You mean @Deuce ?
Wired in my wideband into the ECU (D8) so that it can datalog with all the other engine info.
Got the intank fuel line connected with the help of some long pliers and a piece of scrap steel rod. New fuel pump installed. Added 20lts fresh fuel. Fired up first time after bridging the pump relay to prime the system.
Ordered belt and pulleys.Hope to get rid of the squeal.
Where did you get the rubbers?Mine need doing. Seems to be some price variation.
Paid $365 for one year rego
Paid $410 for one year CTP
Paid $334 for 10 year LPG system inspection (tank removal and refit, RWC)
Paid $62 for 62 litres of LPG.
Bridged some faulty connectors in the subwoofer control panel
After three months off the road while waiting for me to find, install and program a replacement LPG ECU, it's nice to be back on the road. (The Bluebird did well in the interim.)
Got an email from Auspost saying parts are delayed due to flooding.
Anyone know where to get reasonable condition door belts for VR sedan.
Thats the ones that seal to the glass.
The rubbers on mine have gone rock
hard and are scratching the glass.
Rare Spares don’t sell them.
Was thinking of cutting off the rubber and gluing on flat rubber strips from
Not sure if that would work.
Also tried wreckers but the sun has taken its toll on all the ones there.
Search for Bailey channel rubbers, found them on eBay, Repco might have them too
Replaced the indicator stalk, no more manual centring woot
Thanks for that Ephect.
What I meant was the horizontal trim on the outside of the doors that seals to the glass.
They are known as door belts.
Just waxed the ute in under 30mins. Awesome gear, makes waxing the ute 10x easier than pulling out the buffer and lambswool pad. I found it even takes off the bug **** so you don't have to wash the bus before applying the wax. Recommended that you use fully slick as well every second wash to keep the water beading. Wished I had bought the fully slick gear as well when SCA had the 40% off Bowdens the other week.
try the indoor wrecker for a decent set try the stato ones as they tend to be of better quality or spent less time in the elements..If the rubber isn't to bad and you can find wintergreen oil, mix it with alcohol (google for correct mixture ratio)
soak the rubber in that for a day or so will return then to almost new ..
WOW - Thanks Wozza.
I will try the wintergreen oil.
I have been searching for several years to fix those on my SS.
Also I hadn’t thought of an indoor wrecker.
she passed her annual inspection or rego check is what we call it here in nsw
Belt and pullies arrived in Tuesday's mail. Will return them tomorrow, because I ordered VT! Aged moment.
Entering the ute in a best ute contest at our rural show tomorrow. There is about three categories. I doubt i will be placed but thought ahhh good to support the Rural Youth Club. Only five bucks to enter. So gave it a wash and its come up looking ok. When it dries I'm going to lazy wax the front bumper and bar. Hopefully that should help the insects to not stick as much as they currently do. Have rarely waxed the bumper due to it being hard to polish the wax off. But the pump bottle gear i may not even towel yet, depending on how it comes up.
How so ?
The loop alloy bulbar makes it really hard to get your hands in behind to give it a really good buff with the machine or even polishing towel.
I'd still wax where I could reach.
