Gearbox Problems

On the 30/10/04 there was a post about a person having problems with their trimatic (AKA DRAMATIC). Two heads and Dnar replied talking about a vacum hose and a modulator being most commonly related to a box that doesnt shift out of first gear to second or third.

I jacked up the tonner and had a look a few minutes ago and realised that i know nothing about either a modulator nor what the f*ck a vacum hose is. Is there any pics, or any info that could help me with this one?

Turbo 400 kickdown

Hi all,

I have a T400 in my HZ Premier, it changes well, engages straight away, oil is good colour and level, but one thing has me concerned. It seems to be very reluctant to kickdown when the car is under a load that would be sufficient I would think for the car to kickdown to 2nd. For example climbing a steepish hill at 50kph (the speed zone), it wants to hold 3rd all the way up, I actually move the lever to 2nd manually as the car is under a bit too much load I think. What would cuse this, or is the T400 just like that? I had a WB series 1 DeVille with a T350 tranny and it seemed to be similar, however Trimatics I have had in the past kickdown pretty readily when the going gets a little tough. Any comments would be appreciated?

Diff ratio change

Hi All,
I would like to change the diff in my WB Stato from a 2.6 LSD to a 3.08 LSD. The LSD centre i have is still quite good (tight) and was thinking of either getting a new set of gears for my diff and pay someone to fit them or find a complete diff with the right ratio and change centre over myself.

Can i have some suggestions on which way i should proceed?
I`m in Melbourne.

Cheers,
Kris.

For Sale - Statesman Lower Grille

Hello all!

I have for sale a Statesman Lower Grille, which I assume fits HJ, HX or HZ. As far as I can tell, it has never been on a car, and it has never been painted. The chrome is in excellent condition, and all the clips holding it on are intact. All of the bolt holes are unbroken as well. There are a few minor little scratches from many years of un-boxed storage, but I think this is about 90-95% perfect. I am asking $150 for it.

If you have any questions or would like photos, please post your e-mail address, although my camera is not great. I am in Melbourne, and would prefer for it to be picked up, as I am not game enough to put this in the post!
