HR 1966 Shop Manual

Hi from Perth.

Found the manual I'd been looking for a while.

My mate Dave (has a torana & stato) and I were at
a Car Part car boot sale in Perth on the weekend.

Anyway got a good FJ instrument cluster, good HR
rear view mirror.

But the HR was falling apart so put in a large
white envelope in a pile of other manuals.

I have my mate Dave to thank as I never saw it.

Holden Fuel pump

Hi I have a VN Holden 3.8 v6 fitted into my Bedford Van, it retains the bedford Fuel Tank. I need to replace the Fuel Pump and filter, but not sure what has been used( photos attached) I know it is from a Holden but not VN? looks more like a EFI VK Fuel Pump, mount and Dampers? Can anyone help out as to what Holden it is from, seems to work fine in this setup, as per the photo the Fuel tank has two lines coming from it , so take it, one is a return line and also looks like some kind of regulator as well?. Thanks...

WB Statesman aircon hoses

I have had all sorts of grief getting my WB's aircon in order over the last year. Bought a reco A6 compressor (the original one had the clutch/pulley missing), new receiver dryer, NOS condensor, replaced the vacuum pods...
Yesterday I noticed that the air isn't blowing that cold anymore (just had a regas a few weeks ago when I had to replace the orifice tube).
One of the high-pressure ac hoses is leaking, just pin hole leaks but it needs to be replaced.

Like the sandmans Holden have very little information on these models.

HR Sales Brochure

Happy Australia Day from Perth.

For all HR lovers - I found the ultimate HR buyers guide.

The Holden facts must be from 1966 as there is no 186S option.

I loved green special centrefold as it is exactly like my pops.

The X2 - not premier option cream HR standard is so clean
with only X2 on the front quarter panel.

I've never seen a list of the HR interior colours before.

Happy 50th anniversary to all HR's (hit 51 in April!!)

Donno
