Hi Tim, here's a heap of pics of Ferris radio stuff. I don't expect you to use everything, but just use what you want or need. But you're welcome to use the lot.
I have a couple more pics of aftermarket stuff, I'll put them in another thread maybe tomorrow. This is enough for now, I'm sure..

(Apologies Rusty, if I've used up all my credit)

Detailing Turbo's pt2

Carrying on from the last turbo post, I have some other photo's, these are not from the same engine, they are only 300hp, these are brand new 1100hp V8 Scania marine diesel engines, they come to us, plain and boring, we fit the gearboxes and then repaint and detail the engines before sending them to the boat builder. Hope you enjoy the pictures.
Cheers,
Dave

What carbie

Hi all OH fans, I'm about to put a 355 stroker together for a WB 1 Tonner project and was wondering what Carburetor people might think as the best option. I already have a 355 in my Torana and it has a Q-Jet and I'm more than happy with the way it goes but it's a mongrel to start after a few days without use. I've over hauled that carbie, resealed the plugs in the float bowl, fitted a one way valve in the fuel hose but it still looses fuel after a couple of days. So I was thinking of going down another path with this one. I would like to go spread bore with a similar CFM as the Q-Jet.

Hey Al..!!

I got pics of our mate George. And get this... He's wearing your T-shirt! These are my kids with old mate..
The pics are really small, I can send them to you via email and you can try to make them big (just for curiosity sake)? I have more pics, and of the whole surfin' crew. I think the files or whatever may be different these days, dunno.
Can anyone in oldholden-land help make pics bigger please?

Detailing Turbo's

I know it's not really related to old holdens, but a mate is doing some work on a customers boat engines and the owner wanted the turbo's overhauled and blinged up while the engine repairs were being done.So he asked to me bling them up when I was rebuilding them. The first 2 pictures show how they were, and the next show how they came up. I think the owner should be happy.
Cheers,
Dave

HZ Statesman lower grille

Hi Guys,
I am new to this site and thought i would post a question if anyone can help......
I have a 79 HZ Statesman that I am nearly finished restoring and i am looking for the lower grille. I know these are very rare to find which is why i posted my question here.
Can anyone help me find a HZ Statesman lower grille either in good condition or re-manufactured?
I have been told someone on facebook re-manufactures and repairs them ........ but trying to find the person will take time.......
If someone can help it would be highly appreciated.
Cheers

48-215 starts but dies after 3-5 seconds

Hi,

Have not had my 48-215 out in a while - 4-5 years :-(

When I try to start it fires up well revs high for 3-5 seconds and then stops.

Seems to me it is not getting enough fuel. Could this be fuel pump problem? Carburetor float problem or jet blocked?

I don't think it is on the ignition system side as it turns over strongly and does start and when it is running seems to be firing on all cylinders.

Any assistance greatly appreciated.

Yellow washer bottle?

Thought would throw it out there. Expansion tank and washer bottle has gone yellow with age. Wondering if they can be restored, look something like they did when new. Thanks.

Subframe damage

Hi guys after replacing tyres so i can drive my ute i noticed some subframe damage and was wondering how to fix it. 1 part of damage is where the sway bar is secured to the subframe. That area has rusted out and so the sway bar cannot be secured. The rust hole is only large enough to allow the sway bar attaching tab to rotate freely in the hole. Sorry no pics of that. The other damage is to the engine cross member which i have pictures of to help identify the problem. Im looking for repair options as i have set up everything already on this subframe. Ideas pleas. Thank you.
