Long shot: Olbis injection for a grey

Post by Harv »

This is probably a really, really long shot, though you can only try.

I'm interested in getting my hands on a set of Olbis injection to suit a grey. Happy also to look at part setups. There must be at least one survivor out there. I've had a play with a Howarth set and done the writeup (http://www.fbekholden.com/forum/viewtop ... 25&t=21645). I'm now keen to do a similar thing with an Olbis set. Happy to buy a set, or borrow it from the owner.

I know this stuff is rare as rocking horse poo... would be willing to trade for twins/triples or a Norman, with cash adjustment either way.

Over the last few years I have seen some limited photos of Olbis injection (albeit on a red) on Jeff Burnett's Alki-Burner FJ gasser. Closest I have come was a set owned by 4hammers in Tasmania. It sold long ago. Spoke to 4hammers (an interesting hunt in itself), and sadly he cant remember who he sold it to.

Cheers,
Harv

My research into Olbis is starting to bear some fruit. If anyone is interested, I'll post the info here:
