joke

A guy walks into a bar with his pet monkey. He orders a drink and while he's drinking, the monkey starts jumping all over the place. The monkey grabs some olives off the bar and eats them, then grabs some sliced limes and eats them, then jumps up on the pool table, grabs the cue ball, sticks it in his mouth and swallows it whole.

! more question

The VR has a broken engine mount on th drivers side. Ive sussed it out on a few other sites, and got mixed answers. Some say That you need a block and tackle and a whole day to do the job. Others say that you can change the Drivers side one by Jacking the motor up and whacking th new one in. So can anyone here give me the right answer Please?

Sadly it has come time to part ways with my beloved HQ Statesman.
Due to lack of time and money i can no longer justify keeping her.

The good:
-Trimatic was recently (March) compleatly re built.
-New Holly 570 Street Avenger Carby
-Converted to LPG and runs beautiflly on both petrol and LPG.
-Engin was reconditioned around 70,000ks ago in 1999 and as stated above is still running beautiffley.
-Tyers are still in good condition with dress rims and statesmen hubcaps
-Radiator was recently reconditioned
-Lucky extraxtors into a 2 1/4 inch single pipe. She sounds beautifl but is not stupid loud.
-new windscreen
-Aircon blows cold and the heater blows hot.

Coil spring insulators

Hi All, Has anybody made coil spring insulators or used the plastic tape type? I am overhauling my disc brake front end and would like to fit some in the shock tower. I think automatic HR's had thick ones installed, the remnants of mine are about 2mm thick.
Cheers Jim

New post on Diff codes

Has anyone come across the Diff Code of G95 on the body/trim plate of an HQ?
Ihave recently bought an HQ Kingswood sedan, 202, Automagic and the codes for the engine, transmission, paint and interior are all correct and matching but the diff code is a mystery to me being G95. The car is the brown sedan in the photos on the left of this page or have a look in my shed.

Cheers
Dick

Resto question

Hi Guys,

I am in the process of my HT restoration and I face a the common dilemma which is trying to complete the best rebuild I possibly can with the funds I have available. I would like to spend most of my funds on the mechanical side of things and the body work and therefore I am trying to find ways of restoring other areas of the car in a more affordable way without cutting corners. For example when restoring the heater system I primed and then painted the fan motor, heater core (not the fins), and flap with VHT high temperature paint to avoid components from rusting. I am only plating bolts which you will see and painting the heads of other bolts with VHT satin black.
It looks good to me but I am unsure how good this will all be in the long run.
