Holley

I just got hold of a 350 Holley of a 192 and i want to put it on my blue 308. It currently has a 600 holley with only the primary's running. I want better economy and the 350 can handle 4500rpm, just wondering if the adapter plate off the 600 will be ok for the 350 and if any other mod's are needed?

Wanted - Seats

Looking for some new seats for my car, HJ Kingswood...
I'm looking for front and rear seats, my fronts are not in terrible condition but if I can source a nice full interior that'd be a lot better than trying to recover them.

Would like either GTS front and rear seats like this or similar:

Or, caprice seats like this (but in black):

Or if anyone has suggestions, please reply here or contact me cm911@optusnet.com.au
Was going to get a pair of recaro's but got screwed over...

Whats the go with electronic dizzy's?

Hello everyone, Does anyone know what the go is with electronic dizzys?
I am going to install a supercharger and have been told that I need an electronic dizzy? Does anyone know if there is one I can buy and throw in there or do I need to adapt the one I have or what about a VK dizzy? will a VK dizzy handle the power needed for the supercharger? I can handle mechanical stuff but when electrics or electronics come in to the picture I just have to throw my hands in the air and scream for help... HELP!

I hope this doesn't look too rice?

Guys,
I just assembled all the gear and took a few snaps. I hope it doesn't look to Ricey? :) Before you ask, NO, I'm not putting a pod filter on it. The blower is just sitting there for the photo's, it won't be installed until the EFi gear is up and running properly.

253 info needed.

Thanks to those that helped diagnose the air problem on my
HZ. It was indeed a head gasket. Which brings me to my next
issue. I have a pair of Pre pollution heads, intake manifold
and carby that I thought I would use instead of the current ones. I am aware of emission laws etc.
Anyway, on the current carby, there is an electric solenoid
that is fitted to vehicles with Auto Trans or aircon. The HZ
has both. The pre pollution carby doesn't have it, and also
doesn't have the holes to screw the existing solenoid into.
The heads,manifold and carby are from a car with an auto (HG).
Both engines are factory except for LPG.

Poll: Should I rebuild my EJ ute or get an EJ wagon ?

I'm getting rid of my car soon and I'm a bit torn on what to do next.
Option 1: Rebuild my ute which is languishing in my back yard, cut out the floor and convert it to auto. Its already got goodies like a warm engine and disc front.
Option 2: Get an auto wagon

Decisions...
