Re: Stud - Tank Mounting

Why? did you break it? Off the bat, no I don't know the size, but if you have the wreckage of the old one, take it around to an engineering hardware supplier such as: Blackwoods, Coventry Fasteners, United Fasteners, Bolts & Industrial Supplies etc. Drop it on the counter and say: One of these i...

Re: New model car TR7 DHC 1:18

Regarding the headlights,one of them should be up and one down. As mentioned before,panels gaps too small and too neat. Realistic my arse. :lol: Realistic my arse I s'pose that comparison would depend on the panel gap of your arse! :shock: ..........not that I would care to use it as a comparator :...

Re: Skyline R31 Back Axle

The Oz made R31s ran a Borg Warner diff, basically pretty much the same diff (mechanically) as shit loads of Oz built Fords, Holdens etc. Just some of the common ratios for these are 3.23:1 3.5:1 2.92:1 2.77:1. Its relatively easy to put in a LSD centre. A diff spreader tool makes it easy. Changing ...

Re: Ever get the feeling of de javu?

Normally in order to determine fuel starvation you would check both fuel pressure and fuel flow rate. Pressure, you test with a fuel pressure test gauge..... should be no less than 2 psi. The manual states 2.5 to 3.5 psi, though practice suggests that figure is too high. Flow rate, you measure how m...

Re: An odd headlight issue

Quite a while ago I posted somewhere on this forum, exactly how the headlight wiring system works. It's a little complicated and I now don't remember exactly how it all works ( it took me quite a while to work it all out) But I suggest using the search function to find it. In an even older post I re...

Re: TR7 brake servo reservoir level going down

As your brake pads & shoes wear, the caliper and slave cylinder pistons move out to take up the slack, the fluid fills this void, thus lowering the level in the reservoir. When you change pads and or shoes you push the pistons back to allow for the extra thickness and this will push the fluid ba...

Re: Fuel pump washer for later pump

Two things that I usually end up replacing the bolts with studs are, starter motors and fuel pumps.
In both cases, on most cars, this makes fitting so much easier.

Yes you should have a gasket on either side of the spacer.....so two gaskets.

Re: New sun visors

The easy solution is.....don't look up! :lol:

Re: 13 inch wheels

Modern wheels tend to have a positive offset, this is because transverse engine front wheel drive cars need it to fit all the stuff between the wheels, this has become the de-facto fashionable look for nearly all modern cars whether the are fwd or rwd. Whereas our cars are of the 70s, when the deep ...

Re: Classic Cars mag KDU487n

It was a single overhead cam, with no combustion chamber in the head. The valve seat inserts were level with the bottom face of the cylinder head, & the entire combustion chamber was formed in the piston. When you put the head down, face down on a bench, it was sitting on the valve heads. Hasbe...

Re: Classic Cars mag KDU487n

That's the first I've heard of that. I'm no expert but the RV8 is an ohv design and how would you adapt that to work 4 valves per cylinder? In theory it would be possible to have 4 valve heads operated by pushrods, but it would be too bloody complicated to be worth the effort! Of course you could p...
