Rust Converter

Used an aerosol rust converter on some raw steel rims after I stripped them back to paint.
They were nice and smooth and it seems the rust converter has gone blotchy. Has anyone had this problem before?
Might have to give them a light sand before I etch prime them.
TIA

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.

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.

HR heater electric Tap

HR Holden Special with a fan forced heater has been disconnected. Took the heater out to pressure check and have the following questions.
The engine has a heater tap from head which connects to a cable under the bonnet and circulates the coolant when open etc.
There also seems to be another electronic tap like that in the picture.... what does this do? It's seems to be connected to a wire which goes into heater box??
Cheers

HR 1966 Shop Manual

Hi from Perth.

Found the manual I'd been looking for a while.

My mate Dave (has a torana & stato) and I were at
a Car Part car boot sale in Perth on the weekend.

Anyway got a good FJ instrument cluster, good HR
rear view mirror.

But the HR was falling apart so put in a large
white envelope in a pile of other manuals.

I have my mate Dave to thank as I never saw it.

Trimatic box, Powerglide shift

Hi,

Mate has a HR which has been converted to a trimatic gearbox but has the 2 speed column shift auto still attached.

The gearbox is thus not connected.

What is required to link the two together?

Thanks in advance for your help

HR Clutch

Hi all, about a year ago I replaced the clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing on my HR. All has been well since. The clutch plate didn't look too bad but it was slipping badly so I suspect the old pressure plate was the culprit.

HR Questions

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.

Some questions / food for thought from the collective brains trust here;

Converting a HR from manual to auto

I'm currently in the market for a HR and all I seem to across is manuals and after losing my right leg in an accident I am no longer able to drive manuals.

If I were to buy a manual, how hard is it and how much can I expect to pay for a conversion to a powerglide or other auto?

Many thanks.

Jason

HR picnic radio fitment

Hi everyone.

Does someone know the correct fitting position for the Air Chief picnic radio and cradle, specifically for HD HR models..?

I've added a picture of this radio in the cradle.

It looks like it should go under dash, but if it was made specifically for the HD HR, then I thought it would have had a special or more blending fitment.

Does anyone have a copy of the original fitting or brochure that might explain..?

Thanks people.
