Attention JUNKYARD

Hey Junkyard, you had a post a few months ago with some parts you were keen to sell. Wondering if you got any bumpers to suit HJ/X/Z that are straight and decent?

cheers

WB ute chasis - can it be used for a replica / hotrod base?

Hi guys

I have a spare WB ute (parts ute) which I will strip - the body is in terrible condition so I wouldn't even try to restore it. I was wondering if anyone has heard of the chassis being used in a replica (cobra?) or hotrod style custom car. I have always wanted to build a custom, and thought while I have this ute, maybe I could start there.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. If it is too big a job I won't bother even starting.

cheers,
Brett

Shims under rockers

Hi All,
I recently bought and replaced my cylinder heads on my 308 with reco LPG/ULP ones (last weekend). I also noticed they have been shaved but not sure how much has been taken off them but guessing somewhere like 40 thou.
The motor also has a Torkmaster 2 billet cam and a multifit manifold.

The motor seems to run fine but i`m a little bit concerned that i may eventually burn the valves out if there isn`t enough "give" in the lifter.

My questions are, do i need to put shims under the rocker pedastals to compensate for the machined heads?
If so what thickness shims should i put in and where can i buy them? How can i check if i even need to do this?

Engine and Tranny rebuild

Hi again, well the HK was my dads first car, lost it in an accident back in the day which is how i ended up with mine to restore. Anyway, He couldn't take me having one and him not so he went out and bought one of his own. He wants it to be killer quality and is going to get the transmission and engine (high compression 161 - what he had back in teh day) rebuilt, restored, re-enambled, decaled, everything. Anyone know a good place in melbourne or its surrounds that do engine and tranny rebuilds and enamaling? any idea on the cost? Cheers everyone

3 on the Tree

Hi everyone,
I've been having a bit of trouble lately trying to hunt down a set of gear linkages. The previous owner of my HK was a fool and changed teh 3 on the tree over to a floor shifter and never kept the original linkages. The car is a 69 model with a hydraulic clutch but it seems everytime I come across a set of linkages they are different to the set I need. I heard that 2 different types of linkages were made for the HK's. I guess I have the less common one. Anyone have any ideas?
