V8 Swap Advice and Opinions

Hi all,

Im looking for some advice regarding a v8 swap i want to do in my hq ute. It currently runs a 202 with 4 speed, and i am looking at either a 253, 308 or 304 to swap. This ute is my daily drive, so i want something reasonable on economy, i do mostly highway driving. I dont want to spend anything more than 5k and am aiming for a fly wheel horsepower of around 300-350, nice to cruise in with some punch when i want it. I dont mind a full rebuild as it would be good experience.

HG VAN AND UTE

Hi all.
I have a HG Van needing full resto and a HG Ute in very good original unrestored condition. The ute only needs a general tidy up.
I need a bench seat and door trims (Antique Gold Interior?) for the van. I bought a prem for spares a long time ago, to get the bucket seats and door trims as the Seating Capacity shows 2. However the trim code is Antique Gold with a bench seat suffix. 1801-11A. Incorrectly stamped when the ADR plate was attached. I have the buckets and rear seat from the prem (sedan) as well as the front and rear door trims.
It has 186/trimatic but should be 161 3 on the tree. I also need a 161 and manual bell housing, clutch linkages and gear linkages to go on the subframes. Also have a few spares to swap or trade.

LH,LX&UC parts

Hi all, I'm getting rid of all my left over Torana parts that have accumulated over the years following a resto. Too many items to list so if your after something from the LH-UC range of Torana's let me know and I'll see if I have it. As well as bits and pieces I have a UC sedan shell that has good floors, sills and turret and I'm happy for you to purchase cuts for rust/accident repairs. I'm in Moss Vale, that's approx 120 k south of Sydney. I'm happy to have people come and have a look, package items for post and or courier.

Monaro Dash Finally In!!

After sitting idle for around ten years am starting to finally see light at the end of the tunnel. For those young folk at home it is a possibly the stupidest thing you can do, that is, strip every wire from your car and think it wont be that hard to rewire it. Also, installed a Cube short shifter onto the 5 speed box which eliminates issues with keeping the bench seat.
