Hi everyone. Well ive finally taken some digital photos of my 78 hz sedan and want to put them on the net or at least place them on this site so people can have a look and let me know what they think. Just wondering how do i do it and how many am i able to put up. is there a limit? Cheers.

gear box

i'm doing up an EH panelvan and dont really want to go hacking into the body and modifying it because its in really good condition (i'd like to keep the body as original as possible)... at the moment its got a 3 speed crash box... i was wondering am i stuck with that, or is there another box that will fit in without any major modifications to the transmission tunnel?

Bogun

G'day,

I own a HD holden with a 186s engine bored out to 192, 149 high compression head and a mild street cam. this is the dual throat carbi version.

Thanks

Kiwi Ford owner turned Aussie Holden owner

Well I`ve finally done it....... I bought a Holden.
Not long been in Australia & needed a second car & purchased a VH Holden for $300. I dont know a thing about em, as ive always owned a ford. I want to get a bit more get-up-&-go out of the Blue(?) 202 without compromising fuel economy. I will be tuning it, timing, plugs, points and gas analysis etc. Is their any relatively easy mods to make? I was basically thinking carby & manifold. Any ideas?

253 engine and gearbox

Hey, I was wondering if it's possible to get 'racing' type flywheels and harmonic balancers for a 253? Ones that are lighter and handle more horsepower (you know the type). Do any companies produce these in Australia?

Also, I am wondering if any of the standard V8 gearboxes (aussie 3, 4, etc) have an overdrive as their final gear, like about a 0.8:1 ratio? Or are all of them direct drive? Cheers

rocker bolt keeps snapping

hey all.

im putting the rocker bolts onto my red 202 and have a slight problem. the bolt connecting the rocker of the exhaust valve on the first cyl (the very first in the line of bolts) keeps snapping. i bought some new bolts to replace the one i snapped from supercheap auto but they also keep snapping. I take it these high tensile ones arent that high tensile. as i am only tightening them to 20 lbs/ft making sure that each cyl is tdc before tightening, i cant see why the first bolt keeps breaking, all the other bolts seem to tighten fine so i dont know what the problem is.

Picnic radio

Recently acquired a "picnic" radio at a flea market.
It is complete with the under dash mounting that it slides into.
I have discovered that the battery that goes in the radio, is 6 volts.
However I'm wondering if the radio works off 12 volts once located in its carrier in the vehicle.
There is some kind of "transformer" at the rear of the carrier, but no voltage notice etc.
Can anyone provide me with more information or a wiring diagram?
