I can now say that I have have experienced the Syncro Owner "rite of passage".
On Thursday at 3.50 PM I was heading through town to do a coaching session with a new client. I was right opposite the main Coles supermarket in Port Macquarie with traffic everywhere when guess what happened.....the accelerator pedal suddenly went straight to the floor.
I knew enough about our beasts to instantly realise what happened....broken cable. My thoughts drifted to the endless yahoo group posts about the right part number before I regained my senses, put on the hazards and grabbed a guy off the street to help me push it into a vacant parking spot. There it stayed overnight.
I had a spare cable that was in my former T3 so with the kind help of Hart, who did all the dirty work under the vehicle, we put in the new cable on Friday morning and then went off for a nice coffee.
I now feel like a real Syncro owner. Next job, order another back-up cable.
Cheers, Peter from Port
