recently bought an hq premier which has been mis-firing ever since. was told that the carby is f*cked, mixture being too rich or sumthing. would it be advisable to just purchase a holley n manifold? (which would be round how much?) or get it fixed up? (i was quoted bout $360 juz to get it repaired)

179 Engine

Hi all,
I am looking for a 179HP block/engine. Not too fussy about the condition as I plan to totally rebuild it. Can anyone give me an indication what I should expect to pay for one?? Or even better does anyone have one they want to sell in Adelaide??

Cheers

OK then does anyone have an opinion on Pat Gardner (V6 Conversions)?

OK well we've discussed CRS at length, can anyone make a comment on Pat Gardner?

I'm seriously considering sending my EH to him to have the V8 dropped in, but a few issues concern me, namely that he doesn't sling a chassis underneath it and that I don't know whether or not he is reputable.

Anyway CRS quoted me $8250 for labour (150 hours @ $55 p/hr) to finish the work even though I've done quite a bit.

On the other hand if I pulled all the CRS stuff out and got Pat to do it with his stuff the labour charge is only $4000.

So what do you blokes think?
