wheels (DEEP DISH)....While newer cars (LIKE COMMODORES) use a positivley offset wheel...Backspace is simply the measurement from the wheels/mag mounting face to the back off the rim/wheel.....PCD- pitch circle diameter is the imaginary circle that passes thru the centre of the wheels mounting holes....Falcon has a 5 on 114.3mm PCD while commodore has a larger 5 on 120mm...PCD is independent of the number of studs,you could have 4,5 or 6 stud wheels on the same PCD....Finally the last one is the wheel spigot or centre bore (THE HOLE IN THE BACK OF THE WHEEL)...The wheels spigot must fit the hub perfectly as it carries the cars weight-NOT THE WHEEL STUDS AS MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE!!!!!

bastard theiving little jerks

left my torana to get fixed at the mechanic last couple of days, last night someone broke into it, and fiddled with the wires trying to steal it. got interrupted and just stole my tweeters for my splits instead.

not happy, little bastards should get a damn job and stay out of other peoples property, if i caught them...

anyway, if anyone in the Perth area sees a pair of MBQuart tweeters for sale let me know coz its probly them...

can i even buy these seperate? and any good car alarm places in Perth?

or tell me if anything has happend to your pride and joy, get it off ya chest.

cheers

swapping 6 volt to 12 volt

Im finally sick of the 6 Volt electrics in my FJ. It takes for ever to start, and if id doesnt fire soon after cranking everything heats up too much, and has too be left before restarting. Ive tried the extra earth wire trick, too some avail, but after it did it at a busy servo when i was parked at the bowser! 6 volt has to go.
Ive got a starter and Gen out of my EJ
What do i need to do to the original Reg?
someone told me that you can simply swap ome of the original wires around. Id rather use the original reg if I can to keep her original

FJ Restoration questions

Hi in the middle of a concorus resto of my FJ and have a few questions, were The inner guards painted black or body colour originally? ive looked under a few and there black, but i got under one the other day and they were a badly stone chipped and frail light blue. Like they were originally body colour, but most people tidied them up with black paint???

Also where can you buy replica rubber front and boot floorings nowadays????

Spreading the Gospel!

On my daily walks and adventures i see all sorts of hold holdens.
I know there are at least 4 good old holdens regularly parked close by.

I was thinking, why dont we spread the gospel of the goat?

Someone could design some simple oldholden.com B&W flyers we can print out and put under the wiper arm of any old holdens we see.... inviting them to join our goat loving community.

What do people think of this idea?

SUPRA 5 SPEED MODIFICATIONS?

I posted a different heading this time, to get more interest. I am keen on some info on beefing up a Supra 5 speed. I have heard of some engineering companies that can do this work. I have a W55 (couldnt find a W58 for less than $1200). These boxes seem to want to fail on a downshift into second... That seems strange as this is not under engine torque, just compression. I wonder if the helical cut creates thrust in the opposite direction than when it would under accel, and it fails due to not being held in place correctly? Apparently, M20/21 boxes can be beefed y remachining the lay shaft with a larger circlip in order to combat a problem that is very similar.
