Gemini calipers mount to the other side of the stub alxe and the side the Piazza callipers need to mount is not machined flat.


Hate to be your pads and calipers. Probably chew your discs out too.

I can sort you out with a lower control arm. Do you need just the straight out arm off the cross member or do you need the castor part of the arm as well (the cast bit)??? For a stubaxle you may be able to do a deal with Poida. You can find him on the Ozgemini forum, Username Germinator, he bought i...

The Piazza engine has 8 bolts for the flywheel and geminis use 6, the two auto gearboxes use different torque converteters and flywheels. Different spacing distances and all that.

Not impossible, but not simple.

Boost pressure is an indication of condition. If its stuffed it will let oil through and blow smoke. Has it still got the cable thing connected to the turbo?? It might have stopped working. It could be any number of things or settings. Throttle body, air flow meter, sensors, fuel pressure. Could als...

Have you actually paid for someone to service and tune it??? Could be any number of things. The descrition you just typed out tells me youve got an eye for detail, perhaps you should get under the bonnet yourself. Because the Piazza has a fuel only ECU changing from one fuel to another could well be...

Hes probably not far off.

Its more that as the fuel evapourates, the good stuff gets less in quantity and the crap thats added stays the same. The varnish is just condensed fuel colouring dye.


I have a few bike carbs here that are full of soild red/brown looking crap.

If you go to the wreckers and scour around you will be looking for a KB rode with a sports dash in it. The speedo head looks to be the same as the one in the Analogue Piazza dash and should swap over easy enough. I think you will have lots of fun with the wiring. Any info you will share will be grea...

The owners manual say to run it on 91 RON fuel or better. Most of the carbed Isuzu motor say 89 RON or better. My old man swears by 98. Ive tried it and i think its a crock. I ran the pintara on E10 95 10% ethanol and it did all right. Only used it because it was cheaper by the litre. Only got a car...

Ring vicroads, explain the situation, tell them the mechanic has given up on looking for parts and its making you do it. The car is rare, they can check that on their database. Ask them if you hand the plates in if they can suspend the rego to give you more time to fix it. It is just sitting at the ...
