Sheds are down again!!!!!

Hi all,

Maybe it's just me but I have been trying to open my shed since about 10pm last night and cannot get in to it (or any of the sheds for that matter)

I have had brief moments of success but when I tried to create a new album I got error messages repeatedly.

Can the site admin look in to this or at least let me know that they are aware of the problem?

Maybe someone else can try my shed and let me know how they go.

regards
Darren

What have we found??

Gi'day. Newbie here, have had a good look around and am enjoying what I've seen. My neighbour has a HK Monaro in the shed and the compliance plate is missing. What we would like to know is what the numbers stamped on the firewall mean? There is no engine or trans in the hole either.

HK36803M

Does anyone have any idea??
Thanks for looking.

carby troubles

hi, im having a few troubles with my new carby. i just installed a ww strommy onto my 192.

the first prob is the heater hose going from the back of the manifold to the heater box is in the way and holds the throttle open slightly, making it idle at 2500. the manifold is a standard 186s one. at the moment ive got the hose held back by a peice of wire but is slightly kinked, is there any alternative.

second, the car is running realy rough at low revs, when you take off there is a majour loss of power and the car hesitates and nearly stalls this also happens a bit in the higher revs, i dont know weather this is a vacume leak, tuning probs or something else. the carby came off a 253 so it has v8 jets and i have put a kit through the carby. could you also help me with tuning, ie - normal rev setting, how far to turn the mixture screws, ect.

next, i hve disconected the rod from the auto choke and the rod from the choke plate to the throttle ear thingy so i can bypass the auto choke and use the cable choke. whenever i open the throttle the ear swings and messes up the idle. at the moment ive got the ear held in place by wire, how can i fix this.

last, whenever it revs high the fanbelt screeches, it never did this before. thanks

I Need a ute - anyone wanna swap a FJ?

Image: 

Here is a copy of my ad I put in the classifieds - ill paste it to here so I dont have to retype it!!
Im happy just to sell the J, so if anyone knows anyone that wants one, let me know....
1955 FJ Holden sedan, 2 tone green. Runs and drives well. Dark forrester green roof starting to fade, hovever lighter Glenn green body in good condition. Car has no rust. Interior needs small tidy up & new hoodlining. Needs new tyres as original type ones are starting to show signs of age. 132 Grey motor runs well, and has recently had new clutch. Car is in overall good original condition, it is however currently unregistered.
Wanting to swap for early Holden Ute. Nothing after HR. Im not swapping an original clean FJ for a rusted out bomb. Paint condition is not a problem, as long as it has little to no rust. Prefer with rego, but not important.
May also look at any Landcruiser Tabletop/wagon...
Cheers
Dave

X2 decals/stickers

G'day guys, my first post on these forums and I'm hoping someone can help me out. I have seen two different kinds of X2 stickers that sit on the rocker cover - one says Holden X2 and the other says Holden 186 X2 (I assume it would also say Holden 179 X2 on the HD models). The sticker kits for sale at Rare Spares and on eBay only say Holden X2. Does anyone know which one is correct and if the eBay and Rare Spares ones are incorrect are there any other places that supply these stickers?

Cheers,
Dan

My HJ GTS rebuild pics

Image: 

Hi all,

I bought myself a scanner today and am in the process of scanning all the pics I took when I rebuilt my HJ GTS way back in 91-93.

I have also created a new album which documents the building and fit out of my shed.

Unfortunately the sheds are down at the moment which is frustrating my progress.

The HJ GTS was a genuine 308/T400 but had had a hard life before I got hold of it. The engine and trans were not that old when I got it so all I did with them was clean them up and chuck them back in.
It went quite well and would smoke it up for a good 50 metres when given a gutfull from around 25km/h.
Unfortunately (and unbeknown to me) the flex plate was a trimatic version and let go in a big way doing exactly that one day.
It tore the centre out of the thing and shattered the bellhousing.
The pics cover the majority of the rebuild but as my camera was stolen towards the end of the build I lost quite a few pics.
Here's a sample pic for you and don't forget to check out my albums (when the sheds are working again!!!)
