327 chev

Hello people. Anyone know of places in perth i can go to for 327 chevy motors. It doesn have to have all the running gear as i will rebuild it with my preferred parts anyway. I have decided to go against the GEN 3 as there are too many mods to stuff around with and its too expensive as much as i would have loved to have done it. '

V8 conversion

Hello to fellow holden owners. I currently have a 78 Kingswood SL in relatively good condition. I am looking at restoring it as it was my fathers car who has since passed away back in 90. It currently has a 202 red motor with a couple of minor mods done to it like, electronic ignition, extractors, 308 valves, adjustable main jet, 9" air filter. I am wanting to put a V8 in but indecisive about which way to go as in injected or carby. I have been looking mainly at injected along the lines of a GEN III. TRUE.

too hot hz

I have a 307chev (with warm cam) in my beloved beautifully restored hz ute. The vehicle can run on both gas and petrol. But when on gas she heats up in traffic and dont cool down till rolling. To date I have: added an electric fan, changed the water pump, changed the thermostat for a lower one - with holes drilled in it, added a fancy quadruple core massive radiator and finally added a plastic flexi fan. Anyway my next try will be to dump the mechanical fan, trawl the wreckers for a japanese twin sucking fan and shroud set up. Seems to keep the wifes twin turbo japper cool.

Would love advice!

Hi Fellas (and girls),
I have a blue HZ wagon, powered by the meaty 202, with a 3-speed manual gearbox and the car is 100% stock, and in good condition. I was just chasing some advice from all u hardened veterans out there (Im only on my P's :( ) Ok, firstly, what kind of cost would I be looking at to put a set of 5-spoke mags on my HZ? Im not sure about wheel size, but I could find out.
Secondly, where in NSW (preferably near Tweed Heads) would I be able to get reliable parts such as extractors, exhaust etc? If I were to do my HZ up, what would u guys recommend, ie. what components should I change, keeping in mind that I'm more concerned about how she looks than how she purrs just now. And finally, where would I have any of the original moroon upholstery repaired/replaced?
Thanx heaps for ure time,
Ben'

overheating hx ute

Hey Guys
I am poor - want to know why? I am poor because of the bad advice that people keep giving me. I have a 307chev (with warm cam) in my beloved beautifully restored hz ute. The vehicle can run on both gas and petrol. But when on gas she heats up in traffic and dont cool down till rolling. To date I have: added an electric fan, changed the water pump, changed the thermostat for a lower one - with holes drilled in it, added a fancy quadruple core massive radiator and finally added a plastic flexi fan. Every time I embarked on each of these measures the gumball mechanics/shop assistants would tell that this will cure it for sure (where is the accountability - in my job if i got it this badly wrong i would be taken to court and literally sued for millions).
Anyway my next try will be to dump the mechanical fan, trawl the wreckers for a japanese twin sucking fan and shroud set up. Seems to keep the wifes twin turbo japper cool.
What do you all think? I have I missed anything? Advice and donations of large amounts of cash welcome.

HZ Statesman + heater installation

Gday all!

A couple of questions if I may, regarding my HZ Statesman:

1. With a new heater core on the way from Rare Spares, I'm going to tackle the install myself. Any tips or tricks? Does the whole LHS of the dash from glovebox down need to be pulled out (as appears to be the case)?
