Steering Box

I have to replace my steering box and was wondering whether i could just buy a power steering unit(does this have its own kind of steering box?) or will i still have to fork out for a reconditioned box and then add on power steering?

Cheers

Wiring Diagram Needed

I was hoping someone might send me a photo copy of the under dash wiring diagram of a HQ, I have looked everywhere for a second hand manual but cant find one, some idiot has made a major mess under the dash of my ute, ive only had the beast for a month and the itch to start restoring things is taking hold.

Cheers

red light, blue light

guys

Just thinking then that i have no idea what the differences are between blue and red holden engines, both 6's and 8's. i did a quick websearch and found not a clue. So what are the principal mechanical differences between the two, particularly in the case of the 253? i'm sure lots of people know, but I'm something of a novice, so bear with me.

15 x 8 or 15 X 7 tyres etc for WB ute

Gurus,

I would appreciate some advice in regards to rim size. Firstly, I and considering increasing the wheel size from
14" to 15"(either dragways or magnums - if I can find them). I am considering either 7" or 8" tyres. I am concerned that 8" tyres will possibly rub on the guards? Any opinions? any advice Will
8" be too big if I want to lower the suspension? Does any one know the offset for a wb ute

HQ GTS Monaro

Hey guys...

After looking for about 2 years I finally bought my car. I am the proud 3rd owner and the car is a gem. The 253 in it is the orginal motor, it runs ok but is a bit tired. The door rubbers are shot on both doors and if I was to do that I would also go around the quarter windows. Has anyone had similar work done to there holden ? If so how much did it cost and where did you get it done ( I am in the Sydney area so it would hav eto be around there )I would give it a go myself but am too scared I'd scratch or break something. Also I would like to put in a mild cam and do some engine work, would anyone be able to tell me what would be the best thing to do and what sort of bucks would it set me back...

starfirer motor

If i were to change my vh engine (starfire) and changed it to a 202 black (vk) would i have to change the bellhousing? The transmission is an old stock 4 speed. If you do have to change bellhousing could you please tell me what to change it to and how much it may cost.

She needs new paint job

I took my van that has pretty badly degraded paint over the bonnet, roof etc to about 8 local panel beaters for an opinion and only one said he would touch it. He wanted about $8grand to repair and paint although he wasn't all that keen in doing it.

It's not so much the money, although it sounds a lot, but the fact that I couldn't get anyone interested. The others said that there was no money in this and they only wanted to do smash repairs.
