186 Rear Main Bearing Cap Torque

Hi, been a long time since I posted anything here.
Anyway I'm doing a rear main rope seal on a 186 and I'm just about to do up the mains caps. My ellery's manual says the mains caps torque spec is 60 - 70 lb/ft but it then also says that the rear main bearing cap torque spec is only 20 - 26 lb/ft. Does that sound right? Never done one before and not sure myself. Anyone able to shed some light on this for me at all? Thanks.

Holden EH EJ Nasco / VDO clock gauge

Hi.. I was wondering if anyone out there has the fitting instructions for the FB to EH VDO Clock gauge.
They came with a fitting instruction sheet; and although the wiring seems pretty basic, I would just like to read their instructions. Also, as these were originally meant for the FB-EK, and therefore have a different facia setup than the EH, do people change the Fuel gauge to match. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

Glyn

Speaking of Kombis with funny motors.

Anyone who went to Castlereagh should know the Mechanical Ape.
It had a V8 in the back.

The public

I was over at my mate's workshop getting some new tyres on the EH.
A bloke drives his car into the workshop, opens the bonnet and asks if someone can remove the engine cover so he could put some spark plus in. He couldn't do it because it had "those hexagon things" in it.
So my mate finished his conversation with the paying customer while this bloke stood impatiently with one hand on the open bonnet.

Fuel filler hoses

Hi guys, I have a EH ute, and I've had to remove the fuel tank because the car was left sitting for eons with fuel sitting in it, the sludge I got out of it was horrid. It looked like black thick mud and the smell almost made my legs buckle. Any way I managed to get it all cleaned out and was trying to source the fuel filler hose and the hose from the tank to the fuel line, I'm having trouble finding anything for my model, am I able to fit something from another model perhaps.
Thanks Shell Sable
