I'm getting the seats trimmed for a HJ GTS Coupe and my
trimmer wants to know if they had map book pockets in the back
of the front seats.

Factory 304 rocker arm ratio

Hi, just trying to find out what would be the best roller rocker arm ratio would be best for a mild 304. I guess I need to start with finding out what the standard rocker ratio is first, so if someone could guide me in the correct direction to find out I can then decide what to go for. having said all that 1.65 seems the most common for aftermarket rockers, any comments would be appreciated.
Thanks Mal

Old EH Van In A Mag

Hi People

I know this is a long shot but im trying to find a copy of either Street Machine or Van wheels with my dads car in it for his birthday.
Its a Blue HR from VIC with statesman front end and was in the mag in about 83 or 84. Its bloody hard to find any details and i dont want to ask him because he misses the car so much and i dont want him to know why im looking for it. As i said its a long shot but you never know what you might find. Thanks in advance

HT Gearbox

Hi folks,
I have a HT 253 without a gearbox.
To cut a long story short,I took the casing to a guy in Tempe and apparently he died. By the time I found this out the workshop had been cleared out and the building re-purposed. (This is what I get for being super patient and never hassling people who work on my things. )
Been looking at online ads for boxes. The are pretty pricey.
Anyone got one in reasonable condition I could buy? Sydney area. Cant remember what was in it and the case is gone. Poss Aussie 4 speed.

possible export hr

hello i have a hr special sedan and it has a few odd things that i cant work out,its pretty much all original, but it has a ball joint front end with drum brakes, it has never had a heater fitted, not even the leavers in the cab, it has a factory white roof, but its the same colour as the rest of the car under the white, it has the premier chrome strip under the back window and the windscreen squirter motor sits on top of the wiper motor, it had some sort of decal on the tappet cover and ive never heard a red motor that sounds anything like it, it has a spacer plate between carb and manifol

Early Commodore door lock knobs

Hi all. First time poster.

Can anybody tell me the thread type on the door lock knobs in VB, VC, VH, VK Commodores? I'm keen to buy or make custom knobs and the thread type is proving a little bit illusive. M4 is too small, M5 is too big. 3/16 doesn't work either. I can't find info anywhere. All the custom ones for sale say that they suit older Holden's and fords, but nothing for commodores.

EH Handbrake Return Spring

Hi everyone, I am currently rebuilding an EH wagon for my wife. The wagon is bog stock and when it was purchased it needed 4 replacement floors. What I need please is a picture or the measurements of where the handbrake return spring attaches as I am guessing that it attaches to the RHR floor panel somewhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks..............ChrissoEH

HR Radio

Hi T - Here is the HR Special Air Chief Radio photo.

Doesn't look as good as the 1966 sales brochure.

The tranny is however not connected to the 2 Farad
voltage capacitor, amp and sub behind the premier arm
rest (stereos in the glove box!).

HR Air Chief Radio

Hi T

For the Radio Page you should put in the HR Air chief
Radio image from page 15 of the 1966 HR Sales brochure
which I posted a few weeks ago.

Did you want me to take a photo of my HR Special air
chief - which looks identical to the advert image with
the HR special silver dash?
