HZ Statesman SL/E

I've got a genuine 2 owner HZ Statesman SL/E that I no longer have a use for. It is fitted with straight gas and a T/H 700 4speed auto, otherwise it is stock. I'm the second owner of it. it needs paint but otherwise is in pretty good nick for its age. I've just got too many cars and would rather see her used/restored by someone who appreciates a fine car. I'm asking $3500 for her and the car is in the Dubbo NSW area Wha tdo you think?

And so it has begun

And so it has begun,
the old EFI 202 came out of the VK today to make way for the very free VN V6 (202 was still running, i just like to keep my hands dirty)

anyone ever had the distinct pleasure of removing an engine / gearbox up a hill ? by themselves ? its pretty lame :p

with refrence to recent posts regarding vehicle safety surrounding engine mods (Hking, we are definately on the same page here :p ),

i am wondering if anyone can tell me off the top of their head if the tailshaft flange pattern on the VN diff will be the same pattern as a VL / VK ? i know the diff will bolt up with the addition of an adjustable panhard rod, i was told by an engineer that i could possibly keep the drum rear end but that isnt too appealing ...

anyway, ill post some pics as the project continues, painting the engine bay this week, then its in with the K frame (bigger brakes / better suspension) from the VN, a bigger brake booster and all of the other fun goodies (dash etc).

my only regret is that after finishing this, i wont have chrome bumpers on my commodore, nor the old holden 6 under the bonnet :(

cheers,

scotty.

186 id

Forgotten my password again, I've given up after 5 wrong guesses. Just wondering what the specs are on the 186 in a donor car i've bought. The start of the engine number is 186P. I can't seem to find it in holdenpedia.

Axle swaps

Hi. Is it possible to use the axles out of a HQ-WB etc. Banjo diff and swap them with the axles out of a HG with a Banjo so as I could have the HQ-WB stud pattern? I know that I would have to change drums etc so any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Manifold and carby for a burnout motor?

Hi,after a bit of help please.I had a set of 45 dcoe webbers on my burnout car a UC Torana but my mate took em back.Now I have a comp in 2 weeks and a 2 dead carbs and no idea which one to prep for it?

1 is a 500 holley 2 barrel,the other is a 650 double pumper spreadbore.I have the a 2 barrel and a 4 barrel manifold but both carbs need a rebuild and I just need to know which would work best for this purpose.I have had many people tell me to use the 500 but only 1 tell me to use the 650.I would like to know why the 4 barrel won't work on the motor as it's going to be sitting at high rpm all the time and I have no issue with driving it on the road as she just a burnout rig.After all it had tripple wbbers on it before and it screamed hard!

It has a 173,11.3 comp,small solid cam,ported 9 port head,electronic dizzy,extractors and a 2 1/2" exhaust to the diff, high stall trimatic,and a welded up 3:89 banjo.

Any help would be great..ThanksMex351.

Paint on wipers

G'day,

I made the mistake a few years ago of spraying my windscreen wipers with black enamel. Can I strip the paint back to the bare chrome or do I need to buy another set of wipers?
