Introduction,And a favour to ask.

G'day all, Bernie's my name.I've been a Holden tragic for many years and really like this site.It's entertaining,interesting and a great resource for info!

At present I'm breathing new life into a Hj Kinga.It's all going well,but I need a favour.I'm converting it back to 3 speed manual,column change, but am having trouble finding the correct linkage rods to suit the HJ.I would love a photo, or a workshop diagram of the shape they are.In particular the bend on the 2nd 3rd rod ,so it doesn't foul on the clutch fork? where it connects to the gearbox linkage?

HK Panno - donor car or quarters needed

Hey all,

Anyone got an old rusted ute or panno with some decent quarters they'd like to sell, please?

Driver's side is worse, wheel arch is cactus and there'll need to be some serious welding done.

I'm in eastern burbs of melbourne, but I'll travel or pay freight.

Send pics to 0409 932 913 or answer on here.

Fingers crossed,

James

HZ Sedan Instrument Upgrade

Hey guys,

I've done the old VN V8/T700 conversion into an HZ Sedan and wanted to upgrade the instrument cluster. I was either going to go slightly better and put in the GTS fascia and cluster, or commit and fork out to have someone decent wire up some modern gauges and do a custom fascia.

Just for Emu

Emu,
Just to prove that it did happen here is the best photo I could get with the lighting I had. Got a pretty decent shine coming off it and is smooth as glass. As my mate said (doesn't even feel like a car) lol.
Got that quarter in colour and clear aswell

Cheers
James

Engine Resurrection

The first of a series of videos showing some useful Engine Resurrection tips ... http://www.youtube.c...

The videos show leaking Valve checks, how to clean out the Inlet and Exhaust Manifolds without taking the Engine apart, Hydraulic Lifter adjustment and check,
Compression Testing etc.

On this one you see classic weak Ignition when he opens the Throttle ... http://www.youtube.c...

That's because his Dwell Meter is not reading correctly.
You will also see him spray Water down the Carb, as I've often recommended, to bring up the Compression.

I don't agree with his Oil Treatment. I don't advocate anything that encourages lumps of sludge to become dislodged.
