Richard

Hi, Top [Naughty Pottyword]in site hey!

Anyways im 15 and looking to buy my first pride and joy. Im steering towards the ute side of things hoping to buy a HQ ute, being a Huge fan of HQ's (my father owning a HQ 2door with a 350). Since budget is a problem for me, only managing to have about $4000 to spend on my car, what would you wise people suggest i buy ? 202, 253 or 308 ?
Please keep in mind that INSURANCE for a "P" plate driver is [Naughty Pottyword]ing expensive, and i want to be able to fit my pride and joy with some mods, like wheels and cd player.

Quady

The newly rebuilt 600 holley has put the ute off the road AGIAN. This time the secondary linkage jamed while driving on the freeway, this meant limping home at 60km/h due to lack of power so i want to convert back to the vaccum secondary Quady, only thing is i dont quite know whats involved returning to original. The 600 is a square bore linkage setup with manual choke, will i need a new inlet manifold or anything else, also how hard is the vaccum secondaries to hook up. Hoping for better economy with the quad too!

Cheers...Alex

Spittin' oil?

Ah, hi
a couple of weeks my car started spitting a fair bit of oil out the dipstick when running, i was told by a a mechanic friend that it was probably blowback through the piston rings. So i believed that and the car's been off the road since then (planning on selling it)
now, the motor is a pre-emissions block with a post emissions carbie and inlet manifold/exhuast. the carbie hoses are blocked up though.
ANYWHO, i've seen a different oil filler cap on some red motors that are black and cylindrical (a couple of inches tall) i just have a normal oil filler cap
could this be causing the problem? i just want to elimate all possibilities before repalcing the motor or selling it (the latter ius more likely as i've already replaced it once since i bought it in january..grr)

Auto to Manual

I've got the good old trimatic at the moment. I'm looking to convert to manual, however i don't want to put in the M20. I was looking to put in the Celica 5 speed steel box. I was wondering if i have to make any mods to fit it in my car. For example do i have to change drive shaft?

Salisbury Diff Wanted (Sydney)

Hi all,
I'm after a very cheap (less than $100) Salisbury diff. I'm mainly interested in the crown wheel and pinion (any ratio considered), so it doesn't matter if it is sedan, ute, busted housing, has brakes or axles etc. The cheaper the better.
Send me an email at gts_688@hotmail.com and let me know what you want to get rid off.

capacitor/coil fault?

My prem was running fine until I used the coil and capacitor on another vehicle to try and get it going. When I put it back in the prem it now coughs and splutters and pops back through the carb. I haven't changed timing or touched anything else. Is this what happens when you cook one or other of these?
