Nightstalker

Howdy to all. Hope you had a great chrissy & be safe for the new year.
Talking at a BBQ last night, a friends son was telling me that he has an old survivor holden panel van(can't remember HJ,Z,X), it is green with the name "NIGHTSTALKER" on the side of it.
Anyone have pics of it???
Cheers, Bryan

One Job Done

Well, first job on my holiday list done. Stripped down rear brakes, cleaned and greased the backplates, fitted new wheel cylinders and shoes, adjusted the brakes and reset the handbrake.

Tomorrow will bleed the brakes, fit the new Tailshaft and shocks and take her for a test drive :-)

Hj panel van parts

Hi guys ,

I have a hj premier instrument cluster in good nick if anyone out there wants to swap or buy .

I am looking for a drivers side mirror, benchseat and door trims if anyone out there has them .
Any condition is ok .

I have a hj holden 76 panel van with a 173 in it that I recently purchased pretty cheap.
It's straight with minimal rust , good chrome and original roof racks .
I know it's not a sandman as its a 3 seater etc but did they make base model commercial hj sandmans in 1976 with a 173 engine ?

308 Roller Rockers

Hi,

With the 308 I bought recently I had the seller throw in a set of roller rockers that he said used to be on the motor before he changed the heads and had the engine reconditioned. The reason he didn't use them were because the studs were too big. Anyway I was thinking of getting studs with a 5/16 bottom to suit the heads however when I looked up the rocker part number (YT 5019) it says they're for a SBC. Will they still suit my 308 or should I sell them? I have emailed Yella Terra but have not had a response yet.

LX Torana buying New Rims

Hi all,

I am trying to buy a new set of rims from the states for my 77 LX SL Torana.

I am having issues understanding exactly what size rims (backspace and stud pattern). I know the pattern must be 5 PCD @ 4.25" but what backspacing should be used?

I am running flares and looking to run 14x6 & 14x8.

Cheers

Starter motor keeps running?

Hi guys 
This is technically off topic but it could happen to your old holden, the starter motor on my dune buggy (vw 1600 motor) engages and cranks over fine, however once you release your finger from the starting button it continues to wind over until you disconnect the battery, I bypassed the switch but it wasn't the problem. Any ideas why this would be happening? Its not the bendix/throw out that isn't disengaging as i tried it without the coil wire connected and it keeps winding over. 
As always, Any help is appreciated.
Cheers, Mark.

FJ Door handle removal

Having trouble removing passenger outer door handle on my van.

I have pulled the tabs out (door lock came out easy) but handle still wont come off.

Is it seized in there perhaps?? does it need a small attitude adjustment with a hammer?? or is there a trick to removing it??

Air cleaner &silencer for a WW2 strommie

Gday guys, I'm hunting a air cleaner bottom and top to suit the WW2 strommie. They came out on the 186s, 161s and I think the early 253's. The base is paramount a the throat is wider than standard, tops are interchangeable......I think. Cheers, Heath
