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.

HR Heater Hoses

Morning guys,

That time of the year has come around again when the old heater needs to be used in the HR. Im having the heater core re-done but I'm struggling to find which heater hoses I need.
Will need both the heater tap (original near inlet manifold) to heater, and heater to water pump hoses.

Does anyone have any links etc? Cant seem to find them on Rare Spares site.

Thanks in advance.

Another old mod...

A HG grille and later H series tail lights in a HR ute.

You have to use a HD front pan to get the blinkers.

5 speed celica box?

I bought a HR premier sedan with a nice 186 engine and backed up with a celica 5 speed (cast iron)my problem is the gears are crunchy when the car is driven for about 3/4 kilometres. I have replaced both clutch master/slave cylinders, checked adjustments, still the same when it gets warmed up. Any ideas how to fix?

possible export hr

hello i have a hr special sedan and it has a few odd things that i cant work out,its pretty much all original, but it has a ball joint front end with drum brakes, it has never had a heater fitted, not even the leavers in the cab, it has a factory white roof, but its the same colour as the rest of the car under the white, it has the premier chrome strip under the back window and the windscreen squirter motor sits on top of the wiper motor, it had some sort of decal on the tappet cover and ive never heard a red motor that sounds anything like it, it has a spacer plate between carb and manifol

Pinion angles

Morning everyone,

What's the easiest way to ensure these are correct. I overhauled the springs and bushes in the HR and had the diff loosened off and had to guess what angle it went back on. Stock standard HR 3 speed manual with original diff and tail shaft with 2" lowering blocks.

Thanks in advance!!

Cheers

Carb balance Tool

Anyone used one of these?

http://www.ebay.com....

Thought it would be good with twin carbs setting idle revs and mixture.

Cheers

HR Radio

Hi T - Here is the HR Special Air Chief Radio photo.

Doesn't look as good as the 1966 sales brochure.

The tranny is however not connected to the 2 Farad
voltage capacitor, amp and sub behind the premier arm
rest (stereos in the glove box!).

HR Air Chief Radio

Hi T

For the Radio Page you should put in the HR Air chief
Radio image from page 15 of the 1966 HR Sales brochure
which I posted a few weeks ago.

Did you want me to take a photo of my HR Special air
chief - which looks identical to the advert image with
the HR special silver dash?
