Ignition barrel

I ended up getting the old barrel out which was stuck on the on position, the new one wont push in all the way home and i don't want to force it in .
So just wondering would that little mechanism in that hole above the number 203 have anything to do with it not being able to push it back in .....the lock is in the on position when trying to re insert it

A Tribute to Holden

I own a 66 HR Wagon - all original. My son, Josh has started a video production business; he has 50k's plus worth of commercial camera /lighting gear, he wants to create a "Tribute to Holden" for free.

Why free- he needs to develop a "treatment" reel that we can show to potential major customers - to do that he needs a great subject and content.

We are looking for Chrome Bumper era Holden owners based around SE QLD to help us make a 5 minute video. All we need is your car and your time, you will get to keep the video.

Holley 350 CFm Tow Barrel Carburettor Workshop Manual Tuning

Hello All,

One of my engines has a sick Holley 350 CFM two barrel carburettor on it. The carburettor needs a rebuild kit put through it.

As soon as the auto-gearbox is put into "D" the engine dies.

Can anyone recommend a Holley 350 CFM repair and tuning workshop type of manual. What is the name of the repair manual and where they are available from?

Kind regards
Lionel

Game of Holden

I was thinking of making up a complete list of all the old Holden 6 cylinder sports carburettor / manifold options for each Holden Model aka

a) Factory Fitted i.e. HR - X2 / 186S
b) Dealer Fitted i.e. VH - CDT Strata Turbo
c) After Market i.e. FX - Norman Supercharger

So Game of Holden starts Monday - FX carby day and then next day is FJ carby day etc.... A new heading tomorrow will be FX Carbie Options - anyone can start it don't wait for me!

Ht brougham dash

Hi guys,

I bought a 1969 HT brougham about 2 years ago. I’ve been doing research on it for a while. They’re pretty rare so getting info on them seems to be a bit hard. I think it might have some rare options as I can’t seem to find any pictures or info of cars that are the same. Maybe I’m looking in the wrong places.

It’s got cloth and vinyl bucket front seats with small headrests(perhaps they’re just high back) and a centre console. Also on the r/h side it’s got water temp and oil pressure gauges where there normally seems to be nothing on other cars.

HR Holden Flooring

Good evening everyone,

The original blue rubber flooring in my HR is really starting to fall to pieces and needs to be replaced.

Its an immaculate HR sedan in Lurline blue with a white roof. The interior is blue and green and in VCG. It has 55,000 miles on it and gets driven once a month.

I have three options;

1) replace with original moulded black rubber flooring from all carpets with logos etc in black and obviously have black rubber floors ($900)

Fuel gauge is stuck on full

Hey guys,
Ive recently bought a 1976 Holden HQ with 202 six cylinder.
it runs perfectly but the only problem is that the fuel gauge is stuck on full whenever you turn the key to ignition, I've made sure the sender is grounded to the chassis but it didn't seem to work all the wiring is working but we don't know what else it could be.
do you guys have and suggestions?

hz petrol tank sender installation

gday all,

can any of you boys pls advise if there's any tips-and-tricks
with installing me new (ie. reconditioned) petrol tank sender?

i'm using the same o-ring coz the one i got with the reco
job was too thin and wouldnt seal. i'm just gonna turn it
upside down.

i tried getting a new, nitrile o-ring from cbc bearings but none of them were thick enough. i tried 4 different sizes..

someone told me to apply a liddle bit of silcone sealer,
then fit the retainer locking washer/ring.

any ideas boys?

bij.

In lockdown

I had a doctor's appointment today. They rang and told me not to come in, he will ring me.
I can't leave the house until this virus problem is over. I can't even go for a ride on my pushie.
My problem is that I have no adrenal glands. Your adrenal glands produce cortisol, which regulates your immune system through your stress response.

Take Dem out of Pandemic

Hi From Perth

Lets recap what's happening - Holden shuts and we all die.

Yeh but Nah - I've been thinking about how shinny my HR will be in a months time, the mag wheels metal polished and all the little bits and pieces I have been putting off for years will be done.

Then I will start on my nest Holden project trying to spend no money - like fixing up old bits on my FJ Holden as there's no better time to be rust converting or sand blasting - what a great time to get old Holden's fully operational as they will be worth heaps in years time.

Performance Engine Cranks

Did the early X2 crankshafts have any machining differences (larger fillets etc) to the standard crankshafts, given that all cranks were forged/steel pre Feb 1967.

Cheers, Mick.

Camshaft ID

Hi Folks, can anyone help identify these random camshafts?
I suspect they're pretty standard as the lift measures around.220"
One has JM252 marked on the end and looks like a 202 cam that's been reground.
The other is a non 202 I suspect because it doesn't have the cut outs. It has an S stamped at the end.
Be nice if it was an original 186S cam but I have no idea.
Thanks Dave
