HT Power Steering Clearance

Hi All

Been a while...so long so my sign in doesn't seem to work.

I'm just reaching out to the you all to ask if anyone knows if HT V8's had a different sump between manual and power steering options? We have had power steering in our HT (out of a Brougham) for the last 15 years with all working well and all of a sudden we have been pulled up on the PS Ram touching the bottom of the sump. The only thing to have occurred to the car since it was put in is new engine mounts about 4 years ago which I would have thought if anything would have lifted the engine up?

Which Alternator HT v8?

took my alternator in to the auto electricians to replace. Apparently they don't just bolt in anymore. Mine is an old style with the pronged plastic pin at the top with an external regulator and will need some wiring done because the new ones only have an internal regulator. I don't know electric stuff but just wanted to know is the the best way these days? Apparently better and more reliable. They don't rebuild them anymore apparently

Putting a 161 head on blue 202 head
Do you have to drill out the water jackets in the block to suit the 161 head (use 161 head gasket as a template)

What push rods do you use

Do you have to do anything else

Old Holden seats???

Just wondering if anyone can tell me what model these seats are out of? They're too wide by a fair bit for my HT wagon so would like to find out what they're from.

HKTG fans - New poll posted

Which style mags best suit HKTG holdens?
(vote bottom RHS of page.)
This one is a tricky one for me. I reckon quite a few of the old school mag styles suit. I Have a set of deep dish 5 slotters I pulled of my kingswood 25 years ago and im going to start cleaning them up and polishing them over the next few weeks & months.
The standard rims and spats are coming off. I'm losing the sleeper look!
