Humpy days

Humpy days

Off topic but I would love this in my shed.

350 chev

My daughter's boyfriend has been offered a 350 Chev long motor for his HQ ute. It was pulled out of a Torana over a year ago and has been sitting in a shed ever since. Condition unknown so I told him to assume it needs a rebuild. Any ideas on what it might be worth.
Also, will the 350 bolt straight into a HQ using 253 engine mounts?

Chev-Cruze

I've seen it all now. I was in traffic this morning and saw a Holden (cough, cough) Cruze with large Chev bowtie emblems on the boot and grille, I tried to take a pic but wasn't quick enough.

took an hour

took an hour

only took an hour to drill and tap...
Spent an hour before hand though cleaning and setting up the drill press..
Still, will be forever an easy mod now that I have done it once
Should be able to bolt them on Thursday, will spend tomorrow cleaning them, maybe a little refining of the ports, and a lappy...
oh, and mod the oil returns
;)

Lost something ?

That said, they have very good reason to be laughing this hard. And as hard as they are laughing the guy driving this late 1960’s Dodge Dart is crying. A combination of extreme torque and a bad welding/installation job, meant that when the muscle car tried to impress by flooring his ride, he ended up failing in the most epic way imaginable: with the rear axle of the car breaking loose.

EH window winders.

I had a look at a local old ladie's EH today to fix the driver's window, she couldn't wind it down.
When the winder is in the down position the runner on the end of the arm is about 1/2" inch away from the end of the channel it runs in at the bottom of the glass. It looks to me like the arm on the winder is too long. When the winder is wound up the runner moves upwards through it's arc away from the the channel it supposed to run in.
Am I right in thinking her car has a rear door winder mechanism in the driver's door? If I am I think I might know how this situation came to be. I won't say any more until I know for sure.
Anyone got any ideas/solutions?

Surfing Narrowneck Gold Coast

Surfing Narrowneck Gold Coast

Parked the HG at Narrowneck and a passing photographer took a liking to it and snapped this shot so thought I would share. The car is a 1971 HG wagon in Brookland blue with sandalwood trim that has been brought back to life over the past year (with lots of help from this forum!) It is my daughters car as we surprised her with it for her 18th Birthday but I take every opportunity I can to grab the keys and take it for the day.

I want to thank everyone on oldholden.com for the kind advice and expert opinion I have received over the past 12-18 months. I am not sure who owns rare spares, but surely they will be able to retire off the back of this car :)

Gearbox ID

Kernewek Lowender

Hi, took my UC to the Kernewek Lowender Cornish Festival on the weekend. Had a great cruise through Wallaroo, Moonta and Kadina with a show and shine on the oval. Think there was about 600 cars in it, all sorts pre-1985 from SA and interstate. Good weather and a great day out with lots of really interesting cars, bikes and trucks to look at. The UC went great, love driving it, and got a photo (attached) of it with the famous Glen Dix, flag waver for the Grand Prix and many other great races.
Cheers, Col

K, finally got it to the point of needing to fix the engine to finish it...
Close now, pretty much all done except the stereo install, so I'm onto the engine to resolve the cooling issues...
But this is where it's at now, 5 years and $50K later
