HR special wagon rear door interior light switches

I have a HR special wagon and i have noticed the rear doors have interior light switches on them. From looking at the wiring and comparing the front and rear switches it appears the rear light switches have been installed by a previous owner. Did the HR special come with rear door switches or is this an aftermarket addition a previous owner installed?

Carby info

Hey peoples,
was wondering what carby I should put on my red 202 3.3L. for my HR
Is there much much difference between a double barrel stromy or a 350 holley? I want something that I dont have to worry about and something that wont suck to much juice. i have a 2 inch exhaust straight through. So I have to get the manifold. Would I need extractors?
Cheers

HR Ute Modifications

Hi,
I've just got my first Hr and it has a 186 in it and it its a bit slow. I want 202 motor in it or i could put in a bigger and better carby(What type) and extractors but at a larger price. What do you think?

Also the inside the roof the the interior is all ripped and looks impossible to fix. Do you know any way cheap to patch it up (maybe some sort of adhesive material)?

Ive got bucket seats but i want a bench seat for 3 people. Do u have 1?

Also any help in finding out what the engine is in my HR i think it's a 186 but i don't know how to tell the difference, i do know it has a webber on it and extractors and a two speed power glide which drops out of gear and changes from 1st to 2nd very quickly. If anybody could help me i would be most greatfull.

Motor run in

I just got a 202 motor dropped in

The run in leaflet says to accelerate to 60-90km/h in low gear (2nd in auto) for 6-7 times a drive.

Ive got a 3 on tree. Does that mean to over rev in 1st gear to 60km/h???

Cheers

Advice on engine transplant needed.

Hi all,
Has anyone had any dealings with the Nissan VH41 4.1ltr quad cam alloy V8? I'm thinking of putting one in my HR wagon but cant find much info on it. I know that in stock form it puts out over 200kw and revs its tits off. I know brakes and driveline will need to be beefed. Also, if it can actually be fitted, would it be better retaining factory injection or running straight gas for rego and performance?(The car is currrently dual fuel) Any constructive advice would be appreciated.
