Some early EH had AC instruments, which changed to VDO during the model run.
The 179 was originally only available with the Hydromatic gearbox.
The early manual cars had a gearbox identical to the EJ. I believe he very early manual cars were all 149 and also had a smaller clutch than the later cars. These smaller clutches were usually replaced with the larger 179 clutch when they wore out. The large 179 clutch became standard fitment across the range with the introduction of the S$.
The S4 introduced the larger manual gearbox bell housing bolt pattern in the gearbox and that was carried through to the HK.
The S4 also used the larger diameter tailshaft from the Hydromatic Premier.
The S4 was the first EH with a manual gearbox behind the 179. The larger bolt pattern gearbox and bigger tailshaft becaome standard fitment in 179 manual EH Holdens.
The S4 had a 12 gallon fuel tank. Unfortunately this wasn't carried through to all 179 cars. It would surely be good seller if Rare Spares did a reproduction tank.
