Cam change with engine still in car?

Hey guys, Just wondering if it's possible to do a cam, lifters and timing chain swap on a HJ Statesman without pulling the engine?
Thanks for any advice.

HJ front end alignment issue

Hello, I have just replaced all front end steering and braking components and the drivers side wheel now sits on an angle when the steering wheel us straight.... at first I thought this was just a simple wheel alignment fix, but the more I look at it, it could be a wrongly adjusted tie rod on the drivers side?

Do you guys think I should remove the tie rod and shorten the length to pull the wheel straight?
Thanks

Fan blower motor bearing repair

Hi all

I have a HJ Caprice 1976. It's the "stronger" 4-speed fan used for the factory aircon. As per usual, the heater / A/C fan motor is squawky and generally noisy. I've purchased another used one at not an insignificant price and, despite the seller (and I) testing it before mounting where it appeared to be OK, it too is noisy - probably worse.

Electric fuel pump into hj

Hi, does anyone know the best way to modify a fuel tank for a hj sedan to run an electric fuel pump or the best way to set them up?
Ive read alot of forums and dr terry on here gave a solution with putting in a tank out of a vp/vr commy and get spout welded in, but that was 6yrs ago.
Theres also a place over east that can modify an original tank for 600.
Cheers in advance

HJ gauges not working

Hi all,

Recently the gauges in my HJ all stopped working (Fuel, Temp & Oil pressure).

They were all working, although not with any great accuracy, but suddenly stopped. Speedo and all the warning lights seem to work fine.

I have read here about the voltage regulators causing this type of thing on HZ, could this be the cause on a HJ and if so, how can I fix it ?

Thanks in advance.

Changing single leaking intake manifold bolts

I have recently changed my leaking 253 v8 intake manifold gasket (twice) using gasket sealant front and rear instead of cork but have since found a weaping leak which is not taking up after a couple of months. The leak is from a couple of the bolts which go into the water jacket.. and from memory the bolts had rust imperfections but i reused them in a hurry.

Can i swap out only the weaping bolts without taking the entire manifold off again?
