Scraping noise when turning

Hi I was looking for some advice, My Fx ute makes a scpaping noise in the back wheels, it sounds like something scaping every revolution of the wheel and it gets worse when I tun around a corner. The freaky thing is it can stop when I put my foot on the clutch. It has original drums and running gear, does anyone have any idea what what is causing it?

HJ Owner - but after some help with VX Commodore (And no - don't want to post at JustCommodores"

Hey Guys
HJ Pano owner here... and i know i'm asking about a commodore - but seeing as though i'm a loyal Old Holden Fan i thought i might be able to??

Anyway, i'll be honest. Not really mechanically minded but wondering if someone could help! I'm prepared to travel, but live in the Narre Warren/Dandenong area.
Anyway... just bought a VX Commodore Wagon with 140ks on it. Seems/Looks/Drives all right... but for arguments sake i got it serviced at my local Holden Dealership to get them to go over it.

Replacing EFI setup on VK 3.3 with carby setup?

Hi all, I know that usually people are trying to move forward with engine mods and in some cases they fit the EFI gear off a VK 3.3 onto their red six etc.

I want to go the other way and REMOVE all the efi gear from my VK 3.3 and revert back to carby (motor will be used in an older themed car)

Is this relatively straight forward?

Obviously I'd have to source the carby and manifold but are the VK EFI 12 port heads pretty much the same as the 12 port heads in earlier carby cars? Or is there something majorly different with the efi motors that stops you from reverting to carby?

HZ ute

Hello,

I'm looking at possibly buying a HZ ute. It has some rust in it, but the one spot that I'm most concerned about is under the chrome trim on the drivers side front window. How hard would this be to fix. It's only a cheap ute and was only wanting to spend minimal amount of $'s on it. I don't have any pics of it, just looking at a genaral guess from the experts here.

diff centre ok?

Hi guy's, i'm new to this site, be gentle. I am looking to get highway speed out of my HR. it is a 186 3spd manual with 14" tyres. i dont have a tacho but its reving pretty hard at 95-100ks. i'm not a racer so i was thinking of putting a 2.78centre in it as they seem to be easier to get than 3.08. i know i will be slower off the mark but i'm also after a bit longer 1st gear. would you guy's agree that this would be ok in stop start traffic?
