HR

Cold start

Evening guys,

A newbie to the older cars. Probably been covered somewhere before but cold starts....
I'm used to driving brand new cars so the old HR is difficult.
I struggle to start it when cold and it takes along time.
Any tips?
Choke? Number of pumps of accelerator? Get the carb tuned?

Cheers guys

Fremantle 1960s Day

Image: 

Hi Guys - I took Henry the HR to a 1960's car day held in Fremantle a few
weeks ago - they blocked off the roads.

It was a great day out - pre 1970's cars parked all the way down high street
and in the adjoining car parks.

We all got together at 2pm and did a historic car bog lap which was awesome.

G'Day everyone. Just joined old holden.com last night and must say what a fantastic concept. I'm looking to buy an electronic distributor for a 186S. Does anyone have any tips, recommendations or warnings on what to buy or not to buy? Thanks

Special HRs

My HR found a new special friend on Saturday night.

Great fun cruising around Perth with a bunch of Monaro's and Torana's.

HD/R disc brakes stub axles & steering arms for T

Tim I some disc brake stub axles & steering arms, now there's a common misconception that drum brake & disc brake steering arms are different but that's untrue as they are the same!

info on HR Premier X@

Evening guys, been quite awhile since I've been on here but would like to ask quick question. How can I tell a genuine HR Premier X2 from just a normal HR? I/m looking at swapping my LS1 WH Statesman Caprice for a HR Prem X2. I've got to go check the car but know nothing about them. I'm pretty sure it's a 186 auto and twin carbs, has the optional extra under dash aircon.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Cheers Ray
