HEMI 6 POWER

Right o, im a holden fan from way back but have alwaise known how lame the holden 6 is, they belong on tractors and make great boat anchors. 6 pots look real neat under the bonnet, chew less fuel than a equally worked or equally standard v8, cheeper to rego, better weight distribution, easier on the chasis and suspension weight wise, easier to work on bla bla bla wich is why iv chosen to go with one for a change.
stuff the poxy holden 6, iv swapped the 202 for a hemi 6 and am preparing to put it in. anyone else on this site done it ?

HT 383 chev what ia required?

I may have the opportunity to purchase a 383 chev motor (fully rebuilt and dynoed at 500+ HP - never used. Would it be worth $8000 as it apparently cost $15000 to build?). Would the engine mounts from my chev 307 be suitable for the 383? Also could I use the sump/pick up from the 307 on the 383? What else would be required to get the 383 in a HT Monaro?

Powerglide filler tube

Hi all, can anyone tell me how I fit the filler tube into a Powerglide after it's already been fitted to car??!

Yes - I re-fitted a 179 with powerglide attached into my HD ute - then I tried to put the filler tube in. It's about 1/3 way into the trans housing, how do I get it 'home'??

thanks guys, nd gals

Wanting to sell a WB Caprive grill - what are they worth?

Hi, my fiance used to be the proud owner of a WB Caprice ute but when it was in storage, it was crushed, apparently by mistake. He seems to think the grill is valuable and this has always been kept seperate. Since our plans to restore the ute are well and truly over, yet we still have the grill, I am wondering the best place to sell it, and how much I should ask? I saw one that looks identical to the one we have on Ebay that sold for $2300, but it said brand new NOS. what does this mean?
Any advice on how to offload this grill and make a decent profit welcomed!!

Thanks

Its Legal

I had the engineer around to my house for 2nd & final inspection today.
He's given me the all clear for all the mods. The seats,wheels & the v8.
After $950 & 2 inspections I'm very happy to be back on the road.

Emissions

Hi guys,

Just wondering if anyone knows what the punishment is for not running emissions on a car?
Does anyone know how big the fine is? And is there anything else besides a defect and a fine?

Thanks in advance

HT Premier Sedan For Sale

As the title says, I've got a HT Premier sitting down the back yard that I got as a pair of donor cars for my Kingswood project. As I've already got my HG donor car I have no need for the HT.
Located in Mackay, Central QLD Coast.
Its a nearly complete car, with 70% complete interior.
Seats have no tears, however they definitely need a good clean.
Doors and front quarter panels have rust along the bottoms, chassis and main body is relatively rust free, couple small patches here and there.
