Sort of old Holden. Well, not really. A bit.

Has anyone got a nice big OLD hardwood bookcase / book shelves that they wish to be rid of? By big I mean no less than around 2m wide X 1.5m tall. No pine, MDF or chipboard, just hardwood. Thanks folks! Cheers, Matt

Brake Proportiong Valve Switch Plug

Hi guys

I wanted to change the dash in my HJ to HZ because I really hate the long HJ speedo and dash.

The HZ loom I got has two wires going to the proportioning valve, but my HJ valve only has 1 post/terminal. Do I have to get a 2 terminal valve switch or can I modify the cable so it works?

Any help appreciated

Cheers
Darryl

HR gearbox problems

Hi Guys Im hoping someone may be able to help .
I am having huge problems with my 3 speed non syncro box in my HR, in the last two weeks ive had it lock up and chew out the syncro gears on 2nd & 3rd 3 times . I even took a box from another guy which said it was good and the car chewed out the syncro in that too.
Im suspecting that it could be the clutch but I haven't had any issues with it grabbing .
Is there something Im missing Any help would be great as now I have no car to get to work.

Buff and polish time

Hi all

I am planning on buffing the engine bay on the weekend so I can start putting it all Back together. I will be doing it by hand obviously being the bay.
I have never done it before, from what I've read I wetsand it back lightly with 1200 paper till its smooth, then polish it with a cutting compound and then finally polish it with a swirl remover, is that right? I'm not up to the outside yet just want to do the bay so I can reassemble for now.

Any help here would be great as I've never done it before.

Cheers
James

To paint or not to paint

Hi All well this may have been asked before but I would like to know if you can use a two PAC primer then put acrylic over the top? Would this then stop the issue of rust coming through the paint? I would like to paint my car myself and would like to use acrylic what do you think please?
Thank you

Shop Manuals

I was in an antique store today and saw a couple of original Holden shop manuals. One was for HD and the was (I think) FE. They were the original manuals from the 60's published by Holden. Just thought I'd mention in case anyone has been looking for them. Dealer was this one: http://bakerhoughton...

Advice wanted: Holden WB Ute Headlights

Hello Everyone - Just want to know what available headlight upgrades are available for a 1984 Holden WB Utility.

I would like brightest possible lights with a good distance due to being short sighted and possible night blindness.

Are any of these options possible: Angel Eyes? Led? HID? Halogen? etc.

If anyone can provide any information at all on options available to me - pricing, links to sites etc. that would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Michael

HJ Kingswood Wagon for Sale (VIC)

HJ Kingswood Wagon for sale (Melbourne, VIC)

202 3 Speed
Air Con (works well, arctic breeze like)
Power Steering
Condition is very good, there is a dint in the back drivers side door, its not super noticable.
Mechanicly and structurally this is a perfect car, mechanic can not believe the condition of the floor and chasis underneath. Great shifting 3 speed and the engine burbles away like a stock 202 does.

Has a stereo installed with 2 speakers hidden in the back panels.

Now is rust free after fixing the problematic area under the windscreen. And it also has a brand new windscreen.

The paint is worn, but it gives it a cool vibe, not ratty but a bit of spider webbing in spots.

I will supply a RWC and it comes with approximately 9 months registration.
