The Off Topic Thread.

Technically needs new diff for the conversion.

 

So FG front end re-bush, is it doable in your driveway/garage with a small press?
Wanna do it myself then get an alignment, anyone done the job?

Can your auto not be re-built?

I drive in such a way where any automatic transmission is going to turn to poop. edit: I was constantly changing gears under load, it was never a case of me accelerating after selecting a gear, it was always letting it kick down and always shortshifting when accelerating.

 

the biggest issue is I would need to pick a good clutch and that will cost me a lot of money.

You could always add in some torque reduction so the trans is engaged in the next gear fully, before letting the power back in.

Took the kids to the chocolate factory, Huds was being naughty so I told him I'd throw his chocolate out the window... this resulted in My 3.5year old telling me "mum if you throw the chocolate out the window one more time you're going to time out" with a smart ass smirk on his face...
Showed that little fhhukr .... pretended to throw his chocolate racing car out the window...

Wasn't really going to do it.
I'll eat that sucker later bahahaha

Can Adelaide blokes chuck their kids out the window too? 

 

Mine have been quite obnoxious lately and it vexes me deeply. :ohnoes:

We have bridges and dams in Vic for that.

 

Not sure of the options in S.A. - there maybe a cult you can drop them off to.

There probably is.

 

I reckon I'll keep them for a while yet and put up with it for another couple of decades. 

 

They might be little puffwagons but after all they came out of me so what do you expect?!

I've done it - not all in one go but have done upper & lower control arms and caster rods on both sides, using a smallish home press. No issues, just need the right sized press tools.

Note to self, don't buy a Sony bravia again. 

 

Every morning at 2am for the last 3 nights the wireless component has been switching itself off.
