-V7Y

Question for you all about NSW emission regs of the early eights were they different to the rest of the country? I got told I was wrong at just commodores so I wont ask there again. Was it the case or are they correct and emission laws all ways were uniform across the country? I cant ask the bloke that told me this years ago as hes long dead. What I remember is early commodores sold in NSW had more emission controls than those sold in Victoria was that the case or have I thought this up and got the story wrong and have confused what ADR27c means?

202 Blue extractor leak.

Hi guys, I’ve been batltling a extractor leak on my 202, I’ve tried everything to fix it but can’t get it to seal, the manifold and extractors don’t sit flush so the previous owners cut the outer studs etc to get it right although now I can’t figure what goes where.

It’s running a Redline Torker 2 manifold and a unbranded set of exrtractors.

Boyanton Wray Holden Bentleigh Victoria

Photo of decal from HJ Kingswood purchased new from Boyanton Wray Holden in 1976 by my father in law. The car is being restored at the moment and the rear window decal is sadly deteriorating. A replacement would be great.

Rear Main Seal

Anyone had experience with the neoprene rear main seals available for the red six, blue six, and the starfire four? Are they a better option than using the standard rope seals?

Cheers, Mick.
