Ignition Lock Troubles

Hey Guys

Just wanting to know if anyone can help with ignition problems.When you turn the key to start it has no recoil the key stays in the forward position.so I thought I might take it out & replace it with a new one,is it difficult to replace the ignition?
Thanks

OH Financial Members

After reading OH for a number of years and getting some great information to help with the HG ute, I was toying with further supporting the site through financial membership. Then I stumbled on the testamonials on the value of OH Stickers, that sold me on the value for money so I asked my better half for a financial membership for my birthday a couple of months ago.

Haven't heard anything since she did it and my car is getting slower and slower. Starting to panic that it might actually stop.

RB 30 into 1967 HR - Questions!

Hi all, i'm chasing some info on dropping a NA RB30 and auto box into my HR. Currently the HR has a 186 and power glide combo (also a disk brake front end). I'd like to stress that this is not a hunt for cheap horse power, i simply want to make my daily efficient and hassle free. While it looks like i can get mounting hardware from rodshop.com.au i still have the following questions;

- Is the HR gear box tunnel big enough for the VL auto? If not is there something smaller?
- Will cutting a hole for the shifter compromise the integrity of the vehicle?
- Will the RB30 get in the way of anything under the HR hod? (Steering etc..)
- Is there a simple solution for gear box mounts? Or someone who makes a customised set up?
- Where's the best place to get a modified sump and pick up?

Wanted 308 Trimatic

Looking for a 308 Trimatic gearbox, I am in Brisbane, I have a HQ 308 tri pattern going into a HT Kingswood currently with a 186 powerglide .
Can I use an aftermarket shifter or whats the best way to set up linkages for shifter.

I have been told that trimatics can be rebuit tough is this correct? Thinking of using Precise automatics at Beenleigh, has anyone had any dealings with them? Thanks

Help - Fuel siphoning into carbi story

Hey guys.....

I have finally put the inlet manifold back on the HZ sedan (253 - Automatic) yesterday with new gaskets after having taken the inlet manifold off 6 months ago.

Being that no fuel had run through the fuel hose in a while, I needed to spray (flammable) carbi cleaner into the carbi (WW stromberg) a few times to help get the engine started, considering efforts at pouring a little petrol into carbi wasn't sufficient with pulsing the ignition on & off. I got the car started and went for a short drive down to the main street to put in fuel, as the tank was almost empty and stopped at my local servo for 5 min. as I only wanted $14 of fuel (@ $1.25/L = cheap uni student :) and to quickly clean outside windows.
