Fresh WOF yesterday, so I can use it over summer! :-D

Also replaced one of the headlights the other day, and will do the second one soonish. Vast difference.

And was hauling some wheels/tyres around yesterday in it.

Changing tyres around for WOF time, and measuring spare and ute tyres, vs what's on it: https://twitter.com/FredCookeNZ/status/ ... 7177984000

Intent is to use the ones I had on the front of the ute for towing as rears with their larger diameter, and get some wider fresh fronts of about the same height as the crap that's on it. Probably bad geometrically, and will make me speed more, but...

Finally got around to installing the second good headlight from Yoshi:

The ignition miss on this got so bad that it was getting difficult to drive. So I had a crack at insulating the exterior of the coil to prevent arcing. When reviewing in the dark to see if it worked, the answer was: No. And when looking around the engine bay, holy shit, arcing the entire length of the leads. I see.

New leads, better/more correct lengths. New plugs, correct heat range (was running cold 7 NGKs and is now running correct hotter 6 v-groove NGKs). Totally transformed.

Drove it around all day today, love it! :-)

However:

Rear clunk has been getting worse. So I'll need to look into that before too long.

Car also has a bit of wander to it, like toe out, or low tyre pressure. I suspect the diff is floating around in the back of the car like it's luggage in a slalom. Time will tell.

Glad to see that this ignition miss trouble wasn't code related, but "arcing the entire length"! :o

Excellent it's worked out and showing vast improvement.

Still not a fan of the Bosch code that runs this thing, but all in good time! :-)
