Removing ign barrel

Hi guys.

I need to change an ignition barrel on a steering column however the barrel I am replacing does not have any keys. (ie stuck in the lock position). My old column was three on the tree and I scored a floor shift column. My old honey pot bearing was also rooted so I need to change over. Any help appreciated. The column/lock assy appears to be from a HJ.

Cheers,

Paul.

HK-HT Prems

Did HT Prems have standard rear armrests like HK Prems, and did the Prem wagons lose them for the seat to fold down, as I suspect? I am trying to identify a set of electric window doortrims so I can sell them.
Thanks!

Manual column shift linkage control rods - help needed!

G'day all.

I'm wondering if someone could help me out by measuring the length of the manual column shift linkage control rods used on the manual 3-speed synchro gearbox?

I just bought myself a factory right-hand drive 1967 Chevy C10 Pickup from the US. Though it's now a floor shift, it was originally fitted with a 3 speed manual column shift and I'd like to revert it back so I can install a bench seat.

The US 3 speed box was built for left-hand drive, so the shifter lever plate was on the left hand side. This meant this RHD truck would have had a unique cross-over linkage system for the column shift - due to the rarity there's no way in hell I'll ever find another one.

Fuel pump

My sealed type fuel pump has a leak. I swapped it from a glass bowl type last year because my friend had a comodore car for parts and he said it has a bigger pump rate. Is there really any diffrence between them because i can put the glass bowl back on or do you reckon i should buy a pump off a blue motor.

TH 350

Hi, just wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to put a TH 350 out of a VN into a HQ 186??

i've seen conversion kits to put them behind V8's but a 186 might be a little harder

has anyone done this before, just throwing around the idea at this stage

Working vs replacing a Starfire

Hey all, first post here...I have a Toyota Corona with the Starfire in it, and despite people ragging on it constantly, I have quite a soft spot for it so far. Done 240,xxxkms, hasn't missed a beat, gets me where I need to be every time (albeit very slowly).
I'm replacing the 4 speed with a 5 speed in the coming weeks (just with the Borg Warner 505 most likely unless someone has a better suggestion), and I'd also like to put a bit more kick into the engine while I'm at it.

How much noticeable power would be gained from a good performance exhaust and a new carby (Weber 32/36)? Is there anything else relatively cheap/easy I could do/get done to get a bit more power/better response?
