What-for a new red door?

A tragedy recently occurred when I busted my (now ex-)girlfirends oldholden. She sent me this info so that I could fix it up for her, but I'm not sure where to start. I thought maybe someone around here could help, if they're in Victoria - or just some advice on how to handle this.

Hot starting problem

Having trouble with my 76 LX Torana not starting when its hot. It doesn run hot, just won't start at operating temp. I've heard suggestions like vaporised fuel in the carby, problems with the condenser in the distributor and maby a crack in the head leading to a loss of compression. Has anyone had a problem like this?

Also, What is the general consensus about lead replacement petrol? Are there any fuel additives worth using?

Thanks,

Philip.

General maintence

To get the ball rolling so to speak, one of the first questions I am asked (after the usual, Are you a Holden mechanic mate?) is , Can you have a look at me car I think something is wrong, or How can I get it to go FASTER ?
And the usual answers are ; Your right there is something wrong with your car. And there are heaps of ways to get it to go faster, it just depends how much money you want to spend. Remember the faster you go the more it costs , it is really that simple.
A common sense approach to your vehicle is by far the safest and best way to approach any repairs, mods, adjustments. I am amazed daily to see what people pay to have done to their vehicles, when with a bit of time and care you can save some serious $$ and learn something too, sounds like fun ?
I hope that I can answer questions you may have in regards to your HOLDEN.
I will be posting an article on routine servicing soon

Cheers
Mac
