    Icon14 Ah while you are at it....

    I take it you are flying down- if you were going over by the Ferry, there is always "stuff" needing delivery to the island. and a good way of meeting up with locals.

    Good luck with the car.

    I thought the "Stuff" came from Tassie?

    Ken's worried about rising sea levels, so he's trying to lighten the mainland.

    ah, well, we Taswegians already have a considerable history of lightening the collective wallet of the North Island of Australia.

    Actually if these damn winters get much colder, it's more likely that Bass Strait will be lowered in sea level and an ice bridge situation develop and allow the Taswegians to invade Australia during the harsh winter, but then all of us "Mexicans" will have moved North to join all the other Victorians who went North for winter and decided to stay ( years back) (along with all the others, New Zealanders, Poms and other refugees from the far flung nations of earth.

    Once we move of course we will probably erect a wall on the Queensland border not unlike Hadrian's wall in Scotland, if history serves me well that was to keep the warlike tribes in Scotland and not let them out.. sort of like history repeating itself.

    Apparently, it is official policy, that in a war situation, Queensland is expendable.... Also, if you have a look at our tectonic plate, Australia is held in place by the Great Dividing range while the rest of the continent sort of floats. This means that Western Australia could break off and float away

    How awesome would that be?

    I've never visited WA, no intention of doing so. Would be likely to visit ZA first...

    Too late for a remake of Hadrians wall Ken as the canetoad invasion has already spread far beyond our borders. Best you stay down there and build your wall at the Victorian border.

    I am BACK with the mighty CX!!!!! - It is amazing how many things you find are wrong with a car once you have driven it for a day. I managed to destroy what was left of the suspension when my bloody stupid GPS decided I should drive down a FWD track (they lasted a good 50 metres but, then things got nasty). The clutch is almost gone - should get a couple of months out of it and (of course) it has a few electrical niggles. Apart from that, it is a "wee ripper" - a blast to drive. I have just ordered 5 new Lizart spheres from Europe - $390 delivered which aint' bad and, hopefully it should make it through a roadworthy without too much more expense. As soon as I have a chance I will pop it in the shed and check all of the wheel and swing-arm bearings, drop-links, tie rod ends etc. When I can afford it, I will put a set of Hankook tyres on it as discussed in a previous post - the ones on it look like they came from a 5 and dime store. I am one happy camper!

    I am looking forward to seeing the pics! Have you spoken to Stefan Rosier in Bond street Ringwood regarding suitable tyres for it?
    Also there are 6 spheres! Do not forget the brake accumulator sphere on the front left corner of the chassis!
    Cheers Gerry

    Nice! I've never jacked a CX that didn't need "everything" replaced. Did it torque steer at all ? This is the inner tie-rod joints. The tie-rods are different on manual steered cars. Also check the lower ball joint. There were underspec on the '76 models. You'll have to be careful to order in the correct smaller balljoints if they are required too.

    I have no doubts you'll need lower arm bushes, tie rod joints, top ball joints, lower ball joints.... which means top arm bearings while your there for a roadworthy. If your lucky the roadworthy place will put the car on high to check .... that will hide all the slop

    With the clutch you want to order in, engine mounts (your early one may have two lower mounts), spigot bearing, clutch kits, camshaft carrier bearing, intermediate driveshaft bearing, rear main and camshaft seals. You would be crazy not to change the all while your there

    Thanks Shane, some of these things have been changed but, I am going to go all over the car checking everything over the next week or so (depending on work). No torque steer but a bit of play in the steering - about 1 inch. I am only going to do the stuff that is required for the roadworthy at this stage as I need to get it into my name. There is some roller bearing noise at high speeds which I think is coming from the box (may just be the wheel bearings) so, I will rebuild it when I change out the clutch. That is when I will have to decide if I am going to take up your offer and convert the steering. At the moment, I am quite happy with it. I will use the Hankook tyres that have the correct profile as discussed in an earlier post....
