Bl**dy pensioners

My daughter's Golf.
A 68 year old woman in a three shades of green Yaris turned right from the left hand lane on a roundabout. She hit the Golf door, the wheel, bent the wheel arch and tore the bumper off.
She got out of her car screaming at Jess saying it was Jess's fault because she (the old lady) had her blinker on and Jess would have to pay for it. The woman behind Jess had stopped and told the old lady that it was her fault so she started screaming at her too. A copper stopped and she suddenly became a meek and mild old lady.

173 engine ID

I was given a red 173 motor today. I think it might be from an LJ Torana.
Engine number: CD 428759
Head part no: 7438296
Date code; middle of head on manifold side: J2 0
Number at back of head on manifold side: 6 H
Can anyone confirm what it is?
Supposed to be a YT head but has single valve springs and ports look stock.
If it's just a stock head I'll probably just pass the whole motor on if anyone needsa 173 for an LJ resto.
It has the sump on it.

WB Statesman Steering Wheel

I was going to have a go at tidying up the tired steering wheel of my WB Statesman. Its the single spoke type - similar to early SLE Commodore steering wheels (an example pic attached). The rim of the wheel has faded in places so I was going to repaint it. Unlike the older hard plastic wheels this wheel is a bit soft and spongy. Has anyone restored one of these wheels - any tips or recommendations - what to use- what not to use?
Thanks

HZ brake pedal

Hey all I have a auto brake pedal I removed from a 1978 HZ tonner. The parts im restoring. Question is the Clevis pin that holds the brake booster arm to the brake pedal doesn't fit. The hole in the brake pedal is larger than the Clevis pin. The Clevis pin is the same as the booster. Why is the hole in the brake pedal so big. Any help.

Diff shortening

Anyone got an idea of the approximate cost to get a rear end shortened?
We've scored a 3.45 limited slip rear end from an XR6 and I was kind of wondering how it would be in our EH.

Mildura Holden Museum

Went and visited the Mildura Holden Museum on the weekend.
Absolutely brilliant and a must for any Holden admirer visiting the Mildura area. It's a private collection, the passion of one man, plus a few other private vehicles on loan.
Most are restored to an immaculate standard, however a few are low mileage and very well preserved examples of their day.
The Museum is located at Buronga (NSW) just off the Sturt Highway before you cross the bridge over the Murray River into Mildura (Victoria).
