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.

Removing steering wheel HZ Column Shift Auto

I’ve been trying to remove the steering wheel out of my HZ and it just isn’t budging. How are other people getting the wheels off? I’ve bought a steering wheel puller but can’t find any matching bolts to go in?

Holden HJ 1975 Streetstock

Got thinking - Since I have a donna car that helped me ute rebuild, I could rebuild it too, & Save abita Holden History,Early Days yet but got rubbing and scrubbing, with all the bits to bring her back to the Glory Days. She'll get a 253 V8 too.

GEN light on dash

Hey Team
I have a 73 HQ and yesterday after switching her off then trying to start again there was nothing. Not even trying to crank over. The only light on is the GEN one in the dash! Any similar faults?
