Compression gauge for the home mechanic?

I've finally decided to add a compression gauge to my tool collection. Can anyone suggest a good quality (not too pricey) example suitable for use in all vehicles? Also, where is best to buy them?

Can someone tell me the law

G'day all. Just wondering if anyone knows if crusing around with the uper tail gate open on a panel van is legal or not. I've seen a few people doing it. but knowing my luck and try it i'll be fined or something. My dad tells me in his days when he owned a panel van everyone used to do it but that was 25 years ago. I'm in victoria too so most likely the rule will be different to other states. I'm not sure where to ask about this rule. If i had to ask the RTA i dont exactly live that close to it.
Any infomation on this would be much apprieciated

life changing advise needed

I need some advice on what could be a life changing decision. Thanks in
advance guys.

I've suspected for some time now that my girlfriend has been having an
affair. The usual signs. Phone rings, I answer, someone hangs up. She
started going out 'with the girls' a lot recently although when I ask which
girls it is always "Just some friends from work, you don't know them". I
always look out for her taxi coming home but she always walks down the
drive although I can hear a car setting off. As if she has got out of the car
round the corner. Why? Is it not a taxi? I once picked her mobile up just

no more [Naughty Pottyword] fuel economy......i hope

well the fuel econmomy in the hz should be well and truly sorted out now....after getting a firm figure on the fuel consumption it was time to act....after rejetting it was initially thought that the beast was running lean but the consumption worked out to be 4.4kms a litre....and the motor still had a horrible surge as soon as a steady speed was maintained..after pulling my hair out several times another 2 problems had reared their ugly heads along with the first problem...the metering block had [Naughty Pottyword] it self on my freshly rebuilt 650 holley, the vaccum advance diaphragm also had [Naughty Pottyword] its pants and finally the mechanical advance on the distributor had also decided to seize...so after an hour or 2 of finding another metering block, rejetting it, re-gasketing it, new power valve and fixing the distributor problems...we dropped everything back on the motor and BOOM!

Wanted: HZ Door & Seats

I'm after a roadworthy drivers door for a HZ panel van (preferably, one that's white, but I'll be fine with anything else). Also after bucket seats for the van... something like out of a Caprice would be nice, but any seats that would suit (and again, that are roadworthy) would be great.

Door trims, window winders, all that jazz aren't needed. The ones in my current door are fine but the big rust hole is a bit of a problem!

I'm in Melbourne and can pickup & pay cash. Let me know what you've got and how much you're looking for - photos would be great, too.
