HUD

My HUD lights are dim as and im thinking of replacing them with some nice new LEDs to give it a bit of aesthetics. The car is blue and so is the interior, so i was thinking change the HUD/Clock from a [Naughty Pottyword]ty whitish orrange to a nice dim blue. Anyone done this before or think a different colour would look better?

Cheers.

Sudden surge of power....

Hey trooperz...

Can someone explain to me , why it is , that every time i take off in the HR or change gears that she slowly creeps her way up to the desired speeds, however....if i back off on the accelorator just a smidge...BAM...she gets a boost of power and gets to the desired speeds heaps quicker...

What i am really hoping to hear is that if i adjust something..(other than my foot position)..that can allow me to acheive this power all the time...it makes drivin the old girl , that much better..

Look forward to hearin back from anyone...

Take care yall..

Swap 6 cyl 5 spd to auto

I would like to know what's involved in swapping my 5 speed to an auto. I know I will need: auto box and shifter, drive plate, radiator and oil lines, brake pedal, auto switch that goes in line with starter.
Is the spigot bearing in the crankshaft the same size and is the tailshaft the same length?
Also is it possible to use an auto out of a VL with the overdrive?
Anything else would be a great help.
Thanx, Big Al

Engine conversion

g'day,iv been searching the trading post and have seen preety cheap injected v8s, i was wondering if a injected 5 litre from a vn would be possible to convert to a vc station wagon..im only 16 and my cousin has managed to get a vs senetor engine in his vh ss...and its a fact that efi is more reliable than carby..so i thought it would be preety cool if i put 1 in the vc wagon and turn it into a sleeper, and if it is possible...how much will it cost ?

Clutch pedal return spring

Q/ On a VB - VH manual car.
When the cluch cable is removed from the clutch pedal, should the pedal return spring hold the pedal up or to the floor?

I removed mine, and the pedal flung to the ground. Same with one I looked at the wreckers.

My thinking the return spring should return the pedal up.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers - Roots
