Old Holden seats???

Just wondering if anyone can tell me what model these seats are out of? They're too wide by a fair bit for my HT wagon so would like to find out what they're from.

173 stumble

Giday guys I've been trying to get my old 173 running abit smoother off idle. I have noticed that there is no vacuum advance. I pulled the hose off the dizzy while engine running and there is no vacuum at the dizzy. The port is not blocked either as I can blow back through line to carby. Any ideas?
Cheers

Ive noticed we get a fair amount of questions, general posts, and even criticism from the above member (Yes i know this is actually lots of different folks)
Occasionally, we all post as "Holden Fan" usually this is an unintended oversight when we are logged out.
Now i'm happy to share knowledge and advice, (even if this isn't really appreciated or acknowledged) but I do wish people would just bite the bullet, sign up and put a name to their post. "Holden fan" is often the first to criticise. Its too easy to be a troll when you are a nameless nobody.

Bit more done on the Dirty D

Got my 3 row radiator & tranny cooler mounted today.
I made up a filler piece to go in between the radiator & the support panel, I used 25 x 20mm alloy angle & I boxed the corners & painted it satin black after an etch & I finish off with a thin piece of pinchweld.

Car Cover

Hi guys, I'm soon to be losing access to a friend's garage that I've been lucky to be keeping my HR away from the elements. So it will have to live under a carport at my place that gets a fair bit of morning sun as well as some rain blowing in when bad. Not ideal but all I have for the time being. So I was going to put a cover on it to keep it clean and protect from some UV in the morning...does anyone have any recommendations? Pros and cons would appreciate any experience.
Thanks

Hydraulic accumulator.

I found out what these things are today.They are basically a fluid pressure relief shock absorber.
The one in our Rav4 failed at 5:45 this morning when I got in it to go work. I put my foot on the clutch pedal and it stayed on the floor, so I started the EH and woke the neighbours. LOL
When i got home I looked under the bonnet and saw clutch fluid sprayed all over the bellhousing.
I got my daughter to push the clutch in a and saw a stream of fluid squirting from a cast alloy housing in the clutch line.

Be careful how you donate to the drought relief

........” Not as it seems with Buy a bale.
Not all the money goes to the farmers, nor even to getting the hay to the farm, but last year saw over $350,000 go directly to the organisations FIVE employees.
