Block Temp

Afternoon all, have been thinking about putting a block temp sensor on the 308 just to keep an eye on it during these warmer days. Anyone tried some the aftermarket ones that are available? Not sure I am trusting the faithful temp guage...

Sheds?

Jut thought I'd drop in and see how the progress on restoring the sheds was coming along.
I notice that even the link to the sheds is now gone?
So does that finally mean that the sheds won't be back, and we have lost everything?

Fuel Gauge

Why would my fuel gauge not work in my Holden wb with a white needle gts dash, it reads empty on the gauge but when there is a full tank it goes up to just under a quarter of a tank on the gauge, my float seems to be in good condition and the float arm moves freely there is power to the back of the gauge. There is also power at the fuel sender unit. Any help or info would be great! Cheers

HR 50th rebuild

My Xmas presents finally arrived. New V6 conversions IFS for my HR & a Supra 5 Speed. Got the brake booster & Rack end kit. Got a rebuilt VS power steering rack. VS stub axles etc. Been a good few months but finally all here. My engine is still being built so got to be patient. At least I can start taking the old girl apart. Lots of fun ahead!

HQ statesman steering/suspension issue

Seasons greetings Old Holdeners.

Hopefully someone here can provide some ideas/solutions/insight to steering issues.
1973 DeVille 308 auto, done 67,500km (whether that makes any difference or not. 15,000km in last 2.5 years in which ive owned it)

I took a hold of my vehicle last week, after it had front upper/lower arm bushes and sway bar bushes replaced (im told the engineering outfit that replaced the arm bushes had a nightmare of a job removing the old bushes. 1/2 day or more and nearly gave up).

Build numbers for the Brougham - Anyone?

I have a HG 308 Brougham and cant find build numbers (quantities) for individual models anywhere. Very curious to find out, as I know they are rare but not sure if there were more of these made than Monaro’s or less.

A Christmas story.

Every Christmas I take a busload of oldies from our local nursing homes around to see the local Christmas lights.
They had a great time again this year.
When we were unloading back at the last home one little old lady got helped off the bus and when they gave her walker to her she just stood there. After a few minutes they told here she could go down to her room. She just stood there leaning on here walker while they unloaded the bus.

Putting the H back in the Q.

Well Putting the H back in the Q seems to be a distant hope that draws on, it's been 13 months of waiting. I just wanna drive her. Shes been at the garage for the last month, other cars come and gone, Days have turned to months waiting for the completion of those jobs, me trilogy dates back (just search the title) I needed the drive-shaft modified and everything tuned up, having the 3.55 Banjo reconditioned including brakes and electrically sorted, run individual pipes out each side.

Weird Holden HR Body Code

Hi all, my HR body code is a bit strange. It doesn’t say what transmission it had. It is HR2106-3367S
Basically, it says it’s a Ute, and it is but it says it is the 33rd made in Sydney, and made in 67, which doesn’t make much sense.

HJ Hand brake problem

Hi all, been a while.
Hope you are all well!

Has any one had similar trouble with their HQ - WB handbrake levers?
The inner bit wants to keep spreading apart letting the cable pull through. As you can see I have crimped it a bit without much luck. Disassembly looks difficult too, as it is a drill apart job by the look of things.

Any advice appreciated.

Cheers

LMH
