Thorttle Advance Hose Missing - Vk Dizzy Conversion

G'Day All,

I have an 85' VK with a 202 Black, running a Varajet II Carby. Recently (say 2 weeks back) I started to get big problems with the timing an general operation of the car; and I ended up diagnosing that it was the EST dizzy; so in light of that I installed an after market Electronic Dizzy (a remake an old bosch design; probably a after market VH design; in order to scrap the EST). And a Bosch MEC 718 ignition Coil. I am going to be adding new leads and spark plugs when the leads arrive in the mail next week.

Holden Hearse

Hi all, I noticed in my recent travels a HJ-HZ hearse/ station wagon in a car yard at Blacksoil, I didn't have my camera on me to take photo's, but stopped and had a quick look, appears in good condition, the guys asking $10 990, for it, the bed rollers are gone from the back, and it has the back seat with heaps of rear legroom, so if there are any holden hearse lovers out there it's waiting.
Cheers Dave

Did Stormin' Norm ever drive a Mercedes?

This was the original AMG Mercedes. It's two tonne of 6.8 litre 300SEL. This car was (still is) a legend in Europe in the early 1970s.
It would have been interesting to see Moffatt chasing it around the Mountain in his Phase 3.
After it finished it's racing career French Aerospace bought it to use as a test rig for aircraft landing gear. It was the only vehicle they could find that could carry the weight of the equipment (they stretched it 75mm), accelerate to the speed required, then stop in the space they had left.

Off topic old tractor question

t sure if any of you blokes have had much to do with old tractors but someone might be able to help with my petrol grey fergie starting problem.

Ok it hasnt been run for approx 3-4 years and I'm trying to get it running as I've got it for sale, It has had a 12 volt conversion, I put my patrol battery in it and it turns over fine but I have no spark at all. I put a known good coil in it, but still no good. Points are opening fine. Any ideas? Anything else I should check?

Chrome plater in Brisbane region sought

Can anyone recommend someone that will do show quality chrome plating in the Brisbane area? Have seen some bad reviews for one local shop, there doesn't seem to be anyone in the Brisbane region anymore that does plating albeit quality work anymore. Am reluctant to send parts interstate due to risk of damage plus added costs for transport.

Leave it alone !

I bought this compressor tank a couple of weeks ago and before i set it all up, i'll hit it with the sandblaster and spray gun.....

I'm wondering but i dunno, do you think i should try opening a hatch (see first attachment) to clean out (and inspect) the inside of the tank ... dunno really :-O

If i do open it, i'd guess there will be a rubber seal or gasket to keep it airtight (or sealing compound???) that i would need to replace; Not sure to be sure :-O
I'm thinking a car inner tube and just cut a big patch/membrane to sandwich behind the hatch, huh?
