window winder hassles

Hey all,
I am currently re-vamping and upgrading all the electrics of my holden "sandman" panelvan. I have been attempting to remove the door cards without much success. namely I cant remove the manual window winders. they are chrome and have a wide base. for the life of me I cant get in and pop off the silly round clip that holds them on. (I cant even see the thing... even with much bending of the door covers...) how the f is this achieved?

Oh and while im at it, I am attempting to get the central locking working, when I bought the car there were actuators in the doors, but they arent strong enough to move the extremely stiff locks. Any suggestion what I can do about this?

Need GTS Tacho for HZ Kingy

hey does anyone have a GTS Tacho for a HJ - HZ i need one mine [Naughty Pottyword] itself and popped the coil, lucky my mate towed me back with his Suzuki Sierra 4x4, we were mucking around in the paddock, i wouldnt have got back to the house from the other side of the paddock on our land if he hadnt towed the car.
Any reason why it would pop the coil like that, this 253 is getting ripped out as soon as i get a crank for a 426 Hemi

Cheers

Can someone please explain this to me ?

This is part of a long forgoten modification done by Holden dealers on late EH HD HR & HK's with no syncro on first gear.This plate is fitted between the main case & the extension housing when a double row rear race is fitted.This was a popular upgrade for fleet & taxi owners. This inexpensive mod. prolonged the life of the box considerably.Race not included.

Black Spark Plugs

G'day all, basic mechanics knowledge help needed. I replaced the plugs on the Ute last night, as the car was running real rough. They were covered in black cr ap. Other things to note are - a little noise when I accelerate hard from the engine, sounds like tappets.
And black smoke also when I floor it. What would this indicate, could it be worn valve seals, or something - would it be expensive to fix, or would it be easy to DIY, and where would I get the parts?
Cheers
el.

308 head bolts

Hi Guys,
I have just started pulling down a 308 out of a HQ SS (not the original motor)and found that the two head bolts closest to the inlet manifold have been left out on both heads because the casting in the block has broken at some time. I have asked a few people about this, including mechanics and they all say this common don't worry about it. Has any one had this problem before?

RUST PREVENTION

Gidday all,
Just a simple question about an old holden's worst best friend ----> RUST. How long is rust prevention guarenteed to last? Ie say that somebody had their car sandblasted rustproofed the whole shabangas and 100% rust-free.. (is that possible?) how long would the paint and body last before rust begins to show if car was garaged and driven not too much? I swear that ENRUST advertise lifetime guarentee??? Any one wanna take a shot at answering this for me? Perhaps one for the wise old Streetneat? I obviously need a run down on the whole rust issue, so here's a start.
FIRST RIGHT ANSWER WINS!!!!

What's it worth?

Hi Guy's,

I have an almost all original 1968 HK ute which I'm wanting to sell shortly but am not sure what it's really worth.

It's a white 3spd manual, with blue interior.

My old man picked it up on my behalf, in QLD about a year and a half ago from the original owner who looked after it reasonably well. I drove it down to Sydney in one hit without any probs. Mechanically it's been very reliable, however, I did have the cluth and brakes replaced in Sept. 04.

On the down side it has some rust in the visor, drivers door and tailgate. Also, the fuel guage and speedo are out of action.

Parts

Hi all, I am having a real problem finding some parts for my beast. I need a fuse cover and an ashtray (guts and all) for my WB Ute. I have been on E-Bay, to rare spares and to wreckers but to no avail. Does anyone know of somewhere or someone who would have these items or could at least point me in the right direction. Thanx, Tom

Shes gotta GO

My FJ Project is dragging the chain at the moment, due mainly to a lack of funds, so ive decided to let my Commodore go (why drive a commodore when you can drive an FJ is say, and ive got a HR to get around in for the moment). Anyrate, My commie is a VX SS, with all options. Well maintained, fully serviced, new shocks and injectors and excellent Silver Duco. I would like $25,000 for it, but have decided it needs to go this month, so if you make me an offer you may be suprised just what a bargain you may get! The NSW Rego runs out in mid December, and im willing to adjust the price to compensate (the HR's Due at the same time and I cant afford the two).
