Blue or Black crank and rods

Is there any differences between blue and black motor cranks and rods?
apart from the locator pin on the end of the black crank. I'm getting a vc blue motor rebuilt as I have the black crank and rods on the floor was wondering if their any better they look the same.

Wheely happy!

Got 'em! Been years, but I've finally been in the 'right place, right time' to snag a full set of the right sort of Tasman wheels. These will be rebuilt into chromed drop centre 15" outer bands.

These Tasmans might not be to everyone's taste, but I did see a couple of sets that could be popular with other OldHoldeners. I saw good sets of old Holden spec 14x8 Hotwires and Splats. They're wider and seem to be in better nick than the wheels I've picked up, and so they might end up going for a much higher price.

HTH!

HK'ing.

Brother's HT ute on the home straight!

My brother's HT ute which came to me for "a little bit of rust near the spring hanger" is on the home straight towards the finish line. Footwells, half the rear ute tub, subframe legs and saddle mounts, sills, scuttle panel and windscreen frame were all extensively rust repaired with the might Henrob torch, rebuild front end, rebuild gearbox, rebuild steering box, rebuild steering column, rebuild alternator, rebuild fuel pump, rebuild dissy, gasket kit through the 161, paint and detail the 161, paint engine bay, paint the dash and put a new screen in............I think that's it.

replacing speedo needle?

Hiya, I need to replace the speedo needle on my HK, has anyone done this before? I'm thinking that it would be fairly straight forward but don't want to start the job and mess it up. Thanks.

Torana Van??

Alright...one for the brains-trust...
Bloke at work is picking up 3 HB Torana, says one is a Van!?
I've asked for picks (of course)
He recons only 4 were made........yeah, yeah we have ALL heard this before.
So....what do you lot think, my thoughts are with a Coach-builder form back in the day doing the deed. Bit like the Fraud Zepher station wagons (they never came from the factory). A coachbuilder knocked out 100 or so.

Courier Recommendations?

I might be about to buy a nice set of rims, but they're in Sydney - and I'm not! I'm not likely to drive down there before the end of the school year either.

Can any of you lads/lasses recommend a courier that could get these old gems up to Sth East Qld - Ipswich to be specific?

I'll pay you direct, or throw some site maintenance quid Rusty's way, if there's an easier way to do it too.... ! :-)

Ta All!

HK'ing.

Car Identification help wanted

Hi all , I'm a new member with a recently purchases HR, and not very familiar with HR's
Can I determine what exact model car and engine I have please ?

The ID plate in the engine bay in front of the driver's seat reads "Body HR225-12976-A"........The Body stamp to the right of the ID plate reads "A070322", ....The only engine No. I can find is stamped "M 90177"(near the distributor), and stamped on the block near the exhaust in large print is "HP"

The current rego papers say the engine no. should be "161R157926", but , of course the engine may have been changed without the rego people being advised.

HG chassis mod

Hey guys
Interested to know If anyone has modified chassis on hg?
Tubbed? New tunnel?
Not doing anything just research atm. Would like to know what's involved with getting hg onto the deck.
I'm assuming a lot of work relocating shocks, moving fuel tank etc.
If anyone can provide a run down of what's involved would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers
