I am going to rebuild a red motor and would like to know which is best.
I have heard some say its better to rebuild a 186 than the 202 why is this?

I will be using a yella terra head.
A mild cam Im keeping it auto (Im to lazy to change gears)

Any info would be helpful.

i wanna take that roadworthy tester out the back and *&%^&%^^&

they (batemans auto in werribee victoria) failed my beloved VC commodore wagon for some really stupid and incorrect stuff!

here is an example of things they listed but when i rang vicroads they said those parts should have passed.....

*power wire for sterio running along top inside of the passenger side wheel arch! (not sagging down, not likely to wrap around the wheel...secured safely)

*window rubbers cracked (excuse being that other car's fumes could enter the car!!! bull Sh!t!!!!, the air vents in any car suck in air outside...and other car's fumes as well!!!!!)

*carpet to chassis plastic holder strip thingy not 100% secure on passenger side! (excuse = someone might catch their foot on the carpet and then fall and hit their head........AND AS IF THAT WOULD HAPPEN...ANYWAY ITS A POINT AND LAUGH EVENT!!!!

in other, more straight-forward words, (most)roadworthy inspectors are greedy for your money cause you have to take it back to them and pay again after makin' repairs, and on a power-trip!

B@$T@RD$

(maybe ill calm down soon)'

Mags - Sydney

Heyas,

Looking for a set of mags to put on my HR. I have a set off a torana on it at the moment, but to stop the front ones grinding i had to put some spacers on it, the problem with the spacers is the dont give the nuts enough thread to do up safely... So if you have a set of mags that will go on hassle free then email me at sprucemooose@hotmail....

Cheers

Greg

Windows

Got a problem, I thought the glass for HQ - HZ was the same. The front and rear screens seem okay but the door glass doesn want to fit. Anyone out there got any clues? I'm replacing all the glass......some punks got my car and smashed all the glass among a few other things. '

New Radiator for WB Staesman

Whats the best way of replacing a terminally leaking radiator these days? Recore or replace? Is the external size the same regardless of number of rows? What should I expect to pay? I live in the Manly area of Sydney. Thanks....Matt'

EFI 5.0L

Hello to all my fellow holden drivers out there. Does anyone know where i can pick up an injected 5.0L and possibly computer in perth. I am looking at putting one into my kingswood as it is beginning to get restored. The car goes into the panel beaters in about 5 weeks and so as i am pulling out the motor and all that i might was well put something a little more beefy back in. Any info with names or websites would be most appreciated. Thanks
Matt
