The less good news is that there's a little more slop in in the output shaft fit up than we're comfortable with, our box has the same 27 spline shaft as the 10 bolt pinion, the Greek is Turbo 400 size...they weren't meant to be lovers......



Did you ever notice that mating up this tuff is akin to putting on a puppet show with marionettes actuated by rubber bands?

Comments on Greek Couplers as lovers----I bought a non-broached one from Mark Williams broached it sent it back to them for heat treatment--no extra cost other than the shipping all 3 ways.  I don't know about the kissing part but they mate up just fine!  grin

It's unusual to have a big Cyclone build in the southern ocean like that, looks like the eye is headed right at Adelaide, hang on to your hats guys!! It's likely to pull a lot of rain up to Lake Gairdner too.

It's been awfully quiet on this thread.

I suspect the work on the Spirit of Sunshine is so intense that there is no time for posting.    rolleyes

Ha! I was having a beer with Nicky the guitar player just a week ago, lovely fella, all good people there. Graham Thomas the bass player ain't well though. It's a great song, Mark Ferrie has been in the house band of a very successful live TV show Rock Whiz for years now. He plays a bass made by my pal and neighbour Anthony at Harvester Guitars (Harvester as in Sunshine Harvester, like Spirit of Sunshine)....the world ain't that big....

It has rained, and rained, and rained. I've seen more rain but I don't remember it ever raining so persistently.

If Gairdner.has had a "wash-on" like 06 it'll be buggered for a few years.

Like it really matters who's running this thing, it's like shoving a new set of points in a bad engine, it might sound a little different but it still needs an engine.

I saw this somewhere and kept a copy of it because it is so relevant to politicians and politics in general.

A couple of years ago when I was in the USA, Australia had just held elections. and they were close. for the whole three weeks I was in the USA they hadn't finished counting
In the end Juilia Gillard's Labour Party (left side of politics)( and yes, that's how we spell Labor here)  formed a minority government and ousted Tony Abbott's Liberal party (right wing guys)
the disappointing thing for me was that Peter Costello had just retired and wouldn't be running in Tony Abbott's Liberal party.
I hope you can all see where this is going

Now ask me about my God parents


Anyway, I was hoping to sell a whole lot of junk I had on ebay to help with finance going forward
So I Guess I'll be heading to the tip (dump) with a whole lot of stuff, although the Offenhouser manifold may go on the garage wall

Grumm, some car clubs have swap meets.  Set up your parts pile there and put a sign up saying "everything free after 3:00"  It helps boost sales.  Also, it is a guarantee you will go home without the junk, most of the time.
