    Radius Rod not lining up

    Thanks for all the advice guys, I guess I'll unbolt the lower control arm and double check the rear radius rod bush is in the right way, as I'm pretty sure that I have the radius rod itself the right way and go from there. Thanks.

    Radius Rod not lining up

    Hey all, I've recently started replacing the bushes in the front of my vt. Only problem is, now that I'm putting it all back together the radius rod on the passenger side fouls on the sway bar. It doesn't do this on the drivers side, it just goes straight in no problems. I've replaced all the...

    Yeh, that's a fair thought. As you can see thought, I will need to put more of the interior back together before I stress about it too much, so I might just end up puing the new radio in the stock place who knows? Figure it out after I've done the important stuff :P

    The vb/vc and vh/vk headlights and headlights covers are different. I actually have a set on there in the second picture, they're just so clear it's hard to notice hahaha. I'm considering putting a parts car vh I have on club rego just so I have something old to drive, so maybe if that happens I...

    It does have a remote, but I kinda like being able to have everything in reach. Also, I am putting A/C in and don't particularly want to mount it in the glove box so I'm not sure where else to put it?

    I knew my headlight covers were faded, but didn't quite realise until I put these new ones in front of them. Found a bunch of bog behind the tail lights (also, pretty sure this is the first photo of the rear on here). And here she is as she sits now. Next couple of steps involve getting...

    Info Needed - Vc V6 Speedo Adapter

    So when you say terminal, you mean one of the physical pin outs? Not something within the bin file? Or is that something to ask your tuner? Was the opto-coupler something you had to get from a specialty store or just from ebay? Cheers

    Info Needed - Vc V6 Speedo Adapter

    Thanks guys, that was quick. I later found this in another thread: "There is also a few issues with speed sensor due to a t5 being a hall effect and the PCM only accepting a Sinewave type." So, I take it I can't change what type of wave the pcm wants through the memcal tune? I know I have to...

    Info Needed - Vc V6 Speedo Adapter

    Slightly off topic, does the T5 manual transmission use a 2 pulse signal as well? I'm looking to hook one up behind an l67 ecotec. The tacho pulse is different too, yes?

    Well, time for another little update. For starters, I finally finished tearing the wiring loom out of my donor car. I rather like the idea of mounting the under dash fuse box from it into the vc. Secondly, I picked up this little unit, with factory aircon. Had aircon in it from factory, set...

    Well, not much of an update, but I think I've finally decided how I'm going to mount the different bits and pieces in the engine bay and done up a bit of a wiring diagram. Got lucky and was able to borrow a copy of the VS factory service manual (vol 9) off of one of dad's mates. Also, got brand...

    Welp, been a while between updates, but only 'cause I've been in the shed haha. Got plenty of stuff done, but nothing that looks overly impressive in photos. Need to cut a new rad support out of a more modern car, then once I've done that it should just be a case of bolting things in (and...

    Well, fair bit's been done the last month or two. And a lot of nothing too I guess :P To start with I rewired the speaker system. The last guy to hook up a radio (twin shaft cassette player, for an idea of how long ago that was) used all green wire for the speakers and just twisted the wires...

    Are they major problems with the idle? And does getting a tune done differ to having vats removed and manual burnt in? Read a few times that I should have the vss removed when I do this, but I wasn't aware of the different waves. Btw, when you welded up the crossmember for your gearbox, did you...

    Yup, I'm a Viccie. Did a quick google this pic shows, in the upper left, what I mean by extra wire (the blue one is the oil pressure like I thought): When I get a bit closer to done, I'll have to find out if my tacho even works (got it from the wreckers) and if it'll even work with the...

    Allg man, I love stupid/annoying questions. I'm constantly asking them. As for engine, I'm going l67, but putting the T5 behind it, hence the need for machining the flywheel (different counter weights on the manual flywheel/auto flexplate). The wood grain cluster? Bolts straight in the same as...

    Been a while, but spent the last two weekends doing this with my dad and my brother. Will get the flywheel machined soon, and a few other things prettied up in the meantime.

    If the vl mirrors are anything like the vk (I'm to lazy to check) then I think they're pretty much a straight swap and kinda common, lot of people prefer the look.
