HT Alternator bracket

Hi Guys. I am in the process of putting a 304 into a HT and have come accross an issue which i am sure has been solved by someone else before. The standard 304 Alternator bracket is too low and the alternator has no room for adjustment before hitting chassis rail.
I have heard of some guys putting in early commodore brackets that are on the drivers side. My question is, are they up higher and will early commodore (assuming 308 engine) bracket fit on a 304 head?
any information would guide me in the right direction.
thanks guys

Another rare beast

A Molecraft converted 4x4 One tonner: https://www.gumtree....
It is very hard to find anything out about these.
Apparently they were made in WA and copied Arthur Haywards Overlander.
This has a Qld. mod plate which suggests that Molecraft weren't an approved second manufacturer like VEM.
They weren't as well finished as an Overlander. Look at the square plate the front spring hanger sits on - Overlanders had rounded corners on fittings like this.

Cat woman

For Lindsay, the original Monaro brochure pic.
It said "out to drive you wild."
For a 12 year old looking at her in 1968, that was pretty exciting.
Anyone know who she was?

Ban The Bike?

Interesting alternative view http://business.fina... : "Lawrence Solomon: Ban the bike! How cities made a huge mistake in promoting cycling

Cycling lanes consume more space than they free up, add to pollution and drain the public purse.

205/60/13 tyres.

We have to get some tyres for the EH soon.
There are 205.60.13 on it.
It's got Hankook 866 radials on it. We've found these very good all round, but apparently they aren't made any more.
What do you blokes have in this size and are they any good?
I can find Federal and Nankang tyres in this size online, but they both have bad reviews.
Any other suggestions without spending $1,000 on a set of Toyo or Yokohama semi slicks?

Car Phone...

CALLING ALL CARS
Another great find was the AWA two-way radio Carphone, also used in police cars, and mounted centrally on the dash. The optional, telephone-style hand piece, in lieu of the normal microphone, must have been a delight to use.

Upper tailgate handle

To remove the barrel do I remove the pin and should it pull apart ? Or do I need to soak it in oil for a while ? Any advise is appreciated
