HK Buckets

Image: 

HK Buckets, Premier or Monaro or both. Were the Bucket seats in the pic available from the factory for 68 HK Premier, they have the correct Prem trim and cloth insert. Recline back with the round knob, but also have the recline forward lever which would indicate Monaro two door. Were they available on premier ?

Had a visitor today.

The red one belongs to an old lady in town. It was her mother's car from new and she has driven it for 32 years that I know of.
A lot of people around town think it's an old POS but I've known for a long time how fanatical she is about mechanical maintainance. She can't afford much body maintainance, unfortunately. I've been giving her bits for it for 10 years, the dearest was a $5 starter motor.
It's a 179 auto Special, body no 2197 from Sydney, so it's a pretty early EH. It has a trimatic and Commodore dizzy but is otherwise stock.
It surprised me just how well the old thing goes, stops and steers.

Steering Box Adjustment

Hi guys. Hope everyone had a good Chrissie.

I've got a bit of slack in the steering box. Can move the wheel 2.5 cm each way before the pitman arm starts to move. I've read up on the method of adjusting the box using a spring scale but have no Spring scale and can't find anyone that sells one with the right scale.

So was thinking of adjusting the sector shaft screw and the worm shaft but a quarter turn and see if it removes the play. If I mark the original positions I can always take it back where it was. What do you guys reckon?
