Stereo In a VC with GAS

I would like to put two 12" subs and two amps in the boot of my VC. Now normally I would put it against the back seat but I have a Gas tank in there.

Does any one have an idea on what i can do or can you suggest websites of people who have installed stereos into a Vb-VL commodore?

202 blue mods - VC commodore

I have a 202 blue mtr in my VC commodore wagon. The body is straight and in good condition and i really like the car (also some sentemental value).

The standard 202 is just not enough for me though but i dont want to dump in a 308 or 253, i just want to juice up the 202.

I have heard of people using turbos etc but how much boost will a blue in good condition take and should i get bigger valves and a mild cam????? what other stuff can i do to hit around 150KW mark if that is possible????? am i dreaming on that one???

Can a 202 fit?

Hi everyone,just a quick question that Im sure is easy to answer and I feel kind of dumb asking it. Can you swap a 186 for 202 in a HG with a trimatic without any hassles, ie bell housing or input shaft problems?

Richard.

New Motor For My HG Sedan

Ive been hunting around for a new motor for my HG currently in it I have a 3.3 (202) Red With extractors and LPG conversion. My mechanic says there is a carbon build up under one of the valves which corse it to play up a once in a while. This most of the time happens when I'm sitting at the lights and when I move off (feels like when you have petrol and gas mix together). The LPG has only been on it for 2 months so it can be anything to do with that, + I bought the car from the wreckers for $450 and fully restored/sprayed it after $4 - $5,000.

Speedo Problems, HZ Speedo in a HZ

Hi Everyone,

My 1971 HQ has a HZ dash in it, but the speedo is giving incorrect readings. At first this might have been because of a different diff. ratio, but once I got the correct' speedo gear it was still reading incorrectly. It's reading under the road speed, ie, when I'm doing 110kmh (checked with my friends GPS), the speedo is reading 80k's, when I'm doing 80 it's around 60.
Any ideas what might be wrong? Is there any difference between the pre metric speedo drives to the metric speedo's out of the HZ's?

ALSO, my swaybar has an unfortunate habit of ripping out the shackle bolts and the thread from in the chassis. Does anyone have a solution to this problem that doesn't involve cutting the chassis open, or getting rid of the sway bar? Is there some way or strengthening the chassis in that area that works?

Thanks'

New to the list

Gday everyone, my name is Milton Watkins and I live with my wife and two small children in Ballarat Victoria, I have just bought off my uncle, my aunties HD Holden Premier Sedan for the lowly some of $500.00 and it is in RWC. This car was purchased new in 1965 by my grandmothers sister, she handed it down to her two daughters during the following 17 years, then my aunty bought it in 1982 for $300.00 when she got her licence at 50 years of age, she placed a new 186 and new automatic transmission in it and then had the rust cut out and resprayed its (I believe) original gun metal grey colour, she drove it twice a week less than 30 kilometers and was always garaged, she had it serviced every six months by a local 70 year old mechanic. The interior is all original an in nearly perfect condition and it still has its original number plates, so its been in the family since new.

Now the paint work is suffering as it was always washed but never polished and I believe this caused some fading on the roof, bonnet and boot lid, and it has some rust forming at the bottom of the doors and the boot lid where I beleive I am missing a moulded strip at the bottom, I am unsure of this as I still havnt seen a picture of a HD prem at the back to see what I am missing to cover up this rust for now till I get the rust cut out again and have it resprayed for a second time.

Milt.
