Ignition Lock Barrel - Can't remove

Hi,

I am having problems removing the ignition barrel for my HJ Kingsood.

I have found the following instructions "If you already have the horn pad, steering wheel and blinker switch (which is just a bar) off. You remove the three or four screws holding the plastic section down and it will lift up enough to move aside there is no need to undo wiring connectors. Look for a slot right side of centre inside the housing. Push a small screwdriver into the slot to push the catch down then withdraw the barrel."

V8 exhuast type/setup

Hi guys,

I know this has probably been discussed a lot but I'm still undecided as to what exhaust setup to use on the FJ V8
ie. H-pipe X-pipe or dual pipes with no crossover at all....

I've got 4into1 extractors, and I'll go 2 1/4 inch exhaust.

Whats your opinions?

Hi crew, Just a quick query, a mate wants to put the 327 & trans out of her WB panelvan into her HQ ute, will this be a straight swap? I havent had a chance to check out & havent had much to do with either model.

Qualified Mechanic (Brisbane)

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a decent qualified mechanic in Brisbane that has experience working on HQ chev engines? I would prefer someone on the southside near Carindale; possibly a retired mechanic who is interested in a cash job.

Long time no speak

Hey yoall long time no speak, work this year has had me flat strapped till now. Did the right thing and became a site sponsor straight off as soon as I got back on, this is one of the best sites on the net.

Looking at another project rally car, went 2 brissy a couple of months ago with a mate and dropped in at his parents place on the coast and discovered a LH Torana sitting in the shed, only 2 years outa rego. Turns out his pop owned it since day one and been in the family ever since. Had plenty of offers but wouldn't sell it but wouldn't mind it going to become a bash car if it's helping people out.

Couple of questions are this. It's got some rust spots in the rear windscreen and one or 2 on the body, bonnet etc. How much realistic work is in the stuff in the rear screen?

extractors for small block chev into HR

Hi all am looking at a set of headers currently on ebay for a chev into HR which is what I have planned for my ute project. These require cut outs through the inner guards though and was talking to a guy a few weeks back who stated he can make extractors that will tuck beside the block.

Holley jet size

Hi, I am seeking advice on what jet size I need for my 600 Holley carby. It sits on a 327 chev, with high rise manifold, double hump heads, extractors and a T400 auto gearbox.

I have put a carby kit through it but it still hesitates/bogs badly when I try to give it a pump. It is fine while not moving, I can rev it well, but as soon as I drive it then it hesitates/bogs then stalls when I get past idle - as if it is starving for fuel.

New interior for HJ?

Hi guys, just wondering if anyone knows of the top of thier head.

I have an HJ Van. Want to put new interior in it. Seen it done with an VL interior in a HQ. I have also seen a HQ Monaro with the 2009 Monaro interior (but I understand that was over 300 man hours to adapt!!)

I assume HQ HJ HG maybe even HZ all have similar dashes and can be swapped. Does anyone know if the dash etc from a more modern holden will fit an HJ, and any modifications that would be required. I would like to get the most modern possible with the least issues to instal.

Fuel Lines

Hi Guys,
I've dropped the V8 in the FJ and now i'm running brake & fuel lines.
I've heard some people warning against using copper fuel lines - is this correct.
If so Why? What should I be using then?

I'm running Holley 650DP with Holley mechanical fuel pump - so was goiing to use a larger diameter fuel line.

Any advice?

Thanks,
Luke

HKTG LH mirror

This is a pic of my HK with the left hand mirror situated in the best spot we could find to see out of below the 1/4 vent window.
Im pretty sure my bro's HT Monaro he had in the early 90's had a l/h mirror.
Wether they had them originally or not im not 100% sure but they are a bugger to get on in this "seeing" position. Doesnt really fuss me if they had them originally or not as this car is originally a 161 4sp opel base model.
cheers
Paul

HK diff swaps

Hi, I want to replace the banjo diff and have heard that volvo 740/760 and VN diffs make a good budget replacement? I have a V8 VC diff would this fit and would it be approx the right width?
