Re: Not much safety in a Haflinger

I hope you and your Haflinger recover well. Sounds like you hit the brakes and one locked up at the rear sending you sideways and the roll over. That is one of the things on my list to fix - one of my rear brakes locks and tries to send the vehicle into a slide if it is not corrected quickly. I agre...

Hmmm that is one Ugly vehicle that only a Muther could love - that front end is overdone on the retro bit - too wide.

What is wrong with that? Our public Government buses carry passengers bike the same way.

Re: Power Steering Conversion

Thanks for that write up - extremely comprehensive :D

I have saved this thread in my favourites and I will try to get to a local importer of American cars to see how it is fitted to the Corvette.

I very much appreciate the effort you have gone too.

Re: Power Steering Conversion

Thanks but I do not know what exactly is needed - that is why I was hoping there might have been a "how to" link somewhere.

Re: Power Steering Conversion

Thanks - much appreciated - the Corvette is a rare car here but their are aftermarket parts suppliers for the cars that are here so I might have a chat to them about their steering assist. Our home grown cars of the late 60s had a ram style power steering but they are considered not good enough with...

Re: Power Steering Conversion

I am looking at the Landrover 101 - has a similar steering layout as the Volvo. From your pics it looks as if you have some sort of ram unit with the original steering box still in place. Current power steering options for my vehicle normally removes the steering box and column and replacing it with...

Re: Petronix question

Petronix is very sensitive to the resistance of the coil - the module will burn out. So you need to check the resistance of the coil and any resistors used as a circuit - not individually - make sure this combined resistance is within specs for the unit. On my haflinger I had a wasted spark coil and...

Re: Lost compression to #1, but no clue what the issue is

Thats great to hear :D I am surprised it was that though with a relatively new engine but these happen. I hope you did both cylinders though.

Now go out and enjoy - I just did a 100km drive yesterday out in the country and while slow was a great drive.
