For Sale: Engine Crane

If anyone is interested, I have an engine crane that is surplus to needs in Victoria.

The ram is leaky and could to with at least one more bolt to hold it in position, it doesn't fold, and could do with a bit of a paint.

Half a dozen VBs and a 4 pack of Jack and Coke will suffice for anyone who wants to collect it. Western Suburbs of Melbourne, ring 0419 369 748 and tell me you want it.

Cheers,

Webber

My HQ running rough and hard to start...

So I have a red 202 in my hq.

Only had it a few months and not too mechanically minded. Been driving it around a fair bit lately and it started running rough. I checked the tuning guide on here and messed around with the fuel/mix and idle screws, made it worse lol

A guy at work told me to tighten the fuel mix all the way in and then screw it back three full rotations and the car is running much better.

HQ Delete Heater

Hi all. Just wondering if anyone has an HQ with the factory 'Delete Heater' C48 option and could describe which parts of the heater are actually deleted? Is it just the fan and heater core, or is it the box under the dash as well?

Also, does anyone have a photo of what the delete panel looks like so I can fabricate one up?

Thanks again.

squeaking front suspension

Hi,This maybe simple or a silly question,but i have a HQ with a HZ RTS chassis,the front suspension has started a squeaking noise from when the car starts to roll(not under load)to normal driving.Could this be a damaged shock? or the rubbers wearing to a point where they make the noise.The car has done approx 100k when it was done up.Thanks

HR Light Switch

Hey guys,

First off merry christmas, I hope you guys got all of the new carbs and whitewalls you asked for.

Down to business, I have had some headlight issues, namely that they flicker on an off while driving at night and have been under the dash all morning identifying a culprit which is a wire in poor condition.
