HT Steering Arm hits the sump

I've just put a 308 into a HT that had a 186 and now the steering arm that runs across the car is just touching the back face of the lowest section of the standard 308 sump. Engine mounts are brand new.

Any ideas on why this would happen?

Help

Hey guys,
Has anybody on here ever put a supra 5 speed into a HQ holden sedan V8?

Is there any tunnel modifications required? do you have to cut into the chassis rail lip at back of the gearbox?

do you have to use one of the more forward sitting shifter locations?

does the back of the gearbox stick up through the floor? is this legal?

any help much appreciated
Bryan

Just a quiet cruise

Gday all.
Just got home from a quiet drive to Ararat and back in my HG Ute. Around 350 miles no problems.
Saw about 8 Ts and Gs while I was on the road and just wanted to say how good it is that they acknowledged when I waved - there is a bond among Old Holden drivers after all.
Tremendous to see the cars out being used although it was a cold old day up the bush.

Turbo 400 best shifter?

Hi everyone,

Just hoping for some advice on shifters. I have a chev 350 with a turbo 400 in a ht monaro. I have had my car off the road for 5 years as I have been restoring it. Anyway it is going for a blue slip soon but the shifter is an old b&m one with no inhibitor switch so I am being told it wont pass.

I have been looking at new B&M shifters and even at putting an original console and shifter back in but the transmission isnt original anyway so hard to know how far to go especially as running out of cash after 5 years restoring this machine!

LPG shuts off with new Distributor installation

G'day fellas,
I've just installed an aftermarket HEI single wire dizzy on my HX Stato and now find my LPG shuts off after warm up. There was a little relay type box with an LED which was connected to the (-) of the coil which I moved to a switched 12v source when I removed the coil. I'm now wondering if that box is some sort of safety switch which senses impulses from the coil negative and shuts off the gas relays. If this is the case can I just plug that into the tach drive output of the new dizzy to achieve the same thing?
Any advice is much appreciated.

Responsive gauges

Hey

Just watching a video in "mingo's" shed of the startup looking at the dash. My question is why are all the gauges so resposive? Soon as it starts the fuel and temp gauges fly up, and the tacho really jumps about with the revs. I too have a GTS dash but mine is sooo slow. Fuel takes a good minute before its up, battery charge, oil pressure and temp are the same as well. And the tacho can not even keep up to the 2.8's enormous power output...
