HR Tyres

I've got some quite old (20 year old) tyres on my HR and they are looking hard and have a few cracks in the tread - also 4 different tyres - so thinking of getting a new set...originals were 6.5 x 13 - which equates to 165/80 in metric...can get a good deal (Bridgetsone at $61 each fitted) on 175/70s - which are a common size now...is anyone using this size on their stock HR and do they seem ok re profile? They would be 3.2% less in diameter...185/70 is closer in overall profile but less common and not as good price..

HR Holden Numbers of different types

From what I can determine about 252,000 HRs were produced - I'm interested to know what was the % of Standards, Specials and Premiers - does anyone know or have a fairly good idea? Were the panel vans and utes only produced as Standards with options?

Help on which spark plug for a red 202

I'm servicing my recently purchased HR with a red 202 (QL code block) so figured I'd just replace the spark plugs as part of that and thought it should be as easy as taking out a spark plug then buying another set of the same.

The existing plugs have carbon build up on the thread. They are NGK-BP5EFS.

I just would have thought only the head should extend into the combustion chamber and not the thread or am I wrong?

Thoughts on best method for Sale for my Original HR Holden

I recently posted a request for advice of what I should do with my HR Holden that needs to be moved from where it has been stored for the last 20 years. I am the second owner. I just drove from the ACT to Lismore and back to get some quick photos. I am obviously looking to maximize it's sale value. But that currently is based on too many factors for me to be able to make a reasonable decision about, and I am a reasonable man. Having viewed it, it needs at least a clean. I am going to place some photos up on the vehicle and your advice would be appreciated.

Finally the engine coming together. About 12 months to find a virgin Block, six months waiting for Pistons etc. Still it'll be worth the wait when I put the foot down on that first drive.

HR 50th rebuild

My Xmas presents finally arrived. New V6 conversions IFS for my HR & a Supra 5 Speed. Got the brake booster & Rack end kit. Got a rebuilt VS power steering rack. VS stub axles etc. Been a good few months but finally all here. My engine is still being built so got to be patient. At least I can start taking the old girl apart. Lots of fun ahead!

Weird Holden HR Body Code

Hi all, my HR body code is a bit strange. It doesn’t say what transmission it had. It is HR2106-3367S
Basically, it says it’s a Ute, and it is but it says it is the 33rd made in Sydney, and made in 67, which doesn’t make much sense.
