Help with family truckster - not so old...

Hey all,

VZ SS Wagon that's got loose trim around the driver's seat - a little piece that's broken off (looks like teeth) so the trim is loose.

Question please - how do I remove the reclining adjusting knob?

Thanks all

Friday Night Red Pig

This was the original AMG Mercedes in 1968.
It won it's class and second outright at it first outing at Spa. It won many other races over the next twelve months. It scared everything else that much that the rules were changed so it couldn't compete.
It weighed two ton, it was fast, it chewed tyres at an alarming rate, it was automatic and had air bag suspension. The drivers called it the Red Pig, little wonder.
When it was regulated out of motorsport Matra ( French Aerospace) bought it, stretched it 75cm and used it test jet aircraft landing gear. Why? It was the only thing on the planet that could carry the weight, accelerate to speed required in the space available, and stop in what was left.

club plates

If the police are doing roadworthies and you have club plates, what happens????
I know your car has to be roadworthy to get club plates, but its up to the club to say weather it is road worthy, so if they defect you what happens????

Hi guys,

Does anyone know if any of the head bolts on a black 202 penetrate water jackets?? (ie special thread sealant required).

Thanks,

Northern Winter coming....

Seems like it's on again: the LPG market seasonal swap.

Nearby servo wasn't the cheapest, at 66.9c/l.
Drove past early this week, to find it at 75.9c/l...!
Am currently filling nearly daily, at the only servo I can find still under the 65c mark. I just hope that they don't have a shocker of a northern Winter, which forces up fuel demands and leaves us with 90c/l prices through part of our Summer.

HK'ing - miser.

HK-T-G fan heater duct wanted

Folks, I'm chasing the under-dash duct that mates up with the heater box at the firewall and directs heat to the demister vents or the cabin interior. I'm not clear on whether there are any cables or flaps that are within the duct body, but if there are I'd want them too.

What's out there?

Cheers, Matt

Lowering EH

Hi All - a bit of a burst of activity on here from me as I've finally had a few days off to work on the car :)

I have to replace the shackle and eye bushes on the EH so thought I'd look at lowering it while the springs are off.

My question is if I drop it 30-38mm will I also need new lowered shocks?

I'm looking at something like this http://www.ebay.com....

Heads up for anyone on OLDHOLDEN that owns one.

ITALIAN sports car maker Lamborghini is recalling some Gallardo models because power steering fluid can leak and catch fire.

The recall affects about 1500 Gallardo Coupe and Spyder autos, from model years 2004 to 2006.

Lamborghini says in documents sent to US safety regulators that pipes can corrode near the power steering pump. In rare cases, fluid can leak onto the hot engine and cause a fire.

The company says it discovered the problem in product monitoring and testing.

No fires or injuries have been reported.
