HR bits

G'day

I have a HR premier with which i am removing the standard gearbox, the only problem is that im not sure what the gearbox is because i have no shifter, it might be a powergluide auto, or its a 3 spd manual. I was wondering if there was anyway i could tell what it was without having to take it out?

hr idle problem

Guys can someone help me here??
I have an HR and it is idling fine but when I start to rev it it gets a flat spot and then as I keep going it seems to come out of it

It just goes sort of flat and chugs as soon as I put the foot down to take off.

it was Ok until I put some old fuel in it

Could it be a dirty jet, fuel filter or pump problem???

or is it electrical????

I have a spare car so I can swap bits easily
Any assistance appreciated and I will tell you how I go

Bottle Jack vs Scissor Jack

hey all, I guess I better get myself a jack for the ute, having driven around without one for 9 months. American Autos sell either genuine holden Scissor jacks, trolley jacks and a 1850kg bottle jack. I guess the bottle jack looks good, as it is rated to hold more than a standard scissor jack, as easier to carry around everyday. and it's a helluva lot more cheaper than other jacks at $33. what's the pro's and cons of these versus standard jacks?

Purpose of VSS

Hi guys,

Just wondering exactly what the VSS does, and what the downsides of not running one are? I've done the 304 efi conversion in my HZ ute, and over the last few days I've had a warning light come on to say there's no signal from my VSS. Strange thing is though, it seems to be running better.

Thanks, Steve.

What was involved it the way of Engine Mounts,Trans Mount(can you buy these mounts in a conversion kit) & what Type & model Sump & Pickup do I use in relation to where the Suspension Crossmember is to the Sump Bowl is. And finally where do the Cleveland exhausts come out in relation to the Van Chassis.

REAR SEAT FOR HT GTS MONARO

Hi, I am in need of a back seat for a ht monaro. What i want to know is if the ht premier seat is the same dimension and will it fit. Also, does it look similar in pattern. Currently i have hk monaro seats in the car, and thinking of selling them to buy some ripped ht seats and get them retrimmed in black to the right pattern.
Any help would be appreciated.
Cheers Alex

holden cartoons?

Anyone out there remember those great holden t-shirts back in the 80's that were charicatures of different holden models?
You could pretty much find a charicature for every model of Holden,sometimes they used to advertise them in the back of the Australasian Post magazine and you could sometimes find them at markets where they'd just grab a t-shirt in your size and iron the design straight onto your shirt while you waited.
If anyone out there can remember these does anyone know if they still exist anywhere?
Thanks

VH Commodore Rims For Sale.

Hey fellas, I've got a set of stock rims for a VH or other early Commodore for sale. Its a set of four, they're in great nick having been repainted recently and with little to no gutter-scraping on them. Anyway I've run out of space so I need rid of them and soon otherwise I'll end up giving them to the wreckers. Anyway they cost $35 bucks each from the wreckers and I'm not looking for much more than that for the whole set. Basicly I'll take just about any offer for them, or I'd love to swap them for any HK-HT-HG parts.

C'mon fellas, you've got a chance to grab a bargain here.

I can send pics via email.

Symmons Plains

At Symmons Plains in Tassy oer the week end there were many highlights historic racing with EH's HT's and many more. Any way as a fill in a pair or DoughNut King Commodore SS ute's came out doing burnouts and every thing else 720 doughnuts and that, then with lots of smoke 1 started doing a reverse foot on, then snaped first and procied to do a foward foot on wihich then went to a doughnut. how bad r reverse burnouts- want this twist axles and cause them to snap. I would guess these utes would only need to do 1 show them be replaced or rebuild!!
