Sorry, gee bee, I did not see this message.
I did modify my ad and mentioned I was in fact the second owner.

My ad should have read one owner before me.

Gents,

My FC is now sold, and will be living a happy and luxurious life in Victoria.

I wish the new owner all the very best.

5  For Sale and Wanted / Parts Wanted / 1959 FC original braided fuel line wanted on: February 01, 2021, 09:02:27 PM
Gents.

I have recently found that my braided fuel line between the chassis and the fuel pump
has started to weep & bubble near the crimp where it connects to the fuel pump.

Would anyone have an original braided line for sale?

I would post a pic, however I canít on this forum for some reason.

Many thanks in advance.

Be careful not to make the bush/sleeve to thick to overload the seal crush.

I have had great success with speedy sleeves.
The just need to be done properly.
Probably one of the best inventions in the automotive world.
The next is the 2 piece clutch brake for Roadranger transmissions  Smiley

Please lube the new seal before installing.

Good luck.

Gents,
2 things in my experience of engine builds and seal replacements.

The speedy sleeve should have some kind of sealant (usually silicone) wiped inside before installing.
Of course the crank needs to be very clean before you install the sleeve.
This stops oil tracking between the speedy sleeve and crank.

The seal needs to have a good fill of GP grease in the void between the sealing lip and the front of the seal, and also a whipe on the speedy sleeve.
This lubricates the seal, and stops it from burning until oil can get to it to lubricate it.

Do we all remember soaking our leather seals in engine oil for 24 hours before installing?
This was for the same reason, lubrication, but with new nylon, neoprene plastics etc etc this of course canít be done.

So a good lube of the seal, and the sealing area it runs against is very important.

17  For Sale and Wanted / Cars For Sale / Ricís FC Special on: December 02, 2020, 09:02:21 AM
Gents,

With a heavy heart, due to my work situation, I am now selling my one owner 59 FC Special.

So you guys or girls can look it up, here are the details.
ID. FC-225-24248-S
Trim. 271-632 Venetian turquoise & black
Paint. 256-2048 Pinecrest green
Insert. 256-2038 Duchess green
Chassis number. FC-41896-S
Engine number. L563312

A few points of interest.

The original owner & his wife purchased this new in 1959 in Maitland NSW.
They drove it home to Newcastle where it was used as a daily driver until both of them passed away.
They never owned another car except this 59 Holden.

Original sales receipt
Original key
Original paint (except for a minor repair in the 60ís to the passenger side boot/guard area)
There is also slight damage to the passenger front door the chap did in the 70ís on list front gate.
Original floor and boot rubbers
Original interior
Original spare wheel & tyre (only used a few times according to the original owner)
Optional extras purchased when new, sun visor, weather shield, large clip on rear view mirror, and rear grab rail, as the owners mother was elderly and needed grab rails to get in and out of the car.
The hood lining is green, and so is the back of the rear view mirror (Iíve never seen a colour coded rear view mirror??)
They grey dash top & interior A pillars are like new.
The seats are in good condition with wear to the side tops of the front seat.
Both ashtrays are as new.
Interior is bright & vibrant.
This car lived its whole life under cover.

This car has never had a heater fitted or a radio.
It is still basically the same as when they purchased it 61 years ago.

A real time capsule.
Personal items still in glove box & boot
Car has never been out of rego since 59.
I drive it a couple of times a week.
Drives well, and is a real head turner.

I have done king pins, rear shackle rubbers, tune up, service, and coolant.
Brakes were re done a few years ago, and are working great.

As I canít post images here, please contact me for further details & many images on
Email: patrick.ryan@udtrucks.com.au
Phone: 0409194725

I am in the Penrith area, and the car is ready at a moments notice if anyone wants a drive.
