Ive looked through the last posts and searched but couldnt find how much horses my setup will put out. Its quite standard mods: blue 202 engine out of WB on gas, stage 3 cam and matching valve springs, plat top pistons, 350 holley and better flowing inlet manifold than standard, Jenie extractors, twin 2 and quarter inch zorst, head has just been done: inserts and small mods for gas, V8 sprint gas hat.

Anyone can give me a rough idea of output HP? How many horses did they have stock? Cheers, Krischan

Gearbox bounce

Hi,
My HJ ute came with a Celica 5 speed fitted. Goes fine except over anything slightly rough will bounce the gear stick up & down. Just driving along a smooth road, the gearstick floats up & around about 15-20 mm. Seems like the cross member support has a lot of flex in it. If I go over a speed hump too fast the box bangs up under the chassis, but not normally if I just drive normal. I have a second spare box and it is very heavy to lift. Is this bounce normal, or can I stiffen the cross member some way or add engine type mounts etc? I am worried that the continual flexing may fatigue where the cross-member is welded each side under the body. My mate with a HR has a different cross-member arrangement and it is rock steady.

HQ Bucket Seats For Sale.

I have some Bucket seats that came outta my HQ tonner. I have a bench seat now so i no longer need these. They are an aqua colour but are a bit dirty, the would probably clean up good though. There are a few tears, these seats arent pretty but are still in good usable condition.

Located in Castle Hill, NSW. I will not ship as they are too big!

Shoot me an email at atcmatt @ optusnet.com.au (without spaces, just trying to avoid spam mail)

No set price so make me an offer and i can get pics if need be.

Thanks,

Matt

HQ V8 Starter wires

Does anyone remember what colour wires go where for the HQ Statesman starter????
Does the purple wire go to the ignition switch, is this the wire that kicks over the solenoid??
Does the red wire with the little barrel thing (fusible link???) go to the fuse box to provide 'always on' power??
Can the same red wire hook up on the main terminal that the starter cable from the battery goes to??
Does the fatter yellow wire (along the firewall by the wiper motor) go to the coil?? If so, is it a built in ballast wire?? I run a twin point dizzy, and a non ballast coil.
I got a 355 in my Statesman now and cant remember what wires go where, and wiring diagrams dont really seem to help me.

Fresh 308, Pinging

Hi Everybody,

Got a few questions that hopefully someone out there can shed some light on for me.

Just got myself a fresh 308 built up about 2 months ago, and seem to be getting a lot of pinging issues when taking off from lights, or up large hills. The oil pressure on my GTS dash shows that when I pull up at the lights, the oil pressure just dies and drops down to the red. I have changed oil over to a thicker blend, being summer I thought that perhaps it was just way to thin. Currently have Penrite HPR 40 (25-70), and the oil pressure read out from my last dynotune was a seemingly healthy 28 @ Idle and 48 @ 2000rpm. The oil pressure seems to be fine when the engine is first driven, and there does not seem to be pinging present at all until the car gets hot on a long trip, or on very hot days after a few k's it just goes straight to the red at the lights and pinging is present.

VN Style Starter into HZ

Hello,

Just purchased a VN Style Bosch BXH-136 starter for my HZ Sandman. Tried to fit it and noticed that it will not go in as the exhaust manifold sits slightly to far inwards for the new style starter. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this? As the only solution I can see is to fit extractors, which I have'nt budgeted for right at the moment. I know other that this problem the starter fits perfectly, same bolt pattern, etc.

Hope someone can help, because my starter aint got much left in her atm.

Cheers,

HZ Sandman
