New Project.....

well i finally went out and bought my HQ panelvan as i have said i would, as always its a fixer-upper, it currently has a 202, gas and is a nice brown, my main question's at the moment are, what areas are panelvans known for the cancer (rust), and secondly how do i go about fitting a HQ premier front end and GTS guards? is it particularly difficult?
regards

Rahman

What replacement cam 4 my red, U-EGR 253 dual fuel?

Hello all,

Can anyone recommend a cam & lifters to get?

253 Red, U shaped EGR port, Quadrajet, 4-2-1 full dual system (1.75 inch each side). Dual fuel (solenoid) , about to get a nice "pot" mixer sittin on top of the carb instead of the silly old manual "over the side" LP mixer.

Has shagged cam (lost a lob or few!), rockers, pivots & pushrods. Don't know how, but all valves/giudes/retainers and spings are OK.

253 with no timing chain tensioner?

First off, hi all.

I have just aquired a clean 72 HQ Panelvan, with an early commodore vintage (U shaped EGR port) 253, with a set of 4-2-1 extractors, and is also duial fuel.

The lifters, pushrods, rockers and rocker pivots are mostly shagged from a lack of oil. ( I got the car with these bits sittin in the rocker covers, with the manifold, carby & dizzy sitting in the passenger footwell!)

Headers or Extractors

Reading the modifications for the HT, aren't headers and extractors one and the same? What is the difference? I thought "headers" was the American term for extractors.
Cheers.

Red Motor Power Steering Pump

Hi guys,

I am changing my HQ to power steering which I am mounting on the 202 until an RB30 replaces it later this year.

I have bolted the pump bracket onto the motor (the only way around that it can go) but the pulley on the pump sits a LONG way forward. It looks like the accessory drive belt pulley on the crank should have an extra 2 belts between the fan belt and the steering belt. The pump came off a WB V8. None of the manuals I have show a 6 cyl power steering box mounted on the motor.

Generator prob's - help?

I'm hoping someone can provide short term advice while my father/mechanic is unavailable - I'm driving his '71 HQ and know very little about cars. The Generator warning light has come on and I have no idea whether it's dangerous for me to drive while it's on or not... Any advice anyone can give me until I can get someone to check it out would be great...

Blue 202 v Red 202

Can anyone tell me what the main differences are between a 202 red and a 202 Blue?

Are there any power and reliability differences and do they look different physically?

Carburettor Problem.

I put a rebuild kit in my Stromberg WW Carburettor and now when I start the car the engine sounds like it has the accelerator flat to the floor.

I was hoping somebody could give me an idea as to what is wrong with it.

Horn prob

Hi all,

I recently put a new steering wheel on my HQ and I've had a problem with the horn. When I connect all the wires together, the horn just stays on and won't stop, so I decided that disconnecting the horn would be the smarter option for now believe it or not. I was just wondering if any one would know what the prob is or may be? The boss kit was for actually for a hq aswell.

Any way, any ideas???

HQ Ute Shell

I have a 1972 HQ ute that I have had for a while and am going to restore. The body is pretty rooted. It had rusted out in the sills, in the tray and around the back wheel arches and one of the previous owners has bogged it all up. This has not done the ute a big favour as dirt and crap has built up on the bog and it has all rusted out even more around the wheel arches. As I was inspecting it not long ago a large chunk of this bog and rust and dirt came out in my hands, leaving a gaping hole in the panel. The rust in the sills is also pretty bad and the tray isn't in the best condition.
