HQ 1 tonner Chassis - exactly the same as say HJ? HX or HZ?????

I appreciate that the front sill on the cab of a HQ does not align perfectly with say the bonnet of an HX model because of the styling creases etc...But what about the actual CHASSIS of HQ's and the other models such as HJ? HX? HZ? will the body off an HQ fitt on hte Chassis of the other models and visa-versa????

Cheers

Carby 202 to EFI?

What exactly do you need to convert a standard carby 202 on a VK to EFI (including wiring and sensors, injectors, even airbox etc)? And what would you expect to pay for a complete set up?

I bought the VK thinking it would be better that it was carbied (I've heard people rubbish the EFI versions due to mysterious hard to trace electrical problems etc so thought it better to steer clear), but the fuel economy aint that impressive at all (I'd forgotten how thirsty my old 2dr LJ was, when I first bought the 304 VN it was getting the same economy as the 173!! :D ).

Just wondering what I would be up for.

5 speed modifications

Gidday,
I'm finally looking at fitting a celica/supra 5 speed to my EH ute. I realise that I need to remove the existing crossmember from the gearbox tunnel and cap the ends. What I need to know is how do I go about reinforcing / strengthening the tunnel area when I remove the existing crossmember? Do I need to make up and fit a new crossmember above the floor pan and attach it to the floor and remaining cross member. I know this mod has been done many times but I can't find any info exactly how to fix this. Any advice and help would be greatly appreciated.

G'day
I was wondering if anyone could help I'm trying to get a HR X2 dash gauge. My HR has most of the X2 options but the guy I bought it from helped himself to the dash facia before I got the car from him.
Any help appreciated

BW78 LSD

hey...i currently have a VK diff in my vc commodore and have recently come across a LSD from a fairlane. from what i know, both the vk diff and the ford diffs are both BW 78s. I was wondering what would be involved in changing the center from the fairlane diff over to the VK one. the ratio of the fairlane diff is 3.11 so thats close enough to 3.08 for me. currently im making do with 3.53 or something i think. anyway im mainly interested in finding out if the axle splines are the same, and if not, whats involved in getting it to fit?
thanx for any help

Im having some minor issues with the carby and getting the accelerator hooked up right.

Has anyone here had experience in modifing a HT type mechanical/linkage accelerator to a cable setup suitable for a Varijet/holly350?

also does the webber also use a cable?
