Old EH Van In A Mag

Hi People

I know this is a long shot but im trying to find a copy of either Street Machine or Van wheels with my dads car in it for his birthday.
Its a Blue HR from VIC with statesman front end and was in the mag in about 83 or 84. Its bloody hard to find any details and i dont want to ask him because he misses the car so much and i dont want him to know why im looking for it. As i said its a long shot but you never know what you might find. Thanks in advance

electrical issue with indicators

HI, can I please get some opinions on my electrical problem.
I hope its just a cactus indicator can (which I cant find with a quick search)
one green indicator stays on, on my dash, and both rear indicators stay on.
this is when I have turned off and taken key out.
if I move the indicator stick it turns one or the other rear light off.
does it sound like a real problem or just look harder for the can and replace it?

I have replaced both clutch master/slave cylinders, checked adjustments, still the same when it gets warmed up. Any ideas how to fix?

WANTED: HR Steering box & column

G'day all,
It's been quite some time since I've been on here, the HR has barely changed though.

Does anyone have a HR steering box and column?
SE QLD (I'm in Beenleigh)

Preferably complete and assembled - doesn't need to look pretty.
Needs to have no cracks in the outer steering column housing.
Mine's split pretty bad across the gear change hole near the steering box.

Cheers
Dec

Celica gear box Fitted to a HG

Hi,
Have just brought a HG panel van with a celica steel case gearbox, but on close examination have found that the floor strengthening support has been cut away to fit it.
I have chased down a new support frame and gear box hump to weld in and replace the original.

As I would still like to use a Celica box and found that there a number of gear lever exit positions from the gear box.

Is there a Celia gear box with the gear lever far enough forward that I do not have to cut the frame again or is there a way of modifying the frame to accept mine or both.

HR Holden

Hello,
I have a 66hr ute and it had a power guide trans with column shift. I am changing the trans to a trimatic no problem. I am also moving the shift selector from the steering column to a floor mounted shift select. The floor mount I am using is from a late holden statesman. I have made an raised adapter and a special center console to hid all the workings.
My question is has anyone attempted this before and if so please share your frustration's with me.
David

HR Sedan - 13 x 7 rims

Hi everyone,
Just joined the group and will probably pester you all from time to time for some advice / tips . So thanks in advance .
I just got myself a HR sedan late last year and would love to keep the original look going . I used to run widened rims on a HR ute I had years ago . Pretty sure I had 6's on the front with 205/60's and 7's on the back with 225 / 60's . I would like to do the same with the sedan except run the same width all round so I can rotate tyres .

Oil pump

Got the EH back with the new clutch and it's all good, almost.
Every now and then over the last month or so my oil pressure would drop.
When I took it over to get the clutch done it dropped down to a steady 20PSI. It's usually 40PSI hot.
When I drove it home I had no pressure at all. I assumed it was the gauge.
I checked all the wires (electric gauge) and the fuse. The gauge and sender are Speco, about 6 years old.
There is plenty of oil in the motor.
The sender is not leaking.

Red 186

Hi all. I was given a old red 186 by my late best mate some years ago and as I now have some spare time I would like to bring this motor back to life. When it was given to me I was told it had a yella terra head. Upon removing the head I found that the valves are stamped yt which is a good thing. The motor can be easily turned over by hand. It came with twin stromberg carbies and alloy gears and I was also told that the camshaft is an XU1 street grind??
