The radar detector ban has not even had a reading at the Behive yet.
It was only talked about as another measure to reduce the road toll
Or maybe more revenue gathering for our local plod
As to not working 2 years ago Radar Direct with the NZ police tested and proved that they worked(see NZ driver magazine from that era).
This is just another case of Bull Sh%t we get from our powers at be!
Remember the old,If we put your picture on you drivers lience it will take unlienced driver off the road
All that did was cost US more for the lience!!
So guys do not belive people when they say that radars do not work.
By just mentioning this(banning radars)sales dropped off 40% percent.
But here's the beuty of it all.It will still be legal to buy them but not legal to use them
They plan on phasing them out,Say if you have one and get pulled over you will get a small fine on top of you infringement notice,And then say 6 months down the track of the ban the fine will be a lot bigger.
The worst thing here in NZ was the merger of the police and the taffic cop.
All it did was tar the police's good name!
Now Craig please check with your powers at be, before you make a statement like that.
I am not having a dig at you or yours as I would not have your job at all.
We have a top notch police force here in NZ as well as the traffic police but hey should let up on the public motorest.
And if they want a lower road toll one word, EDUCATION!!

Cheers Marty
ps that was my 2 cents worth!

hey mate sorry i have been slack on the replying, haha.
it is actually a common problem with starters on your type of enging, they are very close to the exhaust, especially with extractors, the starter gets bloody hot there and refuses to work efficiently, (heat soaking)
heat wrap the exhaust and make a stainless shroud around the starter.
Also get the local sparky to check out the starter, a burnt armature and or field coils can give a similar fault to that,
is it an aftermarket reduction drive starter??

Were any of those in a wagon? Cause that's Mike's (and I suppose mine too, but of course not for a while) problem, it counts as inside the cabin.

my understanding a dry cell is ok in the cabin

just not a wet cell, if you use a wet cell the box has to be 100% sealed but vented outside

Marty, I agree with you on the radar issue, Whenever I have the radar in the car ive always found Im a lot more alert, and I find I dont drive any faster than when I dont have it, They are a very handy tool to have when you meet a speed camera hiding along a passing lane!

Yes they work, I have a Bel that has been really good over the past 5 years. However they don't do shit when the cop flicks on his radar and nails you straight away. Most cops use this method these days, and that's probably what Craig was talking about...

I have a heat shield and it is a gear reduction starter. It has slowly got worse so Iím guessing the starter needs to be reconditioned?

Bel and valintine are one of the best brands,Yes they do the on/off routine quite a bit,But remember you will pick that up if he is using that on the cars in front of you.Most people get done becouse they think it as just gone off treat each alert as there is a threat to the motoring public.
And black spots nah we do not make much cash there rather be at the bottom of a hill.
Also guys remember it is only reminder of your speed it will not save you if you are waaaaaay over the limit.
Their other excuse is it will stop the boy racers,HUH!!
Most of those guys don't use one,Why would they pay $800- 2.5 k for a radar detector,Dearest one fitted so far was 8.5k it had the blinders fitted as well.
I am not for speeding but most of our high ways(main south)and northen you can do above the limit safely,and in certain conditions that is why EDUCATION is the key!
yeah thats my rant!

Cheers Marty

Thanks for the offer, but I think I'll get it sorted here. I need to be able to drive the car if someone comes to look at it

There really isn't much difference between Holden Commodore and Ford Falcon... other than the Falcon being slightly better build quality

Large stylish rear wheel drive family car with option of a large capacity V8 or large capacity six and most models there is a choice of 6 speed auto and 6 speed manual. This car has average/poor build quality, but is very good value for money

What car am I talking about?








They look the same to me...
