am to fm airchief conversions?

Hi,
Its time to get the Old Airchief sorted in the kingswood. Now this is an original working am radio but as I live in country NSW there isn't much I can pick up on AM any more.

What do most of you guys do? Do people mainly get their old radios to run FM? or do you leave it as is? Im trying to keep the car as original as possible and as it isn't a daily driver im not interested in hidden cd players, radios and 'such.

Any thoughts appreciated .
Also does anyone know the approx. cost to convert to FM and who does them?
Thanks in advance,
Alby

Holden HQ Ute with 173 Red Motor, Best power options?

Hey, I have a Holden HQ Ute I recently brought 3 weeks ago. I'm on my P1s so I can't exactly chuck a V8 in it at the moment, I want to get the most power I can while maintain a decent fuel economy below 12 - 14 liters per 100km. My 173 has cracked a piston in it's life, and had them all replaced with ACL Race Pistons I was told. My motor has only done 50,000kms since rebuild.

I currently have

173 Red Motor Stock
3 Speed T Bar Traumatic
3.55 Banjo Limited Slip Diff

Everything else is stock, I currently get 15-17 Liters per 100km (Something has to be wrong)

I got my Ute fully inspected by my local mechanic, My 1st cylinder currently has a small lack of compression (Must be valves). He said it's nothing to worry about (Which I think is stupid)
