my original ej

just like to show you all my ej. Picked it up about a month ago off some full nice guy for 5 grand. All completely original and in pretty much mint condition. Came with all original books, and papers when it was first sold, original tools, new tyres and only 70,000 original miles on the clock. What do you all think? Cheers.

rubber kits and more!

morning fellas, i was just after new rubber seals for my ej sedan cos mine have now fuked out. Does anyone have any rubber kits for sale? I was looking at buying two sets (a set for my girlfriends car too). Also how much am I looking at price wise?

Also, soon im looking at putting a nice set of white wall tyres on. Does any body have any advise on any brands, any shops and prices? Let me hear it?
At the moment I have a set of brand new Goodyear Sport 70 (185/70 R13) on the original rims. Just looking at selling the tyres though, if any one is interested let me know.

Thanks all,
keep up the good work rusty!

Clutch fan operation - WB Deville

On another note, how do I know when my clutch fan is dead. On a cold startup the fan roars like mad, and as she warms up, you can hear it suddenly disengaging. This does not the sound of the autochoke cutting out as mine needs a bit of prompting by a stab on the accelerator. This clutch fan behaviour seems to be the opposite of what you'd expect. The temp gauge only moves above normal after long ascents, but never past halfway. What are your thoughts?

Steering Play on WB Statesman

My Deville has had a little too much play in her steering since I bought her 22,000km ago. I have always assumed that the play was coming from the steering box as it felt very similar to when my old Corolla boxes needed tightening. However today I finally got around to having a proper look at it with the help of someone turning the wheel and noticed that the majority of the play seems to be coming from the flange joining column with box. I was surprised to see that this flange relied on a fibrous disc for its strength. I am assuming this disc is there to dampen vibration through the steering much like the purpose of an engine mount. Is this the case? Is replacement a pain?

202 engine modifications - HELP!!!

Hi Helpful Holden people,
Please help. I have many questions which endless internet searching and pub discussions cannot answer.

I have an EK Holden (pink sedan with flames.) It has a Rod Hadfield Chassis kit, HR disc brake front end, HT holden Diff centre, 5 speed Celica gearbox, and most importantly, a red 202 engine.

I intend to perform a few modifications to the engine in a bid to make it go faster (of course.) I'm using secondhand bits which have fortuitously come my way, so I'm seeking some advice as to whether I'm on the right track...

Firstly I have sourced a "Blue Motor" 12 port head and had 15/1000 inch shaved off it. How much difference is this likely to make to my compression? I know the Red / Blue 202's ran 9.4:1 with a stock head.

URGENT HELP REQUIRED

Someone please give advise. Today why driving next to hyde park i noticed steam coming from the bonnet. The sterio wasnt working either so i popped the bonnet and filled the park full of steam from the radiator which was blowing out radily. It looked about a million degrees down there!!

On closer inspection, later when it cooled, i started it again and noticed the thermofan wasnt working either. The guy before me hooked it up to run for a few minutes when you turn the ignition off to cool the beast down.

Whats wrong, How do i fix it?
