I've been having a fair few problems lately!
Today as I was driving the car just shorted out and stopped. No lights nothing. The battery was really hot and spitting small bits of the terminal off. We put a new battery in thinking that it had died but it sparked even more and the wires on the earth melted. The earth from the battery onto the alternator was sparking on the alternator end too. We are thinking it is in the alternator. The alternator was quite hot.
Any suggestions? Thanks
Gday. I've got A Holden wb with a 350 chev. I've been getting a knocking noise when a reach about 2000 revs. It's more sounds like a slightly heavy flutter. It's only when I'm driving. Never does it in neutral. No matter how much I rev it. A few of my mate's reckon it could be a big end but I'm not too sure. We can't seem to diagnose the problem. From in side the Car it sounds like it's on the drivers side at the back of the motor. The more the revs go up the faster it flutters.
Any ideas? Thanks guys

Does anybody have any experience registering a vehicle that has lost its ID tags? Are previous rego papers along with a letter of sale sufficient? It still has the chassis no. Stamped on it.
Any help or knowledge from previous experiences would be appreciated!
New user first time on any forum. I have just purchased a 1973 HQ complete panel van. It's been in someones shed for the last 10 years and is a Queensland car and looks like that could be the case. I have a 14 year old son and I decided to re live my youth and buy it and restore it with him over the next few years. It has all GTS parts on it including the guards,dash,bucket seats and third seat in the middle, On the compliance plate it states its a 3 seater and has flutes behind your head in the body work on both sides on the outside of course. It has a colour code that the paint shop could not find but I have found out via google that it was a 1 off silver metalic type colour.
Does anyone know much about these models and can you shed some light on what i have bought?
I am after a set of halfway decent doors for my HK ute. It is a daily driver so I would like to keep it on the road while I get the current ones blasted and some new metal in them. Loan or sale would be appreciated. I am located in South Sydney. 0481 317 922 Cheers.
Hi all I have a clunk noise coming from the front right hand side of my wb panelvan, it only seems to happen when I'm turning left and hit a bump, I've been under the car and can't find anything that seems to be loose or hitting on the chassis! The power steering box is also leaking and I was wondering if this could at all be related. Any help would be great!!
Can anyone tell me if a 68 Camaro has the same wheel stud pattern as a HQ. I'm just looking at a set of alloy wheels that were on a Camaro but aren't sure if there the same. Thanks
I am thinking about re painting my 1974 HQ kingswood ute in the near future and cannot firmly decide on a cool colour for it. I want something that will stand out yet not then be impossible to sell in the future (I dont think hot pink is a very wanted colour).
Just thought I would pose the question to see what peoples ideas on some cool colours could be.

Well hello friends !!!
Its been ages since I last posted here.
And its now I have gone off the deep end and bought yet another UTE !!!!!
I got a 71 HQ Kingswood One Ton Flat bed Ute, she has the original motor and tranny.
( poor 202 motor is powerless,, ideas ?? )
BTW I got his one from the uncle of the guy that owned my 73 UTE here in the states.
So you know I will be all over these boards again as we restore this one to some of her old glory !!
Pictures will be in a week or two.
So here are my questions about the 71 One Ton.
The 202 motor is red in color, is this the RED 202 ???
and what is the mechanical difference 'tween the LC and HC motor ?
