Radiator advice

Hi guys,
Time for a new radiator for my auto 202 HZ. I run air conditioning now. Currently have a 3 row core brass copper (i think they call it an outback pack?). One guy quoted $550, said it was heavy duty off the shelf (not Chinese crap). Another said he wouldn't sell me one off the shelf (because not good enough), but would recommend re-core my existing one with three high quality core, $720.
I live on Central Coast NSW.
Any advice appreciated please.
Thanks,
Todd

Well maintained 1981 Kingswood Panel Van (basically a Sandman) looking for historic rego

I'm looking to get my Sandman registered soon and am planning on joining a club so I can get historic. I'm a pretty young guy living in north western Sydney and I can't guarantee that I would be able to make it to every club meet, so I'm looking for a club that might be suitable club nearby. I've attached a photo of the mighty beast in it's current condition.

starter motor dramas continuance ... grrr

So I thought I had it sorted, car was starting first click every click for the last few weeks, then .... Fkn tick tick tick.. Bloody thing started acting up yesterday.
What I noticed was that the brand new relay (30amp fused 4 pronged relay) i put in to replace the old I figured was faulty, was getting warm to the touch even when the car was not running, ignition off. So I disconnected it and the car starts first click again.
My question is that it has always had a relay there its factory loom leading to it, but what the hell does it do?

HQ Monaro 6 cylinder model

Hi,
I am helping a relative sell a '72 HQ Monaro LS that came from the factory with a 202 and column auto, GTS interior and GTS wheels fitted. Can any help with the production numbers for the '72 HQ Monaro by engine size?
I have read that there are only a few HQ Monaros left in the original 6 cylinder configuration?
Is this correct and does this have an impact on price?
Thanks.

EH bumpers (Rarespares)

Hi All,

Has anyone bought EH front and rear bumpers from Rarespares?
Just wondering the quality, if they actually will fit and align with the original mounting brackets and if they come with all the bolts.
I got no reply from Rarespares after emailing them.

possibly for sale in coming months

I have a 1974 HQ holden station wagon that has been sitting in a garage for a number of years. My mother has now passed away and the car needs to be moved, ie sold.

Problem is, what is a 1974 HQ wagon worth these days. The body is straight with very little, if any rust. A new engine has been fitted and has done less than 2500 km.

Truth of the matter is the car has not been started in years, Without any pics, what is the car worth any ideas?

regards

John

starter motor issues...

ok my 202 has a starter motor issue which is sending me batty..
1: it sometimes starts first click. no worries at all.
2: sometimes it throws out and just clunks without engaging.
3: sometimes it just clicks and I have to tap it.
4: sometimes it just spins without engaging.
5: sometimes it will start 1st click, but if its cold and doesnt stay idling, itll just click and not start.
usually one of these things happen when theres a problem, not every symptom in the book at different times.
