Engine transplanting for dummy's

hi all, does any one Know if there is a site for the A to Z on engine transplanting, similar to a workshop manual but in simpleton terms. If there isn't one I hope this would promt someone to have a go at writing one up. Where to start, what to undo etc. I have started and pulled out the old 202, I have a 253 HZ wagon sitting in my yard ready for the next step, mind you I have never done this before and I am doing it with one arm. Guess I will keep plodding along. It would be better if I could follow some instructions though! Merry Xmas, Happy new year.

Squizzy.
Victoria.

Gearbox Bounce - Here's why

I think I found why my box floats around so much. The modifications to the X-member needs more plating and gussets to be added (like you said!). The auto shops are closed till new year, then I will get some professional welding mods done.
Cheers,

fuel additives

after reading the current article in street machine and having always been a skeptic as far as fuel additives/octane boosters go...i put it to the test...and the results kicked arse!!!!

the following is from street machine...

the best concoction for 12;1 compression or lower street cars is BP ultimate and NULON pro strength octane booster, mixed exactly as per instructions on the bottle. "apparently" it is the best over-the-counter fuel you can buy--better than avgas or BP 100 on the dyno!!!!!!

so....having read this i thought i would try this fantastic concoction and see how the warm 308 liked it....i purchased a bottle of NULON and made my way down to the local shell to fill up with some optimax.....

Scuff Plates, and where can I get them?

Hi everyone,
Well the 'Swood is almost there, shes got her new flooring all welded in now and is soon to be painted, which means teh new carpet will then be fitted and here is my dileema. Scuff Plates. The set that were on the car were rusted beyond repair or re-use. I've been looking in all sorts of places to get a set for my HK. Couldn't even find any on eBay and I've been out to wreck to old prems and neither of them had a set worth giving up either. I'm in a pickle. If anyone knows where I can get hold of a set of these Scuff Plates for a HK please give us a yell, or even if youve got a set your willing to part with id happily throw some money your way.

Differential Differences

Hi all. I have two 10 bolt salisbury diffs, one in a HQ ute and one out of a HZ Premier. The one out of my premier is a disc brake unit, but the one in my ute is drum brake.

My question is, are both centre's identical? IE : The only difference is the housing and the axles, correct? I would like to take the disc brake centre and fit it into the drum brake housing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Embarrassing question...WHERE IS THE TRANSMISSION FILLER / LEVEL CHECKER THINGY???

Hi Guys. As the title says I need help with directions on finding the transmission fluid filler / guage. I have a HK Premier with a 307 & the Powerglide is starting to slip when turning right so wanted to check that the fluid level was sweet before paying $$$ to have someone look at it. I have a workshop manual which says that it's located near the engine oil dipstick, but I've look high & low but can't find it. PLEASE HELP!! =)

Noisy Lifters in VL

Hey all,
I posted a question about 6 months ago about noisy lifters (valve lash adjusters) in the old VL. I bit the bullet & replaced all of them. Now they are noisy again. Has anyone got any suggestions? Is there a filter in the sump that could be clogged & stopping the oil reaching them properly or something? Please help its really pissing me & my wallet off. Cheers.
