starter motor issue

just would like to know what would cause a starter motor to not stop working even when the ignition is off and I had to disconnect the battery to stop it from operating...
is that a solanoid issue? if I put another solanoid on it will that fix that or is the starter motor kaput?
cheers

73 HQ Ute and cooling systems ??

So lets start with what I have and where I am,,,

Bel is a 73 HQ Ute Belmont, running a Chevy 383 with a TH 700 R4 transmission. Now to make things fun both me and Bel are located State Side ( U.S.A.)

So my question is what do you all use to help keep the TH 700 running cool ??

I have a transmission cooler in the radiator pushing to a Transmission cooler from PAC TEN ( who built my transmission )but I could not mount the electric transmission cooling fan.

Also besides Resto Country who else do you use use finding parts ????

HEI Dizzy

What is the best coil to run with a Bosch HEI Distributor on a 3.3 blue six? Is there any gains to be had by buying something fancy or expensive?
Cheers, Mick.

Power steering issue. VB commodore.

Hi there,

I’ve got a newly rebuilt power steering pump and rack in the vb. Hoses correctly connected and sound in the pump is full.

I start it up on stands to properly bleed the fluid through and as soon as I touch the steering g wheel, it violently spins to the left and wants to keep going.

Any ideas? The builder isn’t on the weekend and just wanting to check if I’m doing something stupid first.

hz rear screen lower clips

gday boys,

does anyone know where I can get new rear windscreen lower edge clips/brackets (see pics).

what I need are NOT the type of clip that fit into the lugs for the front screen (and the top of the rear screen), rather the ones that slide into along the lower stainless mould then screw in. 8 are needed.

ta.
