Putting the H back in the Q.

Back in January 19th I started me trilogy of trials and tribulations getting me ride on the road

I spent a solid week rubbing & scrubbing, some days went into the dawn of the next day, I couldn't leave it alone, but Progress was being made, rust protection, etch primer & top coat - followed by underbody sealer surely must help, just all takes time to prepare and complete. Then one morning I come up the house, I had no obvious jobs left to do (whoohu), she was now ready for the professionals.

HT Ute rear windscreen

Greetings all - about to refit my HT ute rear windscreen with a new rubber.
Just wonder if it's best to put the d-mastic on the outside of the rubber itself or put it on the car body before fitting?
Any advice or other tips appreciated.
cheers

is it worth it to hot up a 253?

I know you bore it out, bigger valves, lumpy cam all that sort of thing, but can you, like a 308 to 355, stroke it a bit? is it worth it to hot up a 253? AND if I did, will the motor be small enough to run a small 8 bolt salisbury diff a trimatic and a standard brake booster ... Im just throwing it out there I wouldnt mind an 8 in my commy but I if I put an 308 worked I think ill have to change too many things to accomodate the extra horses. if someone could enlighten me on the old 253 capabilities and incapabilities and what I need to change from 6cyl running gear.

Buying a Hq - HZ

Can any body give me some tips on what to watch out for when I'm inspecting an Hq with the intention of buying it. The usual stuff comes to mind like, common rust areas but what about underbody or engine bay areas? Any tips would be welcome. I'm off to have a look at one in a couple of days and have my torch and magnet ready:)
Cheers

Engine and date code

Hi I've got a red 253 with the number 253H26403 and the date code is 19C6. From my understanding of how these work the engine code relates to a HT engine and the date code is for a engine made in 1976. Given that the engine number can be re-stamped (if someone reconditions an engine and shaves it off), does this mean it's a 1976 engine with a changed engine code? Also I'm not sure if it's normal or not, but the middle figures of 9C in the date code is much higher than the outside ones.
