Well the car finally arrived in Australia and has been delivered to me.
Initial impressions the car is good and worth buying. Ive had my first drive of a Pantera and loved it.
Starting to prep for registration inspection.
Signal switch wouldnt stay engaged -see thread below and fixed
I need to workout why the signals flash fast -when engaging left or right but flash at normal speed when hazard lights on, I suspect the flasher unit may be faulty, it has an EP36 heavy duty flasher fitted, may need to change to a EP35 from research
Speedo doesnt work- Sigh this is teerible...lol. Work through system and find the speedo cable has seized, the right angle broken internally and the shaft that goes into the gearbox has a broken drive tab....nothing left to fail. Im planning on changing to a Speedhut Speedbox which has a small electric motor that drives the stock Speedo and gets the speed from GPS , essentially transforming to GPS speedo. expensive but easier than replacing all those bits.
Does anyone know what the thread is on the end of the speedo cable that joins to the gauge?
Initial bad engine vibration- When I picked the car from the transport people the car had a bad vibration when revving the engine, found one of the exhaust mounts had broken, welded up mount and all sorted.
I was very happy the trans is in great shape, shifts lovely no crunching or whining noises. Has some oil leaks
