Exhausting Q!

G'day all;

Thanks for the site; heaps of handy info for a long-time viewer!

I'm about to fit extractors to an original 253 (with stomberg) and am wondering about those small pipes going from the carby to (under) the right-hand manifold. Are they sending warm air to turn off the auto choke? If I leave them off will the choke stay on (& then drinking more juice)? Should I get a "hot-box" made around the pipes? Any suggestions??? Thanks for any tips!!!!

HR stub axles nuts - help

All,

In my FJ Holden Panelvan, I have a HR front End, it has HR drum stub axles as I am putting commodore discs and calipers on it.

The problem I have is I don't have the nuts that bolt onto the shaft of the stub axle, to hold the disc on.

I had HR disc stub axles on the vehicle previously however, I thought the nuts would be the same size, so I undone the nuts of that stub axle and they did not fit as the disc ones are bigger.

diff

Went out for tea last night and on the way home had a bit of fun with another monaro ht 308.
At the lights my 202 kept up, to the point of being in front (100 km zone did not break speed limit as backed off in 3rd).
point is my diff is quick change in 1 and second. 3 and 4 run right out.
The other monaro was 1, 2 really quick change 3, 4 wind right out.

Consider cars from $0-$18,000.

Now the best part, i have a $500 cash reward for the person who finds me a Monaro coupe that i am happy with and purchse, the only catch is this is only for cars NOT advertised in the following publications.

HT PREM

Hi ive got a ht premier with a 253 in it thats just decided to blow smoke from one pipe probably busted a ring.

I dont really want to spend any money on the motor i thought i would go for a 308.

The 253 and transmision thats in the car now is out of a wb ute,so the trans linkages have been converted to the drivers side.

If i went for a 308 with a turbo transmision will it fit straight in without conversions to linkages and crossmember,and would a blue or black motor and trans fit in or should i stick to a red motor.

Any advice would be great thanks

No Spark in Distributor

I have a 1974 HQ 308 ute with Turbo 400 now my problem is there is no spark at points in the dizzy, but i have spark in coil.
When i turn it over at ignition lock(which i replaced a few days ago) it wont start.The ute was running before i replaced the ignition lock and started afterwards.But after degreasing and gurnieing motor and gearbox problem has occured.I have since replaced coil, condensor but still no go.Dizzy cap looks ok no visible cracks or majorly worn buttons inside and points not that old either and not fused together.Its getting fuel and battery is fine, motor winds over normal not slow like i have read in previous comments here.
im trying to get it registered just done all balljoints and bushes and put power steer in over weekend and was looking forward to take it for a spin around block but this happened.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
Regards
Peter.......

L34 Torana on Ebay. Is this for real?

I've been watching this L34 Torana on Ebay and the price is currently at $116,011.00 and the reserve still has not been reached.
Still a bit over 1 day to go.
No, not mine or any one I know, but good luck to them if they can get that sort of money.

Here's the link

she broke down.......

she broke down today..... I am not exactly sure what is going on just yet. Initial checks of the module, cap, rotor and coil checked out ok, just incase something was overlooked a new module and coil was fitted(leads/plugs are new), it is strange because the motor does fire briefly before continuing to crank over, then will fire again for a very short moment before cranking over again. I am of the opinion that it is in the ignition system because even if the fuel line was blocked off and a cap full of fuel was poured down the carb(ie run out of fuel scenario) The engine should fire for more than 1 second, i suppose the other scenario is that i could of stripped a tooth or two off the distributor OR the distributor has moved....suggestions anyone?

Old holden members

Gday all, ive just been browsing through OH, found the bit that says ive been a member for 2 years and 9 weeks!!! Thats a lot of time sitting on my arse reading when i really should have been working on my projects! LOL.

Think about it; if i sit here on average for 20 minutes a day reading stuff, thats 2 years 9 weeks, thats 793 days, at 20 minutes a day, thats 15860 minutes or about 264 hours wich is 11 days. *breath* Hrmm i could have had my jeep blocked back and ready for paint in 11 days... anyway back to the point.

I was just wondering, how long has this ledgendary site been around for? Hahaha How long have other members been sitting on their arse reading when they could have been working on their projects?

I just want to thank all the people that have helped me out and given much needed guidance over the last 2 years and 9 weeks. Oh and wheres Dusty?

Thanks for reading my saturday morning rant! Now get back to work on those old holdens - im off to put a holden v8 in an american jeep!

GTS Bits..

One of the Bosses at work has just bought him-self a 308 HZ GTS.
Needs a few bits to finish it off, has e/one got..........
4 GTS rims with trims, caps & some nuts.
Centre console (spelling!) for floor shift manual in beige.
4 Barrel air-cleaner.
Now this is a nice tidy car, not quite original..from new it was a 253 auto.
So I dont need matching dates on the rims for a start!!..just a few bits to make it look like a GTS again.
Cheers Q-ball.
