FJ rims

Does anyone need four FJ Holden rims?
They are in Newcastle, NSW.
If anyone is interested text me on 0419 875 159 and I'll give you the bloke's phone number.
I don't know how much, but it won't be a telephone number.
They were on an early Landrover he got to restore and have Landrover type tyres on them. Early Landrovers had the same stud pattern as the FJ.

Torque

Replacing thermostat housing and water pump to engine gaskets. Was recommended to use Permatex Form-a-gasket on metals and a gasket in between. Is Permatex Form-a-gasket suitable and I don't have a torque wrench, should I borrow one or can I do it by hand?

Cheers guys

Keeping them stock

with the enormous demand for classic Holden's do you think it makes sense to keep them as stock as possible? I understand if the brakes are up graded and improvements on fuel efficiency and safety but so many have been very modified. The latest trend is converting UCs in to LX LH Torana's, and a9x re-body cars. What do you think?

Piston Damage, HELP!!

Anyone know why this would happen?
I got this today from the guy that is selling me a 308 block
Which now makes me worry, he said the blocks in great condition, but I got him to bring this piston in today to check what pistons they were.... These are dished yes?
(More suited for forced induction?) Lower compression?
Can someone tell me why exactly this damage happens?
Hope he's not fibbing about the condition of the block as I've already paid him!

Slipping hoses

Anyone had problems with hoses slipping from chrome thermostat housing pipes? Radiator feed pipe is fine however the two smaller manifold feed pipes seem to be really smooth and when tightening the hose clamps they work their way off
Was thinking wet and dry ring of paper against the chrome would work? Any other fixes?

Original Holden Manual

Can anyone give me an idea of what the original copy of the first OWNERS MANUAL for Holden Cars is worth?
The softcopy cover manual has 44 pages and the only model/identification I can find is on the inside of the front cover and is 59M - 3/55. The only colour inside is blue on some illustrations and is in good condition.

Drum Brake Booster

Morning Guys,

Can anyone comment on whether adding a brake booster to a HR with all drums will improve braking at all?

Wanting to keep the car looking original as possible in the engine bay and not going disks, so I would prefer to source an original GM booster if it will help braking.

Cheers

Locky

got the small ratchet on the others, not so bad..the rear door side.. 1 click of the ratchet each time...20 mins to do up a bolt! seriously thinking of cutting a slot in the end and doing it from underneath...

just had to have a rant...
