Front Wheel Bearings - FJ Holden

G'day all

I've searched the internet to try to find a set of FJ wheel bearings, and it seems they're few and far between. Some sites are saying that 48 (FX) and "early" FJ bearings are the same, and that "late" FJ and FE are the same.

My car was built in July 1954.

Another site says that FX, FJ and early FE are all the same!

They can't all be right!!

My questions are as follows:

1. What (in this case) is an "early" FJ? Would this be the same cut-off date as the "early" FJ wheel bearings (February 1954)?

Correct 186s

How can you tell if a HR Holden with a 186S and Opel 4speed is original fitment, apart from having a 186K engine number? Are there any indicators to verify the originality of these items. Appreciate any help offered.

Freebie

I've got a new early Holden accelerator pedal mount if anyone wants it.
It's the bit on the floor with the two knobs on it for the pedal.
It came with a new pedal we got for the EH years ago, but we never used it.
I believe it's the same bit for all early Holdens.
Free if anyone can use it.

Fuel economy on a holden 202

Hey guys! Just wondering what kinda fuel economy figures you all achieve on the old holden six, ie 202?

I do quite a lot of highway miles and wondering if I can squeeze anymore out of my old 202 powered wagon.

I wouldn't mind knowing how many K's per litre you're achieving and what motor, carbie, gearbox, diff and running gear you're using to achieve those figures.

Heater box repairs

Is it possible to buy the gasket that sits between the heater box and the firewall for HQ-Z Holdens?
I'm also looking for replacement vacuum actuators. Are they still available or is it best to source a similar item (https://www.summitra...)?

FC Sunday run

Up and out onto the road for a blast out to the country
Bluey was all go and settled into the usual Holden gudgeon slapping rythme
She was in her element and apart from odd rattle or two all was well with the world
Nothing is better than a fine sunny day and the old FC humming along
Few pictures attached
