Biggest rims to fit under a HR without guard mods

G'day all. First time user to this site. Gotta apologise to Harry the HR as we're not the same person. Harry is what my HR has always been known as. I guess ditto for the other guy. Anyway, embarking on the restoration journey after 24 years of ownership and would like to know, what are the biggest sized rims that can fit under the guards without tubbing etc. 13" tyres seem to be hard to get these days. I was thinking 15s. Anyway, thanks for any help offered.

Panel and paint shops in WA

Hi All,

Just after some feed back about panel shops in perth, my HR has a few issues that need the professional touch. So far ive heard that RPM Panel and Paint in Bibra lake do a good job for a reasonable price. Please let me know about any experiences you've had, both good and bad with joints here in Perth.

Cheers,

yella terra head

thanks for everyones help so far i have removed my cylinder head and could not see any cracks but what ive found is that a few of the pistons have a fair ammount of oil on top of them. would this be caused by rings or from the head also found on the head between number 6 and the water jacket there is some corrosion and this seems to be where the water is coming from but im not sure how its getting to the sump im guessing that under compression the water has no where to go so it is forced pas the rings onto the sump?

186-S Spec Suggestions

Hi All,

My HK Kingswood has the original 161 in it. Just picked up a 186 that was bored out of of a HP block.Also have a syncro gear box to go in.
When I put the 186 in I was going to add a bit to it:
350 Holley
It has extractors already on it.
Remove the old exhaust and put a bigger one in. Any suggestions?

I didn't want to touch any of the internals of the engine apart replacing bearings.

Does anyone have any suggestions on mild improvements for the the 186?
Also, what separated the 186 and the 186S?

Cheers,

Jim
