Hitler reacts to Chev badges on Holdens

One of my other toys is a Ducati and I found this on a Ducati Forum (go figure).
Hope some of you guys have a sense of humour.

WB Series 2 Caprice Rear Axle

Hi I am building a variety bash car and need a spare axle for my 1984 WB Series II Caprice. It is standard and has a 308. Rear brakes are disks
Is the axle the same as used in HQ - HZ?
I'm in Adelaide and any ideas on where I could get one and what it may be worth with bearing would be appreciated.
Thx

Diff Conversion Specialists in Sydney, Canberra, Wollongong ?

I need to arrange a modified DIFF with HQ stud pattern for my HR. Can anyone suggest specialists in Sydney/Wollongong/Canberra? Most likely a Borg-Warner Commodore diff, shortened and re-studded to HQ (matches my front end). Cheers, Chris.

Kingswood utes at Marulan?

Hi all, My first post here. I've heard from friends and family that there are two Holden Kingswood utes sitting in a paddock just south of Marulan, NSW on the left hand side of the highway heading towards Goulburn. Does anyone have any more info on them, even just confirm the model and type of ute.

Cheers,
Evan.

HZ 253 Extractors / Compatability with Commodore

Hey guys,

I called some wreckers in Dandenong, Victoria, who are specialise in old Holden parts to get some extractors for my 253 HZ engine, which seems to have an exhaust leak problem. They said the only ones they have are commodore V8 extractors, and they're not sure if they'll fit, and the guy who does know isn't there at the moment.

Anyone got any experience?

Richard.

Ignition coils.

I recently fitted an electronic dizzy to the old 179, came with the bosch HEC-716. Would any of the Mallory coils (MAA-29216 or 219) be of any advantage? I'm trying to make a list of stuff to get from Summit and want to know if changing from the Bosch will be worth it. I'm getting everything sorted before the 202 goes in. I've also got Taylor SpiroPro leads but the leccy dizzy came with Top Guns, should I replace the terminals on the leads to refit the Taylors?
Cheers.
