HQ and HZ lower control arm differences

Hi guys,

I've recently fitted a HZ front subframe to my HQ with all new bushes, rubbers, shocks etc.

I've just taken it to a suspension place for a wheel alignment and was told that they could not get the caster correct. The left lower control arm is 10mm shorter and is a little narrower on the ends where the bush goes in.

Because of this, he could only get the caster to about +0.30 from memory (should be +2.3 on both sides?). You can also see that the bush is being pulled out and due to the arm being too narrow.

And what time do you call this!!??

I've been away from Oldholden for a while now.....better try and get back into the swing of things!
It's funny how life gets in the way....or stufff get in the way of life!!
I still have "Alice" & stilll looking after the Father-outlaws HZ. My young bloke gets his L's soon and has a manual VS ute waiting for him. Pretty handy having a dad who is also a mechanic, we bought it cheap because the clutch was knackered.
My students have been fantastic, I was also a joint co-ordinator for the year 8's this year, very rewarding, but very full on, no spare time.

LC-LJ Steering Problem

Anyone that drives an LC or LJ torana - check
old nolethane steering shaft joiner at the
back of the engine bay.

One of my mates had me help him change out a
radiator and I noticed the old red nolethane
had cracked, and as I pointed at it saying
WTF I then pushed it with my finger and it
fell apart into ..... 3 parts.

We don't know where the other part of it went
so everyone please check it out.

Fuel pump to carb line

Hey guys im putting a 34 adm weber onto my 202.

Just wondering what you guys did for a fuel line from the pump to the carb. I dont want to cut up my original line.
I was thinking a braided line but i dont know the size that screws into the pump.

I have heard of people just using rubber fuel line and hose clamps each end.

Any info will help

Cheers
Steve

VC Wiring Question

g'day,

ive just put my engine back in the vc after rebuild, it's running a blue 202 with trimatic. I've wired it all up except one wire. it's a pink/tan looking wire and its in the same loom plastic for the anti dieseling solenoid but im not sure where exactly it would go. i know its for instrument lights and fuel/temp gauge on the dash because i thought it hooked up to the starter motor and when i did that it iluminated all the dash dummy lights even with no key in the ignition. any help would be amazing

Fuel Economy

Ive got a 202 6 cylinder 3.3L blue engine in my wb panelvan and my fuel consumption seems to be through the roof. Ive made around 260kms to a 70.4L tank. Which I think roughly calculates to 26L/100km. (Suburban driving.) ,This is assuming that my tank is actually empty when the gauge says it is. I need to know if theres anyway to reduce this as I'm planning to do an interstate road trip in the near future.
Any help greatly appreciated!
