308 HEADS

Hi guys,

I have a pair of 308 cylinder heads which I cant find out exactly what they are.
They are off a 308 black motor they've got L34 size valves, a "B" raised up on the end of each head and have HDT stamped on one of the corners on each head.

If anyone has an idea on what they exactly are I like to hear from you

Thanx HELLVK!

Hot babe in HK Monaro?!

Ok guy's, so last night out on the town i was just walking with the boys and this chick stopped me and started chatting away. My mates looked at me and kept on walking. Anyway this chick is really, really, really hot (the hottest of hot). We sat there chatting the night away for about 3 hours!, then she decided she wanted to take me for a drive. So we were walking to her car (i diddn't know what it was at this stage) i was expecting you know like a laser or a berlina or meteor or something like that.

HJ rust bucket

I have a HJ wagon rust bucket, I was going to use it as a first project car but I am having second thoughts as there is rust bubbles (i think?) on the underside of the roof you can feel by pressing on the roof linning and there is rust holes on every pannel and door (easily replacable) but at the base of the front window there is a rather large amount of rust including a hole the size of a golf ball ! if i strip the paint i feel there will be alot more. Would it be a better idea getting a HQ 2 door rolling shell that has already been painted (or ready to be painted) and putting most of the good mechanical parts from the HJ on it untill I can afford to replace each part ? i know its more expensive then just buying one that has it all done to it already but then that would be taking the fun out of it ;) and i wouldn't feel that it was MINE.

New 350 powerplant

I'm replacing the small block in my trusty HZ ute. Been looking at these 350ci, 330hp Vortec crate motors that are currently available. Has anyone got any feedback good or bad reports on these motors? They are brand new from GM Performance in the US of A and imported and sold by a couple of companies here and seem pretty good value to me. Interested to hear others comments from your experience.
Thanks

Removing Air Conditioning From VK Berlina

Hey ..

I have a VK Berlina i was wanting to remove the air conditioning from, and replace with the standard heater box setup from an earlier VH.

Removing the assembly/pump is straight forward, but the holes left in the firewall, and hole needing to be cut in the top of it, for cool air intake on the heater box are worrying :P

Can i get away with welding in a plate and sealing it, and cutting a hole in place for the air intake on the heater box without an engineers certificate ?

Cheers

LX vacuum hoses at carby - which goes where?

Hi people,
I've been working on a friend's recently acquired 2850 LX SL sedan.
It seems to have problems with pinging, usually at highway cruise.
All appears bone stock. It has EGR, something that the Ellery manual I bought does not show at all.
To reduce the ping, the timing has to be retarded a lot from the spec setting (3deg advance, if I remember the sticker in the bonnet).
I am trying to find out which of the three vacuum ports the three vacuum hoses attach to on the base of the carby. There is a hose to the EGR diaphragm, one to the charcoal canister, and one to the TVS type thing at the thermostat.

Holden Cruze putting on driving lights

5 door sedan/wagon type body. I am trying to hook up a set of Narva Driving Lights to the front of my Holden Cruze which is really an AWD Suzuki Ignis with a slightly bigger engine. I have hooked the relay to earth, to power at the battery, to each lamp which are indiviually grounded and then I have wired the relay back to switch then out to the High Beam wire on the back of the Headlamps. The problem comes in that the HB wire on the back of the HL's is constantly powered and the Driving Lights are on even when the headlights are off. This is a frustrating problem as the lights should only com
