Forgive me for pointing this out, Clay, but driveline vibration is, umm, standard equipment in early Holdens . . .

Thanks Richard. I did consider driving my FB up as it is a nice drive from Adelaide, but Iíve got a driveline vibration I need to sort out before I do any more trips.

I assume you are still going. Have a great weekend all!!

Seems no takers, so I've cancelled. If you're interested, get in touch, I'll give you the owner's email.

Hi everyone,

I have a booking I'm about to cancel for this really nice cottage: https://www.booking.com/hotel/au/marlee-cottage.en-gb.html

Before I do, I just thought I'd mention it here in case anyone might be interested in it. It's walking distance from the location of the dinners, and would suit a family of four or two couples.

Let me know quick if you would be interested. My booking is not through booking.com, it's direct with the owner.

PM me.

Hi everyone, the following went out via email to all entrants today - check your junk folder if you did not receive it.


After such a long wait, the Nationals are almost here! We are only a few weeks away from the event, and we are so looking forward to hosting you in Broken Hill. Our shipments of merchandise are arriving, the programme is getting printed, the trophies have been made. It's happening, people.

Some things you should be aware of to help you make your plans:

1. Registration

Registration and collection of goodie bags and other material will occur at the Broken Hill Civic Centre, from 12.00pm to 3.30pm on Friday April 7. The Civic Centre is also the location where all of our official dinners will be held, so you'll get to know it well. It is located at 31 Chloride Street, in the centre of town.

2. Camp Chairs

The site of the show 'n' shine has some public seating, but not huge amounts. The same goes for the destination point for the cruise on Sunday. So if you can fit some camp or fold-up chairs in the car, you'd be well advised to bring them.

3. Saturday Night Fancy Dress

There isn't any. You are most welcome to frock up and get your Priscilla, Queen of the Desert on, or perhaps your post-apocalyptic Mad Max leathers, but it's not obligatory.

4. Silverton and the Mad Max Museum

We originally planned to have going to the Mad Max Museum an optional event on Monday, and that is what was promoted in the Nats Brochure and Itinerary. Unfortunately, the Museum no longer opens on Monday, so plans have had to change. The proprietors have confirmed they will be open every other day of the long weekend, so if you are keen to visit the Museum and the famous Silverton Hotel, our advice is to go there on Thursday before the Nats properly commences, or otherwise get out there when they open at 10.00am on Good Friday, check out the attractions, and get back to Broken Hill before 3.30pm to complete your registration. If you are staying on Monday you will find there are lots of other attractions in Broken Hill itself to visit, such as the Royal Flying Doctor Service Outback Experience, or the Pro Hart Gallery and Museum, amongst others.

If you have any questions, please reply to this email and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

See you in the Outback.. in a couple of weeks!!

Holden Together,

Richard Thomas
19th FE-FC Holden Nationals, Broken Hill

Brett's three-row radiator core did the trick.  Did it what.

It was between 35 and 38 here this afternoon.  I took the car for an overheating test run up Mona Vale Rd to Terrey Hills.  I think I got hotter than the engine.  At 55+ mph, the coolant temp was about ambient + 40 degrees.  And the temperature drop from top tank to bottom tank was about six to eight degrees (compared with 12 - 15 for the old radiator).  The coolant temp never got above 80 degrees, even in heavy traffic.

And I found an EK/EJ fan which didn't whistle at 60 mph, so that's a bonus too.

Thanks Art for your e-mail.

Still looking for a Lucas headlight for a FE, the one with the parker in the headlight.
