what a trip

Image: 

What a trip. 3days and over 1200 key doing the Chrissy thing seeing the family in my HJ PREM from Cairns to Port Douglas up to Mareeba on the Atherton tablelands down to Innisfail to Townsville and than back home. Not only with the wife and kids but with our old Holden and all went well, well it did rain ha ha.
A couple of years ago i got one of those wiper motors from castle rod shop with the conversion kit. as i live in NTH QLD it rains a bit ha ha, we can get 100mm in a 12 hour.
This wiper motor got a work out and NEVER MIST A BEAT.
"IF your going to replace yours, than this is the G O"
This was taken when we got home. and had a quick bath and is now put to bed ha ha (my wife yells,"don't forget to give it a hug and kiss goodnight")

Need to re-tap 3x Exhaust Flange Stud holes? What tap's?

Hi, I have a 1981 VC Commodore with Starfire 4cyl Motor.

I'm re-doing the manifold gasket but the 3x exhaust Flange studs are heat rusted solid.
One has snapped off and I've drilled it out close to the thread sides.

The other two are complete but I plan to remove them also.

One of the local stores suggested they were 3/8" studs? Is this correct?

Also I now need to understand what the correct "Tap" is to buy.

What are these rim markings

What are these markings on Holden rims, I have 3 different rims and cant figure out what cars they came off. One is a Holden 22 stamped 13x4.5 8/57. 2nd is a 6 Holden 12.65 13x4.5 and the other is a 42 holden 14". Ultimately I am trying to replace my trailer tyres which were the Holden 22's.

Speedo is ~20% out, f#@¥ knows how...

Hi all you instrument experts out there in the Oldholdenverse... I've got a major mind boggling problem with my HX Statesman DeVille speedo & odo that run about 20% out when I GPS'd my speed at 100kmph. It's a 5L, runs on 215/65 R14's & is fitted with a 1:2.78 diff, T400 (dunno which of the 3 gear combos it has- brown 15 tooth, orange 16 or red 17) & yellow gear on the speedo cable. The original Stato dash was pulled out & all the gauges tested & they work fine. I tested all the gauges on my GTS dash and they too all work fine.

straight 6 water pump part number

I have a Coretech waterpump, part number CWP815, and would like to know whether it is "big" or "small" hub. I Think HG-K-T 186 came out with the "small" hub originally.
On the CWP815, The lentgth between centres of the fan mounting holes is 38mm.
Also, were the water pumps on black\blue motors longer snout?

HQ standard tyre size

A tyre size question if I may... I've got a set of standard 14x5 steel rims and hub caps that I want to use to replace the old mags on my 253 HQ Kingswood sedan. The early '70s tyre size list in the workshop manual is a little confusing to this non-expert. What would be the modern equivalent tyre size that most closely matches the originals? The car is more-or-less a daily driver so I'm after modern tyres for safety and general performance rather than period correct vintage style reproduction tyres. For owners of stock/restored HQs, what tyre size are you running on these rims?
