HK Monaro Vinyl Roof

Hey all,

My HK GTS is currently in a panel shop and within the next few months it will be ready to start prepping for paint. I'm undecided as to what to do with the original vinyl roof.

Its Picardy red with a black vinyl roof. It has grown on me and I understand its a rare combo but Id honestly prefer the coupe without it.

What do you guys think? And, what would it be worth, with all chrome trims, all in excellent condition?

Matt

HQ axles

Hi all,

Does anyone know whether HQ banjo syle axles would fit into a Torana banjo differential apart from the length, or bearing / seal diameter / backing plate fitment.

The reason for the question is, could HQ axles be shortened and then resplined to suit the Torana differential housing, which would enable fitting of HQ style wheels /brakes without major modifications like 9" diffs.

Possibly am I on the wrong track,and got my hand on it.

Positive and negative comments welcomed.

Thanks

gear knob

Can any tell me if aussie 4 speed shifters had more than one thread for the knob?
I have just put a less-sloppy shifter on and the knob wont go on.
appears to be a standard shifter, appart from the sloppyness it looks the same at the business end as my other two shifters.

or am I just being a bit of a knob?

Diff. ratios

Good day, OH’ers.
I would like to waffle on for a short while, about my experiences with various diff ratios on my HJ ute. She has a 253 with (maybe) a slightly modified cam shaft, a Quadrajet carb and an HEI distributor, with a Supra 5 speed gearbox; all else as from the factory.
Some years ago, I got hold of a 2.60 ratio Salisbury diff., which I fitted to the ute. Performance of the car was just so-so. Acceleration was slow, the vacuum gauge gave a reading of about 10” Hg when cruising at 100 km/hr and rpm of about 1900, according to the tacho. Fuel economy about 20 mpg.
Originally, she had a 2.78 ratio diff. with an auto transmission. I changed the auto for the Supra but that didn’t make any obvious difference to anything, anywhere.

HR Prem Bucket Seats

are HR prem bucket seats / rear sear complete with ashtrays regarded as 'rare' and worth alot? I have a set in my HR wagon I'm restoring and was about to trade for a front bench seat although a mate said no way don't do it because they're worth a fortune and I'm better off buying a bench from a wreckers rather then clean trade??

Trolley 2

Image: 

Got more done on the trolley, can confirm my welding is still pretty 'how ya goin' (although I would like to blame the $50 Welder for a lot of it).

I went to the local tip shop yesterday and bought some old hand rails that had a decent wall thickness, and have zapped them to the base. Here is is 1/2 assembed.

I am going to need serious wheels to move this thing.

cluster gear

Quick question
I am putting together an Aussie 4 speed
My cluster gear is a little worn on the inside, the needle rollers have gone through the case hardening
There is no pitting, nor even a lip but the dull grey of the case hardening is worn away and there are signs of wear
The teeth on the cogs are very good
A new cluster will cost me $390
My question - is there any load on the cluster in fourth gear? It is revolving, yes, but is it under load?

rusty boot repair

Hi, i am fixing a rusty boot in a gemini.

someone has previously put a tar sheet over it, and its lifted off because of the rust.

theres no rust holes, just a lot of scale and deep pitting and the sheetmetal is thin in some places.

Where can i get a sheet of tar / asphalt?

im just going to do the same as before but i will treat the rust first and tar paint it to make sure its sealed.

thanks
