An mod from the old days...

Fitting a HG grille to a HD/HR. It was an easy fit.

I saw one in a magazine so I did it to my HD.

There wern't that many around...I guess less than around 6 that I saw so maybe people didn't like them.

Another old mod...

A HG grille and later H series tail lights in a HR ute.

You have to use a HD front pan to get the blinkers.

Factory 304 rocker arm ratio

Hi, just trying to find out what would be the best roller rocker arm ratio would be best for a mild 304. I guess I need to start with finding out what the standard rocker ratio is first, so if someone could guide me in the correct direction to find out I can then decide what to go for. having said all that 1.65 seems the most common for aftermarket rockers, any comments would be appreciated.
Thanks Mal

Aussie 4 speed question

Gearbox kit. I am fitting a kit to a m20 Aussie 4 speed. At the rear end of the input shaft, 15 old needle rollers came out. The book says fit 15 new ones. The kit came with an envelope marked "15", but contained 17 rollers. I find that 17 fit just nicely. Question to anyone who has actually done the job, how many should I fit?

Old EH Van In A Mag

Hi People

I know this is a long shot but im trying to find a copy of either Street Machine or Van wheels with my dads car in it for his birthday.
Its a Blue HR from VIC with statesman front end and was in the mag in about 83 or 84. Its bloody hard to find any details and i dont want to ask him because he misses the car so much and i dont want him to know why im looking for it. As i said its a long shot but you never know what you might find. Thanks in advance
