holden rodeo help

i know that its not quite holden but i was hoping that some one may be able to put me on to a web site or give me some advice on rear transmission bearing on automatic holden rodeo, model TFD5SF with auto trans (from id plate) RMD. The ute is seventh month of 1992, and it is a two wheel drive petrol, if that helps.

Thanks for any advice in advance.

EH Wagon - Arm Rests + vent windows + rear seat latch

A few queries

1)Just wondering if anyone has used arm rests off a different vehicle on their EH?Trying to find EH ones in decent nick are like working out who farted at a pigfarm, so now looking for options. I guess it won't be that difficult a task, as I am considering re-doing the trim anyway, but does anyone know of anything that has the holes with same distance between? Gemini maybe? Any help appreciated.

2) Also need some rubbers for around the front quarter vents, and just wondering if anyone has seen them selling anywhere apart from rare spares? They seem a bit pricey at rarespares, but I guess if they are the only place to sell them, then it's justified. Also if anyone has a right hand side EH vent window for sale in good nick, let me know. will pay postage etc.

308 HEI went KaBoom !

Hi Everyone,

Just curious if anyone else has seen this?

The WB Deville stalled and would not start last Tuesday Arvo.

No Spark so it was pushed back to the kerb.

Got it running again ( In a rough fashion ) about 5 mins later and limped it home.

Got it home , shut it down & tried to re-start it -> No Go No Spark.

Had this happen years ago in this car and the HEI coil was the problem ( In over 30 years of being around cars I'd NEVER seen a coil fail ! )

Swiped another coil of the MULE / PARTS WB in the backyard and fitted it , Still No Spark.

OK must be the HEI Dissy , Had a spare Dissy sitting in the garage , Fitted that up & it all worked as per normal.

Questions :-

1/ I've never had a Ignition Coil fail prior to the 1 only time 7 Years ago

Celica Supra 5 speed in EH Ute

Gents,
Needing a new Slave cylinder for the clutch on the EH (Celica Supra 5spd). Anyone know where to source one new/second hand at a reasonable price ?

Anyone run something similar with a clutch cable ? As opposed to hydraulic ? And Pro's/Con's you could help me with. Cheers.

Not so old Holden For Sale in Perth

G'day,

Mrs Qute's Tigra convertible/coupe is up for sale as the Lease is coming to an end. Unfortunately, Holden don't sell them any more so her new car won't be a Holden...

Anyway, the Tigra was bought in Feb 06 and has done about 55,000 K's. It has been Dealer Serviced since new and has a FSH.

The onlly real sign of wear in it is on the outside of the backrest of the driver's seat as she is short so has the seat well forward...

Everything works as it should. The brakes and ignition switch have recently been replaced so no worries there.

We have a trade-in valuation from the Dealer and also know what they sell for so we're aiming for somewhere in the middle: About $14,500

Please note the car is in Perth.

Electric tailgate

Hi All,
Just not too sure where the safety switch attaches.
Also the manual says the window shouldn only be operable with the ignition in on pozzy.
Does that mean from the internal switch only? sounds a bit painful if you just want to put some shopping in rear then get more or whatever, and i want to make it open / close by remote.
Any advise regarding electric T.Gates is welcome as we are upgrading from wind up.
Thanks!

Are they legal in Vic??

We were recently given a wood rimmed Autotechnica Steeriring wheel for the young blokes VR commodore. He commented that they may not be legal anymore. Has anyone got any info or stories relating to the legality of them? I've had the odd canary on the odd car over the years, most had Questionable Sports type steering wheels, But Ive never been, nor do I know anyone who's been Pinged for having one.
