Re: Irish 1987 T25 Transporter Syncro project

I just need to fill out the delivery date :lol: . As far as I'm concerned the day it arrived in the country is the day it drives out on the road for the first time. Emm that's exactly what I did and they told me the exact date the car actually arrived in the country and which boat it came off. They...

Re: Irish 1987 T25 Transporter Syncro project

Yeah I've dealt with revenue in the past, so I'm not worried about them. What bits do you have? I dealt with them in the past as well and two weeks ago. Trust me, its all changed! Went to VRT an '87 UK reg Merc that was in the shed for a year and landed a €1200 back tax and a €720 VRT bill. I could...

Re: Irish 1987 T25 Transporter Syncro project

Hi Conor. Where abouts are you in Ireland? North or South? I have some Syncro bits and pieces I am about to get rid of so you might have first dibbs on them. If you are in the South, I really, really hope you declared the van to the Revenue when you brought it into the country. They have changed the...

Re: 7jx15 rims

I have a 225/70 tyre fitted to a 7 x 15 Merc wheel as a spare and it fits perfectly. Its from a W126 and not a W210 that yours is off so the ET is different at 11 and the rating is enough for a Syncro. I don't know what the W210 rating is

Re: Turbo burning oil?

Your questions indicate that you should do a lot more research into the T3 Syncro before you buy anything. Pretty well everything you need to know is on this forum so I would suggest some careful reading. Also be very careful of the advice offered here, whilst it is offered in good faith, it is not ...

Re: Anti-roll bar function

^^^^^ WHS The anti roll bar is just that and not an anti cross wind bar but as Simon says if you get your geometry correct it will make a difference. However, the T3 has the aerodynamics of a garden shed and garden sheds were not supposed to travel at 60 mph in cross winds. There are some things you...

Re: Syncro identification help, 16" with some 14" or all 16" ?

Why a 16"? making a lot of unnecessary hassle as now you will need to get 16" arms for a start as the ones you have are fooked. Good luck with that!
