Joe

Evening all, first time poster
I have a 67 HR Special and am in the middle of working out how the washer pump operates.
With wipers on it pumps fine, however once it gets to the flat spot on the lower washer pump gear, nothing will get it back to pumping unless I physically turn the wheel for it to lock in again. Could this be a problem with the solenoid or is there something else I'm not seeing.

Any help greatly appreciated

Another X2 four speed

I was talking to an old bloke about EH utes today and he told me of a one owner HR ute farmer friend owns.
His farmer friend has owned it from new and it has had a 186 X2 motor with the Opel four speed and bucket seats from new. He has known the farmer for many years and doesn't doubt that it is factory original. He said it definately doesn't have the two barrel stromberg on it. It has the X2 badges on the grille.
I don't doubt what the old bloke told me. He has a lifetime of mechanical experience including many years working in Holden.

Ideas on my HR build date? - HR73814M

Hi

Trying to figure out approximately when my car was built. I find it a funny thing today to not be able to trace back to a build date for something as substantial as a car, but then again times were simpler in so many ways back then....

Motor and gearbox have been swapped out. Unknown regarding steering column so won't trust whatever that number says.

Chassis ID is HR73814M so I know it's from Melbourne and I know there were a tad over 250k built in total but not sure when ~74k from Melbourne would put it date wise...

Cheers for any help.

HR wagon seat belt mount position

Hi all,

I'm working on a HR rebuild with my Dad (the original Old Holden guy ;)

We're putting three-point seat belts into the back seats, but we're not sure where to attach the top mount of the seat belts.

Has anyone put these belts into a HR (or similar model) wagon, and be willing to share advice or photos of how this was done?

Thanks very much all.

Cheers,
JB
