`75 HJ Wagon "Deluxe" Rebuild ??

Is anyone able to provide me with some suggestions/specs for a rebuild of a 1975 HJ Deluxe wagon running a stock 202 red. I have had her for 8 years and everything is still original, straight out of the factory, still has B&W plates ! The old six is getting a bit tired but I dont want to do anything drastic, just a rebuild/freshen up.The plan is to do engine/suspension etc. first then respray and retrim in orig. colours of Persian Sand (body) & Antelope (roof). Everything is orig. spec except for a 2and 1/4 exhaust which is just about rooted.

Console

Hello,
Does anyone have a floor console forsale, or knows where i can get one from! I have thought of making one up,but i don know where to start! But that's if it is impossible to get one second hand! I own a HJ Panel Van with a three speed trimatic. I bought the car and have been doing it up, but the car currently only has a T shift coming out of the floor with nothing over it or around it. Also, does anyone know if this is a road worthy issue?

Your ideas will be much appreciated. Cheers...'

No turn Over

My 253 red will not turn over. I have taken the starter motor out and replaced the solenoide and tested the motor and it all works perfect.

But as soon as i fit it, the starter will not turn over. The car did used to turn over fine but recently it has just stoped.

My questions are: There are three wire going down to the starter, brown/purple/red, what are these supposed to connect to? in the book it only shows 2 wires? confused!! Can the ignition switch be shagged? What would be the best thing to do?

Your ideas are much appreciated

Exhaus: twin or single

Hello all, thankyou to those who replied to the "Water in oil" problem.

I have another query. The 253 i have has bran new lukey extractors that i have fitted, but i don know what is better. Would a twin exhaust be more efficient for the engine and what size should they be. Or should i go the single, but what size?

Your ideas are much appreciated.

Water in oil

I own a HJ PV 253, and i have found that the oil inside, at the top of the rockers covers have a slight layer of creamy looking oil, obviously this is water mixing with the oil. But the oil in the sump is normal and on top of the valves. Is this normal, or could this be a headgasket leak. But there are no bubles forming in the radiator when the enigine is running? Do you have any ideas?

Anyones help is much appreciated.
