SLR 3300 Instrument cluster

Can anyone advise me on the approx costs of a instrument cluster for a LH Torana SLR 3300. As per my previous questions yesterday I have found that the spring in the fuel gauge has now broken. Could the indication problems on other gauges be due to the voltage regulator on back of cluster being faulty. The Tacho is not working, does it hook up to the coil like other electrical tacho's?. I have just purchased a Holden service manual for the LH Torana but find the electrical diags a bit hard to read. I live in Brisbane.

Rubber Kit

Hi -
I have a HG Kingsy '71. I am in the middle of a restore, where is the best place for a rubber kits? I mean cheaper than Rare Spares they seem a little steep (I think). 1st restore so any advise would be great. Would it be a good idea to recycle the good rubbers as I am going to sandblash the body.

HR Heater....is there such a thing?

G'Day Champions....

Real quick one...Can anyone tell me if there is such a thing as a heater in the HR...I know that's sad huh...you'd think I know....I own one!

The dilemma I have is , when I bought the old girl...there is only one lever on the heater/air.....switch ...and that's the lever in the centre...

Man this sounds more and more stupid as I type...

My problem is this....Since there is only the lever in the middle of the switching unit...and very little markings after 36 years of driving....I cannot for the life of me determine whether I am opening or closing vents or whether I am even doing anything at all when i move that lever!

Throttle Body Injection

Okay, more questions for you very helpful bunch.

Which setup should I go for, Early block 308 with late injection setup from VN, or a 350 Chev with throttle body injection setup? Not to familiar with throttle body injection setups, however it appeals to me as it will provide more power than a 308, keep the engine bay looking a bit more traditional, plus give me the reliability of injection.

What are throttle body injections like? How do they go with reliability and mileage in mind? And does anyone have an idea of what sort of dollars I would be looking at to have the conversion done, considering an engineer's certificate and all accessories will be required.

LH Torana SLR instruments

My oil press gauge and fuel gauge and temp gauge all read full scale when ignition is on. I have checked all the wiring attach points at temp/oil/fuel sensors and appear ok. I removed the instrument cluster and seems ok. Also the Alternator light comes on very dim when lights are on and volt indicator goes down to just on lower red line. Alternator was checked and charging correctly. I have fitted a new battery. Any suggestions please.
