An old tri coluor job. The station where some of these pics were taken has just changed hands so the new owners want to clean it up-pushed up and crushed-so looking at a weekend armed with oxy,grinders and car trailer to rat out anything thats any good.

The Beast Returns

Well after the old motor sucked down a screw the beast is finally back, and looking better than ever thanks to sandmans 14x7 wheels.
Pictures can be found here:
http://www.poohey.co...

Bits wise i needed a few new valves, new block, and 1 new piston.
The rest was luckily unaffected.
Bore same as before, 40 thou.

Also sorted a collection of power problems, wrong voltage to coil fixed, and dash amp guage now reading correctly, 10-20A running.

Took abit of time to work out what was happening to the temp guage. was reading way high ever since the old new motor was put in 4 months ago.

Late Sunday - got it goin - thanks, (jumped the burnt wires and started straight away).

LH front suspension woes

Hello fellas,
Working on the front end of my LH SL/R, trying to remove the suspension with a view to taking the bits to Pedders for rebushing and new ball joints.
I have the lower control arms off and the upper ones loose, but I can't drop them far enough to make the vertical shafts clear the chassis rails (these are the shafts, two per side, that are retained by nuts accessed via the engine bay: the nuts sit in little wells either side of the engine).
I have loosened the X member bolts at the rear (near the front door hinges) and removed the forward X member bolts, but could not induce the X member to drop.

Just posted some more

Image: 

just posted a few more pics of this in my shed,

more to come

couldn't get in to his shed to take some fresh pics of her as she has been sitting for 8 years after her restoration (my brother wouldn't let me )

this car on her debut show won top paint, top drive train and one other award as well as 2nd in show(only cause the bonnet was not ready and had not been fitted.

not bad considering that most of the restoration was done outside in the dirt!!!

Speedo Driven Gear

G'day,
Just wondering if any one can help me establish which driven gear ( the plastic gear cog thing at the gear box end of the speedo cable ) suits which diff ratio.I pulled a dark green one out of a hq with a m21 and a 3.36 diff, and am assuming it's only the diff ratio's that determine which colour driven gear is required. If anyone knows all the colours of driven gear there are and what they suit I would be very greatfull.
Any info at all appreciated.
Regards CQ Holden.

Gearbox woes...

Hi,
I've got an HJ Ute- 308, dual fuel, fresh unleaded heads, crow cam, rochester qaudie etc. not exactlly hot but it still goes pretty hard when you want it to, anyways...
The gearbox that is in it is some hideous old thing not sure what it is, had it rebuilt last year and the place that rebuilt it wasn't even to sure exactly what model holden it is from, he said maybe fj or something?. Its got straight cut gears(makes nasty whine, but at least its strong), no seal on the input(leaks gear oil on hills) and is just generally a nasty gearbox. I've decided to bite the bullet and buy a reconditioned box, I would love to get a tremec but I don't have a spare 3 and a half grand. What are recon M21's like? Its never going to be a 500 hp engine so it just has to be able to handle mild mods like the crow cam(mild grind)thats in it and maybe a few other little things along the way...

HR Diff Conversion

Hey all,

Has anyone actually completed the Volvo 244 Diff Conversion?

I just blew up my diff last week and have finally decided to get stuck into doing something about it so I ask the above question. My first thoughts are though to go with a 3.73 LSD Borg Warner Diff and fit HR brakes to it to improve for future motor modifications. I will be looking at approx $3000 + a little more to do the complete conversion which is a 3.73 LSD BW Diff NEW and cut to size, Fitment, and work on the tailshaft and also freight.

I dunno what else I will need to do other then those very few things... Any suggestions?
