W50 into HR Sedan

Thinking about a W50 steel case 5 speed into my HR Sedan. What mods need to be done to the floor/tunnel? Anyone done the conversion before? It has a Trimatic in now & was previously a Powerglide.

HZ Kingswood Dash High Beam light

Hi, I am having trouble solving a dash light issue HZ Kingswood 202,3 Sp man. The light is the Blue High Beam indicator on the dash. It does not work, so first I checked all fuses with test light, OK, then after some other testing decided to replace the globe, dash unscrewed, globe replaced, didnt work, then I thought maybe the carrier, so swapped with one I know is working, still not working. The other lights work, oil, brake, alt and indicators.

Any guidance would be appreciated. Richard

VN Auto into HR Premier Sedan

Planning on putting a VN (Pre electronic) TH700 Auto into my HR Sedan. Was wondering about any problems with the Tunnel & Fire wall. I have done a bit of research and looked at the V6 Conversion web site. They say only slight modification. But that is with a V6 motor. Mounting may be slightly different. I want to stay with my 202. Anyone got any info?

HR 50th Anniversary rebuild

I have been planning this for more than 5 years. Took her off the road in 2012, been on Jack stands since then. Now its time to do it. I have owned my HR since I was 19, that was 1979. Rebuilt a couple of times over that time period. Never been happy with promised engine output. Now to do it properly. After several months of trying to find a std bore 202 I finally found one! Needless to say I now have 5 202/3.3 blocks of all colours......So now my engine build can begin. Planned JZED head, lots of internals, EFI Hardware injection, four wheel discs & 5 speed.

1975 HJ Kingswood Vacationer 2 - Perth

Recently I purchased my first steel bumper and also new to the forum, in the process of getting it back to clean stage, not quite a restore, but near on. I've done a fair bit of research on the vacationers, even had called Holden so they send out a certificate of authenticity, but would still like to know more behind this car, bought it in a not bad condition, after spend $1500 at rare spares (pretty quick) I've got it to a stage that it looks pretty bling. Set of 20mm white walls and pedders torana springs to lower abit.

New to old cars: should i go all gas

Hi All

I need to seek some advise.
I have just acquired a 1984 WB panelvan, mostly in original condition, 3.3L blue motor, 3 speed Auto on column.
Just picked van up after first road worthy attempt. Van is dual fuel, gas and petrol. Runs rough on petrol, good on gas.
Has almost all the emission fitting missing.
Speaking with mechanic, I asked is it better to go Gas only, no need for emission fittings. Would need to remove all petrol tank, pump, hoses etc.

Hi,

I took a look at a HR for sale today thanks to a lead from another member here. She needs some work, but perhaps it's priced right.
