Not-so-old Holden..

Guys, my VP Commonbore front doors are a pain in the ar$e to close. Slightly open the windows, they shut OK. Back doors, perfect, they shut with a slight *click*, as they should. The car is very low K's, so it's not worn out. Anyone got a quick fix for them please?

Pre-Filling Oil Filters

While this video (https://www.youtube.... ) about Cat Diesel oil and petrol filters, the principles are the same for the oil filters on our petrol driven vehicles and it does raise some interesting questions. If we are filling via the large spin on hole on filter we are filling at the outlet side and are probably doing very little in terms of priming the oil pump or oil lines.

Who is pulling out their Old Holden for Australia Day?

My HT will get a run down to Scotts Head or Grassy Head this year to take the kids for a swim and a picnic. I WILL put my 60's mal on the roof racks and push the kids in on a few little waves.
No, I won't put those $2 chinese reject shop aussie flags all over the door jambs because a classic aussie Holden does not need overstating the obvious OR a "LOOK AT ME!, LOOK AT ME" try hard / wanker claim. (But that's just me and my thoughts guys.)

The things you see when you don't have a camera

1961 Chev Impala 4 door pillarless hardtop. This picture is from Mr Google.
I saw one of these on Sunday. It was in original unrestored condition apart from the mechanicals.
Australian delivered, built by Holden, factory right hand drive.
The owner said there was only eight built out here, 5 were Beliars and three were Impalas.
That would make his particular Impala a very rare car, maybe even the only one left.

Oldish Holden Rattly Noise

Hi Guys. Sorry not Old Holden but I'm trying to diagnose a tinny rattle in my sons VY Commodore. To me it sounds like a flex plate / torque converter bolt has come loose but it may be somewhat more sinister than that. I've checked the engine mounts and I don't think it's the cat's as I've put a stethoscope (wooden broom handle) to the bottom of the trans and it seems to be coming from there. Hope someone can help :-) I've uploaded a movie clip to listen to.

Here is a link if the upload doesn't work.

For those playing at home:

Here's a link to the sheds. This is NOT via oldholden, this is another source, and it's a very old version. Some late comers may not be in here. I had to scroll through the pages to get to mine, you will have to do the same to find yours. I then copied and saved the link. Not perfect, but still works OK..
Good luck, let me know how you go.
EDIT: Shanebo says it may be an iffy link. It works on my vintage computer, just be careful when clicking, folks.

Dealer stencils

I reckon these are super cool.Anyone have a dealer stencil still on their OH? This is off an EJ (under bonnet). I dont have one.

Were they very common back in the day or was it only a handful of dealers that did this? Anyone know what model this practice was discontinued?

I thought you blokes would like this.

The fastest speeding ticket in Texas (USA, not Qld) last year was in a Commodore. 161mph. (76 over the 85 limit = 161)

I know the call it a Chev over there, but it was a Commodore, built in Australia.

One tonner cabs

Are all one tonner cabs the same? I have a hz one tonner and I'm going to replace the cab and put all the interior in the new cab. Am I limited just to a hz cab?
Cheers
