HR Handbrake

NOTE TO ALL: The HR Handbrake must be passed in rego as long as it will not roll down a ramp/slope.

PS - I wrote this because I failed rego until they allowed me to do this test

Kingswood SL......... what to do?

Hello all,

I have a HZ Kingswood SL, I'm now fedup with it and want to make a few changes. I've got it in bits at the mo (not completly, I'm new to this) for a respray as the old paint was starting to blow away. Its got a 202 and auto box (not sure what sort?), I want to keep this car and want to upgrade to a V8 (i think a 308).

Can anyone give me any recomendations as to what engine, gearbox (I think i want a manual, any reason why not?), any other things (new diff? driveshaft?) I might need to consider doing to make sure its gonna go well. I want to do this as cheap as possible so does that mean everything bog standard or do you have any thoughts on anything that would be worth while doing whilst I'm getting this done.

Diff check-up

Howdy,
I've just changed the Commie from Trimatic to M20.
The diff thats in her is a 3.08 ratio. A little tall for my liking. No problem taking off or anything, just when driving slowly, like in a carpark, it just motors along too fast, same with reversing. The engine idle speed is quite low.

Ive got a 3.36 laying in the shed. I'd like to give it a once over before installing it. When it was in the donor car it didnt make any noise or shudders.

flamin' eyebrows

well, thought i'd get me arse in gear and get the old ute back on the road. specially seein as i sold the commodore and really don't like walking,anyway, after muckin round with batteries and stuff i kicked it in the guts,it turned over alright but took a bit of friendly persuasion to fire,after getting it running i noticed that it was more than a bit hesitant to do anything more than idle. so i stuck me head under the bonnet gave it a bit of a rev and, you guessed it, flamage from the carby, one pair of missing eyebrows and the bloody thing won't start. anyone got any ideas, tips or just gene
