whats the best way and product to clean a manifold, its off the engine so i can give it a good scrub, thanks.
I'm in the middle of changing over water pump on my kingswood.
However, the fan pulley bolts are thoroughly seized on the old pump.
After two days (including soaking over night) I was only able to remove 1 bolt and loosen another one.
Does anyone know where I can get a replacement set of bolts for the new pump?
Or is it just time to upgrade to a thermo fan?
I would like to convert a column shift manual in a HZ sedan to a Tbar automatic. Is there a lot of work involved or is it only cutting out the hole for the tbar assembly and welding the mount for the centre console.
Could someone please assist with some information and guidance. I apologise if this is a repeat question.
Cheers and thanks in advance.
I've got an original power aerial from a HQ-WB. Electrically it's fine, but something is preventing the motor from turning. It's definitely getting power, but it refuses to turn under it's own power and is very stiff to try and turn by hand.
Anyone know what the cause could be? I'm thinking bearings for the drive gear/cable spool and worm gear/motor shaft?
I've recently purchased a tidy original well looked after Hq that is in a colour I realy don't like, (orchid metalic) I can't wait to paint it but everyone keeps telling me to keep it original as it will hold its value? The motor is not original so is there any point in keeping it an original colour when the engine is not matching anyway? I would have thought that any restored hq regardless of colour would be worth more than your average rust bucket. would I be stupid to paint it?
Swap meet at New Gisborne Steam Park 29th March ( Sunday next )
I got this highly professional diagram from the Boys at COME when I bought my EFI manifold. I don't have mine connected or up and running yet so I can't tell you from personal experience. It doesn't say which side of the rocker covers the PCV goes but I wouldn't think it would matter? Perhaps someone can clarify that for us.
Apologies, was actually trying to do a search not post.
But if anyone has ideas please reply.
Fitting a 308 with a COME Racing Twin Throttle Body fuel injection manifold.
Think I have most of the hoses sorted but stuck on how to do the PCV setup. Unsure where the outlets from each rocker cover should go.
Kurri Kurri Nostalgia day coming up again.
The Sunday morning (29march) is the best day to go.
Probably up to 500 hundred pre-1978 cars on show.
The Saturday is for yank tanks...probably up to 200??
See ya'all there.

I put my HZ back on the road last week after about 2.5 years of neglect. It is running pretty sweet and after using my 6cyl HK as a daily drive for so long it is nice to have some V8 power! I also purchased some of those 17x8 gts mags for it from Cantebury Tyres down in Vic and they really set off the car.
An American bloke came up to me at a servo in Redfern yesterday and started asking me about my ute, he had ranchero and was asking me if the HZ was a Ford! I set him straight of course, but it was nice to have a chat with a forigner and give him a 5min lesson on Australian cars.
Hey guys, has anyone put IRS out of a commodore into the rear of a hq-wb 1 tonner? The new tonner project is currently stripped down to a bare chassis and so I've been thinking because I already have a complete statesman (which I'm using as a donor car for the ls1 drive train) how hard would it be to swap the irs into the 1 tonner? Has anyone done it before/got any photos or tips?
Otherwise another option I'm considering using is a crewman/vy 1 tonner diff, as it's already leaf sprung and has disc brakes.
I'm just throwing ideas around at the moment but I'll be happy to hear what others have done. Cheers.
