    Still got my Vic20 in its original box. I upgraded to the Commodore 64 in the mid 80s and the Vic20 was never sold because it was already obsolete then.

    Thanks. I was a bit slow seeing it and they've sold. They condition was quiet average so not really what I'm looking for.

  14. Hi, Is the JB1361 the correct 15/16 master cylinder that will fit on my original 240Z booster. I think it is. Will this work ok with R31 discs on the back and is it the best option for running on std booster? I've put R33 calipers on the front of my car and R31 on the rear. I got an R33 booster and mc and was going to fit it, but have now realised that a bit of work is needed to offset the clutch pedal due to the size of the booster. So I thought I would stick with the smaller 240 booster and original style master cylinder.

    Hadn't noticed the rear hatch. Changing tail light globes or the battery
  16. Congratulations. Starting with a complete car will make the resto easier for you.

    soldering starter brushes

    To answer you question. Yes I have done it. The 100 watt iron will be too small.You do need a very big iron because copper is a great conductor of heat and so the winding takes all the heat away from the location you're trying to solder the brush onto. It's not an easy job. You need a lot of heat fast so you don't overheat the rest of the winding. Tin both surfaces first, then fuse together. I'd say 200-250 watt iron. They're not cheap and so for a one off job not really worth buying one. Perhaps you could borrow an iron from somewhere? Or a nice auto elec could possibly solder the brushes on for you. or find another scrap starter with ok brushes or may perhaps cheaper to just buy another going one.
  18. Hi, I have a hatch lock, but no key. Does someone know how to get the barrel out from the button? Is it possible with these locks? I went to a lockmsith with the lock assembled and they wanted about $80 to rekey it. For that price I' thought I've have a go myself. When I pulled it apart I was expecting the tumblers to be visible so they could be reset them, but this lock is not like that. I have now looked on the web and have read that some locksmiths have said they are a sealed lock and can't be reskeyed. It looks a bit like that, but perhaps there's a trick to getting it apart?

    Wtb: 240 Wiper arms

    New ones would be more than I need. Still chasing some reasonable s/h ones.
  23. So I was swapping over my pedal box in the 240 and I've struck a problem. The one in the car had been modified to suit twin cylinders and I wanted to go back to a single master cylinder. I have gone R33 brakes and so wanted the larger mc and booster. I bought another pedal box and thought it would be a simple swap, but not the case.The steering mount bolts are different. Two bolts instead of four and bolts spaced wider . It also looks longer. I might be able to make it work if I modify the mounts but not sure if it will fit in.. Does someone know what it is and if likely to fit in? Crappy insert has flipped my pic
  24. Thanks. Yes it would need some work. I might have a hunt first for another standard 240 pb before modifying it. That way if I don't like the booster setup I have the option to put the twins back on.
