LPG vs petrol comparision

I'm trying to work out if it is worth the expense of converting my HR ute to straight LPG, or just pocketing the cash and leave it on unleaded.

Has anyone been able to do a comparison of running on straight gas as opposed to petrol? If the time to recover the costs is huge then why bother?

I do at least 500km a week at about 100km/hr average. The ute will have either a powerglide or trimatic auto - 3.36 diff ratio.

any help much appreciated!!!

Full Manual Valve Body

Has anyone here completed a full manual valve body conversion on either a t400 or a t700, im wanting to price it up for the HQ and wondering wether or not if its gonna be worth it in both money and blood sweat and tears? Also has anyone done a mini tubbing on a HQ so that i can squeeze some bigger rubbers underneath it, the more traction the better i always say, any help with either would be great ey.

locked up crank

in the middle of rebuilding a 186, its been years and i've forgotten, i've put on the 2 end main bearings, and the crank won't turn, the old bearings have 010 stamped under them, so i got 010 new bearings, i know theres a tension with a torque wrench to turn the crank over that and the bearings are too big, but i only have the 2 end caps on and rear main seal in and i cant budge it, if i back the bolts of slightly, (finger tight) it moves, someone please refresh my memory

What to do?

Gday guys,

What should I put into the Kingswood? It's currently 186 with three on the tree as per original, so the choices are (as I see it at least!) -

i) keep it original and redo the engine bay as per stock standard
ii) track down a 186s block and go down the 186s route
iii) RB25 or RB30 with/without turbo... my preference is RB30DET so I can keep the 186 badges!!
iv) get a 454 and wedge it in with half chassis.

Obviously, the first two will be cheaper than the last two, but would anyone have any idea of install costs (assuming stock motors) for the last two options, given I'm hopeless with a spanner?
