Sorry, was only in Hamilton overnight and anxious to get back to Turangi to do some painting at the non profit. Pics of the car coming. Just got back on line and need to get back to work after lunch.

1989 164

Here's some pics of the 1989 164 Kerry is so kindly letting me use here in NZ until we depart Jan 29.
It's really pretty nice. Looks great. Recent respray looks really good. Its very clean. Drives well except for a couple of issues already mentioned.

Last even, a Christmas festival was help in the town park with a group of Maori (native) youth from the non profit performing a "dance" as can be seen in the pic...sometimes includes being upside down!

Very unusual instrument panel...Speedometer is in MPH, coolant temp in C, oil pressure in bars. I've hear they used to have MPH here instead of KPH.

Canadian sheep shearer

He's a pic of the Canadian sheep shearer from the Gaspesie, Quebec. He says he can shear 200 sheep a day, but that's nothing compared to what shearers here can do. He hopes to refine his technique here.

The fishing is fantastic here in New Zealand...some of the best trout fishing in the world! There is a salmon run up the creek we live on in the fall.

At the backpackers in Hamilton, NZ we also met a girl from Holland who is interning in social work in NZ. 1st time she's been out of Holland This is quite a trip...

Island Bay

Here's Kerry's Alfa parked near the place we're house sitting in Island Bay, Wellington, NZ. It has a great view of the water from the 2 nd floor. Went to the Wellington Market today, Sunday lots of fresh veggies and got fresh fish from this boat.

I want to tighten up the accessory Vee belt on Kerry's 1989 164 3L V6. Anyone know what size sockets I need for the tensioner? If it were a serpentine belt, I know I'd need a 13mm socket and I use a 6" extension, but I've never done a Vee belt one.

Sounds like you are having just a much fun in NZ as we had in IT last March.
We meet lot of nice people both Italians and real foreigners such as young woman from Yokohama, JP we meet in Venice. Small small world we live in my friends.

Looks like no tensioner on V6 with v-belts. You must need to move compressor based on what I see in this diagram.

If 4 cyl you must need to adjust by moving power steering pump and alternator.

We're house sitting in Island Bay, Wellington, NZ atm. It was populated by Italian fisherman and still has several fishing boats, so the 164 feels right at home
