GREY MOTOR - FREE

I retrieved a Grey Motor from the local rubbish dump for free. The engine number is B168328 and I believe it was from an FB or EK Ute. In the steel pile was a couple of front guards but they appeared to be totally stuffed. There was also a front bench seat which was bent and in a very sad state. It had metal trim around the base and seat adjuster area which I think is ute and van only?

What car wash do you use?

I've used Maguairs Soft Wash Gel for years (the pretty pink stuff). I find it cleans well and leaves a good shine.
The last time I went to get some, the Maguairs Ultimate Wash & Wax (the yellow stuff) was on special so I gave it a try. I really don't think it's as good.
I noticed the ingredients list the other day. it contains Sodium Chloride. Salt. The mortal enemy of metal. That's probably why there is nothing on the bottle about being ph neutral. Which probably means it's acidic.
Am I worrying too much? Is salt in all car washes?

EH Engine Issue - advice needed :-(

After over 30 years of ownership I have given my EH a treat and reconditioned engine,gearbox, diff, brakes and suspension. All work was done by professionals as my ability is a little limited.
After all that I am left with an issue with the engine.
This is what we did.....
-rebore to 186
-new pistons, bearings etc.
-'stage 1 ' cam whatever that means
-bigger valves with hard seats for unleaded
-original cast headers
-electronic ignition
-Holley 350 on alum manifold

After a little rework the engine was running sweet and strong.

HZ fuel line

Hi, I bough my HZ panel van about two months ago. It is log only with the petrol tank, lines and filled removed. I'm removing the log as it needs replacing. I'm trying to find info on the fuel line from the tank. I have looked on the net and in manuals. Does anyone have a diagram of where the line goes and what size? Thanks. Ric

Restore or enjoy the patina?

I was doing a bus route run on Friday afternoon and saw this on the side of the road in clean up pile out the front of a house.
The word Sidchrome got me in.
The bus had about 20 people on it. I was going to stop and grab it, but I though stopping the bus to pick up rubbish from the side of the road wasn't a good look.
I went back into town on Saturday morning to do some shopping and it was still there.
The bloke at the house couldn't understand why I would want his rubbish.

gday all,

can anyone pls recommend me a good, honest, trustworthy, aussie,
competent car stero installer in the southern suburbs of sydney?

even a good auto-electrician is so hard to find these days - i dont really know any that i can 100% trust.
