Rear end brakes with HR disc brakes

Im having troubles with my rear brakes locking up on my FE. I am running a HR disc brake front end (with booster) and a drum rear end from a HR that had drums all round.

Someonesaid that they thought the rear brakes from a disc brake car where different to those of a drums all round car.

Can anyone confirm and give me details? Is there a mod I can do to my current rear setup to suit a disc front end? '

Monaro ID tags'

Any one out there got a set of ID tags for a HQ monaro coupe, not the LS or GTS but a stock monaro, like a two door Kingswood with no fancy stuff, the code Im after is 80337 or 80437. I will need all 3 tag's (body plate, build code and ADR/vin plate), as the coupe shell I've got has none, because it was going to be used as a stock car and the tag's were destroyed, {just so you know it aint stolen} .

trimatic woes

Can anyone out there tell me if anything different has to be performed when re-linking a trimatic other than fluid replacement which would give the following problems? I changed a 202 to a 186/208 stroker with a 2000 stall convertor and have now got bad power (especially uphill), wont change from 1st, weird rattling noise from the tranny, and very hard to change gears. This is all topped off with the noise building up...
I cant believe the trimatic decided to pack it in at exactly same time of motor change...

After All It Could Be An Astra

Hello, Im after some help please. I have an N12 Pulsar (82-85 Astra), and (I would just like to add, MASSIVE HOLDEN FAN, I have me one!!) I'm experiencing hesitation at take-off. What actually happens is, as I go to take off, she tries to stall and then putts along on three cylinders, then after she hits 2500 rpm she takes off like a rocket. If I load her up hills in third(auto) she's doung about 2200 and she wil start to surge and cut out momentartly.
I have renewed the Carby and replaced the pionts and plugs, I run her on Premiunm ULP (optimax or BHP Premium) at 5 Degres ATDC, the dizzy has no cracks and the coil's not over heating and the leads are in good order. I'm at my wits end here, I know one of you Holden lovers would have come across this once before?? Oh and no water in the tank.
Please any help would be of great benifit.
Thanks Paul

P.S I know this is an OldHolden site but anything a day old from new is considered OLD!'

EFI 5.0L

Hello to all my fellow holden drivers out there. Does anyone know where i can pick up an injected 5.0L and possibly computer in perth. I am looking at putting one into my kingswood as it is beginning to get restored. The car goes into the panel beaters in about 5 weeks and so as i am pulling out the motor and all that i might was well put something a little more beefy back in. Any info with names or websites would be most appreciated. Thanks
Matt
