RB30 (VL 6) into a VC wagon

I have a VC wagon in reasonable condition, the only problem being some strange gearbox gremlins. I was thinking of replacing the gearbox, and doing a bit of other ancillary upgrading to the car, however, a friend has mentioned that he has a wrecked VL sedan with all mechanicals (engine etc) in good order.

How difficult would it be to transfer the engine and gearbox (manual) into the wagon? Is it a feasible option or should I just replace my trimatic and drive it?

Your comments would be appreciated.

Rear end brakes with HR disc brakes

Im having troubles with my rear brakes locking up on my FE. I am running a HR disc brake front end (with booster) and a drum rear end from a HR that had drums all round.

Someonesaid that they thought the rear brakes from a disc brake car where different to those of a drums all round car.

Can anyone confirm and give me details? Is there a mod I can do to my current rear setup to suit a disc front end? '

Power windows for the HQ

Cheers for the previous help with the HQ questions relating to the nose & seals guys.

I am currently working mainly on the interior of my car before starting the exterior clean up and engine rebuild and had just fitted central locking and will be getting a alarm tomorrow morning and from there was hoping to source a powerr window unit that will work with my car, I have the 4 door sedan has anyone tried throwing a commadore power window unit in? Or does anyone know if this will or wont work.

Also if anyone needs to install central locking in the older cars they might find the spring that holds the lock up or down is a bit strong for some power locking motors but it is easy to unclip and take out and the power locking motor does the same job once attached even if unpowered.

Cheers. david'

Loomking for stuff for my HQ

Im looking for seels (doors, boot, windows) for a 73' HQ, I was wondering if anyone knew where I can get some from and also if I can use second hand ones or not?

I'm also looking to mount bull-bars on the front and was wondering if anyone had done this and how to go about it, I want a simple bar much like the new ISUZU MU's have on them.

Another thing (last one) does anyone know any good old Holden shops/yards/mechanics in New Zealand or on the Gold Coast in Australia I'm trying to aquire a HQ Premier front end.

cheers.

Monaro ID tags'

Any one out there got a set of ID tags for a HQ monaro coupe, not the LS or GTS but a stock monaro, like a two door Kingswood with no fancy stuff, the code Im after is 80337 or 80437. I will need all 3 tag's (body plate, build code and ADR/vin plate), as the coupe shell I've got has none, because it was going to be used as a stock car and the tag's were destroyed, {just so you know it aint stolen} .

blow through turbo

Hello there! well i posted couple of weeks ago about building a peformance 186. well since then my plans have changed once again. Well after finding a turbo manifold from some old bloke with a hot EH, a quick chat with the old fella and he had me convinced that the turbo setup was the go! "youll spend as much doing a turbo then u would on your other rebuild but get twice the power" he said ! So im now seeking information on turbos,lowering comp and carby prep for a blow through set up .

gearbox rubber

I have a HQ kingswood gearbox which has been put into a HR ute,(it is a splitpin gearbox is one terms used for the gearbox), now it is NOT the rubber which covers the actual gearstick it is the rubber which sits beneath that right on the gearbox and it covers the selectors at the bottom of the gearstick,(but is not the boot it is below that, everyone else believes that is what i am talking about), it stops all of the dirt getting amongst the selectors making it harder to change gears.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

trimatic woes

Can anyone out there tell me if anything different has to be performed when re-linking a trimatic other than fluid replacement which would give the following problems? I changed a 202 to a 186/208 stroker with a 2000 stall convertor and have now got bad power (especially uphill), wont change from 1st, weird rattling noise from the tranny, and very hard to change gears. This is all topped off with the noise building up...
I cant believe the trimatic decided to pack it in at exactly same time of motor change...

Building a Very Quick 202

I bought this slapped together worked 202, it would be worth doing up, it already has a Stage 2 Cam, Straight Cut Alloy Timing Gears, Heavy Duty Oil Pickup, Ectronic Dizzy, and a 350 Holley. I bought the engine with big plans, frankly im sick of all the 4cyl turbo jobs getting around town, and i have the means to build this engine up, and blow them all away, i have heared that a very quick 202 can be built using bits and peices from the Red, Blue and Black.

Steering

annoying problem with the power steering in my VC SL Wagon

The steering is very touchy...like full lock from left to right is like 2 full turns!!!! is this normal??????

and also the steering is easy to oversteer as it does not come back to dead ahead...i have to kinda pull it back.

Are these common characteristics of the VC commodore? i am starting to get used to it...in fact the very sensitive steering can be real nice for cornering but the lack of centering is (TYPO;)ting me!
