253 rebuild/big ends

My red 253 needs big ends refreshed.

As I have never done any major engine work before, I am wondering how difficult this can be.

Its not a matching numbers car, so would it be better to source a replacement reco motor?

Have looked at engine stands to do the work. But am sceptical about the stands moving/rolling under pressure from loosening and tightening components. Does this occur?

2 part question Handbrake rear Venetain HJ Kingswood

Hi All,

I have a HJ Kingswood I am tidying up and I took off the hand brake cover and unbolted to clean underneath it and I forgot to take a picture and I can't remember how it should look back together and where the spring sits if anyone can help with a picture or how it goes would be greatly appreciated,

I have also purchased an original venetian from a swap meet for the rear window but it doesn't have the adjustment screws I am not really keen to screw into the roof lining or is there another option to fit the non adjusting style??

Cheers Thanks

dodgey fuel gauge

Hello
Can anyone please advise on the best way to rectify a fuel gauge that doesn't work properly - ie - when the tank is full, it goes up to 3/4. The car in question is a HJ ute. I recall from the old days that the float may get stuck, could this be the cause? And if so, any advice on best way to fix?
Many thanks

Which coil?

Been trying to get a definitive answer on this but getting lots of conflicting views:

I have got my hands on a Bosch HEI distributor for a 253/308, ignition module part number 9222067021. I'm using the small points cap with the Falcon rotor (GB786).

What's the best bosch transformer coil to use? HEC716 or MEC718?

Recommended panel and paint?

It's time to get our old tonner back on the road and I'm seeking advice regarding any recommended panel and paint guys to cut out some rust (usual places) and get it ready for roadworthy inspection.

This is not a ground up resto, but I'd like to have some confidence in the repairer, that the rust won't break out again after a few months as has happened to me once before.

Can anyone please recommend a good panel and paint shop in the Toowoomba neighbourhood?

Preferably someone who does old Holden work.

HX Vacationer Wiring Schematic

I have a 1975 HJ Ute. I am about to fit a Dash out of a HX Vacationer into it.
I noticed there is a change in the amount of wires running through the firewall.
It would be great to get a wiring schematic for the HX Vacationer so I can wire her up correctly the first time.
Can anyone help me?

Trimatic Kickdown solenoid wiring connector

I am after the connector and wire that connects to the kickdown solenoid on a Trimatic transmission. I reckon any model Holden that has a Trimatic will have the same connector. If you have an old harness laying around that you would be happy to sacrifice this wire from I would be eternally grateful. Please let me know if you can help
