Hrhoogie

Retrosound Australia is where I got mine from & there are two models! The Hermosa that's the one I got & I paid $515 with a trade in of a HR radio blank I had spare. The other model is the Model Two & that's $635 it has a few extra features. Both models are subject to the availability of the factory fascia.

Small Salisbury gear change

Hi there, I've got a 'small salisbury' LSD, currently with 2.78 gears. Have a set of 3.55 crown and pinion gears - want to swap. Everything is apart on the bench and measurements look to be a straight swap.
Is this the case? Has anyone had any concerns with fitting such a different ratio?

Hi,
I'm chasing a pair of early build HQ Statesman front Bucket Seats (chrome hinge) to complete a restoration. Will consider all conditions as they will be re-trimmed, and happy to travel for them. I'm in central west NSW.

What does this bellhousing fit?

Guys
I found this in a mates shed. We don't know what box goes on it. Seems to have a pull type fork with pivot ball opposite the hole but no spot for a cable to be housed. It is Aussie engine side and is around 3cm shorter than Aussie. Casting looks exactly like factory on outside and doesn't have any brand names on it. Centre hole is exact same size as Aussie 4sp I have here. Ideas?

HG Station Wagon Leaf Spring on Diff measurements

Hi. Can someone please tell me the leaf spring centre to centre so I can weld some spring pad mounts on a bare diff. I don't have the car available (3.5hrs drive each way) and I need to get them done today. The dimensions I have on the current Banjo being 1535mm wide is:
Centre of diff to centre of leaf spring mount 517.5mm
Does this seem correct? Measure twice Weld once!
