The FJ Holden Movie

For anyone with Foxtel, Austar or Optus:

Fox Classics has "The FJ Holden" on tonight at 12.10am AEST - or 2.10am for their 2 hour delay channel.

Just a heads up for those that have Foxtel and are still up.

Cheers,

Webber

What do ya think? Still no good

Not old Holden, but I would like people's opinion.

My VT has been getting hot.
Temp hasn't been over half on the gauge, but fans still kick in.

Anyway, reservoir/overflow tank is full. Carefully took the rad cap off, it was very low.
It took way too much water. After a few mins after it seemed good, it boiled over and blew heaps of steam/water.

I've 'bleed' the cooling system about 6 times with no luck.

Heaters inside are hot.

Every time when I think it is ok, bring the rev's up and eventually boils over again.
It seems to be getting an air pocket.

Thermostat is ok. Water pump appears to be working going on the heaters warming up like they should.

My thoughts are the bloody head gasket is cactus.

Brenno's Eh

Hi Brenno, i have a EH prem i started doing up 14 years ago, i put a HR front end in, some HK V8 lowered springs in, SLR 500 Vented front brakes and alloy calipers, 9', muncie and a hot 186 in it. hid everything, put batery in boot, hid all wiring, got all under neith, in boot and engine bay, motor smoothed and painted and body in undercoat, then decieded to put a 350 in it, so bought a HQ GTS as a run around which turned into a major build. i have been looking at the High tech highways front end, did you check these out?

old holden footage

Just watched this film on Youtube, some pretty good footage of Adelaide in 1966. Plenty of old Holdens and even a look at Valiants being made.

Black Six Dipstick

I did an Oil change on the VK recently. It took 3.8 Litres total after filling the Oil Filter and running it briefly. The Books say it takes 4.0 Litres Total.

After looking closely at the Dipstick, the Indication Side was 1/4" lower than the blank Side.

I reversed the Dipstick, added another 200 cc's and all came true to the 4.0 Litre Figure.

There's no mention of any preferred installation direction for the Dipstick in any Book I can find.

The Dipstick Tube slopes through a 90 degree turn as it enters the Sump which seems to account for the 1/4" difference.

V6 Conversion Question.

How hard is it to get a VH engeneered for a VS V6 auto in NSW. I have fitted all the emission crap from the VS along with 90% of the electrics(BCM, instuments, door locks, ect..). Basically the only structual part modified is the gearbox crossmember, the rest is bolt in using parts from the VH, VS and VL (Nothing from V6 Conversions).
This is my first attempt at a conversion like this(put EFI on my VK a few years back) and would like to know peoples opinions and problems people have encountered with simalar conversions.

Thanks bobhjwagon

I put out a call for some Borg Warner diff parts recently on the thread below.
http://oldholden.com...
My call was answered by bobhjwagon. Bob came through with his offer as he said he would. All was good except the parts didn't turn up. Turns out that they had been sitting at my local Post Office for a week as the post office forgot to place a slip in my PO box to tell me to come in and collect the parcel.
Once again thanks BOB.
