severe need of help

im sure we get this question a lot, but i need some severe help in terms of modifying my hq's 202!! i need some serious advice on how to increase my top end power, torque, exhaust note, response. I want to stick with carby and manifold, but as it is an auto, are triples too hard too tune? By the way my car is an original prem with only 91060 kms on the clock with all the log books!! P.S:any carby\manifold ideas?

Monaro For Sale

Hi everyone, my name is Aaron. I have a 1971 HQ Monaro Coupe for sale. Gun-metal grey, warm 308 motor, Holley 600, Extractors, Power Steer, Central Locking, Automatic, Low Profile and looks great. The car is unregistered but would not take much work to get back in order, such as new exhaust. There is some rust - mostly paint bubbles - that detract from its looks, but not its performance. I'm only after $2000 and that will stop my wife nagging me about the room it takes up in the garage (some people just don't understand).

carby setup on a 202

I am having trouble tuning up a 202 blue motor.It has a 350 holly (58 jets & a 6.0 power valve)cain manafold,extractors & a mild cam.
when I set the timing to about 4 to 6 tdc the car will run fine around town in light through to heavy acceleration but on the highway sitting on a 100 kph the motor will start pinging going up a hill under moderate power.When I retard the timing back to about 0 to 2 tdc the pinging on the highway stops but the engine will lose power and stall when in town.I have tryed 59 jets,adjusted the fuel mixture and tryed another distributor all to no avail. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Power windows for the HQ

Cheers for the previous help with the HQ questions relating to the nose & seals guys.

I am currently working mainly on the interior of my car before starting the exterior clean up and engine rebuild and had just fitted central locking and will be getting a alarm tomorrow morning and from there was hoping to source a powerr window unit that will work with my car, I have the 4 door sedan has anyone tried throwing a commadore power window unit in? Or does anyone know if this will or wont work.

Also if anyone needs to install central locking in the older cars they might find the spring that holds the lock up or down is a bit strong for some power locking motors but it is easy to unclip and take out and the power locking motor does the same job once attached even if unpowered.

Cheers. david'

Loomking for stuff for my HQ

Im looking for seels (doors, boot, windows) for a 73' HQ, I was wondering if anyone knew where I can get some from and also if I can use second hand ones or not?

I'm also looking to mount bull-bars on the front and was wondering if anyone had done this and how to go about it, I want a simple bar much like the new ISUZU MU's have on them.

Another thing (last one) does anyone know any good old Holden shops/yards/mechanics in New Zealand or on the Gold Coast in Australia I'm trying to aquire a HQ Premier front end.

cheers.

gearbox rubber

I have a HQ kingswood gearbox which has been put into a HR ute,(it is a splitpin gearbox is one terms used for the gearbox), now it is NOT the rubber which covers the actual gearstick it is the rubber which sits beneath that right on the gearbox and it covers the selectors at the bottom of the gearstick,(but is not the boot it is below that, everyone else believes that is what i am talking about), it stops all of the dirt getting amongst the selectors making it harder to change gears.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
