That's great news Pete. Looking forward to seeing it progress and on the road sometime soon.
I'm guessing you didn't pull it home with the Pulman.  ;)

Very clever, and No I didn't.

I grabbed a Hilux TD SR5 from work for the trip.

Was great to catch up again Pete!

Post some decent photo's when you can - I didn't get a chance to get a photo of it all back together before you left!


Yep was good catch up with a few beers and a good feed. I will take some photo's on the weekend and post them up.

Don't hold your breath. I am flat out at work and won't have to much spare time to put into her for a few months.
I am currently thinking that I will quickly sort the requirements for rego and get her on the road, then worry about the bigger plans later.

Decisions to made  ???

Hi Peter,

Thought a similar thing (here is another one) when I typed the post.

Just yell out if you need a hand with anything.

Hi All

A couple of photo's of the bus when I got her back to Sydney last Sunday after the Paint & Panel was finished.
The car hasn't been used for about 4 years so now begins the task of getting her back on the road.

Tomorrow I will (hopefully  ;) ) sort out the rough running and make a start on fixing the ride heights, currently the nose is about 50mm lower that the tail  :o

Cheers

PB

A quick update

Have fitted the Kings Springs KDFL-04 & KDRS-09 and 260Z 2 seater rear hats.
Also fitted a set of "Rego Friendly" 195/70-14 tyres (these are the standard size) tyres.

The result ? The front is now 8mm or so lower than the rear.

A very pleasing result for height and stance.

Now to sort out the negative camber.

Fun day yesterday

 

I made a start on the rough running and other things for rego, I came up with this initial list

 

- Overhaul and tune carbies

- Fix ehaust manifold leak

- Fix flange gasket leak

- Fix rear main seal leak

- Replace diff strap.

- Replace rack boots

 

I have decided not waste any time or money on the L26 & Auto and instead go straight to L28 Manual & R200 swap.

 

Accordingly pulled out the L26 & Auto yesterday afternoon.

 

This will put rego further away, but, such is life.

 

Cheers

 

PB

(will post a photo or two later)

Hi Rudi.

 

Thanks, I am happy with how it is sitting now, just need to swap the front mounts back to standard.

No I didn't replace the shocks, they seemed OK on a shortish test drive and have no leaks.

 

Cheers

Hopefully will get the L28E out of S130 on the weekend.
