Holden Colour Codes

I hadn't noticed this before on Unique Cars so it might be something new (probably just didn't see it)

Holden Colour Charts, codes, paint and interior.

A - L http://www.uniquecar...

M - Z http://www.uniquecar...

Scroll down to bottom for year of manufacture.

Might be handy for some of us :-)

Sump thing wrong

Hello all.

I bought a 'hr' sump from my local hr specialist for the engine I've been getting built.

When I pulled my engine out to do the swaparoo the sumps were completely different.

Can anyone tell me what I have bought rather then a hr sump? I am thinking lc/j

As you'd imagine very annoyed at the moment

Cry for help Bedford motorhome

Hi all, thankyou all so much for your advice & comments. I can't put pics up until Wednesday when my partner finally arrives back from WA but he has given me the following info: She is a 1976 CF, long wheel base body with a starcraft motorhome back. 202 red holden motor. Petrol & gas. Automatic transmission with original auto shifter. 4 core radiator, which apparently is leaking. So grateful for all the replies. I have contacted BUGA as well. Thanks:-)

Cry for HELP!

Hi all, this is a desperate cry for help. My partner & i have an old Mercedes sunbus as our home, which we travel around in.It has cost us a bit over the last 12 mths, had to get a total re-build on the motor. Anyway he has always loved Bedfords and was thinking of downsizing to something i could drive as well. His eyesight is failing due to diabetes. I'm a whopping 4ft 11" tall, so my feet don't even reach the pedals of the bus, and no way can i see over the dash. We found a 1976 Bedford motor home on line for $6,000.00 only downer was it was in WA.

WTB: Quadrajet metering rods

Hello Ladies and Gents,
I'm currently looking for some primary metering rods to suit a Quadrajet carby. I'm looking for some 48M rods though would consider 46M or 47M rods aswell, but they must be M series rods.
An obscure request, I know. Hopefully someone has a crate of parts kicking around the shed Very Happy

I would also consider secondary metering rods other than AN, CX, CH, DH, or DA as a way to broaden my collection.

WTB: Holden 6

Hi guys,

Chasing a few things.

1. a warm/hot Holden 6, preference for 186 however will look at others. Around the $1500 mark. In qld or northern nsw
2. reputable, well priced media blasters in Brisbane, someone who knows what their doing and wont warp the [Naughty Pottyword] out of panels.
3. a decent, well priced painter/panel beater or even a bloke who does a good job from home.

Need to get this HR off the ground and on the road.

email: brendon.moorfield@gm...

Burning Oil

If an engine is burning oil and fouling the spark plugs will the use of synthetic oil stop this happening?
I have been told that synthetic oil burns to a white residue and today i was talking to a guy having trouble with plugs fouling in his vehicle. Obviously an engine rebuild is the ultimate answer but he doesn't have the time or the gold to do it at present!

Twin Cab TJ - WTF diesel engine

Hello, I recently bought a TJ twin cab bedford (maybe 195n year) which has a naturally aspirated diesel engine. I suspect that the engine is either a 200 or 220 ci. It has longitudinal fins and bedford cast on the valve cover. It has a 4 speed manual box that adapts direct to engine without any conversion evident - therefore an original box / engine match. The vehicle is currently green, yet another colour is underneath - I suspect it is PMG red/orange. The tray is not original and chassis has a short extension.

Our "General Motors- Holdens Ltd" Bedford

I am looking for help to identify a Bedford truck.

Google searching photos leads me to believe that it is an "A" model from the 1950's.

This is what I have found on the truck:-

On left chassis rail,near front spring hanger, this is stamped into the chassis
"D3LC2 29473 M"

On right chassis rail, a rivetted tag containing
"Chassis No 29473

On firewall, a plate containing
"Body Identification"
"No D cab 3327"
"Trim No 50-771"
"Paint No 256-6019"
