Build date on tag: 09-78
Engine No. QL7xxxxx
Engine date stamp: 6Dx (either a 6 or 8, need to remove oil filter)

Bonnet measurements

Hi everyone
Would someone do me a huge favour please.
I'm endeavoring to fit an lx torana nose cone to my Uc but I haven't yet bought the bonnet and need the length from the rear corner to the front corner where it meets the nose cone. In other words the outside measurements of a lh or lx bonnet.
Thanks heaps

HQ-HZ GTS MIRROR ADJUSTMENT ??

Hello,

I’m trying to find out how to tighten the pivot point up that’s inside a HQ-HZ GTS mirror but so far I’ve come up blank ?? I’m hoping someone can help as every time I close either the drivers and/or passenger door the glass mirror moves and need to be readjusted !? I’ve come down to carrying a thin piece of bamboo to reposition the passenger mirror but it soon moves out of place anyway !?
I’m sure there must be a way but it’s got me beat at the moment so I’m hoping that the brains trust of oldholden.com must have an answer for me, fingers crossed ?! ‘Many Thanks’ !!

HK Monaro Speedo

Maybe this one is for Dr Terry.
Were the HK Holden's exported to any countries that would have required them to be fitted with a metric speedometer?

Hg idler set up

Hi
Does anyone know what the height/gaps are for setting up the steering idler on a HG Holden.
The shop manual tells how to set the distance between the face of the idler and idler bracket but no info on how far to screw the end in that goes into the draglink to get it to the right height, any help much appreciated.
Mark
