HA vauxhall engine swap

Hi guys I've recently aquired a Ha vauxhall and was wondering if anyone has ever owned one and upgraded the engine to the hb model of the same engine? I just want to know if everything is compatible before starting.
Thanks in advance Mark

Just putting it out there....

I know it's a long shot, but does anyone have an HR taxi rail they want to sell? I know they're made from unobtainium, but I could get lucky...

Thanks...... Tim.

Broken no.5 spark plug

Tips needed to remove a broken no.5 spark plug from a 253 in a UC. Clearance is a bit of an issue I've try everything I can think of. I even took off the driver's side header to give me more room. With no luck my next move is to remove the head or lift the engine up a bit. If any of you guys some tips for me please fire away.

Cheers Shane

P.S it's only the porcelain that's broken

Interesting Invoice

I just bought some gear from a reasonably well known Australian conversion supplies company.

Received a phone call confirming the order and advising me that I would have to pay 2.2% surcharge for using my credit card. Prepared to cop that even though I don't own a credit card only have a direct debit card but I understand the reasoning.

Asked about cost of freight and told that it would be about $40 to Brisbane and that they would look after me cost wise due to to size of the order.

Puzzled when the money went out of the account as it appeared a bit high. Got the gear and checked the invoice - Freight 80 plus GST and they even charged me $10.46 plus GST for the "packaging carton". AND not a cent off the gear.

WTF?

Are these guy's serious and it's damaged too.

Surely for that money you could buy an excellent full set of redone dash plastic.

Items to sell.

I have some items to sell!

Four cylinder engine from an early Torana.
I think it is a 1600cc engine and has a sidedraft CV carby.

Conversion kit including gearbox, clutch assembly, adaptor plate, engine mounts
and flywheel (approx 1.5 - 2 kg heavier than standard) for a Nissan Cabstar 5 speed gearbox to bolt onto a Holden red motor.

Emergency vehicle beacons, rotating type, like fitted to emergency vehicles in the circa 1970's. They do not have coloured lenses fitted.

Overdrive Trimatics

Has anyone ever heard of Volvos and Peugots using Holden Trimatics in the late 1970s with Laycock type overdrives? http://www.ozrodders... (third comment down)
Apparently they did. It was a way of satisfying the local content regulations.
The obvious thing to think next is, how hard would it be to either put a Volvo Trimatic with overdrive in a Trimatic gearboxed Holden, or, put the Volvo overdrive on the back of a Holden Trimatic?
Food for thought.
