The best thing about driving an old Holden

Is the nodd of appreciation that we give each other as we cruise. The throngs in their mass produced plastic cars with half degrees of separation just don't understand. Just the other day I was driving with my brother in law (a die hard subaru fan) and he was so surprised that each of the five pre 80's holdens just cruised past all acknowledged me - even if it was a simple staunch raise of the eybrows.

Keep it up lads.

WB Throw Out Bearing Carrier

I've converted my HZ utes bellhousing from the old rabbit-trap assy to a newer WB cable bellhousing assy.

I want to replace the thrust race bearing and the throw out bearing carrier.

It seems that you can only buy the ceramic carrier and bearing now days.

Does anyone know where I can get a hold of the original item. As in STEEL! If anyone has second hand bits that are in good condition, or knows where I can source them from it would be greatly appreciated. Im in Sydney.
