Early Holden bucket seats

Hello all ....
I have a pair of early Holden seats that I was going to use in my EH but have now decided to stay with the bench. I am going to advertise these for sale.
Can anyone tell by the photos what model they may have come from. Just want to know so I can make the add as accurate as possible.
thanks

EH radiator conversion

Have posted about my EH having overheating probs, when stationary or under load. Have done everything that was suggested, head coming off next week, to be crack tested, although there has been no indication of water and oil mixing, and cleaning/flushing water jacket. Fitting a HQ V8 radiator has also been suggested, what needs to be done to fit same, I would imagine dimensions would be different, presently running STD 202 with trimatic

Pig Oinks 308

Asked earlier about centre caps WTB to fit 68mm centre bore, preferably screw on. Read Pigs article on polishing rims, helped heaps. My question, where did you buy your centre caps back then Pig and still interested if anyone out there has some to sell, consider clip ons.
Thanks again, Arch.

Centre caps 😒

Can anyone help out with tidy, used caps to suit? 2 rims have holes drilled for screw on, 2 push on, prefer screw on type if lucky. Thanks in advance, Arch.

What sort of cost for a resto on a fairly good classic holden?

If I was to Take an eh for example only, in a fairly clean condition to have it fully done by professionals? what do you rekon it would cost, just a rough figure. My Old Uncle asked me to build his eh I told him the truth that it could cost upto 25k he said I was going to rip him off? I offered to do it free no labour but it would still cost that much for parts paint and trim. thanks ahead. cheers.

EH crasg box wanted

A mate is after a crash box from an early 149 EH (EJ bellhousing bolt pattern) or later EH-HK box with bellhousing.
He has to recondition a box for a customer's EH so any gearbox with good gears and selectors would be OK. Second gear in the customer's gearbox is past it, and possibly the selector.
Possibly an EJ box even so he could build one from the two.
Preferably reasonably close to Port Macquarie, NSW but anything considered.
Phone David (not me) on (02)6559 9167 during business hours.

Tired 186

The 186 in our EH is getting very tired. It rattles and spits oil out the breather cap (small breather instead of PCV as well as breather cap).
Driven hard at something like a lap dash or khanacross or just having a fang it goes all day without a problem.
On the highway at a constant 2800rpm (100-110ks) it will randomly lose power and not want to rev at all, it just maintains it's 2800rpm and no more. Pull over, turn it off, start it and it will take off as if it never had a problem until it plays up again, maybe in 20 minutes, maybe not for a couple of days.

EH generator wanted

Does anyone have an EH generator for sale? A bloke asked Nathan if he knew where he could get one.
I suggested an alternator conversion but apparently the bloke wants to keep his EH original.

S4 in EH workshop manual

I've got one the black EJ/EH Holden workshop manuals.
On the 5th page of the EH supplement my manual lists the specifications of the S4.
I have read that Holden rushed out a special run of manuals with the S4 specs to prove the S4 was actually a production model so it could qualify for the 1963 Armstrong race.
Does anyone know if the S4 information was shown in all the EH manuals printed after August 1963 or was it just a one off run to keep the Armstrong scrutineers happy?

EH Electrical Re-Visited

Hi all Just an update the problem with my EH wagon now seems to be solved. The problem was with 2 wires shorting internally with each other, the yellow for rear brake lights and the black for parkers and number plate light, they have been removed and replaced with new wires of the same colour and the lights are all working as they should. Thank you all for your suggestions and help it was all much appreciated.

Cheers

And advice would be appreciated
Thanks

seatbelt positions on an EH Sedan

Hey Cats

I am looking to get a blue slip in NSW for a QLD car.
Because of the additions I need to have all seats with seatbelts. Does anyone have recommendations or a picture on where they mounted their inertia seat belts?

My front ones are mounted on the pillar - but these will need to be changed apparently because they are bolted thru the pillar

Sheesh

Any ideas?

Many thanks Adam
