Lx Hatch and engine

Hi All

Looking at buying a Lx ss l31 hatch but have a few concerns to how much a few things de value a car very interested on your thoughts.

the car checks out matching chasy and tags all tags present and GMH certificate.

negative points

Tags have been cleaned and polished the main tag showing alot of rounding and smoothness on the stamp altough still clear to read ( how does this effect the value of the car)

Engine has been changed i think it should have a HT prefix but has a 308 h 25#### number

All else is smick trim paint ect.

Bosch HEI wiring

Thanks to Reapers nice HEI installation guide and the info here on holdenpaedia I have put HEI on the Premier wagon. After a few problems trying to work out where the timing was (Not lined up on the balancer mark any more) I finally got the thing started again. Now it won't turn off from the key. Must have messed something up somewhere. Had to stick my hand over the carb to kill it. (I know old red motors never die, but this is ridiculous!).

w50 for sale wa

Gday

Swapping out my w50 with a w58 so I'm selling the w50.

Approximately a year ago/2000km it had new timken bearings put in throughout. Synchros all working. It has a slight whine but not clunky. Previous owner towed in fifth n spun the gear on the spigot which was professionally repaired and works well still. Comes with bellhousing for traumatic 253/308 and clutch fork. Bellhousing is missing the pivot ball because my w58 one is missing.

Leave ur email if ur interested

chassi to be sandblasted

Hi all,

I'm looking for some where to get a chassi sand blasted. Has anyone used any blasters in the Frankston area that they have been happy or unhappy with?

A friend got his done in Moorabin, i'm thinking local may be easier for me and cost less in tranport.

Cheers

Ben
