Hi All
After a 2 year forced lay off I am now well enough to get back into the rebuild ( as long as my doc doesn't find out  Grin ). Problem is memory is not as good as it used to be, I took 100s of pics etc as I was dismantling and repairing and put all parts in separate containers and identified by marking each container. The question is what will make my task ahead easier and if I come across a problem being small or large what is best to refer to, I have tried searching all the fine articles in the forum but it takes for ever to get to what I want.
Hope this all makes sense for eg I want to refit the front body ass, front end a diff as starters
Regards
Rick
I have the early model Holden spare parts manual 700 + pages but how do you use it ?

The spare parts manual is invaluable but not the easiest to read and understand. It takes a bit of practice.
Do you have the spare parts manual that just has FX to FC? It will be much easier if you have that one.

Thanks for all your comments and help, it would seem that the FE FC only spare parts CD would be a big step in the right direction. Has anyone got a link to Ebay for this CD.
That would be very much appreciated

The members forum name is FE 4 ME in Queensland, $15 and he will send a link to download the complete catalogue. I have it and found it very useful during my rebuild.
Not sure if he is still around as his last post was back in January. Best thing to do is send him a message and see if you get a reply.

Just a thought, if you donít do any good with the message, get in contact with Ethernet Queensland FE-FC car club, they may be able to help you.

So Rick, which parts book do you have? Is it the twenty year one.  I'm pretty sure that this is the one he scanned.

Yes it is the 20 year one 758 pages long which I have trouble using with so many models in it.
I saw one on Ebay with just FX - FC spare parts cat. which I thought is the one I need but it was a book not CD for $250 plus postage

Gday Rick,

I have a book called "The Complete Holden Workshop Manual" covering 48-215 up to HD, printed in 1966. Very detailed descriptions and photo's, it might be just what you need. 

It was my grandfathers, happy to send it up to you on loan - as long as I get it back at some stage.

Cheers, Graeme

Yes this is the book I have, I thought it was me that was not smart enough and missing something here. But it must have been used somewhere at the time of no computers to just punch in a item number etc. you need info on
Must be someone out there that knows?
