HJ Kingswood stock Stromberg

Hi, I'm about to put a carby kit in the old single Strommy. What's a good starting point for the idle mixture screw to get it running well enough to get to the servo for a tune up? All the way in, back it out "X" times. That kinda thing. Thanks Gerry

Bell Housing Pattern

What other engines in the Chev/GM range share the same bell housing bolt pattern at the Holden (red/blue) engines? Any four cylinders in the 2.0 - 3.5 litre engine size?

Cheers, Mick.

Acdelco products

Hi, Just wondering if anyone uses Acdelco products and are they any good? I like the thought of using "genuine parts" next time I have to replace spark plugs a battery or oil. Also does anyone use holden PF10 oil filters rather than aftermarket bits on their red motor?

Thanks Luke.

HJ Kingswood Speedo

The speedo needle has dropped off :( It was bouncing for a while then just fell off. The odometer is working fine so I assume the cable etc is fine. Where do I start to fix this? Can I get the speedo out without removing the whole dash? Thanks Gerry

Hg idler set up

Hi
Does anyone know what the height/gaps are for setting up the steering idler on a HG Holden.
The shop manual tells how to set the distance between the face of the idler and idler bracket but no info on how far to screw the end in that goes into the draglink to get it to the right height, any help much appreciated.
