Plastic inner glove box liner

Does a GTS Monaro plastic inner glove box liner fit other HQ's? How many times is "inner glove box liner" mentioned in this listing? Closest wins. I get 9 times. Remember, it is "inner glove box liner".

And no it isn't mine......

Tyres for 13 inch stock EJ EH rims & fitting gaskets

My stock rims are now sandblasted, painted white, baked & ready for rubber.

Does anyone on this forum have tyres that are not 8 to 10 inches wide LOL !!
I'm a girl, I don't have "cannons" or "guns"

If you have 13 inch stock rims on youjr car - what tyres do you have - brand, size etc

I've searched this site and no joy except for the original ply tyre info.

NB: heaps of great info about gasket goo type stuff though as my ute is back from the spraybooth & ready for the the rubber kit to be installed.

Oil Pickups

Does anybody have an oil pickup to suit a 308 into a HZ in Victoria? Or anywhere really - I'll pay for postage.

Alternatively, does anyone know of any after market ones that would suit?

I have a blue commodore sump and pickup for swaps if anyone is interested in these.

Cheers,

Webber

VK HOLDEN RACE SHELL.

Can anyone help identify this VK Commodore i came accross recently.
It looks like it was an old race car.

The one tag reads
Model vk8vk19
Body no RACING UNIT
Trim 3038-64x
Paint 1J052-D
There is nothing written for the build date, eng , trans or axel.

Is there anyway of working out if it was a race car and if it was, its history?
Any help would be apprectiated, i do not have the car as yet, i came accross it in country NSW.
I live here in Melbourne and am planning on a trip back soon to retrieve it.

Thanks.

Hj lower ball joint

Hey guys

Have found movement in my passenger side lower ball joint. So I intend to replace it with a new one I have here before it bites the dirt.

The problem
I can not release the nut that holds the ball joint to the stub axle as it seems to be siezed onto the thread and spins the thread/ball around. I tried all the ways described in the pedia about wedging it so it cant spin but to no avail. If I cant manage to undo it, I will drill a series of small holes in the nut and bust it off with a chisel.

Borg Warner VK Rear Axle Oil Draining

I want to drain the Oil in the Borg Warner Rear Axle in my VK Six.

Is it simply a matter of removing one of the lower Cover Bolts or do I have to remove the entire Rear Cover and fit a new Gasket to do the job?

Any help appreciated.

Look for early Holden bits in Perth

Hi guys,

I recently sold my HZ Sean project as it got out of hand, too much for me.
I threw in all my spare bits as I wanted to see the car finished but now I have a new project and half the stuff I gave away I could use!!
So I was wondering if anyone had any of these bits in there she'd there willing to sell:

Hq-wb horn
Hq-wb windscreen washer motor and tubes to spray the windscreen
The windscreen demister ducting that has two vents joining down to one
Perhaps a Hk or early style wiper switch
And even a handbrake cable
