HX

WANTED TO BUY

Hi all,
Just wondering if anyone has something old and rusty for sale that has a V8 and would be fun to take to a dirt drag meet for a bit of fun.
Looking at the lower end of the budget so it doesn't need to look good, just needs to have a bit of go.

Cheers,
Glenn.

Sled - slowest birthday ever

Here she is at Romano Puntin's getting the suicide door conversion. It might be painful and slow, but at least it's expensive.

The Sled

Image: 

Taken when we bought her. Stock 308, T400 3.36, mint Kinger interior (well, no back seat) and stato dash, Externally it's all WB Caprice, as is the rolling front end. Last few years she's had a stout 360 cube stroker engine with Bob Sherry VN heads, decent gas Waggot cam, straight cut timing gear drive, forged pistons, Harrop dual plane inlet manifold, twin inverters, MSD ignition and an inadequate Technocarb turning a beefed up T700 trans. The 3.36 diff in this combo makes the electric overdrive absolutely useless in terms of fuel efficiency etc, so a 3.55 would have been the go I expect.

Aftermarket EFI for 253 Holden

I have a stock HX 253 Holden Premier, original as they come, and have been looking at fitting an aftermarket efi system. I understand the ‘just put an injected 308 out of a VN’ line, however, my mantra for restoration is to keep the car original as possible, making some reasonable and sensible compromises to increase the drivability. I’m after a weekend cruiser, not a burnout machine! I am not at all interested in massive power gains, and want the capacity to convert the engine back to 100% original relatively quickly and easily.

I’ve been looking at two aftermarket efi systems in particular. The Holley Avenger 550-200 2bbl throttle body fuel injected system and the Edelbrock E-Street Universal throttle body EFI system.

Lots of old Holdens and Memories on my youth...

Growing up in the 70's and 80's wasn't complicated, unlike the kids of today. If you get a chance and your 40 + give it a viewing..

It was originally a 253, Engine No. QR806037

308 oil pumps... Why a heavy one and a light one?

Hey there guys, I have a question for you holden Guru's. I purchased a 308 in pieces for my HX sandman. In the parts I found 2 oil pumps, one is red and really heavy, the other is not painted and super light. What are these off or what are the differences, the weight difference is so vast that I had to check that they both had gears, they certainly do. Externally I can't see any differences, but you pick one up and it is about the weight of a rochester carb, the light one is about the weight of a fuel pump - big difference!

I am just interested in what they came off, or is one early/late, high/low volume...

some rust in the ute

This is about the worst of the rust I have found so far. Looks relatively easy to cut out and weld in a new piece. The floors sills and around wheel arches are all ok.
