Original Or Modified? That Is Da Question

Hi, I Am About To Under-Go a EK Project,as with all good projects " Planning " is a key factor, I sat down n start coming up with some ideas for the EK, i decided what coulour i wanted,The wheels i wanted,the interior i wanted, but then it come to the engine bay... and i really go stuck... i couldnt decide whether to Keep da old grey motor , clean and hot it up a bit or should i do a total different conversion such as V8 VS 5.0 ? There Are certainly advantages with both ideas, If I keep It original i get more money for it when selling it? But if i have a nice new commodore V8 in it - well u already recieve my point? but please i wish to view your thoughts on this matter, Please Reply

Speedo not working, any ideas?

I have converted my HX Kingswood sedan from 202 auto to 253 with trimatic auto. My speedo was initially working but has since stopped. The cable itself appears intact but the little gear which meshes with the worm drive in the transmission seeems to be loose, I found it loose in the transmission when I was looking at it earlier, lucky to recover it. I havnt changed the diff, do I need a different little gear or cable.

Drainage holes

Hi
Can anyone tell me where the water drainage holes are located in the air intake vents located between the windscreen and bonnet of an HQ. The previous owner seems to have painted the area with a bitumen paint and sealed them up.
Many thanks

Auto to manual conversion

Hi all,
Does any1 know whats needed for a conversion from an original hydramatic gearbox to a manual (crashbox),

I know you need a manual colum, pedal setup and different tailshaft, but does the crossmember just bolt in or is it different?

Carby info

Hey peoples,
was wondering what carby I should put on my red 202 3.3L. for my HR
Is there much much difference between a double barrel stromy or a 350 holley? I want something that I dont have to worry about and something that wont suck to much juice. i have a 2 inch exhaust straight through. So I have to get the manifold. Would I need extractors?
Cheers

So you have stuffed the thread on the bolt.

Get a nut and hacksaw a cut into it, when you screw this on to the offending bolt it will clean it and maybe fix the thread burr.

:)
I love handy hints.
