colour matching paint??????

Hay all, got some questions about colour matching.

I have a few bits in the paint work that aren't quite right and i don't reeeeally have have money to repaint the whole thing. IN a hole the pain isn't to bad other than a bit of rust in the guards and a bit in the drivers door. The paint looks alot like Linna Mint but its not. IM worried that if i get some "matched" paint it wont be right and it will look like crap.

Lucas generator regulator dates and codes for T

T

These pics are from the Lucas generator regulator.

Other than being dated is there anything on these that are worthwhile putting in pedia????

The 12 volt or the 25 amp will both of these work in my car ?

Gday people

I have just replaced the loom in the EJ. I have gone by the book in terms of hooking up the wiring.
The loom I just put in was a good one I pulled out of another EJ.
The problem I am having is when i put the positive terminal on the bty coil in the reg (yellow arrow) switchers on and I get a spark from the bty. Why would this happen?

The last loom I had was melted in a few different places and it was like this when I got the car.

goodbye temp probe!!

hi all
i replaced the davies craig temp probe for the thermo fan, with this temp swich. $32 from repco, turns on at 95' and off at 90' its much neater and no leaks around the top hose. come to think of it, its also cheaper, think i paid about $60 for the probe set up.
anyway thanks to those who gave input on my earlier post.

HR? window winders

This morning I've been getting some parts ready to go to the chrome platers and I noticed a difference between some of my window winders.
As the photo shows they look very similar, the winder at the top has an indent where the ribs on the handle end, the one on the bottom does not. the ribs themselves are also a little different on the lower one and the knob is a touch smaller (height).
I have three like the one at the top, on the read of them it has a large circular GMH logo and the number 39. The one at the bottom has no logo and and the number 3.

Freebie + postage

Does anyone want this?
It is an old stock 16lb cap. The pressure is only marked in pounds, not kp or whatever metric pressure is. It fits pretty much any pollution Holden up to VS dunnydore and lesser cars such as Mitsubishis and those F things.
Postage is $5.95 anywhere in Australia, that is all it will cost. The cap is free to someone who will put it on their car. Stick it on ebay for a profit and I'll get my mate Aunty Jack to come around and do horrible things to your arms.

Chev SS - Left hand indicator SS trim wanted

Hey there folks, I have lost the chrome trim piece over the left hand indicator off a Chev SS (aka 1971 HG Monaro) . Runs from the left corner of the bonnet across the front of the left fender around and down the rear of the left front indicator to just above the bumper. (Sounds damned complicated but it is a small stainless peice of trim, See attached photo) Of all the bits of trim it is probably the only bit that is unique to the SS. If anyone can help please drop let me know.
Cheers....Compuway

are these early holden?

Brought these today, thinking they were for chev v8 into HQ-WB, but they appear to be about half inch to wide in the tabs, and are also to shallow (they hit against the face b4 the holes line up

Could they possibly be for HK etc? whats the difference between Hk and HQ engine mounts?

Radiator hose Connection

Quick silly question, I installed a new radiator months ago. I used a gasket on the top head discharge see photo. It is now leaking, should I use another gasket or can I use a liquid silcone tube thingy what do people recommend.
