    Putting an L67 into my 5spd manual storm ute

    You will need to get it matched for it to start, One would assume its come from a Sedan including the ECU, As there will be some changes required. Also the Key will need to be programmed in again.

    New engine needed llt

    Im in Melbourne, and there is a fair few wreckers in Melb that will remove and ship it to you. Keeping in mind, you are better to replace it with the same engine, LLT, LFX etc, etc. I recently helped my nephew replace his V6 in his thunder ute, as it seized with no warning or engine lights at...

    Correct compressor type in VB query?

    Yes they are a heavy compressor, But very smooth, as the after market York Compressors were a real clunker, and vibrated through the whole car, Good work for getting a Harrison unit, as they were only ones to work correctly and the brackets were always accurate. I had a 1977 LX 4.2 SL Torana...

    Not a STEEL hammer ! Copper/Brass hammer, or a Brass Dolly or the Correct tool to dislodge the ball joint shaft. If your going to replace them both on both sides, Go for SuperPro.

    V6 Vy not charging

    It should read a consistent 14.2 > 14.4 Volts [approx.] when idling, When you switch your headlights on, it will drop to 14.2V, but change to 14.4V to compensate for the voltage drop with the load.

    Doors won't lock

    Do you have a spare Key ? If so, does that work ok ? If so, I would say you may need to check he programming of the Key and/or get the Key Erased from the BMC, and re-programmed in, If that doesn't work, New Key Head.

    Your Key Needs to be programmed into the BMC, and then into the Wireless Remote Control to Lock/Unlock the car. Your Addy says Melbourne, What suburb are you in Melbourne ?

    The professional scan tools can check cylinder/plug misfires in the ECM's history, as it may not cause the MIL to activate.

    The Gap tool I have is a Coin Gap Tool from Supercheap, I think I paid $1, or there abouts at the time. https://www.supercheapauto.com.au/p/sca-sca-spark-plug-gap-gauge-coin/344862.html#q=gap+tool&lang=en_AU&start=1 Hint: Can also be used as a stubby opener, when your re-gapping the plugs ! ;)

    Very slight misfires

    I did read Plugs and Plug Gap is very critical for L77's, So when I did my Plugs and Leads, I checked the resistance of all the leads approx. 800 > 900 ohms, and the plug gaps, which I found were way out on the New Plugs. My L77 also have a bit of a hiccup now and then idling, but I have go use...

    Knock when braking

    That will be a item of fail, Best to get hold of some degreaser and a spray bottle, and go ALL over the motor, especially around the harmonic balancer.

    Very slight misfires

    Maybe best to get is scanned, At least it may give you an indication where to start to look, Being it will historicise the faults. As not all faults will activate the MIL. Where in "Victoria" are you ? As there maybe a JC Member close to you that maybe able to assist/help.
