Are these ignition coils any good?

Hi fellas,

I've tested these coils (see picture) with a multimeter as described in the instruction booklet that came with the meter.

Temperature at the time was 28 °C. The resistance in the test leads was 0.2 Ohms.

The coils are as follows:

1. Bosch SU12R - was fitted to a 253 engine.

2. Bosch GT40R - was fitted to a 350 engine.

Both are now shelf items, but being the tight ass that I am, I don't want to discard items that might still be useful one day.

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.
