Make a WB ute into HZ ute

I was wondering if it is at all possible to convert a WB ute into HZ ute. I know the front guards are different along with the bonnet. But are the front frames that are bolted to the cab the same for both models ?

Thanks in advance for clarification.

W58 Supra box

Happy to say I am the proud owner of an almost complete W58 5 speed conversion for my HR. Rebuilt box, CRS bellhousing, clutch fork, two brand new clutches, cross member & tail shaft with the correct spigot. May need the tailshaft adjusted for the HR but a long way to getting everything together. I love Gumtree!

VN Auto into HR Premier Sedan

Planning on putting a VN (Pre electronic) TH700 Auto into my HR Sedan. Was wondering about any problems with the Tunnel & Fire wall. I have done a bit of research and looked at the V6 Conversion web site. They say only slight modification. But that is with a V6 motor. Mounting may be slightly different. I want to stay with my 202. Anyone got any info?

Vn304 into Hq

Hey jim here . I'm putting already built 304 vn into my Hq one tonner. I currently run a 253 trimatic pattern with a 350 Holley and a celica 5 speed . The vn 304 turbo pattern has been totally rebuilt with balancing porting flat tops Roller rockers head work and ground. I'm putting a carbie on top.. I'd like to put a 650 hp .. it's a daily drive and I would like it not to stop at every fuel station .. is their much difference between a double pumper and a vac sec 650 in fuel economy.. do I need thermo fans ?? How efficient is getting new pace makers coated for heat transfer..

wb holden headlights

Apart from hanging a hz clip on the ute, is there anyway to improve the output of the headlights. Must be the worst headlight of all time. Are the wb stato lights any better with the built in spotlight?

Flat spots and stalling around corners. New weber 38 DGMS

Hi all

Have just installed a new weber 38 DGMS in the premmie. Goes a lot better than the tired old Rochester that was in there previously. Except around corners where it seems to be starved of fuel and occasionally cuts out. Problem partially relieved by closing the choke. Is it the idle mixture? Idle speed sounds about right. Thanks in advance!

Trimatic box, Powerglide shift

Hi,

Mate has a HR which has been converted to a trimatic gearbox but has the 2 speed column shift auto still attached.

The gearbox is thus not connected.

What is required to link the two together?

Thanks in advance for your help
