EH Leaking under Windscreen

I have a hole LHS behind glove box around lock position which leaks water onto the front lhs carpet. Removed wipers, cowling grate thingy, can't see the hole from on top as there is a plate above it. I can just feel it with the tip of the back of my fingers. I can see the hole from below in front of the glove box. The hole is about the size of the top joint of your thumb. Please help me, how do I seal up that hard to get at place that just traps leaves, let them rot and rust out the panel? The drain tubes seem to be ok.

missing / stolen body ID tag

hi all ,

i know its a long shot , but am trying to track down a stolen / missing BODY ID TAG
it is from a HK GTS 327 MONARO , warwick yellow and parchment trim
late 80,s early 90,s the car was purchased as a damaged car ( rolled ) up north from a junk yard near derby
it was a local car to up there and was believed to be well know as a bit of a street machine
on its way being transported down to perth somewhere from point of departure to arriving
the big body identification tag only was removed from the car .
know doubt this is hanging in someones shed or bar as a ornament , or stashed away by someone who might have brought it much later
believing it to be a legit body tag ,

i have attached is a pic of what the tag would be ,

Hi Guys
Just the latest with the Prem that wont hold revs (253)
Its coming down to the overalled Carby,with the car in neutral
and holding it at say 2000-2500 rpm its like it breaks down after
3 or 4 seconds like its starving for fuel and when i place my hand
cupping (choking)the carby with a little space for air it springs
back into life it seems to be to much air on its own or not enough
fuel. It has new fuel pump and filter, electronic dizz leeds,plugs

Two Tonners

Anyone know what the history is with the Holden 2 Tonners? Were they produced by Holden, or outsourced for the conversion? I'm going to have a look at one that was converted by the Universal Chassis Group?

If there's a Holdenpaedia link on here, please enlighten me.

Cheers.

advice

Have got a HK prem been in family since new . Has been sitting in shed last 10 years . Has got original 186 but is fitted with trimatic (dad towed caravan and found powerglide very sluggish). Am about to start restoration and wish to rebuild 186 with xu1 cam triple su's extractors etc. Do i stick with the trimatic or do conversion to 4 speed holden or 5 speed supra maybe? Not looking for incredible performance just want under bonnet to look good and have nice lumpy sound.

Jig-saw puzzle

I'll try and post up a pic in acouple of days.........got a new toy for the classroom/workshop.

Its a 149, in bits, stuck on a wall :)
I put this very engine together some 20 years back as I was finishing Trade School. "Assemble and test engine" I think the module was called......
Anyway the TAFE has long since finished with it was going out the door, so I grabed it.
The board stands a bit over 6ft tall with hooks and mounts for a complete 149 in bits....sump bolts, water pump, oil pump, head, oil pick-up, fuel pipes, crank, cam....e/thing from fan to flywheel..'sept the blocks a bit heavy so it stays on the floor.
The idea was to put the thing together then run it on the engine Dyno, test it, then pull it apart again.
