HR wagon needing a home

Hi,
I am an executor of the will of my father in law who has recently passed away
He has an HR wagon in the garage that hasn't been driven in 25 or so years.
It is in original condition and was driven in there.
I only found this site searching for information about prices etc and am wondering if this is an appropriate site to advertise it as I don't see a link for that. Any information would be appreciated.
Cheers
Jim

EH Engine Issue - advice needed :-(

After over 30 years of ownership I have given my EH a treat and reconditioned engine,gearbox, diff, brakes and suspension. All work was done by professionals as my ability is a little limited.
After all that I am left with an issue with the engine.
This is what we did.....
-rebore to 186
-new pistons, bearings etc.
-'stage 1 ' cam whatever that means
-bigger valves with hard seats for unleaded
-original cast headers
-electronic ignition
-Holley 350 on alum manifold

After a little rework the engine was running sweet and strong.

HG wagon tailgate

Calling 68surfwagon
Could anyone please send me pictures of the HK, HT or Hg tailgate, outer rubber, setup for the wind up window.

I've been told that they don't make them anymore but they are a piece of stainless steel, bent, to form a u shape.. then that is screwed to the tailgate and the rubber is wedged in between the bent part. and the other edge rubs against the glass

yes a loose description but I expect a picture would explain it better.

I have two tail gates and neither have this part

Thanking you in advance
Kel

Hg Holden heater/demister

Just took a hg kingswood over the pits and part of the list given back is having a demister that works and blows warm air. The demister used to be quite strong however never blew warm air and has since stopped working. It has a heater box in place however all of the hoses running to the engine are blanked off. Will simply connecting these provide warm air for the demister? How do I go about troubleshooting a demister that does not work?

HG 186 Trimatic to Manual

Hi All.
My HG Van now has the sub frames reattached and the front suspension will go back in next week.
It was last fitted with 186 trimatic but should be 161 and 3 on the tree. I have a 161 already but don't have a manual column and pedal box along with the clutch, gear linkages and 3 speed box.

Hey guys can somebody please help me. Just freshly rebuilt my 192 (186) and I've primed everything as I've built it. I've gone to crank her over to start the initial break in process and my gauge doesn't even rise to the first small notch (gauge in picture) it gets about half way to the first notch when running and stays there.
