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

4x4 VB Commodore

Seller says it's a genuine Molecraft conversion: https://www.gumtree....
I've seen the word Molecraft occasionally referring HQ/Z type 4x4 Holdens. Does anyone know anything about the Molecraft conversions? Were they the ones that used Landcruiser running gear?
This car could be a good project. I'd buy it just for the Cibie Oscars in the back.LOL.
This would be good in the shed with that white Hayward wagon.

HK steering column shrouds

Gday. I have just had the steering wheel for my HK reconditioned/repainted. Together with a refurbished dash pad and new paint on the dash, it is all looking mint. Unfortunately though, I forgot to do the steering column shrouds which now stand out terribly. Would anybody have a guide I can follow please to help remove the shrouds from the column? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

WB van, hq parts?

Hi all,

I've decided to resto my WB panelvan. I'm a bit of an amateur so was hoping a couple of you guys withy some experience and knowledge would be able to help me out.

1st - HQ front end. I love the look of the hq. DO the hq guards, nosecone, clip etc go on a wb? Think I heard somewhere they don't? Is it at all possible?

2nd - has anyone cut the rear quarters and light section out of hq-Hz ute and welded them into a wb? I much prefer the tail lights from the hq-Hz.

I have a donor hq shell which is pretty stuffed but good for the rear end.

Running hot and using lots of fuel

I have a 1979 HZ 202 red motor that has recently started running very hot, using lots of fuel (1/4 tank to 40ks) and is hesitating/pinging at speed (100km/h). I can't find any fuel leaks and I haven't messed with the carby so i can't put a finger on an action that i have done to explain why it's started it. Does anyone have any suggestions?
