have to drill out holes etc. Also with the bar which runs on the roller, (Which holds the door open) mine has some wear am planning on hard facing
these to prevent future wear. Is there anywhere that I can get a template of non warn ones so I can rebuild mine. I have supplied pics of all. My aim

Attention MYEH Holden re Led Headlights

Hello My EH,
I have seen the photos you added with the J W Speaker Led headlights. My question to you is how good are they compared to HID lights or new car lights.
I would consider looking at these if they work and supply a outstanding light beam.I am looking at upgrading mine to 75w 6000k HID H4 in new semi sealed
casings. but if these can supply a good light source could be an option.

Unknown 308 Engine Number

Ok, so I ended up getting the 308 (http://oldholden.com...). It ended up being an HQ block I believe. Can someone tell me more bout the engine number? I can't find much with an internet search. It is dated 28D74 (assume 28/4/1974?) and the engine number is 11Q12487** closest I can find on the net is a statesman block but they're 11QT.... I have definitely read the number correctly the 1 is not a T. Any ideas?

Trimatic / 186 flex plate

I have just put in a new flexplate (the right way round)and bolted the engine and trans together (with the shim plate/spacer) and now I have this strange noise coming from that area, like it is hitting something, but just slightly. I thought it may be hitting on the gear on the starter, so I changed the starter for another, still the sound is there.

any landrover lovers here?

A friend wants me to advertise 3 of his land-rovers..
I think there all series 2

he said 2 have Holden 186 motors and the 3rd has a xflow ford.
apparently 1 has a rebuilt motor, and every rivet in the aluminum body has been replaced, interior re-upholstered etc

Story is, he has them stored at a friends barn, and now the friend is selling the property so he has to move them, he dosnt really have the room at home. he also has 3 army trailers but im not sure if there for sale

I forget to ask about prices etc, but his here most days

S.A.T. Pics

Only one in my collection worth showing, have had one or two others that I slapped together to thrash around on when I was younger and have one that I'm doing long term in the shed. This one now is hanging up on the wall and rarely gets ridden love it to pieces though and probably spent a bit more on it than I should have but oh well, just wish I had the T bar shifter and hub :(
