Shortening axles

Hello out there,I was wondering if anyone knows of a reputable differential / machine shop in Vict that cuts and resplines axles.I have a set of 1 ton axles that I believe can be cut and splined to suit a torana banjo, so I can fit HQ brakes / wheels.

All help / suggestions welcomed.

Thanks.

Exhaust tape?

What is the consensus view on exhaust header wrap/tape?

I'm keen to use it for 2 different reasons:

1. My new LPG carb air cleaner can't be easily ducted for cold-air intake, so I'm looking to reduce radiant heat from extractors.

2. It'd be good to cut the resonant noise from the pipe work under the hood - thinner extractor tubing being noisier than the standard cast manifold.

I'm trying to tackle as many little issues as possible, while the HK is off the road and currently gutted....

Ta for any tips!

Michael o' Brisvale.

HG Ignition Barrel...again!

Does anyone have an idea as to why the HG ignition barrel will not turn back to ACC? I have tried to get it to move, with pliers, grips, screwdrivers etc. Have had wire in little hole, barrel turns without key in it so I was wondering if maybe the key was not original so it won't go back to ACC. Key also will not lock unlock glovebox which is why I have this sneaking suspicion.Otherwise how do you remove the whole lot?

Anything helpful would be great.

8cyl Trimatic; Tbar to Column changeover

Hi All,

I need some help and advice;

Putting a 308/trimatic into WB with 202/trimatic. New Trimatic box has Tbar and LHS linkage(trans is out of commodore VH), new trans has a plug on RHS, can the linkage be swapped easily? Heard some conflicting versions of how it can be done.

Apparenetly dropping the pan cover off and swapping the 'selector' gear or something is all it takes? And then the Exhaust specialist told me I would need some special linkage kit if I had an original 8cyl auto linkage.. to get clearance or something.. Can anyone verify?

8 Cyl trimatic - Tbar to column shift swap - help!

Hi All,

I need some help, hoping someone can shed some light for me. Got a 308 and traumatic trans going into my WB (formerly 202 + trimatic) with column shift, the new trimatic has a tbar, ive been told conflicting stories about how it can be done, and to take the cake apparently it needs to clear the extractors somehow. AN exhaust specialist I spoke to says he would use a kit for the auto trans linkage to replace original v8 trimatic linkages, allowing clearance. Umm.. Would be most appreciated if someone could verify this?

Any MAZDA guys out there..?

I've found a 1st car for my 17yo daughter. It's an '81 Mazda 626. Yes it's old, but it's cheap.
New: tyres, windscreen, battery, radiator, top bottom hoses..etc.. 127,000k's.
Private sale, 3mths reg and (the good bit) RWC.. $1600... ready to go. (I'm hoping to knock him down further).

We've rung around and can get insurance, not easy considering ages of the car and owner.

Sunday evening query...

Put your thinking caps on fellas..

Sounds silly I know, but does anyone remember a remote control Monaro (like the one in the pic)?
It was back in the mid 70's, the owner's name was Neil Vickery. He was on the Don Lane Show about the same time with his Monaro. Neil was an electronics wizz, and he rigged up a walkey-talkey to communicate with the car...it drove itself. This guy lived around Chelsea area (Vic).

Magnets

Was reading an article in an overseas mag about magnetic sump plugs. Does anyone know if they're still available for red engine sumps? If not avail the article suggested putting a magnet on the outside of the oil filter. Sounded like a reasonable idea, anyone done it or have thoughts?
