Ej Holden jumps out of 3rd gear after clutch overhaul

I know from what I have read EJ's with crashbox are a bit prone to jumping out of 3rd gear from time to time, but it only uses to be when on a long run and then coasting downhill.

Keroed & polished

Looooong overdue. Came up Ok but far from perfect. Many thanks for the tips Al & DDD! I'll start on the interior next week. Thankfully the interior is close to perfect but cleaning the front carpet will be interesting. Any tips DDD on cleaning carpets without pilling and fraying the fibres? My carpets are the modern repros.
Thanks,
Alby

Early 6cyl timing gear dimensions

Model selection not applicable.
Im looking at using the timing gears on a non Holden application. Can some one give accurate dimensions:
each ID and distance between centers.

Thanks,
Mike

Kero & paint

Hey guys, When I was young, a panel beater friend said to use a few cupfulls of kero with water rather than soapy carwash. He said the kero would keep the paint in good condition, help rejuvenate poor paint and have the added benefit of preventing rust around stainless trips / clips. (Of course this is relating to older cars). He reckoned that newer car washes contributed to rust problems.
Ive used it, but not regularly. has anyone else used it or know about it?
Im going to try it today on the HT which has pretty poor paint ATM and then polish it.
