if you have a spare steering box , gauge cluster and glove box id love to buy them can also wait if you need to get another from a wrecking yard please!!!!!IM IN MA. USA


Cheers,
I managed to get hold of a tailgate, but it was on the opposite side of the country. Fortunately I got my cousin to pick it up for me, but that was just after Christmas, and he keeps promising to post it, even after I paid him for shiping? :? :roll: :evil: :evil:

I've got an extra dash cluster from a '79, plus a glovebox lid & steering box, but they're all to suit right hand drive?

Sounds like he is probably wanting to convert to right hand steering with the steering box and gauges.

I'm building a 1976 with a G180 and I would love some pointers from guys with experience. I'm having delta grind me a street performer cam(272) with .440 lift. Do I need to do anything else to the head? I'm having a machine shop due the rebuild and also going to shave the head .020 as I heard that is a good safe number. Also, plan to purchase a pace setter header. Any input on if this is all good or bad would be helpful along with other things like clutch ideas and ignition stuff would be greatly appreciated.

Yep, still have the little beast, not much done due to being too flat out with work and sorting out a couple of other builds, so it's pretty much just been put on hold for the past couple of years. I've done a few very minor things, but nothing really exciting LOL

I'm hoping to get back into it again in the near future

Sorry for the late reply, I haven't been on here in ages

I never did anything other than strip down my G180z and find out that the head was rotten, and beyond spending any time or money on. I ended up going for a 4ZD1 (2.3 litre) instead and sent it off to a wizard engine builder. I was happy to get my hands dirty, but he did the full tear down, chemical dip, crack test, machine & deck the block, port, polish and flow match the head. He also did the crank and custom cam grind, sourced 90% of the internal goodies and then full assembly. Pretty much a blueprint build.

I still haven't turned it over other than by hand every month or so. The same guy also ported the induction manifold and built a set of tuned pipes,,, so yes, I'm itching to have it run :ebiggrin :ebiggrin :ebiggrin
