one for the gas guru's

need some advice with my gas setup for my 186, it currently has an adaptor that sits between the carby and the original air cleaner, which helps make it original but has been rubbing on the bonnet and has now rubbed through the heat matting and polished a bit of the bonnet. can i remove this piece and just put a fitting in the bottom of the air filter and feed the gas in that way or does it have to go straight into carby or get one of those snorkel style gas inlets?

thanks in advance

hydraulic clutch conversion

Hi people,
I have collected a number of parts to convert my aussie4spd/186 clutch to hydraulic.
Can someone please advise me if I can find the bolts needed easily:

a) the bolts that hold the slave cylinder, p4519, to the bracket, are they common or the same as some other parts on oldholdens?

b) the bolts that hold the bracket to the bellhousing, do they need to be longer than the ones I will take out, again are they the same as something else on an old holden?

VS SS being used as donor for HG Brougham Rebuild

Hey Guys,

I have an HG Brougham that has been sitting in my shed for a couple of years now waiting to be rebuilt. The original engine is long gone and has been replaced with a 253 thats shagged.
And now have obtained a VS SS (that has been slid sideways into a pole.) from which I plan to transplant the 304 which seems in good nick having done 150K and appears to have been looked after.

Curious as to what else from the SS may be useful for the Brougham rebuild, and if anyone has used these parts for an HG rebuild before such as trans, diff, disc brakes etc.

Banjo or Salisbury wanted

Hi all

Turfing the Aussie fourspeed and the Salisbury 278 LSD from the monaro in favour of toploader and 9 inch. I am seeking a Salisbury or banjo empty housing to suit hq sedan in the Brisbane area so as I don't have grind the brackets off my Salisbury to give to diff shop and I can stick ithe 10 bolt in the shed or sell off. Not sure whether to keep it aside for originality.

Also have an Aussie fourspeed with shifter and bellhousing to suit 308. Needs internal speedo gear. Had thought it was bit of a noisy box but had been driving with no boot over shifter. I am taking the fork for the toploader. You would probably want to give it a freshen up before.

Does any one know what he diff or the box might be worth?

Crashbox leaking from linkages

Hi All

Have cleaned all the ancient grease and grime on my crashbox, drained it and refilled it. Now it's leaking fluid from the linkages. Any tips?

I haven't tried tightening the nuts or anything else yet.

Cheers
Rob

Oil Pressure

Hi
I have recently replaced the cam in my 202 but have notice weird things with the oil pressure. If you take off an bring the car up to speed really quirky the oil pressure come up then drops right off. But If I slowly bring the car up to speed the oil pressure comes up an stays up. It still drop back a bit but this is due the oil heating up I am sure??
