V8 rockers on 6 cylinder ?

Has anyone fitted V8 non adjustable rockers on a 6 non adjustable head ? Went to a wrecker to check them out and he said it wouldnt work, said the pushrod to pivot piont is where is needs to be different[?].. The differance I could see was the [V8] hole where pivots from was in a different spot and the length too the valve stem was longer.I was just going to try it to see if it gave more lift to the cam, see if my motor can take a bigger cam ?
Cheers, Rob.

Question about Macpherson Struts.....

Hello guys and girls!

I've been a busy boy doing up the front end in my VH wagon. All new bushes, ball joints, shockers, and reco power steering.

My question is this: while putting the new shockers in the struts, I could not get the top nut done up to the torque setting required. Do you have to grip the shaft of the shocker while tightening the nut on top? This may seem like a silly question, but I have never played with Macpherson struts before.

Any tips/advice greatly appreciated!

Cheers,

Hi Does anyone know about my latest acquisition. I bought a VC Commodore to wreck for spares but now I think I will restore it. It has a decal on each guard the General Motors Lion in the middle with General Motors Holden 50th Anniversary 1931-1981 around it. The car is painted Commerative Gold with 2 white stripes down sides one thinner than the other. SL/E Rims as well as spare. Cloth upholstery. SL/E clock etc, silver surround on dash dials etc. It has a reconditioned motor with S.A. stickers in engine bay. I was told that these models were produced in South Australia.

rodeo

I've got an 89 rodeo and i know it isnt really a holden but the diff ratio is relly [Naughty Pottyword]ting me and i was wondering if anybody has any ideas on how i could change the diff/centres to make the ute drive more like a car than a ute as i hardly ever tow anything and the gears are ridiculuosly close. 1st only takes me to about 30k's, 2nd about 60, 3rd about 80ks if i really push her 4th to 100 and screaming and 5th is ok at 100 (but still high) and at 110 and over she screams.

Candy Apple red

G'day,

I was watching "Pimp My Ride" last night and the star of the show was a '65 Chevy Impala. The guys painted it a sweeeeeet Candy Apple red, damn it looked awesome! Anyway, my question is, can you get Candy Apple red in 2-pack or is it only available in Acrylic?

felixthadog

P.S. Can someone paint shop a pic of my Dodge (from my shed) in Candy Apple red? I want to see what it would look like.

knocking/ clicking noise

ok i have a 1990 vn commodore i recently had my clutch replaced new bushes in the tail shaft and a good check over for engine noise etc over the past few days as ive come to an intersection changing down gears to slow down there wasnt a problem but as soon as i changed to first and put my clutch in it would make this sort of knocking/clicking noise it sounds like its coming from the engine, today it got worse as when i was idoling it was fine but as soon as i gave it a few reves it would make this noise again with the clutch out sitting in nuetrel so i thought ok ill let it cool down and see if it does it then, it was evan worse when it was cold i did it when it was idoling but only when the clutch was in! didnt matter if it was in gear or not it still did it i dont know wether to take it back to the garage where it was fixed or wether its just something simple i can do myself, thanks

What a Bloody great night out....

The Farewell HG383PREM dinner was a fantastic night out for all.
Thank you to everyone that turned up to help send off Shano & Kylie.

None of us want you to go but we dont have a say in it.
You guys will be greatly missed by all the regulars here in wa.

The beers & bourbon started flowing around 6.30pm followed by dinner and more beers, bourbons, red wine & shooters.
The end of the night as we were being ushered out the door was a breathalizer testing competition.
Congratulations to the winner dave (danvh) for his brilliant effort of about 0.386 we think. Too pissed to remember. Lol

As there was no taxi's available Ben (kirk) drove us to Mr Mc Bretto's for further cellebrations.

A special thanks to Mick, Pip & kids who made a huge effort to come down from kalgoorlie for the dinner. Was great to catch up with ya Mick.

Anyway on behalf of all W.A. oldholden members, we bid you farewell & wish you the best of luck in your new adventure.

Cheers Quent...

Nitrous Oxide

I guess its stupid sunday?
Been doing lots of research on the net into nitrous oxide.
Can anybody give me a reason why, a wet system with independent fuel (petrol) system will not work on a dedicated LPG motor?

stall converters

hello,

i am rebuilding a stroked 355 and deciding on my cam. i don't know what to do since the car will still be street driven though the cams i have been looking at have rev ranges starting from 3500plus. how do i go with a stally of 3500 to suit that cam. the car should only rev around 3300 on the highway does that mean it will always slip? does that do damage? do i drive it in 2nd or something (not good for fuel though)???

thanks in advance

steve
