weber accellerater cable set up

I have a weber 34 adm and adapter plate to suit my manifold.

all seems to be a pretty straightforward conversion, no nonsense carb i know where everthing has to go etc.

KWIK KWESTIONS: how do I set up a simple throttle cable and return spring?

there seenms to a bit of info on the carb and a few photos on the converson and all..

throttle cable bracket bolts onto where? return spring clips onto where? how do I bolt the cable to the throttle linkage on the carby?

NOTE: on the 34 ADM the throttle linkage must be pulled upward to accellerate which means the return spring must pull the opposite direction (downward). there doesnt appear to be anywhere to bolt such hardware without a crude looking bracket with heaps of bends and possisble weaknesses.

Cook's new daily

Hey guys,

Sorry not old holden, but you all seem pretty cluey and some of ya's must have late model daily drivers.

Anyway the girlfriend is looking at spending around $11k on a new daily (small, reliable, economic) as her Magna bit the dust. She likes the look of the newish astra's/barina's but I'm pretty sure thay're European hunks of s***. I was thinking something like an '06 onwards Corolla as I hear some good things about them.

She also seems to think that buying from a dealer is better than private as you get some sort of warranty, I just think they're dodgy and most people I know who have bought second hand from a dealer may aswell have bought private.

4L60E auto troubles

Hi all,
Still putting LS1 and 4L60E into HJ wagon. Just about road going time and I have no drive out of gearbox. I'm fairly sure its the pump in the gearbox as fluid level doesn't lower when engine is running. Anybody else have an idea? gearbox has been sitting for a while, can the pressure relief jam open like other pumps or is it just rooted? Any info would be great.

Light em up

Hey

Got a question about 7" round headlights

Been looking through the sheds and found a few people using the reputable brand headlights like Hella and Narva.

My question is, how do these compare (As in brightness and light spread) to the rather cool looking DEPO lights like I have fitted?

Regards

VK EFI EGR Pipes and things Hey T can you advise

G'day T or or anybody who might know. Puting together a VK EFI Kit for my ute. Do you know who might sell replacement EGR pipes (between exhaust manifold and EFI Manifold), and also the Thermal vacuum switches on the head are broken off, any idea's on where to try for these? And tell me did you use the standard 6 cyl 2 core radiator or should I go V8 style.
Cheers

Can rubber engine mounts go hard after many years?

Trying to make the 5L VP all quiet and shooshy inside like a limo. At around the 1500 rpm mark there is a drony, moany kind of sound (pretty sure not exhaust) that might actually be coming from the p/s pump though when you listen to it with the bonnet up it is not really that noisy. You can hear it in the car like it is coming through the metalwork. It is not loud or anything, just you can hear it. What I am wondering is, seeing the rubber engine mounts are nearly 20 years old, can they gradually go hard and inflexible and so transmit more vibrations and noise to the car structure?

VH / VK M76 5 speed info help please!!

Hi Guys,

ok - so can someone confirm/deny the following:

* The 5 speed in a VH is different to the 5 speed in a VK, the VK being heaps stronger as the VH is a sigma 5 speed box. The main identifier between the two is that the VK has the circular hole ontop of the bellhousing for the crank angle detector

* the VK 5 speed M76 has the transmission mount the same as a 3 speed all synchro and has it located the same distance back from the bellhousing/engine joint

* The VK 5 speed uses the standard holden manual brass bush to support the front of the input shaft (i 90% know this one is the case)

missing bit's and pieces for my 1971 HQ Kingswood sedan

Bought My HQ, young guy had started pulling things off and not put back on but most things are there.

Would anyone know where I could have a chance at finding an original radio for my HQ?

Also would anyone have any exact idea on what the oringinal bench seats look like for this car? I have two buck seats (DARK BROWN) and a creamish-y bench seat in the rear. would love to replace them with the originals.

Live Gold Coast.

Mad Max 4 - Two Ford concept coupe pictures

Just found a story that Ford Australia have released 2 coupe concept cars based on the Mad Max story...see the link

http://news.drive.co...

The comments are worth reading too. Some use humour, some discuss the economics of car production, some actually, amazingly, discuss Mad Max.

Tacho for Clock Swap?

Hi Folks,

I have an HZ Statey dash in the soon-to-be-known-as Car formerly known as 'Tonnacrap'. It has the clock in the spot where the GTS dashes have the Tacho. I am assuming I can just remove the clock and replace it with a factory Tach and wire it in? Is this right? That leads me to my next question, anyone have a tach for sale, or anyone know where I can get one?

Cheers,

Dom
