308 water pump differences

On another thread someone was asking about the differences between early and late 253/308 water pumps. Here's a good pic showing the difference.

WTB HQ Heater box assembly

I'm looking for a replacement heater box assembly; I need both the inner and outer cause mine are cactus.
I have a good heater core and I'm not sure about the motor as yet.
I'm in Brisbane.

Cheers
Tony

304 engine wobble

Can anyone confirm for me that if the viscous fan on my 304 is slightly bent then it will cause an engine shudder/vibration? The engine feels like the timing is out but when i checked it was fine.
I have checked everything else, timing, plugs, leads, engine mounts etc but i have noticed that the fan blades appear to have a wobble on when looking at it from the side. The car had some frontal damage which is why i am thinking along these lines. Can you buy the fan separate to the viscous unit if this is the problem.

Locking fuel cap

Hi

Im in the process of trying to get a Lockable fuel cap from supercheap for my ute but not having any luck. The book at supercheap is utterly useless as it gives 3 different caps for 3 of the same descriptions, as in it doesnt say ute-panelvan, sedan or wagon.

Can anyone give me a number for the cap that will fit my ute?

Regards

Beautiful cars, ruined.

I don't understand the point of lowriders and jumping cars.

Just set fire to the EH!

Stupid mistake on my part - started off doing some touch up welding at the very back of the rear floor (under the car). I'd removed the back carpet and folded the front carpet forward under the front seat weeks ago when I started grinding. I was in a zone with my new welder and so started on a bit towards the front section of the rear floor - I didn't even think about checking how close the front carpet was.

Well it caught and spread to the back of the front seat (flames almost to the top of the seat). Lucky I noticed really as I was under the car. Smoke everywhere, a few squirts of the fire extinguisher and it's all good. The front seat needed reupholstering anyway lol

Slap to the back of my head for being such a knob and a stack of CO2 powder to clean up now inside the car.

Upsized but how much ?

I've got a 179 motor here with a 221 crank fitted;
What would the engine capacity be with a standard bore ?

How much capacity do you gain per 10 thou oversize ?

These strokers, were they strong/reliable or just dead set hand grenades ?

TIA.

octane...

Hi,all....again.
The last 3 weeks of fueling up HZ red 202 I have put in normal unleaded petrol(rather than Premium...(the local servo was out)
My question is....
Is there any long-term damage to a red motor(202) from using normal,rather than premium???
There is NO pinging,NO apparent loss of power and the timing has been always at 8deg.BTDC

I know NOT to use Ethanol due to rusting of fuel tank etc.

plugs

Hi,all....
Probabaly a silly question....
I have 2 old holdens....(woo-hoooo)
A HZ red 202,and a LH(now with a )red 186.....
The local Autobahn shop was looking up plugs for the red 186,and his book said `LH did not come out with tapered 1.5mm plugs for LH red 186`for NGK plugs(well,that`s the first one he looked at).
My questions are...
Is it legal in NSW to put a red 186 into a LH??
And...
