Re: Pinz at the Drag Strip

A funny car with a 101 shell :evil:... only a total of around 2600 101s made Not a funny car with a 101 shell - is a proper 101 with a bigger engine (I think a Chev 350 but not sure) running on gas and with the front drive shaft connected. The vehicle is fully road legal and after the event he driv...

Re: inspiring Haflinger related DVD on eBay from Australia

You may be right - it was over 30 years ago that I last saw it - definitely was a Haffie and not a Mule - someone has suggested I may be getting confused with Malcolm Douglas and his doco called "Follow the Sun" where apparently he also used a Haffie. As I said it was a long time ago and I am now ge...

Re: inspiring Haflinger related DVD on eBay from Australia

I just viewed the Call of the Wild - was actually a different movie than I thought it was - made later and their swimming in the lake etc would be a bit of a worry with all the crocs. It brought back a few memories as I had been to all the places shown on the Cape - I had worked on Australian Patrol...

Re: inspiring Haflinger related DVD on eBay from Australia

What was probably missing in that video were the crocs. At that time they had virtually been wiped out. I was working in that part of the world at about the time the video was made and you could safely swim in the rivers and sea (the sharks are not a worry) but since crocs have been protected that s...

Re: Muffler (Silencer) Alternatives

I ended up searching all the local bike wreckers and exhaust places and did not find anything that could easily be adapted. Also there does not seem to be a standard alternative to the original muffler so I ended up getting an original.

Re: Cobaw State Forest, Victoria, AUSTRALIA.

Nice vehicle Peter - the Simex tyres look the goods with those side biters - I was considering those for my Landie 101 but decided the go for BFG MT KM2s. My main concern with the Simex was their onroad grip/wear etc. How have you found them. I have been away in my 101 with some 4x4 Pinzgauers where...

Muffler (Silencer) Alternatives

My Haffie has a motorcycle muffler that comes out the front of the rear wheel. This does not meet roadworthy requirements and will have to be changed. http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e334/gazzz21/Forum%20Posts%20Album/PA040148.jpg I believe I will be able to source new Haflinger muffler from the U...

Re: Unleaded Fuel

I am having my Hafy rebuilt with new rings and BMW valves. I would assume that if the valves are stalite and made for unleded gas I should be fine. Stock valves on the otherhand should probably have the additive added. It is not the valves that are the problem - it is the material that the valve se...

Re: Unleaded Fuel

Of course most engines designed in the 50s and 60s were designed to have lead in them but when unleaded came in the general rule of thumb was that if the engine had alloy heads they could run on unleaded as alloy was too soft for valve seats so hardened valved were used as standard whereas cast stee...

Re: Unleaded Fuel

Bump on this thread.

Sorry for resurrecting an old thread but this is what came up in search.

I also have just bought a Haflinger and would like to know if it is OK on straight unleaded fuel or do I need to add upper cylinder lubricant.

Thanks
