Investigating Bedfords

Hey, I've wanted a Bedford for years now.. and I'm now starting to seriously look into it. I was wondering if anyone could give me a few tips in what to look out for, and could someone please advise me on the feasibility of buying an auto and putting a manual in if I see one for the right price, or should I just go for a manual.

Power Steering conversion

Just trying to pick the brains of everyone out there, has anybody tried to run the Commodore (VN-VT) power steering rack and pump in a HQ-WB series vehicle?

I have seen a number of them on ebay and in the trading post of late at a much lower price than a standard HQ-WB power steering setup and have been thinking about this for a while.

I know that the newer pumps can't be used with the older HQ boxes due to the higher pressures, but obviously this would be corrected with the matching newer rack.

Cheers,

Webber

Another Injected Question

Anyone know with injected conversions what accelerator cable is used?

Will a VN Cable be the right length and have the right attachment at the pedal end?

Or is it going to be yet another custom job?

Cheers

LC Torana - 9 Inch swaybar

hey all I am feeling particularly lazy atm. so I havnt checked for sure, but the bloke I bought the torana off said it doesnt have a rear swaybar in it (brought up after turning corners and the tyres would rub)
anyone got some experience in how to go about finding/fitting one to suit?
im not too keen on welding anything I thought perhaps there was a kit type on already made. but im thinking it would all depend on how the diff is welded/mounted in

WTB : 1 Tonner Tray

Im after a tray for my HQ tonner. I dont want a chatty aluminuim one, a nice simple steel one with boards on it would be ideal. Its a long shot but worth a try. Be nice if it was in Sydney.

Thanks.

Wiring Fun

Fiddle fartarsing around with the wiring today and the original position for the ignition coil on the back of the inlet manifold (injected) doesnt allow enough room for it to be bolted between it and the firewall.

Im going to mount the coil in the cabin somewhere under the dash just by running a longer ignition lead and extend the positive and negative wires off the loom into the cabin. Just want to know will i lose any current this way?

Oh No!!!

Ok, we went cruising yesterday, all went well except for nearly removing my exhausts on a speed bump.
I go to start the Q this morning and nothing!!!! The battery wouldnt even iluminate a test light and it liiks like acid has been boiling out of the battery!!
I put another battery in it and when i connected the leads it gave off a spark like i had left the lights on. It started good as gold so i put the old battery and took it for a 20 min drive. When i got back it just had enough power to start it and th e battery was boiling again.

Any Ideas???

Cheers Rhys
