HZ One Tonner Windscreen Replacement

Hi Everyone,

I'm just wondering if all HZ windscreens are the same or are the one tonner windscreens different?

Cheers
Scott

engine slope

Hi all. Is it bad if an engine sits higher at the front of the car and slopes down towards the firewall? Mine sits on about a 5 degree angle. I'm just wondering if it affects setting float levels or anything. Probably a silly question but i though best to ask now as i will be making extractors next week and want to be sure that it is sitting right. I have attached a pic.

smelly fuel smell

Finally worked out why my car kept stinking of fuel after driving. All lines were hooked up through the fuel vapour separator block above the diff and the vapour line that runs to the charcoal canister was cut at the drivers side door and pinched but still open so all vapour was going straight into the cab. I removed the block and ran new lines up to breathers where the block was. No fuel smell at all :-)

Questions about an LX Torana

Hey guys, about a month or so ago I got myself a 1976 LX Torana, I consider myself one super lucky 16 year old haha, but i have very limited knowledge of how the old holdens would work, so I was just wondering if anyone has any advice for me or any tips to help me get reasonable performance throughout the car, without blowing alot of money, after all I do only have a job at McDonalds till I finish year 12 haha. It is running a Holden red engine 173ci and as far as I know has had no modifications.

Vk 4 speed

Hi all,
Quick question. I have a vk sedan 6cyl carb 4 speed torque master. It's on a farm so it doesn't have to pass rego. Will the Aussie 4 speed from a red 6 bolt straight up to the bell housing or will I need the m20 bell housing as well.

If I was to change to a m20 box, will the tail shaft yoke still fit, and tail shaft length be ok?
cheers

HZ Front drivers door

Hi all,

Wondering if anyone in the Sydney (Campbelltown) area has a good RHF door to suit a HZ tonner. Mine has ripples in it from previous repairs / welding up trim holes, not done by me. I could probably fix it but........

Not looking for a door to suit "GTS", "Monaro", "SS", or that is "NOS, Genuine, Rare", or otherwise EBay priced. Just a pretty good Kingswood door for reasonable money.

Let me know what you've got.

Cheers

Kev

Quality Of Life...!

Well, it's finally on order....

http://www.rarespare...

It seems small, but when I fit this baby I'm gonna be smiling broadly, everywhere I go.
My life will improve substantially when I finally, again:
* have a horn that works,
* a nice firmly operating blinker wand, and
* a totally smooth steering column bearing.

three on the tree problems

Hi all,
i went on a crusade early last night and fixed all the issues i still had with the hq, this was mainly electrical stuff but i had the bright idea or spraying some wd40 down the top of the column to try and free her up a little, somehow, it did the exact opposite. the mechanism started jamming like never before and in the top of the column.

so now the thing is in a million pieces and im filing bits square again and deburing things but she seems to worn to bother putting back together. seems like the issue uis that the tube jams in the top bushes because they are soo flogged its able to slip sideways.

im wondering weather anyone can get around this or im looking for a 'better' column.

Fuel pump or regulator or something else???

G'day everyone

So, moving the ute on and off the trailer and its getting low on juice, and I mean REAL low (no fuel in the filter)- filled it up on the way home and go to unload it, no joy it wont start ... and hasn't since.

I've got the electric fuel pump jumped straight off the battery at the moment (yes it is on a fuse!) and its making all the right noises and it picked up the fuel (fuel filter is now full). So, check for fuel pressure on the gauge has some but not much (its set real low because of the SUs). Check for spark just in case, chucked the timing light on and its strobing so theres spark at the leads.

I reckon this old girl might have spent some time in the hot Australian sun.

It looks like it would be a good starter for restoration. No fresh paint hiding fresh bog.
