Holden Info

Block ID.

Hi guys!
Cheers for the add to your group.

My brother has just picked up a VH commodore with a HG 308 block. Nov 11 70. (L110)

There are some other numbers on the side after the 308H30###.
There's a space then possibly L867
Would anybody be able to help us out with them last letter and numbers? Could be 4867.

Thanks heaps!

Mick.

Holden Gm torquemaster mc6 gearbox

Hi, I have a Holden GM Toquemaster MC6 Gearbox and I don't know what model car it's from. I had a couple of Toranas, but I had a VC Commodore Wagon too. I'm not sure if it's for a 6cyl or a 4cyl. Codes GM 92005999 COHAB, 9299678 HJ. Was told it was an MC6. Please help me out, really doing my head in. Thanks Damo.

HT Power Steering Clearance

Hi All

Been a while...so long so my sign in doesn't seem to work.

I'm just reaching out to the you all to ask if anyone knows if HT V8's had a different sump between manual and power steering options? We have had power steering in our HT (out of a Brougham) for the last 15 years with all working well and all of a sudden we have been pulled up on the PS Ram touching the bottom of the sump. The only thing to have occurred to the car since it was put in is new engine mounts about 4 years ago which I would have thought if anything would have lifted the engine up?

Holden EH 179HP Carbie?

Hi all,
I'm looking to restore an old EH holden running a 179HP motor. The motor itself is just stamped EH, but I am wondering what the factory carbie is for one of these. Is it by chance one of those tall single barrel strombergs? or did they come out with something different?

Thanks In Advance!

Lens paint

Just repainted my drivers side rear blinker lens, I did the passenger side a while back & it has held up pretty good.
I used a model car lens paint, I brush it on & you need to be slow & it go's on streaky & probably work better with a hobby spray gun.
