CRS Hydraulic Clutch

Hi Guys,

Im looking to do a hydraulic clutch conversion when i put the supra box in my HQ.
Ive got a CRS belhousing, and was looking at geting the CRS hydraulic clutch kit as well.
My concern is ive seen a few posts on various forums that say they arent a good fit etc.
Has anyone fitted one recently? Have they improved the design in any way?

Thanks in advance.

Heavy throttle on 202 with trip SUs

Hi all

I have a mild red 202 with triple 1 3/4 SUs. My acceletor pedal is extremely heavy getting off idle. Feels light enough once Im moving. I believe it relates to manifold vacuum but how do I resolve?

My setup is not uncommon. Im hoping someone has had this problem and worked out a nice solution. Im keen for ideas.
Thanks
L

Hg Holden heater/demister

Just took a hg kingswood over the pits and part of the list given back is having a demister that works and blows warm air. The demister used to be quite strong however never blew warm air and has since stopped working. It has a heater box in place however all of the hoses running to the engine are blanked off. Will simply connecting these provide warm air for the demister? How do I go about troubleshooting a demister that does not work?

Electric fuel pump into hj

Hi, does anyone know the best way to modify a fuel tank for a hj sedan to run an electric fuel pump or the best way to set them up?
Ive read alot of forums and dr terry on here gave a solution with putting in a tank out of a vp/vr commy and get spout welded in, but that was 6yrs ago.
Theres also a place over east that can modify an original tank for 600.
Cheers in advance

HD Ute floor

Hi all, I'm not able to become a member yet but I'd like some opinions {yes, i know all about opinions !!} I have a HD holden barn find ute, it was left for years without screens and windows, at some stage, water got into it and completely rested out the floors, front and back to the fuel tank, and up to the seam in the firewall, both the top part of the firewall and behind the seat wall section are rust free. I was lucky enough to stumble onto a guy that had a complete HR Premier wagon floor in great condition, including the bottom of the pillars and sills intact.

Stolen pics

Al found my pics on instagram, I'm not there so they were posted by someone else but I don't care because if I didn't want anyone to share my pics I wouldn't post them on the net in the place.
I posted this pic on a Steel Bumper facebook page & before I knew it had been 20 times, even 1 Mexican, 1 Argentinin & 2 Yank's & I think that's cool.

Quick 64

Well I finally got it going. Had a few dramas with the brand new quick fuel carb. The oโ€™ring on the needle and seat was wrong and there was a spec of zinc plating holding the needle open. All fixed now. Happy days ahead.

HQ-HZ Alloy Girlock Caliper Dimensions

Hi All,
Just wondering if anyone can help me with a particular dimension on the front calipers on HQ-HZ when they are the alloy Girlock type. I need to know the measurement from the mounting holes to the top of the caliper body at the highest point to understand how high off the disc the will sit. I currently have cast iron PBR calipers which have clearance issues in my application and I want to know whether the alloy Girlock calipers will be a โ€˜silver bulletโ€™ for my problem before I run out and buy a pair!
Thanks in advance,
Mark

Powerglide transmission

Is the stator tube on a powerglide box different between the 6 cylinder and v8 boxes? Are they a different length and can I put a bellhousing to suit a v8 with a different convertor? I realise the gear ratios are different and a turbo spline input shaft is recommended for higher horsepower but will this work? Thanks for any info.
