Holley 600

I currently have a 600 holley on my stock blue 308. The problem is it runs rough, and i mean backfires just about every time its started, and it doesnt even have to be cold. I use a manual choke otherwise it would be undriveable, is the carby to big for the motor, does it need a rebuild, do the jets need to be changed or just a tune. It does around 4k/L, if i can't reduce this, bye bye Deville ute, cause i cant afford to run it since i'm 17.

Gearbox for 253???

Hey I was Wondering what sort of gearbox to put in My Vh Commodore. I will be getting a 253 and would love a five-speed in her but I'm wondering if these are hard to find, plus whats actually involved in changing it over. It has an auto in her at the moment so how hard is the conversion? Also do I have to change the standard diff thats in it now? Any help would be much appreciated!

where is the love

wow i just went into a local big chain auto parts store, i wont say which one due to the possibility of a defimation suit, only that they sell parts at super-cheap prices.... anwyay went to the back counter to ask the sales man about some temperature guages they had locked aaway in a case, anyway i arrive at the back of the store and this 16year old rice boy wanna be is sitting head down in a copy of fast fours, i stood there in front of him for the best part of 15 seconds before he even looked up, when he did his greeting was "what doya want" i mean what the [Naughty Pottyword] is that, i go into a store to buy and i get "what doya want"!!!!! so i figure hes prolly just having a bad day, so i say, "hey id like to buy one of those guages" so this is where i get the [Naughty Pottyword]s right, he looks at me and slowly gets off his arss with a "hummph" under his breathe, man i felt bad expecting a sales assistant to assist in making a sale....

x2 carbies

Hi all,
As previuously posted i have an x2 twin carby manifold and am yet to buy the carby's. What I would like to know is can I put this manifold and carby set up on my stock EH with the exixting exhaust manifold? I believe there is a 'hot box' between the original intake manifold and the exhasut manifold which may leak if the original manifold is not used?

Does anyone have any suggestions??

Thanks

COMMODORE V8 RADIATOR

I am looking for a commodore 3-CORE METAL DOWN FLOW RADIATOR. I am told by a radiator repairer this was in the VB-VL V8's, but I am not certain. The radiator repairer also said that models from VN onwards had plastic down flow radiators in them.

Any directions from readers would be welcome.
Obviously I am looking for a MELBOURNE price cheaper than the wreckers.

Please Help

Gentlemen,
I need help or it will be the Dog house for me soon. A few weeks ago I bought myself a HJ 1 tonner to use for work. Its got a Red 202 in it with a 4 speed manual. It starts and goes but I need to get the engine over hauled (burning oil) and a new clutch put in. ( hard to find 1st and shudders when you take off) . I have done what I can re changing spark plugs, oil,filters etc. Can anyone recomend a good garage or person who can look at it and give me a run down of what it needs and how much I need to spend to get it up to a good relaible working order. Once that is done I will need some rsut cut out and it painted too. I live in south west Sydney and will travel within the greater Sydney area to find the right person who cares about old Holdens. Will appreciate any information or advice you can give me. Many thanks .

Factory air

Anyone try retro-fitting GM factory air into a HQ? Is it hard or expensive to get a complete kit, and is it easy to bolt in? I'd fit it and take it to an aircon guy to gas up, check leaks etc.
