Make a WB ute into HZ ute

I was wondering if it is at all possible to convert a WB ute into HZ ute. I know the front guards are different along with the bonnet. But are the front frames that are bolted to the cab the same for both models ?

Thanks in advance for clarification.

VB SLE 308 310 Pack

I just bought a VB SLE 308
I was advertised as a 310 Pack

It does not have the vehicle IT Tags

No Tag on left strut bar.

I have a feeling this is not a real 310 Pack

Also car has a choke which is disconnected, is it correct that only 6 cylinders have a choke?

As per the roadworthy

VIN is AVB0248895

Engine number is VT 41275

I have a bad feeling that this is a SLE V6 converted to a V8

253/308 engine mount brackets

Could someone please let me know the difference between HQ-WB and LH-LX V8 engine mount brackets? I thought they were one and the same but I'm hearing they are different.

GM Factory EFI Set Ups

I'm curious to know what GM made different from the VN VR VS to the later model VT V8 engines to change them from a Batch-Fire EFI configuration to Sequential. Can anyone enlighten me? Cheers.

GTS tacho problem

Had the WB ute re sprayed so the motor came out. Unfortunately the tacho ( HJ dash, white needle) has not been wired back in. I ran a wire from the negative coil to the back of the tacho to see if it worked.

Problem: There is a wire already on the negative of coil going to the LPG relay. When I add the tacho wire this seems to stop the lpg relay from working and vehicle won't start.

Tacho used to work prior to motor out and has always been on gas. Not sure how to wire tacho back in.

WB driveline vibration

thought I'd share a win...picked up a WB caprice about 6 months ago and one of the things that needed sorting was some annoying driveline vibration at about 1400rpm - which in top gear was about 55kmhr and a very typ speed to be driving around the suburbs.

Torana 308 block

I would like some opinions regarding a Torana 308 block I'm thinking of selling.
It has is a legit genuine HT prefix engine number [not someone's re-stamp] it's date code is 18 H 7, to me this means its a 18 August 1977 casting, so LX SLR 5000 or SS 5L and the good thing is it's a standard bore. Both heads have a cast number of 2812174, they appear to have larger than standard valves. So what's your thought's please ?
Thanks Mal

Boot Lid Badge

picked up a "Statesman" badge for my WB boot lid (passenger side) from an antique store of all places at a sensible price...the original on mine had been removed when the car was repainted quite a few years ago and the holes filled..the badge has 2 pins...I am presuming there would have just been 2 holes drilled in the lid slightly smaller and the pins were a taper fit - or was there some kind of plastic insert in the holes?

Vn304 into Hq

Hey jim here . I'm putting already built 304 vn into my Hq one tonner. I currently run a 253 trimatic pattern with a 350 Holley and a celica 5 speed . The vn 304 turbo pattern has been totally rebuilt with balancing porting flat tops Roller rockers head work and ground. I'm putting a carbie on top.. I'd like to put a 650 hp .. it's a daily drive and I would like it not to stop at every fuel station .. is their much difference between a double pumper and a vac sec 650 in fuel economy.. do I need thermo fans ?? How efficient is getting new pace makers coated for heat transfer..
