HQ Parker light help

Hi all

I'm hoping someone might be able to give me some help on this one. I have an early HQ with the clear indicators and parkers in one. With no lights on the indicators work as normal. Putt the parkers on, they don't light up. However the indicator lights on the dash come on solid. If I put the indicators on with the parkers the light on the dash go out and the Parker/indicator for whatever side you indicate will come on solid.

Hoping someone may of had this before or might be able to point me in the right direction

Holden speedo speed

Does any know what speed early Holden (EH) speedos are rated at?
I've got an old Smith's 140mph speedo which is marked 1600rpm on the back. I assume that is revolutions per mile.
I wondered if Holdens are the same. I have a feeling Holdens might be 1,000rpm.

Indicators not functioning

Hi Old Holden Crew
I have recently been away for 6 weeks on school holiday. I left my battery disconnected, when I reconnected it I accidentally shorted out the spanner on the body for a brief second. I started the car and and it ran fine. I drove it around and found the indicators were not working. I had blown a couple of fuses but not the indicator fuse. All fuses are now replaced and live. Indicators still not functioning. When I turn on the indicators I here an initial click after the stalk has been shifted and then nothing. Any Ideas what the problem might be?

Convert heat choke? Hq 308

Hi guys
Just wondering If you can convert the 308 heat choke system to electric? I have the type where the heat tubes connect to the exhaust, problem is I don't have those tubes, I'm running extractors and have the tall rocker covers, there's a rochester auto electric choke on ebay from a store for 30 ish bucks but in there photo it's mounted right on the side of the carby and mine is on the manifold, will this still work? Or what other options do I have?

V8 Swap Advice and Opinions

Hi all,

Im looking for some advice regarding a v8 swap i want to do in my hq ute. It currently runs a 202 with 4 speed, and i am looking at either a 253, 308 or 304 to swap. This ute is my daily drive, so i want something reasonable on economy, i do mostly highway driving. I dont want to spend anything more than 5k and am aiming for a fly wheel horsepower of around 300-350, nice to cruise in with some punch when i want it. I dont mind a full rebuild as it would be good experience.

HG VAN AND UTE

Hi all.
I have a HG Van needing full resto and a HG Ute in very good original unrestored condition. The ute only needs a general tidy up.
I need a bench seat and door trims (Antique Gold Interior?) for the van. I bought a prem for spares a long time ago, to get the bucket seats and door trims as the Seating Capacity shows 2. However the trim code is Antique Gold with a bench seat suffix. 1801-11A. Incorrectly stamped when the ADR plate was attached. I have the buckets and rear seat from the prem (sedan) as well as the front and rear door trims.
It has 186/trimatic but should be 161 3 on the tree. I also need a 161 and manual bell housing, clutch linkages and gear linkages to go on the subframes. Also have a few spares to swap or trade.
