Radiator advice

Hi guys,
Time for a new radiator for my auto 202 HZ. I run air conditioning now. Currently have a 3 row core brass copper (i think they call it an outback pack?). One guy quoted $550, said it was heavy duty off the shelf (not Chinese crap). Another said he wouldn't sell me one off the shelf (because not good enough), but would recommend re-core my existing one with three high quality core, $720.
I live on Central Coast NSW.
Any advice appreciated please.
Thanks,
Todd

Hz van Disc rear brakes

Hey guys and girls

I need to upgrade the rear brakes on the pano and I have heard that you can fit vn - vs ( boarg Warner) rear brakes to a hz large Salisbury.
Is this true???
Has anyone on here done this conversion?
Is it worth it or should I try and find disc brakes from a statesman or similar
Thanks in advance

HZ bumper bar gap

Hi all, first time poster here.

Are there any backyard quick tricks or modifications to achieving an even bumper bar gap? Panel shop have corrected as much as they could without butchering anything.

Cheers. Paul

Red 202 fan clutch and shroud setup

I want to put a shroud and fan clutch on my warm red 202 HZ van which has a V8 radiator. I can get a new shroud and new fan clutch but

1) I can't work out where the shroud is supposed to mount (think I'm missing brackets on the radiator)

2) can't find the blades for sale anywhere (to attach to fan clutch)

My current fan is 45mm (17.5") with a 2.5" spacer which I don't believe is stock and won't fit with the shroud (which I believe is 17" max?)

I'm located in Coburg, if anyone in Melbourne has parts for sales I'd appreciate it.

Importing wheels from u.s.a

Hi guys,
So I’m up to the stage of putting some nice aftermarket wheels on my hz. Just like to know any feedback or anyone with experience in importing wheels from the U.S.
I have found some wheels I want to get on the internet but not sure if you have to order for an American car I.e camaro
Obviously having an hz Holden they don’t have those cars , and just want to know, do you have to order for an American car or does anyone know what American car has the same hubs and stud pattern as Holden hz?
Any feedback much appreciated, Thanks

Trimatic slip in first gear in drive only not L

Hi can someone advise me before I go to a tranny specialist's and spend money that I may not have too.

I dont have any specialized tooling, just regular, and Jack's ect in my home garage.

Basically I brought an old hz 6 cylinder kingswood that had been sitting around for years unused. I hooked back up the fuel tank and replaced the master cylinder, bled the brakes and now the car runs and stops.

If I take of in D the tranny will slip in first gear only but if I put it in L and take of it is fine.

Any ideas i might be able to try?

Thanks

hz rear screen lower clips

gday boys,

does anyone know where I can get new rear windscreen lower edge clips/brackets (see pics).

what I need are NOT the type of clip that fit into the lugs for the front screen (and the top of the rear screen), rather the ones that slide into along the lower stainless mould then screw in. 8 are needed.
