Hot starting problem

Having trouble with my 76 LX Torana not starting when its hot. It doesn run hot, just won't start at operating temp. I've heard suggestions like vaporised fuel in the carby, problems with the condenser in the distributor and maby a crack in the head leading to a loss of compression. Has anyone had a problem like this?

Also, What is the general consensus about lead replacement petrol? Are there any fuel additives worth using?

Thanks,

Philip.

Worked HQ!!

Ive almost given up! I have THE HQ for sale... Full GTS options (all original), T400, Salisbury, twin thermo's.... the list goes on & on (I have a foolscap page of modifications).

Some bastard stole the door-mount rear view mirrors, as my beast sat at the bottom of my drive - mainly because I had my licence suspended for a red light (grrrr) camera fine! I had my panel van stolen too. (What the F#@! is up with this world!!???) Now I have to sell. I need transport for band equipment!

This is URGENT!!

HZ PANEL VAN

I have a Holden HZ panel van - 1978, a V8 5 litre motor. It is a Statesman and the colour is metallic blue. Rego due October 2002. It is going to be on sale very shortly, maybe to restore first.

The van runs on LPG/petrol, has a big CD radio stereo system. Various new parts have been installed and runs well and need of restoration. The van is excellant for spare parts or upgrading for an enthusiast.

202 upgrade

I am considering upgrading the engine in my HQ.
As the red 202 engine already in the vehicle is in good order I have decided that if it is possible to make alterations to the unit I could upgrade it without having to contimplate dropping in a v8 and having to carry out all the added work in doing so.
Could you please advise me on the upgrades that can be performed to the original 202 engine for added performance, including block and head alterations, carburation alterations and any assosciated requirements needed for example brake upgrade or suspension.
contact Mike
