253 with Holley 650 - What jet size?

Hi All,

I have a 253 in a HZ Pano with a Holley 650 on it, I know the 650 is overkill for a 253 but it's gonna stay, so my question is, what's the best jet size for it?

Cheers
Dean

After market cheap Alloy radiators

Those after market fancy pants fully welded Alloy radiators are not worth wasting your money on unless you buy an Aussie cooler type and spend the extra dollars. The cheap version leaks at the top part of the core and not repairable because you have to cut the thing up to re-weld it and then re-weld the whole thing back together. I prefer original copper type.

Big block vs small block

Interested in opinions on this. I have an hq gts that originally had a 350 factory ( long gone).
I have bought a big block 454 with a set of extra ported heads and cam. Motor is complete and turns. I was going to fit it. Car is almost ready for paint and I need to decide whether to a. Fit big block and thus needing reverse scoop which looks bad in my opinion, b. Try to get hold of qu block and build stroker small block, or b. Get a dart small block and build engine.

Which coil?

Been trying to get a definitive answer on this but getting lots of conflicting views:

I have got my hands on a Bosch HEI distributor for a 253/308, ignition module part number 9222067021. I'm using the small points cap with the Falcon rotor (GB786).

What's the best bosch transformer coil to use? HEC716 or MEC718?

Spigot bearing installation

Hi guys. Any good threads around on spigot bearing installation? I've just bought a new spigot bearing from Dellow to put into the vt motor crank to suit my supra box. I noticed the old spigot on the wb turbo block crank is different. The old spigot had a wide face and lip controlling the seating depth. I'm worried now the new one will be the wrong depth if i seat it flush.
I'm wondering if i may need to buy a different bush and how to install it correctly

Swap HQ front twin light nose to single

Just wondering if anyone has info on swapping out my twin light premier front nose to a single light front nose. Obviously I am going from twin lights to single headlights however my query being is this an easy conversion I could do myself regarding the wiring or is there a bit to it where I would need to get a auto electrician in to hook it up ?

Cheers
Jim

HQ - LS1, 308 or 350 Chev

Hey Guys,

I've got a HQ Wagon shell that's been sitting up at our farm for numerous years rotting away and I'm finally of age where I can fund and restore the car. It originally had the 202 Straight 6 in it but was taken out and given to my uncles mate. I want to restore it to it's former glory but with massive power upgrades. What are your guys opinions, and how hard/much work is it to fit an LS1 with a T56 or TR-6060 Manual box into it? Is much modification needed or is it a pretty much straight swap.

I've been tossing up with a 308, 350 Chev or a LS1 and am looking towards the LS1 because it's just a bigger, easier engine to get parts for and can make a lot more power a lot easier. As for the gearbox, would you recommend a T56 or a TR-6060 (not interested in auto boxes)?
