308 HT

Right..need to dust the tools off over the hols. Got to put a carb 308 and 4 spd out of a Commy into a HT van for a w/shop in town.

Van was a Chev and maybe Saginaw or Mincie......both long gone.
So..rather than spend days "dicking around".
WHAT DO I NEED....
What engine mounts do I need...I seam to recall the commy ones will not fit HT??
Extractors are sorted (VN heads).

For Sale

After eight years and sixty thousand keys, it’s time to sell the commie.
It was a shed car in Laidley when I picked it up. The first thing fitted was an electronic anti-rust system, then good old fashioned fisholine. So if you looking for a project car this will save you thousands at the panel beaters.
Being in a shed for 13 years all the rubbers had gone hard, so new suspension, engine/gearbox mounts, hoses ETC
The head has been converted to unleaded with stainless steel inserts, so you can convert to LPG.
Recently the radiator and brake master cylinder and booster have been replaced, with new front disks and pads.
It currently has 95000 klms.

UC Torana SLE steering wheel

I've got a mate chasing a UC Torana steering wheel. His preference is for the Tan colour but Brown would be OK.

Has anyone got one there willing to part with and if so how much.

Heater Core

G'Day Fellas,
That time of year again, Only just warm air coming out of vents. So I back and front washed out the core with high pressure washing, No Joy checked for air leaks. Is it possible for a high pressure washing not to clear the core? Or could it be something else I'm missing. Regards Texas

am to fm airchief conversions?

Hi,
Its time to get the Old Airchief sorted in the kingswood. Now this is an original working am radio but as I live in country NSW there isn't much I can pick up on AM any more.

What do most of you guys do? Do people mainly get their old radios to run FM? or do you leave it as is? Im trying to keep the car as original as possible and as it isn't a daily driver im not interested in hidden cd players, radios and 'such.

Any thoughts appreciated .
Also does anyone know the approx. cost to convert to FM and who does them?
Thanks in advance,
Alby

V6 Conversion on Wheels PRICE REDUCED!

Price Reduced to $750 (Need to get rid of it)

For Sale is my VT Commodore, has been my daily for the last 7 Years and has been ultra reliable. Unfortunately the heater core has died and it was not worth paying to repair it: Hence Sale as V6 Conversion Car.

Car Has done 299Kms, I service it myself, engine oil and filter every 10K and Transmission Filter and Fluid every 50K.

Only thing the car is coming without is a battery, but I can assist with one to borrow to put her on a trailer.

Holden HQ Ute with 173 Red Motor, Best power options?

Hey, I have a Holden HQ Ute I recently brought 3 weeks ago. I'm on my P1s so I can't exactly chuck a V8 in it at the moment, I want to get the most power I can while maintain a decent fuel economy below 12 - 14 liters per 100km. My 173 has cracked a piston in it's life, and had them all replaced with ACL Race Pistons I was told. My motor has only done 50,000kms since rebuild.

I currently have

173 Red Motor Stock
3 Speed T Bar Traumatic
3.55 Banjo Limited Slip Diff

Everything else is stock, I currently get 15-17 Liters per 100km (Something has to be wrong)

I got my Ute fully inspected by my local mechanic, My 1st cylinder currently has a small lack of compression (Must be valves). He said it's nothing to worry about (Which I think is stupid)
