Heater fan

Experiencing a problem with my WB caprice heater fan. HQ-HZ may be similar. The actual air blowing out of the ducts feels almost non existant, even when the fan is running flat out. The direction seems to be working, can feel a slight change up to the window on demist, the aircon and heater all work, the vacuum operated recirculate door is working. I have no problem pulling the dash apart if need be just wondering if anyone has resolved a similar problem and has any idea where the fault may be.

NSW Demerit point scheme.

Hi guys,

A quick story about the NSW demerit point scheme for any interested persons, or those in a similar situation awaiting lost points.

I was excited about getting 8 points back that I lost in 1 fowl swoop just over 3 years ago, but found out that the demerit points are kept on my licence for 3 years and 4 months.

I carefully read the RTA website that specifically states "If you incur the threshold number of demerit points within a three-year period, a licence suspension or refusal is applied. The three-year period is calculated between the dates the offences were committed. It ends on the day your most recent offence was committed." etc etc.

Setting non adjustable rockers

HI ALL,

First engine rebuild, I have nearly got my blue motor back together, wanted to double check setting pushrods/tappets/rockers.

I have a recon-ed blue motor head (the former was cracked) going in, Non adjustable roller rockers from the old head, new lifters, old push rods

To bolt the roller rockers straight down onto the head, I have a feeling the pushrods are too far down into the lifters, and I think I may need to put some washers under the roller rockers to lift them all up a bit.
