NSW Blue Slip - Change of Details

G'day all, just a quick one about NSW rego - Blue Slip "Change of Details". I had a HQ Monaro coupe (which is currently on ebay at double what I paid 2 years ago...SPEWING!!!)registered for a 253, but actually had a 308 in it. I was a bit concerned with rego / insurance so got a change of details, bloke said it was all good, they came out up to 350 Chev engine. Can you however, get a change of details for a 202 to 308? Or is that not allowed beacuse of jumping up a size from six to V8? Thanks in advance to any replies, Josh.

Attention: Puller wanted

My brother had a bit of a drama this morning with his new EJ. The timing gear has shat itself and we are trying to remove the harmonic balancer. It's a grey 138.

Does anyone in Perth have a harmonic balancer puller they would lend or know where we could buy one. We are desperate and have tried the local engine builders and parts dealers (rare spare's included) with no success. 1 guy had one but he won't lend or even hire it out (even with a large deposit).

They look like a bolt with a nut that has threads on the outside (not like the 3 bolt one's for the red motors).

What size engine...hmmm....

Image: 

Hi All,
Just found out that the bloke I paid a whole lot of money to fix a tired red 253 has run off with my money and it seems that I have to get a new engine! Yay for mates of mates mechanics!
Has anyone got any suggestions for what to put in? I really want to keep it manual and dont think I should be mucking around with dirty old 454 big blocks (one can still dream though...) so should a 350 be ok with an M21? I already own a race car so I wont be thrashing it but want a decent tow vehicle and cruiser with that sweet V8 sound.
Has anybody mucked around with new crate engines or should I buy second hand and rebuild?
Need to have it all engineered and up and running by the van nats in easter which every self respecting van owner should be going to.
Reason for the pic? Just to keep me motivated and to not bore everyone to death with my rookie questions!!!
Cheers
Damo

Clutch Plate Identification ?

Hi Guys,
I suspect I have blown the clutch in the one tunner (cant select any gears) and I'm trying to get motivated for the inevitable.....putting a new one in....but I doubt that this tunner is stock standard.....how will I know whether it has a heavy duty clutch or a standard clutch or doesn't it matter.....how do you tell them apart?

RB30 Timing

Hey members,
looking into getting more power out of my rb30e, in a vl. It already has extractors and a mandrel bend exhaust system and shortly I will be installing cold air intake. Now I'm looking into installing a stage 3 chip. Where I think I will get close to 150rwhp which is just what I'm after. Problem is timing MUST be set to factory level, which is 15 degrees, mine is presently at 18. How hard is it to change the timing.

Bearing gone? new engine time?

I have a EH, 149 all original, the front bearing went yesterday (fanbelt pully now clanks around and spins freely) I was just quoted about $600 from a mechanic to fix it.

I can replace it myself, but is it major surgury? should I just get a new engine? the old girl is pretty tyred as it is.

cheers

Andy

Chevrolet Metric Wheels onto Hq.

Hi,

I was just wondering if 1982 Camaro Metric wheels, can be used on a hq, i was wondering if its a case of wheel nuts. As the pcd and hub are the same, the hq has 11.16 or 7.16 cant remember and the camaro has 19mm studs, i was thinking there must be some sort or nut that can do the lip. thanks.,

Bits

A couple of bits I have come across which belong to some guys out there:

I have a red head, basically brand new. Its low comp. Bought to put on my 186 but now I am going 202 EFi. Has done about 3,ooo kms. Open to any offers. Be great for turbo/sc setup.

Also an HK Monaro centre console WITH TACHO. Speaks for itself. In good condition. A bloke at work found it, has had it for years. Gimme an offer and Ill let him know.

Also lots of HR bits inc chrome bits etc.

Oh yeah and a 30/70 Crow Cam which I bought and now I'm not going to fit.
