Brake lights/Hazard lights not working holden Jackaroo 85

Hi,

I have a problem with the brake lights and hazards not working on Jackaroo early 85 model. The fuse is ok. The wiring appears ok but is difficult to trace. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to start?

Cheers
Jezza

Pedal Problems

Hey Guys,

Just wondering if anyone could please post a picture of how a pedal set-up should look like for a '76 LX torana, it may seem like a silly question but I am generally struggling to figure it out and I cant find the info anywhere else on the net, so if someone could help me it would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers
Watto

carb to suit yellow terrra head

hello all,

im am looking at buying a 202 for my ht, but my luck has been pretty crap. first engine i brought the guys said it was a mint runner with new rings and bearings. ok it was possible but the crank was stuffed and must have worn the bearing pretty quick. second engine only good things were the crank, valves and tapids. now im looking at another engine but sounds a bit odd. 202/3.3 block, rings and bearings done - standard short block. yellow Terra head, they are unsure of what port it is and sounds like standard strongberg carb.

can you use a strongberg carb with a yellow terra head?

can you do anymore work to a yellow terra head?

also for knowledge as i am still learning, can you get yellow terra in 9 and 12 port?

your help will be a great help.

Mal Wood hydraulic clutch

Hi guys, I wanto install one of these under dash hydraulic clutch kits to my van..anyone done it? It sounds much more neat and reliable than the crs firewall conversion
Also, to remove the pressure plate do I need to take out the gearbox or the bell housing, trying to figure out how much work is involved, as the pressure plate may need to be machined down a bit (apparently to allow for the braided hydraulic lines and quartermaster hydraulic bearing)

They need to know what pressure plate I'm are using, and if it has rolled tipped, raised tipped, or flat fingers...I don't really know how to tell (don't have the car with me at the moment)....99% sure the pressure plate is original, although I've done the supra conversion. Still using the original rat-trap clutch ATM and its too heavy!

Rolling

In all the manuals the procedure for setting the mixture is to turn the screw in until the engine starts to die, then out again until it starts to "roll", then back off. What do they mean when they say "roll"?

HT Monaro GTS fuel filler and battery relocated

G'day people.

This HT GTS is unchanged since I bought it 5 years ago. I'd like to know the story behind the relocated fuel filler and battery and the plated up spare wheel well. I've always assumed that these were mods done by someone in the 80's or 90's when the car was last painted. Is there any way to tell if the car has any race/rally history or if the filler location is factory?

Thanks.

5 string banjo

It's always the way, got a couple of banjo diff centres off eBay a couple of months ago and finally got around to the change over. Being a HZ it should have come out of the factory with a fine spline diff and I had hoped it was fine spline but knew it could be coarse, especially when it's got a HQ motor in it.
So I pulled the axle out of the ute this mornin to check the spline and Murphy's law has prevailed, bloody coarse.

Reco engine plate from a grey motor

Found this plate on the side of a grey motor.
Nothing special just thought it looked good as you don't see things like this lying around still as in the plate.

HQ_350_STATSMAN

Hey, Was scrolling through your photos of the plenum chamber rust. From the photo pandoras box opened, it looks as if there is a rust hole under the windscreen about 6" to the right of center. Are you planning on total rust removal. That means windscreen out then remove tops of plenum chamber panel clean out repair then repaint. They are notorious for hiding rust in there. With mine (TONNER) i am removing all to do a proper job and complete redesign of the drain tube placment to prevent the lower guards and chassis from rustion as well.
