hacking up the floor pan

Hey all,
I want to fit a 5 speed behind a rb motor to my ute. Problem is the gear box is quite long and looking at the tape measure i'm going to be doing a fair bit of cutting where the gearshift comes through? Is there an alternative or have I got my ball park measurements wrong?
I'm scared i'll be having to remove the seat mounting member around the tunnel part.

rubbers

Hello, I am after some info on the rubber stoppers that go between the mudguards and the panel that the backrest of the rear seat sits against when it is in the upright position on a HQ wagon.
The rubbers in question are bolted through the wheel arch. Mine are neary non existant so I have no idea what they looked like.
Would anyone have a parts book with a diagram that they could post up here?
I have tried a couple of rubber suppliers at a swap meet, but no luck. cheers, Veeman.

Help! I can't get the engine to start

Hi All,

I have just replaced the head in my HQ & can't get it to start. Turns over beautifully & I can smell a bit of gas so I guess its either the timing or ignition.

I followed the TDC timing guide as follows: Once the #1inlet valve has bobbed down then up again, I kept winding the balancer around until its mark met with the 6 mark on the timing cover & matched the dizzy rotor mark to the scribe mark on the dizzy body. From that point I fed that terminal to sparkplug #1 & timed it to the order: 153624 off that.

Oil capacity for Toyota w55 Transmission?

Hello blokes,

Could someone please advise how much oil I have to put into my Toyota W55 gearbox? (It's behind a 186 red motor.)

I know it sounds silly to ask, but I already did what I thought was the right thing, and filled it up to the lower edge of the filler plug, and on a recent run from Melbourne to Sydney, it spewed out across the floor-pan and everything else......

I don't want to overfill it again, and I certainly don't want to under-fill it and risk a seizure..

temperature gauge...

Hi all,

I have a WB with a fairly recently reco'd 202/3.3. The temp gauge is working, but reads way off the scale to the cool side, in that it moves a few mm towards center and stops before it hits any gauge markings as it heats up.

The 202 has a V8 radiator and is hot to touch when running. Is the gauge bung and reading out of scale or would a 202 w/ 3 core rad normally read very cool?

Also, anyone know who has secondhand smiths gauges in Melbourne? Preparing for a long trip and sorting out the reassuring aspects.

Clutch Options for the ol girl

A few yrs ago my clutch was on the way out and my mechanic replaced the master cylinder.

12 mths later she went again and was replaced under warranty... and now 12mths later again she has gone again.

So before I send her back do I have any other options for it as I dont want too have it replaced again to be in same position again this time next yr.

Cheers
