A friend of mine is about to undergo a cobra kit car build and was talking about a special license he will be taking out
that gives him only 90 days driving a year and requires him to keep a log book, but more of interest gives him a bit more
scope on running items that would be otherwise illegal.

I think he said it was a hotrod license. I've had a look at the licensing website and it states the vehicle must be pre 1949
to qualify? A club concession license says the vehicle cant be modified?

old school flames

Hello everyone. Haven't been on the site for a while and thought Id show you all my first attempt at some old school flames.
Trying to stay committed to a "have a go" outlook and with enormous help from my adorable wife we searched the net for some flame styles.
Then found out how to stencil, mark out ,tape up and method of painting and just had a go. This effort all stems from some "have a go"
rust repairs in the RH window scuttle area and both doors and then touching up with paint and finding the result was patchy. So I decided
to repaint in protec GT black. Painted the flames and then covered with some satin clear. Ive just got to put some sundry items back on
and Im rollin again. All up took me a week and a half. Hope everyone drools. Long live old holdens

Kingswood HZ VIN location?

Hi guys,

I've just found a shell of a Holden HZ that I want to use for parts but I'm not sure if the numbers and tags are matching.

Can someone tell me where to find the VIN number location on the chassis? Is there only one location for it?

HZ door mirror

gday all,
i'm confused. can anybody possibly shed some light on this hz door rear view mirrow for me?
it is completely loose on the ball - useless as is. it doesn't look damaged.
two of the three screws have been (somehow..?) sheared off. they rattle around inside - i can't get em out.
the mirror looks completely sealed so i cannot see how i can service it. i just wanna tighten the attachment ball up.
there's nothing wrong with the mirror - besides the looseness.
i really wanna keep it.
any ideas boys?

Just bought a HZ Premier!! :)

Hey all. I'm new on this website and just wanted to introduce myself.

My name is Tom and I'm from Sydney.

I've been reading posts on this website for almost a year now and have just bought my first Kingswood today, a 1979 Kingswood Premier with a factory 253 Trimatic.

It's got your usual rust spots etc but I plan on restoring the whole car properly including some modifications along the way to make it my own and unique.

Here are some pics of it:

Banjo diff breather

I have had oil leaking issues with my Banjo diff. So I have replaced axle seals and gasket between diff centre and housing. All looked good until i took the Prem for a 1 hour drive and popped it back on the hoist. I still had a oil leak and it was coming out of the breather. I checked the level and it was okay, not overfilled. thought about replacing it with a new one, but you can't buy them. Any ideas people?

Deceptive seller & motor advice please!

Hey guys need some advice I've been lied to about condition of a motor in a vehicle.
Recently purchased a car.
Was informed the motor was a new crate 350 only done X000 ks. However it has a police stamp number and the thing is running like a John Deere.

So if it is stipulated over and over its a new motor & clearly not do I have any legal legs to stand on?

The car was just under 10k it was purchased thru a dealer in another state.
Should the seller come to the party with the truth & cough up a bit of a refund to rhetoric the motto running properly?

The timings way out it's running really rich changed points & plugs today she starts then runs for 15 seconds then stops.

Any diagnosis tips? Next step was to check fuel lines .

HOLDEN HZ 1978 PROPORTIONING VALVE HELP PLEASE

hz kinsgy o/s/f door

gday all,

1) just stripping me driver's, front door down today and just wondering (again)
why gmh used different size lug holes for the door rubbers around the botton/sides than
from the window frame. obviously, the big holes need plastic grommets, where the window frame holes don't.
what do you boys reckon?

2) does anyone know the correct way the winder winder and door opening handle anti-rattle springs go?
the photo show how they were. the window winder spring looks right because the lower coil fits
snug around the regulator. it looks upside down when compared to the door opening handle spring.
any ideas boys? manuals say nuttn...

bj

btw, the door looks bewdiful now..great nic...but let's see how she looks when the paint comes off to bare metal

Removing body from Chassis

Hello All,

In the next few weeks I will be removing my body from the chassis on my old HZ Ute..

What's the best way to do this without a hoist? almost ready to go. want to remove the body and clean paint the chassis and put the body back on with new rubbers before it goes in for body work and paint..

It will be off for a month or so and was hoping someone could help out with any idea's or post what they have done.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated..

Cheers

Jason

Injected 308 conversion loom / harness

I'm doing an injected top end conversion on a 308 in a HZ ute.

I have a VN factory harness, and I'm after the conversion wiring to adapt to the HZ wiring.

Can anyone recommend a simple plug in loom. There was a bloke on eBay who was selling an impressive setup, but I can't find him. He was at the NSW Central Coast, and modified an original WB harness. Does anyone have his details.

Thanks

valve timing

When a new cam is being fitted is it necessary to have the valve timing checked apart from normal when the cam is non standard ie lumpy cam
