55 vs 70 amp alternator

Hi all,

Also for the EH, I called Bursons for a price on a new alternator 55amp, they advised that Bosch have stopped making the 55amp version and now to use the 70amp version. Could I ask advice from all, will this be suitable? Any issues I should be aware of?

Thanks
Tom

EJ Finally Fired up

2 Years in August since we brought the EJ home and started the project. Finally some payback for the effort when we fired up the motor for the first time this week. Some minor issues with the fuel pump, but fired up and ran well for the cam bedding in. Will take a video with engine running when we get home this afternoon and upload. Very, very loud with only extractors and no exhaust at this point

HAPPY DAYS!!!

Tom & Blake

WB auto

Can it be done??

I have a WB Tonner and have decided to ditch the M20 (it made more noise than a politician on polling day) and am going for the column auto (bench seat wife long trips), I have a WB auto of unknown history to go in. But also have a black motor and box out of a VK – VH with 120000km and service history. Is it possible to change out the selector shaft on this auto over to the drivers side so it can go in the Tonner?

Coolant warning

This info was on an American forum I use. I don't know if it's substantiated but worth the read. Make up your own mind on the info presented;

Hi,

Information was just published in the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Club Newsletter concerning the use of "extended life" antifreeze in cars over 10 years old.

In a nutshell--don't do it!

Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES should an "Extended Life" antifreeze, which utilizes Organic Additive Technology (OAT, H-OAT, or N-OAT) as one of its chemicals, ever be used in our cars over 10 years old. It attacks the gaskets and gasket cements in our cars, causing major leaks and forcing ultra-expensive repairs. The "Silver Ghost Association" Rolls Royce people have documented massive cooling system failures apparently caused by this anti-freeze product.

Hey

New starter turned up today from ebay. Wacked it on.. and holly smokes it can wind the motor fast. All most redlines it just from hitting the key. *thought* Hit the key when the lights go green and I may get a boost?
Pics are the old original and the new High torque version.

Feel free to add to the pedia.

HELP WITH A HK RIM IDENTIFICATION

Hi I have a holden rim that looks exactly like a HK rim with the same stud pattern but is dated 1972 BUT is only 13 inches. Very weird especially because it has no welds and looks 100% factory. It is made by ROH but is stamped on the inside rim like all holdens. Don't have a clue what it came off as it would suit LJ Torana of that era by date but style is 1968 as per HK. Can anyone shed some light?

Motorex Sydney show grounds July 23 & 24

Hello fellow Old Holdeners, Is anyone going to the Motorex at all?

I would so dearly love to go myself but unfortunately living in SA, it would cost me an absolute fortune in flights, accomodation, and transfers etc just for one or possibly two days.

If anyone is actually going, I would really love to see some pics of some of those magnificent displays, of any neat looking Holdens, especially any FJ utes, running Automatic, LS1/LS2 configuration. Pics of body, interior, engine bay, from many different angles would be greatly appreciated too.

My goal in the next few years is to have my FJ ute back on the road, looking meaner and cleaner than the day it rolled off the assembly line. I would love to get some inspiration from others who have already been down that path.

4inch backspace too much?

Hi everyone, just want to know if theses wheels I'm looking at will fit my HZ sedan. They are 15x8 with 4inch backspace? I know I can get 4 1/2 backspace in, but is 4inch too much.

The wheels I bought are 3.75 backspace, and there is no way they will fit. They don't make 4.5 backspace for this brand of wheel. But they make 4inch ones. So I'm hoping they will fit???

Cheers
