Chasing Numbets

Hi all, I'm wondering if there is a way of chasing the history of a car by the chassis number?

I've purchased a HJ but unfortunately the is tags are all gone. The only identifying tags are the chassis and the engine number

Thanks!

Bench Seat Cover

Can anyone recommend a decent fitting cover for a HR front bench seat? With the hot weather starting I'm thinking of preserving the 50 year old vinyl and son's legs....

Further VP headlining..

Image: 

Well, I got it in guys, looks really good if I must say..
I scrimped a little on one side, so it's a little short. The pic will show it, but a damn sight better than what it was. From the interior light-back, it was completely hanging down, but held up with clothes pegs.
Thanks guys for your tips, 'specially Shanebo for his top-tips.

vc fuel gauge problem

I have a vc sl commy and the fuel gauge doesn't work. When I got it the wire coming from the tank wasn't connected to anything. Since that I've had a look at the back of the cluster and there was only a blue plug in the back, but 2 spots for plugs so I connected a plug to the black cable from the fuel tank and plugged it next to the blue one. Fuel gauge is still not working. Does it need to be grounded before plugging it in? or am I completely wrong with what I'm doing? Can't find any diagrams, so Any help would be greatly appreciated

34 ADM weber in 202 vacuum port help

Hi guys
Im in the process of installing a 34ADM weber on my 202 and am having issues with what actually connects to what with the vacuum lines.

It fires up and runs with revs, but doesn't want to idle and im guessing its coz I have vacuum ports not connected.

I have looked at the diagram in holdenpaedia but there is one vacuum port not labelled...I have circled it. What does it do or connect to? Do I need it?

Cheers
Jordan

Gone to pot

THE Holden plant at Elizabeth is proposed as the base for a medical cannabis industry that backers claim will be worth $800 million a year and create more than 2500 jobs.

But shareholders in the Australian Cannabis Corporation have blasted the State Government for being slow to react to meeting requests and failing to make regulatory changes the industry needs.

Australian Cannabis Corporation founder Ben Fitzsimons said South Australia “could become the next Colorado’’ if it moved first into the legal cannabis business.

Early Red Motors

An old motor mechanic recently told me that the first batch of the early "red" motors (149 and HP) were made in Canada before they were produced here in Australia!
Is this correct?

Cheers, Mick.

Is there a Doctor in the house?

Dr Shanebo, how's it look?
I pulled the rooflining from my VP to fix it. It was like every other Commonbore, it was falling down. Did some googling, gluing, looks OK eh? Hardest part is getting it in and out of the car..

Battery item

Great item on batteries and care of same however, author states in last paragraph why waste time on deep cycle batteries in your car?

I have a 1927 chev 6 volt and once restored on the advice of my old school auto electrician put a deep cycle in. Queried him re this as i previously only used deep cycle in my 4wd for the fridge.
which I had 8 years out each battery (2) over 16 years.

I put the battery in the chev in 2008 and replaced it in 2016.

4000 odd miles over that period and not lengthy runs apart from half a dozen out of 200.
