Not really old Holden related, but I wanted to check in and see what everyone was up to.

Its been ages since I have been on here. A mate recently purchased an RA28 Celica and has recruited me to build it. Fair amount of Rust, but im starting on the Worst Panel First (Door) - I figure if i can save it then the rest will be easy.

I bought a little $400 3 in 1 Welder on Ebay, and got some Gas and .6 wire, and must say im impressed how good it is to work with. Costs me $100 a year to rent the Gas, and makes gasless look like a joke.

Budget Air Compressor

Hi guys,

Glad to see the site is up and running again. I don't post very often but I do check it regularly. I am hoping to get an air compressor so i can do a little bit of painting, and to occasionally run an impact gun. I want a 10AMP unit so I can use it anywhere. I will only use it sporadically so I cant justify buying what i really want (a Peerless). So for around the $500 mark Id like to know what people recommend.

Extractors/exhaust

Hi everyone laugh if you want I don't mind but I'm chasin some extractors or exhaust parts for a uc sunbird with the starfire motor.... The car I have is in good nick and I want to keep it original as possible but finding it hard to locate some extractors as most places have binned them now. I realise performance and starfire aren't probably used in the same sentence often just looking for whatever extra I can get out of it! Cheers

Need to re-tap 3x Exhaust Flange Stud holes? What tap's?

Hi, I have a 1981 VC Commodore with Starfire 4cyl Motor.

I'm re-doing the manifold gasket but the 3x exhaust Flange studs are heat rusted solid.
One has snapped off and I've drilled it out close to the thread sides.

The other two are complete but I plan to remove them also.

One of the local stores suggested they were 3/8" studs? Is this correct?

Also I now need to understand what the correct "Tap" is to buy.

Timing gear oiler!

Hey Ben Simpson,
have you ever opened up the timing gear oiler nipple to the next size drill (from 1/16th to 5/64th's) to increase the oil supply on a starfire four? I am told the timing gears rattle a lot and are prone to wearing quickly. Drilling the next size up hole in the oiler is only 25% bigger in diameter, but it equates to about another 50-60% in oil flow/volume.

Cheers, Mick.

Need head assembly help.

Hi, currently assembling a Starfire four engine.
I need some information regarding the assembly of the head gear!
Is anyone familiar with them or have a manual they can refer to or know where to access a detailed pic online?
I can order a workshop manual but it will take several days to get here and I would like to have the engine back together today or tomorrow if possible.

There are four large flat washers, do they go on the inlet or exhaust valve springs?
Also do they go at the top or bottom of the spring?

Efi adapter ring

Hey guys, does anyone know where to get the adaptor ring which welds into a non efi fuel tank/cell so you can run the commodore efi fuel pump? I was reading about it on one of Aussietonner posts but i can't seem to find where to buy the ring. Would anyone have a link?
Thanks in advance, Mark.

1981 rodeo clutch cable

Hey fellas, I know this maybe a long shot but does anyone have/know where to get a clutch cable for a 1981 kb41 rodeo? Apparently they don't make them anymore, I was thinking maybe one of a Gemini would fit, can anyone confirm this?
Thanks.
