Holdenpaedia, they're the brakes Mate.

I'm suspecting it would have been originally neoprene and not rope. Years ago I had the seal replaced on my HZ 308 Statesman and that was the type fitted. Looking at a HX repair manual for a 6 cyl it only shows the neoprene seal and so does the HQ 308 repair manual I have. So that would be my guess...prob not a lot of help. I replaced the RMS on my HR 161 and it was also the neoprene type - it still leaked a bit - but not a lot after I replaced it. Before it was terrible. At first i was a bit disappointed I didn't get a perfect result - but then I thought about it - the original totally untouched 50 year old engine - crank and bearings - I was possibly expecting too much....

HX 308 should have a rope seal. Check the date code on the block.
