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.

Holden Fuel pump

Hi I have a VN Holden 3.8 v6 fitted into my Bedford Van, it retains the bedford Fuel Tank. I need to replace the Fuel Pump and filter, but not sure what has been used( photos attached) I know it is from a Holden but not VN? looks more like a EFI VK Fuel Pump, mount and Dampers? Can anyone help out as to what Holden it is from, seems to work fine in this setup, as per the photo the Fuel tank has two lines coming from it , so take it, one is a return line and also looks like some kind of regulator as well?. Thanks...

vc vb - vl front doors...

vc vb - vl front doors...are they the same? Im almost certain there is a few mm difference in the length of the doors... the vl door appears to be slightly shorter than the vc door.
I think this cos my vc door got damaged and I got told vl door would fit, that they were the same vb to vl.
I got a vl door painted it and had it fitted and the gap where it meets the gaurd is at least 5mm wider than the passenger side original front door.
so Im trying to work out, once n for all, if vl doesnt fit right, or if theres another issue there.

Converting a HR from manual to auto

I'm currently in the market for a HR and all I seem to across is manuals and after losing my right leg in an accident I am no longer able to drive manuals.

If I were to buy a manual, how hard is it and how much can I expect to pay for a conversion to a powerglide or other auto?

Many thanks.

Jason

badges info please

for my wb statesman - i am going to send off the headlight reflectors to be re metalized and was wondering if anyone knows the process used on the exterior plastic badges - "caprice" and "series 2" as mine are faded and no longer have shine.

if vacuum metalizing is suitable ill send them off at the same time, just didnt want to have it done if it say peels off in months for example.

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
