HEI Distributor conversion

Hi all, kinda new here and new to mechanical side of old holdens. Quick question and hopefully a quick answer.

I have a HJ Ute with a 253 engine that has recently been into the mechanics shop to get the gas tank and all of its components out of the car, its been converted back to straight petrol now (thank god), all done and no problems.

While getting worked on I decided to ask the mechanic to upgrade the distributor from points to HEI as I am just about to use my ute everyday to get to and from work I thought I would just make it that bit easier to start the thing in the mornings etc.

attaching vacuum gauge

Hey guys,
where do I attach a vacuum gauge for
a) temporary tuning
b) permanent in dash

do those pluglooking spots come out easily? threaded?
If I just pull the PCV hose off do i need to plug the hose? or leave it open.

this holdenpaedia article appears to be very usefull. I will be following it eventually.

Spring is here!

Hi Guys

Haven't been on here for a couple of months - the EH is running well and it'll be getting some more use now the sun is starting to shine. Took it for a quick spin this morning to the YouYangs :)

While I'm here I have to mention I'm fundraising at the moment for the Cancer Council - I'm taking part in the Mystery-Box rally ( http://www.mystery-b... ) in Oct which should not only be a bit of fun but more importantly raises cash for a great cause. Oldholden.com is a great community that I've been proud to be a part of several years and I'd be stoked if anyone was able to contribute to our efforts by making a small donation.
Donations can be made here: http://www.everydayh...

MyEH Rattle revealed

The torque converter cover is off and here is what I found. My amateur diagnosis in this [http://oldholden.com...|POST] was a torque converter to flexplate bolt had come loose and was rattling it's way around in the inspection cover. I WAS RIGHT. However all 3 converter bolts had come undone. So there was no drive connection between the transmission and engine yet I drove the car home. I guess the heavens were being nice to me. I found 1 bolt in the bottom of the cover, a second, as seen in this pic was still in the flexplate.

Please forgive me but it's for a good mate

Evenin' All

Sorry about the content people's but I have a very good mate who is in need of a............FO#$ part.

He has changed from the Barn doors to the lift gate design on his ^&RD XH panelvan and desperately needs a upper tailgate handle. I have offered a Holden one but being the one eyed stubborn bastard that he is only a F*@D one will do.

So if anyone can help my mate out that'd be grouse.

Cheers all

Al
