Queenslands new regestration laws regarding old holdens

I was just wondering if someone could clarify the new registration laws in Queensland for me?
Say I had an FJ Holden and wanted to put another 6 cylinder engine in is that ok?
Now would it be ok to put a v6 engine in it?
I have tried looking but have found no information regarding the new engine sizes, I have heard at club meetings you can't put a v8 in if it never came out with one in the model or if it hasn't previously been registered that way.
But need some clarification regarding putting a v6 into an FJ Ute

Thanks again and I love this site, Brett

please help 202 fuel injection issues

I have a fuel injected 202 black motor I am trying to run on my start up stand.

The fuel goes through the pump up to the regulator then stops and does not continue to the fuel rail.

I have replaced the fuel pump and regulator but the fuel still stops once it gets there, do I need to bleed it or is it to do with the vacuum pipe on the end of the regulator stoping the fuel from getting through?

When I tip fuel down the throttle body the engine fires but that's bypassing the injectors and fuel rail.

Please help and tell me what I am doing wrong and tell me how to pressurise the fuel rail

Fx master cylinder upgrade on my fx (with hr disk brakes)???

Hey all I'm restoring an fx with the old man. We have just put a hr front end in with a hr diff as well. We are going to run the hr disk brakes on the front and leave the hr drums on the back. We need some advise on how to modify the original master cylinder to a more newer one like on a torana or Hj with a vh44 booster. Is it possible to put a newer master cylinder where the original one sits and still make the original brake pedal work or is there another way to do it that is easier any help much appreciated!!! Cheers Daniel

HT Premier mechanical restoration

All all,

after advice on a Perth/South West WA based company that can perform mechanical and electrical restoration on my 1970 HT Premier.

I bought the car with original Perth Holden dealer sales documents and first registration info and as far as I can see everything is original except paint which was re-done 8 years ago, in original Monza blue with white roof. All original chrome trimming and badges re-attached. Interior is all original and in good condition except for a front seat spring recon required.
