Fitting Torque Converter

Hi,
Can someone help me with a query about a 1976 HJ Kingswood?

I am replacing the auto transmission on my daughter's 1976 Kingswood. I have placed the torque converter into the transmission (bell) housing and ensured the converter is located properly on the shaft. I have also bolted the transmission (bell) housing to the crankcase housing, since the motor (a Red 202) is already mounted on its engine mounts (ie, in the engine bay).

Doors for HZ Wagon

I need to replace the rusted doors on my 79 hz wagon, or get them repaired, was wondering what other models have doors - including rear fold down - that are compatible to fit the hz? any help appreciated. P.S. the site looks great and is alot easier to get around. Thanks for the effort. Ivan.

My Project

hey guys, just wanna start telling you all how my EH is comming along. i bought it over a year ago when i was 13 for $650, it wasnt much just a shell but had not much rust and we already had an engine and it came with a aussie 4 speed. we got it home and over the past year have sanded and painted the under side, replaced all shocks and rubbers, had the springs lowered. its now got the 3 speed colum shift and the shaft in. we took the 179 out of my dads old land rover and have striped it down to the block and getting the rebuild kit soon. we got the paint it is tiger gold mica. and have just painted the bonnet and the dash so we can put the steering box back in. next step is to do the engine paint the car and wire it. but my dad works over seas for 6 weeks on then comes home for 2 weeks so he hasnt got much time to do it. his plan is to do it up to near standered condition and then i can modifiy it to my needs. my plan is to do work to the 179 , black interior, 4 speed floor shift ,bucket seats.i have gotten x2 headers and 186S carbie and a water cooled manifold for free off my auntys partner.ill update u on how the project is coming along
cheers

Drive Train Slack

I have an EH in great condition except: There is some slack in the drive train. There is a bump when the car goes from acceleration to deceleration or from deceleration to acceleration.
When the engine pushes the car it is smooth, and when the momentum of the car drives the engine it is smooth, however when the speed of the engine matches the speed of the car it can cause a significant shudder.
How do I diagnose the exact problem and fix?

carby setup on a 202

I am having trouble tuning up a 202 blue motor.It has a 350 holly (58 jets & a 6.0 power valve)cain manafold,extractors & a mild cam.
when I set the timing to about 4 to 6 tdc the car will run fine around town in light through to heavy acceleration but on the highway sitting on a 100 kph the motor will start pinging going up a hill under moderate power.When I retard the timing back to about 0 to 2 tdc the pinging on the highway stops but the engine will lose power and stall when in town.I have tryed 59 jets,adjusted the fuel mixture and tryed another distributor all to no avail. Does anyone have any suggestions?
