What carby?

Which carby should I run?

Was thinking 4X 34ADM Webbers and HEI from a Blue 253.

Any other ideas? Maybe BBQ gas?

Showheels streeters. Cant decide whether to get a set or keep the originals.

I have been thinking about purchasing a set of the showheels streeters in 17x7 or 18x7 in either the grey or the chrome. Has anyone bought a set of these wheels and if so what do they think? Also what are your opinions on putting a set of wheels like that on an old HG? Make the steering much heavier? Pro's and Cons? Thanks

Diff ID - Part 2

Hey guys. I am posting some more pictures to try and identify my diff. See original post here - http://oldholden.com...

I have pulled the RH brake drum off. The drum still has the original stud pattern, as well as the re-drilled HT pattern. The pattern appears to be 5 x 4 1/2", with approximately 15mm holes, suggesting that the brakes at least are ford items. The drums measure approximately 253mm inside diameter. The axle has 913 cast into it. Is there any way to determine what the diff actually is?

Cheers

Dave

look what o'brians did

Image: 

well i got my windscreen out and found no rust!! i was really happy about that but during the removal the bloke scraped up my surround, he put some type of paint on the scratches that went through to the metal but seriously!

now the windscreen is in its got the black border around so you cant see it but looking back maybe i should get them to fix it properly?

why is it so hard to get someone that will take care with OH's?

Diff ID

Hey Guys.

I am trying to ID the diff in my HG prem. I was told by the previous owner that it was out of a VN. However, It has drum brakes on it which makes me think it is not from a VN. Is it possible to tell from the attached pics what diff it is? It is definitely limited slip. It has a metal tag stating it is a 'slip resistant diff', and the wheels will only turn together. The numbers stamped into the rear left side of the diff appear to be 990828, although the last digit could be something else.

Any help in identifying the diff would be much appreciated.

Dogs dinner

I'm in trouble again :-( Dog ate the plug on Pam's laminator.

I can wire on a new one but my memory is scary so i'll double check with you lot first.

There's a blue wire and a brown wire and i believe they can go either way (obviously not using the earth pin), YES ?? or How ?

bloody towbar

G day all,
Well... Picture says a thousands words. Woman reverse into me and this is the aftermath... She was insured but here insurance will only cover the market value of the car. Ive 15g's on her. Aami just want to right it off. But i dont want that. I want it fix. I was quoted 5g 's to get her fixed! I think it can be done cheaper. Anyone got contacts around south easter suburbs? Victoria.
Cheers
