UC Air Con?

Howdy all just a quick air con question. I just made a bracket for a electric solenoid to attach it to my Impco 425 gas mixer to pickup the idle when the air con is turn.
Now question is the green positive wire coming from the back. Where do I wire this to.
Do I tap in to the wire that go's to the pump?
Many thanks in advance.
Cheers Shane

149 Motor

Image: 

Just scored a 149 Moror and matching box which I plan to do up and have ready in case the old 138 Red dies on me. I will be selling off the box, so if anyone is in need of an EH 3 speed box let me know.

I'll run a comp test on it to see what sort of condition it's in but I also want to fire it up on the bench to check oil pressure before I go ahead and tear it down. Is there any way to attach the starter motor without the gearbox attached so I can fire it up, or will I need the bell housing attached?

Classic Car Mag

Just got the latest issue of Australian Classic Car magazine - has some good stories on Old Holdens. One is Troy Cassar-Daly who has a nice EH and the other is a story of a family with an FC an FC and an EJ. Good read.

Big supermarket fuel discounts "no more"

No more than 4c litre as from 1st January because it's hurting the other fuel retailers.
http://www.accc.gov....
Bullsh!t.
The truth of the not-really-changed-at-all situation is in the last paragraph. Discounts in excess of 4c litre must be funded from fuel sales, includeing other items at the fuel service station.

Engine Troubles

Hi Guys,

I feel a bit silly. But I've decreased my engine bay and the engine will not start. It's been a good 3-4 hours and the best it's done was to start but as soon as I put in drive it stopped.
I've checked the distributor and it's fine.

Any tips for me????

Thanks

HR fuel gauge resistor

Thanks everyone for the replies, the resistor that I put in is a (1Watt 12R 5%) and yes I did read it backwards. will have to test the reading on the fuel gauge to see if it is accurate either by running out of fuel or by ohm meter on sender wire which is giving me a reading of 16ohms resistance. from the manual, empty is 0-0.5 ohms and full 29.6-31.3 ohms so the gauge should read just over half. and it is reading in between half and three quarters which is pretty close.

Bucket seats

Hi everyone, the bucket seats in my kingswood are looking a bit sad, the only really good parts are the rails. I have been quoted around $1000 to get them reupholstered. What I would really like to do is fit some later model seats. Wondering what kind would be relatively easy to fit to the existing rails. At my local wreckers I can pick up agood set of buckets for $100 bucks, any make any model, so if anyone has done a conversion like this I would love to hear from them. cheers.
