starfire engines/gearboxes and hydr. clutches

Hi Guys,

Does anyone know about the 5 speed box that was fitted to the 80's corona's with the starfire engines? I've heard rumors it was a derivative of the borg warner box found in the VH's (M75/M76)

What I'm chasing to see if the borgwarner (might be called a 505 5 speed box that's apparently/maybe in the corona with the starfire) has the same bolt pattern between box and bellhousing as the borgwarner M75/6 5 speed used in the commodores.

Good Panel Beater in Melbourne?

I asked a week ago about what to do about some rust, and want to get it cut out and done up by some experts.

There are so many panel beaters in Melbourne. Anyone know a good one? Ideally in the northern suburbs, im in Northcote (but will travel if worth it)

oldholden mail. trouble adding contacts

I've decided to use my oldholden mail as my main account now, but i'm having trouble adding contacts. I use it all the time, but don't have any contacts added.

The body of the page is all blue with a very thin elongated box!

I cant do anything.

Before I consult Google, does anyone know what is going wrong?

I can send a msg, but the contacts part seems unworkable.
Cheers,

Ron.
