HT Gearbox

Hi folks,
I have a HT 253 without a gearbox.
To cut a long story short,I took the casing to a guy in Tempe and apparently he died. By the time I found this out the workshop had been cleared out and the building re-purposed. (This is what I get for being super patient and never hassling people who work on my things. )
Been looking at online ads for boxes. The are pretty pricey.
Anyone got one in reasonable condition I could buy? Sydney area. Cant remember what was in it and the case is gone. Poss Aussie 4 speed.

HX suspension sag

HX premier. One inch low Kings all round. From rear looks sagged on left side at rear approx 10 mm and front is 12mm. Rear springs are within 1mm when removed as is fronts. Have put a 6mm spacer in front and still same . Have also swapped the left front to other side and still same sag on left. Anyone got any thoughts. Annoys the hell as is very noticeable from behind. Have thought about putting a 50 kg bag of sand in the boot on RHS to compensate.
Cheers
Dave

Putting the H back in the Q.

It all started when me boy drove in the drive in the old 74 HQ Ute, bought back memories of my past Hz, WB and HT rides, "why did I not look after them". HOLDENS were in the family tree, as the folks bought a brand new HQ for $3200.oo, back then that was over committed and mother was threatening to leave, at lease I would get to sit in the front seat, as every Sunday we always drove to Auckland looking at cars and boats (although never buying any we got fresh bread from Te Kauwhata on the way home).

Help with best budget builds!! Calling all old school 308 & 253 people!

**************ALL INPUTS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!*********

Ok, I am requesting a bit of help from some of the old school engine builders.

I'm currently restoring a HQ 1971 style side ute.
Ground up restoration, the motor in it was down on compression and at the time I had thoughts of going a LS1 / LS3 but after a lot of thought and consideration I am going original V8 to suit the ute.

I have come across a 253 complete AND 308 that's pulled apart, the 253 is a complete runner ready to be bolted in.

These motors are both stock tho....

Radiators

I'm needing to replace my radiator.
Currently has an alloy unit fitted. Came in car at purchase, brand and age unknown. Has blocked cores.

I'm looking at a 3 or 4 row copper/brass unit as a replacement. Similar to original fitted product.
As alloy holds heat and takes longer to cool then copper or brass, as a metal.

Why have these alloy radiators become so popular?
Because they are cheaper?

Looking for explanations to help guide my decision on best unit to purchase.
