HB

Bathurst Torana's

Hi everyone and happy new year. I was given a box set of Holden DVD's for Christmas and started watching them through the week. The first DVD seemed to focus on the LC GTS XU1 but that made me wonder why Holden didn't race the Brabham Torana in the 4 cylinder class. The footage shows a Viva rolling over so I would seem logical that the high performance HB Torana should have been raced as well. It would have been pretty competitive with it's engine upgrades over the standard Torana one would think? Ford had their Cortina's going pretty well so why no Holden equivalent?

Does matching numbers or original colour really increase value?

I've recently purchased a tidy original well looked after Hq that is in a colour I realy don't like, (orchid metalic) I can't wait to paint it but everyone keeps telling me to keep it original as it will hold its value? The motor is not original so is there any point in keeping it an original colour when the engine is not matching anyway? I would have thought that any restored hq regardless of colour would be worth more than your average rust bucket. would I be stupid to paint it?

HB Torana Distributor & Fuel Pump

Hi All,
I'm still attempting to get my HB Torana running. I've had it for a year and a half ...have a crack at it every few months and discover the next issue.

Anyways, with a little help from a mechanic I've worked out the distributor shaft is bent - set the points, start to turn it over, checking the points clearance each time. Goes from the right clearance to too much clearance to no clearance.

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?
