What makes a woody? And how many FE Woodies were made approx?

G'day guys,

First of all let me preface this buy saying I know nothing about cars, so apologies for the ignorance.

A bloke I know who is a big holden fan and likes restoring them has found the shell of a FE holden in the bush. He says that it could be a "Woodie" and that there was only about 10 produced.

First of all, does this sound right?

Second, does a woody just mean it had wood panelling on the sides?

Thanks for your help.

Cheers
Mike

hj 202 motor is in and running (sort of)

okay so ive gotten the motor in and running.. sort of, i think the timing is out, plugs are a bit of a mystery i thought the gap was 0.88. but then realised its 1.5 for electronic ign, so i regapped the plugs - it ran a bit better.

but there is a clicking sound, quite loud which i am not sure what it is. damn, hope this motor is not a dud. haha
it is not constant, it comes and goes, i hope its just something loose.

thread subscription notifications via email

Is there any way to subscribe to a thread and choose a notification type (no email notification | instant notification by email | daily updates by email | weekly updates by email) with the option to receive an email notification of new replies to that thread....?

If not, is there any possibility something like this can be implemented?

In the Car and almost done.

In the Car and almost done.

Haven't been on for a while, but thought I'd post update on the engine swap in my HK. It's now in and has its first fire up (see the link). Still some work to do in that the torque converter needs to be bolted up and a tail shaft made and fit the exhaust. But getting closer.

hj ute 202 swap update..

hj ute 202 swap update..

therthe old motor is now out, no dramas there! except my engine crane leg fell onto the nosecone :( very very disapointed with that, i didnt need another dent to fix. but moving forward.

got the replacement engine almost in but finding it extremely difficult to align the dowels, the engine is cocked to the side i tried using a ratchet strap to fix but still battling.

one thing i missed... i guess its a silly mistake but i didnt realise i needed to support the transmission, it dropped a few inches.. hope i didnt bend any selector rods? or whatever theyre called.

so ive not got the trans jacked up engine partially in.

i might remove the engine again and chain it up onto a different point so it is better balanced.

cheers for everyones help.

thanks, shanee ya go.

hz rear suspension

gday all,
i've just tightened up the rear of me hz kingsy 202 with new std height king springs, monroe gas shockies and rubber spring insulators.
i got me mechanic to re-measure all 4 heights and now much closer to spec (see photo).
the first thing i noticed was the bonnet lower.
i noticed how much flatter it was cornering (not that easy to see like the front is)...well so it should i suppose...,
..but i've never done up just the rear suspension before - usually all four together.
i didn't think it would make much diff - not like tightening up just the front would.
quite happy.

Dear Friends,

I was refurbishing the wiper motor of my 1974 HQ. I found this bit at the armature which I am not sure whether to keep or throw away. Could you please advise?

Thank you

Paint Codes

Hi, I'm restoring a 1980 WB One Tonner commercial variant with the seldom seen round headlights to original specs including all trim and paint etc.
It is Palais White with Tan interior

I've bought the paint for chassis and cab but there is 3 other areas that are painted and I don't know the colour name or codes? They are:

1. The original steel wheels and yet to obtain small central Commodore interceptor type wheel caps.
2. A painted section of the dash between windscreen and dash pad which is a brown colour
3. The grill and headlight surrounds which from original ads and photo's appear to be a dark silver but mine are badly hand painted in some crappy light silver by previous owner.

Kukerin 2014

I went to the Kukerin burnouts on the weekend with some crew. Its a lil town 300kms from Perth and there is a creekbed racing event and a skid comp. Most of the cars there would not look out of place in any mad max movie.
Anyway, at the last minute my neighbour decided that I should take his v8 vg ute along with us a melt some tyres off it while he has a beer;
