Is it a head gasket issue?

I have a 253 red motor that has rust looking stains leaking on the left hand front, between the head and block. I have recently changed oil and there was no sign of water.

The engine has been tuned and no mention of a head gasket problem was detected.

HR steering box

hi all

just had the HR looked over, seems i need a new steering box and pitman arm. i would really rather not fork out 500 bucks to rare spares for their change over ones, so would anybody know of, or have a new or recently reconditioned box for reasonable money?

also i have been informed there is rust in the subframe, has anyone had any repairs done to theirs, and how much did it cost? i know it might be completely different to what i might get charged, but id just like to know what im looking at.

cheers!

Lets just imagine...

that I owed an original HQ GTS Monaro Coupe with all tags. Now if the interior and paint were all original but had seen better days would I be better off keeping everything the same colour etc to match the tags or picking a completely different colour spray job that personally I would enjoy more.
In other words the colour and interior are a little bland and boring....worth the change or stick with original?

Thanks Limited Ed.

redbeard

i have a few questions regarding building up a chev i hope you could help me with as i've been right into 202's and only recently been thinking of the transition to a v8.

what sort of power estimates would the 383 you built have??

why i questioned the 2 bolt block is i keep getting mixed opinions on the 2 or 4 bolt question. so do you think for a street motor with only the odd run on the strip for some fun a 2 bolt block would be fine?? even with the stroker crank?

Fram Fires...

G'day all,

First, good luck to those dealing with the fires in Gippy.

I've just heard that the fires down around Framlingham in SW Vic are considered under control which is good. If anyone's got any info about how it's looking down that way could you post it? It was only last week I was back home down there and actually drove around that area.

Cheers

Vanman...

Engine numbers for HZ Van

I've taken the van to the mechanic for a pink slip. He reckons that a 1979 HZ should have a blue 202 motor in it instead of a red 202. He reckons he even spoke to the RTA about it. That means that I would need to transplant the motor. I reckon the mechanic is being a greedy ***** by making trouble for me. Am I right about it?

Specifically, is it true that the HZ 1979 Van came with a blue motor?

Running a 308 without resistor connected

Greetings,

We have an orange 308 in our skiboat and are having starting problems. Now I am not mechanically or electrically minded but I wwill give it my best shot.

It was running fine at the lake, then all of a sudden - no go.

We had fuel (flooding after continual turning over) but no spark. Appeared to have spark at points. Ran battery flat trying to get a fire. Back at home next day, charged battery and tried a touch of aerostart - still no fire.

I disconnected the ceramic resistor on top and held the two terminals of the wires together and tried to start it - Bingo, immediate ignition, (not even feathering the throttle like we usually need to do).

Replaced ceramic resistor with new one and it wont start again, but bypass the new resistor and she starts fine.

How bad would it be to run it for a few hours without the resistor connected? I have heard that I am likely to burn out the points as the voltage hasn't been dropped to what it needs, but how long would that take?

Also, what is likely to be my problem in this situation? The coil?
