steering

Hi Holdeners
A question about my 16.7 steering box when turning right hand down stationary there is notching every 2 inches but not on left hand down. Minimal slop in the steering when rocking the wheel left to right. A steering place tells me if it were to be a box problem it would happen both left and right, any thoughts. (non power steer) Thanks Jeff

Hq-wb front disc/diff question

Hi all,
I'm looking into building a hotrod project and have a few questions.. I've looked thru Holdenpaedia and past posts with no luck.

The front discs on a HQ-WB.. are they the same for a 6cyl or V8? Some of the people I've been asking are telling me the discs are thicker on a V8???

At which year or model did the Salisbury diff change from coarse spline to the fine spline?
What is s "small" salisbury, as opposed to a "large" salisbury? Is this a reference to the diff ratio or number of axel splines or the tailshaft yoke size or..?

Transmission cooler lines - are 6cyl and V8 different lengths on the passenger side?

Hi there - I am putting a V8 HQ Chev radiator into my ute with a 6 cylinder 202 engine. I have noticed that on the bottom tank of the V8 radiator that the auto transmission cooler inlet/outlet thingys are further apart than the 6 cyl radiator. So does this mean I need to get a V8 transmission line for the passenger side to go into the bottom radiator tank? Thanks Ken.
P.S will the lines off a V8 VB-VH Commodore work?

So the Commodore is to be exported to the US again. About time

Let's hope that when the export program starts the US unions don't send GM bankrupt again.

I've read a few US forums on the G8 and the Caprice police vehicle. They LOVE them. The modification potential of the Commodore/G8 is well realised. The Caprice is also well respected in its' market but many forums state the dealers just can't get any allocated to them. There are far too few exported.

Water sitting in block - 308

Hi All,
Long time no see. I've been Holdenless for quite a few years now, but recently bought a 308 powered jet boat.

Anyway I've been doing some work on the engine and had to pull the heads off. Prior to doing anything I dropped water out of the block by disconnecting the hose that goes to where the lower radiator hose would normally go ... water came out as expected.

should engine sit dead straight?

hi all another silly question was looking at my 350 chev engine in my hg and noticed it sits on an angle.the front of the engine sits about and inch off centre towards the passenger side is this normal? Or is it an optical illusion i'm going off the balancer's bolt lining up with the centre beam of the subframe which is where i noticed it looks out.
thanks in advance
