How do I search this site?

I use various internet sites, and as a pretty incompetent computer operator , I get by...........just.

This is not meant to be critical, or negative, but I have to declare that I have the most difficulty with this Old Holden site, which I hasten to add, I confess must be due to my young age of 67, or some other of my shortcomings, ; lets face it, a huge number of other people contribute here, so they must be miles smarter than me.

Help please.

I have just posted a question here re fitting commodore brakes, the full system, to a HG van.

Can I fit a commodore brake system to a HG?

Nearly time to actually do something about brakes, to replace the 4 wheel drums.

I have looked at the cost of rebuilt boosters and calipers. Not cheap, but if it has to be, it has to be.

Before I spend up , can you give me some thoughts on the possibility of using all commodore braking.

I reckon that I could buy a whole commodore, and fit the rear end, complete with discs, to my HG van.
I also think that I could adapt a commodore booster and master cylinder to my firewall.
I read that commodore front wheel bearings will fit HG stubs. Is the distance between the inner and outer bearings the same?
That just leaves a question about calipers. Is any adaptor plate available, or feaseable, to mount commodore calipers to HG stubs, either drum stubs, or disc stubs?

NSW logbook folder

I got an A5 clipboard/folder for the log books for the Bluebird and EH.
The NSW logbook is an A4 bit of paper. It is designed to be folded down the centre line and it fits perfectly in this. The log book is then open and ready to write in and the folder is firm enough to write on.
The clear sleeve will hold the Certificate of Operation as well.
Everything is together and protected in the folder.
They are under $4.00 from place like Officeworks.

Hr and friends

Henry the HR out with some of his older (HD) and younger (VL) friends.

For the VL lovers - that car has done 5000 original km's and still has new car smell.

air bags

Been offered a vs v8 ute, but it does not have air bag.
Did the commercials not come with air bags?
How difficult would it be to fit air bags considering only have to fit to front?

thanks
