I have a new Brickwerks Syncro tailpipe to replace the rusted out one on the van. Hence I was sniffing around Bentley and Etka for the gasket part number. In the process I see that there are two part numbers for the catalyst, one being marked "AUS".
Is this Australian specific? If so why? Did Australia once lead the world in strict emissions regulations?
Most of the M608 refer to ADR options like seat belts, child restraints, cat, labelling etc.
The radiator was an option for warm countries where ac is likely to be fitted. I don't think that all T3s in Australia had the larger radiator. Some of the early ones didn't. Like most of the options, it just depends on which box was ticked on the order sheet.
A lot of countries have their own unique specifications. The UK appears that nearly anything goes.
I'd like to know whether TriSars were approved for general import or is Hart's just a one off? It must have been an expensive exercise if it had to go through the general import ADR compliance for just one vehicle.
