steering shaft

ok guys I need some advice please,
This is a steering shaft out of a HQ -HZ, they are a "collapsible" in the case of a Major Accident, they have a PLASTIC PLUG that goes through the shaft.
Rare Spares don't seem to stock them(couldn't see it on there web site) and cart seem to find anything on e-bay ?
Any help or ideals or alternative option would be much appreciated,

As I always say
Stay Safe all

Kingswood being advertised as Monaro

Hi Readers,

What would you do ?

There is currently a HQ 4 door Kingswood being auctioned online by a private seller as a HQ Monaro. The seller has pics of the ID and VIN tags. When I interpreted the tags, which I do a lot as I already own some Aussie classics, it comes up as a 308 Kingswood and not a genuine factory Monaro.

Original HQ Sales Brochures

Hi,

I have just been going through my late fathers shed items and come across 2 original HQ sales brochures and 2 colour range selector chart.All are in reasonable condition. I also have new clipping about the new release of the HQ (I think from the Courier Mail). In addition still have the original sales quote from Eagers Retail in Ann St Kemp Place Brisbane.

I would rather see these go to someone who is an enthusiast, rather than binning them.

Any reasonable offer will not be refused.

wiring harness

A gentleman in my car club is doing a retirement project, hes 71, and just came back on a over seas trip.
He has a 71 HQ Prem 25th Anniversary, and the wiring has been chewed by a little furry bugger in the dash area.
My question is,
Has anyone rewired there car with one of those pre kit wiring harness from Rare Spares ?????
We thinking, better to be safe than sorry and just rewire the hole car, JUST IN CASE there is more the hungry little bugger chewed.

Any advice would be much appreciated

rebuild a 253 or replace it - What do ya reckon and how much $$

Hi Guys, 1st time poster .... i have just purchased off a mate a 73 HQ UTE with a 253V8 in it .. It hasn't been driven or started in over 2 years ... and its on gas/petrol as well ...although i will get rid of the gas crap... It does leak some oil but was running good before he parked it in his shed, and let the rego run out ... My questions are 1) What would it cost ( APPROX) to rebuild the engine and work it a bit ... Give it a lumpy cam and make it sound nice at idle ...

Fitting Power steering to HQ with a 350 Chev

Hi

I am trying to fit a Power steering pump to a SBC 350 Chev with a short water pump.

There is only one bolt hole in the head on the drivers side and two holes for mounting (in US) a low mount alternator. If i try and use these holes the hose from the water pump hose is in the road.

Even if i try and low mount the power steering with the alternator above on the passenger side i would then need to run longer hoses so would need to make them up.

Anyone come across this before? Help...

many thanks

Hq kingswood speedo problem

Hi guys I have had my hq on the road for about 6 months. About a month ago the speedo stopped working properly and started reading really low around 25mph at 60mph. It has slowly been coming right again now and sometimes it will eventually get to 60 if your cruising along at 60mph. But when you stop it stays up like its stuck somehow.
I have pulled both ends of cable and rand with a drill sometimes gauge sticks sometimes it doesn't. Any ideas?
