Reverse cowl scoop?

I understand the concept of a reverse cowl scoop but I am not sure this is the way the manufacturer intended this scoop to go.

HG engine identification - 253 or 308?

Hi all,

I'm lookin at a HG ute that I need some help identifying what the original engine was.

From the tags I've worked out it's a Kashmir White/Green interior V8 Kingswood. It's running currently running a 308 Trimatic and banjo diff (single wheeler). The current owner has said the engine had been replaced when he bought it however the Trimatic and diff are 100% factory original.

Is there any way to determine from the ID plates if it was 253 or 308 when it left the factory?.

Cheers - Neil

EH mouldings & clips

Hey,
Can anyone tell me if I have the clips fitted correctly.
Refer to the attached photos.
The spring loaded clips, not sure if it matters which way they go.
Could be upside down in the photo?
Also the flat type clips on each end, the screw goes through the panel from the inside into the clip?
The instruction sheet shows their locations, but no detail on assembly process.
Cheers.

Sad end for a Mustang

Yes; it's not a Holden and not his only vehicle but you have to feel for him. See https://www.nytimes.... "The car needed a jump-start, and its owner, Mike Hale, had no time to spare.

My Shed - gone?

Hi all,

It's been a while since I logged on here, and it seems my shed has been removed. I had a number of photos in there that I no longer have access to. Is there a way to revive my shed, or has it gone forever?

Cheers,
Matthew
