    Holden 2a build "OPAL"

    Time to start a build thread again, two vehicles will be used to build a Marine Blue ute (I'm a big fan of Shaun the sheep)

    Power will be Holden Red or Blue 202 motor I have both, Salisbury rear end and possibly series 3 syncro gearbox. Chassis is a military which I now have rust free.

    IMG_3296.jpg IMG_3699.jpg both vehicles have been completely stripped

    img472.jpg This is the look of finished vehicle all going well

    Will start posting build pictures tomorrow

    Cheers Paul

    2 x Series 2a 109 Holden 202 hardtop +Series 3 2.25 109 to be morphed into two Series2a 109 goers , if I can find them under all the rust

    Nice. Looks like you have a few threads/builds all running at once. Do you have time to sleep?

    its all about my ever patient wife wanting the backyard to look like a backyard rather than a wrecking yard

    Started this morning sorting bolts for rear stub axles need enough for two vehicles

    IMG_4575.jpg IMG_4581.jpg IMG_4582.jpg IMG_4584.jpg IMG_4592.jpg

    then it occurred to me I'll also need to make sure I have serviceable brake hardware

    IMG_4591.jpg IMG_4594.jpg all good have enough recycled parts

    got the Salisbury sealed up with new gasket and front oil seal, just need to torque drive flange nut when in chassis

    While waiting for oil seals for front axle casings thought I'd have a go at the steering relays

    IMG_4619.jpg IMG_4621.jpg Will give my spring compressor a whirl tomorrow and attempt to put it all together

    I hope I can find some jubilee clips big enough, going to try the "Hillbilly" cable tie method

    Any shop that sells truck intake and exhaust stuff will have large diameter worm drive clips.

    Thanks for the heads up, where I live is fairly remote so trying to buy anything car related usually means a two hour trip to Bairnsdale. Might end up robbing off, a radiator hose somewhere

    Can not see by your photo if yours has the hole, if the shaft has a hole through the straight section between the tappers were the fiber bushes fit , ( not all shafts have the hole ) you can fit one of the bushes with a hose clip to hold it in place , then put the spring & washers on the shaft & put a screw driver through the hole & wind the spring down , it will compress enough to fit the second bush & clamp it with another hose clip. You can then wind the spring back to contact the two bushes & then remove the screw driver. You can then press the assembly into the housing . Make sure you have the top retaining plate on the shaftThe lower bush will slide through the hose clip ,Once the lower bush is in t he housing remove the hose clip from the shaft . Make sure you have the bottom retaining plate bolted in place & keep pressing the assembly down untill the top bush enters the housing remove the top hose clip & fit bolts in securing plate.
    That's the way I did my 80" idler box . I have a work shop manuel some were with the discription & drawings but think I loned it to some one & as usual it never came back.
