balance pipe?

Anyone know if a balance pipe will quieten down a 2in dual system? I'm running a std 253, std header pipes and just had fitted a dual system. Really cool, meaty sound up to about 2000rpm then gets really brash and noisy. Went to another exhaust bloke, he reckons a balance pipe will make bugger-all difference to noise - better to get new mufflers. Any ideas whether this sound like BS or not?

Some Interesting Monaro Information.

Here is some interesting info i got recently, from none other than Warren Turnbull, Author of 'The Monaro Story'. Thought i might share it with you guys. :)

From: "warrenturnbull"
Subject: [MONARO CLUB] Re: Numbers of High End Monaro's?

Well Trevor there are a lot of numbers out there that are in fact
wrong.

An example of this is the HK Monaro number of 8945. This number is
the "official" number from GMH. But we also know, because they
numbered them, that Sydney and Adelaide made more than this number
between them. Norm Darwin had the right number at 15637.

T/Bar location

I have a 1 tonner coming on the weekend,and I am putting in a T/bar.

Would someone be kind enough to tell how far from the firewall the hole should be. And hole measurements.

No doubt I could perform this task with no major probs,but I would like to just get into it and get it out again without to many adjustments.kik

TURBO 400 problems

Any turbo 400 experts out There. Have trouble with fluid leak. Replaced sump gasket and front seal. Still leaking. The convertor cover gets fluid in it but when I take it of there is no fluid on the convertor or inside the front of the box. Main porblem is it will drop in to park but still rolls. I believe there is a gear and an arm that drops in to it to stop the car from rolling. Can you get at this from removing the sump. Any ideas at all appreciated.

3 Speed Gearbox

Hi all,
I have a question for the technically minded. I am planning to rebuild (or get rebuilt) the original 3 speed non syncro gearbox in my EH. I have no idea of whats inside the box, but am wondering of its possible to get it rebuilt to have syncro between 1st and 2nd gears. Has anyone got any idea what I would pay for a decent rebuild?

Also, I was filling up my EH (a ute) and I got talking with the guy at the servo. He told me that he had an EH ute with the sedan/wagon rectangular EH tail lights? Did the EH ute come out standard with these tail lights?

LPG / Petrol

Hi,
I was just wondering if someone could tell me the approximate cost and how involved it would be to switch my 308 currently running gas through single inlet manifold back to good old petrol. Also if anyone has done this before and had any troubles or has gone through with it and not thought it has been worth it.
any help, ideas, anything really would be appreciated.

cheers Danny

Crank seal

Hi All,

Can someone please help me out with some technical info?

A few weeks ago I replaced the harmonic balancer on my 186 red.
I now have a cronic oil leak at the front of the engine. When I put the new balancer on, I hamered it on (with a hammer and a piece of wood to ensure it went on straight) but I could not get it to go flush to the seal which goes around the crank. does the balancer need to sit flush against this seal to prevent leakage? if so, can someone give me any ideas on how to get the balancer on further.

thanks in advance for any help.

Front Suspension

Gidday to all. I found this site by accident and boy am I happy. I recently purchased an HZ ute. I am in the process of doing it up and have decided to start with the suspension. I have replaced the rear leaf spring bushes and shockies and am stuck on the front end. I have purchased all new parts (bushes, shockies etc) but due to lack of experience, I do not know where to start and which order to do the components in. I have a HZ manual but would really appreciate some experienced advice. All help would be much appreciated.
Tommo.

decoding '79 HZ VIN

Hi again, thanks for the help before with the door trim, i got it off and replaced the lock and now it works a treat.
my old HZ came with the original owners manual (and order sheet for the tasmanian police)
so i looked at the VIN number on the car, and tried to decipher it using the guide in the manual, but all the letter and numbers are in different places than in the guide, i.e
my car's VIN: H 486575 B
example VIN for the deciphering thing: 8N69TFJ500025Z

so what does this mean?
also, the VIN on the order sheet is the same as the one on my car, but the last digit on the car is a Z, instead of a B, which it is on the order sheet.
