Trouble with hq indicators

I'm having trouble with the indicators on my hq Kingswood. Headlights work driving lights and brake lights work but indicators won't work. The side markers light up when I turn the indicators on but don't flash and the arrows on the dash also light up and don't flash. I did noticed a very faint glow from the front left Indy bulb when turned on but no flashing. Any ideas what the problem could be. I have removed the steering wheel to check out the plastic gadget in the steering column could this be the problem? Any help would be appreciated.

standard hz tyres and exhaust

gday all,

can any of you boys, who prefer keeping stuff standard, please recommend to me:

1) a 14" x 195 standard radial tyre. i'm using wildcats at the moment because (he reckons) it's virtually all he could get for me ol' girl . i couldn't get bridgestone b49s - discontinued. i quite like the red pin stripes tyres. they're going on genuine gmh gts rims.

2) a standard muffler that's really nice and quiet. the one i got (ripped off badly - another sublet story...) annoys me - it's too noisy when on the expressway. there's probably nothing in the bl**dy thing...

Bit of a mystery

So yesterday morning I took the old girl for a run down the Princes Highway to Darkes Forest and back. She ran like a dream, nice and smooth and no dramas. Last night started her up to drive to a club meeting and she was idling roughly, and revving up roughly, although drove fine once on the road with the hammer down. Left her overnight and today, just started her up from cold and she is idling and revving just fine.

Full respray

Hi
Anyone recommend someone in adelaide to complete full respray including rust removal etc.
Car is a HR and is straight, with some minor surface rust.
I want to keep the car for a while ( concourse not show car), so not interested in a bog up job. Also keen to understand ball park price based on experience ?
Thanks

shed

So the real estate agent came around today to look at the shed, reckons it will be coming down, as its a danger, and the way the land lord is, I don't think he will replace it.
So being a rental what are some option for the monaro? Any one used a shipping container? Them plastic y build car ports with the sides?

Thoughts?

Wanted: HZ Holden One Tonner Commercial Bumper

Hi All,

I am still chasing a HZ Holden One Tonner Commercial bumper in good condition with no dents.
I am in the Hawkesbury Area, NSW. But willing to travel within reason.

The bumper should look the same as this.

(But without the big dent)

Cheers
Scott

VK EFI 202 conversion wiring dramas

Hi All,

I am wiring up a VK EFI setup into a hz tunner (202) and have come across an unexpected problem with the wiring.

1/ It seems there is a 1 spare light blue and 1 spare white wire at the injector end of the harness and I am unsure of it's purpose, I have already endcapped one of the light blue wires, and from the photos you will notice I have to reconnect a rear injector connector. (I already have the 3 light blue and white wires for the rear most injectors).

2/ As per "Sammy's" VK wiring mod diagram the injector white wire goes back to the tachometric relay, however previous posts don't show this to be the case with the 7 pin relay, ie 87b - fuel pump power, 87 - EFI power, 31 - earth, 50 - starter signal, 1 - ign coil -ve, 15 - ign key on, 30 - batt +12V.
