Rims for early Holden 4sale

Image: 

Hi Guy's....... Hope you all have a great New year's!!!!
If anyone on here is following a set of early Holden mags on eBay [http://cgi.ebay.com....|link]
Maybe these will take your fancy? They are BRAND NEW!!! CSA 13X7's that came with my EH Ute. I have put all commodore running gear/brakes etc in mine so have no need for these.
The set on eBay are at $305 and still has 3 days to go!!!
The off-sets are .... from the outside edge of the rim to the mounting surface 110mm, from the mounting surface to the inside of the rim 92mm.
The one in the pic above has NOT been polished!!!!! that's the way it came out of the box. These mags have NEVER had a tyre fitted and also come with BRAND NEW wheel nuts.
Will suit EH (have test fitted to a HR front end with disc's) and all the way back to FE? upto HG etc..... Get in before I put them on eBay.
I'm in QLD but bus freight is good to southern buyers, I'm asking $350 for them. Can get me at exlo8@bigpond.com
Again these are brand new, never fitted and have been in storage for OVER 16 year's!!! They have chrome centre caps but have poxy "Mr Wheel" logo......... A trip to your local tyre place or printer and you can have what ever sticker you want!!
I always offer my gear here first, my V6 kit for HQ-WB was offered here for around $300 and went on eBay for $490 + postage......... any takers for these rims???
Again get me at exlo8@bigpond.com
Cheer's

48-215 Extractors!!

Here's the finished job!!.
I posted a "starting off" about 4 weeks back, these were finished just before we knocked off for Christmas.
The exhaust bloke at work built em' for me....I was the bloke who held bits while he worked his magic.
Yes the 3" out-let is a tad to big for the old 132!!, this will be redused back, BUT first me thinks I'll fire it up with the stractors' only...just because I can!!

Streetneats tin hunt - 2006

Image: 

OK this is just a teaser- I have yet again come across a mother load of precious early Holden tin - ripe for the pickin'. I will be uploading some real nice stuff to my Roaming for wrecks album on streetneat.com.
Just give me a chance to get them posted up!
Oh BTW- the location is to be kept secret - if you do know of these cars - please keep your trap shut and respect the owners desire for these cars to remain anonymous. Some may be for sale later and I am eternally indebted to the owner for giving me permission to photograph these wonderful relics.
Any enquiries should be directed to myself via email - which you will get via my website- I will pass the request onto the owner and it will be up to them to decide if they want to sell.
Some of the cars I will be posting are already sold and I will point this out in the postings
Happy Hunting!
Cheers streetneat-Andrew.

G'day.... from Europe.

Image: 

Here's a bit of advertising OldHolden.com probably never thought it would get!!
The ute has been on the backburner for a little while I've been saving some cash to spend 2 months over here. I'm currently in London but went to Paris for the best part of a week not too long ago, and we're off to Rome soon.
I think it was 2 degrees when this pic was taken so the jacket went back on quick smart!
But I was just thinkin u guys would like the pics.
I get back to Oz on Australia Day and meanwhile I'm having a good time giving the Poms HEAPS about The Ashes!

Tramp Rods Fitted!

Gday
Finally pulled my finger out today and put some tramp rods on the HT.
Mine was a factory auto so it did not have them. Was a pretty simple job and they work very well! Since i dropped in the stroker the axle tramp was shocking... Not anymore!

308 Block ID

Hi all,
Can anyone confirm that this 308 block is a turbo pattern block please. The dowells are about 13mm and the distance between the two top bolts is about 180mm supposedly they are closer on a trimatic block and the dowells are smaller about 10mm. Am I right?
Cheers

Alternator mounting DMAX style HK HT Chev 307 327 w/pacemakers.

Well here it is, shes a daily driver and a bit grubby, damn chrome t/stat covers, and yeah i moved the wiring for the piccy. i tacked it at home with the gasless mig then drove it to work to weld fully.
good luck with it ya cant beat a nice Chevvy note, and this thing costs us bugger all to maintain. Stractor leaks are a bitch tho,
dunno what im doin' wrong.
