EH 3 speed linkage setup

Hi there,
I've just about finished my EH ute resto and trying to set up the 3 on the tree linkage.
It worked fine in the donor car, but can't seem to get it working right after reinstalling it. I have put new bushes in the top linkage and welded and rebuilt the bottom linkages.
Anyone got some advice on the basic setup followed by fine tuning
Cheers,
CB.

EH Handbrake Return Spring

Hi everyone, I am currently rebuilding an EH wagon for my wife. The wagon is bog stock and when it was purchased it needed 4 replacement floors. What I need please is a picture or the measurements of where the handbrake return spring attaches as I am guessing that it attaches to the RHR floor panel somewhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks..............ChrissoEH

Early Red Motors

An old motor mechanic recently told me that the first batch of the early "red" motors (149 and HP) were made in Canada before they were produced here in Australia!
Is this correct?

Cheers, Mick.

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.

Twin carb on eh

I am installing a twin carb setup on my eh sedan. I am unsure of how the bracket comes of the firewall to connect the accelerator to the carb. Not sure if I need to do some grinding and bending or if there is a kit I need to do the hooking up.
Photos are very helpful.
Thanks DF.

4 Bolt 3 Speed Crash Identification

Image: 

The presence of the circled bolt identifies this as a 4 bolt 3 speed crashbox. The 5 bolt 3 speed crashbox has the Bolt fitted from outside the Bellhousing and from the rear.

Thanks Stock-EJ for helping to resolve the issue.

Rubber Floor mats or Carpet?

Hi guys, I still have the original brown rubber floor mats in my wagon, and unfortunately they are deteriorating and looking unsightly. I am in two minds whether to replace with the rubber repro's from Obsolete Rubber (only in black), or put carpet in. The EH special is pretty much stock (check my shed) and I would like to keep it that way for resale value, however I know carpet is beneficial for letting the underfelt breath if wet or it sweats, plus it is more than half the price.
