UC Air Con?

Howdy all just a quick air con question. I just made a bracket for a electric solenoid to attach it to my Impco 425 gas mixer to pickup the idle when the air con is turn.
Now question is the green positive wire coming from the back. Where do I wire this to.
Do I tap in to the wire that go's to the pump?
Many thanks in advance.
Cheers Shane

Big supermarket fuel discounts "no more"

No more than 4c litre as from 1st January because it's hurting the other fuel retailers.
http://www.accc.gov....
Bullsh!t.
The truth of the not-really-changed-at-all situation is in the last paragraph. Discounts in excess of 4c litre must be funded from fuel sales, includeing other items at the fuel service station.

Engine Troubles

Hi Guys,

I feel a bit silly. But I've decreased my engine bay and the engine will not start. It's been a good 3-4 hours and the best it's done was to start but as soon as I put in drive it stopped.
I've checked the distributor and it's fine.

Any tips for me????

Thanks

Bucket seats

Hi everyone, the bucket seats in my kingswood are looking a bit sad, the only really good parts are the rails. I have been quoted around $1000 to get them reupholstered. What I would really like to do is fit some later model seats. Wondering what kind would be relatively easy to fit to the existing rails. At my local wreckers I can pick up agood set of buckets for $100 bucks, any make any model, so if anyone has done a conversion like this I would love to hear from them. cheers.

Spring loose in HG handbrake lever

Does anyone have an pic/drawing of how the spring in the ratchet mechanism of the handle fits? Any help would be appreciated. Mine has come out, I've no idea why - it's not broken and the mechanism works OK, just the spring that holds the pawl in place is adrift. Thanks , Rod

Car width mirror to mirror

Hi all,

I was just wondering what car widths were on different cars mirror to mirror.
I have limited side access, and was just asking if people could post up what they have, old and new, and what the width of the vehicle is.

I have looked at alot of car specs, and google, but can't seem to find dimensions mirror to mirror.

Your help is kindly appreciated,
