I reckon you use a readily available flat star washer which gets pressed in to shape on torque up.

Just make sure you heat the washers before you torque them up😏

I'm looking at your signature block, and am thinking your car should be red over white, with a black flash on one side and a myrtle one on the other Cheesy

Interesting...., but after last night's effort, perhaps I should ditch the black😥

As a fellow 'Granite Grey' over 'Castle Grey' FE sedan owner, my vote is for a 'Granite Grey' flash👍
4  Technical Board / General Technical / Engine oil overfill question on: March 16, 2018, 08:35:04 PM
Hi,
Is (approximately) 300ml of engine oil overfill, too much to leave in my car’s grey motor?
Or is it not really a problem?
Thanks.

Makes sense to me. Think I'll wait overnight for all the kero to dry out completely first. Then re-oil both with the SAE 90.
(Might have to use an eye dropper for the oil fill cap).
Thanks, as ever, for your help Ken.
6  Technical Board / General Technical / Re: Oil bath air cleaner re-fill capacity, spec. on: March 11, 2018, 03:57:13 PM
Can anyone let me know if you have to re-oil the metal gauze filter elements (in both the carby mounted oil bath air cleaner top cover and the engine rocker cover mounted oil fill cap air filters) after cleaning them with kero?
I assume so.
If so, how much is enough?
Cheers

Thanks Ken, just as I suspected, but thought it was worth asking the question anyway.
8  Technical Board / Restoration Help / My Nasco 4 1/8" diam. rear view mirror needs re-glazing on: March 09, 2018, 01:06:54 PM
Hi,
Is new mirror glass for these available 'off the shelf' or do I need to get some cut to size?
9  Technical Board / Restoration Help / Re: Radiators on: March 03, 2018, 03:00:50 PM
Hi,
Need to get a pressure test done on my spare radiator.
Can anyone recommend a good workshop in the inner or south eastern suburbs of Melbourne, who would be able to do the job, and a ‘leak repair’, should it be found to be necessary?
Thanks,

Hi,
Need the oil re-fill capacity for the Grey motor's oil bath air cleaner?
Can I use Mobilube HD 80W-90 Trans/Diff oil?
Or would Penrite HPR 50 Engine Oil - 40W-70, be better?
Cheers
The oil bath air cleaner's capacity is about 525-530mls
11  Technical Board / General Technical / Re: Oil bath air cleaner re-fill capacity, spec. on: February 20, 2018, 11:50:38 AM
Many thanks again Harv.

12  Technical Board / General Technical / Re: Oil bath air cleaner re-fill capacity, spec. on: February 19, 2018, 04:15:31 PM
Many thanks for that information Harv.
So I will use the Penrite Transoil 90 SAE90 gear oil in the oil bath cleaner and in the gearbox.
What is best for the rear axle, Penrite Mild EP? Undecided

This will be the pastel green that came out, a faithful reproduction of the swirly pattern.
Not as popular as the off-white it would seem, but I struggled to sell that until a guy snaffled the last 6 metres for his Chev, the light blue I bought in sold quite quickly.

Hi stinky,
Is this what the Light green vinyl will look like?

Well edited RET!

Grey and light green, you can thank Ken for its success.
Regards
John

Thanks John (and Ken!). You have made our day, our FE van was originally 'Oceanmist Green' and this model will give us a, surprisingly accurate, glimpse into the future.
[Our car remains for now though, a rather uninspiring blend of 'Burgundy' and (sub-floor) rust.]
Cheers,
Chris & Yvona

Hmmm, thats an interesting wagon, at first I thought it was a FC special wagon with a stripe kit, but its not. Then I thought its a standard wagon with a stripe kit, but its not.  Its an FE special wagon with what maybe a "Dart Look" flash kit the same as Chris Boudlev's car.
It appears to be grey and white with a maroon flash.
Would have been a pretty car in its day.

Ken

I think you are spot on (as usual) Ken.
Here's mine showing the 'full Dart' Cheesy

How anaemic does that silver HR look compared to the blue HD. Whoever went with the 'blandest, commonest colour to grace the current range of (seen one, seen 'em all) world cars' needs their head read.
(my humble opinion anyway  Roll Eyes)

Hi Tony,
The Business model (217) was specced for 'heavy duty'. For example, they had a better electrical system (higher rated Battery) and an extra leaf in the rear leaf springs (5 as opposed to 4). The rocker switch on the B-pillar was on all 217's (not specific to Taxis) and was to turn the interior dome light on, without opening the front doors.
