trimatic slightly whining

Hey guys,

I've got a stock Gem daily driver which has started to make this squeel/whine noise at about 60km/h when just on the throttle.if i accelerate past this the squeel seems to go away.

i've thrown it neutral to see if its the diff or rear wheel bearing (fronts are new) and it definately stops when i put it in nuetral.

so im thinking something in the trimatic. its got a seperate cooler and shifts really nice and smooth and all the fluids are good. Any ideas as I don't know a lot about auto's.

Anyone wrecking a VNish Commodore??

G'day everyone
I am doing a wiper upgrade on the ute, and have a VN commodore wiper motor in place, I just am after the 5 pin plug from the loom and about 300mm of the wire from it so I can hook it up to my new switch. Prefereably Brissy area so I can pick it up. Pretty sure most Commodores have the same or close enough wiper motor / wiring plug.

Cheers, Doug.

colour matching paint??????

Hay all, got some questions about colour matching.

I have a few bits in the paint work that aren't quite right and i don't reeeeally have have money to repaint the whole thing. IN a hole the pain isn't to bad other than a bit of rust in the guards and a bit in the drivers door. The paint looks alot like Linna Mint but its not. IM worried that if i get some "matched" paint it wont be right and it will look like crap.

Ebay parts

My wife gave me the "sooooooo what are we doing with the car parts in the shed???" talk. Should I put some on ebay or just put her on ebay? Those parts are 25yrs of collecting and are a broad range of old pre war ford some old tractor stuff and heaps of Holden gear, id say replacement is 25k worth if I went out and tried to buy them all again. So I just laughed and said noooooooooooooooooooooo way you get to put lamo artie pictures etc inside and I get a shed with doors and panels haha

Gday people

I have just replaced the loom in the EJ. I have gone by the book in terms of hooking up the wiring.
The loom I just put in was a good one I pulled out of another EJ.
The problem I am having is when i put the positive terminal on the bty coil in the reg (yellow arrow) switchers on and I get a spark from the bty. Why would this happen?

The last loom I had was melted in a few different places and it was like this when I got the car.

Off Topic - Forklift

Hey Guys,

Is there anybody on here that knows about forklifts?

I have recently purchased a Crown CG30e Forklift. It is running on straight gas, with an Impco 100 converter.

The hydraulic side of it seems to work well, but when driving, it feels like it is really struggling. I think it may be a combination of poorly adjusted brakes, and engine needing a tune. If you put it in gear whilst idling, it does not move. If you are driving along and put it into neutral and coast to a stop, it will stop and roll back a bit, similar to if you were to do it to a car with handbrake on. The hand brake is off, but definitely works when you put it on.

Are the brakes and handbrake hard to adjust on these forklifts?

Any other suggestions?

Ht petrol tank filler.

Hi I installed a petrol tank I'n my Ht yesterday. But then realized the tank didn't have extra outlet next to the filler. It connects at the top and next to the filler on the tank. It's running the breather on the opposite side. Does it matter if I don't run it? Thanks
