More of the shed finds

The old fella had eight FJ/FX utilities and probably enough parts to build a dozen more. All mostly rust free. He had probably 8 tailgates that I saw let alone what's buried.

Wow

Went out to a property yesterday, the son of the owner was selling stuff off to clean up the property for sale, his father was old and Ill. We walked into one of the sheds where I noticed what appeared to be a Sandman and I commented on, he informed me that it is his dads Sandman. He bought it new and it has only 125,000 genuine kms. All sales receipts, look books. It was fish oiled yearly from new until parked up in the shed 17 years ago. I hate the term but this is a genuine "Barn Find"
The son said it had found a new owner and the price paid was somewhat of a bargain.

Red 202 fan clutch and shroud setup

I want to put a shroud and fan clutch on my warm red 202 HZ van which has a V8 radiator. I can get a new shroud and new fan clutch but

1) I can't work out where the shroud is supposed to mount (think I'm missing brackets on the radiator)

2) can't find the blades for sale anywhere (to attach to fan clutch)

My current fan is 45mm (17.5") with a 2.5" spacer which I don't believe is stock and won't fit with the shroud (which I believe is 17" max?)

I'm located in Coburg, if anyone in Melbourne has parts for sales I'd appreciate it.

HR convertible located

Recently someone put up a post looking for the whereabouts of a HR convertible that was built by some wayward youths (I think) and raffled off.
By chance I was talking to my work colleague today when he mentioned his brother still mucked around with old cars, I asked what he had and he mentioned two HR convertibles. I asked him what the coloured was and he said red, I then asked if he knew the history of the car and he told me that it was built in Victoria by a group of young fellas as a raffle car.

T700 torque converter

Is the torque converter on all the T700's the same? I have an early (non-electronic) box and have found a torque converter from a later electronic box, and want to know if it will fit.
