From Indonesia

Hi....our holden HJ Statesman De Ville has just had a body makeover....however it is hard to start, needs a lot of fuel pumping to get her going, and then seems to go okay until the engine is turned off. If the temperature is up to half on the guage it refuses to start until cooled down to a quarter on the guage. One local mechanic says its the distributor rotor thats at fault, another says the holden needs a new carburettor. Looking for some good advice as this holden looks so good......email me an I'll send you a photo but I'd sure appreciate some info on the starting problem.

HELP, Surface Rust!

I am planning on buying an FJ that has been sitting in the elements for the last 20 years. Naturally it has no paint left, and is covered in surface rust (the rust hasnt visably eaten through the panel). Is there a way of restoring the panels or are they stuffed? the panels are in other wise excellent condition no dints etc, and it would be a pity to waste them.

HZ Crossmember

Howdy
Im in the process of putting a 350 and 400 turbo into my HZ Tonner but the old crossmember doesnt seem to line up with my new gearbox. Ive asked a few people about this and most seem to think that it should,but one bloke reckoned that there is a special crossmember for the job.None of the wreckers Ive asked seem to know anything about this?
Wondering if any body out there could shed some light on the matter for me!

EH Paint Codes - Revisited

Greetings

I recently rewrote the original EJ EH Paint Codes document for a newsletter. Changed it from alphabetical order to numeric order - it's now shiploads easier to use. Also included info on colour combos for the various models etc. PDF available (Rusty - anywhere to post it at this site?) send an email to staleys@ozemail.com.au and I'll send you a copy.
