Gearbox experts needed

Where are the real gearbox builders? Some months ago I put a kit into my Aussie 4 speed, and noted that the old front bearing had a seal on the side facing into the box, and no seal on the side facing the bearing retainer. This seemed wrong to me, but as I am not a mechanic, I sought advice on this forum, and received a range of conflicting opinions. In frustration I installed the new front bearing (which came with seals on both sides) in the same manner as the old bearing that I had removed.

HJ VAN Rust Repair Panels.

Anyone know a local business, or decent panelbeater around Northen NSW to Brisbane, who supplies rust panels for a HJ van.. or simply someone who loves the early models and could help?

Trying to steer clear of Rares of K/Country.

Some guys simply don't make beaver panels and floor pans.

Tried Craig Vayne and Ray Taylor.
Willing to go to Craig for Sills, Rear 1/4 and tailgate.

Any more leads...

If necessary i'll go rares for the beaver but @300+ bucks it'd want to be good.

Any help,

Cheers,
Drew.

IFS for Holden HR

Thinking about bringing my HR into the 20th Century. I have been looking at all the different bolt in IFS front ends. They ain't cheap! Has anyone done this upgrade and who's unit did you use? The web sites just show pics & of course theirs is the best. Plus racks mounted front or back. Does anyone have any real experience to save me from the pitfalls. Cheers in advance.
