Can you shorten the water pump?

Hi all,

I want to increase my cooling capacity by installing a 16" thermo fan on a new aluminium radiator. The problem is that the space between the back of the radiator and the water pump pulley is way too small. Does anyone have a suggestion for how to solve this?

At the moment I can only think of installing an electric water pump and removing the water pump impeller/pulley and welding up the hole (I think I need to keep the water pump housing). Is there a simpler alternative?

Thanks

Leigh

Me banjo broke!

Took off this morning, was doing a genteel 180 degree turn at the end of our street when it just went CHRUNCH.
It is, or was, a 3.08 LSD Banjo.
Luckily it didn't lock the wheels. Intact when I let the clutch out there's just a hint of forward power.
Something to do with the LSD bits went bling?
I didn't even give it any beanz.

Anyhow, does anyone on the brizzy area have a spare 3.08 or 3.36 banjo center lying around. Doesn't have to be LSD.

Apologies to all the spray painters out there!!

First and foremost I'm a back yarder who's (attempting) to restore a cascade green HG Kinga.

Over the last week or so, I've been prepping the panels for undercoat. I found out that I applied bog well and had a good eye and sanding technique - NOW, this is where I laugh at all those clowns who say 'All the hard work has been done' - Bullsh%t (fill the gap).

I hung the doors in my garage, and made a little spray booth, forgetting exactly how much air is generated by the gun and the fun began.

I got paint everywhere.

In my hair.
On the walls.
On the floor.
In every orifice you can think of...you get the picture. The result? My sanding wasn't that good and there are camels living under my paint job. (humps? get it?)

uc torana axles

I have a question about the axles in a UC torana. My son has just slid the car into a gutter and i'm trying to buy a axle however, its a disc brake rear end and the axles are as rare as hens teeth. My question is can I fit a drum brake axle into the disc brake setup if I change the studs or is the length too different. Its a little furstating because i keep getting conflicting information.

HZ Ignition Barrel & Key ~ Help & Information

Hi there,

Just wondering if I could get some help/information regarding the ignition barrel & key on my 1977 HZ Statesman Caprice.

The ignition barrel is the chrome type with two tags either side of the key and it has never turned fully to the "lock" position. The key will come out but you can then turn the ignition barrel back to the "on" position and start the car without the key!

When looking at the two types that are available for HQ to WB, it looks like my 1977 HZ Statesman Caprice has an HQ to HX type ingnition barrel? (chrome with two tags either side of the key). The other type avaiable for HZ to WB has one tag next to the key and is painted black.

hr subframe repairs

Still cutting rust out of my HR ute project.
Now moving onto the front subframe.

The outer legs on both sides are rusted up from where it bolts under the car to a length of about 350mm.

Looking at the subframe repair sections they will not be long enough to get rid of the rusted sections.

Not sure how these repair sections fit either, looking at them online from rare spares it seems they butt weld on only?

Anyone done this repair?

Dont suppose anyone in the Brissie area has a subframe without rust?
