Turbo 400

Gday guys

What would I expect to pay for a used standard turbo 400 that I'm told is fine? It seems to look in good condition..

Thanks

Power Drain

Ten years and two days on the site... so I figured I would ask a question for the electrical/LPG guys out there.

I have a WB ute on LPG, and it has a wiring fault.

When I removed the head unit, the car no longer started. I reconnected it and it still wouldn't go. Fuses are ok, wiring may be an issue in some areas. I have traced most of the wiring and it is as it should be, any splices or joins are solid and not broken. I am going to look further into it next week.

However, something is also draining the battery. Is it likely that the LPG mixer is drawing power when the car isn't running? There is no clock, the headlights are disconnected, the spotlights have been removed, and there is still something draining the battery.

Caming a straight gas 202

Hi there I have a hz one tonner with a red block 202 in it running on straight gas and I have been thinking about Putting a cam in. I just wanted to know if anyone had done it on a straight gas 202 and how it went after installing. I'm also going to replace the lifters and heavier duty valve springs. Is there anything else I should do or any other easy cheap mods to give me some horsepower ?? Cheers jacko

HQ pattern diff

On a torana which has had the HQ front brake upgrade, what's the best way (safest & cheapest) to get the rear axle pattern to HQ as well?

Or would it be best to go back to torana brakes on the front and have the torana pattern all round?

Cheers,

Emu

Air tight doors

I've had this problem forever now and thought I might throw it up as It's actually starting to annoy me.
Whilst driving with windows up (mostly above 80km/h) that terrible "windy" sound coming from around the doors. I've replaced the rubbers and it's definitely not coming from around the windows.
Has anyone else got/had this problem?
Remedies?
Or is this just what comes with old holdens?

Almost good enough to leave in.

Pulled the old 179 out yesterday, had a look at no3 caps, not bad I reckon! Considering I fitted them back in August 1996! Says a lot for regular oil changes... and, not thrashing it when cold.
Dropped (well, placed it gently) the new 202 in this morning, just giving the back a rest, should have it all going tomorrow, I have to take my youngest daughter to school on Monday.

HJ 1 Ton Body Reassembly

Hi there - I have an HJ 1 Ton with 253 which is being essentially rebuilt. It was meant to be just a rust repair but things got out of hand. I have now fully rebuilt the chassis so its like new. All panels have had all paint, bog and rust stripped off and the cab was sand blasted an epoxy primered. Its now time to try and put this body back together - and here is where my problems begin ...

Has anyone had to bolt all the panels and cab back together and get them fitting right and lined up? Seems ever single panel/part can move in 3 dimensions - forward, back, left/right or up/down. So whats the starting point? Even the radiator support can move to a certain extent.
