Holden Owners Clubs in Sydney

Hi, can anyone tell me if there is a Holden Owners Club in or around Sydney? I have searched the internet but there doesn't seem to be any suitable. I am currently rebuilding an HZ Kingswood and none of the clubs seem to encompass this model. Day to day I also run a venerable old Commodore VS. 310,000klms, decrepid but just keeps going (that's me and the car!!)

Hz running gear

Hi everyone. I've got a hz ute with a 202 in it. If I put a Aussie 4 speed in it should I put a 3.08 ratio salisbury diff in it or keep the original diff? Cheers brad

Stupid thieves

Last night someone tried to steal my HR that is on the front grass of my house, they did the usual thing and popped the lock and tried shoving a screwdriver down the key hole. The sad thing is for these fools this car has no running gear what so ever, no engine or box just a roller. I had pushed it out the front a week ago after removing the running gear and just pushed it to the side. How dumb can some of these people be? hahaha blind Freddie can see the front is 6inches off the ground due to no weight being over the front.

HELP!!! EH Electronic Distributor help required

Hi all,

I have fitted up a new electronic distributor to the EH, is using a ICR88 coil to match. Have used reapers workguide to wire in the relay, but heres the problem, with the engine off, ignition om, I am getting the full 12 volts to the coil.

Once I start the car, the voltage drops to 6-7 volts, after a few seconds, runs erratically, and stalls.

The only leads running to the coil+ are the 12 volts in from the relay, the + to the Distibutor an dth black (bypass?) original wire back to the ignition

Any guidance greatly appreciated

New H4 Headlight Beams in a HQ???

Hi guys. I went down and brought some new semi-sealed H4 beams to replace my original headlights that are so faded its not funny in my HQ Ute. Just wondering how people have found putting them in before??? so far i've had to cut down the original 3 way connector block that clips on the back of the light and also having trouble with the parker light. Anyone come up with a good solution for that?? The new beams come with an external parker light bulb holder but its too far under the light to use since it will hit the radiator support light holder.

panel van rear quarters

Hello all.
I'm in the process of restoring a HJ panel van.
I've just had the shell stripped and it has revealed some nasties.
My rear quarters are in bad shape and will need to be replaced. A couple of months ago I saw a pair of NOS WB rear quarters on eBay. I should have jumped at the opportunity to buy them.
My question is does anyone have some they are willing to sell or know of any that maybe up for sale. I know theses panel are going to be hard to find but its worth trying.
Kind regards
Andrew

Hidden Aircon options

Hey guys,

I am looking into options for air-con in the HG prem. I did have an under-dash unit with built in vents and fascia to go in, but decided that it would take up too much room for my liking, and wouldn't leave much leg room for the middle passenger in the front. I am now looking for a unit to either hide under the dash, or to go where the heater box would normally go, that I can then run ducting to various vents in the car. I know that vintage air have a unit that would work, but they seem pretty expensive. Are there any alternatives or 2nd hand units out of a different car that would fit with a bit of modification? I am after a evaporator & heater unit combined, so I can do away with the heater box at the same time.

Bedford Van 1980 LWB best engine conversions

Hi all, I have a 1980 LWB Bedford Van with a holden red 202. In preparing to give the old girl a new lease on life and give it a full make over. My long term goal is to travel around Australia in it. Im not sure what to do with the engine and gearbox situation, im after something that will be reliable and not an extreme fuel guzzler but it needs to have a bit more power then the tired old 202 that currently powers it. Any info and ideas from anyone who have done up bedfords and has had experince with engine upgrades (fresh 202, V6 conversion, V8 power) would be a great help.
