spark plugs and ipods??

A couple of weeks ago I made the change from a points dizzy to an electronic, upgrading the plugs and leads as well. I was given a set of NGK BP5Y(?) the ones with the new grooved electrode, by the auto outlet.

I was dubious about using them, given the suss electrode design, and as no alternative was available, I just thought bugger it and threw them in as I was in a hurry. They seemed to perform ok.

I was also using a Kensington FM transmitter to power my Ipod, and it worked a treat as usual.

I need info on value of a few cars.....Just rough numbers. Please!

Hi All, I've been trying to get a rough idea of values of a few cars that I have come into possession of, I tried posting in a differant thread but to no avail. Anyway i was wondering if you guys could give me an idea of value on the following models just with the bare details, maybe give a minimum to maximum priceing, from rusted shell to roadworthy condition. All the models are in varying conditions so I give a brief description of each, I'll try to get photo's later but now, I just need a rough idea of values so I can work out which ones I will part with and which I will keep, at this stage none are for sale...you can offer... I will consider... but really there not for sale so to speak.. I'm located in Central NSW for those who may be interested in offering.

Roller Rocker Noise??

Hey Crew,
I just fitted Roller rockers and new Hardened push rods to a 202. I set the Valve clearance as standard for a holden 202, think it was about .oo27" for Exh and .0015" for inlet. I got from a HJ workshop manual.
OK now the question, Is it normal for roller rockers to be noisey?? it's not a knocking noise or anything like that it's kinda like a swishing noise, if ya know what i mean. My oil pressure is still around 300kpa and it rev climbs fine it's just that swishing noise that i'm not sure about.
look forward to hearing from yas

2 things

hey all

i have 2 questions for you today:

i have a hq one tonner, the drivers door seems to drop down after being opened and to close it again has to be either held up whilst closing it or be slammed shut. i was told that it had been in a front on collision ( nothing serious) and this could be the cause as the panels would be slightly out of place. but the panels seem to be fine a bit of rust here and there but thats it it doesnt seem out of place.
is this easy to fix?

hq-wb door chrome moulds

i have a statesman and a standard door on the hz 1 tonner im fixing up. the statesman one has the little stud things to attach the chrome things around the top of the door, the standard one doesn't.
im not to kean on grinding them off because once there off there off, but i dont want to drive around with 1 door with chromes and the other bare, or studs without chromes on them.

is it possible to fit studs to the other door to put chromes on it aswell? im thinking things you drill a tiny hole and they screw into it or something.

Power Steering help needed

Hi all are there any power steering experts on this site ? I've just got the van going today (put in a 5L from a VQ stato) Any how I toped up the power steering fluid and it is running out the bottom of the pump. It's to hot in the shed too pull it out right now. So the question is can the pump from the VQ be used in the WB ? P/S does any body have a spare HQ to WB power steer pump in the Ipswich or south Brisbane area. Cheers Manky

186 lifter change/ rocker cover question

G'day.. i have a dodgey lifter in my 186, no6 exhaust one, i have a new set of lifters in the shed and was just wondering if its as easy as it seems? im thinking just take the rocker off, lift out the push rod, rip off the side plate and hopefully just slide the lifter out? and the new one in?
i've read that thy can get stuck in there sometimes. any tips?

also one other question, does anybody know if those black aftermarket rocker covers are taller than the cheap chrome ones?

thanks

HHO SYstem

HHO systems can work but it becomes very complicated. You not only have to deal with the concentration of elctrolyte but the temp. At high amps over 100 it produced heaps of H2 somewhere in the vicinity of 6-10 liters a minute or more. but the water get to near boiling and so does the wiring that delivering the power to the unit.
