Aussie 4 speed question

Gearbox kit. I am fitting a kit to a m20 Aussie 4 speed. At the rear end of the input shaft, 15 old needle rollers came out. The book says fit 15 new ones. The kit came with an envelope marked "15", but contained 17 rollers. I find that 17 fit just nicely. Question to anyone who has actually done the job, how many should I fit?

electrical issue with indicators

HI, can I please get some opinions on my electrical problem.
I hope its just a cactus indicator can (which I cant find with a quick search)
one green indicator stays on, on my dash, and both rear indicators stay on.
this is when I have turned off and taken key out.
if I move the indicator stick it turns one or the other rear light off.
does it sound like a real problem or just look harder for the can and replace it?

Testing welds

Hi guys i have done all my welding and ground them all smooth with angle grinder and they appear to stuck down good but i would like to make sure before relying on it to hold up my car. Any ideas of stressing methods that wont damage the parts i have joined together. So far i have tried prying the join apart by lifting with a screwdriver. I have knocked with a hammer. From my experience weak welds break easily with little preasure. Any ideas would be great.

Welding

Hi guys i have just welded a sibframe repair section on my ute. I bought the section from rare spares and cleaned all metal then welded with an arc welder. After removing slag i stressed to area by trying to break the joins free and its not moving so the welds are holding good however i am told being that i am an amature welder i should now coat the welds with a water proof product such as fibreglass or seem sealer to protect pin holes in the weld from letting moister in. But i would like to use a strong product that wont just seal but add strength aswell.

Subframe damage

Hi guys after replacing tyres so i can drive my ute i noticed some subframe damage and was wondering how to fix it. 1 part of damage is where the sway bar is secured to the subframe. That area has rusted out and so the sway bar cannot be secured. The rust hole is only large enough to allow the sway bar attaching tab to rotate freely in the hole. Sorry no pics of that. The other damage is to the engine cross member which i have pictures of to help identify the problem. Im looking for repair options as i have set up everything already on this subframe. Ideas pleas. Thank you.

First drive

Hi guys it looks like all my leaks are now fixed. I have read that a weep can still exist a few days after its fixed. So im getting ready for its first drive and i was looking for advice on possibly monitoring oil level and water temperature while driving. Just as a precaution so i can detect possible problems before they become serious. I have standard hg belmont gauges which are just warning lights for temp oil and generator. Would this be sufficient. Is it safe to say if the lights do not come on then its safe and all good or are these gauges to slow to pick up problems quickly enough.

Celica gear box Fitted to a HG

Hi,
Have just brought a HG panel van with a celica steel case gearbox, but on close examination have found that the floor strengthening support has been cut away to fit it.
I have chased down a new support frame and gear box hump to weld in and replace the original.

As I would still like to use a Celica box and found that there a number of gear lever exit positions from the gear box.

Is there a Celia gear box with the gear lever far enough forward that I do not have to cut the frame again or is there a way of modifying the frame to accept mine or both.
