Bedford Van 1980 LWB best engine conversions

Hi all, I have a 1980 LWB Bedford Van with a holden red 202. In preparing to give the old girl a new lease on life and give it a full make over. My long term goal is to travel around Australia in it. Im not sure what to do with the engine and gearbox situation, im after something that will be reliable and not an extreme fuel guzzler but it needs to have a bit more power then the tired old 202 that currently powers it. Any info and ideas from anyone who have done up bedfords and has had experince with engine upgrades (fresh 202, V6 conversion, V8 power) would be a great help.

CAD Plating???

Hi Team

I believe CAD plating is now a thing of the past, and I had all my stuff zinc plated.

It's come back pretty bright - almost like chrome on some bits!!!

Looks great, but doesn't look right.

Can anyone help me with someone who may still CAD plate??

Cheers

Jeremy

VSB14

Just spoke to my engineer about VSB14 and he advised that I should be building my car to follow these guidelines as they could come in any day.
That means I can't legally put a supercharged v6 in but I can legally put a 6.0L LS2!
Can't figure that one out!

VSB14 changes the replacement engine size multiplication factors from 4 to 3 for supercharged/ turbo and from 4.82 to 5 for NA for vehicles heavier than 1100kg. The engine size is calculated by multiplying the original tare weight of the sedan version of the car fitted with the largest engine option available from the factory.

Lucky I rang him as I had a wrecked CV6 Monaro lined up as a donor car for the wagon that I was planning to pick up this weekend.

Whenit all goes crunch

Helllloooo allllllllllll. Been a while since I have posted. Hope you all well. Just though I would post a pic of the motor of my Mrs's car that did a timing belt the other day. You know , the usual just out of warranty etc.
Glad the old motors have a bit more room for error when some thing goes wrong.
Just so you know. It is a Sh_tbox badged Holden made in korea.
Why do they do it??? Unfortunatly they will be no better out of the factory made here. :-(

Jesus Clip/door handle/ window winder removal tool

I bought this about 5 years ago, from Supercheap. It fits everything from the earliest Holdens right up to my VX wagon. A bloody good investment at $6.99 Me thinks. Anyway I just thought I'd whack up a pic to help anyone that may need it.

asbestos dust from car brakes.

Not sure if this matters to anyone on this site but if does it might interest you

A RETIRED mechanic has become the first person to win compensation for deadly lung cancer caused by asbestos dust from car brakes.

John Booth, 73, from Pottsville on the Far North Coast, was diagnosed with mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos fibres from James Hardie brake pads and linings during his 30 year career.

In a unanimous decision, the NSW Court of Appeal yesterday rejected an appeal by two James Hardie subsidiaries, confirming for the first time that exposure to white asbestos, or chrysotile, can cause the incurable cancer, and ordering them to pay him $326,640.
