Chev 350 + Supra 5 speed = Struggling starter motor

Hi all, thanks for all the help so far on my conversion.
Brought the car home from the auto leccy today, everything runs well and goes like the clappers, but a problem both my mechanic and the auto electrician can't work out - the starter motor. Or specifically, the starter gear.

It's designed for a GM engine and GM transmission, but the Toyota gearbox just isn't connecting with the starter gear. When start up is achieved, cold or warm, it has a sharp whine of complaint. Sometimes it just doesn't connect and you can hear a ratchety sound as the starter gear spins but doesn't connect. In that case I need to rock the car a little to get the gear to line up.

Deconstruction

Hey guys. I've got the stateo set up under cover ready to go hard. I figure I'm just gonna rip it to pieces here and do the majority of rust removal and prep for painting. Any tips on what order I should take it apart? And anything I should leave intact? Ive taken out all carpet and interior except the drivers seat, dash, wheel & handbrake. So I can still move it. It's also got LPG fitted but the bloke I got it off said he never used it once(so a couple of years) should I rip it out or get it looked at while everything's still running? I'm putting in a new donk by the way.

Hid lights

G'day everyone,
Just wondering if anyone here has put hid lights into wb statesman headlights? Did they improve the brightness of the lights on the road? Reason i ask is because the low beam on my wb is dangerous to drive with, ive tried all kinds of different wattage globes and ive had the reflectors re-chromed with only minnor improvements.
Any input would be great, thanks Mark

horror smash

We have had an absolute horror smash right here in perth.
a VT commodore has been ripped completely in half LENGTHWAYS hitting a tree right in front of Perth city along the river.
I cant imagine what speed you would need to do that.
poor guys in it had no chance.
no point making any moral judgements here.
Please everyone just think what you are doing for a couple of seconds, give yourself a chance to change your mind.

thread repair advice needed

hi folks,

need a bit of advice on a crook thread in my 202 block that takes a 7/16 head bolt.

should i try a helicoil type fix (will it take 75 ft/lb?) or should i drill it out and put in a 1/2 inch thread and try and find a apropriate bolt or does someone have a better idea.

cheers,

benzzzy
