« Last post by alanm on Today at 08:02:13 AM »
Hi Shane, I don't think I can reply to your post because its in Buy/sell section.
You can get a new tank for a resononable price from OKP Alfa part Germany.
I have bought parts from them before - reliable and reasonable delivery costs.
Cheers, al.

Today it is raining in Melbourne.  I can tell you the wet weather grip of the Eagle F1s is phenomenal.  I find I am uncharacteristically driving my 159 much harder with the new rubber (because I can) and the rain makes no difference.  Very different to the PZero Neros.

Had the new 245/40 19 Conti Sport Contact 6s fitted at JAX Tyres, Preston this afternoon.
Of course a quieter and more compliant ride was immediately noticeable and after a quick sprint on the Eastern Fwy in the rain I could tell the Contis were more sure footed than the Pirellis ever wear. Unsure why? Perhaps more recent technology, a different groove pattern, the Conti reputation for wet weather performance, a different rubber compound or all of the above?

$885 for x4 incl. fitting.

What I'm most interested in now is how well these will wear in comparison to the Pirellis.

Stay tuned! I'll be back in a year or two!

I should have asked what suspension the car has in it.  Mine has 29 mm front bars matching rear springs and revalved Konis plus a twin spark box and a 3.2 engine

Can anyone advise where I could find a pair of nylon pulleys ( window winder wire runners)?
I would prefer to buy new ones but good used ones will do.
Thanks

a search found a dry weight of 170 kg's dry for the 3lt  but it does not say if the engine has any ancillaries added
The transaxle I weighed myself it was dry with no clutch housing flywheel or pressure plate 49kg's

Following a restoration project, I've just registered my 1968 GT 1300 Junior in Victoria without bumpers. No comment was made on the absence of bumpers by the roadworthy guy or by the VicRoads inspector.

Before turning up for my registration inspection, I did read up on bumper requirements on the VicRoads website. The only references I could find is that bumpers have to be safe with no sharp protrusions. There is no mention at all as to the legality of removing bumpers. I assume, so long as removing bumpers does not uncover any sharp body protrusions, then there should not be a problem.

Also, I dropped into Shannons in Melbourne to update and adjust my insurance coverage. They asked if I was going to fit bumpers to the car, but they were fine with it when I said that I would not be fitting them.

GeeTV, not sure how accurate this is but I have checked my speedo against a mobile phone GPS-based app, and my speedo reading is typically 3-5kmh higher than actual speed. I've got 205/55/R15s on my GTV. 

Steering is fairly heavy in mine at parking speed, but I just put that down to the fact there is no power steering, and I have a small diameter steering wheel fitted. Otherwise handles fine, except feels a bit skittish in the wet because I am due for new tyres - bit like driving on semi-slicks at the moment.
