hz seam sealer

gday all you boys,

may i pls ask whether anyone can recommend what i
should do about tidying up underneath my hz plenum panel - where it comes out the sides and covers the front-top of the front doors.

it looks like there are some welds in there so i presume that stuff is seam sealer eh?

1) should i pick it out, rust treat the whole area, then use
seam sealer again?

2) is the seam sealer really necessary?...or is there something more modern i should use instead these days?

HZ Boot Mould holes

Has anyone ever drilled / re-drilled the holes in a HZ boot lid to use the correct boot mould clips?

Mine has a hole at each end, but nothing in between.

Would it be as simple as using a string line from one hole to the other, and marking drill points in a straight line?

Thanks in advance.

HZ petrol tank and fuel & temp gauges

gday all,

if any of you boys haven't seen a HZ petrol tank removed with 40 years of road grease removed, then here it is. i needed to remove it to service the sender, so i had to drop it. it looks galvanised and in pretty good condition really. btw, it took me about 5 hours to get all the crap off it.

i'm gonna spray it with a cuppla coates of 'motospray rust converter primer/sealer'. then finish it with 'wurth bitumen underbody sealer'.
are you boys happy with this combo?

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

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.

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

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.
