who knows fuels???

hq races on the weekend, the bloke who bought my old car was having a hell of a time.

long story short i was thinking suspect fuel, so he had some of his fuel tested. it was a major brand that's i/d symbol you would find on the beach... their premium fuel.

the symptoms gave all the indications of hot vapourising problems, would go for one lap fine, 2nd lap the problems started, then got worse from there until it was DNF DNF DNF simply undriveable! yet the ambient temperature was only around 12-14 degrees!

so, care to guess the ethanol content?? between 25 and 30%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

wagon tailgate query

Hi guys I was just wondering if someone could offer some advice. I've just had my HQ completely repainted and replacing all the rubbers etc, they all wen in fine until I got to the tailgate bailey channel. It went in easily enough but when I wind the window up it lines up with each side no problem and winds up easily, but it gets to the very top it wont line up, it keeps catching on the inside edge. I had a look at the old rubber that got replaced and it looks to have done the same thing.

Spray Painting Help

Had my first attempt at spray painting today using an epoxy primer. Using a HVLP gun with 2mm nozzle. When I first depressed the trigger it "spurts" out a few large drops of paint before you get the fine paint spray. Why would this be (I was thinking paint had too much thinner?). Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Grey motor engine number

Thanks all, all of the help much appreciated. I don't have any information on the original car, I picked the motor up at a wrecker. One further question if I may, several of the push rods are bent or have been straightened. Were or are competition pushrods available for the Grey motor?
Cheers

weird auto problem

hi all, it's been a while!

wondering if you could help me out with an issue im having with the trimatic in my kingswood. when its cold, it will flare badly between 1st and 2nd, sometimes getting stuck in neutral until it comes to a stop, and then it will change down to 1st again. if you put it in low gear, it will hold 1st until you hit pretty high revs, then change no problem. if you then shift into drive, it will be fine after that.

Stolen EH. Poor Bastard, this would be your worst nightmare, wouldn't it ?

Not my car but posting this on behalf of the unlucky guy who had this pinched
http://www.youtube.c...
***UPDATE**REWARD IS NOW $10K**GENUINE OFFER!
This car was stolen in 1988 from Victoria St, Altona Meadows, sure it was a while ago but you never know. Karma can be a bitch!
I had this car up for sale and had three guys rock up as a genuine buyer, they were friendly, asking the right questions etc. On this day the battery was flat. of course the boys were keen to help with a push start! We only drove a short distance. On the way back the main guy asked if he could drive, have a feel, understandable! I thought why not.
I left the motor running, went around to the passenger side. Yep! Door was locked, in gear and taking off.

Whyalla 4 (shipyard car park)

Found a couple of old photos on a drive at work, thought I'd share them up here since they're old Holden related.
All I know is they are early shots of Whyalla SA.
