Genuine original Carby HZ 253

Does anybody know what is the correct number a HZ 253 Auto should have for a Carby. I am currently looking at replacing mine, the number on mine is a 23-1111. Is that the original number that the car should have or is there other options?

It’s a 2 barrel Stromberg.

1966 ute

I have a 1966 Holden ute, its at Bunyip Panels at the moment, Peter and his team doing a wonderful job on the body, finally got paint on it last week, please feel free to jump onto his website and have a look at the pics.
I want to put a hard lid on the rear but so far are unable to find a manufacturer to make the hard covers for utes this age. Does anyone out there know of a manufacturer?
thanks for your time
Duane and Jenny

Old an grey

Fred Foster Twin Cam Grey motor was apparently made before Waggott . This is only one known to survive other one went missing both used in boats . Cast in Brisbane apparently . Late 1952. A self taught and fulltime metallurgical genius Fred Foster got the ball rolling with his six part alloy sandwich. It was a brilliantly simple design based on some $5 plans chalked into his floor at Fosters factory.

Tuesday tip

A mate at work is restoring( dare I say a XT GT Ford) its a gold in colour and lots of chrome, so that makes it all right I guess lol
Anyway He asked me what I use to polish my Chrome work and remove water spots that's not going to cost an arm and a leg, as there's so meany different chemicals on the market.
This is what I have used for meany years(as a detailer) and my dear old dad used it on ALL his cars and Bike (BSA),
Go buy a "Coke 600mm" and drink it (with or without your favorite beverage) lol

HQ Holden Panel Van Upper Tailgate Lock Barrel

I don't Have a key to the lock and I am trying to remove the lock barrel out of T handle on upper tailgate. I have removed the pin just above the square slide pin on the round shaft and people have said the lock barrel should pop out and key numbers are on the side of the lock barrel. I removed the pin and after trying just about everything, nothing still comes apart. Is it just the lock barrel that comes out of the T handle or some other way it comes apart. Hopefully some one has had success with these locks Any help appreciated. Cheers

wb idler arm

Can someone give me the procedure to fit a wb idler arm ?

I've looked at youtube clips but all video show idler arm supports which are fixed not turned in or out.

I guess you turn the support bracket all the way in and then back it off 1 turn ?

Thanks for any help.

I’ve been trying to remove the steering wheel out of my HZ and it just isn’t budging. How are other people getting the wheels off? I’ve bought a steering wheel puller but can’t find any matching bolts to go in?
