Who's no.1?

I saw a car on the weekend on the Mornington Peninsula that had the number plate 1. That's it... just 1.

Who owns it (I'm assuming somebody well known or famous?), and what the hell would that be worth?

CAMSHAFT ADVICE

Looking at getting a dynotec cam for my HX red 202, im getting parts now but it will have - yella terra 9 port head, 34 adm weber, extractors, HEI dizzy and 2" exhaust.

Cant decide which cam to get, want something decent but not too over the top as this car is my daily driver and is a 3 speed column shift. Also dont want to change the diff at this stage. Would go crow cam but they are a bit too expensive for my budget.

Which out of these 3 would you guys recommend -

Open space?

Hi All

Anyone in Vic (Werribee to Geelong) have (or know of someone who has) a corner of a paddock or similar I could use to teach my son to drive? He's way to young to be on public roads but he's car mad and wants to get into motorkhanas - you only have to be 12 years old to get your low speed CAMS license.

There's a few places/clubs around that run the events, which we'll join, but no-one seems to allow any activity beyond competing - ie they don't just open the gates for practicing etc due to insurance issues. There's not much point showing up to compete and having him bunny hopping all over the place!

I'd obviously sign any waiver's required, would not damage fences etc and am happy to pay a small fee each time if required.

My transplanted 186.

Here it is finally bolted in. The guy I bought it off painted it. Not the original colours but still looks smart.

Just have to finish hooking it all up.

HJ column shift indicator (broken)

Hi guys

Ive got a '75 HJ 1- tonner currently under a full restoration; I have recently discovered a small? issue with the column shift indicator. This is the small panel that resides under the speedo, and the small needle that indicates 1, 2, D, N, R, P. The needle refuses to move when I select gears, and after pulling the assembly apart it was discovered that the paper-thin wire that moves the needle was broken.

Can anyone tell me if this wire is replaceable? Or repairable? Any help on this would be fantastic.
Cheers

HZ odometer out

Hi,all....
I recently changed diff ratio in my HZ from 2.78 to 3.08.
As a 202,the 2.78 was a tad sluggish off the mark,but cruised nicely.But the speedo was way out(43km/h on the speedo,instead of 50km/h in reality,when comparison driven behind other cars.The coloured toothed gears available did not quite cover my setup)
Now it is much closer with the 3.08...48 on the speedo instead of 50 in reality....close enough,I`m happy with that.
But my problem is,with either diff ratio,the odometer is wrong.A round trip to work and back to home is exactly 70km...but both diff ratios will say 82km.
I thought logically,that if the 3.08 is (nearly) correct speedwise,then the odo would be more correct,but still is as identically as wrong as the 2.78.
