HR Holden Flooring

Good evening everyone,

The original blue rubber flooring in my HR is really starting to fall to pieces and needs to be replaced.

Its an immaculate HR sedan in Lurline blue with a white roof. The interior is blue and green and in VCG. It has 55,000 miles on it and gets driven once a month.

I have three options;

1) replace with original moulded black rubber flooring from all carpets with logos etc in black and obviously have black rubber floors ($900)

Fuel gauge is stuck on full

Hey guys,
Ive recently bought a 1976 Holden HQ with 202 six cylinder.
it runs perfectly but the only problem is that the fuel gauge is stuck on full whenever you turn the key to ignition, I've made sure the sender is grounded to the chassis but it didn't seem to work all the wiring is working but we don't know what else it could be.
do you guys have and suggestions?

hz petrol tank sender installation

gday all,

can any of you boys pls advise if there's any tips-and-tricks
with installing me new (ie. reconditioned) petrol tank sender?

i'm using the same o-ring coz the one i got with the reco
job was too thin and wouldnt seal. i'm just gonna turn it
upside down.

i tried getting a new, nitrile o-ring from cbc bearings but none of them were thick enough. i tried 4 different sizes..

someone told me to apply a liddle bit of silcone sealer,
then fit the retainer locking washer/ring.

any ideas boys?

bij.

In lockdown

I had a doctor's appointment today. They rang and told me not to come in, he will ring me.
I can't leave the house until this virus problem is over. I can't even go for a ride on my pushie.
My problem is that I have no adrenal glands. Your adrenal glands produce cortisol, which regulates your immune system through your stress response.

Take Dem out of Pandemic

Hi From Perth

Lets recap what's happening - Holden shuts and we all die.

Yeh but Nah - I've been thinking about how shinny my HR will be in a months time, the mag wheels metal polished and all the little bits and pieces I have been putting off for years will be done.

Then I will start on my nest Holden project trying to spend no money - like fixing up old bits on my FJ Holden as there's no better time to be rust converting or sand blasting - what a great time to get old Holden's fully operational as they will be worth heaps in years time.

Performance Engine Cranks

Did the early X2 crankshafts have any machining differences (larger fillets etc) to the standard crankshafts, given that all cranks were forged/steel pre Feb 1967.

Cheers, Mick.

Camshaft ID

Hi Folks, can anyone help identify these random camshafts?
I suspect they're pretty standard as the lift measures around.220"
One has JM252 marked on the end and looks like a 202 cam that's been reground.
The other is a non 202 I suspect because it doesn't have the cut outs. It has an S stamped at the end.
Be nice if it was an original 186S cam but I have no idea.
Thanks Dave

202 rockers tapping on cover - What sorta cam lift would do that?

Hey fellas,

I've recently rebuilt an old 202 at 40thou, and it's got an unknown camshaft in it. I've ran a red head on there with adjustable rocker gear, but more recently switched to a 12 port head with fixed rockers. Both heads I'd had issues with rockers hitting underneath the rocker covers and impingement marks were evident. I've used factory red, then black rocker cover and even an aftermarket redline one to no avail using 2 x rocker cover gaskets. I've since just bought an aussiespeed tall rocker cover, but my question is this:
