FJ Grey Motor Carbie Options

The FJ had a 132.5 Grey Motor

Carburettor Options

a) Factory - Any Sports Options or only single barrel Stromberg?

b) Dealer Options - When did Nasco produce twin manifolds?

c) After Market Options

Twins

Triples

Superchargers

When I was searching through a bunch of saved photos I found this one - not sure who collected these manifolds but good job! If you have one not on the wall ... well dig it up and photograph it :)

FC Sunday run

Up and out onto the road for a blast out to the country
Bluey was all go and settled into the usual Holden gudgeon slapping rythme
She was in her element and apart from odd rattle or two all was well with the world
Nothing is better than a fine sunny day and the old FC humming along
Few pictures attached

FJ Holden Power Brakes

Hi I am thinking of either changing the drum brakes on my 1954 FJ to either power boosted or a disc brake conversion. Any ideas on either would be appreciated.
Thanks Bryan

Paint Colour

Hi guys.
Been a long time since I’ve been on here...

I’m after some paint info for an FJ.
My paint code is 253-16321.
When doing a google search on the dulux colour 6321 it comes back as a brown colour. I rang dulux and on their record sl it have 3 options. One is a baby blue colour, and then two brown colours.
Can anyone give me a colour for this.

1958 FC Special Sedan(Station Wagon)

Am trying to follow Rare Spares video on how to insert the inner door Seals on my wagon
Can anyone post a few clear pictures of this area on their cars so I can see the run of the rubber
There appears no steel channeling on the FC across the top of the door only the steel edge for the wind lacing to hang on.
So do the FE FC only have the inner seal across the bottom & up both sides of the door openings ??
& yes I know I should have noted 3 years ago when I ripped it all out but every old picture carefully avoids showing me what I want to see.

FC Ute rat rod!!/I just found it out the back of hill end and drove it home look.

Hi all!! I am doing an FC Ute at the moment rat/found in the bush style, I am a spray painter so I know a few tricks but I have only ever restored my other Holden’s FJ ect to stock so I am testing myself with this hole rusty look, just asking for any information on doing that full on rusty look?? Like the HR wagon I have seen on here, I won’t be doing the hole Ute just the tops of the guards, roof, bonnet and maybe some other small spots, I haven’t worked in a shop for a few years now due to a back problem but I can still and love throwing the gun around and restoring my old Holden’s!!

FJ service information

Hi Guys,

Im not a car guy..I build and fly recreational aircraft. So I guess, I know how to use tools, and are quite competent with maintaining two aircraft myself. etc.

I need some info or help with an FJ.

So can some one point me in the right direction to drop the oil and service an old FJ business sedan. I believe the car has no oil filter..is that right..? and an oil bath air filter(something I know nothing about).

The car is in good condition and had a ground up resto about 12 years ago...and has been driven about 5000 miles in that time.

Went to buy a HQ and came home with a HB

Was too late to get the HQ I had wanted to look at (3hrs away), it sold as I was on my way to check it out which was a bit disappointing. Totally my fault as I had to delay the viewing, anyway when I got the message I pulled over. Thought it was worth seeing what else was out there as I had a bit of cash on me and the trailer hooked up.
Found this.
Unrestored 1967 HB Torana S with what looks to be a genuine 27K Miles on the clock.
Everything works, even the interior light.

Fuel pump and Vacuum pump combined

My FC Wagon came with combined fuel/vacuum pump but now I have fitted an electric wiper set up and the vacuum side of the pump is not plumbed up or needed it makes a whistling noise which can be stopped by plugging off one of the vacuum connection points at the base of the pump. I realise I could replace pump with just a fuel pump and get away with this noise problem. Any reasons why just blocking off an actuating vacuum side of the pump would cause a problem long term.
Thoughts and ideas appreciated from those who have solved this on there cars. Thanks FC25250

Restored 48

recently on display at the Adelaide 500 - photo doesn't do it justice - beautiful car...I did notice though some of the panel gaps/fit could have been better...from what I've read that wasn't too uncommon back in the day...
