HG Houndstooth

Anyone out there with some original hg monaro - orange/black houndstooth material? only need enough for the front seat bases as the rest in v.good condition!
Perhaps someone has a metre or so tucked away they might like to sell. Or had their interior retrimmed in the reproduction material, with part of the old material in the condition, good enough for me to use.
Very original car with this minor imperfection!......please help!!!!!!!

WTB Premier Armrest (Drivers Door)

As the title says, I'm looking to buy a drivers side black armrest to suit a HX premier.

After the long armrest and would prefer one without an ashtray if possible.

Perfer in excellent/good condition and hopefully not bowed to much.

Does anyone have a spare one laying around they are willing to part with.

Located in Western Suburbs of Melbourne, but willing to travel or pay postage if required.

Can leave your details here or email me at hxpremier8 at hotmail .com

Might consider another colour, if have to.

Cheers
Stuart

HK PREM DIFF HELP

Gday all,
Could someone out in holden land, help us out re my diff choices for my hk prem.
Currently i have a mocked up VH sle commodore diff, non lsd, v8 disc brake diff 2.78 in the car.I have the opportunity to aquire a camaro lsd 10 bolt that has been in a k-t-g before as it has the shock and leaf spring bracket and bump stop welded on.
I have a better than stock 307 that i will be running and im guessing the camaro will be considerably stronger as the axles are a lot thicker than the commodore.
Next will be brakes as the camaro diff has none.The front is already hq disc so im guessing that hq/chev are the same.
Any info to help a guy make a stronger back end would be great. Could go a 9 inch i know but it wont be that tough aswell as budget just a cruiser for me and my son.

Bloody crap wont start

Hi everyone, I need help starting my Holden, Its only Holden in name - Holden Barina, 1992 model (suzuki swift etc).

I have just rebuilt the motor and refitted it and it wont start. Timing is set correct, I have had trouble with spark. Its yellow in colour but doesn't appear to be strong.

The red ignition lights are on in the dash, I have fitted new batteries to the imobilizer and its working fine.

Red six cam gear installation

I've done this a fair few times before but since I've been crook I seem to have lost my touch. I've got the timing gear about half way onto my cam but can't seem to get it any further on.

Took it down to a "reputable" engine shop and like every other time I have been there in the past the owner tried everything in his power to buy stuff from him rather than use what I've already got.

15" Spare in a VH

Hi all, Has anyone been able to fit a 15" spare tyre in a VH wagon? A 205/65R15 wont fit but a 195/60R15 will, but I suspect I will also need a narrower rim to fit under the floor. I need a 15" wheel to clear my front brakes and with a bit of tyre swapping I can use a 14" spare if I need to. Any ideas?
Thaks Guys.

VK calais seat rails/runners in Perth?

Hi all,

I bought a set of calais front seats and need the rails/runners to install them... they've been unbolted straight off the bottom of the seats, so I'd need the whole assembley. I do have VH SLE ones but would prefer to leave them on the seats so I can sell them. If anyone has a set (or can take them off calais seats in bad condition or something) that would be great. hope you can help!

Cheers

Don's vinyl ute

HI Folks,
This is Don and his old HR ute. Don had a bike accident a few years back and he asked if I would show his old car on this site.
You'll have to see the bigger image, but if you look closely you can see that the whole car is covered in the stuff used for vinyl roofs on cars!

Neg wire on the GTS Clock mainboard

Well soldered in the new capacitors, turns out they where electrolytic after all. Anyhow now a new problem, the negative wire has broken away from the mainboard and I have no idea from where it came to solder back on. Looking at the picture can anyone tell where it goes back on. Maybe if someone's got one pulled apart they can have a look for me.

Ta, Daz.

What is an old holden?

I am just curious of your thoughts....in relation to is an oldholden a vintage or such term of vehicle.

Lets say I'm referring to toronas, kingswoods and other vehicles of the similar era made by other companies and sold in Australia. But not just cars that are hotted up, as it would include everyday drivers, project cars, learner vehicles and such other aspects of use.

Regards,

Jesse

GAS CONVERSION Q

hi all.
i am looking at a car soon that the owner tells me has most the gas system on the car, tank lines etc but the gas converter was "taken off to use on another vehicle". this comes with the car but is not installed.
Can anyone help me with the laws regarding getting a RW on this?
If its over 10 years old i need to get it all removed and retested then replaced, which would cost me a bomb.
What if its under 10 years old? Can a mech reinstall it and RW without full removal?
Need to do the best for the limited cash i have.

Wheel Offset

I am looking to change my wheels from a +43 offset to a +3 offset, to check fitting can I place a 40mm spacer to the inside of the wheel and that is where the new wheel will fit or is there another way to go about it.

Cheers

Oil change idea - help?

Gentlemen, other blokes, ladies, etc.

A rare day off for me, so an oil/filter change is on the long 'to do' list.

The 'common wisdom' is to drain the oil after engine has reached operating temp, so that the oil is runny and drains easily. Fair enough.

HOWEVER, is there any merit in this idea? After draining into the sump for hours (overnight) is draining the cold, unturned engine going to actually let MORE oil out.

All thoughts, feedback, experience and smart-*rse comments are welcomed!

HKing - of verbosity/viscosity.

GLOVEBOX BADGE REMOVAL

Image: 

is it possible to remove the badges on the woodgrain glove box doors?

as you can see the 'GTS' one has had some 'bright spark' wipe it over it with something like thinners? and ruin the woodgrain pattern,
so I want to change the 'GTS' badge onto one of the other good doors but I can't access the fixing pins behind the badge.

cheers
