1  Technical Board / Modification Help / Re: Fan Shrouds on: October 10, 2018, 04:55:40 PM
The 202 is standard bore, the radiator is from an LC/LJ Torana but the core was upgraded from standard, twin row fine core?.
2  Technical Board / Modification Help / Fan Shrouds on: October 10, 2018, 01:17:59 PM
My 202 powered FE Sedan runs normal temperature in most driving situations, but when stuck in slow traffic or forced to sit idling for a while the temp creeps up past 180. I have tried a thermo fan in front of the radiator to push air through but this did little.

Have people fitted fan shrouds to their Red 6 powered cars?
Does it improve cooling?
How did you do it/what did you use?
3  General / General Board / Light Green Hood Lining on: October 09, 2018, 07:16:35 PM
I have a customer who has pre-ordered 6 metres of the Green Hood Lining from the bulk order I have put in (and am still waiting for).

If anyone is interested in taking over this order in part or in full, could you please get in touch.
3 metres will do a Sedan Hood lining and visors.
4  General / General Board / Under dash parcel tray on: August 27, 2018, 09:49:45 PM
Is there any information on dimensions or patterns available to DIY the under dash parcel tray.
I'd like one for my FE Sedan and I am not fussed on originality, if it worked out it would also be something I could offer as part of my motor trimming business.
5  Technical Board / General Technical / What year? on: August 19, 2018, 05:09:44 PM
There is supposed to be a rough way to calculate the year of manufacture by the body number.

Here's mine can anyone help?

  Vehicle is an FC Panel Van, the 6,267th manufactured in Adelaide, SA.

Thanks for advice guys.
12  Technical Board / General Technical / Bench testing steering columns on: January 27, 2018, 05:52:34 PM
I bought a HR Column to day to get rebuilt to replace the worn one in my FE.
Aside from looking daggy, the adjustment screw appears to be most if not all the way out and it feels "tight" on turning it. I would like to confirm properly if there is a way before fitting it.
13  General / General Board / Re: Wagon material on: October 05, 2017, 12:15:31 PM
10mm x 10mm sounds right, the hessian backing was also a feature.
14  Technical Board / Modification Help / Re: Electrical Gremlin on: September 03, 2017, 01:05:36 PM
Thanks Guys, no LEDs, I think Errol62 might be close though. I did have to disconnect the horn because it would go off randomly when turning corners.
Looks like a rebuild and rewire of the column is in order
15  Technical Board / Modification Help / Electrical Gremlin on: September 02, 2017, 12:17:53 PM
Weird intermittent issue.
I have an aftermarket wiring loom, one from the USA (one with the writing on the wires).
Everything works, the problem is with the indicators.
Short trips they are fine, on longer trips or intermittent driving throughout the day after a couple of hours they will stop flashing and just stay on, then later in the trip or the following day they work normally.
I have tried 3 or 4 different flasher cans and all do the same.
The flasher cans do not get hot, I have changed flasher cans when it happens to no effect.

Prefer a Speco brand but not fussed if an Impala shows up, my son wants one for his HR to built-up 70s/80s style with all old school stuff.

Thanks Errol62
19  Technical Board / Modification Help / The "best" way to adjust a HR steering box. on: May 25, 2017, 08:43:11 PM
I know there are a couple of methods aside from the factory method, but what is the best way to adjust to get the best steering response without destroying the box?
One video (generic box) says to undo the locknut, tighten screw until it just stops, lock off and drive.
Another video says to undo the lock nut and tighten the screw in 1/4 turn increments, test drive, adjust again until optimal.
I haven't read the factory way yet as I don't have a HR manual, but I want to know the best method that is going to give me some confidence in my steering.
