New to old cars: should i go all gas

Hi All

I need to seek some advise.
I have just acquired a 1984 WB panelvan, mostly in original condition, 3.3L blue motor, 3 speed Auto on column.
Just picked van up after first road worthy attempt. Van is dual fuel, gas and petrol. Runs rough on petrol, good on gas.
Has almost all the emission fitting missing.
Speaking with mechanic, I asked is it better to go Gas only, no need for emission fittings. Would need to remove all petrol tank, pump, hoses etc.

Hi,

I took a look at a HR for sale today thanks to a lead from another member here. She needs some work, but perhaps it's priced right.

Any 1977 HX - HZ or LX Torana 202 CI Holden Owners?

Hello 1977 HX-HZ or LX Torana owners with a 202 Cubic Inch engine.

My 202 motor came with a 161 carburettor, air cleaner and inlet manifold fitted to it.

Would it be possible for someone to take some close up photographs of your engine? It would be great to known what is meant to be there and where all the various hoses start and finish at.

Kind Regards
Lionel

Power steering HJ sedan

Hey Guys ,

I have fitted a power steering box to my HJ sedan.
Im pretty sure i took the box off a WB i wrecked years ago.
It has 4 mounting bolts where the old Manual box from the HJ had 3.
Do you think its necessary to drill the chassis to mount the 4th bolt or it will be ok just to run the original 3 ?
Years ago when i changed the one over in the 1 tonner i think it only had 3 .

Cheers Quent...
