186s Exhaust for HT/HG

Hi Oldholden members,
Does anyone know where I can source an original or good reproduction 186s exhaust system for a HT/HG? I have the engine pipe, but I don't have the rest of the exhaust - I know I can get an exhaust shop to make up a 2inch systme for my, but I am trying to be authentic with a restoration.
Cheers

Leaking rear seals

My OH leaks oil from the rear main seal (308). Pretty common I guess, although my motor is almost new so I'm a bit peeved by this.
Anyway an acquaintance was telling me that some engine rebuilders these days modify Holden blocks to accommodate a Chevy one piece rear main seal to rectify the inherent issues with the regular Holden seals.
Is he correct? Does this actually happen?

Wanted: HQ passenger side rear wheel arch stainless trim

Hi all
I'm after a passenger side rear wheel arch stainless trim for a HQ. I have the other 3 (Drivers rear, front and passenger front) already and the one I have for the passenger side rear is for the latter HJ, HX etc. HQ sort of curls inward at the bottom of the rear quarter where the other H's go straight down. I'm in Liverpool and if you have a good one you are prepared to part with, let me know the cost and where we can meet up. I'm on here everyday.
Cheers
Keith

rusty chrome tappet covers

The old q tonner has [or had] chrome tappet covers which now are pitted and going rusty. Thought I might give them a cleanup and a paint job.Any special things I should do or will engine enamel spray straight on?
Or could they be powdercoated
Thank you

HK Kingswood for sale

Hey all, my old HK Kingswood is for sale. Letting it go to someone who has the time and dedication to enjoy it.

It's a 161ci high compression with a rebuilt Celica 5 speed, not registered. It needs to pass an engineering inspection for the gearbox swap, just a bit of tweaking left to do. More details are on the Gumtree ad, but feel free to ask further questions here.

Link to the Gumtree ad.

Upgrades to a 179 (cam advice etc)

Hey there,

I have recently rebuilt a 179 red from an eh wagon. New twin barrel weber, extractors, reground head, bored to 189 ci, new rings and general rebuild stuff.

It goes nicely now and is a great cruser.

But... being a young rev head i want more power. I want to keep this engine cause i love the old straight six's plus its the original motor.

My question is:

What sort of mods should i look more deeply into which will give me more power but won't tell the fuel effiency to take a hike?
