Put a V8 in EK Holden

Ive got a '62 EK Holden, it's got the HR front end with the Disk brakes & ball joint suspension, is it possible to put a V8 in my EK, and does anything need strengthening, does anyone know what i need to do? I currently have a 186 in it, with a VH commodore 5spd floorshift (it has bucket seets & modified floor pan to fit this). It also has the HR diff. I have been told i would probably need a celica steel gearbox? and a 9inch diff? Can anyone help?

EH Panels and Doors

ATTENTION

If you live in Sydney and have spare panels, eg. front doors, rear doors, front left fender, apron and bonnet. I would like to hear from you, especially if they are in near good nick and have only a little surface rust.

Please help as I need the parts and can afford to spend time going from wreck to wreck in someone's backyard.

Top dollar paid, as well as mucho appreciation.'

A Fair Price?

Can anyone suggest what would be a reasonable / fair price for a one-owner FJ in quite good condition (registered, and close to road-worthy) and which is still used once a week or so?

BRAND NEW MEMBER

HELLO EVERYBODY
My name is matt aka Not-Entered, I would like to know who else is a regular user of this so I can work up some help in my EH Holden Project!

I drive a EH, I live in the Sutherland Shire in Sydney, and I love the old cars. Not just Holdens, I mean Chevs, Valiants, Fords (up till the 60s) anything old, built in Australia and made before the 70's

I wish to hear back from others to meet you all, and I hope to help you out in any way I can!'

Had a small problem with theives lately and one of my problems while taking off the front end to do repairs and to remove the engine I had the bolts sitting in a box. SOME THEIVES USED THE BOX TO CARRY GOODS AWAY FROM MY HOUSE AND....THEY TOOK MY BOLTS!!

Does anyone know if they can get the complete sizes of all the bolts in a list...if someone has that I can at least get them replaced...

poor performing vl

Hi, my 3 litre commy doesn play the game when low reving. Its fine when idling but when driving its a bit jerky(anything below 2 grand). Plugs, leads, dizzy, fuel filter and all that seem to be in order. If you have had this problem or know where to look next any info would be [Naughty Pottyword]hot.
p.s I dont't now if a 14 year old car is classed as a "old holden" yet but i'll throw it out there anyway. cheers.'
