Changing single leaking intake manifold bolts

I have recently changed my leaking 253 v8 intake manifold gasket (twice) using gasket sealant front and rear instead of cork but have since found a weaping leak which is not taking up after a couple of months. The leak is from a couple of the bolts which go into the water jacket.. and from memory the bolts had rust imperfections but i reused them in a hurry.

Can i swap out only the weaping bolts without taking the entire manifold off again?

Ignition coil wiring for gts dash

Hey guys I installed my new Bosch GT40R coil in my 253 blue motor in my Hg wagon I put it in after a very long stressful day and wired the resistor wire to negative and dizzy to positive (very simple and stupid mistake) upon starting the car I’ve realised that the fast idle for the choke is no longer engaging and causing the car to not warm up. what could this be have I damaged something wiring up the opposite way.

Has any body ever had a busted torque converted which caused the engine to stall. If I rev it up and bang into gear drives perfect up and down the gears but will stall if I slow down before I stop

Advice needed on diff rebuild places

Looking for wisdom from past experiences on best place to get my diff rebuilt.
Pretty sure it is a 3.08 10 bolt salisbury in my 253 hj premier wagon. I get a regular knocking sound, not really a whine. Been going on for over a year or so now, but im now worried it will suddenly fail.

Any advice welcome.
I am in Eastern suburbs of Melbourne.

HZ firewall transplant

Hi
My HZ (pano) has a firewall too far gone. I have a HQ (sedan) donor car with clean firewall. I'm looking at unpicking the spotwelds in the floor just in front of the rear console bracket which looks easy enough but I'm a bit more scared about where to cut the sills. I also need the A pillars as the HZ is knackered so I'll need to cut that almost at the top. Anyone out there have tips for me or pics of doing it? I've unpicked cowl and plenum from a WB so have done that before and have them saved as good replacements.
So far I am aware;

rebuild a 253 or replace it - What do ya reckon and how much $$

Hi Guys, 1st time poster .... i have just purchased off a mate a 73 HQ UTE with a 253V8 in it .. It hasn't been driven or started in over 2 years ... and its on gas/petrol as well ...although i will get rid of the gas crap... It does leak some oil but was running good before he parked it in his shed, and let the rego run out ... My questions are 1) What would it cost ( APPROX) to rebuild the engine and work it a bit ... Give it a lumpy cam and make it sound nice at idle ...

Genuine original Carby HZ 253

Does anybody know what is the correct number a HZ 253 Auto should have for a Carby. I am currently looking at replacing mine, the number on mine is a 23-1111. Is that the original number that the car should have or is there other options?

It’s a 2 barrel Stromberg.
