Speedo not working, any ideas?

I have converted my HX Kingswood sedan from 202 auto to 253 with trimatic auto. My speedo was initially working but has since stopped. The cable itself appears intact but the little gear which meshes with the worm drive in the transmission seeems to be loose, I found it loose in the transmission when I was looking at it earlier, lucky to recover it. I havnt changed the diff, do I need a different little gear or cable.

Dash & Interior Modifications

I am at present looking into having my GTS Dash slightly modified and possibly a retrim of the interior for my HZ. Being a new comer to the world of car restoration I was wondering if anyone had contacts in melbourne that could help me.

I would basically like to re-vamp my dash lights and taco sets so that they are more visible and attractive than the standard hard to see green. Is this possible and does it require expert attention or is it possible for a home job?

HZ Panelvan Petrol Tank Dilemas

Recently purchased a HZ 78 model Panelvan. Seem to be having problems with the petrol tank.

When purchasing the car, I was informed by the previous owner that there was no overflow valve hooked up and for this reason the tank would leak petrol if filled above three-quarters of a tank.

On inspection the overflow is hooked up, and that tank does not appear to bear any marks, dents, or holes. I am at loose ends as of what the problem is, although friends inform me it is common.

HZ/X/J Statesman Wrecking/Front

Righto - Here's the deal. I've got this great old HZ Panelvan (gotta luv em!) I picked her up cheap after returning home from a few years travelling overseas...which means she ain't in showroom nic, but she does turn the odd head!!! I'm after a Statesman front or vehicle for wrecking, I'm mainly interested in the braking system, electrics, dash and nose cone....and I'm having a damn hard time finding them for under a million dollars!!! I'm also after a 5-speed manual I can bolt onto the back of my 253....Perhaps a VB/VC Commodore 5 speed if they had them?
