Holden Colour Codes

I hadn't noticed this before on Unique Cars so it might be something new (probably just didn't see it)

Holden Colour Charts, codes, paint and interior.

A - L http://www.uniquecar...

M - Z http://www.uniquecar...

Scroll down to bottom for year of manufacture.

Might be handy for some of us :-)

Fitting a tachometer to 3.3 blue engine

I drive a 1958 Land Rover with a beautifully rebuild 3.3 litre blue engine fitted. I decided to install a simple VDO tachometer to keep an eye on the revs when on the highway. The installation went really well. The only problem is that the rev counter won't count revs! It has juice so I figure the issue concerns the connection to the coil. The coil is a Bosch HEC 716. Can anyone advise me on how to connect the tacho to the coil?

Much appreciated.

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.

t5 borg warner gearboc from vk commodore

Hi All...
Im looking at getting the t5 5speed for my vc bombadore, i found one looks good on ebay, good price, im wondering though, ive had alook at the old holden holdenpeadia thing and no mention of this, but, to install it to replace an aussie 4spd box,do i need to cut out the hole for the shifter to fit the 5speed, allowing for the slightly longer box coz of the 5th gear? ive been told this as a "you may have to" statement but have found no confirmations of the suggestion.
ccheers
Grant

camshaft tunnel score marks

i found some score marks on the bearing surfaces for the camshaft, im wondering if they can be fixed and just get bearings to match, only one has what i would say was a bad score mark, enough to catch my fingernail in it easily, about to put block in for boring machining etc just wondering if score marks that deep is a big issue or not
Thanks
