HQ TH400 shifter cable

I've just installed a 350 chev and TH400 into my 71 HQ Monaro (was 202 & Trimatic) and I purchased a factory cable-operated T Bar shifter to suit the factory console and a new cable from Rare Spares, the shifter fits perfect to the floor and lines up with the console but the cable appears to be too long and extends way past the selector shaft making me doubt it would ever work, the second issue I have is locating a selector lever plate and cable mounting bracket to suit this setup.

Window mechanisms - HQ

Hi.
I've read the post in the Holdenapeadia and am aware that the front windie glass is unique to HQ. My questions are: will HJ+ glass and mechanisms fit into a HQ door; and second, will HQ glass fit into HJ+ mechanism?

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks.

HQ GTS WHEEL INFO

Hi,
I recently purchased a GTS rim ( refer to pics) sight unseen from a friend of a friend and when I picked it up I realised it was way too rare to put on my HX. I have done a little research and have been informed that it is an early 1971 rim with the rare cast centre cap that were recalled due to safety concerns from Holden back in the day. The rim also has a new/ unused period tyre.
Just wondering if the information I have so far is true, if anyone can add to it and what it is worth as I have been told some crazy numbers?
Thank you.

308, Trying to find a rattle

Hi All,

I got my 308 rebuilt, about 2 years ago. Has a Quadrajet, Bosch HEI, edelbrock performer, crane 276, 30 thou flat tops L34 heads always running 98 octane.

It would have all of about 500kms at this point. Starts and runs well. Issue i have is when cruising in 4th (Aussie 4 speed) If i lower the revs then accelerate theres a funny sort of flapping/rattle noise. It dosent sound nasty but it is annoying. I have found that if i accelerate and pull the choke slightly in (manual choke) it stops, but the engine bogs down.
