202 Camshaft info?

Can anyone tell me the difference between 2 x GM cams I have. One is a GM7 and the other is a GM11. I've got no idea what they were originally from, but they're currently sitting in a couple of 3.3/202 blue motors.

Thanks in advance fellas!

LJ Torana diff

Can anyone tell if the LJ Torana had coarse or fine spline axles?
Car is a 173, 3 speed manual four door, 3.36 centre.
How much shorter is an LJ rear end compared to an EH rear end.
The new centre that sat under my bench for 17 years before we put it in the EH has a very leaky pinion seal. :(
I can get an LJ rear end out of paddock bomb. I wanted to know if it will fit before I do any work.
Our EH is set up for a later long bolt diff so the bottom bolts won't be a problem if they are different to an EH.

wb power steering-WB Holden ute

Greetings all.
I have a slow weepy leak thats coming out of the high pressure hose side of the power steering pump.
Dribbles out and under the pump itself and drops itself straight on top of the rag joint , which is now munted. I have unscrewed the hose for a look thinking that it may have an O ring that is dried out but alas there is no o ring of any sort.
Is there supposed to be an o ring around the threaded end so when its tightened up it seals ?
I spoke to Repco who found a listed part but its only the size of the flared end of the pipe itself.

Proof of ownership

I’m selling my HX but I can’t find any of my paperwork to prove I own the car, the buyer won’t budge to I produce something. What process do I have to go through ? It hasn’t be registered since 2002, last in NSW. Can I go online or do I have to travel to Tweed RTA ( nsw ) to find proof. I live on the Gold Coast

HZ One Tonner to Tub conversion

Apologies if this has been addressed before.

HZ / HX One tonner ute, I am looking to take off the tray and replace it with a tub. Can it be done? I'm assuming so with a little bit of engineering here and there.

Thanks.
