she broke down.......

she broke down today..... I am not exactly sure what is going on just yet. Initial checks of the module, cap, rotor and coil checked out ok, just incase something was overlooked a new module and coil was fitted(leads/plugs are new), it is strange because the motor does fire briefly before continuing to crank over, then will fire again for a very short moment before cranking over again. I am of the opinion that it is in the ignition system because even if the fuel line was blocked off and a cap full of fuel was poured down the carb(ie run out of fuel scenario) The engine should fire for more than 1 second, i suppose the other scenario is that i could of stripped a tooth or two off the distributor OR the distributor has moved....suggestions anyone?

HQ GTS/4

All original except auto and lowered springs. She is a genuine GTS sedan with paperwork to prove it including buildsheet. After much negotiation I purchased the car in early 2003 at the tender age of 18 - Currently awaiting restoration sometime in the next 10 years hopefully :-)

Not quite an old holden...

Gday all, just thought i would share a pic of my new work hack/shooting rig/tiphauler and general runabout. It needs a bit of work but hopefully i can sort it out pretty soon as the 80 series has gotta go!

Its a 1984 4x4 J-10 jeep and i got it for a song. fyi CJ-10s were usually 2 wheel drive aircraft haulers in the states.

Whats this got to do with old holden you ask? The previous owner swapped in a good ol' holden red v8 of 253 flavour! Im not normally an advocate of non AMC engines in jeeps but i can make an exception for the old red! =)

So far i have pulled the original engine (it was proppa knacked!) and sorted out my good 253 with a new clutch, i also swapped the sump and pick up over! Gave the new engine a rattlecan rebuild as well. Had new tinted glass installed in the windscreen, the one you see has actually de-laminated. Ive also ordered 2 litres of Landcruiser white acrylic to give the beast a paint job.

Anyway, cheers for the attention ill keep you posted.

It is Registered!!!

18 months and many swear words later, the coupe is finally registered, The maiden voyage went well, with the only problem being a collapsed uni joint (long story, don't think i should of punched the gas peddle through the roundabout so much) still alot of tuning and fiddling to do but very driveable, very loud and very smooth out on the open road.......guess what i am doing this week-end>?????
thank you everyone for all the support with the car over the last 18-19-20mnths, It has been a very hard road to go down rebuilding a car and only those that have gone through the [Naughty Pottyword] to climb out and find another mountain of [Naughty Pottyword] know exactly what i mean, a big thanks to Macca (MrHQGts' very good mate) for doing ALOT of unpaid work on the car and having to put up with me bitchin at him constantly about how things were to be done, a big thanks to Mr Neat whom i have had many discussions about the car with through out the entire build and for allowing me to vent my frustrations with things that were just not RIGHT!!, Thanks to rusty-john for the site(OldHolden) and the Monaro Car Club of N.S.W (you guys really kept me going), To Danielle (MrsHQGts) for putting up with all the bull[Naughty Pottyword] and car parts for the last 18-20mnths (she saw it all) without you none of this would be possible...
For those that i have missed, rest assured i am eternally grateful for all the help and support i have received from you all during the build.
Brendan

The joys of apartment living.

The missus and I lost the Pintara. So we had to take Barry out of his warm, cosy, SAFE, home at the workshop. To become a daily driver.
As we live in an apartment. It is an on street parking situation.
It doesn't take a rocket surgeon to guess what happened.
Thankfully the assailant came clean and is covered by insurance.
Cheers.

New project

Image: 

Got this for a bargan today for $150, pretty much new and next to nill play in the shaft even came with a new boost guage. Some blokes in used cars at work wanted to sell it as they had no use for it (was a spare for one of the cars)
It'll go on my VK calias I just got (yea I'm taking out the 308 to put a RB30 in it)

John H's fuel-leaky HG...

Image: 

Hi John H.
Like I said a couple days ago, I had the same drama: tank vent pipe leaking fuel due to cornering and expansion/pressure.

I pulled the steel pipe from the rubber fitting at the exit point on upper side of the tank's filler pipe, just behind neck on qtr panel.
Then I simply fitted a small section of rubber fuel hose and clamped on a generic plastic fuel filter.
1. Air from tank, under increasing pressure from heat, can still escape.
2. Any sloshing fuel that rises up toward filler neck has to rise vertically to escape, and then if exiting hose into filter, can easily drop back into filler pipe and tank. This way it doesn't flow down vent pipe to douse the diff and spill on road.

I haven't had any petrol enter the filter as yet. Without a proper parcel shelf I do get some fumes if tank is full and fuel sloshes up the filler. That will be fixed this week as a new parcel shelf and speakers will be sealed in.

Hope that 'el cheapo' solution works for you too.

HKing of Bris-vale.
