Re: My v8 cortina build for my dad

Welcome Grant. I had the pleasure of meeting your dad a couple of times and I must say that he was really passionate about his V8's and the cars that he was working on. He had a wealth of knowledge.

All the best with your bakkie. I am sure your dad will be watching proudly from above as you go along.

Thank you for the add,

I am rebuilding a Holden 308 engine. parts are very scarce. I have been able to source a bit here and there. I need a distributor cap and a rotor as the ones I bought from Echelin do not fit properly.

Bevin
Are you using the original points distributor?

What parts are you looking for Rassie?

I have a rear windscreen beading in good condition. Will send you a pic if you interested.

Re: Opel Rekord B/C

Hi Johann

Looks very similar to the Elcamino balljoint.

Have you checked with Wayne Mckenzie?

Hi Len

How durable are the mag locks? I have seen them stop working after a while. I want to install them for my swing gates at home but don't want to if they won't last.

How long have you had them for?

Re: Doug Hirkam

This is really sad news.

Doug went out of his way to assist me when I was having brake issues with the El Camino

Condolences to his family. Rest In Peace sir.

Where did you source the seals from. Looks like a good idea.

Re: Chev 4100 engine manual gearbox options

It should fit as the same belhousing is used! Take care on the diff ratio as the 4.1 uses a 3.08 ratio and the Ranger a 3.45. The propshaft length may also be different! Johann. Make certain the starter is located on the same side! That will determine the fit!! 4.1 also came with a 2.92 diff ratio ...
