    My Starfire-4 Manual VC Royal Commodore has now been fully converted
    to a 6 cyl 202 Auto :)

    The Diff, front strut towers, K-Frame, engine, gearbox, tailshaft, extractors and exhaust have all been replaced and the new engine only has done 85,000KM :)
    We even got rid of the old engine fan and hooked up a thermo fan.
    *NEW PICS ADDED!*
    Now for some pics, only got some of taking the engine out at the moment... more later :)

    yep, had a VK that sat for about 2 years, poored a little fuel into the carby float chamber, charged battery and she started straight away. the old 6 cyls are fairly tough.

    nice work on the transplant:thumbsup:
