Spigot bearing installation

Hi guys. Any good threads around on spigot bearing installation? I've just bought a new spigot bearing from Dellow to put into the vt motor crank to suit my supra box. I noticed the old spigot on the wb turbo block crank is different. The old spigot had a wide face and lip controlling the seating depth. I'm worried now the new one will be the wrong depth if i seat it flush.
I'm wondering if i may need to buy a different bush and how to install it correctly

HONE VAN NUMBER 1

Hi All!
The Van has a new muffler fitted being supplied by Settlement Road Exhaust in Thomastown, Victoria. Only $42 freight to Blackbutt in Qld! Fitted perfectly too.
Also fitted a new pivot and plungers for the top tail gate as well as new cables for the bottom tail gate. However, I am missing the large countersunk screw on one of the cable brackets on the gate. Anyone have a spare? I haven't checked if anyone sells new ones?
The manifolds are off now to drill out the studs on the flange and replace with new ones. The faces on the exhaust manifold will be skimmed while they are off.
I will need a complete new wiring harness too. Anyone know a supplier? I've checked a few websites to no avail.

202 Carb problem

Engine stalled today and wouldn't start back up. Pouring fuel into it fires over but then it coughs and struggles to stay going then chokes out when accelerator is pumped. Also had problems starting in the cold so I'm thinking they are related. Visually nothing appears to be a problem and the fuel filter is new.
Should I overhaul the Carby or is there something I should look at first?

Thanks in advance

Holdenpaedia error

On this page http://holdenpaedia.... the way to calculate compression ration is given as cylinder volume divided by combustion chamber volume. The correct way is (cylinder + combustion chamber) divided by combustion chamber. That is to say, the largest combined volume divided by the smallest combined volume.

202 temp sensor removal

Having trouble removing the temp sensor bolt. The engine currently has no sensor but what looks like an adaptor with a small plug in it. I've bought a sensor and want to put it in but I'm having trouble removing the adaptor. It is behind the Carby passenger side of engine? The rocker cover seems to be stoping my socket from getting hold of it. Anyone else had this problem?

HT Power Steer Pitman Arm

G'day,

I've fitted the genuine ram style power steer to my HT and I'm trying to locate the correct Pitman Arm. Anyone know about these?

http://www.ebay.com....

Apparently they use a standard Pitman Arm and remanufacture it to replicate the Power Steer version... Pricey though, $229 delivered...
