RB30 into UC Torana

I have just purchased a semi restored UC Hatch which I,m figureing on putting a RB30 Nissan 6 into. Has anyone out there done this mod or know of things to watch for. Or in fact, can they actually be fitted.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Distributors

Hi Guys, had some recent overheating problems in my VK EFI. After all the work i have done (everything humanly possible to cooling system), i have finally got down to the distributor. I was looking at putting a new one in myself. The motor has a brand new genuine holden harmonic balancer. I am going to get the old dizzy re-built and re-graphed.
If someone could please tell me, how am i to go about installing and removing the old one correctly.
I am going to take out the spark plugs and check No 1 cyclinder at TDC lines up with harmonic balancer notch and 0 degrees. Also make sure that the notches on the dizzy line up with this when i install again.

Has anyone heard of a Vacationer 2 HJ ?

I recently picked up a HJ Vacationer 2 in excellent condition for $300, I owner. It has a goldish colored roof and port wine looking color body (paint is very faded). Does anyone know any information on this particular model ? I have been a Holden man for quites some time and own a HQ but I never heard of this model before. Also where would be the best place to find original color options for early holdens ? I was told Dulux but scouring the net has found jack [Naughty Pottyword]. Any feedback would be great.

Cheers.

Fuel Consumption

Hi Everybody!

I'm sorta looking for my next car (as soon as I sell my VK) to be a HQ thru to HZ 253 on gas. I just wanted to know if anyone knows what sorta fuel consumption/mileage I should be expecting to get from it...provided it is tuned and I don't thrash. I'm also looking at something like a HJ thru to HZ Statesman 308 on gas...(Wouldn't mind any figures for that either), which is my dream car. Cheers!

Extractors...?

Dad, found some really cheap extractors ($10 or $20 cant rememeber exactly) and bought them tihnking if they don't fit then who cares because they were so cheap...

Now before trying to install them, could somone please tell me some more about them, we know they are Genie extractors (have the little badge) and they don't look to crash hot but with some effort they'll come up decent.

ex cop car??

lucky enough to have scored a '69 HT Premier with original 307 Chev and 2spd Powerglide.... she's a beauty!! Firstly, does anyone know how i can find out how many were made - I think it's fairly rare (as HT saw 308 come in and 307 phased out). Secondly, the engine number includes a "P" and I've been told this has something to do with police - anyone know if this model was used by the cops?

starter or flywheel

I know this is not a holden,but my wifes car let me down while I was trying to park my HQ Prem V8 next to my HT Wagon with soon to be V8. She has a nissan nomad, she called the RACV ( she dosn't want me to touch it) who said it was the startermotor, I think it could be missing a tooth from the fly wheel. It,s an auto with no inspection cover, 9 times out of 10 it will start, when it dosn't (starter just winds) I turn the motor by the fan belt about half an inch and it will turn over. A new starter is about $300 bucks so I don"t want to get one if I don"t have too.
