Panel Van Tailgate

Hey Dudes,

I'm half expecting they are all different, but which H model Holdens share the same tailgate as the HK. I've got one that completely destroyed with rust and needs replacing. A HK PVAN tailgate seems like it will be hard to source, so if there are any later models that share the same lower and upper rear section let me know.

Thanks peoples!!

Number on rail

Here's one for you all.

I've been speaking to this guy about buying his HQ. I was talking to him last night and he was telling me that before he bought it, it was unregistered and he had to blueslip it (NSW).

Apparently he had some hassles in doing so because the ID number on the "rail" (?) did not match with the VIN or other codes. I wasn't aware that there codes anywhere other than on the compliance plates in front of the fire wall and on the engine. Is this not the case? What do you think this guy is going on about?

Thanks

Diff Swap

Can someone please let me know what is involved with shimming a diff center on a sailsbury center. I have no problems changing the center (was given an lsd center but no axles or housing and am going from open wheel to lsd. I have done this many times on cars but never before have shimmed a diff but read on here a couple of weeks ago that you should. Also what tools are required and parts needed?

hq doors

The idiots from Car Audio Excellence, Blacktown cut a piece of the inner door to make way for the screwdriver to fit a mounting bracket, f***ing arsewpies. . luckily though, the door is full of rust, and was planning to change it anyway.
My question is, are all HQ doors the same as, say an HZ? If so, are they completly inter-changable? all the hinges are in the same place, panel clip holes, etc?

suspension

My HQ steers like a boat (more like a carrier actually, but you get the picture). I'm looking at getting new shocks and lowered King Springs. Any caveats I have to look out before getting it done?

holley idle??

Just wondering what the 2 screws on the side of a 320 holley actually do. I have been told they either lean or richen the mix or just let more premixed mix to allow it to idle. I have also heard that they richen when screwed in not lean out like the old stromberg. Any ideas?

Size matters

Hiya Gang!

Just wondering if anyone knows what the cubic inch would be on a 253 with a 40 thou bore? Someone told me about 260. Does that sound right?

Brake problems

The converty has an intermittent braking problem on the front passenger's wheel which has me a bit stumped. It has a HR disc front end which has been working perfectly up until a couple of weeks ago. When you ease the brake pedal right to the floor (say coming to a stop sign) the left front wheel kind of grinds and occasionally locks up. When you slam the brakes on, the wheel pretty much locks right up. It only happens occasionally and only when the pedal is most of the way down. The pads look on and there's no scoring on the rotor, pressure looks ok and I had the booster rebuilt not too long ago.
