308

Block ID.

Hi guys!
Cheers for the add to your group.

My brother has just picked up a VH commodore with a HG 308 block. Nov 11 70. (L110)

There are some other numbers on the side after the 308H30###.
There's a space then possibly L867
Would anybody be able to help us out with them last letter and numbers? Could be 4867.

Thanks heaps!

Mick.

HT Power Steering Clearance

Hi All

Been a while...so long so my sign in doesn't seem to work.

I'm just reaching out to the you all to ask if anyone knows if HT V8's had a different sump between manual and power steering options? We have had power steering in our HT (out of a Brougham) for the last 15 years with all working well and all of a sudden we have been pulled up on the PS Ram touching the bottom of the sump. The only thing to have occurred to the car since it was put in is new engine mounts about 4 years ago which I would have thought if anything would have lifted the engine up?

Holden HX One Tonner Ute

Hi everybody. I have a few questions to ask.

I'm after a ol' one tonner ute like my father used to have back in the day. I've come across an opportunity that I don't think I can pass up, but i've never driven one of these "old" utes before.

It's a 1976 HX One Tonner, original 308 rebuilt with t5 turbo and an immaculate rust free chassis. Auto column shifter.

I would plan on using it as a daily driver, only highway k's though. Is this even a good idea?

Hz van Disc rear brakes

Hey guys and girls

I need to upgrade the rear brakes on the pano and I have heard that you can fit vn - vs ( boarg Warner) rear brakes to a hz large Salisbury.
Is this true???
Has anyone on here done this conversion?
Is it worth it or should I try and find disc brakes from a statesman or similar
Thanks in advance

Which Alternator HT v8?

took my alternator in to the auto electricians to replace. Apparently they don't just bolt in anymore. Mine is an old style with the pronged plastic pin at the top with an external regulator and will need some wiring done because the new ones only have an internal regulator. I don't know electric stuff but just wanted to know is the the best way these days? Apparently better and more reliable. They don't rebuild them anymore apparently

I was wondering if someone could provide some clarification please

I’m looking at a torana lx ss L31 M21 the VIN NUMBER in the centre of the chassis and the GM plate LX8VD77 -all number match -

the ADR COMPLIANCE PLATE BLX021978M and the chassis match

Does the vin number need to match the chassis number ? So i essence all numbers need to be the same if can u have as it is and still be an original car?
