Torana 308 block

I would like some opinions regarding a Torana 308 block I'm thinking of selling.
It has is a legit genuine HT prefix engine number [not someone's re-stamp] it's date code is 18 H 7, to me this means its a 18 August 1977 casting, so LX SLR 5000 or SS 5L and the good thing is it's a standard bore. Both heads have a cast number of 2812174, they appear to have larger than standard valves. So what's your thought's please ?
Thanks Mal

HZ Kingswood Dash High Beam light

Hi, I am having trouble solving a dash light issue HZ Kingswood 202,3 Sp man. The light is the Blue High Beam indicator on the dash. It does not work, so first I checked all fuses with test light, OK, then after some other testing decided to replace the globe, dash unscrewed, globe replaced, didnt work, then I thought maybe the carrier, so swapped with one I know is working, still not working. The other lights work, oil, brake, alt and indicators.

Any guidance would be appreciated. Richard

HR 1966 Shop Manual

Hi from Perth.

Found the manual I'd been looking for a while.

My mate Dave (has a torana & stato) and I were at
a Car Part car boot sale in Perth on the weekend.

Anyway got a good FJ instrument cluster, good HR
rear view mirror.

But the HR was falling apart so put in a large
white envelope in a pile of other manuals.

I have my mate Dave to thank as I never saw it.

The dead shed

I live in vain hope the sheds galleries will one day be turned back on - but to be fair I don't think it will happen. In the meantime I have been able to get some archive links but only some of it works.

They say once you post it on the internet its there forever - but where is there? Good question. Some of it can be seen here;http://web.archive.o...
If Rusty can get it going again that will be great. Any news John?
Cheers Andrew.
