Pedal box, V8 or 6cyl????

Hi all,

Looking for a manual pedal box to go into my VB. Does anyone know if it matters if its out of a V8 or 6cyl because i've noticed some say they are for a V8 and some are for a 6cyl? Mines got a 202 in it if that makes a difference.

Any help much appreciated
Cheers
James

Aftermarket oil pressure sender for 202

Hi all,

I was trying to put the oil pressure sender that I got with my Autometer gauges onto my newly finished 202 and it doesnt fit. Because it is so large it comes in at the slightest angle and causes it to cross thread. Is there a special fitting i can get or something that solves this? If so, does anybody know what its called and even maybe the product number for it.

There are also 2 more pictures attached if you want to take a look.
Thanks for the help.

Cheers
James

At Manheim Salvage Auctions, 79 Commodore VB, 128400 k's.

At Manheim's Auction, Sydney, on Friday, VB Commodore. Interior looks pretty good, engine bay looks stock as a rock. Smashed front and back. 129400k's. May have belonged to an old fella I feel(looking at dashmat lol). They say repairable write off. Good for spares only I feel.

Cheers

VB Diff

Hi Guys , i need a v8 disk brake diff for a VB SLE
4 speed so any ratio from 355, 336 or 3.08 will be fine.
I am in Bendigo, Central Vic. any help appreciated. will travel ( a bit if i can sneak off)if required.
would prefer a slippery but not essential. Havent done the wreckers yet, just seeing if old holdeners have one they can part with that may have a good history. (Getting to old to pull it back out and take back to the wreckers after they swear its fine...) all good.

Locks on a VB

Hi all,

Before i move my VB from the shed to my house i want to replace all the locks and ignition barrel, put central locking and a couple more extra security meaures on it. (Yes i am going over the top you may say but this car is my baby and i dont want it going missing)

My question is will replacing all the locks with something like this: http://www.ebay.com....
make them secure or will any old key still fit them like they do now in mine? (at the moment to unlock the car the key only has to go in about 2mm and u can use absolutely any key to open the doors and drive it)

Play in steering? Lights stuck on High Beam??? Please help.

Hi all,
The VB is getting extremely close to a roadworthy, finished doing the brakes, diff and got the tailshaft in today, took it for a drive and it was a completely different car to drive, sooooooo much smoother than the old diff, accept for one thing, there is still a funny play and a rattle through the steering and its mainly coming from the front left. I've done tie rod ends (that made a huge difference when i did them) and i've done wheel bearings. What else is there to check? Ball Joints maybe? Its manual steering if that makes a difference.

Gearbox changeover queries

Hi all,

As some of you will know I want to put a celica or supra 5 spedd (i'm not 100% sure what one i have but i know its one of them) in my VB. Its currently an auto so its a decent job. If i got it done before i went for the blueslip would they pass it? or will i have to leave the trimatic in, because the trimatic is definately on its last legs and i wouldne be surprised if they didnt pass it depending on what mood its in on the day. Do i need an engineers certificate for a manual changeover?

Cheers

Patching firewall

Hi all,

Need to find a way to fix my dumb mistake. Me being my inexpeirenced (and in this occasion, completely stupid) self, when i drilled through the firewall i drilled right in the open where its realy visible, it looks like sh*t and now i dont even like popping the hood. Whats the simplest way to patch up the holes in the firewall, i dont want to fully smooth it, just patch these holes to neaten it up. I dont want the holes there when i put the new motor in it.

Cheers

202 build update

Hi all,

Just an update on the build of my 202. We got the whole bottom end in today. The guy helping me took the head home with him so he can port it some more for me. He recons that the motor is going to be a weapon for a 202 so i'm pretty excited. He recons it might make over 200hp at the wheels. (I think that might be a bit keen but would love to see it).

Hopefully have the rest of it done and all painted up on saturday

Cheers
James

202 build

Hi all

Well the new motor for the the VB should be done tomorow afternoon hopefully is all goes to plan. I've got a guy building it with me tomorow who knows what hes doing and hopefully we'll have it done by the afternoon. Painted and all. Pity I havnt got a hold of my chrome rocker covers and side plates yet, will have to put the sh*tty looking stock ones with all the paint flaked off them on until i get them

Motor wont be in the car for a few weeks as i need to get it registered but hopefully i'll have a picture to put up of the motor anyway tomorow.
Would like to say a huge thanks to everyone on here who has helped me get everything done on the motor and helped me with all the questions. I would not know as much as i know now nor would my motor be even near this stage.

Rubbers holding exhaust on

Hi all,

What is the name of the 2 rubbers holding the last section of the exhaust on at the very back? I had to replace my rear muffler as it was basiclly see through it had that many holes in it and i got one from a car at pick and payless but it had no rubbers. What is the name of them so i can hopefully get them from repco? A product number would be even better.

Cheers
James
