Wanted: 3 speed crashbox info

by Harv » Thu Nov 17, 2011 3:01 pm

Ladies and Gents,

The 350 Holley guid is pretty much done - give it a fortnight for some of the guys to read through and comment, then I'll post it (need to offload some excess carbs, manifolds, adaptors and parts not long thereafter for that matter... :oops: ).

Next on the agenda is a guide for grey motor crashboxes. I'll again focus on FB/EKs, but will extend back to the humpies and forward at least as far as EJ (depending on what info I can lay my hands on I may for a bit further forward, say HR). If anyone has any info, anecdotes, manuals, Accelerator magazine or other material relating to the crashbox, I'd love a scan/photocopy please (happy to pay postage). I already have access to the following:
a) Workshop manuals for FX, FJ, FE (with FC supplement), FB, EK and EJ/EH (anyone got a HD/HR manual they would like to sell or scan?)
b) Masterparts (20 years) catalogue,
c) The Scientific Publications Workshop Manual Series No. 67 Holden covering series 1948/?53 FJ, FE, FC, FB, EK, EJ, EH, HD, HR, and Workshop Manual Series No. 86 Holden covering series HK, HT, HG.
d) Max Ellery's Transmission repair manual Holden's 63-88 (EP-TRANH)

Any info very much appreciated.

Cheers,
Harv.

Looks like I have managed to get hold of the HR manual scan (and a full manual to purchase - bonus!), with HD manual scans underway.

One set of documents I have managed to get hold of is the FB and EK Service Bulletins - these are available here if anyone wants them:

(with thanks to Steve for originally posting them). The Service Bulletins will be handy, as they contain info on a lot of the fiddly changes that were made (and the reasons GMH made them).

Ask a silly question, but does anyone have the Service Bulletins for EH/EJ or HD/HR that they would be willing to photostat/scan for me please? Happy to pay postage as applicable.

Cheers,
Harv.
