From the bodgy forum

What motor did the 1970 Monaro operate.

Hi all.

Can you please help. We are about to start work on our 1970 Monaro GTS that is running a 308 engine. Yes we are located in South Africa and we plan to race this car in the Historical section here in Pretoria next year.

The ruling is that we can only run an engine that the car was manufactured with and operated with when it first came out. Can anyone help me with qaulifed data. What engines did the 1969-1970 Monaro have, I know they had the 308 and the 350 Chev motor, did they ever come out with any other engines then these.

The reason I am asking is that we Australians representing Auystralia here in South Africa want to show the local RSA drivers we have a car that is quick and handles well. Would love to fit a worked 454 but I feel this may not be allowed. Please any feed back appreciated.

Cheers
David Saunders

save the oldholden

I will first state that I have very little insite into the workings on running or maintaining a web site.
But have you considered selling advertising space or even a change to a server that provides a reduced running cost for the right to use "pop up's" or sponsered add's. such as "bravenet.com" do,(same server that monaro.com.. use), it is just a thorght to try and keep the most informative old holden web site going.
Also a very big THANKYOU for keeping it going for this long.

Webbers or SUs?'

Hey guys, I am currently building up a 186 and need some advice in regards to carburation. I am set on putting a set of tripples on, but what to use?. Can anyone tell me from experience which are the better performers the webbers or the SUs?. I know I could stick a 350 Holley on, or fuel inject it, but thats not what i'm into. Any comments will be greatly taken into account, cheers.'

Paint touch ups

I have a red hq ute and the tarp has worn the paint. I was looking at getting a flat tarp but everyone I have talked to has said theres no way to have the paint repaired without getting a full respray. It has worn down to the metal on a few different spots. Is there simply no way of having it repaired? Also I want to remove the tarp hooks and have the holes filled and painted. Any help would be appreciated. -Deano'

interior paint

the people who owned my car before i did resprayed the inside of the car from green to black, but when they did, they didnt cover anything up. so there is black interior paint on the paintwork of the car. is there anyway of removing the black without taking the colour of the car as well?

thanx

LC respray

I have recently bought a 2 door LC rolling shell, completely bare. It is already completely sandblasted, the body having virtually no rust and only slight bodywork having been done. The bottom rear 1/4s have been replaced and GTR flutes welded in the front 1/4's. Also there are small imperfections to some panels (mainly front guards), but definitely no major dents. Other than that the body is quite good. I am wondering if anyone can give me a ballpark figure on the cost of preparing and straightening the body and to then have it resprayed?

Re: Link to the net

OldHolden.com is run off a 56 modem (at my place) and a cable account (at a mates place). Now the question has been asked, Does oldholden do that much as the MB are getting maxed out way before the end of the month.(A:YES)
I can see this coming to an abrupt phone call which will be down the lines of...Mate we got to do something about this like last month already !

So, to keep the MB down and my mate away from the switch, here are some ideas....

1. ditch the gallery and most of the stuff that is not used. Just keep the board and maybe update it a bit.

2. ditch the free users pages and club domains ( only kidding, i hope)

3. get some more cable accounts working for us. This can be done with just the account or a quick firewall box at your place(gold coast please)

4. Move oldholden overseas as the MB are cheap. :(
5. Keep it all up and in Australia. I can get great deals in data centers on the Gold Coast. (under 6-7c MB)

Help us work this out. comment or email.
