As nitrox says, One for you mate!
This HK looks like one sweet, original ride!
And, as you would say, - straight to the watchlist!
I fitted the headlining in the ht ute. Some parts here in western SYD it reach 45.5 decrees but it wasn't that bad were I was in Blacktown where it was low 40's & we were in an insulated shed so it ok. Sorry about the sun in a couple of the pics & in the last pic I had a welcome spectator a white German Sheperd she kept bringing me her to play fetch & being a dog lover she kept sucking me in but I didn't mind I enjoyed my time her.
Pictures of the coating. The spray is Eastwood Diamond Clear. Suppose to not yellow and can withstand 300F temperatures. Easy to do, polish the alloy, wipe over with thinners and spray on. It goes frosty while drying then clear as you see. Any distributor of POR15 will have it or can get it from PPC Warriewood, NSW.
I just had a Stromberg WW2 carby rebuilt at a local workshop. I took it off the car and gave it to them to rebuild. I got it home, installed and tried to fire the car up. After a few cranks it backfires out the carby then catches fire due to fuel leaking out everywhere. I get the car towed to the workshop and leave it with them to sort out and tune it. I got the car back Friday arvo. It was running sweet enough, however they hadn't test driven it because the didn't know how much fuel was in it (dud gauge). I got 1km away from the workshop and the car is running flat, no guts at all. I went back a gear (3rd) and stood on it only for the pedal hit the floor and car at idle.
.........you could get that much power out of the ol' Two Fluffy Three Boat anchor? Amazing.
With Shane (Doc Stitch) posting his Ron Hodgson log book, I thought I'd show mine and how coincidental things were around my buying the Monaro.
I bought the Monaro at a little place called Ebensenor (spelling), which is out the back of Richmond, maybe 50/60 odd kilometres away. I got it home, went over it and found the log books, and when I opened them I couldn't believe the original owners, who had the car until around 2006, lived and still lives, about 2 minutes from where I live, basically over the hill. I haven't had the car back to show them, but I will one day. The selling yard, AC McGrath is still there and I have bought a few cars from them through the years. I have blacked out some detail in the books as you can see. Coincidence or what?

Hello to all. My name is Dru. I'm having trouble tuning a 350 holley list 7448 on my HZ 202. I bought carb and Cain manifold off a bloke who had it on a 179 in an EH. Carb had 55 jets, 85 power valve and 31 squirter nozzles. Carb appears in good condition and none of the air bleeds or fuel circuits appear to have been modified. My engine is a 202, 60 thou over larger valves standard ports and standard cam (I think). Compression is170 to 175 across the board. Manifold vacuum at idle and under no load is 17 in,hg across rev range. Float level is correct accelerator pump set correctly (30cc pump white pump cam set in hole 1). Mixture screws set at 1&1/3 out. I still have points ign new coil points plugs condenser cap rotor button and leads. Point gap 18 thou, plugs 40 thou.

Hi, hoping someone might be able to help with this question. Will a HQ 202 Exhaust manifold meet correctly with a HR engine pipe at the flange.
I don't want to have to modify the engine pipe if possible. I'm sure the diameter of the pipe is the same, it's the angle that I'm not sure about.
Thanks in advance, Mal
Long story short..
I built a 355 using a 304 block and heads, can I run it in my VK
As a carb motor or will Qld Transport knock it back?
I would much rather it as a carby motor as both my Y series senator and my VU ute are EFI and want to tinker with a carby motor, the VK was a 202 car with a varajet,
I know I could just wack it in there and play dumb but I'd rather cruise knowing I don't have
To worry about a defect...
Any help greatly appreciated
Hey Guys and Girls, I have attached a Back to the Future trailer.
This is spoiler free, so no hinting to others that haven't seen it !
Has anyone ever had any dealings with Minto Wreckers, also known as the Commodore King, Saggart Field Rd, Minto? I know of a certain someone who paid for parts and interstate delivery a month ago, and he refuses to send the parts and refuses to answer the phone when you try to press him about it. he has long history with Dept. of Fair trading, and doesn't seem to give a $hItt about anything.
I would recommend going elsewhere no matter how hard a part is to find.
It is obvious, he is a total CROOK.
Post your experiences and discuss.
