Buggered

Help.
Ive just got a set of new tyres for my car but was told the steering rack was absolutely slogged & buggered.
I need a complete new or reconditioned one. Does anyone know who can supply them in the victoria area. How much will it set me back?
Thanks

Interior conversion and Stiff door handles

Does anyone know of a different interior (mainly seats) that will either bolt in or can be put in a vk with little modifications made to them? Has anyone done this before?
I would need a mod plate for different seats, right?

I have very stiff door handles, so i took a look at them they appear to be a little corroded on the inside of the door. Has this happened to anyone before i was just gonna lube them up with some wd-40 or some grease. Does anyone have any advice?

Noise from engine

hey all. ive got another prob with my car

ive finished putting it back together and seems to run fine.. nice and quiet when it idles and it runs smoothly, but while accelerating while its under load, like going up a hill or somthing, it makes this (sort of loud) clicking noise from the engine, at least i think its a "clicking" noise :). I thought it could be the rockers but some people i spoke to who took a drive in it said it sounds more like air coming from the engine (quick bursts of air that sound like clicks). Since it only happens while the car is under load and im accelerating, i dont think it could be rockers. could it be that there is some air pressure that is escaping the engine somewhere? what could the list of problems be? maby the sounds are normal and i shouldnt worry? the sounds were coming before i got a recond head on and now the sound remains. does anyone have an idea

253 engine and gearbox

Hey, I was wondering if it's possible to get 'racing' type flywheels and harmonic balancers for a 253? Ones that are lighter and handle more horsepower (you know the type). Do any companies produce these in Australia?

Also, I am wondering if any of the standard V8 gearboxes (aussie 3, 4, etc) have an overdrive as their final gear, like about a 0.8:1 ratio? Or are all of them direct drive? Cheers

rocker bolt keeps snapping

hey all.

im putting the rocker bolts onto my red 202 and have a slight problem. the bolt connecting the rocker of the exhaust valve on the first cyl (the very first in the line of bolts) keeps snapping. i bought some new bolts to replace the one i snapped from supercheap auto but they also keep snapping. I take it these high tensile ones arent that high tensile. as i am only tightening them to 20 lbs/ft making sure that each cyl is tdc before tightening, i cant see why the first bolt keeps breaking, all the other bolts seem to tighten fine so i dont know what the problem is.

Picnic radio

Recently acquired a "picnic" radio at a flea market.
It is complete with the under dash mounting that it slides into.
I have discovered that the battery that goes in the radio, is 6 volts.
However I'm wondering if the radio works off 12 volts once located in its carrier in the vehicle.
There is some kind of "transformer" at the rear of the carrier, but no voltage notice etc.
Can anyone provide me with more information or a wiring diagram?

308 pre pollution

gday..
can any one tell me if its legal to put a 308 from an HQ into a HJ??...the reason i ask is because the HQ had no pollution gear at all and i thing my HJ(75) is suposed to have some pollution gear.... my HJ was originally a 308 but some [Naughty Pottyword] changed it to a 253..... any way is it legal to do..will it pass a roadworthy??...if its not allowed can you just change the manifold off the 253 to the 308?? because the 253 has the pollution gear...

electric GTS Mirrors, does anyone have a wiring diagram?

i have a set of GTS mirrors that are electric. I do not know how to wire them up. They have 5 wires coming out of them and that is it i dont have a switch for them either. I have been told they are out of a UC sunbird 4 cyl SLE i have looked into these but there is very limited information on them.

Any help to my problem is greatly appreciated.

V8

Can any one tell me what the (external dimensions) smallest V8 is? I want to put one in the van, but without the cylinder heads coming through the floor - so am interested in the smallest package from crossmember to rocker cover leading edge. Does not have to be GMH (cringe).

Regards

Satyr
