SA Holden Clubs

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone knows of any holden clubs here in SA I could join. Ive got an EH ute - the main premise of joining a club was to obtain vintage registration for the old girl.
Any ideas?
Cheers

Recommend a timing light

Can anyone recommend me a timing light? I am prepared to spend about $100. Everything I have looked at looks like cheap [Naughty Pottyword]e. I currently have a cheap [Naughty Pottyword]e one and can't use it during the day because it is so weak.
Any help is appreciated.

Matt

HR diff strong?

Is a HR diff any stronger than an EH diff? I have an opportunity to drop a HR diff into my EH and was wondering whether to bother or not.

Value of mint 1975 308 HJ Premier Wagon

Hi there.

Just want some advice on the value of a car.
I am selling my grandfathers car for him and would like to know what sort of money it is worth.

Details as follows:

1975 HJ Premier Station Wagon V8 308 Auto,
One owner since new 52,000 km, has been pretty much in storage since new with the occasional trip from Melbourne to Welora(?)
Dark metallic Blue Paint in mint condition
Interior is as brand new, and has had covers fitted to ensure they are not damaged.

The car is as new, totally original, nothing is missing, not a dint, and it looks great.

We have no idea how much it is worth and any idea would be great.

A woman, while at her mothers funeral met this guy whom she did not know. She thought this guy was amazing, so much her dream guy that she fell in love with him instantly, but never asked him for his number and could not find him.

A few days later, she killed her own sister.

Question: What was her motive for killing her sister?

Parts Wanted

Hello,
I was wondering if anyone could help me find a set of decent 3:36 gears with an LSD unit for my HQ 10 bolt. The gears must be in reasonable condition, but I dont mind replaceing worn cones etc.. in the LSD. I would be grateful to hear from anybody in south australia who is selling for a REASONABLE price, as I am aware of what to look for and how much they are worth.

I can be contacted at baldguy10@hotmail.com and will either pay cash or try and swap for parts.

Many Thanks Jake.

350 chev relocate power steering pump - new bracket wanted (mid mount?)

Hi guys,
I currently run a 350 chev in a HQ, and I need to make room where it currently sits. i.e. I have to move the power steering pump down from it's current location (It bolts up to the Passenger side cylinder head and extractor bolt)
I've heard of mid mount power steering pumps that run off the lower accessory bolts on the passenger side or the timing chain bolts on the passenger side.
Anyone got suitable brackets for sale?
It's a long water pump.
Thanks

cam

hi everyone, seeing as though i cant get my hands on a 308 from a VN, ive decided i might just do up my little red 202 for now. Basically it has a stock cam, how much am i looking at for a better one? what percentage improvement should i expect? and what kind of cam should i get? ive been told a racing cam could be alright, i mean, i really dont care about handling, all i want is speed and better burnouts :P.

thanks.
