So off the top of my head...

*Console hump (can cut it into repo console)
*Radiator?
*Tailshaft(debatable)
*clutch linkages
*shifter stick
*gear knob
*accelerator linkages?
*carby correct part number

Anything else Aus specific?


...You'll search till hell freezes over ever attempting to gather up the myriad items that make up the "clutch linkages". An absolutely complex array of special bracketry and bits, from RH firewall to left rear of engine via a shouldered cross shaft, with the special clutch pedal/pivot levers transmitting it all down to the clutch fork...You're facing an horrendous exercise, but best of luck and good hunting.

...also, the accelerator linkages are standard items to any V8 HQ. The linkage from the firewall pivot to the carby might be the only foreign item.

Second photo starter fitted,had on going issues with starter motor when hot,starter would not work no solenoid clip nothing.

Installed a temp heat shield cloth around the solenoid only and it appear's to have rectified it starts now when hot.

Next job is to remove starter and instal shield neatly around solenoid.


...had the exact same problem when used daily, but taken on a long trip in hot weather...used to have to reach under the car with a wet rag to cool the starter down, but jeeez, that was nearly 40 years ago !!

...always thought the Rockcrusher was 31 spline and a "standard" Muncie was 28.


No. Rockcrusher name is from the noise the straighter cut gears make on the M22.

Cool thanks, so a Melbourne motor, I roughly know what mine should be.
As for the previous post, I luckily have a complete reproduction clutch linkage set up from pedal to fork. I have a V8 accelerator linkage set up but I don't have the angle that the firewall bracket is bent to.

If anyone has one that can get the correct angle for me, that would be awesome

Don't have original Alternator still on your motor do you....or know correct part number?


I have the original alternator's(Lucas) on both car's A/C.

You will need a bosch alternator no A/C plus bosch regulator.

Plus the larger dia pulley and fan are 350 only. (see tables)
