HG VAN FRONT SUSPENSION

My Van is a 5/70 HG, Body number 1A Chassis HG00013A and when cleaning the front suspension while dismantled for a rebuild I found an 'X' stenciled on the top surface a little to the Drivers Side of centre as well as 'AM' stenciled on the PS in front of the engine mount. My HG Ute also has 'AM' stenciled on it. Can anyone shed any light on why these stencils are there? Particularly the 'X'? I have only ever seen part numbers on them.

Paint Colour

Hi guys.
Been a long time since Iโ€™ve been on here...

Iโ€™m after some paint info for an FJ.
My paint code is 253-16321.
When doing a google search on the dulux colour 6321 it comes back as a brown colour. I rang dulux and on their record sl it have 3 options. One is a baby blue colour, and then two brown colours.
Can anyone give me a colour for this.

Cam change with engine still in car?

Hey guys, Just wondering if it's possible to do a cam, lifters and timing chain swap on a HJ Statesman without pulling the engine?
Thanks for any advice.

Front Brakes(LHS and RHS) of HZ '78 Sedan Locked On

Hi Everyone, I've got a '78 HZ sedan with a 202 trimatic. When I pressed the brake I found that both the LHS and RHS brakes locked on. The only way they would release was when I released the pressure via the bleed screw. Thought it was the clearance between the booster and the master cylinder. No. Then I thought it was a blockage in the brake master cylinder. No. Then I thought it was the pistons stuck in the front brake calipers. No. I then pulled apart the proportioning value and found it was completed blocked up with gunk, had a torn o-ring and seized up.

202 Auto stammering in gear and running rough.

So I've got a 202 blue with a trimatic behind it. Running a varajet manifold and using an adaptor plate for the carbie. I'd had this issue where the motor was stammering, like there was some kinda major miss going on there, but in park or neutral it didn't seem as bad "although I'm sure it was still happening". It was running bloody rough as guts! Today I thought I'd really investigate it. Thought of what possible probs could be going on so I:

Installed brand new manifold gasket and tightened the guts out of it! - No difference!

HJ front end alignment issue

Hello, I have just replaced all front end steering and braking components and the drivers side wheel now sits on an angle when the steering wheel us straight.... at first I thought this was just a simple wheel alignment fix, but the more I look at it, it could be a wrongly adjusted tie rod on the drivers side?

Do you guys think I should remove the tie rod and shorten the length to pull the wheel straight?
Thanks

Black Friday Sale

Yesterday morning I bought two slabs of beer on sale at the local Bottle shop,
I placed them on the front seat and headed back home.
On the way home I stopped at a service station to get some petrol,
where a drop-dead gorgeous blonde was filling up her car at the opposite bowser......

Although it was very cold she was wearing a very short skirt
and a light jacket which was wide open.....
She spied my beer on the front seat
and then bent over and knocked on my passenger window....

Removing HK tail light

Any one here removed a HK tail light? I have removed the nuts but the sealant is holding it on tight. I don't want to damage the paint by prying them off. Any Ideas? Thanks

Mystery Litchfield tool

Anyone still have a Litchfield catalogue handy? I am trying to identify this tool, may not even be automotive. It is basically a 1" bar which can be lengthened/ shortened using the ring spanner. The ends are chisel- shaped, and they look like they have been brazed to something sometime. It is around 1 metre long when assembled, and looks like it is for some heavy-duty expanding or shrinking (subframes/suspension?). The only thing I can think of is for expanding the suspension towers (like on a HQ), when the tops are too close together.
