Provo's 75 Sandman

Just thought I'd show a pic, taken in 1983, of my old HJ Sandman.
Baby 253 with Yella Terra heads, high-dome pistons and a 350 Holley, pity I could never find the cause of it overheating at times.
Blew 1st in the M20 box, which at that time in Townsville, North QLD, would be about $750 bucks exchange. Drove it to Sydney on holidays, minus 1st gear, and exchanged the box for a reco M21 for $350. Much better box.
Had the usual cancer around the roof "gutter" and in the rear guards.

lowering job

hi all i finally got some lowered springs and shockers for my kinga. at last it will look like ive actually done something to it and not look like a stocker anymore.
ive done heaps of little things but it will be nice to see something major in appearance done to the old girl.
ive got king springs allround superlows in front , torry superlows rear (hoping about 70 mm lower according to the bloke at king springs) with shorter rear shocks.
i'll load some pics in my shed tommorow .
just seeing the difference in the shorter shocks to standard is awsome cant wait.

Cooling system curiosity

G'day,

I'm just in the middle of upgrading my cooling system on a HJ 253 on straight gas.

My first question is, what is the best order to connect up the gas converter, heater box, water pump and thermostat? (The thermostat housing has 2 small outlets, and the water pump also has 2).

elec-trickery

long time no see.

problem with the stato.

voltage constant 13.8 v through the ignition bypass relay (switched by the yellow standard ignition ballast wire), constant 13.8v to the ceramic ballast resister, then let the games begin. From the coil side of the resister, the ignition voltage goes nuts, from 4v to 18v, cycling rapidly, like my multimeter goes completely AWOL. Is this a normal happening or is something up? I kinda remember it once being a constant ummmm about 7v a while ago once the resister had warmed up.

HQ-Z Doors wanted--> Brisbane Region

Hi all,

I was after a set of doors for my HQ Sedan...I guess condition is not much of an issue at this stage...have been to a few wreckers and was pretty much told good luck...haven't been to Early Holden Spares in Brissy yet as they're closed and moving to Capalaba. I was looking at taking off the doors on my HQ to strip them back and attempt to repair them...although i'm not too sure if they're worth repairing or finding another set etc...I guess that is my next question. What would be the cost to get all 4 doors rust repaired (with new welded sections but not too extensive work needed) if I were to take them all to a panel beater, excluding paint?

I am trying to decide if its worth repairing what I have already myself OR
take to a panel beater to fix up OR

Hi all,

Thanks

Melbourne electroplaters

Gday, Im looking to get the front and rear bumpers, along with the light surrounds of my LJ rechromed.
I live in Melbourne, and was wondering if anyone knew of, or have delt with any electroplaters in Melbourne that have produced a decent finish at a reasonable price.

I know that Rare Spares do changover bumpers, but i would like to compare the prices with an electroplater to see where the better value lies.
Any information and help would be much appreciated.

Cheers 73LJS

My WB, as is/was

A bloke said I could buy this from him about two months ago, agreed to the price, shook hands and off he went to get it. I thought he had forgotten about our deal but I got home from work the other day and there she was. $500 well spent I thought.
I,m not quite sure what I want the ute to "be" yet, so I'm open to suggestions?
Cheers
Greg

what's this 8-track from? plus stuff 4 sale

Image: 

Hi guys, just clearing out some stuff and found this contraption. It came with my HT monaro when I bought it...

Initially I thought it was a HX Le Monaro 8-track, but on closer inspection i don't think it is...

Anyone know what is actually from? I'm not even sure it's from a Holden... in fact, i google searched it and the only reference to that model number is some guy asking if its from an XY GTHO... wishful thinking I reckon, but I've got my fingers crossed... any clues anyone??

It's got Deluxe 8 Track written on it and a sticker that says the model number is PU-601.
