From memory I think later model holden  exhaust manifold studs fit although the end that goes into the manifold is a thread or 2 short of the of the depth required  but still ok.

Rob,

This may not be of help but the hyda-matic on a grey have a small breather can for the tranny on a pipe attached to the box that sits in that area but is not connected to the vacuum

On set of a place to call home




6  General / General Board / Re: Hub caps on: March 07, 2019, 10:26:54 PM
I reckon they look ok, the H sticks out a bit & can suffer from gutter rash

I have seen them used on the rear quarter of FB as part of aftermarket accessory flash kits

Hi Weddo

I've fitted 2 of the new ones over the last few years and had no probs

I also had an earlier type that a bloke gave  Huh me at a swap meet, and it was like a Selvitex suit, touched every where and fitted nowhere

The new ones also come with the itty bitty screws as well

I believe the dash colour is called Cinder Grey but don't have the code
9  Technical Board / Restoration Help / Re: 1/4 vent window handle on: January 17, 2019, 12:21:03 PM
I believe these were available as a seperate part
They are riveted or staked to the frame

As has been mentioned though, you would need to careful if attemting to replace it with the glass in place

It's not uncommon to see the FC mascot on an  FE

My theory is that a mascot was purchased later on, perhaps as a gift, or added by a car yard at re sale in the absence of a correct more gorgeous FE unit : )

This is the tail pipe end on our FE panel van



I think you will find that unless you have an original pipe you would have to cut it

Anyone have a genuine nos tailpipe with the cut off they want to sell

I believe the hole was to allow it to be hooked onto the choke behind the knob Gary

Hey Jim
Geoff Klimsch or geoff_k on here has dabbled with electric power steering
Not sure which column he used though
15  Technical Board / General Technical / Re: Need advice on tyres on: May 15, 2018, 08:44:34 PM
Fraze
I am running 185 80's on 3 of my cars with no probs, it might be that you are running 185 70's? which are not as close to the rolling diameter as the original tyres

Also, have you checked your drag link? these are fairly straight forward to put a new kit through   

Like Ken I reversed my radials as well so that the whitewall was on the inside, cleaned the blue wax off the whitewalls and painted over the ribbon whitwall with tyre black, that way you have a close to original look with the benefit of radials

i do have the other cars with cross ply's but its a bit of a lottery, as 2 of them have a tendancy to run square, but ok after a mile or 2

I'll give them a call, my belts have the flat HT buckles and are pretty mangy so here's hoping

Soup
If using the new seat sides with a camping seat the lower section will usually need to be modified (cut) in order to allow the seat to do it's  thing
Front seat looks pretty good as is just nedds re padding
Welcome aboard

Good work Rob

I wonder how many have gone in the bin over the years I have had to go over to the dark side for 2 of our cars and get the red motor type replacement



But recently found 2 reconditioned original units
from Brooklands parts in Melbourne probably closed down now





If you're going to redo some I would be interested in at least 1
What would the cost be?

Gary
