HQ South African Import 130 CI motor

Hello All,

I have been asked a question about what model of Stromberg carburettor was fitted to the HQ Holden 130 cubic inch motors that were made for export to South Africa?

Does anyone know which 23-xxxx number would have appeared on the float chamber? Also what base would have been fitted?

Have a good weekend!

Kind Regards
Lionel

Rares Fuel sender unit. Issues?

Im not sure what is going on with my sender unit. The car gauge works fine, thats an easy test.I replaced the original sender unit as the cork had disintegrated, with a new rares unit. It would work from full but after about halfway on the car fuel guage, it would not read lower. Just stay around half . Pulled it in and out of the tank a couple of times with no change.

Not something you see every day

Driving past one of the local car yards recently and saw this sitting in a prominent position. To my uneducated eye, it looks pretty original except for wheels. but with only 6200 miles on the clock and split seams on the passenger seat, something did not look quite right. If anyone is interested it is in Gosford NSW.

Unleaded fuel availability slowly declining?

Question:- A new BP servo has opened up at the Northern end of Nambucca where the new highway bypass will go. I noticed that they dont sell 91 unleaded fuel? The Caltex in Macksville doesn't either?
Why? I thought unleaded was the most popular and therefore would contribute to more sales and profit.
I have heard it said that the government isn't allowing it in new servos in an effort to phase it out to push people into E10?
Any ideas?
