Rusty

Rusty, thanks for returning ownership of my shed back to me, and thankyou for the sub domain,, can I please now have a new password and username set for my shed so I can log in and make changes,,
Is there some reason why this can't happen?
have you changed your e-mail addy? as mail just bounces back..
I know your busy, is there someone else that can do this?
or is there some reason why I can't have a new one?
Please dude, I've been asking for a while now..
Should I just give you a call?

Cheers John

Bonnet release cable problems

hi, i was wondering if anyone can help me, i took everything out of the engine bay to respray it on my vc and now i cant get the bonnet open, the problem is, when i put the cable back where it needs to be, the clip that is supposed to retain the outer part of the cable doesnt seem to be doing its job and when i go to pull the bonnet open the entire cable just slides back, taking strips off the outside of the cable.? this is giving me the [Naughty Pottyword]s as i need to close my bonnet properly!!! so i can drive faster than 70kph
i am considering a solenoid to open the bonnet and doors further down the track

350 Chev -> Commodore/Kingswood

Hello all.
I was just wondering, what is involved with dropping a nice clean 350 chev into a commodore, and also into a kingswood. i presume mod plates are needed, as its not a holden motor?
also what gearbox, and other modifications would be needed e.g, gearbox cross member/custom extractors/ sump/ radiator/ and engine mounts and brackets? , what would be a good gearbox choice
Also. how much would be too much to recondition a 2 speed powerglide thats been sitting out in the weather a few years?
thanks for any advice

Blue motor dizzy

Gday all
This is not the stupid question about is it worth it or what is involved.

I am after a blue motor distributor

Does any one have one for sale? By it self, or with all the leads cap coil etc?

I don't plan to get it regraphed straight away, i know it can give me more power etc it is going on a 202 no pollution gear quite mild cam. What do you think

How do dual point mallory set ups compare to electronic?

Thanks

stupid idea or not !

g day i have an idea and was wondering if it was do able .. i read in a car mag years ago on building your own inlet manifold in this case for a 202 6 inlet manifold with a standard carby with resized jets to suit

now i know the standard 6 is a bit restricted with breathing so could it be done making your own inlet working out all the things like cfm air and fuel mix

could you work out the best way by using water to work out the best size inlet

sorry if this dosen't make sense

great site i could read for hours
