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.
I found this nice little video on book face. It contains info on hotting a holden 6 https://video-lax1-1...
Has anybody ever rechromed/silvered a light reflector? Where did you go?
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
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.
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?
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 :)
can anyone help my mate with gearbox i.d ?
he was sold what was supposed to be a 4 speed the number on the selector plate is 57433771 & number on the side of the plate is 50519 (this is how my mate relayed it to me)
is the easy way to tell, a 4 speed has ribs on the outside of the box & the 3 speed doesn`t ?
any help appreciated
Hey does anyone know if the side roof chrome of an EH wagon will fit a Panel Van?
Hi i am in the process of getting my HJ 1 tonne restored and i have been quoted $1500 to replace the outer sills I thought it was a bit step since I supplied the new sills but im not a panel beater so i might be wrong so if any beaters out there shed some light on weather i am getting ripped or if that is the right price please let me know
Cheers Paul (78 GTS)
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.
