RB30 (VL 6) into a VC wagon

I have a VC wagon in reasonable condition, the only problem being some strange gearbox gremlins. I was thinking of replacing the gearbox, and doing a bit of other ancillary upgrading to the car, however, a friend has mentioned that he has a wrecked VL sedan with all mechanicals (engine etc) in good order.

How difficult would it be to transfer the engine and gearbox (manual) into the wagon? Is it a feasible option or should I just replace my trimatic and drive it?

Your comments would be appreciated.

Steering

annoying problem with the power steering in my VC SL Wagon

The steering is very touchy...like full lock from left to right is like 2 full turns!!!! is this normal??????

and also the steering is easy to oversteer as it does not come back to dead ahead...i have to kinda pull it back.

Are these common characteristics of the VC commodore? i am starting to get used to it...in fact the very sensitive steering can be real nice for cornering but the lack of centering is (TYPO;)ting me!

i wanna take that roadworthy tester out the back and *&%^&%^^&

they (batemans auto in werribee victoria) failed my beloved VC commodore wagon for some really stupid and incorrect stuff!

here is an example of things they listed but when i rang vicroads they said those parts should have passed.....

*power wire for sterio running along top inside of the passenger side wheel arch! (not sagging down, not likely to wrap around the wheel...secured safely)

*window rubbers cracked (excuse being that other car's fumes could enter the car!!! bull Sh!t!!!!, the air vents in any car suck in air outside...and other car's fumes as well!!!!!)

*carpet to chassis plastic holder strip thingy not 100% secure on passenger side! (excuse = someone might catch their foot on the carpet and then fall and hit their head........AND AS IF THAT WOULD HAPPEN...ANYWAY ITS A POINT AND LAUGH EVENT!!!!

in other, more straight-forward words, (most)roadworthy inspectors are greedy for your money cause you have to take it back to them and pay again after makin' repairs, and on a power-trip!

B@$T@RD$

(maybe ill calm down soon)'

how long does she have?

well my blue 202 with ***220,000 on the clock*** seemed to be in fine order with no smoke on startup and with no noises other than a tapping from the 5th cyl. (lifters).......

Anyway....as i pulled off the side cover i found HEAPS of black crap that had to be scraped off with an old screwdriver, honestly it was around 5mm thick! i removed the rocker arms and the pushrods for the 5th cyl. and went on to try to take those lifters out.........anyway....they lift out of their hole by about 4mm then just stop....even pliers wont pull the bastards out!

I have been told that this indicates that the cam is so badly worn that the lifters have been forced into a mushroom shape and wont budge!

If i just shove the old girl back together and put up with that darn ticking how many Kms should i get out of her approximately before she (TYPO

Stereo In a VC with GAS

I would like to put two 12" subs and two amps in the boot of my VC. Now normally I would put it against the back seat but I have a Gas tank in there.

Does any one have an idea on what i can do or can you suggest websites of people who have installed stereos into a Vb-VL commodore?

202 blue mods - VC commodore

I have a 202 blue mtr in my VC commodore wagon. The body is straight and in good condition and i really like the car (also some sentemental value).

The standard 202 is just not enough for me though but i dont want to dump in a 308 or 253, i just want to juice up the 202.

I have heard of people using turbos etc but how much boost will a blue in good condition take and should i get bigger valves and a mild cam????? what other stuff can i do to hit around 150KW mark if that is possible????? am i dreaming on that one???

Engine Vibration Problem

I,ve currently got a vibration problem in my 202 trimatic VB. The vibration is present at idle, car not moving, and up to about 2000rpm. It can be felt on the move provided the engine is not under acceleration or deceleration. Definitely not tailshaft balance. Not harmonic balancer. Not loose flex plate. Not loose torque converter. Can the torque converter develop a balance problem internally ??? Any ideas welcome.
