could be a rear demister switch or electric aerial

power antenna

thats the correct place for the power antenna switch, or rear demister, or even power tailgate in the wagon, if it's in a sedan & is original, is the antenna in the rear 1/4 on the passinger side, or has one been there??

manual choke

Thanks for the info Kev, but as my hj is a panel van the hole wouldn`t be for any of those so I guess I could either blank it off or just put a switch in there.

Choke hole.

My HJ has the same, also has the choke cable in it, only used as a fast idle as the triples start ok cold.

They don't make em like they used too!
