CHANGES BY RTA IN NSW CONCERNING MODIFIEDS

As many of you are aware the RTA is planning extensive changes to engineering process's in NSW regarding modified vehicles, im sure there has been many posts concerning this issue. There is a planned protest at Eastern Creek raceway February 26 and I encourage any car enthusiast or anyone employed in the construction and modification of vehicles to attend and voice your opinion and stand as one to stop this oppression of our right to build modifieds. The government fail to see the financial strain this will place on people employed in this field and there suppliers.

Cast Iron Welding

I got hold of this trusty old swaging machine and it needs some TLC. As you can see it has cracked the main casting and at some time it has been repaired by brazing the iron. I want to remove this and have it welded correctly. My question therefore is does anyone know of a specialist welder in the Sydney/Wollongong area that can repair this for me? I will strip it all down and have it ready to be repaired..

Removing exterior chrome window strips

Hey guys. Having trouble removing the window strips on the HZ . I can see the top strip needs to come off first, but it seem on there pretty tight. Have tried gently prying corner clips but it's in mint condition so I don't wanna damage anything. Cheers crew

Torana Springs

Hey, just wondering if anyone has any advice on what length/height a six cylinder lx torana's springs are? I am re-building the front crossmember including steering and suspention in my LX SL (4-cyl) and I am using a donor LH/LX front end, however the previous owner didn't know if it was a V8 or a six? It had the sway-bar mounted at the rear of the crossmember and not the front so I thought it may have been a six? Any help would be appreciated because I need to "adjust" the springs to get a good stance at the front of the car. Cheers...

308 backfires on gas

Hey guys,
Would an inlet valve not sealing cause a backfire on gas?
I've borrowed a family member's HZ ute today to pick something up, has a 308 blue motor. It has a severe backfire on gas only. Any sudden acceleration or slight incline has it backfiring repeatedly. Light acceleration its ok mostly, on full throttle it backfires once or twice then goes fine.

HQ dash

Giday,

I recently has a small mishap when installing a new MSD ignition module under my dash. I managed to stuff a near perfect original dash......yes I was pretty dark about it all Does anyone out there have a good black HQ single vent dash?? and would you part with it. I have seen some recovered and they didnt really do it for me so I was hoping (dreaming)to get an original one.

Cheers....Gav
