HT Wagon side glass removal

Hi Guys
I need help in removing the rear side windows and chrome trims on my HT Wagon. Do you remove the chrome trims 1st and if so how, or do you remove the glass and rubber as one and then remove the chrome trims last,
thanks in advance, Clint

WTB Premier Horn Relay EH

Hi guys/gals, I'm looking for a horn relay for my EH Premier. I've been on the hunt for sum time to find an original one. RVB brand i think? If any1 has just a pic of an original, that would be ok. I'd find something similar as a substitute. I am a member of the EJ-EH club QLd.

any reply would be much appreciated.

HQ GTS Fuel Gauge

A mate has a magnetic type GTS fuel gauge in his HQ one tonner. It is an early 1972 gauge with orange marking.
The gauge doesn't work and he has been told it isn't repairable.
Does anybody know of someone who put new workings from a compatable gauge in this GTS gauge or have any ideas?
Would the workings from a Kingswood type fuel gauge fit in the GTS Fuel gauge?

Hq Tonner Fuel Tank

I have bought a replacement fuel tank for the tonner. The 'new' one has the fuel pick up line but also another line into the top of the tank. I assume it is from a later tonner that had the carbon canister (pollution) setup? Can I simply block this off or do I need to run it somewhere? I am not sure what the original HQ non pollution setup looked like?

Thanks,

hz clutch help, please

hey there,

Have just swapped my old, rivetted clutch from the 3 speed, manual coloum change on my HZ ute, which i am in the process of doing a small rebuild, Can any one please email, or post some pictures of the clutch cable going into where the bell housing goes, i can't remember there being a spring holding the fork back.

Is there a spring that holds the thrust bearing relase fork back on this?
Or, how does the fork hold back?
Any help would be great.

HD HR Nationals Toowoomba 2011

Just got home today from the 2011 HD HR Nationals held in Toowoomba, Queensland. I had a great time with the annual reunion of friends from around the country and made a few new ones there as well. Seen a lot of the same old bunch of cars (which is always good) but also a few "new" HD and HRs as well.
I didnt take my car up but flew up instead. Not sure that was the right thing to do as my return home flight from Brisbane got cancelled due to volcanic ash in Melbourne. I ended up flying out of Coolangatta to Adelaide last night, and then home to Mount Gambier today. One thing out of it I got the visit QLD, NSW, and SA all in one day. lol. Certainly made the return trip a long one but least I got home, not like others who are still stranded.

What's your favourite tool in the garage?

What tool do you have that you can't live without? It may be large, it may be small. Mine is this stubby Sidchrome 1/2"x9/16" ring spanner. It's only 120mm long and just seems to be the best spanner for almost every job..

HG with HQ-Z disc drama

Hey guys its taken me a long time and a lot of swearing to convert my hg from drums all round; to power assisted hq stub axles/discs(with HG stud pattern). Im at the tail end now and went to put the wheels back on only to find the wheels don't quite fit over the calipers!!!

Has anyone had this drama ? the wheels are standard 14" HG wheels.

Im wondering if the caliper is too large ? believe they were salvaged from a HX ute, they are PBR brand.

tried a 3 mm spacer with no luck and also discovered they are illegal anyway so dont really want to go down that path.
