Yep I am a fan of a UK engine. At those prices.
But like buying any engine. It's a bit like Russion Roulette
You don't know what your going to get.

Which mags did we go for ::)

You'd have to wonder too - if they had an engine they were a bit dubious of, would they see an order from Aus and think - "well they aren't going to bring it back"  :-\

That is true but if I went to reputable business  you would think they would do the right thing.

You would certainly hope so. As Mavro says, there's always some element of risk anyway.

I bought a motor a couple of years ago for a small work truck. Paid a mechanic to put it in and it was never any good. Drove it for about 500km before it had to come off the road. Mechanic blamed the builder, Builder blamed the mechanic. To and fro for months with the end result that I ended up with a very expensive garden ornament and no truck. It may as well have come from the UK for all the comeback I had  >:(

Hi guys
New wheels are on really happy with them make the Moke look so much different.
I also changed the front disc pad for 2 reasons the one that were in there were squealing and the other reason was that they dusted really bad and they would destroy my new wheels so replaced
With green stuff pad but these are the black ones..

Hi all thanks for the comments
yes the wheels just give the Moke that street look.

I washed the Moke today not the easiest car to clean however it came up well,
The wife and I took the Moke to Fremantle  for some lunch ,Moke went well I feel
that the Moke drives even better with the new wheels, but they do stick out a fair bit
Does anyone have any ideas for some wider guards be it rubber metal any ideas would be good
Picures as well.

Hi JM
How far do they stick out ?
I calulated it should be about 15 mm am I right ?
I would just keep driving it that way

Bad news I'm afraid, got home from work to find a traffic infringement notice saying I had to pay
$100 dollars for not handing in my plates, I'm like what,Moke has been unlicensed since June
Had no idea I have 5 licenses and somehow this 1 got thru it does not help that we don't have rego
Stickers anymore.
This is such a pain in the arse I have to remove back seats and seat belts and change the wheels
Anyway I have booked in for next Friday so hopefully it goes over again as I do not want to miss
Out on INMD not happy  >:( >:(

Hi JM,

What a pain! :( I think the no stickers has caught a lot of people out. Can't see how it saves money either as they still have to send you a receipt! Trucks are worse - even a day late they have to be inspected again at $150. :o At least they still get stickers though.

Have you got a set of wheels to use? I can lend you some if you need them.


Cheers, MD.

Here in NSW, we still have stickers, but they're being abolished from January 1 2013.

As someone who has been booked in the past for not displaying a current sticker (plus an extra fine for displaying an expired sticker  ::)  >:( ) I thought it was a good idea, but the general feeling I hear from SA and WA people is that they hate it.

Looks like I'll still get booked, just on a different charge  :(

Newie,
hate may be a big word..
but, the sticker gives you a reminder..
normally they send you a letter saying it's due on ... date..
But if they don sent it and you forget...tadaaaa...your up sh!t creek..and you gott pay.

I heard on the grape vine that the stickers may be coming back in SA.
coz lots of people are forgetting
