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)

Ute Wanted - No more jag!!!

Hi,
I was wondering if someone could provide me with some information about purchasing a Holden ute. Having recently re-gasketed the engine and replaced the transmission in my daughter's first car purchase (a 1976 "Golden Holden" Kingswood sedan), I have realised that this vehicle is superior in many ways to my 1978 V12 Jag coupe.

So, I am wondering what I should really pay for a HJ Kingswood ute. Probably around the 1970's vinatge. I am wanting one with minimal panel damage, body rust, etc. The colour and cosmetic appearance is not important to me. I am not fussed about the motor. Ideally it should be running (or nearly running). It might have a 202 motor and a manual is preferable. Except for the motor, I am wanting it in a RWC or near to road-worthy.

Monaro exhaust

I'm after a new exhaust for my 5.0Lt HJ Monaro, as I have already fitted 4-2-1 headers i was thinking of a twin 2 1/2" with straight through mufflers and a couple of hotdogs for a better note. Any other recomendations? or would i be better off with a twin 2 1/4"? also whats the average price for the supply and fit of a system like this? Thanx -Brett

Fitting Torque Converter

Hi,
Can someone help me with a query about a 1976 HJ Kingswood?

I am replacing the auto transmission on my daughter's 1976 Kingswood. I have placed the torque converter into the transmission (bell) housing and ensured the converter is located properly on the shaft. I have also bolted the transmission (bell) housing to the crankcase housing, since the motor (a Red 202) is already mounted on its engine mounts (ie, in the engine bay).

I have had her for 8 years and everything is still original, straight out of the factory, still has B&W plates ! The old six is getting a bit tired but I dont want to do anything drastic, just a rebuild/freshen up.The plan is to do engine/suspension etc. first then respray and retrim in orig. colours of Persian Sand (body) & Antelope (roof). Everything is orig. spec except for a 2and 1/4 exhaust which is just about rooted.

Console

Hello,
Does anyone have a floor console forsale, or knows where i can get one from! I have thought of making one up,but i don know where to start! But that's if it is impossible to get one second hand! I own a HJ Panel Van with a three speed trimatic. I bought the car and have been doing it up, but the car currently only has a T shift coming out of the floor with nothing over it or around it. Also, does anyone know if this is a road worthy issue?

Your ideas will be much appreciated. Cheers...'

No turn Over

My 253 red will not turn over. I have taken the starter motor out and replaced the solenoide and tested the motor and it all works perfect.

But as soon as i fit it, the starter will not turn over. The car did used to turn over fine but recently it has just stoped.

My questions are: There are three wire going down to the starter, brown/purple/red, what are these supposed to connect to? in the book it only shows 2 wires? confused!! Can the ignition switch be shagged? What would be the best thing to do?

Your ideas are much appreciated

Water in oil

I own a HJ PV 253, and i have found that the oil inside, at the top of the rockers covers have a slight layer of creamy looking oil, obviously this is water mixing with the oil. But the oil in the sump is normal and on top of the valves. Is this normal, or could this be a headgasket leak. But there are no bubles forming in the radiator when the enigine is running? Do you have any ideas?

Anyones help is much appreciated.
