Been searching/reading a lot... but does anyone have a am transitter bought off the shelf? Searched a few stores and can't find anything. Want to keep original am radio in car and transmit my iPhone through it. Can only track fm transmitters down.

Cheers in advance

3 on the tree

161 with three speed on the tree. Crunchy first gear. Box is in fantastic condition with very low miles. Engine was recently removed for rear main seal. Fist gear has a slight crunch when entering at low speeds and is worse when trying to engine brake car. Can this be adjusted or is this normal with a crash gearbox?

Cheers

Fluid in footwell

Noticed some fluid in drivers footwell after a long drive in the HR. Brake or clutch most likely the culprit? Didn't have a chance to look at it further but thought I'd check if it's a known problem.

Bench Seat Cover

Can anyone recommend a decent fitting cover for a HR front bench seat? With the hot weather starting I'm thinking of preserving the 50 year old vinyl and son's legs....

Temp Gauge

just wondering how many people are running temp gauges in their old Holden - the models that never had one just the temp light ? On many models (prior to EH) the temp lamp did not have a test or the test eg on start (eg HR) no longer works - so how confident are people that the temp light will come on when required and/or be reliable? Will installing a gauge impact on historical registration - very few mods are allowed in SA - where do people usually put them in their cars if they want it to be useful yet discreet?

Temp Light

decided to take the HR for a run today through hills. It was about 35 degrees. Checked coolant before heading off. Car ran well - considering it's the original 50 year old engine having never been reconditioned or head removed. On way home after about 3 hours I took her up to about 65-70 - whereas she normally feels content about 55. After sometime the temp light came on - so slowly pulled to the side and was prepared to turn engine off an let cool down - but the light went off - so dropped back to 55 and never came on again all way home.

HR Flasher Unit

The indicators on my HR started acting erratically - when the flasher unit was warm. Pulled out the unit - original GMH unit 50 years old. Got ab replacement from Sprints auto for $5.95. I wonder if that will last another 50 years when the car is 100 years old?
