TH400/350 column shift

Hi all,
I want to keep the column shift in my HJ wagon which I'm doing a LS1 and 4 speed auto conversion. I've tried using a cable but it doesn't feel right (sloppy). Has anyone got a standard linkage setup to suit a TH400/350? And does anyone know if it'll work on a TH700/4L60E 4 speed auto?

Help with lift pump selection.

Hi,
I'm in the process of a fuel injected conversion on the HJ ute. I intend to use 1 x Bosch 044 that will meet the HP supply but I have no idea what to order with respect to the LP side of things?
Do I just simply match the flow rate of the lift pump to that of the HP pump?
I would appreciate any comments.
Thanks, Nathan

Blue 202 carbies..

I have sold my HJ sedan and bought a WB ute. It has a blue 202/3.3 and I am having issues with the factory carby. I have heard people rave about a weber progressive dual throat carbie, not only increases efficiency, but easier to tune, good for power when the second butterfly opens etc. Apparently it was standard on two liter fords etc but is fine for the 202.

Has anybody got any advice about this conversion, know where I would get a weber jetted right for the 202 and adaptors, etc?

Camshaft identification

Good day, OH'ers.
I have just removed the heads and camshaft from my 253, which I bought "used" a couple of years ago. At that time the seller told me the engine had a modified camshaft in it, although he didn't know how much. Since then, other people who have heard the engine when it was running, have also commented that it "had a cam". From the attachment, could someone identify the markings?
Thanks for the information,
Richard.

(Streetneat moved thread)- steering in FC.


Steering question moved here.

The WOF thing is actually a life saver as I discovered quite recently. Despite doing regular checks - stuff can get missed. My FC Coupe just had a WOF and while it was over the pit I discovered the steering box was slightly loose, two split pins had broken and where missing from the drag link - as a result of the loosening steering box.

What had happened was the dog washers behind the nuts on the steering box mount had shattered and fallen away - after that the nuts could work loose. This was discovered only because I took the car to a different garage for its WOF - one with a pit. By wiggling the wheel with the weight of the car on the steering we could see movement.

Which is better bendigo or ballarat???

So thinking of going down for the bendigo swap in a week or two, but have been told by others the super southern swap at ballarat in feb is better for HQ stuff, so not sure if ill hold off till then.
So whats peoples experiences? is there a good range of HQ stuff there, seems alot of the meets I've been to lately have bugger all for the HQ, always seems to be too much ford junk..

also any free camping around either towns, with 2wd access.

thanks
kevin
