Hello Hamish and Michael,
Thanks for helping.
Unfortunately we really need to see a vehicle in Melbourne.
Hamish seeing you’re in the Syncro know here in Australia I don’t suppose you know of a vehicle down here in Melbourne that we could get to keysborough.
Thanks for any assistance.

I'm forwarding your email to Andrew Sanders, the export manager for Pedders Suspension.
He can organise one of the local stores to have a look at your Syncro T3 just to get some numbers from it.
Would that be ok?
Sorry for the delay in replying.
No... I'm in England.
The Seikel springs are about twice the spring rate of standard so if you're happy with mega stiff suspension for on the road, they're probably very good.
For off-roading... they're a bit too stiff and don't give good suspension movement. This is just my opinion from having driven on them and other springs.
Pedders are interested in producing springs for the Syncro T3 but they don't have a vehicle to look at.

Are you in Australia?
What's your telephone - it would be easier to chat.
I previously had seikel springs and old man emu nitro chargers. Those front springs were awesome - the rear was good but did sag over the 10 years I had them
About 6 months ago I installed fox shocks with remote adjustment from go westy.
The go westy springs are supposed to be progressive spring rate. I personally find them round town too soft and as a result too much body role.
I am interested in getting stronger rear springs in the rear if I proceed with installing the heavy VR6.
I live in mackay North Qld.
Some times I'm in Brisbane / Bribie island at my holiday home.

How are your Syncros?
I wondered if you might be able to help me out.
I work for Pedders Suspension... in fact I run the European version of the company and I'm trying to get Pedders Australia interested in developing suspension for the T3 Syncro.
The problem is that they've never seen one!
The head office is in Keysborough, Victoria.
I've no idea where you are in Australia but are you within strikiing distance and if not, do you know anyone with a T3 Syncro that is that would be interested in letting Pedders head office have a look over a standard Syncro van for a few days?
It's a big ask so no problems if not.

I usually have the van on ramps at the back and will put the engine and gearbox on a low profile trolley of some kind. An old skate board does this well but you have to stabilise it when sliding everything underneath. Have a few mates to help this.
Once under, you can lower the van and use a hoist or engine bay lifting bar to lift it into position.

Knew I could count on you!
I'm guessing you have you car raised heigh enough to allow a engine to slide on in there....and then you lift the motor up with a engine crane.
Do to have access to a car hoist? Or is there a trick I'm missing. I personally find the cast iron vr6 bloody heavy. I'm worried that I can't get my Syncro shell safely heigh enough to be able to slide the motor in on a trolley jack bellow with it sitting up right on the jack. I'm also concerned that that set up will be unstable.
What I have seen is like the photo attached where wheels were bolted to the front gear box mounts and I guess a trolley jack could be placed smartly onto say a rear crossmember to allow the gearbox/ motor coupled assembly to be rolled as close as possible to the ground in under neath the van. I guess then the engine crane you speak of could be used to then lid it all up thru the engine lid. In this instance the car rear Tyres could be up on basic ramps.

I would consider renting an engine crane when you are ready to fit it. Either that or have it sitting ready and lower the van over it.

Hamish here from Australia,
I've purchased a 2008 r32.
I'd like your advice... I'm wondering how to get the engine in the car... Do you install your upright motors thru the top with a mobile crane or from under neath?
I'm doing it at home and all I have is steel ramps for the rear Tyres and I trolley jack.
I'm a bit worried engine must go thru engine lid and that means I will need a mobile engine crane.
Is that the case?
