Few little annoying things to sort out.

Hello, hope you all had a good christmas,

Ive got a few problems, one my speedo doesnt work anymore, the cable keeps falling out at the gauge end, the inner cable still spins, whilst moving, should I just get a new cable? Or is there something that I can do to keep it conected to the speedo?

The second problem is that my reversing light doesnt work unless I keep pressure on the cloumn shift. Loose cable or something wrong with the switch? it was working before the shop replaced the seals in the gearbox.

HQ Ram Air

Here is a sneak peek at the Ram Air boot I had made for the HQ. It will enable the carby to draw cool fresh air through 2 69 Camaro hood vents. An aluminium panel will be attached to the underside of the bonnet, over the aircleaner recess, to create a plenum kind of thing.
Another aluminium plate will be attached to the underside of the alloy air cleaner base, which will allow the boot to effect the "seal".

Dragway Mag Wheels centre removal

Has anyone on here removed the centers out of a set of Dragway Mag Wheels before as I want to get the bands re-chromed. I have removed the tyres to find the centers are bolted to the bands by dome top bolts with allen key centers in them & they are bloody tight. What is the best way to remove the bolts ?????? (remember you cannot apply heat as dragway centers are alloy). Cheers.

OAM for John

G'day john and family.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Great to pop back once in a while, seems there is still plenty of heat generated on your site.

Keep up the good work and I hope the new year brings you the riches you deserve.

Cheers Andrew

Santa is pissed.....

'Twas the night before Christmas--Old Santa was pissed.
He cussed out the elves and threw down his list.
Miserable little brats, ungrateful little jerks. I have a good mind to scrap the whole works!

I've busted my ass for damn near a year,
Instead of "Thanks Santa"--what do I hear?
The old lady bitches cause I work late at night.
The elves want more money--The reindeer all fight.

Rudolph got drunk and goosed all the maids.
Donner is pregnant and Vixen has AIDS.
And just when I thought that things would get better
Those assholes from the IRS sent me a letter,
They say I owe taxes--if that ain't damn funny
Who the hell ever sent Santa Claus any money?

And the kids these days--they all are the pits
They want the impossible--Those mean little ****s

Reaper HR re SS

Reaper HR. I talked to you(and others) in a post a while back about HQ SS's. Have you had a chance to see the SS that you mentioned. I would be interested in any pics or info that you may be able to get on it. If you have a look in my shed at the [http://gallery.oldho...|other SS's] section you will see what I have been sent and found so far.
Thanks Paul.

6cyl/v8 springs

hi everyone.
currently i have pedders lowered spring in my HZ which lowered it 30mm, but it still sits just above the tyre and i would like to go lower. Im thinkin of kingsprings super lows, they are the same spring for the rear but the v8 and 6 have a different spring for the front understanderbly. These will lower the car 50-60mm which is what i am looking for, however my question is: what will the difference in height be between 6/V8 springs? i'd like to go as close to 100mm as possible but as its a daily driver i need her to be legal too.
