I am from New Zealand and own a HJ premier which I brought off an old guy who had it for 20 years and i have been told its quite rare.It is Austalian assembled and has the following factory options - 308, th400, 10 bolt lsd, GTS dash- grill- and headlight surrounds and it aslo has electric windows, it has the apropriate badging but has a badge coming of the front of the bonnet. If anyone knows if this a rare model or know who I can get info on it from, it would be most apreciated.

Speedo Problems, HZ Speedo in a HZ

Hi Everyone,

My 1971 HQ has a HZ dash in it, but the speedo is giving incorrect readings. At first this might have been because of a different diff. ratio, but once I got the correct' speedo gear it was still reading incorrectly. It's reading under the road speed, ie, when I'm doing 110kmh (checked with my friends GPS), the speedo is reading 80k's, when I'm doing 80 it's around 60.
Any ideas what might be wrong? Is there any difference between the pre metric speedo drives to the metric speedo's out of the HZ's?

ALSO, my swaybar has an unfortunate habit of ripping out the shackle bolts and the thread from in the chassis. Does anyone have a solution to this problem that doesn't involve cutting the chassis open, or getting rid of the sway bar? Is there some way or strengthening the chassis in that area that works?

Thanks'

I have a 253 with a 350 holley... but some of my emission gear isnt connected ri

Ive just bought a Holden HJ sandman with a red 253ci V8, it has a 4BBl intake manifold (with a 2BBl adapter) and a 350 holley... some of my emission control gear just isnt connected. I was thinking of replacing the 350 holley with a 4BBl Rochester... this way i should be able to use my emission control gear. (EGR valve, air cleaner, thermo switch etc) The motor is slightly worked, but would the Rochester be too big? and overfuel or just run generally crap? or can it be tuned? would it use ALOT more fuel?? if this helps i have a semi constructed homepage with some buildup pics.
