Festid Cheer

It was the night before Christmas, and all through the house, nothing was stirring not even a mouse. Good to see those rat baits worked.

Merry Christmas

Festive Cheer

Some good advice to get you though Christmas and the holiday season.

With the holidays upon us I would like to share a personal experience with my friends about drinking and driving.

As you may know some of us have been known to have brushes with the authorities from time to time on the way home after a "social session" out with friends.

Well two days ago I was out for an evening with friends and had several beers, cocktails followed by some rather nice port, feeling quite jolly I still had the sense to know that I may be slightly over the limit.

That's when I did something that I've rarely done before - I took a bus home.

Attn rusty

Rusty,

Not sure if anyone else has had this but I just got an email from oldholden with a link to reset my password but I never asked to do it.
Is someone trying to get my password? Or just a glitch?
Anyone else had this?

Cheers
James

Attention MYEH Holden re Led Headlights

Hello My EH,
I have seen the photos you added with the J W Speaker Led headlights. My question to you is how good are they compared to HID lights or new car lights.
I would consider looking at these if they work and supply a outstanding light beam.I am looking at upgrading mine to 75w 6000k HID H4 in new semi sealed
casings. but if these can supply a good light source could be an option.

Unknown 308 Engine Number

Ok, so I ended up getting the 308 (http://oldholden.com...). It ended up being an HQ block I believe. Can someone tell me more bout the engine number? I can't find much with an internet search. It is dated 28D74 (assume 28/4/1974?) and the engine number is 11Q12487** closest I can find on the net is a statesman block but they're 11QT.... I have definitely read the number correctly the 1 is not a T. Any ideas?

Trimatic / 186 flex plate

I have just put in a new flexplate (the right way round)and bolted the engine and trans together (with the shim plate/spacer) and now I have this strange noise coming from that area, like it is hitting something, but just slightly. I thought it may be hitting on the gear on the starter, so I changed the starter for another, still the sound is there.

EH turning circle

Hi all

Have been enjoying my new rego and taking the EH out for a few drives.
I've noticed though that the turning circle when turning right seems to be quite a bit less than turning left. Although rarely driven before rego, I don't remember it being like that before I had the kingpins, steering arm etc done.
Any ideas what's wrong?

Cheers
Rob

Which carbs?

Hey y'all. I'm going to remove my triples (temporarily) to make another manifold to suit the new head. I have a set of X2 strombergs.. std 1 3/32 (1.094"). Should I swap to the larger stromberg carbs to feed the warm 202? Which ones... 1 5/32 (1.156") or 1 7/32 (1.218") I reckon bigger must be better. And yes... I have the original GOLD aircleaner, must be worth a few horses powers.
Have a good one fullas!
