Hi, I've just joined your site so still working my way through things..anyway I'm over in little old NZ and have a 1977 HZ stationwagon that I'm working on. At the moment I'm after door latches. Over here you just cant find second hand parts so the question is - are there door latches from other models or makes that will fit into the HZ, even with a little modification. Any advice much appreciated.
Cheers .. Ian
Any speedo guru's out there, help me solve this one.I have 130kph on the speedo whilst doing 100kph this would indicate to me im 30% over. I checked the speedo calculator and there is no set that equates to this percentage so what do i do? specs are
hz 1 tonner,
2.78 ratio ten bolt
245/60 r14 tyres
Is there some way you can modify a standard tbar in a hz so that you can get all 4 gears in a t700? I started with a B&m shifter in the original console and made a new top, but getting the BM boot to fit was a drama and nobody reckons a bag will work either. Any thoughts. cheers Dave

Just have a question about Engine numbers.
I recently inherited a beautiful 78 HZ premier 308 sedan. It had an engine rebuild in 81. I can't find any original paperwork on the car and was wondering if there is a way i can tell if the engine is the original or a replaced one.

G'day everyone. Have been working on a 6 cyl HZ one tonner with my 16 year old son for his first car. Reasonably tidy but have a question which I hope someone can help us with. Accidently pulled on the steering wheel getting out of it and noticed a lot of play as the wheel came forward (between the wheel and column cover). Was told about the "crumple" techniques of the time and inspected the wire basket, and the plastic tabs along the shaft and both were ok. The play seems to be in the knuckle on the intermediate shaft under the rubber boot. Is this something that wears or fails over time? Can it be fixed?
Thanks all in advance

I'm having trouble locating a cab for a hz tonner and have come across a wb cab. Just wanted to know what differences there are. The HZ tonner has a HQ premier front if that makes a difference. (I'm in Tamworth NSW if you have a cab you don't need.)

Does anybody have any experience registering a vehicle that has lost its ID tags? Are previous rego papers along with a letter of sale sufficient? It still has the chassis no. Stamped on it.
Any help or knowledge from previous experiences would be appreciated!

Hi, I have a HZ 1 tonner with a blue 3.3 motor straight unmodified motor. I have just fitted a 32/36 weber carby and it runs well but under heavy load it suffers bad pre ignition(pinging). I have checked the timing(6 degrees) but I think the jetting is making it too lean, can any body suggest a good jet size, please. Thanks
