Pre-Filling Oil Filters

While this video (https://www.youtube.... ) about Cat Diesel oil and petrol filters, the principles are the same for the oil filters on our petrol driven vehicles and it does raise some interesting questions. If we are filling via the large spin on hole on filter we are filling at the outlet side and are probably doing very little in terms of priming the oil pump or oil lines.

Name this part?

Hi I'm a long time kingswood fan and just recently purchased my very first kingswood (1974 HQ) I'm just having a hard time figuring out what the name is of the corrugated metal strip that runs below the doors from the front wheel arch to the rear? Hoping someone can shed light on this for me so I can go about searching for a pair.
Cheers.

EH Front End Spacers

G'day all,
One of the spacers on my front end has rusted pretty badly. It's one of four that go through the subframe - the four subframe bolts run through each spacer to hold the front end on to the subframe. I've searched high and low for a replacement with no luck. Any ideas on where I can get a replacement? I was thinking that I could get one cut from some tube stock but they are a weird size...
Cheers,
Darren.

Who is pulling out their Old Holden for Australia Day?

My HT will get a run down to Scotts Head or Grassy Head this year to take the kids for a swim and a picnic. I WILL put my 60's mal on the roof racks and push the kids in on a few little waves.
No, I won't put those $2 chinese reject shop aussie flags all over the door jambs because a classic aussie Holden does not need overstating the obvious OR a "LOOK AT ME!, LOOK AT ME" try hard / wanker claim. (But that's just me and my thoughts guys.)

The things you see when you don't have a camera

1961 Chev Impala 4 door pillarless hardtop. This picture is from Mr Google.
I saw one of these on Sunday. It was in original unrestored condition apart from the mechanicals.
Australian delivered, built by Holden, factory right hand drive.
The owner said there was only eight built out here, 5 were Beliars and three were Impalas.
That would make his particular Impala a very rare car, maybe even the only one left.

Thoughts on best method for Sale for my Original HR Holden

I recently posted a request for advice of what I should do with my HR Holden that needs to be moved from where it has been stored for the last 20 years. I am the second owner. I just drove from the ACT to Lismore and back to get some quick photos. I am obviously looking to maximize it's sale value. But that currently is based on too many factors for me to be able to make a reasonable decision about, and I am a reasonable man. Having viewed it, it needs at least a clean. I am going to place some photos up on the vehicle and your advice would be appreciated.

Oldish Holden Rattly Noise

Hi Guys. Sorry not Old Holden but I'm trying to diagnose a tinny rattle in my sons VY Commodore. To me it sounds like a flex plate / torque converter bolt has come loose but it may be somewhat more sinister than that. I've checked the engine mounts and I don't think it's the cat's as I've put a stethoscope (wooden broom handle) to the bottom of the trans and it seems to be coming from there. Hope someone can help :-) I've uploaded a movie clip to listen to.

Here is a link if the upload doesn't work.
