Fx master cylinder upgrade on my fx (with hr disk brakes)???

Hey all I'm restoring an fx with the old man. We have just put a hr front end in with a hr diff as well. We are going to run the hr disk brakes on the front and leave the hr drums on the back. We need some advise on how to modify the original master cylinder to a more newer one like on a torana or Hj with a vh44 booster. Is it possible to put a newer master cylinder where the original one sits and still make the original brake pedal work or is there another way to do it that is easier any help much appreciated!!! Cheers Daniel

HT Premier mechanical restoration

All all,

after advice on a Perth/South West WA based company that can perform mechanical and electrical restoration on my 1970 HT Premier.

I bought the car with original Perth Holden dealer sales documents and first registration info and as far as I can see everything is original except paint which was re-done 8 years ago, in original Monza blue with white roof. All original chrome trimming and badges re-attached. Interior is all original and in good condition except for a front seat spring recon required.

Can anyone tell me how to navigate old posts on this site

Rather than ask all questions that have been previously asked before can I search old posts of topics I am after? eg- ej holden door assembly, it has been 2 years since I pulled the inner workings out and wanted some reassurance before I try putting them back together.

My HX problems

Hi, I have a HX Kingswood and I've been working on it for about a year or so to make it my daily driver. All suspension is new and all bushes too, but I took it out the other day to get the wheels aligned and the car was making a loud tapping noise coming from the rocker cover. Also while turning through a round about the car for some reason tried to stall. I did change the manifold and carbi to a 350 Holley with auto choke. If anyone has any info on what could cause my problem I would really appreciate it.
