Supra W58 into EH

I am currently in the process of fitting a W58 5 speed Supra box into my EH sedan with 202 red. I am after a slip yoke for the gearbox end of the tailshaft. I have seen on the internet (Dellows) that there are a couple of different types for holdens one is for V8/V6/6 cyl red 1 tonner and the other for holden 6 red/blue/black etc. I am a little confused as I have the V8 one and it fits into the box and onto tailshaft no problem. Can anybody tell what the difference is between the two types and can I use the V8 one ??

Thanks

EH radio antenna connector

Hi people.

On the original aerials for EH and probably others around that era, the base has a connection for a threaded screw on connector, a bit like the PL259 connector used on CB radios, but a bit smaller.

The aerial wire has that connector to connect to the base of the aerial mast and the usual push in plug for the radio end.

Does anyone know where I can get those connectors, or what they're called..?

I tried JayCar and a number of other places online but no luck.

Hq Holden glass

Can door glasses be polished to get all the scratches out or is it just best to buy new ones I am not sure how good the new ones are I think they're Chinese.

Hg and hq tie Rod ends.

Hi guys, I fitted a new set of tie rods and tie Rod ends (from resto country) to a late model hg recently and seem to be having an issue with the tie rod ends not tightening into the steering arms. The taper on the tie rod ends doesn't seem big enough for that in the steering arms and as a result when you tighten up the nut on the tie rod ends, it runs out of thread and the nut bottoms out before the tie rod is actually a tight fit in the joint. Seems worse on one side that the other. Bought another tie rod end from another supplier to see if any difference and nope, exactly the same.

She flies, haha.....

I was sent a speedo converter by one MR Ambo,
& that's the Dirty D doing 110kphs & not 110mpls, haha....
For those playing at home the co, pilot is holding the phone.
But on a serious note I had spent bit of time to make sure that the speedo was to being close to right with the big 15" tyres & as it the turns out it's spot on with the GPS test.
