Renovation

Hi guys, I have just purchased a very unloved HJ ute which runs on gas and petrol, it has already been lowered. I am looking for ideas/specs for renovation. Firstly I want to use the ute daily so I need it to be user friendly not to lumpy.
What engine mods can you recomend, ie cam,heads,carby,dizzy.
It presently has not got power stearing can that be fitted and from which model can it be canibalised is it advisable to fit the whole front end and suspension from another model.

info about SWEET FXHG MONARO RESTORATION, (GARY)

Hi Gary the ownwer of the SWEET FXHG MONARO RESTORATION photo album.

Gary, I see in your engine bay album that on your 186S manifold that there is a bracket for the return spring.
What I need to know is, is that spring bracket factory ???
and if so do you have another one lying around for sale.
if you check out my album Yogies HR you will see the type that I have. I dont think this is factory.

its good!

Well I just got my HQ 1 tonner back on the road again after about a month of finding things out the hard way of installing a new motor(202) power stearing box and 5 speed gearbox conversion in tandem with replacing the old single headlight front end with the dual twin light prem front end and countless battles with the wife
Sure I know its way down on the lower end of the food chain but when your a 1st timer like me and have only a few clues to what goes where,you feel pretty darn good when you cruise past your mates [Naughty Pottyword]ty jappas and rubber band engine rotarys and see them all turn heads as the beasty HQ cruises past its a bloody rush!

Help

Hi all, bought my HZ recently and have a quiery about my block, I have been told that if it were a GM (308) that I would be able to stick my hand between the water pump and the block and that if it were a chev the water pump would be mounted to the block, my water pump being mounted to the block I wanted to find out what block it was and have been told that it's the other way round, eg, can stick hand between water pump & block on chev not holden.
can someone clarify for me please?
Cheers

turbo,blower,carb or nitrous

ey all,
Just putting my 2 bobs worth on 70 UTES poll on blowers,carbs,gas and turbo's. I see no one voted for nitrous, y is that, I run a 100 shot of N.O.S. in my 6 cyl manual eh ute. People think that it will blow up ur engine and wear it out sooner but there wrong , u just have to know how to set it up and use it safely as in not being to greedy and knowing how much ur engine can take.ok say u have ur tipical red 6 hottie with a balance, head, cam, a set of carbs and electronic dizzy. Say it run 15.00 at the 1/4 mile , it will be a bit of a pig to drive in traffic and the heat, but u can still cruise on the week ends. And now u want it to run high 13's or low 14's u put on 50-75 or 100 shot of gas and get that when u want and be able to still drive it everyday in oppisite of doing more engine mods to get that quik and thats going to be 3 times more in price than gas like a stroker kit and the like, and then it will be the biggest of a pain in the ass to cruise in because it wont run on pump fuel and it don't idle because of the bull[Naughty Pottyword] cam u have to run, and un like gas u can't just turn it off when u don't want it and go back to normal. my ute runs 14.8 @92 and 13.4@101 with gas. I bought my gas kit from vpw u can see them online at www.vpwmailorder.com it cost me all up about $800. SO I set a challege if ne one can beat that gain of that time for that price. If ne one whats ne more info on setting it up just ask, I want to see more old holdens flying on gas because it feels like u got the power of second in top gear.
