Spare tyre winch for a one tonner

G'day,

I have a winch for my spare tyre that is in pretty good nick.
The problem is (without putting in a vice and attacking it with screwdrivers) I cant figure how to make it unwind.
Winding it up is no problem.
Can someone tell me how you make it release when it is on the car?

Cheers

Dragways for sale....HQ-WB

Image: 

I have previously posted these as Commodore stud pattern, but only just discovered that they are definatley HQ-WB, not Commodore as previously thought. I just got off my arse and checked with a HQ disc rotor.
So, I am pleased to advise you that I only want $250 for them. So if you want cool old school mags these are the [Naughty Pottyword]!
I am in Sydney and I'm not organizing postage, you'll have to pick them up.
$250.......$250.......$250.......$250........$250

Overlanders Attn. Redbeard.

Hi there,

Not that long ago, i posted a story asking about holden overlanders. Redbeard posted a pic of one he had made himself, and id like to know some more about it. Such as engine/gearbox used, Does it use the landcruiser transfer case? And what is the transfer case and the diff mounted to? What about the suspesion, is that raised holden stuff or the lancruiser grafted onto the holden?
I really want to build one so any hints/tips and info would be fantastic, especially on if...and how... you got through the engineering side of things?

Also What about the possibility of re-bodying? Say, get a patrol/landcruiser and putting a holden body on top. would that need engineering in victoria? What are the general rules to re-body a car, or do you have to get an engineers certificate reguardless?

Seat Belts

Hey guy's. I am looking to put rear seat belts in my Brougham. I need some seat belts the same look/colour as is in this picture. I need front passenger (it has been replaced for some reason by a black one) and two rear ones. If anyone has any they want to sell or know someone who does, that would be great! I am willing to pay good money for the right ones! Oh P.S. this picture does the seat fabric condition no justice, its acutally very shmick! :-)
Cheers, Josh

The motors pretty old by the looks of it but I was told theres no major probs with it. Will getting it recond. give me my power? Or a new carby and extractors? Im trying to do any work myself with limited mechanical knowledge....and limited cash. The end result is I wanna give my Mrs a run for her money in her s

Fully manulised trimatic/TH350

Hey,
I'm sure something along these lines would have been asked before, so sorry...
Can anyone tell me a rough price you would expect to pay for a fully manulised Trimatic/TH350(obviously more than trimatic) and a traffic friendly stall converter-what rpm would you wise folk suggest? Its either this option or a reco M21, but I would kinda like the cruising/city friendly(constant clutch work gives me the s**ts in the city!) aspect of an auto. By the way its behind an HJ 308 dual fual mild crow cam, nothing to monstrous. I would really appreciate your help, thanks in advance.
