A Brabham wins again in his own car

A great day for Australia and motorsport.
Jack Brabham's son David won the first race he entered in his new Brabham BT62, which he built (with a lot of help, just like his father). There are stories around that it is a further development of the Joss.
This car is Australian designed, using Australian technology, and built in Australia.

3 speed floor shift reverse

Hi Guys
I have bought a panno with 3sp on floor but no reverse light switch. I know which wires are supposed to be connected but there doesn't appear to be a switch. Anyone tell me where and what part number these are supposed to be on these so I can get it roadworthy please. It's a 202 so I would think Aussie 3sp box, in a HX.

What's this number mean?

Hi
OK, so on the HZ and WB I have there is a 4 digit code on the bottom of the A Pillar below and forward of the bottom door hinge. It is fairly small, stamped and is LETTER, NUMBER, LETTER, NUMBER. I can find bucket loads of VIN info but no mention of this. And it doesn't correspond to any numbers on ANY of the firewall build plates. Can't find it in Holdenpedia....
Any thoughts guys?
THanks

Holden/Holdex filing cabinet?

I found this old filing cabinet in a garage. It has a HOLDEX badge on it that looks exactly like a early 30s HOLDEN badge but has an X instead of an N at the end spelling HOLDEX. I’ve googled it but can’t find much about HOLDEX filing cabinets only that they made fridges and ovens trading as General Motors Holden Frigidaire.If anyone could give some info on whether this is a Holden cabinet or a very early trademark/copyright infringement!

Water pump failure, internal damage?

hey fellas,

I was driving home from work and I'm guessing the water pump bearing failed causing it and the fan to explode into the rad. Damage includes all pulleys,timing belt slipped off,balancer,radiator and the obvious of course. My question is would there be any internal damage at all, I'm guessing there would be chunks of metal from the pump where the pump is on the block.The car ran for another 10 meters as I was mid corner and to get the the side of the road to avoid traffic. My concerns are for the internals versus the list above.

HG wagon tailgate

Calling 68surfwagon
Could anyone please send me pictures of the HK, HT or Hg tailgate, outer rubber, setup for the wind up window.

I've been told that they don't make them anymore but they are a piece of stainless steel, bent, to form a u shape.. then that is screwed to the tailgate and the rubber is wedged in between the bent part. and the other edge rubs against the glass

yes a loose description but I expect a picture would explain it better.

I have two tail gates and neither have this part

Thanking you in advance
Kel

old holden parts

Cleaning up my shed the other day and found what look like door seals in sealed Nasco bags. One is part number 7411248, the other 7414307. From a search on the internet I think the first one is a rear tail gate rubber from an EK wagon (many years ago my father in law had an EK wagon in a paddock and I had a sedan so he may have given them to me). No idea what the second one is. I can't find any database of old holden parts. Any ideas? I now have a 75 GTS Monaro so have no need for these parts.

HR Holden Vinyl Floors

Good morning,

Is anyone selling replacement vinyl floors for HR Holdens in any other colour than black?

After heaps of searching I can only locate black reproduction vinyl floor. My vehicle is however Lurline blue with matching interior.

Does anyone either supply the blue vinyl floors or happy to paint and ship to Tasmania?

Cheers

Locky
