seat belts

Does anyone know the laws concerning seat belts and kids in our old cars? My HR has no seat belts in the back as all did and none have been fitted. There are two in the front bench seat. Can I take my four year old in the car legally? Do I put him in the front or let him roll around the back like we all did! What are your thoughts?

NSW slimline plates.

As you can see there are 2 styles of these plates, the 'B' one is the original design and the 'A' is the current design.

I am looking for some chrome frames (plastic or metal) to suit the old 'B' original style, I'm hoping someone here might know where I can get some.

If so thanks in advance.

You'll have to scroll down the page to the show next tab to get to the grey Goggomobile..
Be sure to click on the next video tab at the end of each video as the build progresses.. They are only short.

HT Coil spring insulator

When you install the front coil springs on a HT do you still use coil spring insulators at the top of the spring? I was told by a suspension place that they dont worry about it these days as the tolerance for the springs (during manifacture) is much better then 40+ years ago and it is not necessary. If they are still required where do you purchase them? Thanks.

Bloody ebay sellers

Whinge, whinge, whinge. I jumped on the pootie to have a look at EJ's on ebay under the 'Cars' section.

Result? 8 listings.

How many were EJ's? 2.

"Westinghouse dishwasher may suit FX FJ FC FE EK FB EJ EH HD HR XK XL XM XP buyer."

Well that's a slight exaggeration, but you get where I'm coming from. It'd be nice if ebay could police it somehow. If I want an FX, I want an FX. A picture of a rooted HK Belmont ute is not going to change my mind!

Correct Installation of HG lower control arm bushes???

Hello,

Earlier this year had a Pedder's outlet assemble my HG's front crossmember (off the car), I supplied new rubber mackay upper and lower control arm bushes and balljoints to fit, they supplied springs.

The crossmember is now on the car and when I took it for a wheel alignment the mechanic said he wouldn't do it because lower control arm bushes are incorrectly installed. I rang the Pedder's outlet and over phone the mechanic told me that it was normal practice to not press this bush home. I know cars that I have seen at the wreckers etc; and have bush pushed home.

wheel problem

Hi. I have a Holden HZ Kingswood which i have just bouht. It is a great old car and I like driving it. The question I have is to do with the wheels. 3 of the wheels have 5 nuts on them. 1 wheel thouh only has 3 nuts. I thouht this was just how it was until my mates said it should have 5. So I went and bouht some more wheel nuts and after I drove home I was going to put them on. I found when I went to put them on there are no wheel bolts in the holes so I obviosly cant put the nuts on. Are my mates wrong and it only is ment to have 3 nuts?

Friday night all I want for Christmas

http://www.news.com....
This is near Mangrove Mountain in NSW, not far off the freeway.
It was designed by Wayne Gardiner. I have a friend who has driven the track and he reckons it is the best he's seen.
It would be nice just to have a back yard that big, let alone with your own race track.

Which cam to use in mild efi 202

Hi guys, new to this site and was just chasing some opinions. Currently building a 202 efi with the following specs
ACL + .040 pistons
block decked .010
12 port head ported and flowed
stainless 1.74in and 1.55ex valves
48cc chambers giving around 10.5:1 compression
1.65 ratio crower v8 roller rockers
Ford/bosch 4.0l injectors
and I currently am in 2 minds as to whether I should run the standard cam, giving that it is designed to be run with the injection system and take advantage of the manifold pulses or run the Powerboss cs 1277 cam with the following specs
Camshaft Specs for a powerboss - part no. CS-1277

Duration Opens Closes Overlap
Inlet: 281 32 69 61
Exhaust: 281 72 29
