HX cuts out on LH corners

Anyone come across this one before?
Helping out a pensioner with her HX Kingswood Deluxe today. It cuts out on LH corners, though I can get it to do it just swerving left and right while driving. By connecting up the voltmeter with some long leads I found that the coil voltage is dropping out when the problem happens.
I ran a wire from the battery to the coil+ and hey presto no problem!
I suspect that tomorrow's job will be to find a loose wire under the dash somewhere. Does the ign switch give this type of problem?

Clutch woes part 2

Hi Guys,

I have had heaps of issues with my clutch setup.
I have replaced the carrier plus thrust bearing with the correct items, I have replaced the clutch cable as well as adjusting the fork and have a v8 pedal. I also put in a new spigot bush.
I cannot select gears??? clearly the clutch is not engaging but I am at a loss now.
I have pulled everything apart, and even used spacers to get the pedal to sit higher so it doesn't bottom out. It still will not select gears.

Off topic question ?

Where have all the chev's gone ? I've been looking for one to buy for a while now. But I can't find one at a decent price. There are plenty of Corvette's about left or right hand drive. But what's happened to the Holden built chev's ? Will also look at Aussie Pontiac's.

WHEEL COLOURS

When did Holden stop colour coded wheels? I've seen a few HT's in that maroon with matching wheels. I have an Aquamarine HQ (74) and I have painted the rims in Holden wheel silver, from factory I think they were black??? I'm in need of a change, and thought I might paint them Aquamarine with dress rims and hubcaps back on... I think it will look good with my white walls.

Cheers

Cleaning brake parts...

What's the best way to clean/soak brake parts (wheel cyl)? I'd like to inspect it for wear etc.
The manual says use clean alcohol, not petrol or kero or the like.. I wont use home-brew, unless I can strain it and put it back in the bottle...
Would metho be OK..?
