manual to auto pedals

Hi, just wondering is it possible to remove/delete the clutch pedal from the pedal box in my hg to save the hassle of getting an auto pedal box and the drama of pulling the dash apart to swap it over. don't really care if i don't have the large brake pedal. thanks in advance

finally it registered!!!

The tonner is finally registered!

i took it to Vic roads today and i was very surprised, it was soooo easy! the inspection dude even commented how good it looked :-)

Vic rego for a 3 seater tonner (6 cyl) was $470, it's gone up heaps in the last few years but still better than most other states

Fb rear fuel filter

Hi Everybody,
I couldn't start my FB and worked out I have a fuel block somewhere.The front fuel filter is fine as that was re done about 2 years ago.I disconnected the hose at the front filter and no fuel was coming out when the engine was turned over.My question is,is there a rear filter near the tank as I can't locate it if so?
Thanks and Cheers.

HQ Coupe Identifiation Numbers

Hi Everybody, Im trying to identify my HQ Coupe which I hve under NSW Registration. It is a 9/71 which puts it in the run before the identification method changed in 1972. Not all google searches identify the ls under the 1237 coded option. None the less under the old system I have managed to establish the following:

The VIN, is a number I've managed to brake down. as follows
8 1237 Q J2 97192

Which I've translated as below
8 = Holden
1237 = '12' denotes Premier Monaro LS V8 & '37' denotes it as a Coupe.
Q = HQ model
J2 = Manufactured at Dandenong Melbourne
97,192 = The body production number.

The other two identificaiton plates remain a mystry to me

What motor did my HG monaro come out with.

I am currently trying to restore my HG monaro I have had for years. I bought it with no motor or box and was wondering how I tell what it came out with from the tags. Any info would be of great help.

Hj or wb heater

Guys. I have hj tonner which I also have wb stato interior for (probably over summer in painting weather). Thing is its md winter and I'd say the heater is crud to be polite. Seems to be hooked up right as a tiny breath of warmish air comes out. Car on gas if that makes any diff to Hoses etc. I have four prt question.
1. Can anything be done to get decent air flow from the fan?
2. Were the heaters ever any good in these?
3. Any ideas why it's blowing practically cold?
4. Will the wb heater be any better? Seems to look a bit different.

another tax related post

Received in a email.
I realized the awful truth of it.

Be sure to read all the way to the end!

Tax his land,

Tax his bed,

Tax the table

At which he's fed.

Tax his work,

Tax his pay,

He works for peanuts

Anyway!

Tax his cow,

Tax his goat,

Tax his pants,

Tax his coat.

Tax his tobacco,

Tax his drink,

Tax him if he

Tries to think..

Tax his car,

Tax his gas,

Find other ways

To tax his ass.

Tax all he has

Then let him know

That you won't be done

Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;

Then tax him some more,

Tax him till

He's good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,

Tax his grave,

Tax the sod in

Which he's laid.

When he's gone,
