Bathurst 1946

This is the NSW Gran Prix at Bathurst in 1946: https://www.youtube....
It was the first race there since WW2.
Frank Kleinig was there in his red Hudson Special (The 100mph Car) and Gelignight Jack Murray raced his Mackellar Special ( Bugatti Type 37A with a supercharged Ford sidevalve V8)
They were both timed at 110MPH over the quarter mile on Conrod. No seatbelts, no safety barriers, people standing on the side of Conrod straight.

What's Missing Here?

I have had a look on Holdenpedia, and noticed with the clock info that there is a plastic fitting on the side of the clocks that I assume the power feed and maybe ground connect to in order to feed current to the clock. This clock, out of a WB Caprice dash, doesn't seem to have one. It never worked in the car when I pulled it out. Can anyone enlighten me, and suggest where I may get it repaired? I am located in Melbourne. Cheers.

Are these ignition coils any good?

Hi fellas,

I've tested these coils (see picture) with a multimeter as described in the instruction booklet that came with the meter.

Temperature at the time was 28 ยฐC. The resistance in the test leads was 0.2 Ohms.

The coils are as follows:

1. Bosch SU12R - was fitted to a 253 engine.

2. Bosch GT40R - was fitted to a 350 engine.

Both are now shelf items, but being the tight ass that I am, I don't want to discard items that might still be useful one day.
