    This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

      The stock wax sender with mechanical movement. A beautiful piece of instrument engineering that I donít want to try and use with the new engine.

      Dismantling the stock and electric VDO 52mm gauge I had kicking around.

      The 1960ís face plate is a direct fit, but the resin board needs to be modified a bit.

        Cheers lads!

        Because I have no access to a pipe bead roller, I bought a couple of o ring fittings from Bunnings, cut them in half and soldered them to the copper heater hard lines to use as a bead.

            I welded up the jaws of a set of vice grips and ground to give the bead shape - was able to get some beads in 5/8"
            brass heater tubing- not perfect but good enough.

              Yep good idea! I havenít had the time to do that though itís on my mind. I get generally a 30-40 minute block of time in which to do things.

                Jason from Broadtune is progressing with the Haltech wiring harness. Note the SpeedDick logo.

                Not much other progress other than me making a dogs breakfast on the exhaust manifolds trying to stick weld stainless. Iíll cover it with some stainless sheet and tig weld it at tafe tomorrow.

                  Someone once asked me if they could use my mower. I said "sure, so long as it doesn't leave my yard"
