Street Machine article on water pumps

I seem to recollect reading an article in Street Machine magazine some time ago about performance of water pumps.
Does anyone know which edition it was in?

253 original pistons

i have not until yesterday, seen an original 253 dome piston.

a customer brought me in a 253 from a hz 3 speed ute, he only pulled it down as all the gaskets had gone hard and she was leaking oil. it was dead stock - i have seen std bore 253's before but the ones i had seen had acl or similar replacement pistons that were flat tops.

this thing is about as good as it can get - very very minor lip in some of the bores only, std crank sizes with std holden copper colour bearings (he had thought it was worn due to the copper colour) std shim gaskets etc etc.

Patty Duke RIP

Seems that as you grow up, you grow up remembering names of actors and shows you watched as a kid. When getting older, those same names you watched, and maybe some of the female actor's you had a crush on, pass away. Brings a person back to reality that we are getting older. Patty Duke, RIP.

sludge

I went to the wreckers today after a central locking actuator and lock assembly for my daughters Focus.

I saw an efi VK that had been pretty well picked over. The rocker cover had been unbolted by someone else, but this was what the top of the engine looked like. I wonder why the other bloke walked away.

cheers Jim

Garage of Awesome LHD HR

Here at Garage of Awesome, we like old Holdens, but seldom do we feel the urge to own one. They’re just too common. Owners will tell you that such cars are getting rare and they are, but when anywhere between 150,000 and 485,000 were built depending on the model, rare is a relative term. When a car is unrestored, 45 years old and one of 133 ever sold… that’s rare. Come and see us when this applies.

Why Our Insurance Premiums Are So High?

Image: 

Wondering why your insurance is expensive?

I thought I'd check the Mazda spares dept for 2x bumper-fender brackets and 2x bumper reinforcements. Thought maybe $40 each tops.

There's a real market for someone enterprising here.

No more Holden's, Ford's or Toyota's

Some off you enthusiasts may have already heard about this so I'm sorry if it's old news.
Ford [yes I know it's a four letter word] is to cease building LTD's Fairlaine's, Falcons and their derivatives [Wagon and Utes] in Australia next year. same for Toyota with the Aurion and Camry. But the worst is that Holden will stop making the Commodore! Apparently the next Commodore will be an imported Opel. It gets worse, no V8 and it will be front wheel drive.
