Engine colour matching

Hi. What a great site, Holdenpedia to.

I am painting my engine and need to know were to get the original colour and finish (Mat, gloss, satin, other).

I understand that colour codes don't mean much these days, so I was hoping someone out there had a formuler or brand that can get the engine colour exact to factory 30yrs ago, as well as the factory finish. Most gloss looks to wet these days compared to the original finish 30yrs ago.

Date codes

Hello everyone.
Would anyone be able to tell me how to read engine and transmition date codes. I know this info is probably on here somewhere I just can't seem to find it.
I have a three speed manual with code D179 or DI79. I'm not sure if the second digit is a one or an I.
Thanks Dru.

9th annual EJ EH show and shine Queanbeyan

Howdy All,

Not sure if it's been mentioned on here, but there is an annual show and shine on here in canberra/ queanbeyan this sunday 24th May. Im not posting as a promoter of the event, just as general interest for anyone in the area! I believe its open to pre 80's holden so there should be a good mix of anything old holden there.

Just secured the original rego number from VicRoads custom plates for the OLD HK.

Car rego lapsed over 20 years ago and had to hand in the plates.

Got the old number and in the plates in traditional white writing on black background.
You little beauty!

Now to just get the car roadworthy and registered!

Engine Mounts for HD Holden

Hi, I've put my sump and gasket back on the HD wagon , (I've got my fingers crossed it doesn't leak)
I set out to get new engine mounts, I went to Repco (Enoggera ) and they gave me engine mounts listed for all HD Holden and red motors which looked like the old ones but way too big. Repco were unable to supply or find the right ones listed, I then tried Autobarn Enoggera who also had the same oversized mount listed.
The staff at Autobarn didn't stop there they rang around and found the correct ones and got it in that Arvo.
