308 pre pollution

gday..
can any one tell me if its legal to put a 308 from an HQ into a HJ??...the reason i ask is because the HQ had no pollution gear at all and i thing my HJ(75) is suposed to have some pollution gear.... my HJ was originally a 308 but some [Naughty Pottyword] changed it to a 253..... any way is it legal to do..will it pass a roadworthy??...if its not allowed can you just change the manifold off the 253 to the 308?? because the 253 has the pollution gear...

Old 202

hey all.. I need some advice and info on my engine.

first of all, i want to say that my background on cars is pretty low so if i say somthing which makes no sense or is completely wrong, break it to me slowly.

I noticed recently that my hj (202) was chewing up too much petrol. after speaking with a mate that is pretty handy with cars, we decided to run a compression test on it, which failed miserably. (the worst cyl#3 barely pulled 30psi)

WB GTS GUARDS

Does anybody out there know where I can get some fluted WB guards (GTS). I know the WB did not come out with fluted guards but there are plenty running around with them.

Can anyone tell me where I can get some or maybe details of someone who can make them or alter other guards.

air intake for 308

just wondering if anyone could tell me if i would be wasting my time fitting one or two vacuum cleaner hoses from the front of the car and pointing them flush towards the air cleaner? The engine is a stock 308 except 80% of the time on LPG and stright through exhaust and extractors,
the air filter is a k&n high flow filter.

Would this make any differance regarding performance? I know it will keep her a bit cooler, and how would i go about mixture, for instance going down a freeway? Would it run dry? Cheers for any help with this.

cooling system

does anyone know where i can get a diagram for a cooling system on the 308 or if this setup is right,
the thermostat housing has a larger outlet and 2 small prongs
currently i have a hose from the heater on the firewall to the water pump.
the other heater hose from the firewall goes to the thermostat housing.
the other water pump outlet connects to the manifold on the righthand side (when looking from the front of the car)
