distributor

I'm a complete idiot and would like to know if there were different distributors in 253 Blue motors?
I went to change the rotor and condensor on the weekend, and found them to be different to the replacement parts I bought from Kmart. Was there two types fitted?
Thanks,El.

Carby conversion

HI everyone,

I have twin SU's on ym HR ute, and they are in some serious need of a work over, and as I mainly plan on using the ute as a daily driver, I dont think I need the hassle or expense of such high performance carbs, so I am wanting to change it over to a 350 Holley.

What I am looking for is a good carb, with a good manifold. Anyone here got one they are looking to sell? If so, please contact me on myotherapy@iprimus.c...

Any info on making the switch would also be appreciated.

Thanks all..

sand bending warning

I found an old article today about bending the exhaust by filling with sand.....after seeing some posts on this site the other day on the same topic I thought I'd post the warning that went with it....
"Ensure the sand is perfectly dry because any moisture in the sand will turn to steam when heated and shoot the bung out of the end like a cannon"
From Wheels Magazine Hot up Guide No5
(same mag Full head service from $75.00 and hotting up HB torana)
watch out kids and wives eh!

REGRETFUL SALE

I have driven my HK Kingswood wagon for the last 12 years but family situations have called for a new Commodore. It has been a great car and I have the original purchase papers from 1968 to prove I am the second owner. A few $$$ have been put into the old girl, re-con motor....still 186s, re-spray...rust cut out, new exhaust, tyres,shocks,windscreen,trim,carpet,gearbox etc.etc.etc
Definately not a "bog and flog" car...plenty of pics of bodywork to prove this!!
I have been using it as a second car for a few years now so it is not in show car condition but is a very good example of a classic wagon. A great daily driver..very reliable.

G'day everyone,
I am lovingly restoring an old FB and am having a great deal of trouble tracking down a BAR RADIATOR GRILL (The horizontal chrome strip that runs across the front of the bonet and the two seperate sections for the gaurds below the headlights)
If anyone has one, or knows someone who does...please contact me. I am quite prepared to pay a pretty penny for one in fair nick.
Many Thanks
Cameron

Heavy Clutch

My wife knows an old lady that comes into her shop a few times a week. Anyway, the poor old thing is now over 80 years old, her husband died 3 years ago and he used to do all the work on her car, she does not think she'll live too much longer and she fears that her local mechanics are ripping her off and after hearing a few things they've done I fear the same thing. She wants me to go out and have a look at her HD next week and give it a check over and check a few faults that she has on the car.

New to this

Hello all. Just joined up ($10's on the way) and was keen to get into this sweeeeet site. I own a 1970 HG belmont ute, Prem front and badges. Discs up front, 186s with 3 on the floor, extractors, neat but nowhere near finished. I'll get some pics on soon. Just about to buy a celica 5 spd to fit the 6 but its in a HQ. I know the box will fit and the cross-member wont but I was wondering if the tailshaft is any good 2 me? Cheers guys and girls.
