Block ID.

Hi guys!
Cheers for the add to your group.

My brother has just picked up a VH commodore with a HG 308 block. Nov 11 70. (L110)

There are some other numbers on the side after the 308H30###.
There's a space then possibly L867
Would anybody be able to help us out with them last letter and numbers? Could be 4867.

Thanks heaps!

Mick.

EJ Holden Pinion Angle

I suspect my pinion angle might be a bit out,get a lot of vibration and gear jump out only going uphill. Thinking of trying some wedges at the back. Where can you buy wedges suitable for old Holdens, are they pretty universal?

Supply and demand.

Suxuki Australia was only allocated 1,100 of the new Jimny for the first year of production.
Eight hundred were pre-sold before any landed in Australia. Which left 300 cars for all the Suzuki dealers in Australia to sell for 12 months.
The have a recommended drive away price of $23,990. Most places wanted $28,990.
I just saw this used one in Sydney for $35,990: https://classicthrot...
I believe that is what my economics meant when he talked about supply and demand.

Been looking for HR parts for my rebuild. So expensive and most ex East. Suddenly found a complete body with spares. Been in a garage for 20 years. A treasure trove for me! Rust free body and subframe. Picked it up on the weekend.

Ferris Push Button Radio

Does anyone have a photo of what the knobs on this Ferris look like? I've cleaned it up but don't know which ones are the right ones for it. Has the number 159 3875 stamped on it, does anyone know which year it was made?

HT Power Steering Clearance

Hi All

Been a while...so long so my sign in doesn't seem to work.

I'm just reaching out to the you all to ask if anyone knows if HT V8's had a different sump between manual and power steering options? We have had power steering in our HT (out of a Brougham) for the last 15 years with all working well and all of a sudden we have been pulled up on the PS Ram touching the bottom of the sump. The only thing to have occurred to the car since it was put in is new engine mounts about 4 years ago which I would have thought if anything would have lifted the engine up?
