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.

hz dashboard

restoring an HZ tonner. dash set out: there are some blank holes in mine which I want to fill with the correct bits.
1/ the cluster of warning/indication lights... the coloured plastic has crumbled away leaving holes. Working from top left and going clockwise the lights are:
left indicator (green)... high beam (blue)... right indicator(green)... something (red)... Brake (red)... not used (red)... not used (red)... something (red)... something (red)...

Does anyone know what was written on these red indicator lights?
Can anyone tell me what the spare ones were used for? ie gts models, or monaro models and what they indicated.

A couple of problems

I'm hoping for a little advice. First I've got duel fuel. Twice now when running on gas the car has just stopped, full tank, first time running cool second time pretty warm. It won't start up again on the gas so I switch it over to petrol, turn it over a few times and its runs fine on petrol.
However, then try and start it on petrol the next day, no go. It seems like there's no fuel getting to the carbie? Then I switch it to gas, it starts and I drive around all day waiting for it to die in the middle of traffic.

It is Anti-SPAM time !

Hi gang,
You probably have not seen this simple little trick.

SPAM is a bit of a problem when you post your email anywhere on the web. What spammers are doing generally is using what is called a "robot" to automatically search and record email addresses. A robot/bot/spambot is just like a human websurfing but faster and automatic....however as as computer does, it can only do certain things. One thing it can do is search and manipulate text like in an email address, one thing it can not do is search for a picture of an email address or read the contents of an email address. But we humans can :) so if you use the new box at the bottom of "comments" as you post, your email will be shown in a little picture. Spammers grab emails automatically, they do not employ people to type addresses (which is what they would have to do) in as this would be way too slow and COSTLY.
