Hello

Hello All!

Ive been away from the site for a while. Bought new digs and have been head down arse up for two years and finally getting back into restoring the HQ. Thought Id say hi to the good poeple on here. Car is back to metal and putting in every saturday restoing. Have found oringinal guards and single headlight nose cone so getting back to original. Just picked up a 454 to go in as well so will be wanting to pick a few brains down the track no doubt. Feeling enthused.

Noise from rear PCV on Hz 202

Hey guys i have recently fitted a HEI dizzy, extractors and just aftermarket air cleaner.

I have noticed that my PCV (i hope that's it,the rear most hose on the Hz tappet cover).

It makes a fair bit of noise when running, but once i take it out and put my finger on the end of it i feel the suction from and the noise stops. The noise is really noticeable under acceleration and when cruising not so much.

Rope or Neoprene

What are the pro and cons of fitting a neoprene rear main seal as opposed to the rope seal on red or blue six?
Has anyone used the Neoprene seal and had good results from it?

Cheers, Mick.

Removing trim on a HZ

I just got a large screw driver an popped this one off in about 20 seconds.always lift from the bottem not the top. I also didn't try sliding this one you can be a little bit rough an get away with it. But beware of metal clips as they will not let go an have to be unbolted this one didn't have any.

50 years on

So tomorrow will mark 50 years of registration of my lovely HD Clyde, so was old on Feb 28 1966 in Orange NSW by E C Cameron & Sons to St Mary's Collage in Bathurst.
Clyde was then purchase by a Mr V P Larkin in March 68 in Bathurst, Mr Larkin & his wife move to SYD somewhere around 10 or 12 years ago & they then sold Clyde to a another old fella called Cameron 5 years & purchase the HD off Cameron in May this year, he also had a 69 Pony & he sold the to find some cancer treatment.

What old cars do you see in your travels?

I do 750km a week in my school bus up and down the same bit of coast road (not the highway) near Port Macquarie and see one or two old or enthusiast cars every day.
This week I kept a list:
Monday;
55 Chev
Datsun 2000 - daily driver I see two or 3 times weekly
70s Kombi
HX Premier wagon - historic plates
Tuesday:
Late Camaro convertable
new Mustang
Wednesday
BMW 2002 - historic plates
28 Chev roadster - historic plates
Thursday:
70s Kombi - different car to Monday
Tesla Model S - I love this thing. It's driven like it's stolen sometimes. I've never seen a car accelerate like it and it's silent.
Friday:
FC ute
VK Commodore - modified on historic plates
