HG wiper arm removal

Hi all.
Would anyone know how I get the whole piece out that attaches to the wiper arm? I need to completely replace the whole thing as the previous owner has put 2 passenger side units on both sides. Do I need to pull the dash out? Thanks for any insight...

Bench Seat Re-Trim

I bought a replacement cover for my HR front bench seat (just under a $1000 - ouch)...it's been sitting in a box in the spare room for too long.. Both the lower cushion and backrest. I was going to get a local trimmer to fit for me - quote was $200 but unfor he can't do it for quite a few months. I was thinking of having a go myself...thinking I just need some hog rings and pliers...has anyone fitted one before and if so any tips - how difficult is it? Any feedback appreciated..

ARF 206-2802 Fly Wheel Bolt Kit

Hello All,

It has been a long while since I took my fly wheel off and had it resurfaced. I cannot remember if the fly wheel bolts were fitted with washers or not?

Can someone let me know if they need flat washers, spring washers or no washers?

Also what torque settings should the bolts be tightened to?

Kind regards
Lionel

UC starfire 4 stall problems

Hi. Have a UC sunbird. Have just spend $1000s on it mechanically and body and interior are spec. Does well driving initially but after time (or when to come home) it can just stall when slowing at traffic lights or even to turn corner. It’s an auto. Is it possible this could be a fuel filter problem? Carby was reco’d only 500kms ago as it had bad fuel at some point. The fuel tank has also recently been drained and removed for rust/paint work. It’s like it just runs out of petrol but has full tank??

34ADM onto Holden Blue 202 manifold

Hi All

I've bought a weber 34ADM off an xe/xf falcon I want to put on my blue manifold.
All the adapters say they suit DGV or DGEV weber's. Will this still suit my carb? I am not sure what that or ADM means

Thanks

engineering report problem

I was wondering if anyone knows what the requirements in Victoria were back in the late 80's or very early 90's to keep a cars engineers report after it had been registered using it, or know of any current engineers who did reports back then who should know laws at the time regarding keeping the report, as my father has lost or misplaced the engineers report for his car that was previously engineered and last registered over 20 years ago.
