HG MONARO

Gday All,
unfortunately for me im not up to speed with the technical side of old holdens but being the monaro lover that i am , recently i was offered to buy a friend of a friends HG 1971 monaro coupe, dressed up as a GTS. it looks to be in amazing condition. among other information, i have contacted her for the body/chassis numbers and she tells me that they are
"HG31522M"

after researching the net ive found that the body/chassis should start with a 8.. i.e 80337GJ1 ETC... and is Located stamped on a plate attached to the right hand side of the firewall. i passed this information on but she insists that the numbers are what she has provided.

at present i am unable to view the car in person

Question for Andrew /STREETNEAT

Gidday Andrew,
I was going through the build of your ute today so I can get an idea of what you did with your rear wheel set-up.
I am getting a nine inch built and the fella has asked me to provide what wheels and tyres I want, so I thought I'd update from the 14x7 Hustlers and go to 15inch rims. I read that you have 15x8 Welds on the rear with a 3 1/2 inch backspace and a 26inch tyre. Does this wheel/tyre combo interfere with any bodywork or have you massaged the tubbs? (I didn't find any reference to you tubbing the ute or how much you lowered it)
Are your brakes standard HK drums?

V8 HQ Parts for sale

I am selling off the last of my HQ Ute parts to fund my new HT project but am not sure what things are worth. I'm always told that they are worth a bit but how much people are willing to pay is a different story and whether they are even worth trying to sell. Can anyone help with some starting prices

Which Spark Plug?

Hi all, couldnt find the info anywhere, so ill ask here. Its a no brainer i guess for some but im struggling a little.

I have a 253 from a WB and im upgrading to HEI Distributor. The distributor is a Bosch from VK. Do i now use VK plugs? If so, i was going to go with the Bosch HR9BPY Platinum's, are these a suitable plug?

I do however, know that i have to use good plugs and the gap is set to 1.5 and a HEC716 coil. I hope this is correct?

Thanks
Greg

Power steering conversion

Hi all, just got a HX Kingy with a 253 in it and I'm looking to restore it. Don't know much atm but am definitely willing to learn, so I imagine I'll be using this place a fair bit in the coming future =P

I was wondering, how difficult is it to put power steering into this? Would it be the same, no matter whether I get the parts from a HQ or a HZ? I've got tools, an Ellery's and time so if there's any gudies or anything out there, some points in the right direction would be much appreciated!
