13" mags wanted

Has anyone got a set of 4 13" mags (early holden pattern) for sale ? Anywhere from Horsham to Western suburbs of Melbourne ?
A little rough is ok but must be cheap as they're only going on a trailer to pretty it up a little. They're for a mate who travels to Melbourne occasionally so no freight needed.

Also would like a trailer hitch ?
(to suit tandem with brakes).

Wiring up a trailer

When wiring up a trailer, using a 5 pin, does anyone know the colours. I usualy just put whatever colour wire to whatever globe but since doing a mates trailer, i thought i'd do this one properly. All i can remember is the white's used for earth.
Anyone know ?

Radiator catch can

Hi boys & Girls!

Just installed a fancy looking aluminium catch can for my radiator on the tunna. Was wondering if there is supposed to be something for there to be pressure to be released. i.e. my old plastic overflow bottle had a very small hole at the top of the lid, and so did the original WB one when the old motor was in.

This can is totally sealed. Would it be of benefit if I drilled a 1/16th hole or something into the lid or is it fine to be completely sealed?

tramp rods

hi all im new to this site and have a question that i hope someone can give me some advice on.
i have a set of the old tramp rods that id like to put on my wellbody ute. when i brought them i was told that they would fit most rear leaf spring setups but when i got them home and looked at bolting them up i realised that they dont. they are supposed to be mounted under the rear axle but with the brackets that supports the shockies its not possible. im sure they arent mounted in front of the axle because it just doesnt look right, so i figure tha they cant be fitted to my ute or i need to make a modification.. hey i also know that these bars are illegal but id like to mount them every now and then for a little show and fun in the future at the nostalgia drags
in anticipation of some knowledge and advice
from an old holden and old school fan thanks

6 cyl Cam brand ??

I have a cam i was given with a 186 I'm building for my 1ton and i want to know what it is and who makes it so i can get the specs and dial it in properly. All it has on it is PC 288 s 110 (then a degree symbol but cannot make one on computer) I'm thinking the s is for solid but unsure apparently it is xu1 spec but i don't know.
Thanks for any info
Ash

253 Modification and Maintenance advice

I have a Holden 253 V8 Engine in my 1982 Jeep CJ7 and am trying to find more information to maintain, modify, and troubleshoot this motor. I bought the Jeep with the 253 already fitted. I believe the 253 is from a 78-80 HZ.

I am probably going to buy a Haynes HZ Workshop manual, but can anyone advise any other manuals or resources to find more info about this motor. I am only new to this stuff but want to get my hands dirty.

Here are a couple of things I want to try to do:

1) Replace the closed airbox with an open type airfilter. I bought the Jeep with the "open type" but had to fit the closed airbox for other reasons, so I already have the filter and pipes etc. Trouble is I had a mechanic change this for me to get it done quickly, but I failed to take note of how it was fitted to reverse the change later and I want to try it myself to get my hands dirty.

2) Refit all the non-working guages like OilPressure, Temperature, fit a vacuum guage, etc.

3) I had the motor cut out on my one day in hot weather on a rough and remote dirt track travelling at about 60kms. It thankfully just started after about 30mins trying to get mobile service to call for assistance. It could have been fuel vaporisation at the time but I am just trying to find something that can help me identify and troubleshoot it further and to even help build up some of my roadside motor fix-it skills. I was stuck and stranded at the time with no idea (damn, LOL!). I have not had the same issue since.

4) When I turn the motor off, often the motor keeps chugging for a few seconds before it cuts out... and then the motor doesn't start for up to 20-30mins later unless I keep turning the key and pumping for about 30seconds. Not that I know, but perhaps this is fuel pump related ... again, trying to find something I can lookup troubleshooting tips.

There are other things too but this is the basic stuff to get me started...
thanks heaps for you advice ....
