Re: GMH Body Id Plate, Chassis & engine No ..... Please post.

Steve's mia but I believe they have been keeping the list up to date. Can't remember who took it over from him. A few on here have been updating it. So fear not it's not lost. Just following on from Timbo Ambo question about the list. Steve had the idea to collect tags and in 2008 I started going t...

Re: EK Wagon project - Total rebuild

Thanks Guys. I thought I had a lot of update photos but they are probably still in the old laptop that died. :( Hey Rosco, I haven't been on the forum for a while, just seems like too many other things in life take priority, but I'm working on that. Your concerns were founded, the nut had unwound of...

Re: EK Wagon project - Total rebuild

I still have lots of stuff to finish, just need the time. Reverse lights, extra side moldings, replacement windscreen, tailgate seal, etc. Did some maintenance recently. Stopped the brake squeal in reverse and fixed my steering wander. It appears that at some stage the split pin was removed from the...

Re: EK Wagon project - Total rebuild

Has been a while since i posted on the forum, but the wagon continues to be a little work horse, but can't help being a show pony.
Did a wedding for one of my sons, they were very happy. Still waiting for the photographers pics to arrive.

Best Gearbox oil ?

Wonder what people find to be the best gearbox oil, for an original 3 speed EK manual gearbox.

Re: EK Wagon project - Total rebuild

Have also now finished installing the strips in the rear cargo area. Took a while to get the bar lengths right and counter sink the holes.

Re: Our pix

Looks like you have caught the HB bug. :D :D
And winter is almost coming to an end, not that we really noticed this year.

Was great to catch up with you Rosco.
And love some of your photos.
The one with the Yamba sign is my favorite.

Hope you have a safe journey back home. :D
