How much to rebuild a distributor ?

I think I've finally found the problem with my car. The dizzy makes a bit of a grinding, whirring noise and I turned it over with the cap off to find that the points don't open. So I assume that the dizzy shaft is worn and moving around a bit. How much culd I expect to pay to have it rebuilt ? Does anyone want to recommend a good mechanic on Brisbane southside ?

mechanical or elecy gauges?

g'day fellas,
i'm about to buy a speco water temp guage and was wondering whether a mechanical or electrical one is better for reliabilty's sake and ease of installation. i've already got a mech. oil press guage so i'm leaning towards another mech. guage as they look the same (and better i reckon).
however the elctric one seems piss easy to install, i figure i can just splice/piggyback the wire thats already running from the temp sender and thats it? cheers fellas.

Engine capacity

Quick question for you all, I just bought an EH, the guy said it has reco 149 in it (original rocker cover with "149" sticker is on the engine) but I just noticed the block says 186.

so it actually has a 186? should I make sure my insurance reflects this, I noticed they say in the fineprint that if you don't describe your car right they can void your policy if you claim?

Cheers

Andy

Advice please Streetneat?

As Grand Master of panelbeating can you give me a bit of insight into what tools I should invest in for a D.I.Y. rust repair job on me HG?
Obviously I don't have mountains of money to spend, probably somewhere in the region of $2000-$2500 available just to buy tools with - and a lot of that will be taken up with a MIG welder I guess. (What brand/model d'you recommend?)

Now, I only need to repair the rust and prep it for paint, my brother will do the actual spraying so I don't need an air compressor/spray guns etc.

The car has a fair bit of rust in the front guards, some in the doors (at least one will have to be fully replaced), rear quarters, and those annoying little bits around the rear windscreen.

Vk being rebuilt

Gday,
I've been rebuilding my Vk 202 EFI engine after the rings went in it. After getting a slightly worked engine off of an awesome neighbour and digging out an old engine that i had in the shed, im pretty much set to have everything i need to build a nice strong engine that wont die on me.

I do have a few questions though.

How can i tell if my slightly worked engine has been stroked? it has 20 thou oversized pistons, mild cam and balanced crankshaft. will it be written anywhere? what is the distance on the stock engine?

Also i have read somewhere that if the Cam is oversized (compared to the stock cam) past a particular point, the computer needs to be changed or re-programmed? does anyone know what the deal is with this; what the exact numbers are, and/or the limit to the cam oversize?

Panelvan shell body differences

G'day fellas,

I have been away for a few weeks due to work and have come back to find the new layout of the site - well done rusty and highway! - membership on the way...

Been looking at a new shell for my project (the long suffering HX Sandman) and have come across a HJ that includes the repair section for a slight disagreement with a brick pillar for $200. Also needs a floor section, but thats not too bad.

My question is, apart from the various firewall and rear side lamp positions, what other differences are there between the panelvan models? I know that there are differences with the plates used for locking the upper rear tailgate, but is there any others?

Water temp issues

When I reach 80 miles an hour (179 unleaded head, 3 speed manual) the temp warning light starts to creep on. My temp gauge doesn't go up at at however. The temp warning light sender is just below the thermostat and the temp gauge sender is above cylinder 5.

Is there any reason why the temp warning light would come on but the gauge not register any difference in temp?

Cheers,
Matt

Now whats up with my brakes ?

I successfully swapped my single strommie for the twin throat but now my brake pedal is really soft. With the stock manifold on and the vacuum pipe to the booster I had a full , firm pedal. With the new manifold, the pedal is a lot softer with a lot more travel. I'm using the same pipes and everything, just wondering what would be causing it ?
