TD GEMINI ENGINE ALTERNATIVES

Hey all,
I am a owner of a 1979 TD gemini and I am in need of some info for engine transplants. My ford loving cousin wants me to put a 250 cross-flow in, and it looked like a decent alternative, but recently I have read the 3.8ltr v6 from VN's fit in as well? Does anyone have some info for me? Does it straight bolt? what do I need to do? costs (roughly)? Any info would be greatly appreciated

Ben

new pick n payless

hey fellas,
i went to the new pick n payless down at ingleburn yesterday and its great, all under cover, 2 massive warehouses, $2.00 entry and u can go in and out all day. At the moment they only have 4 kingswood's, but there is so many parts on them and there cheap, they replace like 100 cars a week, the dude there wanted $40 for a set of good condition lukey extractors off a black motor, shame they dont fit my car cuz i was gonna buy em, so i just thought i would let you know, so if u havent been there make sure that u go for a drive and check it out, diffinantly worth it, i know ill be back there very soon

HQ-HZ panelvan wanted in really bad condition

I'm chasing a HQ-HZ panelvan in really poor condition. It can be rusted out etc. but would prefer as complete as possible body wise. Interior engine etc. not important and must be very cheap. If you think the one you have is too far gone it won't matter, the rustier and cheaper the better! Brisbane area only please

Thanks

Simo
