auto troubles

i got troubles with my automatic. especially cold mornings. you start the engine, warm it up, go to put it in gear (either D or R). and give it some accelerator, and nothing happens, it will sit there for a minute or 2 and then finally start moving. wats wrong, is it the auto transmission or the stally?

cheers

for sale page?

Hey rusty,

How 'bout a buy/sell/swap/wanted page on the site? I know we can already put items for sale in normal posts, but i think it would be cool if it had its own page where you could see it all there in one place (pictures aswell) in front of you rather than searching through old posts so see what is available... anyways... just an idea! what do the rest of you guys think?

regards,
Cam

Lead replacement petrol

G'day Men,

Does anyone know what they put in lead replacement petrol (LRP) as a substitute for the lead. I was talking to someone the other day who said they had upped the sulphur content, but that doesnt make sense cause the fuel companies have been replacing normal diesel with low sulphur diesel to meet environmental regs.

Is lead replacement any good for lubricating the valves, upper cylinders etc.. or should we be using an aftermarket fuel additive to provide lubrication in the older engines.

Sports Steerin wheel + Boss for VL Problem

I have just bought a $200 odd dollar 'Autotechnica' sports steering wheel for my VL as the original wheel [Naughty Pottyword] itself. Now the boss that goes with it has 2 sets of screw holes which are both spaced differently. The set of holes which the new wheel requires are the outer ones & where you screw the original roundish plastic piece on the back of the boss to operatate the return of the blinker stalk, with the steering wheel straight, the protruding pieces on the plastic part for the blinker are located in the incorrect place, therefore it doesn's correct & turn off the blinker when rounding a corner & straightening up.
