UC Diff

Greetings everyone. Have just had the starfire motor go in a 1979 UC Torana. We are looking at replacing with a 186 or 202 motor.
Just wondering if the rear axle will need to be replaced or is it strong enough for the horse increase? Also does the brake booster or front end need any work/ modification?

Cheers and happy driving!

"If you go down to the shed today"

The kids have been behaving of late..so better look after them & get the little terra going again.
When it goes, it goes well..but I seemed to spend more time pushing the little bugger than spectating!!.
Problem solved..remove original coil & magneto, chuck over left sholder!!. Add 6v. bike battery,toggle switch, HQ coil, condensor & #5 plug lead..now it stars by just spining the back wheel while its on a block.
Just had a "test flight" down the drive-way..heh,heh..yes I know its dark..thats why I had the Dolphin torch between my feet!!.
Its not built for bigger people like me, so steer one handed & work the pedals with the other!!
Other Holden bits??...202 push-rod for brake cable outer, Torana Saas s/wheel & groovy inline 3speed shifter.

"Can I put interceptor rims on my....???"

Getting hard to find skinny 16" tyres!!
Used a couple of old commodore rotors, 2 VP "ute" rims, 235/75 15 tyres & some fidling with the bearings, there ya have it..a "front wheel assist" Fergy!!
The local bearing bloke was a big help, belive it or not, the bearings a std. Holden!!, the difference being the inners have the seal moulded to them, made fitting much easier.

Twin Pipes

Can anyone tell me if a mandrel bent twin 3 inch system would be of advantage on a pretty hotted up 355 EFI stroker?? This would be from the Catalytic converters back, so really a cat back system

Currently running a press bent twin 2.5 inch system with single straight through mufflers and it just doesnt have the sound im after, it should be alot deeper at idle and not blap as much at revs. The majority of the system is left over from what was on the ute when i bought it, ive since implanted the stroker in, pacemaker comp headers and twin berklee cats.

Any help appreciated

more of MrHQGts' work

this is the nicest flight of black-butt stairs i have ever done!!!! after the orbital, the process involves cutting back each stringer, face and tread by hand to get the desired results..(well worth it)customers were an up-market bed and breakfast in tintenbar, northern n.s.w, stairs are in the care-takers/owners residence.....

the more of these i do the more money i get to spend on the naro!!!!!
