253 stalls when put in gear

I have been having trouble every time I put the trimatic in gear in my LX the engine stalls.I have been working on these things for years and am stumped.I have changed carby replaced and checked vacuum lines changed vacuum module on box, it is not idle car run great also has new carby base gasket..
Has any body ever had a busted torque converted which caused the engine to stall. If I rev it up and bang into gear drives perfect up and down the gears but will stall if I slow down before I stop

Importing wheels from u.s.a

Hi guys,
So I’m up to the stage of putting some nice aftermarket wheels on my hz. Just like to know any feedback or anyone with experience in importing wheels from the U.S.
I have found some wheels I want to get on the internet but not sure if you have to order for an American car I.e camaro
Obviously having an hz Holden they don’t have those cars , and just want to know, do you have to order for an American car or does anyone know what American car has the same hubs and stud pattern as Holden hz?
Any feedback much appreciated, Thanks

-V7Y

Question for you all about NSW emission regs of the early eights were they different to the rest of the country? I got told I was wrong at just commodores so I wont ask there again. Was it the case or are they correct and emission laws all ways were uniform across the country? I cant ask the bloke that told me this years ago as hes long dead. What I remember is early commodores sold in NSW had more emission controls than those sold in Victoria was that the case or have I thought this up and got the story wrong and have confused what ADR27c means?
