Ive been rebuilding a wb van for a couple of years, I am ready to start up for the first time.
Was wondering if you fellas could tell me anything I have to double check, be wary of etc? Or any tips getting a straight lpg motor to start up
I am pretty sure I have everything covered, getting oil pressure, pretty sure I have the timing sorted out as well
Its only a top end rebuild, so no cam running in etc, just rings,valves etc
The car is on straight lpg, tank has been checked and stamped a few years back.
Am I missing anything? I am self taught so good to double check, just a fire extinguisher on hand maybe?
CHEERS in advance
I've given the steering box a bit of a clean up, however, it's colour has faded and looks pretty ratty. I'd like to give it a fresh coat of paint but would like to use the actual colour not just any old red.
Does anyone know it's true colour or have a pic so I can see what it should look like.
I have just had the tailgate done up on my HZ Prem. Can anyone tell me if there is a rubber gasket that goes under the window winder to protect the paint work? When I took it off it didn't have one. I have searched ebay, rare spares etc but to no avail.

Anyone in or around Adelaide swapped a trimatic over before? I have a vk that needs the trimatic swapped with a better one I have. I have a car pit and will have a good trans hoist/lift ready to go, along with a new gasket, oil, filter and trans mount. The good trans is in my parts car parked over the pit. Just have to remove the good trans, push car out of pit, push other car into pit and swap the trans over. Would need to bring own tools as I only have a few. Willing to pay good cash for the right person. I am located in the barossa.

Hoping somebody could answer:
Did FJ Holden come out with a two tone seat as in white and blue?
Looking at buying one, but it have never seen a two tone seat in that model before.
Thanks in advance for any help
Hi all. I have a vk with a trimatic. It needs a few things before the engine is going. I have another trimatic I want to put in it. My question is, can I swap the gearboxes over with the engine not running? Like will I need to test drive and adjust anything that I need the car running to do so?
I'm about ready to attack the sump on my Hd Wagon again after a break, absence make the heart grow fonder. I got some advice ealier but forgot to ask if any sealant should be used on the cork sump gasket or on the two sump end gaskets. I've two different holden manuals but they don't give much/any advice on this.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Another funny thing happened to me today.
Was thinking that the locks on the doors of the old HK were stuffed and needed replacement or at least the barrels changed.
After stuffing around for a while, the light went on and I realised that the panel beater chaps had put the locks back in upside down... Turning the key around and bingo... All was working.
I then changed the locks to be the right way up and... Well... No locksmith required.... You little beauty!!!! All fixed...
check through the pics for the EH.
