Auto to Manual Conversion

Hi. All

I Just joined. Wanna know a few Tech points on a conversion.

Just did a Conversion on my sons TORANA from Auto to Manual.
The only problem we struck was that the clutch cable had to have a metal shaft inserted at the gearbox end of the clutch cable. Any way over this.

Now that that was successful I am going to do the same to my Nephews HZ ute. Coverting from Auto to Manual following the same way we did the TORANA should there be anything that we should know and what the main probems will be. Dont really know where to put the hole for the shifter **Any Ideas**

List of parts aquired so far:

308 or 350 into an EJ

Ive got an Ej ute and its got a 202 in it now... but i wanna put either a 308 or a 350 in it. Im just trying to get an idea of what sort of $$ im lookin at... could anyone let me know how much it would cost to buy a good condition 308 or 350 and then how much it would cost to get it put in. I already have a VT diff and very solid running gear so hopefully it should just go straight in...

Any info would be greatly appreciated... thanks guys

New member already asking annoying questions.........

Hi, brand spanking new member, cant believe there is a site like this available. I have just finished restoring a HZ one tonner, trying to make it as stock as possible, and everything seems to be fine barring the carby. I have a stromberg on it, and when I slow down and take off again, occasionally there is a flat spot where it nearly stalls then gets going. The best way I could describe it is like the fuel line is choked for a second, then released again. Is this flat spot common to Strombergs, or do I need a tune up and new jets maybe? If anyone could help it would be great. Otherwise, great

Accelerator cables...

Well i got my triple strombergs on. On the original torana manifold. The bloke i got the carbs reco'd at said i'd have to get a custom cable made up for it to work. Now my question is.... How would i convert the old linkage system off the torana to a cable set up. My HR has had a cable installed that was working on my fuel pissing holley. Now I've seen a cable conversion done to a few triple carb set ups. (SU's and Strombergs) I even have a few pictures of engine bays with this done. BUT! when i took the pics i dident really know i would have triples on my car one day so i didnt zoom in on cable set up.

Bastards

Some goons broke into the Ute yesterday at Wyong station the b*ggers.
Can you believe they stole my air filter and my oil cap? Not only those my battery and gear knob.
Just don't get why they'd bother taking a very used air filter and a oil cap?
Just wanted to confirm, as I've now got an open hole in my rocker cover - are breather caps legal on Blue motors? or are they a pre-pollution thing only?

Nose cone

Evening all, got a twin headlight nose cone for a HZ in my shed and when I was having a look at it today I noticed that it is not like any other HZ prem or stato front I have seen. Picture a stato front with the part about the grille coming out to a sharp body line and standing up square, now picture a single headlight front that sort of rolls down towards the grille, my nose cone has twin headlights but has the single headlight centre section, what does everyone think may be the case? I was thinking a cut and shut using a damaged stato front possibly but I didn't think to have a look at the rear of the panel to see if there were any joins.
