octane

I filled my VL this morning at BP with regular unleaded -> 91 octane (premium was 98).
I know what octane means but what ingredients determine a fuels' octane rating or is it more about the refinement of the fuel?

Gearbox selection for LC

I am currently building up a stroked 186 for my 2-door LC. I'm talking performance everything, nothing stock. I wish to put a Supra 5-speed behind it, but I don't know what one to use. Can anybody tell me the part number or what year Supra the gearbox comes out of to suit a performance Holden 6?. Also does anyone have any suggestions on what clutch to use. I want something heavy duty that will handle the revs and still grip tight, at the moment I have no idea. Finally, is a mechanical or hydraulic clutch better for this set up?. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.

More rust

Further to the recent posts in relation to rusty windscreens, does anyone know of a decent body repairer in the Sydney area that is willing to spend a bit of time doing some rust repair on the windscreen of my HK. It seems as if Streetneat's "blast and glass" method is the way to. Let me know if you know any body who uses this method or at the very least someone who doesn't run away when you say the "R" word.

Thanks

Thanks for the tips and stuff. I decided to go with the titanium heads etc. Then the steering whell broke in half and to try and find a buckskin steering wheel is amazing in vic. I have put on a brown one till I find one that I like. I greassed it up with vaseline and had every thing ready for them to just slip on. then they had trouble with the indicator switch as the cog inside was worn on the second hand one as well as the old one. the only thing that doesn't work is the right hand indicator properly. You can use it but you have to hold it on. at least I have windsreen wash now. The hardest part was getting the end off as it was on such and angle in the base of the steering wheel it was hard to remove. I would have been better off paying for the Rare Spares one and it would have been fine.

Transmission problems?

Hello,

I am currently experiencing some very odd problems with my HZ Panelvan, running a 253 with a beefed up trimatic behind her.

When starting her on very cold mornings, I would take off after warming the car up, and if I didnt completely flaw it, the transmission would not click into second, and if I took my foot of the accelerator and then reapplied, the engine the car would go into what feels like a nutural, and just rev and go nowhere. I would have to brake to a stop and start again before it would click into gear.

shagged 4 speed news

G'day again fellas
Its me with the jumpy 4 speed. Just to let the "lhgpoobaa" know he was spot on with his diganosis of my gearbox; totally shagged. i got a look inside it this morning, and the selector sleeve thingy (technical term) and teeth are pretty badly flogged. So it's winding out of first under load and 2nd gear will be next. Lots of bits need to be replaced, for me this spells "bye bye gearbox". The shifter itself was also bollocks; missing the pressure washer, which probably led to the damage. Just wished I'd spotted it when i bought the car, but it shifted sweet then : [

Wiring Woes

I'm trying to wire a WB Statesman column into the Qute and have run into a problem that has me baffled...

I made up a conversion wiring diagram from the HQ and WB wiring diagrams and it all looks fairly straight forward (connect lt blue to lt blue, etc). The indicators had me stumped for a while until I discovered that the yellow feed for one of the rear indicators turns lt blue in the middle of the WB loom...
