Oil light on when clutch pedal in...

Hi everybody,

I noticed this problem when in some stop-start traffic at the start of a 2 hour drive down south. I'd put in the clutch and the oil light would come on, then go off when the clutch pedal came out.

Once out on the clear road it was fine for about an hour forty minutes then the oil light came on and stayed on. The car had recently been serviced with new oil and filter so I thought maybe the sump plug might have rattled loose. I pulled over at a servo, it hadn't. I waited awhile and checked the oil and it was fine. I finished the trip and now s few days on it still comes on all the time.

I'm going to test the oil light wires but the whole clutch thing has me thrown. My leading ideas are blockage/oil pump fault or a problem with the lifters.

Asbestos?

Asbestos?

Can anyone POSITIVELY identify the stuff in the pictures (see attachments)?

Note - old Holden related, in so far as this item was discovered in the shed where my old Holden is being worked on.

I started a shed cleanup yesterday and found this item in an undisturbed area of the shed. It's been there untouched for about six years. It's an engine cover panel from a 1993 Van Dieman FF racing car we purchased back in 2006. The car came with a lot of spare body panels including this one, so I don't know the history of the panel and haven't touched it since.

This is the first time I've ever bothered to look at the stuff we got because the car hasn't ever needed any major body repairs over the years we've raced it.

LS1 lifter noise

Did an oil change on my VU ute which has the LS1 engine in it.Motor was pretty quite before the oil change but has had lifter noise since, immediately afterwards.Noise goes away after about a minute but I'm a bit concerned because it wasn't there before.I am thinking that maybe I have the wrong grade oil?Any ideas guys?I'm hoping its something simple.

Need help! Exhaust fumes inside

I have a problem with exhaust fumes getting inside the car when I open the drivers window in my HQ. I have replaced the boot seal with a brand new one and have checked the entire boot for holes to which there are none.Does anyone have any ideas? Obviously its a vaccum problem as theres no fumes when all the windows are up.

Holiday Jobs

I have five days off this Xmas starting Saturday, so plan to spend them getting the EJ fully sorted out. All parts have arrived and this is what I will be doing:

1: New Tailshaft. Had a brand new shaft built by the guys at Hardy-Spicer. Old one was dented, Yoke was scored and joints were worn so not much more to have a brand new shaft built. 2.75" as opposed to original 2.5". Shaft got a couple of tiny dings in shipping, but pretty sure it will be OK. Hopefully will finally cure my vibration issues!

2: New Rear Shocks. Old ones are leaking badly and not doing the job. Pair of nice new gas jobbies will be fitted

3: New Rear Brakes. Will strip down and rebuild the rear brakes, new cylinders and shoes.

4: Full underbody degrease and clean
