Holden 6 Clutch kit

Gday

Finally picked up a really cheap rebuilt aussie 4 speed.

Now I have left over cash so I figure I will replace the clutch while Im on the job.. Anyone recommend a brand? Looking at RPM kits on ebay, only thing is they are heavy duty. Will that make the pedal stiff to push in? Only wondering whether its worth forking out that little bit extra. I only poke around most of the time anyway..

help! @#$! - how to remove the HOLDEN letters off an HT bonnet

Hi!

i'm about to try and remove the H O L D E N out of my HT bonnet without breaking them.
Looking at the underside of the O L D E they have what looks like a glue on the pin to hold it in through the bonnet skin.

any tips on how to get em out - i want them out alive with both their legs still attached

Thanks

PS no i haven't tried turps/thinners etc yet - i don't want to un-necessarily root the paint just quite yet.

V8 Cam question

Sorry to come across as a knob, but as I've said a few times, I have nfi when it comes to anything that has 2 more or 2 less cylinders than a straight six.

My question is regarding the camshaft from a VN era Holden V8. I have been offered one with lifters for an engine I have here (at a good price) but it came from a VN 5.0 litre injected jigger, however the guy says that it is the same as the red, blue and black cams... is this true or am I being taken advantage of?

wiper upgrade?

It is raining a lot here in Perf lately.
It has highlighted the dated wiper setup in my HG.
Are there any wiper upgrades I can do either motor or electrical or both?
A faster high speed would be nice and an intermittent would be nice.
"invisible" would be prefered but anything short of a new steering column would be considered

Getting P-Plates early

I think i've asked this before but, does anybody know if there is a way that you are able to get your p's early in NSW just to travel to and from work? I would realy love it if there was a way.

Hq coupe

Guys I am looking at a few different HQ coupes to fix up. Probably going to buy an LS because they are cheaper and I am not worried about keeping it original. I Was wondering if the floors and boot floor needs replacing could they be cut from a good HQ sedan? Also how hard are coupe front and back windscreens to obtain and the chrome around the windows? Is it worth getting one complete because the 2 door specific stuff is too hard to find?
Cheers

wiper speeds

Hi,all....
With all the rain on and off lately,the wipers on my HZ have been getting a good workout....but wiper switch is similar to early commodores (in blinker switch) and only has slow/fast.
Is there any shop item I can buy that will give me variable/intermittent speeds??
I (very) vaguely remember something back in mid-80`s that allowed variable speeds,but is there anything like that available now?
Would prefer something new,rather than change lots of 2nd hand things from later c`dores etc.

186 idling settings

Hi,all....
Just (finally) got around to firing up my LH`s red 186....now I need to tune it.
I am familiar with tuning red 202`s,but this is my first ever 186,....can someone tell me what a 186 idling (manual g`box) should be set at??
I assume a 186 and 202 should be fairly similar to tune??

Dusty

Jumper leads rating...

My battery is rated at 520CCA.
Can someone tell me what the relationship is between jumper lead rate and that of the battery?
I've seen 200amp rated leads and even 100amp I think. I don't recall ever having a battery with a CCA figure so low, so I'm guessing the figure doesn't need to match.

What can I safely get away with?

Ta,

Michael - of Rosewood.
