Your advice is welcome.

Hi all.

I've had my one tonner for about a month now. I replaced the speedo two weeks ago. (last one did not work at all when I got the ute). Problem is that it reads about 80Kh when I'm doing at least 100Kh (Keeping up with the rest of the traffic. It has a Celica 5spd but not sure what the diff ratio is. Any idea on how I might get this corrected?

The other item I would like some advise on is changing the dizzy for an electronic version. I have the Red 202 no mods yet but will be putting a set of extractors, and about a 2" exhaust.

From Indonesia

Hi....our holden HJ Statesman De Ville has just had a body makeover....however it is hard to start, needs a lot of fuel pumping to get her going, and then seems to go okay until the engine is turned off. If the temperature is up to half on the guage it refuses to start until cooled down to a quarter on the guage. One local mechanic says its the distributor rotor thats at fault, another says the holden needs a new carburettor. Looking for some good advice as this holden looks so good......email me an I'll send you a photo but I'd sure appreciate some info on the starting problem.

Original Colours

I've just scored a HZ ute in undercoat, ready to be resprayed and thought I'd keep it original.

So I was just wondering if anyone knows of, or can point me towards, a list of all the Holden colours for the HZ?

PLZ HELP!!!!! ahhhhhhhhh

hi, Got a few questions. im confused as in what colour my engine is still? the engine number is VL67909. So im guessing that its blue. also whats the VL stand for?

by taking the tappet cover off, and looking at it, does the amount of springs tell you how many valves the head has got. because i have got 12 springs. but that doesnt explain why ive got a red inlet manifold bolted on and a single throat strommy.
