X2 Twin Strommies

Were the twin carbies fitted to the X2 179 and 186 engines the same as the single carby used on the stock engines, but with venturi restrictors and re-jetted, or were they a carby with a smaller sized venturi?

Cheers, Mick.

HR parts search

I've been searching for parts for my HR rebuild. Found this on Gumtree, been sitting in a Garage for 20 years waiting for me so I bought the whole car. Only engine and gearbox missing. A treasure trove for me! Got it for a third of what all the individual parts are worth. All usual rust spots done, subframe & crossmember in excellent condition.

Been looking for HR parts for my rebuild. So expensive and most ex East. Suddenly found a complete body with spares. Been in a garage for 20 years. A treasure trove for me! Rust free body and subframe. Picked it up on the weekend.

Build date HR Premier

Hi, just wondering if anyone can help with a build date on a HR Premier I’m buying, Number on fire wall is HR 50556 A. ( Adelaide plant I believe)
Body number is HR 235 3460-A
In addition this vehicle has a 186P motor which is believed to be the oginal by the family but researching tells me is was the regular motor used for HK. I’m told some may have been put into HRs late in 1967? Anyway, any help would be much appreciated. Aaron

Skin Check

It was the day before one of my old mates Don's funeral a
few weeks ago. I looked at a red skin spot on my shoulder
and thought it was now time to get it checked out.

That was not the one - which was a Melanoma - I couldn't see
it on my back, which was luckily early stage (cut out fine).

Another month or so cancer would have gone through my body.

The Angel of Death obviously didn't like the turquoise green
colour of my old HR - is this weeks thought of the day.
