I'm about ready to attack the sump on my Hd Wagon again after a break, absence make the heart grow fonder. I got some advice ealier but forgot to ask if any sealant should be used on the cork sump gasket or on the two sump end gaskets. I've two different holden manuals but they don't give much/any advice on this.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Another funny thing happened to me today.
Was thinking that the locks on the doors of the old HK were stuffed and needed replacement or at least the barrels changed.
After stuffing around for a while, the light went on and I realised that the panel beater chaps had put the locks back in upside down... Turning the key around and bingo... All was working.
I then changed the locks to be the right way up and... Well... No locksmith required.... You little beauty!!!! All fixed...
check through the pics for the EH.
I found them mate, was going through the shed and look what turned up!!! Didn't think I'd chucked them out.

Hi all the boot on the HT sedan has started rattling when driving so have been looking at it this morning. It also is not catching very well. I tried moving the catch plate to slightly different positions, but it made no difference, and it only seemed to have one spot where it would actually catch, so that ended up where I started. I am wondering if the problem might be the lock catch? It is supposed to be springy? It only locks when pushed right up into the unit and doesn't have any spring back in it.
Thanks to anyone who has fiddled around with this before and has advice.
Sometimes you can get lucky at Shannons Auctions and if there is little interest on the day, a cheap car can be bought.
Just my two cents worth...
Another difference between 6 cyl two door S (82311) SL (82611) and a genuine GTR/XU1 (82911) is the spare tyre mounting arrangement in the boot. Most "S" and "SL" models should have two brackets on the boot floor next to the wheel well as in the pic above.
Genuine GTR and XU1 should only have one bracket (the smaller bracket closest to the rear of the car). These cars had the spare lying almost flat on the floor next to the fuel tank. The exception to this rule is if an "S" or "SL" was optioned with rally wheels and 70 profile tyres from the factory, which would have then been fitted with the GTR arrangement.
Hi all :)
I am looking at a ej sedan with a red 186 and a aussie 4 speed I was wondering if anyone would know if that needs to be engineered??

I was looking for where the kickback rod attaches to the powerglide transmission lever yesterday and found that the entire lever is missing! Looks like it's broken off. This picture shows where the lever should be, however there is only a short stub. The metal looks quite ratty and there is also a oil leak at this point.
How hard is it going to be to replace this lever part? Does it Apache to this metal stub or do I have to open the transmission to replace the entire part?
Is this something for qualified mechanic to do. Not sure if I want to tackle something this big!
Any advise on this would be appreciated.
The car is currently not able to be driven as it's not registered. IT does drive in first, but I don't know what it does at higher speeds.
Does anyone have a photo or an idea of how to get the boot light wire from the globe to the back seat area. Once the wire is in there I can run it along the sill right up to the fuse box.
I've tried many ways but there appears to be no way to do this without bringing the wire into the boot compartment which looks tacky!
I understand that it can be wired to the tail light, however, I'd like to wire it to the fuse box if I can find a way of taking the wire through without it looking crappy.
