View Full Version : Brisbane Newbie

Hi all - New Brisbane member . Didn't even know this forum existed until I was searching for info on my noisy diff and discovered you all. Have a 1984 Sprinter all totally stock but getting quite old now, paint fading, engine tired - had her since 1994 and she has 421000 on the clock - bought her with low 100ks and I suspect the engine is still original - oil gets changed every 4000 k's so that has aided the lifespan. Wife always tells me to get a new car if I want but I just love driving the Sprinter too much. Good luck to you all and I will endeavour to get some info on my diff eventually.

If you love it stock, you should really modify it.

Still haven't gotten around to doing photos - taking the Sprinter down to get the diff checked out tomorrow. Have organised to get a new battery mount done next week and decided to clean it all out this arvo - acid has been leaking onto the chassis [ cleaned it all up with Bicarb and hot water] but there is a 10c size section where it has started to eat away the metal. Need to check with the mechanic how bad that is and if it would effect the structural aspect of the car. Always something to keep you worrying.
