Brake upgrades

Hi I was wishing to change my old kinga over to disc brakes allround and was hope someone might be able to help, I was hoping to change my current HK stud pattern to HQ would this work as I would also like to put a set of HQ monaro rims on because they look so tough and are original, back to what I was asking are the diffs different lengths and I was told that the HQ front hubs fit straight onto HK's, I was told that HQ were longer by about 2-3"is this true, is there any alternative diff setup available on a budget plan still wanting the HQ stud pattern????????

HQ 1 Tonner build ... some info needed

Hi guys, Just after a bit of advice if anyone can help.

Building up a HQ 1 Tonner at the moment. Currently have done up the motor (cam, lifters, manifold, carby etc). Its running a warm 308 with a TH400 and standard everything else. A couple of areas I want to focus on are as follows :

1 - diff. Currently has standard single spinner. I dont know for sure (because there are no markings on it) but i think its a 2.78:1 ratio and i want to go up from here. I am thinking of maybe 3.55:1 LSD or 3.7:1 LSD. However I understand that I cannot simply take a diff from a HQ Statesman, or other ute/HQ and bolt it straight up - is this the case ? I have been told I need to source one from another 1 tonner ... can anyone confirm this ?

Bad Vibrations

I own a 1983 VH commodore. It is a 4 speed manual with a 253 V8. It is a sedan. One thing i have noticed while i drive it is when there is some weight in the rear of the car it sags and it develops a severe vibration as i accelerate up through the gears. I was wondering what is causing it, how it can be fixed, and what could be the possible cost?

any info would be muchly appreciated.

Cheers.

Hi guys from NZ - just bought my first Holden - can you help with some "issues"?

Gidday guys, Surely someone can help me!! I have been waiting to purchase an old Holden since I left school, nand finally joined the club on Sunday when I purchased a fairly straight 79 HZ Kingswood ute. It's a 3 speed manual and has the stock 6 cylinder engine and sits on some nice mags...however...there are a few problems! I'd love any advice as I am a bit of a Holden rookie!! Anyway, heres whats wrong:

1. From a first gear start, she seems to lack power and will stall intermittently. This happens wether the engine is hot or cold.
2. When starting from cold, a loud clattering sound can be heard from the engine bay for around 20 secs. Then it disappears. However, if you depress the clutch it comes back. I thought it may have been the starter motor, but perhaps its a clutch issue? With higher engine revs and when travelling at road speeds, there in no noise and the gearbox changes effortlessly. It seems to be a low speed/stationary issue.

hr brakes in ej

I need to know if the HR brake booster goes sraight in on the firewall of an EJ. I have an EJ with a 202 but it still has drum brakes. I do however have a set of beaut Hz front stub axles and rear diff with drums. Should I

a)keep rear drums from the ej and put on the hz stub axles with rotors on front. But what about the pressure difference?

b)Maybe fit both HZ rotors and rear diff and perhaps HZ booster and valve. Will they fit?

c)keep to the HR rotors and stub axles and fit up the rear drums or wheel cylinders or put a dfferent pressure valve in?

Any info on these questions wi

Trimatics

What's the general consensus on trimatics? Are they any good? What's the best way to set them up to sit behind a warm 308.

I'm looking at buying an HQ monaro that's got one in it. I was after a T400, but looks as monaro's with this tranny as original aren't that common (happy to be corrected on this).

THEIVING BASTARDS ARRESTED!!!!!

For all you poor Holden fans out there who have had their pride and joys stolen or broken into, this story should cheer you up!

Back in November 2002, I'd been out on the town one Friday night with my best mate. I didn't really hit the bottle much but my mate did so he spent the night at my place.

At 2:05 am I woke to hear someone trying to start a car. Next thing my mate's on the balcony yellin' 'OI!!!'. I shot up out of bed and looked out the window to see someone in his car with the door open. Just then the motor started and he bunny hopped it up the street. I raced out, grabed my thongs, keys, wallet and the keys to the HX.
