    KE38 Master Cylinder help

    The best way to learn how something works is to pull it apart. But always take note of the order and direction of components sometimes its critical.Even use witness marks I find them helpful. I got my resleaving done on the Southside of Brisbane so no help to you. Go the Google and make some calls it is a pretty standard price that they can quote you over the phone. Good luck.

    KE38 Master Cylinder help

    I had the same unit from my daughters KE55 rebuilt with a stainless sleeve installed and new everything else for $195. It was a 6 hour turn around from when I dropped it off to when I picked it up. Just like a newy and the sleeve will never wear out or so they say.

    First start for a while

    If you don't to waste fuel by putting it in the tank just get a jerry can and put fuel in it then disconnect the incoming fuel line at the filter get a small length of fuel line attach it to the filter and put the other end in your container of fuel and start cranking. Any spray shop can colour match and mix paint for you they also do it at super cheap auto. I had some made up for my daughters rolla at my local paint place and put in a spray can for $25 a go. It was a pretty good match but it was a standard colour.

    Gotta Brag

    Talk about degrees of seperation the house on Sovereign Island was buit by a guy I used to subbie to. I helped wire half of that place. No expense spared. The funny thing was he only had one old series 7 BMW at the time. He built it to sell it.

    Thanks Banjo it is a bit exciting any shed I have ever had ends up getting filled with stuff and I find myself out on the driveway again. There is fixed wireless NBN available and I will be putting my order in next week for it. Hopefully moving in on the weekend.

    Gotta Brag

    Well I don't like to brag but this time I can't help myself. The Garagmahal is finally complete. Just a bit of a shack to store the Princess' rolla and all the family cars with a bit of room for a long overdue work space. No more laying in a gravel driveway swapping a gearbox for me. I am currently in the process of linning it with a bathroom and kitchen as well as living and sleeping quarters. You see fellas this time I got smart, I bought the land, I got the shed before the house so if I run out cash ooops sorry no fancy kitchen instead of too bad not enough coin for a decent shed. We will be living in it until the house is built then its mine to do with as I please. I was even thinking of getting my own project rolla as well as looking after the Princess' KE55 but we will see. #Rollahouse

    You should start a thread on here as a lot of members don't use modern media systems.

    Oh lordy. Its been a while since i price checked the escorts but they have jumped even more. My mates older brother bought a brand new black rs2000 turbo one of 200 i think. It was scary fast and he would drive it on the limit all the time. If it still exists it would be worth some bucks now.
  15. If she has a bent chassis I don't like your chances of them not writing her off. The difference between an non economical write off and a write off is if the car is too expensive to repair compared to its insured value. So 4k for repairs 3k for market value not economical to repair. A write off is when the car cannot be repaired to be safe. The insurance company don't care about classics or sentimental value. Its just business. I have my daughters KE55 insured with Shannons for 7k if it gets written off she gets the car and 7k. It costs me $60 a month and she is a first year green P plater. Fingers crossed for you.
