a sad story

Hey All,
Just a story i thought you might be able to empathise with (but hopefully havnt got grounds for comparison)

Im just 19 and just over a year ago my grandfather gave me his 1985 VK commodore, i know its 'just a commonwhore' but it was special to me as it was a gift.
i did the regular mods to it, and got some hotdogs put in and a set of vn ss rims, and she was tidy with no rust and straight as a ruler.

The engine had done 350,000 without a rebuild and died shortly after i got her so i got an injected motor and did a conversion and kept the 5 speed (might remeber me, you fella's where really helpfull with some of my questions) and she became a beast.

GTS Monaro / Sandman wheel trim?

Hi guys

I have listed this on ebay, but I am not real sure about one of the trims. Someone told me that one of them is an original GTS Monaro or Sandman wheel trim. These were on my HQ that I owned 10 years ago - and had been fitted by the previous owner.

http://cgi.ebay.com....

IS this right? What are the other trims?

I am not after heaps of money for these (I'll let go of them for $1 if thats what the auction gets to), just having a shed clearing out sale.

new wheel options for HG

OK im sick of those F*cking jelly beans on my HG, time for new rims, now my tyres are pretty new, so im happy to stick with 14x7 (or 14x6)inch wheels so long as the offset and stud pattern fit the hg. was thinking about installing HQ rotors and hubs and having the rear hubs re-drilled to suit HQ stud pattern and buying a set of HQ GTS rims and whacking my tyres on it... what other options do i have? Ive seen a few shops around doing wheel and tyre packages for under $1000 NEW... was thiking i could pick up a set of miscellanious stud pattern rims and have both front and rear hubs redrilled to suit the new pattern, who would do such a job for me and how much would i be looking at?

Spark plug gaps for a dual-fuel Blue 308?

When I last changed the plugs on my Deville, the bloke at Repco advised that I change the plug gap from the standard 1.5mm. After this, she ran better than ever. Now I can't remember exactly what I changed it to. Any ideas? Apart from the gas, she is completely standard.

FOR SALE 308 contact me on 0438253418 Luke

One 308 for sale $4000ono with M21 clutch and bellhouseing
When i bought the motor it had been rebuilt 500kms ago but the guy could not provide the reciepts I had a mechanic mate of mine check the bearings and everything measured up.
This motor will need a electronic fuel pump holley blue i think and a carby, i built the motor for a 800dp. The gear box has been re raced and new bearings with a short shift out of a old monaro i think. The gates are smoothe and positive the best M21 Ive driven. I you want fuel economy this is not the motor for you.

Heads cleaned up by P&P performance wagga and made for use with unleaded.

They are complete, straight, & only one door has minimal surface rust/pitting in a small spot. Check them out.

gearbox tweaking

hi,
i have swapped my gearbox over in my car and was advised to put in a 0.02 inch restrictor in the vaccuum line to the gearbox. where would i get one of these? is the 0.02 the radius or diameter?
how does the restrictor work anyway as it is in a vaccuum line? what is it restricting?
at the moment the gearbox will not drop down a gear, would this be the problem?
thanks
