Re: Link to the net

OldHolden.com is run off a 56 modem (at my place) and a cable account (at a mates place). Now the question has been asked, Does oldholden do that much as the MB are getting maxed out way before the end of the month.(A:YES)
I can see this coming to an abrupt phone call which will be down the lines of...Mate we got to do something about this like last month already !

So, to keep the MB down and my mate away from the switch, here are some ideas....

1. ditch the gallery and most of the stuff that is not used. Just keep the board and maybe update it a bit.

2. ditch the free users pages and club domains ( only kidding, i hope)

3. get some more cable accounts working for us. This can be done with just the account or a quick firewall box at your place(gold coast please)

4. Move oldholden overseas as the MB are cheap. :(
5. Keep it all up and in Australia. I can get great deals in data centers on the Gold Coast. (under 6-7c MB)

Help us work this out. comment or email.

Gday all,

I have a VL and the front seats are pretty tattered after years of use and abuse. I am thinking of getting some replacement seats from a wreckers, but I would like to know if newer model Commodore seats would fit my VL - anyone know?

Cheers!

4 speed auto gear box for EH?

I am wanting ot put a 4 speed auto gearbox into my EH, and retain the original column shift. I want to do this, as at highway speeds the trimatic is too loud, due to the ratio not being low enough.

Is this possible?

Any suggestions?

fuel consumption

what do u guys think a good fuel consumption for a stock standard 87 vl/3.0/efi/auto would be? just some ball park figures.... I am currently getting about 230km per 50L (ie. 22L/100km). is this resonable for a 15 year old commodore or not???? any ideas would be appreciated.
cheers.

EH sedan new rear screens

I thought I would let you know another new screen has been fitted into another EH sedan, and it was spot on.

Using a new rubber it was no problem, with only the top corner moulds being the awkward little things to fit. A few Vic guys are going to get them before the All State Run next year. This one was tinted glass, which is slightly green, like new cars side windows. The glass comes with no stampings if you wish it that way.

Put your order in now from Dave Ryan.
They are not available through Rare Spares outlets.

They are $250.00 and available in clear or tinted. EH Club Vic

David can be contacted at Rare Spares (RSP Australia) in Melbourne on:

HQ rear view mirrors and brakes

Was there a passenger side rear view mirror available for the HQ as original equipment? Sure I can buy a mirror at K Mart but Id like to keep it original.
I'd also like to know about the brake pedal height in relation to the accelerator as a previous caller wanted.
Post it here so we all know.
Many thanks. '

BOTH MY FUEL PUMPS ARE WORKING to the point where the last connection befor the fuel rail spurted petrol everywhere when I loosend it. I have tried two different Air Flow meters neather makes a difference... There is pulse to all the injectors (as tested with trusty LED)so the ECU is working... I am stumped.... It all was running sooooo Smoooooooth till this.
It is always the way Hmmmm.... I hope someone out there knows what is stopping my Beast from cruzin on down the HWY, Please let me know, Thanks as always...

Console

Hello,
Does anyone have a floor console forsale, or knows where i can get one from! I have thought of making one up,but i don know where to start! But that's if it is impossible to get one second hand! I own a HJ Panel Van with a three speed trimatic. I bought the car and have been doing it up, but the car currently only has a T shift coming out of the floor with nothing over it or around it. Also, does anyone know if this is a road worthy issue?

Your ideas will be much appreciated. Cheers...'

M20/21 to 202 red ???

greetings friends
i am thinking that I want to replace my 3 speed column shift with a 4 or 5 speed floor change I know that I can use a Celica steel case box on my 202 and I understand that I would have to use a different bell housing to match the two up but would I have to get my tailshaft shortened as well??? or would a M20 or M21 box fit straight on without any fussing with the length of the tailshaft... thanks for all the help
