HJ Holden - To sell or not to sell

Gday All,

I have a HJ Ute - which used to be my daily driver. I retired it for comforts of a good heater and Aircon

Its good for rust, average paint job and decent interior.
I want to sell/swap or a campervan or 4wd I can tour aus in

what is a best forum to do this? Ebay?
Any idea what the ute might be worth?

thanks

Dunno what I did, but I fixed it!

Less than three year old 206 started making expensive noises one Friday after work. First thought was loose flywheel... nope. But seemed too much play in the crank/bearings. Bugger! Cut the oil filter open... hmmm, not as clean as I thought it should be.
Yanked the engine out, on the stand, upside down, pull the sump, nothin' obvious. Crack all the big ends, check bearings, all as expected. Then did the same to the mains... same story. Retorqued everything, new gaskets, refit and fire it up. Bloody noise has gone. Where?? Dunno!

Fuel tank wont fill

Hi just wondering if anybody has come accross a fuel tank that wont fill.

Put in another hj fuel tank into panelvan.
Put a liner kit through it as the previous tank was completely rusted out.
When i fill it from empty i only get about 40L in before its full, & if i push it i can see the fuel gurgling at the top of the filler tube. (Yes its 100% full)

One theory is that the pick-up is leaving 1/3 of the fuel behind in the tank.
Fuel meter reads empty & the pick-up wont collect any more fuel.

Solutions?

Cheers Al

smokey 308

Hi all, i have had a win today,woke up that my 308 (recently purchased ) was running a PCV from LH rocker cover and a breather filler cap on RH .they are aftermarket cast alloy covers with no baffle plate below the PCV hole. Engine was smokey and loosing oil. i put a sealed filler cap on and instantly less smoke.IS it better to run no PCV and have a breather filter on each cover or leave as i have done. Still think PCV can suck oil straight in with no baffle.???
