Correct Driven Gear

Gidday,
The Tonner is all but complete and I was hoping someone could tell me the correct driven gear to use on the end of the speedo cable in the Trimatic, as I've been told that there are diffenent colours depending on the diff ratio used.
The centre I have at present is 2.78 LSD,10 Bolt. Also how difficult is it to change the ratio ?

Regards Dave

Hx 253 performance

I have a HX 253 that i recently rebuilt, it has a 5 speed manual, 465 holley, edelbrock performer manifold, ACL flattop pistons, stage 2 crane cam, stainless steel valve seats, oversize valves, ported heads, electronic ignition genie extractors and twin 2" exhaust.
I was wondering what sorts of times should it run and how much fuel should it use, cause it is pretty thirsty.

Thanks for your help

HELP VH clutch problem

Can anyone help.
My VH Commodore has developed a problem in the clutch. When the car is hot (even through plain idling) or has done a little driving around, the clutch gets very stiff and comes out in stages. You cant easily release the clutch without dropping it. However, when the car is cold, like first thing of a morning or it has rested for a space of time, the clutch operates perfectly! What can it be? Could it be the release bearing or something more sinister?

253 engine and gearbox

Hey, I was wondering if it's possible to get 'racing' type flywheels and harmonic balancers for a 253? Ones that are lighter and handle more horsepower (you know the type). Do any companies produce these in Australia?

Also, I am wondering if any of the standard V8 gearboxes (aussie 3, 4, etc) have an overdrive as their final gear, like about a 0.8:1 ratio? Or are all of them direct drive? Cheers

G'Day All

Can any whizzer out there recommend the right spark plug to use in my recently acquired HZ, it's 253 Trimatic, no mods except for duel fuel, no LPG available locally so only running approx 50% of time on LPG and does a lot of short trips ( less than 5klms )in 50&60 KPH zones in hilly area.

lookin' out for guidance,
Kev
