More progress. Rusty floor sections removed and some preliminary floor work. I'm using a VT 5 litre so emissions requirement of the era need to be met. Charcoal cannister, PCV and catalytic converters all sorted and ready to go. Also sorted some transition stubs for the extractors. These allow for a really neat and tight, if needed, transition of the pipe out of each cylinder.

Well that didn't go to plan. A quick cam change and some new bolt ons was the plan. Unfortunately the motor had been left open too long before I got it and there seems to be dirt and grit in there that I don't like the look of. Off for a quick rebuild. Hopefully just a hone, new rings and bearings and head service and it's done.

This weekends effort. Getting rid of rusty floors, preparing for a larger Commodore tunnel and fitting an XW-XY fuel tank.

I notice all your builds tend towards the fabricated front ends, is there a specific reason you go this way?

I am in a position to start a rebuild on my EH Prem and want to be convinced the front is worth the money for what will probably be a slow boring cruiser.

now being rebuilt with less cam, much less comp, and enough turbo to smash a holden block to bits..

I can comment on the front end. I chose one for the HK for power steering and sump clearance, plus modern brakes. Also gives far better exhaust clearance.

For the VT 304, dump the block and use a HJ block. Then no emissions required. Or replace it with a late VR block and deck it as part of the rebuild.
