gas

Hi all,

I'm after some opinions on which water outlets to use for my LPG converter. I've recently put a 202 from a vc commodore in my land rover, replacing the original LR 6 cyl. Initially it ran quite well on gas but after trying to bleed the cooling system properly i noticed the converter had frozen and the feed pipes and bottom hose were cold, so i cleared and flushed everything, replaced the water pump and thermostat and bled again.

Stereo troubles

Hi all

Having problems with the new stereo I bought yesterday
It's all brand new clarion gear I got from the shop I wired it all up and for some reason if u turn the volume up past 22 roughly depending on the song it turns off and ten back on and off etc.... And even if I leave it on lower it will do it aswell.
I have done plenty of stereos for mates before with no dramas but this is really pissing me off. I have checked every join and it's all fine taped over ever crimp connector to be sure but still shorts. Checked earth everything an still does it.

My Return to oldholden

Some of you would remember me as Quents 1 tonner.
Well i still have the 1 tonner , but have recently purchased a HJ sedan also.
I'm looking at getting back into the car scene again as im not working away as much as i was.
So any perth cruises coming up i'd be interested in catching up with everyone.
While i'm posting I'm looking for a power steering pump bracket for a red 6 cyl.

Cheers Quent...

My HQ GTS Fuel gauge stays on empty. Why???

Hi everyone,

I've recently fitted my GTS fuel gauge to my HQ but is constant sitting in 'EMPTY'. The gauge has been professionally tested before fitting, I read through the GM HQ series manual and it states that if guage reads E that the wire to the sender unit could be grounded so I ran a new wire and still have same problem. The manual also states that of the is an open circuit that guage will read FULL. so I disconnected the tan wire at the gauge but it still reads empty.
Am I checking this right is there another way to check?

Hope one of you can give me some tips

not old holden

GDay Fellas, not OH, but wife has a 98 LX rodeo petrol V6, have to do the spark plugs but prob is when i undo the two retaining bolts to remove the coil/lead unit, there's a tube that slides down into the spark plug housing. The two wires running to the coil unit are not long enough to slide out the coil and tube. Question how do I remove the wires to the coil unit. Dont want to force anything just in case. Have checked net, it tells me everthing else but not that. Tks in advance. Regards Texas

EFI 5.0L/ 4L60E into HT/HG

Currently droppin a 304 & 4L60E into the old girl. Just wondering what options are available for the speedo as far as I can tell I can fork out $895 to CRS for a "SCB BOX-ELECTRONIC TO MANUAL SPEEDO DRIVE" or try to use a electric speedo.
It would probably be easier if I had a T400 or 350, but I would prefer if possible to use the gear I already have.
Would love to know if there is another option(s) that I have missed in my searching, so any help particularly from someone who has done this conversion would be awesome.

Transmission Controllers

I was wondering if anybody has had much to do with transmission controllers.I have 2 maybe dumb questions..I have a Hz 1 tonner that I am re-building...I took the engine and gearbox out of a VR 5ltr commodore and had both reconditioned, I replaced the manifold with a Harrop single plane and topped that with a 670 Holley, I was told that I needed a Trans controller and I purchased a TCI EZ-TCU controller....Good time to add "I know extremely little about cars"....
Q1. I have a HEI Distributer so can I just buy a CD ignition box and which would people recommend.

LONG TERM CAR ADERTiSEMENTS

I often look through the cars that are advertised on the right hand side of the oldholden page. Not because I want to buy I don't have any spare cash, I just dream on. There are always a couple of cars that have been advertised mainly on eBay for months on end. I can't help thinking is there something wrong with these cars? Should there be a time limited on how long you can advertise a car. Cars that are good value don't last long, cars that are suspect may take a little longer, any thoughts cheers

VN diff upgrade.

Thinking of going to VN diff, the old banjo is getting harder to keep heads in for long... not breaking them, just wearing them out! Can't find a Salisbury cheap enough and they don't come with 3.9 gears. Heaps of BW diffs around for as little as $80. Mates dad owns a machine shop, can weld the 4 link brackets on, using some from a spare housing I have. Does anyone know (stupid question?) which other model came with the 3.9 gears?

Looking for an Alternator

Morning everyone.

I am trying to track down a replacement alternator for a mid 2000 Astra. Not Old Holden, but a buggered Holden.

It would need to be in the Albury/Wodonga area or close enough to there. Needed to get a new business partner to work on Monday.

If anyone has something, please let me know on 0419 369 748 and I will organise to get it.

Cheers,

Webber
