HZ Kingswood dash lamp cluster

It's been a while since I last posted, but I have a question regarding the lamp cluster in the standard dash for HZ. Of the 6 lamps in the centre cluster, I know one of the bottom two spaces is for the fuel economy lamp, but the use of the other eludes me so far. A couple of people have said it's for temperature, but does anyone have any photos?

Any help appreciated.

Cheers, Evan.

M20 gearbox linkage nuts

Can anyone tell me the size of the nuts that connect the linkage plates to the selectors on a M20? I measured them as 24 tpi but 5/16" or 3/8" don't fit. It is in between??

Rear Louvre

Evening all, got the rear louvre that I was looking for last weekend which I'm rapt with as I think it suits the HQ-HZ perfectly. Only one small crack which I fixed with a bit of superglue and actually used the meguires tyre gel on it which made it look just like new!

WTB: Plastic indicator cancel plate for 70s/80s Holdens

It seems you can get a reproduction unit for the early-70s vehicles, but I cannot find the plastic indicator cancel assembly that sits inside the steering wheel for anything after '72. I put a request out on Findapart, but no interest there.

Mine's been AWOL since I bought the vehicle (UC Torana). From what I can tell, it's the same part from the HQ all the way through to the VL.

v8 rebuild questions

Gday all. Im pulling down my 304 v8 to rebuild it. Most of its apart except the bottom end which I plan to finish in the morning. Just a couple of questions:

1. When punching the numbers into the rods, is there a certain side they should be punched on. Ive pulled down 6cyls before and they were always on one side (eg might have been the cam side). But with a v block im not sure if I should be stamping towards the outside of the engine for that bank, or stamp all 8 rods on the left side or right side of the engine.

bosch HEI wiring

Hey folks, I went to change the ignition module on my HEI dizzy in the HZ and noticed that the wires are frayed just before they go through the rubber block in the side of the dizzy. How is the rubber block removed without damaging it? I don't feel like destroying it getting it out to replace the wires. Cheers in advance

Mags or hubcaps?

G'day fellas, i'll be adding some shed pics shortly into the shed but just waiting for the confirmation email. I was hoping to get some opinions on whether to keep the mags on my old girl or put the original wheels with hubcaps back on. I do like the mags the car came with they are the era, 14s with 235 all round which does make the steering quite heavy. The car came with the original hubcaps when I bought it which have come up really well after a bit of attention over the weekend. Ive found a set of rims with good tyres on gumtree for $150 but im in two minds whether to stick with whats on there already or go back to the original. I know everyone on this site are enthusiasts so i'd welcome any opinions or ideas.

Hello Everyone,

Has anyone had trouble getting tyres to suit older vehicles? I have done a few online searches (no phone calls yet) with some of the major suppliers and they list nothing..

I did search for 265/50/14 and 245/50/14

was going to have the wheels redone but this may now change.



Waiting for the paint job to be finished tax man come good so might get it done this year.

..more hz door servicing

gday all,

...further to my recent post re my hz kingsy's (rear) door hinge servicing..thanks again KEIJAMES.

well, i've pulled it (the rear door) all the way down today - preparring for strip/paint.

can anyone pls advise:

A) whether the plastic wheels on the window regulator can be serviced? (attached pics with arrow to A)

B) whether the plastic rollers on the actual window glass frame can be serviced? (attached pics with arrow to B)

C) whether the star washers on the bolts which attach the door shut/latch/lock need to be replaced when refitted.
the ones i took out seem like they've been squashed onto the bolt taper. (attached pics with arrow to C)


HZ door hinges

gday all,

can anyone pls advise if these rear door hinges in me hz kingsy can be serviced?
if so, are the pins pressed in?

these's a bit of movement in the top one (attached) when just held in me hand.

mind you, i cannot remember there being a problem with it when it was on the car...

it's a bit hard to check the bottom (bigger) hinge as it's sprung very tight with a spring.
