Dead sheds..

Yes I understand the sheds are closed. I lost the link to my "fake" shed, does anyone know how to find it?
DDD, the link worked to your shed that you gave me, but I couldn't get to mine through there.
Does anyone know how to find it please or have a link to the fake sheds? I think my shed was on or around page 27 if that helps.
Ta..

VH Commo boot lock barrel

Hullo all,
I've lost the keys to my VH Commo but managed to open it up with a coat hanger
& the boot using 1 of my LJ's worn keys with a bit of a wiggle.
I didn't have me eyes on when I had a look earlier but can anyone tell me how
the boot lock barrel is retained? it doesn't have the plate you slide upwards & secure
with 2 screws.
Also is the barrel the same as an LJ's? Was going to use a spare 1 I've got a key for.
Cheers
J.

Genuine original Carby HZ 253

Does anybody know what is the correct number a HZ 253 Auto should have for a Carby. I am currently looking at replacing mine, the number on mine is a 23-1111. Is that the original number that the car should have or is there other options?

It’s a 2 barrel Stromberg.

Ebay score

I'm taking a CD player up to Nathan this weekend so he can put it in his EA Flacon.
I thought I'd look on ebay for one of those plug in wiring adapter connectors.
I found one for $15.99 with free postage.
The listing had a $15.99 discount code.
Bought it, entered the code.
Net cost to me: Nothing. Zero. Zilch.
Good shopping.
David

1966 ute

I have a 1966 Holden ute, its at Bunyip Panels at the moment, Peter and his team doing a wonderful job on the body, finally got paint on it last week, please feel free to jump onto his website and have a look at the pics.
I want to put a hard lid on the rear but so far are unable to find a manufacturer to make the hard covers for utes this age. Does anyone out there know of a manufacturer?
thanks for your time
Duane and Jenny

Old an grey

Fred Foster Twin Cam Grey motor was apparently made before Waggott . This is only one known to survive other one went missing both used in boats . Cast in Brisbane apparently . Late 1952. A self taught and fulltime metallurgical genius Fred Foster got the ball rolling with his six part alloy sandwich. It was a brilliantly simple design based on some $5 plans chalked into his floor at Fosters factory.

Door trim and seal panels

I just came across this on ebay: https://www.ebay.com...
They have door trim backing panels for many of our old Holdens and other cars.
They also have pre-cut 200micron thick pre-cut plastic sheet for sealing the inside of our doors.

Position of studs (revets) for windscreen trim on HJ Caprice

Hi all, happy Sunday.

Two questions regarding my HJ Caprice (not Kingswood):

1. Does anyone know where I can find a rough positioning of the small studs (now rivets) that the clips slide onto? I had to remove several of mine to do rust repairs, need to replace them, and don't have a "donor" car to check positioning. It would appear that the front has 6 across the top and 9 across the bottom, and the rear has 8 across the top, four down each side, and xxxxx (????) across the bottom, but the bottom ones don't appear to be symmetrical (left to right) for some reason.

Ej Holden jumps out of 3rd gear after clutch overhaul

I know from what I have read EJ's with crashbox are a bit prone to jumping out of 3rd gear from time to time, but it only uses to be when on a long run and then coasting downhill.

Kero & paint

Hey guys, When I was young, a panel beater friend said to use a few cupfulls of kero with water rather than soapy carwash. He said the kero would keep the paint in good condition, help rejuvenate poor paint and have the added benefit of preventing rust around stainless trips / clips. (Of course this is relating to older cars). He reckoned that newer car washes contributed to rust problems.
Ive used it, but not regularly. has anyone else used it or know about it?
Im going to try it today on the HT which has pretty poor paint ATM and then polish it.
