Mine has a faulty digital face and cycles constantly between different functions. Has anyone had any experience with these problems. The litres per hundred km's is working ok. As for the others who knows!
Thanks.

Overlander

Does anyone know if the Overlander is still being built?
There was a bloke in Perth doing it for a few years (Mick ???). Company name was Molecraft, but he seems to have disappeared. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Temperature gauge still not working

G'day All,

A couple things.

I have purchased a new temperature sending unit, installed it and cleaned the wire going to it but there is no change at all in the temperature gauges operation, the highest it goes to is just on the blue line I also got another temparature gauge from the wreckers but still no change. Also my car (automatic transmission) uses alot of fuel nearly 19L/100kms Im going to install a weber carbi from an XE Falcon, I am not a lead foot I am very a conservative driver, I drive this car cos it's a cruisy comfortable ride but the fuel bill is sending me broke and I am considering selling this thing and use the money to get another engine for my Mitsubishi colt which gets 7L/100km in the suburbs. Anyhow one thing at a time, if I could just get my temperature thing working accurately then I would be happy for now.

Odometer advice

Hi all,
I had look at an EH on the weekend that I had supposedly done approx 150,000 miles. It has the original engine and also has books to prove it (matching numbers etc.). However, not being an expert I questioned the guy selling it as to why the odometer was reading something with a 6 as the first number. He told me that the first number (further most to the left) is actually 10th's of miles.

Which motor/gearbox for HZ sedan.

I'm thinking of swapping my 202 out for a V8 but have no idea what motor I should be choosing. I'm wanting to get something with fair performance (stock is ok) but still reliable. Can anyone give me some suggestions on what I should be looking for.

Also I'm not sure what gearbox I'm running at the moment but its only a 3 speed auto and I dont think its gonna last much longer. I think I've read about Celica gearboxes being matched with the 308, does anyone have any comments on this? Or maybe a better alternative taking in mind I'm not really out to spend loads but want something thats going to increase driving pleasure.

Thanks... Question...

First of all, just wanted to say that this site is unreal! Good work guys!! Keep it up!!

Secondly. 202, VK EFI, Extractors. I had the car at an exhaust place so that the guys could fix an exhaust leak at the head for me.

When driving it home, every time I stopped, then tried to get moving again, if I didn't push the accelerator to the floor, the good 'ol K wanted to die.

As it happens, it seems that if i just tap the accelerator, it wants to die. It only happens on occasions now, but I have no idea what the prob is. Any suggestions?

fuel

Hi guy's and girls..

Just reading the message about fuel that 70ute wrote made me think about this email a mate sent to me a while ago. If this has already been discussed on this forum earlier before i joined than i appologise for bringing it up again but i thought it's an interesting topic and i'm interested in your thoughts on it.

This is the email i received probably about 8 months ago...cheers, Shane:
