HZ holden ute

Right.

Want to build the dream HZ ute. Something that sounds good and has fuel economy as well. Want to build this and use it as a daily drive. The problem is... I'm 18 and and this might be a little way off. What I want to get is advice. So maybe I'll just start listing the questions and if anyone wants to answer any of them, I'd really appreciate it.

F.N.P.

It would be hard to keep a straight face if they pulled you over.

rebuild a 253 or replace it - What do ya reckon and how much $$

Hi Guys, 1st time poster .... i have just purchased off a mate a 73 HQ UTE with a 253V8 in it .. It hasn't been driven or started in over 2 years ... and its on gas/petrol as well ...although i will get rid of the gas crap... It does leak some oil but was running good before he parked it in his shed, and let the rego run out ... My questions are 1) What would it cost ( APPROX) to rebuild the engine and work it a bit ... Give it a lumpy cam and make it sound nice at idle ...

Ebay score

I'm taking a CD player up to Nathan this weekend so he can put it in his EA Flacon.
I thought I'd look on ebay for one of those plug in wiring adapter connectors.
I found one for $15.99 with free postage.
The listing had a $15.99 discount code.
Bought it, entered the code.
Net cost to me: Nothing. Zero. Zilch.
Good shopping.

Door trim and seal panels

I just came across this on ebay: https://www.ebay.com...
They have door trim backing panels for many of our old Holdens and other cars.
They also have pre-cut 200micron thick pre-cut plastic sheet for sealing the inside of our doors.

Position of studs (revets) for windscreen trim on HJ Caprice

Hi all, happy Sunday.

Two questions regarding my HJ Caprice (not Kingswood):

1. Does anyone know where I can find a rough positioning of the small studs (now rivets) that the clips slide onto? I had to remove several of mine to do rust repairs, need to replace them, and don't have a "donor" car to check positioning. It would appear that the front has 6 across the top and 9 across the bottom, and the rear has 8 across the top, four down each side, and xxxxx (????) across the bottom, but the bottom ones don't appear to be symmetrical (left to right) for some reason.

EH service schedule

It's from my EH service book. It's only missing the first three tear off pages.
I wonder how many ever had the full 15,000 mile service done?
At today's dealer rate 8 hours labour would probably cost $1,200 or more.

Ej Holden jumps out of 3rd gear after clutch overhaul

I know from what I have read EJ's with crashbox are a bit prone to jumping out of 3rd gear from time to time, but it only uses to be when on a long run and then coasting downhill.

Keroed & polished

Looooong overdue. Came up Ok but far from perfect. Many thanks for the tips Al & DDD! I'll start on the interior next week. Thankfully the interior is close to perfect but cleaning the front carpet will be interesting. Any tips DDD on cleaning carpets without pilling and fraying the fibres? My carpets are the modern repros.
Thanks,
Alby
