HZ Holden door catch

The drivers door when opening from the outside opens to the burst catch only and from there will not open or release the door. From there I need to press the lock pin down and up then open the handle again otherwise the interior door handle opens the lock fine from closed or when caught on the burst catch. I’ve adjusted the striker pin all the way out. Any help or suggestions appreciated.

HQ one tonner

Well l got a neighbour that's 60 odd and he has a HQ one tonne ute hasn't had a speedo for five yrs and no fuel gauge,l offered to help told him it will only be a cable more than likely,he was told by his mechanic that the dash had to come out well anyway l pulled the cable out and it was broke so he got one of the long ones from repco and got a mate to cut it and join the end on it well the cable had actually broke into three pieces so l got mine out off the HQ to fix his all good except him walking on me and talking about reinventing the wheel and kept pinching my beer etc etc

Surging 186 whilst at a steady speed

Hi, my 186 has just got a surging problem when at a constant speed, if i take my foot of the gas its fine, if i put my foot flat down at take off its fine, slow pickup also surges. It seems to idle fine. Recently replaced battery and its just been on an out of town run 4+hours of open road driving. Any suggestions on what this most likely could be? Thx

chrome molding

Good evening fellow members,
Id like to try and find some info on these extra chrome molding and the extra vinyl/painted roof, I can't seem to find anything in my books, or find on good old google. A gentleman in my car club has just given me a full set of All chrome moldings along the door/window and these as well,I can only see them on HQ/HJ only
are they a dealer special or a limited thing from the factor ?
Can someone point me in the right direction on where to look
Any help would be much appreciated

As I always say
Stay safe all

Just fitted the twins on the Dirty D

On the first start up the single carb was way too small for the new engine combo, my intention was to run in on the single Stromberg but it's way too small for the task.
So the on goes the X2 inlet & twin
Strombergs & all of a sudden it's idling much smoother & just needs some fine tuning now.
