Apholstery anyone?

Hi all. just noticed the seam on the bench seats starting to come ondone. Its drivers side front, outermost seam (covered by your arse when you sit down - it's the original interior) and I want to get it seen too before it tears the car in half!!!!

:–).

It's about 3-4cm in length, and it looks as though the seams come undone only. Anyone know a rough $$$ value to get this fixed from someone in Melbourne. I aint done any interiors on any of my cars so don't know of any good "interior mechanics". Any help appreciated

diff diff diff

gday ppl hope its all good. i saw in here once a whole chunk of stuff on i.d.ing diffs but search wont find it.can any 1 point me in the right dir? or maybe correct me if im wrong on these things: 1: a banjo diff cover is 2wards the front of car, and a salisbury at the back.
2: the lsd's and the normal diffs have the same code on plate under bonnet (so a GU4 could be a 3.08 lsd or a 3.08 normal.
3: if u jack up both wheels and turn one a lsd will turn the other wheel opposite way and normal diff the sam way?
4:there is a ratio stamp inside the diff on a gear?

powerglide

Hi all,
Just in middle of building a "mild 186" (30/70 cam, mod terra head, +60) for just a run around.
I never had anything to do with powerglides before, so i'm seeking some info.
Is there anything different for the torque converter, does it need a stall, also i'm putting in a 3.90 diff so will the ratios be right for a freeway run (110k's) for a couple of hours.
The box needs to be rebuild so when i take it in i'll inform the guys what's feeding it.
It's only going to be out on weekends and do the odd trip maybe.

So is powerglide the way or do i use the trimatic?

Is the diff wrong?

Cummins V8 or 671 GM into HX Tonner

Techy Engineer guys, this is left field stuff, but i seem to remember this conversion being done about 20 years ago.
Yeah yeah, the front end will need beefing up, to support the extra weight. probably have to jack the body to accommodate an Allison auto box, or Fuller Road Ranger 9 or 10 spd box.
From memory,the Cummins 185 hp V8, or 671 GM with blower will fit. Does anyone know who has, or can do this conversion ?
I'm dreamin, but I reckon I can get it passed the engineers.
Told ya it was left field stuff.
Any help, thanks. Left Field Drifter.

202 Blue Crank into Worked to the top 202 Red Motor

Ok Fellas this is what I got out of our 202 Crank Discussion...

1. Be careful that the crank doesnt hit the Oil Pickup Support
2. Make sure the Rear Main Seal is placed PERFECTLY

Now the things I am confused about is...
1. You must use Blue Crank Bearing Caps
2. The Crank Journals must be ground to suit the Blue Crank

When looking at part numbers in the ACL book it says the BLUE and RED crank bearings are EXACTLY the same??

I dunno I think Im a little confused so my question is:
Can I drop the Blue Crank straight in?
