HG Holden rear drum brake differences

Recently changed the diff in my HG. The car had four wheel drum brakes however the rear drums on the new diff have the different wheel cylinders and shoes that were used on disc front cars. Since the swap the car seems to be worse under braking. I had simply assumed they would be similar in performance has anyone else run into an issue using disc front rear drum brakes with drums up front aswell?

HG 186 Trimatic to Manual

Hi All.
My HG Van now has the sub frames reattached and the front suspension will go back in next week.
It was last fitted with 186 trimatic but should be 161 and 3 on the tree. I have a 161 already but don't have a manual column and pedal box along with the clutch, gear linkages and 3 speed box.

161 head on blue 202 block

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

Ignition coil wiring for gts dash

Hey guys I installed my new Bosch GT40R coil in my 253 blue motor in my Hg wagon I put it in after a very long stressful day and wired the resistor wire to negative and dizzy to positive (very simple and stupid mistake) upon starting the car I’ve realised that the fast idle for the choke is no longer engaging and causing the car to not warm up. what could this be have I damaged something wiring up the opposite way.

cinnamon brown HG

My 2nd car was a cinnamon brown HG like this ($400 from an old lady in Taree) .
Mine didn't have the spats, unusual rear boot badge or the unusual colour coded boot either. I dont think that's factory but (I cant belive im saying this) That is a VERY nice car and I actually like the colour now (I called mine poo brown and hated it back in the day)
