ENGINE SPECS wanted

Hey all, I currently have a VL commie with the Nissan 3L and a 5-speed gearabox which absolutley flys but it just hasn't got that V8 GRUNT so I've already got a VL Vacationer with a Peter Brock 304 V8(blue motor) special lined up.....I was wondering if any knows if I can do my mods eg. 350 holley and stage 3 cam (for starters) without having to strengthen the springs etc.....or being the Brock 304 is it already plenty strong enough for that???????? thanks a bunch! BLAKE
P.S.does any1 know if I'm right about the 304 coming out with a 122kW standard???

If you can't find 'em....

Greetings. Have an EH with original 149 motor & 3spd manual gearbox. Replaced the master cylinder and cleaned out the system (after 10 years off the road) about 18 months ago. The problem is that when she gets hot, either from the weather (this IS Perth, +40 degrees the past week) or after about half an hour of traffic, she grinds terribly when shifting up from 2nd to 3rd. I try to avoid this by double clutching, but I'd still like the problem to go away.

Any thoughts why this may be happening and what can I do to prevent it?

Premier bumper overriders

I've heard that EJ premiers had overriders on the rear bumper as well as the front. (All EJ's had front overriders.) In all thre holden books & mags I've seen,I have never seen a photo of an original EJ premier showing the rear end.
Can anyone tell me if it is true that they had rear overriders, as mine doesn't and is generally very original but had a rear end prang some years ago.
If so, are they the same as the front overriders?
