Should I sell it?

Our Rav has been at the panel beaters this week. Again.
In 8 years it's had:
# 3 new windscreens.
# one broken side window.
# A woman backed into the front of it.
# A bloke ran up the back and pushed us into the car in front of us, which then hit the car in front, which then hit the car in front....
# my daughter backed into the side of the house one night.
# my wife hit a low bollard at the shopping centre when parking it.
# my wife backed into our brick letterbox.

WB Project original or Custom?

Hi Guys
i am looking at starting WB project soon and am trying to work out whether to do it original or custom as Iโ€™d love to put a V8 in it. Ute is my Uncles old farm Ute so has sentimental value, he drove it for 10 plus yrs then when it stopped it went into the shed where itโ€™s been sitting for last 30+yrs. Itโ€™s manufacture date is April 1980, 202, 3 on the tree so considering it was from the original release date am I better to keep original?..
Cheers

Rebuilt 179 HP motor spewing water from the radiator & blowing white smoke :(

Hey fellas. I'd recently just rebuilt my old holden 179 motor, and I'm using a brand new commodore copper radiator. I start the motor up dead cold with the water level full and cap off. It'll seem ok for like 2-3 minutes and literally spews out water like a bloody fire hydrant had been hit from the side of the road with a car. It does this and loses about 4-5 litres literally within seconds. There seems to be what looks like white smoke out of the exhaust. There's no water in the oil, however.

Where on the carburetor of Holden HQ is the throttle stop screw?

Hello,

There is a mention to the throttle stop screw on the page 40 of "the Holden 6 series HQ-HJ". But there is no photo of it in the book. So I can't adjust idling of the HQ engine. Please help me.

Kind regards

HJ Door seals

Hi Crew. I am replacing the RHF door seal and can't for the life of me push the little xmas tree retainers into the inserts. Is there a special tool or technique? or do you not use the inserts? It is all Rare spare parts.

Thanks,
Sore thumbs

Help to ID this?

I bought a bulk lot of parts and this NOS package was included. Iโ€™m guessing itโ€™s a speedo cable but Iโ€™m unable to find out what itโ€™s for.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you!

GREY MOTOR - FREE

I retrieved a Grey Motor from the local rubbish dump for free. The engine number is B168328 and I believe it was from an FB or EK Ute. In the steel pile was a couple of front guards but they appeared to be totally stuffed. There was also a front bench seat which was bent and in a very sad state. It had metal trim around the base and seat adjuster area which I think is ute and van only?
