FJ Radio Blank

This is for the FJ Radio Information Page.

The photo is showing the FJ Blank plate which covers
the radio holes cut into the dash.

The Air chief radios mentioned in the FJ newspaper
adverts of the day mention 2 radio models to choose.

The front plate appears the same on the both models
but one has a horizontal dial cut into the top and
one doesn't (shown in the picture).

Rattle developed today in the Grey under load

After a nice day out for a short cruise, and plodding around 50mph in the EK, a slight incline in the road and then a rattle, raised its head under load, not sounding like a normal bearing knock. Under any acceleration whatsoever, the rattle appears, at idle you can barely notice it. I certainly noticed that it was also a bit fluttery under any load, doesn't sound good. I'll get it checked out tomorrow, just a little disappointing as I've only had the ute for a week, and it was getting along pretty well, I had it booked to get it in this week for a solid service and tune and check over.

48-215 starts but dies after 3-5 seconds

Hi,

Have not had my 48-215 out in a while - 4-5 years :-(

When I try to start it fires up well revs high for 3-5 seconds and then stops.

Seems to me it is not getting enough fuel. Could this be fuel pump problem? Carburetor float problem or jet blocked?

I don't think it is on the ignition system side as it turns over strongly and does start and when it is running seems to be firing on all cylinders.

Any assistance greatly appreciated.

Perth FJ - Air Chief Radio Stations

Hi Guys

Don't see many posts from Perth. As I'm doing work on
my FJ interior - here's some Special bits ready to go.

You may note I have no radio station tuner guide on the
front of my Air Chief radio.

So any Perth FJ owners or anyone with a photo of the FJ
radio stations from a 1953 air chief radio (out of a
Perth assembled - sold FJ) please post it.

Experienced mechanic for Holden FX/FJ in Perth

Hi, can anyone recommend a mechanic in Perth that has good experience working on Holden FX/FJ. I've just inherited 1953 48-215 which is in fairly good condition but needs some mechanical work.

Thanks for any recommendations.
Cheers
Rob

Tyre pressures and other questions

Am running a set of Maxxis 185 x 80 13" 90S tyres and if you go by the Holden specs the psi should be 22 lb for crossply tyres. This sounds a bit too low for radials. Question is what are other FC owners running their radial tyres at. Old story too much pressure and wear the centres out too low and that won't be right either.

FX-FJ Motor

Can anyone tell me why the 1953-63 grey motor
harmonic balancer is different to the pre 1953?

Is this how you tell the difference between a
132.5 from an FJ and a 132.5 from an FX? Are
there any other obvious differences?
