Hey Jim
Geoff Klimsch or geoff_k on here has dabbled with electric power steering
Not sure which column he used though

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

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?

Rob, you're very generous with your time and knowledge as I can attest, having been on the receiving end on the way to Perth

With an offer like that you may receive a call or 2 before folks depart!

Helen

These images may help

This image is of the seat that was in my FC Panelvan ambulance, ignore that it has been cut in half but the pattern is correct for FC, panelvan, ute, and standard sedan and wagon

Only difference being at the back of the seat, FE ute had a flap of matching vinyl that was attached from the seat to under the back window and acted as a sort of loose parcel shelf behind the seat

panelvan had a piece of ply wood, both ute and panelvan were ashtray delete
 


FE ute seat is different to FC seat as per this pick

Here are some of the different types of Stack badges I have found over the years that Stacks were operating

Like a lot of older Holden stuff these and I suspect other badges are being reproduced and some are hard to pick


37  Galleries / Project Cars - FEs and FCs Under Construction / Re: FC wagon barn find. on: February 14, 2018, 03:15:30 PM
Our Standard Wagon was supplied by Stack
attached images of the folder that came with it

There is a ring that covers the rubber but it does not divert the overflow

It's more of a good look accessory than a functional item
I believe there may have been a copy version
And there may also have been a different profile

There are at least 2 tabs punched from the subframe tie member which bend over the line to hold it in place
