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.

Hi I have recently changed engine in my hq.Engine started but ran really rough it was back firing out the carby and i have noticed the oil colour is grey (mixed with water) after playing around with the timing the engine wont start at all and now I have found there is water in the rocker cover and inlet manifold I was wondering would I have to rebuild the head and if the bottom end will still be ok or can I just change the head gasket to remedy this problem.Any help please my car misses the road.

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.

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?

Kristoffer Williams - Aussie 4spd shifter on 3spd snycho

Is response to the earlier qu about fitting a Aussie 4spd shifter to a syncho 3 spd.
Here's a bracket my dear old dad knocked up for me when I stripped 1st gear on my M20. I had it in a HG but same principle. (ignore the fact its on a Trimatic here - for illustration as its a similar shape to the 3spd).

How do u make your Chrome shine

Just wondering what product people use to shine up the chrome on there beloved vehicles? e.g. bumpers, trim etc.
I used autosol when I reasmbled the car, but I am after a "spray on then wipe off" sort of product that i can use after i have washed her, or after a run.

Cheers, Ron

Wanted - Holden HQ ute

Hi all, I'm presently looking to buy a HQ ute, not a 1 tonner. I'm on my L's presently and looking for a first car for when I get my red P plates. I'm in Moss Vale, NSW and looking for something close to home if possible. Must have rego and be road legal, etc. Would like one that has only authentic Holden parts and minimal rust. If anyone has one or can put me onto one, please drop me an email at rees_3801(at)hotmail.com

Regards,
Evan.

my new project, 350 chev hq one tonner

Image: 

Evening guy's. Just thought i'd share my new project with you all. It's a HQ one tonner with a 4 bolt, 350 chev and turbo 400. Yes it has a HJ front end, yes it has bog and rust but i've never built a H series holden so i'm in for a steep learning curve. I appologise in advance if i ask any dumb questions but it's only cause i don't know the right answers. 1st question is do i need a mod plate to register the car in QLD with the 350 in it. 2nd question, the HQ dash pad is screwed but i can get a mint HJ dash pad. Can they be inter changed? I know the dash facia is different.
