HT Wagon Seat Belts

G'day,
I am about to fit Lap sash ( non retractable) belts to my HT wagon. I was hoping someone who has done this might ba able to offer up some tips or even photo's if possible. I have removed the back seat to find 2 captive nuts. Not sure if they were meant for belts or not but my main concern is the pillar. any advice would be greatly appreciated

Stroker

Hi guys i have just been given a two 308 with gearboxes that have been sitting for a long time. I know one come out of a HQ 1tonner the other not sure on also not sure if there are running or not either.

Thinking of pulling them down cleaning them up and maybe get a stoker kit to put in at least one of them.

Is there much demand for this sort of setup or are people going for a small block chevs or a VN to VT 304 style with a stroker kits now days.

Have nothing to put it in. Would mainly be a talking point in the man cave or something like that.

fixed vs colunm shift auto on my ute

My selector indicator stopped working, I took the cover off and found it was connected to a small cable to the gear stick, I went to a fishing tackle shop and bought a roll of 10lb steel tracer line. I then very carefully and patiently used it to replace the selector indicator cable and it worked fantastic. I am very clever and it only cost $5 and 2hours to fix.

Tub to tray

Hi all. I've got an old WB ute which I'm seriously considering cutting the tub off of and whacking a tray on the back. This is mainly due to all the rust being in the tub. It's been hit in the back corner too and had a bodge repair job. I'm not interested in turning it into a tonner as such. Just want to put the tray on the back. I know some guys on here would have done something similar, so I'm after some pointers. Thanks in advance. Tonners aren't cheap here in tassie so selling the ute and buying a tonner isn't really an option for me

New gearbox old engine

Hello sages of wisdom on old Holden. Does anyone know if there are Holden 4spd boxes that would bolt up to a 138 grey motor with minimal motification. I currently have a grey powered EJ with the stock 3 in the tree. that is due for a rebuild and want to go to a 4 on the floor and keep the grey motor.
Any info would be great.
Cheers

T5 behind 308

It's probably been posted before but I couldn't find a solid answer I want to put a t5 box behind a mild 308 in a tonner what box am I better off running? It's an Aussie pattern if that makes any difference
Ford 6cly t5 with bell housing adapter?
Commodore v8 with ford rear housing?
Commodore v6 with adapters?

And what else do I need as far as tailshaft clutch and speedo
Do I run cable clutch or hydraulic?

Hi guys, Looking at doing up an EH ute, and I allready have a 253 I rebuilt in Year 12 in 1990. never been started! So Id like to use it.
My questions are 1, Is it legal in NSW and Is there a conversion Kit available to make it simple? Id also be puting a disc front end in, HR I guess.
And advice would be appreciated
Thanks

seatbelt positions on an EH Sedan

Hey Cats

I am looking to get a blue slip in NSW for a QLD car.
Because of the additions I need to have all seats with seatbelts. Does anyone have recommendations or a picture on where they mounted their inertia seat belts?

My front ones are mounted on the pillar - but these will need to be changed apparently because they are bolted thru the pillar

Sheesh

Any ideas?

Many thanks Adam

Swapping my tonner chassis for a sedan?

I understand the sedan chassis for the HQ etc are a bit longer than the tonner versions. Also a few mounts need to be made/transplanted.. is that correct? I'm wondering if changing the complete chassis to something with IRS and non-leaf rear might improve my handling in a street car rather than converting to a 4 link rear.

Any thoughts? I need to make the decision soon though as I'm taking the cab off today lol.

is it worth it to hot up a 253?

I know you bore it out, bigger valves, lumpy cam all that sort of thing, but can you, like a 308 to 355, stroke it a bit? is it worth it to hot up a 253? AND if I did, will the motor be small enough to run a small 8 bolt salisbury diff a trimatic and a standard brake booster ... Im just throwing it out there I wouldnt mind an 8 in my commy but I if I put an 308 worked I think ill have to change too many things to accomodate the extra horses. if someone could enlighten me on the old 253 capabilities and incapabilities and what I need to change from 6cyl running gear.
