MODEL 'L' 82311 ????

I have had a torana sitting in the shed for years but have never looked at the plates until recently pulling her out to start work. Upon inspection of the body identification plate I noticed it has stamped under MODEL only a single L with the following numbers 82311 but no C or J after the L and before the numbers.the plates are in good condition and there is no marks on the plate where there should be a C or J.So my question is this, 'is this common?

New gearbox old engine

Hello sages of wisdom on old Holden. Does anyone know if there are Holden 4spd boxes that would bolt up to a 138 grey motor with minimal motification. I currently have a grey powered EJ with the stock 3 in the tree. that is due for a rebuild and want to go to a 4 on the floor and keep the grey motor.
Any info would be great.
Cheers

Planning new project FC

Hi all, I am planning my next project by bringing back to life the FC I learnt to drive in. I want to leave the original grey motor in it, but update a few things. I am planning to update to auto transmission using the trimatic conversion kits seen on e-Bay. Has anyone used them and are they worth it?
Secondly, I would like to use a HR front end on it so as to have better brake options. To tie all this together, would a HR auto column work or would I be forced to go rack an pinion due to steering arm positioning etc. Has anyone done this combo previously?

cooling system clean

Hi all;

Would someone be able to advise the best way to clean a Grey Motor cooling system?

The water in mine is muddy brown with a bit of sediment floating in it and I'm about to give it a flush. I've heard that it's best to steer clear of the cleaners as they're a bit savage.

Also, could anyone recommend a good additive for the water?

Any advice much appreciated - thanks in advance!
