metal heater box on HKTG

Ive never seen a metal heater box on a HKTG before.
Did they exist or is this a home made job?
This ute was being wrecked on a NZ site.

under the cowl

This is the before and after of the rust repair ive done under the cowl. I Think this area gets ignored most of the time as it is out of sight. I want it to last a long time so all the rust in the area had to go. Ive replaced part of the windscreen pillar, the plate on top of the door pillar, part of the door pillar, the part where the top guard bolts on, and part of the air vent tray (dunno what it is called). took me a while but it was my first one. now for the other side..... Ill eventualy put up heaps more pictures when i have the time. (and some free internet)

HT/G 140MPH Speedo

Hey guys,

I have a 140MPH speedo out of a HT/G GTS dash.

It has a broken needle, but other than that appears to be in working condition.

I also have a Tacho lense with shift needle

Are these worth anything?

Cheers
Dave

Hi All,

Im 25 and i have a fully orginal/immaculate HZ Kingswood SL.

1 owner the guy sold it only cuz he had to shift into old peoples home.

it is baby blue with light blue interior, the interior is in better cond than a new car, it has orginal aircon and in immac cond apart from having a vynal roof, which now is off and has rust in roof ( nothing major ) im going to strip car and respray car a different colour ( same era ) im thinking atlantis blue, i want to sit the car on the ground and keep whitewalls and hupcaps and trims on her.

The BIGGEST thing im having troubles with is she has a red 202 ( DONE 247,000k ) so do i keep the red 202 and try keep close to orginal as i can? or do i dump a wild 308 in her?

Failed Timing Light

I had to repair my 25 year old Xenon Timing Light today.

There was no Silence of the Lambs Inverter squeal (the sound Nightvision Glasses make) when the Trigger was activated.

Inside the unit, the Switch Contact had broken away from the Trigger and had to be glued back in place.

The Trigger Wire had to be soldered back into place too.

First start is almost here.

Running over all of the nuts, bolts, fuel lines and wiring for a nervous final check. Mechanic will be here later this week while we fire the EJ up for the first time. Exciting time, but a little anxious with that voice in the back of your head " did you torque that correctly, what gap...."?

Wiring still messy, but will sort out hiding it all once we are sure it is running well. Wish us luck

Torque converter, flex plate gap

Hi all, I have just got a new engine and th400 for my HZ . I tried to bolt the torque converter and flex plate togeather, but there is roughly a 1/4 inch gap. I've tried to slide the converter out a bit, but it feels like it is hitting on something. I made sure it had no spigget bearing before I installed it. So I'm really not sure.
Appreciate any help

Cheers mark

Still bleeding brakes

READ OLD THREAD HERE.

So I bought a new master cylinder bolted it on but left the brake line outlets open, filled it with fluid and pumped the brake pedal until fluid started squirting out but now I've been told I should have had my fingers over the outlets to bleed it properly, is that right? The pedals still the same as before after bleeding all the brakes again, dropping straight to the floor, I took it for a drive to bed the pads in and it pulls up ok but the pedal just travels too far. I bled them again when I got back and still no difference.
