Flywheel questions

G'day guys,
I am chasing some flywheel information.
Firstly is the 253 flywheel heavier than the six cylinder flywheel and will it interchange?
Do the 253 and 308 share the same flywheel?
Are the clutch face areas the same diameter or is the V8 flywheel/s larger?
Sorry for the silly questions fellas, but I am working on a clutch/engine conversion.

Cheers, Mick.

253 rebuild/big ends

My red 253 needs big ends refreshed.

As I have never done any major engine work before, I am wondering how difficult this can be.

Its not a matching numbers car, so would it be better to source a replacement reco motor?

Have looked at engine stands to do the work. But am sceptical about the stands moving/rolling under pressure from loosening and tightening components. Does this occur?

Holden Restoration Project

Hi everybody,

Hope you are all keeping well. My name is Mikey and I'm the proud owner of a recently purchased Holden HQ 1973 Premier.
It's a White model, with a brown vinyl roof in amazing condition considering the age... but it too will require some TLC.
It has the standard V8 engine fit and it's ticking over pretty good, giving that great deep purr that only a V8 engine can deliver.

I'll be beginning the restoration by starting with some rust patches on the body.

Any tips on how to approach the body rust damage??

253 with Holley 650 - What jet size?

Hi All,

I have a 253 in a HZ Pano with a Holley 650 on it, I know the 650 is overkill for a 253 but it's gonna stay, so my question is, what's the best jet size for it?

Cheers
Dean

Recommended panel and paint?

It's time to get our old tonner back on the road and I'm seeking advice regarding any recommended panel and paint guys to cut out some rust (usual places) and get it ready for roadworthy inspection.

This is not a ground up resto, but I'd like to have some confidence in the repairer, that the rust won't break out again after a few months as has happened to me once before.

Can anyone please recommend a good panel and paint shop in the Toowoomba neighbourhood?

Preferably someone who does old Holden work.

HT Power Steer Pitman Arm

G'day,

I've fitted the genuine ram style power steer to my HT and I'm trying to locate the correct Pitman Arm. Anyone know about these?

http://www.ebay.com....

Apparently they use a standard Pitman Arm and remanufacture it to replicate the Power Steer version... Pricey though, $229 delivered...

Starter Solenoid wire broken

Guys
I have a kit to replace the cap and contacts as the old one was smashed. I have found the wire coming from the motor broken (the thicker of the twin wires)and there isn't much poking out...probably only 6mm or so. Can this be fixed? I've tried soldering but it slips off as it's a solid copper wire. Any tricks of the trade for this? Photo attached, it snapped at he first bend.

Hz power steering

Hi all I'm new to the show so be gentle. Anyway I have a question I hope someone can shed some light on it so here goes. I just fitted power steering to my Hz tonna all good until I noticed that the pitman arm is longer by about 5to7 mm. Every pitman arm I've measured has been the same size as the one on my manual box I pulled out which is 177 mm end to end and the one on the power steering box is 185 mm. The longer pitman arm is the same length as the pitman arm on the manual box in my Hqss.

HT/G Front Cross member pics

Hi guys,

Does anyone have any photos or exploded diagram of how the front cross member bolts onto the subframe?

I pulled mine apart over 5 years ago, and am finally putting back together with new rubbers, but want to make sure everything is in the correct order.

Cheers
Dave

ultima schocks

Have Ultima HD shocks #400350L.
Shaft of shock is too broad to fit through opening in lower control arm.
Details for fitment on Ultima page suggests whole may need to be widened for fitment.
Would this be fine to die grind a few mil out of the arm?
