OK, thats it from the front, not looking half as bad as it did before a clean up, this one will likely be fine unless someone can turn up what its off and I'll see if I can get a new one, thanks and I appreciate the welcome , have a bit to learn about all this yet

It looks the same as the panel van mechanism, HQ or thereabouts.

"If your car has quarter vents, a diff at the back, and was available with wind-down windows, you may talk to me.
Otherwise I am not interested. Amen."

The original diecast plate that holds the plunger rods has torn out the plate slot where one of the the rod hooks clip onto it, there isnt anything broken on the pictured one , i'm trying to find out what its off

cant find anything on the lower gate mechs for sale, dont know how far back on previous models they were the same, I cant find any of them anyway,thought for a brief moment there it could be an upper gate mech off a panel van but na, rare spares pic shows the mounting bracket/rod housing mated up back to front with a square slot instead of a splined shaft for the handle, I do keep going back to the handle spline, they are identical, screw thread and all, GMH something or other though?

I have a few different ones in the shed. I'll get some pics later, that might help us identify things..

Hi; I don't know what it's off, but it's not HQ - WB.

I've had the same problem on a HZ, the centre coming apart.

I got pics but forgot to put them up. I got one of those. His is $55 + $10 postage. How'bout $20 posted to your place?

EDIT: Nah, forget that, I don't want the money. Send it to Rusty to help keep the site going, rusty@oldholden.com As soon as he tells me the money's clear I'll send it. (I'm in Melb, so might take a while to get there)
