She a 179 reco'ed as a 186 10000 miles on the motor, 5000 miles on the auto & 92000 miles on the car.
She has oridginal paint is very clean. Just a few bubbles on 3 of the door skins I'll get into that! So overall she's very clean I checked everywhere for rust & I was very please.
I'll need a new NAME now! Any ideas?

5 Bolt 3 Speed Crash Identification

Image: 

The presence of the circled bolt identifies this as a 5 bolt 3 speed crashbox. The 4 bolt 3 speed crashbox has the Bolt fitted from inside the Bellhousing so it isn't visible without removing the coverplate..

Thanks HRAmbo for helping to resolve the issue.

How do you tell which EH crash box I have

Just wondering how you tell the difference between the early and late model EH Holden crash boxes. I've seen photos on the Internet but cannot pick which one I have.

Is there a part number somewhere so I can confirm. My wagon was originally a 149 engine but along the way a 179 has been fitted. I want to order a rebuild kit but there are 2 types available. Is there something obvious that I can confirm which box it is while it's still fitted.

Hi forum

Cheers in advance.

EH Crashbox

Just picked up a nice EH. The 3 speed crash box is difficult to engage 3rd gear and barely goes all the way in and then takes a bit to get it to come back out. All other gears work perfectly. I removed the linkages from the box and the problem lies in there. 3rd gear selector was hard to put in using a shifter as leverage and then tough to get back out. The others just click in nicely. I was planning on removing the selector side form the box and had a look in there. Is there anything else i should be aware of or possible problem?

SU Carby question!

Is there a single SU carby that will work on a red motor without having to go to a multiple set up like twin or triple?
If so what size or model?

Cheers, Mick.
