New work guide on the installation of an electric water pump and controller

I'm really happy with this guide, and also extremely happy with the performance of the new parts. The guide can be found here: http://gallery.oldho...

In short, this guide is detailing the replacement of the standard water pump with an electric water pump and controller. It was so effective that I am also thinking of putting one on the wifes car next year, although I will be putting thermatic fans on her car first because they made the job so much simpler.

There's also a review at the end of the guide which I will be adding to over time, with economy figures etc I will wait a while first though because I currently have gearbox problems which are affecting my economy.

Escape from the shed

This is another recent photo of my Hr taken in Windsor. For all those who notice the bottom of rear door its bitumen that ran from inside the door,and i was to lazy to clean it at the time. For anyone who cares i mixed underbody sealant and kero to make a thin oily substance and sprayed in through a degreaser gun onto the floor pans and inner doors and [Naughty Pottyword] this things quiet at speed, only wind noise my ed xr8 makes more road noise. This was the first and only time out of the shed this year. The wheels were polished by a sydney metro business who qouted me 70 bucks per rim, but when i collected them the price escalated to 140 bucks per rim!

What you guys reckon?

This is my Hr sedan that ive had since i was fifteen, im now 27 and its been rebuilt so many times. It is now straight white, has grey leather prem interior and a 186s, Five speed and 3:08 Banjo. Just got the simmons after finishing the car and ive had it in the shed since except for sunny day drives, i went for a drive from Sydney about a month ago and ended up in Tenterfield, that was a looong sunday drive. Just wandering what you guys think of my handy work. I bought this car for 12oo bucks in Sussex Inlet nsw, you'd imagine it would be rusted near the coast, but its never been an issue, mu

Forgotten Treasure

I've recently gone fishing through my parents garage looking for a HR blinker switch when my missus says to me "You've still got that dam ute". Ive known for 5 years it was there but never touched it and basically forgot it, this picture was taken after unloading crap from in and on top of it (note dust). This car has a hot red motor, full manual trimatic, 9 inch with 4:33's and is mini tubbed. I recently discovered it still runs and only requires a rewire because some bastard rat chewed the harness, any ideas on a price for a rewire these days people?? Any offers???
