HX

Good morning Old Holden!

Good morning Old Holdener's, it's been a while! I'm back onto the HX. Was going to put an Ecotec in, but decided an EFI 3.3 was the go. Keep it Holden powered!
So who else is hitting the shed this Saturday morning?

Cheers.

LMH

Engine Bay paint codes

Can someone help me out with the paint codes in the engine bay, boot & under body for my HX Premier 76', do they need clear etc. Or a Spray can brand & color to make it a bit easier. Also air cleaner color.

Also need help with Power Steering adjustment procedure, I did find the allen head screw under the cap on top of the box.
Problem is the car is all over the road at speed and needs a big adjustment. The box looks to be re coed and I can't understand how it could be so far out. The rest of the steering components are all tight.

Cheers Peter

Does someone know the whereabouts of this old HX Prem wagon??

Hi all,

Im looking for help to try and locate a Contessa Gold 7/1976 HX Premier wagon my Dad owned between 1977 and 1995.
The car was Victorian registered from new, i do know its last Victorian address was in Frankston somewhere and that it left Vic in 2004 and was last registered in the Northern Territory with its matching numbers 253, but its registration was cancelled in 2006.
It was the family wagon i grew up with and my Dad and i pampered it until we eventually parted with it.
Over Christmas the family were watching old home movies which sparked my interest to try and locate the wagon. Ive got a whole collection of paperwork relating to it knowing one day i would want to try and find her again.

Hi all,

Ive got a lot of history for the car dating from 1977 to 1995 when it was sold always knowing one day id want to try and locate it again.
The car was Victorian registered from new, but i do know its last registration was in Northern Territory still with its matching numbers 253.

The Mysteries of the Beaver Panel

Would like to replace the beaver panel in my HQ.

I see you can buy replacement beaver panels from Rares, and I see where the bottom section is spot welded to the underside but I'm not sure where the top section stops.

My questions are :

1) How do I remove the existing beaver panel without damaging the metalwork it attaches to?

2) Is replacing this piece beyond the capabilities of a relative novice?

I'm prepared to purchase a welder for this fix and others I need to do.

Rear Exhaust Mounts

Silly Question Alert.

These bits can be mounted a few different ways and I don't have an example to look at. If someone could post a pic of the correct setup I would be very appreciative.

Does the "leg" of the bracket sit inside or outside the exhaust pipe? Does the leg hang down or point up? As I said, a pic would be fantastic!

Thanks :-)

Speedo is ~20% out, f#@¥ knows how...

Hi all you instrument experts out there in the Oldholdenverse... I've got a major mind boggling problem with my HX Statesman DeVille speedo & odo that run about 20% out when I GPS'd my speed at 100kmph. It's a 5L, runs on 215/65 R14's & is fitted with a 1:2.78 diff, T400 (dunno which of the 3 gear combos it has- brown 15 tooth, orange 16 or red 17) & yellow gear on the speedo cable. The original Stato dash was pulled out & all the gauges tested & they work fine. I tested all the gauges on my GTS dash and they too all work fine.

Brain fart with one leftover part

G'day guys,

Finally getting the kingswood back on the road, and have been rebuilding the Carby. Was documenting how I pulled it apart however when putting it back together, I can't remember where this part is from, and if it is even from the Carby. (I'm sure it is).

See attached picture...

Any ideas? I would very thankful!

BTW. The carby is from a 202 red HX kingswood, it is a Stromberg BX i think the one with the three screws (Something that confuses me was why it has AX stamped on the outside of the Carby)
