HD Ute floor

Hi all, I'm not able to become a member yet but I'd like some opinions {yes, i know all about opinions !!} I have a HD holden barn find ute, it was left for years without screens and windows, at some stage, water got into it and completely rested out the floors, front and back to the fuel tank, and up to the seam in the firewall, both the top part of the firewall and behind the seat wall section are rust free. I was lucky enough to stumble onto a guy that had a complete HR Premier wagon floor in great condition, including the bottom of the pillars and sills intact.

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.
