Hp 179 in a land rover

Hi,

I have a siezed hp179 in an old landy.

I have been able to get the fly wheel going a bit , maybe 3” to the right and left. Dosing the cylinders with diesel. In order to help things along , i was wondering if anyone can tell me what size the bolts are that fit onto the harmonic balancer so i can make up some kind of wrench.

Cheers,

David

Putting A/C into an HZ ute

I'm considering buying an HZ ute without AC, however I would like to install AC without molesting the ute. The choices are find a complete unit from anything up to a WB, get a modern compressor and and install, or go for something after market (I prefer no knee freezer).

Does anyone have experience in this area and I would be grateful for any suggestions. I don't have time, tools or experience to fit myself so would be after someone to do it for me.

Thanks

One tonner cabs

Are all one tonner cabs the same? I have a hz one tonner and I'm going to replace the cab and put all the interior in the new cab. Am I limited just to a hz cab?

Appears to be a virgin bore 😊

Strip off the head of the 202 for HD & it appears to be a virgin bore, the head gasket even has Holden stamped into it.

HR 50th Engine rebuild

Finally the engine coming together. About 12 months to find a virgin Block, six months waiting for Pistons etc. Still it'll be worth the wait when I put the foot down on that first drive.

HR 50th rebuild

My Xmas presents finally arrived. New V6 conversions IFS for my HR & a Supra 5 Speed. Got the brake booster & Rack end kit. Got a rebuilt VS power steering rack.
