1968 Holden HR ute Airforce car

So recently I've been given a 1968 Holden HR ute that belonged to my uncle and has been and his dads/ my grandfathers farm, I'm currently taking it up as a project car since I've fallen in love with it, after talking to my grandfather about the cars history mainly of his experiences driving it and the many pigs he use to transport in the tub he told me how the ute once belonged to the airforce and apparently used to transport the pilots around.

OK, asking again..... SHEDS

Are the sheds coming back?
If so when?
If not, can you say so?
Seems as though the online back up is now completely gone..
All the work that people did, all the how to's, all the years of collective information, gone?

Such valuable resources, some of which were not logged anywhere else.

Make a WB ute into HZ ute

I was wondering if it is at all possible to convert a WB ute into HZ ute. I know the front guards are different along with the bonnet. But are the front frames that are bolted to the cab the same for both models ?

Thanks in advance for clarification.

Engine and date code

Hi I've got a red 253 with the number 253H26403 and the date code is 19C6. From my understanding of how these work the engine code relates to a HT engine and the date code is for a engine made in 1976. Given that the engine number can be re-stamped (if someone reconditions an engine and shaves it off), does this mean it's a 1976 engine with a changed engine code? Also I'm not sure if it's normal or not, but the middle figures of 9C in the date code is much higher than the outside ones.

HQ suspension diagram anyone?

Gday. Im assembling the HQ suspension right now in the Brodie Belmont build. I have the correct bolts with correct nuts... yet do these cars have flat washers under the control arm nuts? Same bolts used front and rear for lower control arms.
I have three cars here- all have been mucked with over their lives. Some have washers some seem to have none. The new kits are showing no washers supplied. Just seems a little rough to expect the nut to spin up on the nicely painted bracketry.

Generator light EH red Motor

Hi al I've recently fitted a Bosch alternator to my 149 as it had nothing when I got it. The alternator has 4 connections 1 for power, 1 for warning light, and 2 others 1 is marked D+ and I can't remember what the other is. I have connected the original power wire(red) to the B+ on the alternator and the generator light wire(brown)to the warning light terminal and it charges well but the generator light does not go out( it has a 12V2w globe fitted. I know this question has probably been asked before but I want the generator light t go out.

VB SLE 308 310 Pack

I just bought a VB SLE 308
I was advertised as a 310 Pack

It does not have the vehicle IT Tags

No Tag on left strut bar.

I have a feeling this is not a real 310 Pack

Also car has a choke which is disconnected, is it correct that only 6 cylinders have a choke?

As per the roadworthy

VIN is AVB0248895

Engine number is VT 41275

I have a bad feeling that this is a SLE V6 converted to a V8
