commodore help

Vk sedan 3.08 disk rear end (taken from a vh commodore) coupled with a stock 202 engine and transmission from same vh commodore, Now i dont like the varajet carbys so i threw it out and i put on a 2 barrel 350 holley on it (dont know what jets) now what i would like is a smaller carby like the stromberg or something
but everytime i go to look for one i get confused, at the moment the 202 has the stock inlet with the adaptor plate ( and i cant seam to get it to runn without dying) thats the reson for my choice in other carbys

Now please what carbys are available for the stock 202 other than the varajet (no ford mods please) any help woul be appreciated
if anyone has a decent carby for sale that would help me out that would really be appreciated

My neighbour is thinking of selling me a red 6 inlet manifold with twin stromberg carbs on it.It has been sitting in his shed for close to 30 years,so needs a serious cleanup and 2x carbie kits thru it....

Whats a reasonable I price would expect to pay for it (I don`t want to under pay him too much as he does the odd handyman job around my house for me?)

Many thanks

4 door lj project up for grabs

Sad to see this go but too many projects on the go. This will make a great finishing project not a lot of work to have a nice sitting 4 door LJ up and running in a short period of time.

I am neck deep in a 55 chev restore so I may be interested in a swap with something of this ilk.

Would sell either as a roller or with the drive train outlined below. At this stage I am open to offers as I don’t have a firm price in mind. I may sell drive train separately but only if I get a sale for the roller first

Roller

Stacks

Relayed from elsewhere ...

I'm trying to do some research on the old Stack's Holden dealership near Woolloomooloo that use to also sell at lot of American muscle cars in the late 1960s. There is very little on the net about it. As a kid, I can remember seeing lot's of Holden's with the metal Stack's badge on the bootlid.
