HG wiper arm removal

Hi all.
Would anyone know how I get the whole piece out that attaches to the wiper arm? I need to completely replace the whole thing as the previous owner has put 2 passenger side units on both sides. Do I need to pull the dash out? Thanks for any insight...

Bench Seat Re-Trim

I bought a replacement cover for my HR front bench seat (just under a $1000 - ouch)...it's been sitting in a box in the spare room for too long.. Both the lower cushion and backrest. I was going to get a local trimmer to fit for me - quote was $200 but unfor he can't do it for quite a few months. I was thinking of having a go myself...thinking I just need some hog rings and pliers...has anyone fitted one before and if so any tips - how difficult is it? Any feedback appreciated..

ARF 206-2802 Fly Wheel Bolt Kit

Hello All,

It has been a long while since I took my fly wheel off and had it resurfaced. I cannot remember if the fly wheel bolts were fitted with washers or not?

Can someone let me know if they need flat washers, spring washers or no washers?

Also what torque settings should the bolts be tightened to?

Kind regards
Lionel

What are the odds ?

Coming home from Brisbane today I saw a fairly tidy black s series just like the pic above valiant for sale in a paddock not far out of Brunswick heads. about 10 minutes later I passed another black s series on the back of a tilt tray heading North. I didnt see any holdens older than 90's commodores going up or back though :(

Now s and r series Vals are uncommon at the best of times but 2 in one day and the same colour !!!
I really like the r series but I'd take an S series in a heartbeat!

UC starfire 4 stall problems

Hi. Have a UC sunbird. Have just spend $1000s on it mechanically and body and interior are spec. Does well driving initially but after time (or when to come home) it can just stall when slowing at traffic lights or even to turn corner. It’s an auto. Is it possible this could be a fuel filter problem? Carby was reco’d only 500kms ago as it had bad fuel at some point. The fuel tank has also recently been drained and removed for rust/paint work. It’s like it just runs out of petrol but has full tank??
