Has anyone here replaced a panelvan roof before?

Hi All. I am picking up a HJ panelvan this week that has a reasonable roof to donate to my 3 door ambulance. Has anyone here ever replaced a panelvan roof? Maybe some stories of things too look out for would be really good, althoe I have a feeling im about to embark on something many people would put into the too hard basket so i wont be suprised if im going this one alone! ill endevour to take photo's.

WB Dash Warning Lights

I need a dash warning light cluster for my WB Tonner. I have seen one for sale on ebay but apparently is only for the HJ-Z models. I don't have an owners handbook and the existing cluster is so badly perished I cannot read the icons.
Does anybody know what the difference between the WB and the HJ-Z on offer?

Pro comp

Found a Pro comp stroker kit for sale for a motor I have and am wondering what peoples opinions of them are. It seems cheap and I have concerns it could be because that's all it's worth because it's dodgy. All opinions appreciated.

Air cond FC wagon

Can anyone tell me if I can fit air co to an FC wagon and if so where would I souce a unit. I am guessing it would have to be an under dash set up.
Also can I fit power steering to the same car.
Engine will most probably be a red holden 186.

Cheers, Mark

Hi All, im currently collecting parts needed to but an ecotec into a HR and im having some trouble in deciding which radiator is best to use. Has anyone completed this conversion and if so what radiator did you use? iv done some measuring and to fit the commodore one in i need to notch the front end mounts, is this a good idea?
I know i should contact Castlemain or v6 conversions but they are currently on brake and im was hoping to finish the job during the holidays.
Thank, James.

Odd Trimatic fault.

Seasons greeting to all !

I've had a very odd Trimatic ( 308 / LS code version ) fault appear in the last month.

ONLY happens when cold.

1 to 2 Minutes after start up and whilst idling slowly down the street the transmission completely looses all drive for about 1 second and then thumps back into drive , The problem doesn't happen again until the gearbox is cold again.

"Appears" to me as a total loss of fluid pressure?

It seems to happen mainly in 1st or 2nd gear but I "Think" I've had it occur in 3rd a couple of times but not certain.

I've checked the fluid level and it is spot on and the fluid is clean with no signs or smells of burning.

Wanted - HR rims for my EH with HR disc brake front end.

Wanted - Stock HD/HR RIMS for HR disc brake front end on my EH Wagon.
Hi Folks,
Happy Christmas. I'm new to posting on Old Holden so here goes...
Firstly thanks to reaperHR for some great workshop guidance.
My EH wagon and a newly rebuilt HR disc front end are both sitting in the garage waiting to be fitted - but they need some stock HR rims for the disc brake set-up.
Thanks for the stack of posts (most from 2005) re the different HR/HD rim types/ compatibility/ passenger vs commercial/ identifying little hole vs no-hole etc etc.)

308

Merry Christmas everyone. I have a question about 308 bolt patterns. I have an HZ Kingswood with an M21 'box on a 202. I bought a 308 a couple of years ago to to fit in and it is supposed to be a Trimatic pattern. i also bought a bellhousing to adapt to the M21. When I trial fit it, the dowls and most of the bolt holes line up but the bottom two are about half a hole out. This is the same when I trial fit a trimatic 'box. It obviously isnt a Turbo block, the holes would be totally different. Anybody heard of this before?

Will

81 WB 202 conversion to 253?

Hi all, This is my first post.
I recently acquired an 81 WB ute. 202 blue, 3 on the tree. Its had some work done already, new clutch and brakes etc. It has 11 months rego and its going to be a daily driver, cant afford the loan on my 4x4 in a first year apprenticeship.

Not 100% sure what I'm going to do with it yet. looking for suggestions.

Definately want to clean out the rust and respray it.

I think I'd like to put a 253 in it. I dont want it to be too thirsty but it is on gas so I think I could afford it. But what else would I have to do to go along with that? Do I need a different gearbox/transmission etc?

Otherwise I will just hot up the 202 in it. Where do you start on something like that?
