LS1_Tonner

Hi All, Another year done, Hope we all have a good and safe 2010.
I am in Perth, and have an HZ Tonner with an LS1 and 6spd, at the moment has the standard diff(3.08 I think)which is way to tall for the 6spd. Does any body out there have at least a 3.55, or some info on another diff to fit. need to have something freighted to WA. Can't seem to find much here.
Cheers
Neville-LS1_Tonner

Powerglide to Manual

Guys and Girls
Thinking of changing the powerglide out of the GTS 307 and replacing it with a manual box. The auto is ok but would prefer the drivability of a manual. Was thinking of putting in a T5 to give a good cruising 5th gear. Any thoughts, anyone done this, CRS bellhousing kit? not sure what I'll need

I removed the plugs of my stock 202 head and went to put them in my yella terra head but they wouldnt go in? Does the yella terra head take a different threaded plug? If so what ones do I get?

HT 6cyl powerglide to V8 trimatic

I am about to remove a six from my HT (202 with column shift powerglide) to install a V8 (VL commodore 308 + early V8 trimatic with drivers side shift linkage).

Now what is the easiest way to set up the shift linkage as the 6cyl powerglide linkage is on the passenger side (has a rod that goes from drivers side to passenger side of trans). Do I need to buy the V8 shift linkages?

Also, what is the easiest way to set up the cable kickdown as I also don't have the V8 brackets etc for this either?

Thanks
Paul

lowering a ht

Hey all,?
whats involved in lowering the front of a ht ?
is it as simple as shorter springs and shocks or do you need to get involved in off-set control arm bushes and camber kits?
will putting lowering blocks in the arse give me a too rough a ride or should i get lowered leafs?

WTB: 1 x Hotwire rim 14x7 suit HQ-HZ, in Perth

G'day guys

Have a set of hotwire rims for my Stato but one is suspect (the bolt holes have half the meat in them than the others and I have to use 3 washers on the mag nuts just so the nuts dont bottom out before it pulles the rim tight!) Lesson lernt for me, when buying something out of the paper look at it then check it again, this one slipped through, Doh.

So if any one in perth has a 14x7 hotwire rim they can part with preferably in Perth to suit a HQ-HZ please email me on fletch350308 @ hotmail.com (minus the spaces)

Cheers

Fletch
