Ht brougham dash

Hi guys,

I bought a 1969 HT brougham about 2 years ago. I’ve been doing research on it for a while. They’re pretty rare so getting info on them seems to be a bit hard. I think it might have some rare options as I can’t seem to find any pictures or info of cars that are the same. Maybe I’m looking in the wrong places.

It’s got cloth and vinyl bucket front seats with small headrests(perhaps they’re just high back) and a centre console. Also on the r/h side it’s got water temp and oil pressure gauges where there normally seems to be nothing on other cars.

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...)?

HJ Door seals

Hi Crew. I am replacing the RHF door seal and can't for the life of me push the little xmas tree retainers into the inserts. Is there a special tool or technique? or do you not use the inserts? It is all Rare spare parts.

Thanks,
Sore thumbs

Dodgy starter motor?

Hey guys, went to start the 308 this morning and head out for a cruise. Turned the key and all I got was a few soft knocking sounds and then nothing. Might have been very weak efforts at cranking?

Battery read 12.39V has new dizzy, leads, coil, plugs and was running beautifully the other day?

How do I check for sure that's it's the starter?

Thanks.

HJ front end alignment issue

Hello, I have just replaced all front end steering and braking components and the drivers side wheel now sits on an angle when the steering wheel us straight.... at first I thought this was just a simple wheel alignment fix, but the more I look at it, it could be a wrongly adjusted tie rod on the drivers side?

Do you guys think I should remove the tie rod and shorten the length to pull the wheel straight?
Thanks

Information ref HZ cassette player

Can any one provide info on where the cassette player as an option was fitted to the HZ GTS.

IN the Brochures I have the radio is a white needle in both the Premier and the GTS I'm wondering if like the HX LE Coupe if this optioned was requested was the centre console exchanged for one similar to the coupe and the Statesman Caprice so that the cassette player would be fitted into the space that this console was used for in those models

Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated bearing in mine that I only want restore my car to factory specs/authorised options

wb power steering-WB Holden ute

Greetings all.
I have a slow weepy leak thats coming out of the high pressure hose side of the power steering pump.
Dribbles out and under the pump itself and drops itself straight on top of the rag joint , which is now munted. I have unscrewed the hose for a look thinking that it may have an O ring that is dried out but alas there is no o ring of any sort.
Is there supposed to be an o ring around the threaded end so when its tightened up it seals ?
I spoke to Repco who found a listed part but its only the size of the flared end of the pipe itself.
