    Deuce's 02 Deuce

    Clicked over 100000kms today. Work mate tried to take a video of it ticking over while I smoked the rear tyre. But clearly we are better riders than we are videographers. Was hilarious fun to start the day with though.

    I always love hearing about your firebolt. I will love it more when you get the hammer kit for it though

    Gosh, I'm only as old as the swap over from VH to VK models.

    Alternator - will it fit?

    WTF? How old am I? LOL But to add to everything. My head unit displays voltage, and sitting in traffic in the rain waiting to turn a corner with rear demister on (as well as brake lights, headlights, wipers etc) the display drops into low 10v range on display. But 100 extra rpm and it picks up...

    VR brake caliper and rotors upgrade

    I have VT front, VE rear and VZ master/booster - VT fronts = soft stock pedal but easy fit. VE fronts are supposed to feel better, but I heard some adapter brackets were dodgy and breaking. - VE rears just help even up the look. Definitely help stop flatter (rather than nose down) but had...

    Alternator - will it fit?

    1st and 3rd photos look good. 2nd photo not so much. Listing fitment sounds right. As vr is 85amp and vt is internal fan. Some late VS were the only 120amp external fan (what you need as an upgrade)

    Deuce's new daily - 1970 series2a LWB

    I've missed a few updates. So here goes. Got 4 shocks for $3. So hopefully a few rubbers and that's the front sorted. Unfortunately none are appropriate for my rear axle. Pulled the rear corner panel out: Slowly picked the crumbly top seal out. Had to cut a few screw heads off to remove...

    AV8 keeps coming up as unsafe site for me. I just click through past safe zone and browse anyway.

    VR V-8 SS

    Changed radiator caps today. The one that was on it (my spare from years gone by) looks to be leaking past its seal in one small area.

    Cheers for the correction there

    Difference in Colour Engines?? VK

    It was a bit rough digging 14years for that. But to clear it up, greys are older than you say. HQ had the red6 and hz was after that. Less emissions stuff on red, elec ign and better head on blue. EFI on black. When identifying the year of the block, the date code/pour date will advise the year...

    Suspension noise

    Exhaust hitting floor? Or steering rack? Maybe the dampener is stuffed?

    Automotive Porn - read rules in first post

    If I am not mistaken, that blue torana was parked outside my workplace around 5years ago. I did snap a photo at the time. Anyway, auto porn out driving on the weekend:

    Leigh's '81 VH SL/X Project

    In regards to fuel lines, what will be easier to get through your roadworthy check? And are there many other things that you hope to sneak through? With my truck I am trying to do everything as tidy and factory as possible for roadworthy check. So then they don't ask about the power steering...

    Yeap. Definitely easy with alot of stuff. Clearance to guard mounted stuff may be an issue later on though. But I'm oh so close to having steering now:

    Deuce's new daily - 1970 series2a LWB

    Side tracks are in and sealant around the bottom corners (gorilla, clear gutter sealant). Also when I got home in the car last night, I put the 3 steering box metal mount plates on the intake manifold to gentle warm for 2 hours. Then painted them in the cold and got good adhesion and finish from...

    Good call. I've had bad luck with old tanks that have been out of use for a while. Always a leak somewhere.

    Deuce's new daily - 1970 series2a LWB

    Right rear side window is in. And helps make that corner appear more finished. Still need sealant at the bottom and side tracks in. But mostly looking good.

    So far this week: Shaped the steering box mount plate It just needs painting and some longer bolts for the box. Also clearance for steering Removed a fuel hose that was wet, and swollen, and dripping on the ground, and alot NOT like a fuel hose. And lastly I've mounted the lower window...

    Stock 304 crank and rods. Forged dish pistons. Main studs, head studs. Minor port work to the heads. Oil mods, single turbo, single plain manifold and turn up the boost. Good luck against your opponent (but again, what is your partner starting with?)

    Old radiator out, and I've drained half the block. Old core is around 41mm thick vs new rad has roughly a 49mm core.

    Good bye 2nd hand, alloy and rebuilt radiators. Time for a brand new 'police spec' radiator for my V8: ADRAD if anyone is wondering
