    Called the wreckers today, reckons he doesn't know much about the 253 in the tonner they have there since the gearbox is sitting on the tray, but I'll go after work tomorrow and have a look and if it looks alright I'll see what he wants for it, hopefully not much since they're a dime a dozen, just hard to find good gear since ithe all seems to be in bloody Vic and I'm in qld haha

    You can start those engines without the gearbox attached....The starter motor bolts to the engine block....So it's a case of powering up the starter motor, power to the coil, fuel upto the carby and see what she sounds like

    Ended up driving an hour & a half to Ipswich for a 304 out of a VQ Caprice, now to get all the other gear like box, inlet mani, carby, radiator, yoke, modded tailshaft etc etc

    Just bought these 2 beauties from SCA, all ready for work on the 304 to begin. The HJ has been at my mechanic's place for a few months, but I've finally got around to seeing if they can get it running again to get it back to my place so I can start on the body work at least.
