Riveted OH rims

Hi Folks,
I bought some old Holden 13" rims from a garage sale. One of them has the centre held onto the rim with big rivets from the inside. Anyone seen these before? Are they heavy duty, or just old school?
Cheers Dave

HG VAN FRONT SUSPENSION

My Van is a 5/70 HG, Body number 1A Chassis HG00013A and when cleaning the front suspension while dismantled for a rebuild I found an 'X' stenciled on the top surface a little to the Drivers Side of centre as well as 'AM' stenciled on the PS in front of the engine mount. My HG Ute also has 'AM' stenciled on it. Can anyone shed any light on why these stencils are there? Particularly the 'X'? I have only ever seen part numbers on them.

What's this number mean?

Hi
OK, so on the HZ and WB I have there is a 4 digit code on the bottom of the A Pillar below and forward of the bottom door hinge. It is fairly small, stamped and is LETTER, NUMBER, LETTER, NUMBER. I can find bucket loads of VIN info but no mention of this. And it doesn't correspond to any numbers on ANY of the firewall build plates. Can't find it in Holdenpedia....
Any thoughts guys?
THanks

Holden/Holdex filing cabinet?

I found this old filing cabinet in a garage. It has a HOLDEX badge on it that looks exactly like a early 30s HOLDEN badge but has an X instead of an N at the end spelling HOLDEX. I’ve googled it but can’t find much about HOLDEX filing cabinets only that they made fridges and ovens trading as General Motors Holden Frigidaire.If anyone could give some info on whether this is a Holden cabinet or a very early trademark/copyright infringement!

HG wagon tailgate

Calling 68surfwagon
Could anyone please send me pictures of the HK, HT or Hg tailgate, outer rubber, setup for the wind up window.

I've been told that they don't make them anymore but they are a piece of stainless steel, bent, to form a u shape.. then that is screwed to the tailgate and the rubber is wedged in between the bent part. and the other edge rubs against the glass

yes a loose description but I expect a picture would explain it better.

I have two tail gates and neither have this part

Thanking you in advance
Kel

Good morning,

Is anyone selling replacement vinyl floors for HR Holdens in any other colour than black?

After heaps of searching I can only locate black reproduction vinyl floor. My vehicle is however Lurline blue with matching interior.

Does anyone either supply the blue vinyl floors or happy to paint and ship to Tasmania?

Cheers

Information ref HZ cassette player

Can any one provide info on where the cassette player as an option was fitted to the HZ GTS.

IN the Brochures I have the radio is a white needle in both the Premier and the GTS I'm wondering if like the HX LE Coupe if this optioned was requested was the centre console exchanged for one similar to the coupe and the Statesman Caprice so that the cassette player would be fitted into the space that this console was used for in those models

Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated bearing in mine that I only want restore my car to factory specs/authorised options

HQ TH400 shifter cable

I've just installed a 350 chev and TH400 into my 71 HQ Monaro (was 202 & Trimatic) and I purchased a factory cable-operated T Bar shifter to suit the factory console and a new cable from Rare Spares, the shifter fits perfect to the floor and lines up with the console but the cable appears to be too long and extends way past the selector shaft making me doubt it would ever work, the second issue I have is locating a selector lever plate and cable mounting bracket to suit this setup.

wb power steering-WB Holden ute

Greetings all.
I have a slow weepy leak thats coming out of the high pressure hose side of the power steering pump.
Dribbles out and under the pump itself and drops itself straight on top of the rag joint , which is now munted. I have unscrewed the hose for a look thinking that it may have an O ring that is dried out but alas there is no o ring of any sort.
Is there supposed to be an o ring around the threaded end so when its tightened up it seals ?
I spoke to Repco who found a listed part but its only the size of the flared end of the pipe itself.
