Rear Drum brake cylinder

Just hoping someone could help with some clarification on what brake cylinder I should use.
We have changed the front to disc brake and when googleing for a new wheel cylinder I realised that I might have to now change to a different wheel cylinder. If this is the case what size will I now need and is there anything else that will need to be different i.e brake shoes,springs...

hk/t/g subframe and crossmember questions

Ok so i currently own a hk premier that has been hit in the front and damaged my subframe. I have found myself a HG Premier with a mint subframe and am looking at buying the whole car. I have done hours of research and the only bit of info i can find explaining the differences between HK and HG subframes states "HK'S HAVE THE GEARBOX BOLT TO THE FLOORPAN WHERE HT'S AND HG'S BOLT TO TWO RAILS THAT EXTEND FROM THE INNER "Y" FRAME SECTION. THIS WAS PUT IN THESE LATER MODELS FOR THE CRASH ZONE.

storing the old girl for a few months

G'day folks
Will be going to Bali for about four months so have to store the ute. Wondering if there is anything in particular I should do for it?
Will be parked at a mates place, I was just going to cover it but he reckons he'll make room in a shed, which is great!
Shed is big and has three sides closed in. My water pump is a bit shot but have had a different car to drive lately. Might have to wait until I get back. I guess kicking it over and running it once a week is a good idea?

Having a rant.

Did anyone get the Cloes junk mail this week?
The back page is devoted some of the greatest advertising b*llsh!t I've ever seen.
Basically it says that from now on all the beef Coles sell will be 100% Australian and hormone free.
......The truth of the matter is that every piece of beef sold in Australia, no matter where or who sells it, is Australian. We DO NOT import any beef. Hormones HAVE NOT been used in Australian beef for 20 years.
Then they go on to say that this ANNOUNCEMENT has been years in the planning and cost them ten of millions of dollars. Note that are talking about the announcement, not the setting up the supply of Australian hormeone free beef.

Ripped off? Is this a 350 holley??

I'm convinced I've bought a dodgy carbie...

I was told this is a 350 Holley when i bought it 2 days ago, and it fits on the Redline Torker II manifold fine... however, it doesn't look right, I've attached a picture, if anyone knows what it is, please let me know!!

Thanks.

Eddie

Wheel offset

G'day guys, I've had a bit of a search around but I can't find what I need. Does anybody know what the standard wheel offset for a VH is? What are the offsets for newer model commodores?
Has anybody here put 18s on their VH? any issues?

Cheers

Rocker Arm Pivot *SNAP*

Hi Guys, I am in the process of putting a blue 202 back together.
I put the cylinder head on, and while loosening one of the rocker arm pivot bolts, the rocker arm pivot snapped (thing that looks like a bridge _|-|_).

Not sure whether this would be something that you can buy new, wouldnt have thought they would break too often. Looking at where it snapped it looks like a [Naughty Pottyword] casting.

So can I get a new one anywhere and are the red/black ones different ?

Cheers.

Racing harness installation

Hi All, Does anyone know the best anchor points for the shoulder straps for a 6 point harness in a HQ-WB sedan? I know the proper way is the use a cross beam of a roll cage but as i dont have one yet so my only two options are straight down with two new holes in the floor with large plates on the outside or the way i would like to do, straight back using an existing seat belt point and a new point in the parcel shelf.
Thanks for any help, James.

Bloody locusts

Just a bit of a warning for anyone driving Melbourne to Adelaide, there is still locusts everywhere. Arrived home Tuesday night and the front of my friends car that we drove over in is showing more locust than paint! The radiator and transmission cooler are completely covered aswell so anyone planning the drive should certainlyh invest in some mesh to cover the grille to prevent this from happening.

Recommended thermo fan mod for HT

Hey all,

May I start my first post with saying how awesome this forum is!!! I cant seem to leave!! Anyways, down to business....

I have a HT ute with a 350 chev that Im currently building and need to know your thoughts as to what thermo fans are easily modified/installed in front of a (what I believe) Holden V8 radiator

I bought a mint pair of VX Statesman fans off ebay for 30 bucks but by the time I did all the necessary cuttting etc to make them fit, they just looked terrible!! Im not so concerned about it cos I got em so cheap but I wanna know what other guys out there are running.
EL or AU twins seem to be the go for HQ-HX, is this also the case for HT's

Any advice would be fantastic as this is the trickiest thing I have left to do, the rest is just wiring and fuel.
