HX GTS Dash Wiring

Hi all , I have just bought a 1977 HX Ute with a GTS Dash fitted. With the headlight switch pulled on the headlights (high & low beam) work correctly. BUT the dash lights DO NOT work. eveything else in the dash works as it should. Also with either door open the interia light does NOT work. BUT if I were to touch the fuse box anywhere including the outside sides of it, all the dash lights & interia light suddenly work as they should. Could this be a bad earth if so WHERE ??? Cheers- Trent.

Sheds Are AWL

Hi Rusty,

The sheds are Absent Without Leave again (notice I've used the Australian terminology rather than the US AWOL).

Just bought another car, better then Rhys's HQ :P

Image: 

Went to the tip to get rid of a heap of rubbish in my clean out this shed mood and came home with this lol. The bloke drove me home in it, runs fine, got the battery, 3 brand new tyres, + spares. Runs like a dream uses no oil or water but has a blown head gasket between the two chambers or something. Ill play around with it then its off to farm duties. Oh and its a Daihatsu Charade 1980 model.
The only reason i bought is that my girlfriend has a new daewoo and always tells me i should get one like hers caus their better then my VK. So i did it :)
Guess How much i paid?

Aircon and rpm

Does a car air conditioner's capacity to cool vary with engine speed? For example, if I jump into a stinking hot car and start it up but cannot drive off straight away, if I rev up the engine to say 2-3000 rpm will this help cool things down faster?

alternative front buckets seats for a HQ wagon

Hi all

My seats in the Kingy are finally showing sighs of ageing. I guess after 35 odd years the seats have done very well.

Does anyone know of a trimmer in Sydney that could bring them back to life or alternatively what does one need to do to be able to fit after market seats in to an older car?

Any suggestions?

thanks all

HQ GTS Monaro Chev V's Holden?

Hi, I was just wondering what you's thought about engine wise for a HQ.
I have a HQ gts 4 door monaro but doesn't have matching motor, it has a black VK brock block and car originaly came with a L31 and m21 from fac.
The question is do you think it's more original sticking with a holden V8 or worth more if i put a 350 in it? either way neither motor will be the original and i have a 350 and extractor's laying around and also a muncie. it has a saginaw in it at moment with fully worked 308/355 but was going to put that motor in something else and put another holden stroker in it.
Was also in shed minutes ago playing with another HQ which i thought had fake GTS guards and just pulled them of to find they are real. i call that a good day.
Wes.

Impco experts.

G'day everyone, hope your all enjoying your weekend. Very soon I'll be fitting this Impco model L to my tonner & want to know if I can mount it like this. Does the top have to be at the top (I know that sounds stupid but I have to ask). If I were to mount it on its side like this I think it would be a lot neater but I can do it the proper way up if need be. Would like to know what you all think.

Cheers Kale.

uni joint celica yoke - holden 6 tail shaft?

Hi,

Was just wondering if there was a uni joint available to suit a celica yoke - holden 6 tail shaft. As the celica yoke takes 26mm uni's and the holden tail shaft takes 25mm.

I know you can get a modified yoke from dellow or crs to suit but would like to avoid this if possible.

Thanks
