Dr Terry

or anyone else with a good knowledge base, what other engines if any, be it Four, Six, or Eight cylinders, share the same bell housing bolt pattern as the Holden straight six engines?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers, Mick.

Steering Column Spline differences

Hi, Can anyone help with some info. Is there any difference between early Holden and HQ steering column splices? I understand that different model steering columns are different diameters for fitment, but are the splines the same? any help would be appreciated. Cheers

Crowdy Head rattle trap races

Tickets are on sale for the Rattle Trap Races on Crowdy Head beach on Saturday, 4th may.
This is a great day of racing on the sand with old school hot rods put on by Drag Ens.
Tickets usually go fast, I've missed out the first two times it was on. Got mine tonight, third time lucky.

HK Monaro back in the day

Found this pic of a HK Monaro during the 1974 floods in Brisbane.
Looks like Alice St, right next to the Parkroyal Motor Inn.

Tell him he's dreaming

$80,000 for a POS that needs restoring.
I know it's a four door HQ GTS, but is it worth $80,000 of my money. Maybe I'd think twice if it was a genuine 350 and i had lots of money.
Is HQ 80469 the correct code for a HQ GTS sedan?

Why are fire engines red?

Ever wondered why are fire engines red ?????
Its because they have eight wheels and four people on them, and four plus eight makes twelve, and there are twelve inches in a foot, and one foot is a ruler, and Queen Elizabeth was a ruler, and Queen Elizabeth was also a ship, and the ship sailed the seas, and there were fish in the seas, and fish have fins, and the Finns fought the Russians, and the Russians are red, and fire trucks are always โ€œRussian" around, so that's why fire trucks are red!

BT52 at Bathurst

The new Brabham will be doing demo runs at the Bathurst 12 hour.
It will be interesting to see how it goes.
It's competing at LeMans later in the year.
If I was filthy rich I would get the street legal version for weekend runs up Walcha mountain.

Does the Blue 2850 engine have a counter weighted crank similar to the Blue 3300 engine? Or is it's crankshaft similar to it's earlier 173 red motor sibling?

Cheers, Mick.

Probably Not Something Old Holdeners will have to worry about/

Fuchs perhaps "Fuched Up" https://www.nzherald... "A man whose Maserati shook, shuddered and sounded like a "tractor" when it broke down has failed to force the car's seller to refund the purchase price after wrong oil was put in it.

Auckland company C&P Beauty Services bought the Maserati Ghibli for $87,400 in April 2017 with fewer than 9000km on the clock.

But 10 months later, it broke down and now requires an engine overhaul, expected to cost "many thousands of dollars".
