Decisions, Decisions

I own a HG premier and have been rebuilding it for several years, the inside is fully decked out with race seats etc. The running gear is yet to be changed but its the bodywork i need advice over, there are several patches of rust in the usual areas and am wondering if the rust replacement sections available are worth buying? I figure this would be better as no bog would be in the car. Also would a good weekend panel beater be able to perform the task of cutting and replacing the sections of rust just as good as there expensive counterparts.

Oil Pressure

Ok I'm confused, and scared. I don't believe that oil is getting to the top of my engine (253)..so to test this i borrowed an oil pressure gauge. Screwed it into the oil pump, crank the engine and it's running but there is no reading of any pressure on the gauge. When I removed the gauge, quite a lot of oil comes out the hole. Doesn't this suggest there is oil pressure????? The engine has been running for about a total of 5 minutes since I rebuilt it, and there is no evidence of oil making it to the rockers. Would it even have had enough time for oil to make it to the top of the engine? I did prime the oil pump with vasoline before I assembled it. So, I need some advice please, before I cook and seize my engine.

GTS Mirrors

Hi,

I am looking at purchasing a set of GTS Mirrors, and after having little to no luck I have found someone selling a set.

My question is, are GTS mirrors identical on both sides? The ones being sold seem to be different. One left/hand one slightly narrows as it nears the outer part, the right/hand mirror is consitent in width throughout? The right/hand mirror seems non-genuine to me, although the foot is the same crome c style joint.

Any info on Mods to FB front end etc:

Hi everyone.
Im running my FB on all original front end etc. but was wondering what a guestimate would be to set her up with HR front end for discs etc. just looking initially at a disc brake front end, but would look later at engine and gearbox changes - not to something too big, i was thinking either a 186(s) or a 202.

Anyone have an ideas of cost for these 2 stages (incl. labour) and what mods would you recommend, 186, 202, 308???????

Tuning 253

I'm having problems with my 253, in that it will start, but then after 10-15 seconds the motor will die. If I give it some accelerator, it will last longer, but eventually die too. Now I know the timing is out at the moment but I've fiddled with it and that doesn't affect it much. I've been told the fuel may be running out the reservoir of the carby (holley 350). Does this sound like it could be the source of the problem? If so how can I check this, and remedy it?

MORE POWER AND BETTER FUEL ECONOMY???

Hi all,

I have a red 202 in my hq that has done 9000 k's since the rebuilt. It has a 350 Holley carb with one of those 14 inch diameter (I think) chrome air filters, extractors, 2 1/2 exhaust.

I was just wondering what else could I do or even SHOULD I do in order to increase the fuel ecconomy and the power. What would be the cheapest yet most efficient and effective way of accomplishing this?

Any replies would be helpful for what ever the reason may be.
