This is the the ideal trimatic for a column shift, note the little bolt like thing sticking out behind the bell-housing it's the selector shaft & thats where the fork bolts onto.

Premier Interior

G'day is anyone able to tell me if the HJ Premier seats were the same as HZ Premier ones design wise? and could standard HZ Kingswoods be optioned to the Premier upholstery from the factory? The reason I'm wondering is ive found a nice set of HJ Premier seats on gumtree http://www.gumtree.c... and think it would work out better (and cheaper) to just buy these to put in my HZ rather than re-upholstering whats in the car at the moment as the material is quite badly torn especially on the front seats im not expecting it to be a cheap excerice to get them fixed. These on gummy look like they should clean up pretty well and price wise is very good compared to asking prices ive seen on ebay etc.

Interesting Ebay items     (?)This area is inventionally left blank.

Bumper Over riders

Finally managed to snag a front and rear set of the bumper over riders which i think suit these cars very nicely. Like many parts they seem to have sky rocketed over the years but got them through a wanted to buy add on gumtree for a really good price. A bit of guess work as to where they went on the bumper, not sure if they are a bit narrow on the front and should be spaced out a little bit or okay as is.

$$$ once Holden manufacturing stops

Hi guys I was just curious on your thoughts about rise in prices from next year for old holdens once the manufacturing ceases in Australia of holdens. I've read their will be a spike in the price of older cars. Surely this will be for special classics like monaros and special editions like sandmans etc. but what do you Wreckon about standard vehicles like Hz kings wood/Belmont panel and and sl sedans?

HZ electrics

Just installed a blinker arm/wiper switch in the HZ.
Now the headlights are stuck on.
The one I installed came from a VB/VC, I think.
Is that the problem?

Steering column boot replacement

Hi guys, I'm changing the steering over to p/s in the ute. While doing it I thought I would throw a new rubber boot on the shaft at the bottom of the column. Does the cross piece at the top of the shaft come out? If so, how?

RAE distributors

Can I get peoples opinions on RAE distributors,please?
I took the old Bosch HEI out to strip down and clean up,(for the red 253,thinking its out of blue motor) but first thing I noticed was the vac. adv. diaphragm was stuffed.
Rather than buy another 2nd hand unit,looked at new electronic units on ebay,but ended up buying one from repco (So I`ll have warranty)
It has 1 yr warranty,and for a car I drive 2x a month,it should be ok,even though its chinese.
Now,from what I`ve read...people swap out the chinsese module for the old Bosch one (which I`ll do after warranty expires)
And,does the chinese one timing still sit 6-7 deg?

Stuck Spark Plug in #5

So supercheap has a 25% off sale today so I rip down and get a set of plugs and leads for the 253.

7 of the 8 plugs came out easy, #5 is stuck and now has rounded off the edges of the hexagonal area where the spark plug socket attaches :-(

It is tight as buggery and wont budge, the socket just jumps around. I dont have a air compressor or a rattle gun. I have run the engine to heat it up to see if that frees it.

I have also ground the end off my plug socket so it goes deeper onto the spark plug but no luck...

Had soaked the area in WD40, short of removing the head is there anything else to try ???


new HEI dizzy??

Just curious...
I`ve seen new points-style dizzy`s for sale (I think it was
but just wondering if any company produces brand new HEI 12v units.
Shouldnt matter too much if its chinese crap,its needed for a car that doesnt drive too often (red 253),and if I buy another 2nd hand unit,then it could well have problems also...
