Height of break pedal in 72 HQ Holden

Have recently purchased a 72 HQ auto Premier. The break pedal is some 4 - 5 inches higher than the accelerater pedal. Is this normal and can it be lowered to bring it more in line with the accelerater.
Many thanks

The loss of a icon (people are stupid!)

Why are people so stupid!!!
just 3 weeks ago I came across a HQ monaro coupe sitting neglected in a old service stations yard, there was little left of her but the body was in good condition, I found the owner and offered to buy the HQ for $300, and tow it away that day, he said "ill think about it", after a week of waiting to hear from him, I called in, only to be told that the coupe was taken to the tip the previous day.
So off I went to see about buying it from the tip operators, only to arive in time to see a loader crush it flat.

floor shift conversion

I am about to convert from three on the tree to four on the floor in my HT. I am just wondering if there is a steering column available that will fit that does not have the gear shift levers for the three speed on it, and if so what model do I obtain this from?. As always, any help is much appreciated.

front discs/stub axles

I am getting ready to convert the front drums to LH discs on my HT. When my LH was on the road, I was looking into fitting HQ stub axles as I was told these fit and that this automatically lowers the front end 2 inches. If this is so, then I guess it stands to reason that I could fit HQ stub axles to the HT in order to have front discs and a lower front end. Has anyone heard of this being done?, is it possible? any help would be very much appreciated guys, cheers.

14 inch wheels to 15 inch mags

I have just recently got some 15 mags for my VK which had 14 inch standards on it. Does anyone know the change in speed at 10kn intervals? eg does 10 km/hr on 14 inch = 12.5 km/hr on 15 inch? Is there a website that has all these? I know I need to get a new speedo plug, but I hope to do this until I can get the parts. Thanks

stromberg carbies

Gday folks.

Can anyone tell me what the size of the standard stromberg found on 202 red motors is in cfm.

Im looking at getting the head flowed a bit more, bigger valves etc, and was wondering whether i would need to change the standard carby.

I am not after power gains at the expense of economy otherwise i would have bought a Holley 350. (id rather stick with the stocky or pick up a 2 barrel off a late model commodore)

Also on a standard engine (202), what would be the maximum rpm?

cheers cobbers

my aging engine

My original standard 173 in my LX Torrie isn giong to last a hell of a lot longer. She's done 240000kms without any sort of rebuild (no internals anyway) and still uses no oil. My question is, should I get hold of a 202 to replace my engine, or spend the money getting mine rebuilt? Does anyone know of good places in Sydney to got a new engine or get an engine rebuilt? Thanks. '
