HZ Statesman for sale - OFFERS - Central Coast NSW

Time to get rid of the old 78 Stato Caprice.

242,000km - 308 was rebuilt around 150,000. Blows no smoke but could do with a tune.
Out of rego since March.
Good rubber on dragway mags.
Interior is pretty good, body is straight with some rust around windows and rear quarter.
Paint isn't the best - it's original.

It would be nice to see her go to someone who will restore or reuse.

Ring me (David) if interested, 0423 761 440. Offers welcome.

Water pump or radiator?

Are there any rules of thumb for knowing when your water pump has had its day? Mine isn't making any noise or anything, but on a recent trip back from Sydney she crept up to halfway on the run between Sydney and Marulan (mostly slow ascent) then ran normally from then on. On many previous Sydney-Canberra runs in the summer she didn't budge from normal. I know it probably sounds like I'm nit picking but it seems funny that she ran warmer in freezing weather than in the peak of summer and I'm keen to know why she suddenly moves. I have never seen the gauge move from normal in round town/city driving.

OSSCILATING SPEEDO

HI ALL,

HAD THIS PROBLEM FOR A WHILE, BUT ITS FINALLY DRIVEN ME FULLY UP THE WALL.

DRIVING ALONG LESS THAN 35 MPH AND MY SPEEDO NEEDLE OSSCILATES. ABOVE 35 MPH AND IT SETTLESDOWN, BUT DROP BACK BELOW 35 AND IT OSSCILATES AGAIN.

NOW HERES THE ANNOYING BIT. AS THE ENGINE AND TRANS GET WARMER, THE LIMIT THE NEEDLE STOPS OSSCILATING RISES, eg. FROM 35 UP TO 60 MPH.

HAS ANYONE SEEN OR HEARD OF THIS? I THOUGHT IT MAY BE THE SPEEDO CABLES DRIED OUT AND NEED LUBING. ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.

CHEERS.

Midnite Challange

Hey guys, Have any of you ever been and are playing the game midnite challenge. Its an online based car drag racing game...You start off with a base model car, and you can modify them to the max. Weight reductions and all that jaz, superchargers etc, and these mods all effect the times down the 1/4 mile, you also have to dyno tune and all that [Naughty Pottyword]. you can also home invade, and steal stuff, along with car jack people. Not that i have been able to do either of these.

Theres a Hellava lot of different cars to chose, and as you get better and better, you can sell and buy - trick up different cars. Dont think they have any holdens, as its an american site (i think).

Speedo ajustments

hey all!
i am in the middle of fitting a yellow needle dash into my
wagon, all is going well just wondering how do i ajust the
number of k's on the speedo, as the original gts dash had
genuine 180,000 km before it was stolen, and it seems only fair that i return it to that amount! as this on is at 290,000k
any ideas much appreciated!

cheers

mark

speedo problems

recently my speedo seems to be playing up(vk com), the needle seems to stick at at one place while driving and goes back down as the car is neqrly stopping. Could the speedo cable requires lubrication, if so how do i go about doing this?

thanks

Why are people so one eyed

I am a supporter of STONE BROTHERS RACING, and have been for the past few years, however I drive a HOLDEN. I support SBR 100% in what has happened recently. It wasnt to long ago that there was only one team who were unstopable and that was HRT.
It is quite obvoius that HRT are having a bad run, I feel it is about time people get over it including Mark Skaife and support the V8's for the impressive display of driving and aussie sportsmanship.
People need to release that the people making a big deal of these things at present are all Holden supporters. Dont you think it is good to see some one else win, and who cares if a wire which does nothing causes an uproar, if anybody is a true fan they would have seen that Ross Stone was quite shocked when the points were taken away. Stone Brothers went to Cams and were found not Guilty but were still fined $5000 fro a simple mistake, they are still getting on with it.

Is it safe ?

The next thing on my list of things to learn is engines, so I plan on pulling down and rebuilding a 179 I have laying around. If I weld up a strong little engine stand, will it be safe to bolt the engine to it and fire it up ? Could I expect to jump around and take off ?
