Hi, can any EJ owners tell me if all 3 idiot lights ( gen, oil, temp ) turn on when you turn on an EJ ignition (without engine running). I've had mine off the road for a while and noticed that the temp light isn't working when ignition is on, but i've tested the temp circuit by earthing the wire at the sender and the temp bulb works fine. Also, is it the same for EH??
Does anyone know how to adjust the tension on a front vent window? It's the only aircon I have in my EH and as it is now quite slack it won't stay open to direct air onto me. Thanks in advance.
need some help here. I'm in the process off fitting a stock HT rear seat from a wagon into a Panelvan. I could do with a few photos or measurements of how the seat fits into a wagon from factory. Ie: how the locking latch works. Is this welded or bolted to the wheel arch?
If the locking brackets are bolted, does anyone have a pair available for sale?
Hi guys, I am needing to replace my indicator stalk, and could use some help.
I've used some wd40 on the steering wheel, and with a puller, it still won't budge.
I am going to try giving it some taps with a hammer, but some advise would be appreciated.
im wondering something...
people have mentioned that you can use torana springs to lower a kingswood....when i had an lx torana i was told to use commodore springs to lower it.
So, could I use commodore springs in the rear of my hz wagon to lower it?
I picked up a hz one tonner cab on the weekend that is in Awesome condition.
My first question is whats the best way to treat the floor on the inside of the cab?
The inside of the cab only has a few minor spots of surface rust. Apart from the surface rust the rest of the floor has a light blue colour finish original from the factory,it almost looks like new clean metal.
I was going to sand the rust back and paint it with etch primer but the local paint shop told me to put sound deadiner straight over the whole floor and not to use ecth.
With the floor in such good condition should i leave it and just fix the surface rust areas. What paint should i use.
Hi, just dabbling with my first Grey Motor that I'm looking at building for a replica of my dads first car an FE.

Also can anyone I'd the rocker cover on it? Looks like it way have been ground off.
Having dramas with my oil pressure gauge in wb Holden statesman with quad gauge has temp fuel volts and oil pressure oil pressure flicks right over once ignition is on. Have disconnect wire off sender unit and followed wire back to behind gauge disconnected and still flicks right over. Any ideas ? Would love a diagram of wiring to gauges

hi all im in newcastle area and am looking for a full set of roof wires that go thru the hoodlining for a fj sedan
Im after a HQ SS/GTS Monaro 4 door sedan complete wiring loom, in reasonable condition as a minimum.
Spitting chips, I replaced every part possible on my front end except the springs anyhow I sat the car down and it was 2 inches lower, so undo everything and the springs had been cut very neatly I didn't notice when installing them, moral of storey, don't use that old set you had in the shed, just buy new ones. All sorted.
Here are a few photos from T and I replacing there generic front end components on my HQ.
Key learning points were:
- The best way to negate a hangover is by not dancing whilst drinking
- Brake pads coming off drum brake shoes is best discovered in the car port
- Some neighbours are interested in old cars, most are not
- A 32 year old is better suited to physical labour when pressing bushes out by hand
Alas we are over half way there, didn't actually run into any problems at all outside of the usual fiddly bits and had a good laugh.
A huge thanks to T
I have a HEI out of a VK commodore (Carb) in the old girl. We were out on a trip Thursday and it started playing up. When we got home, I removed the dizzy and stripped it down. It appears that no oil was going up the shaft, because is was dry as. I cleaned everything up (oiled the Shaft with engine oil)put it back in timed everything back up and so far appears fine. But I'm just worried it might occur again. I need my car on the road as she is our daily driver. I looked on the web for a replacement, but they appear to be upwards of $250.00. So I was wondering ifn you can buy parts for em still. In my case a new shaft possibly. Any ideas plse tks. Regards Texas
