Hydraulic accumulator.

I found out what these things are today.They are basically a fluid pressure relief shock absorber.
The one in our Rav4 failed at 5:45 this morning when I got in it to go work. I put my foot on the clutch pedal and it stayed on the floor, so I started the EH and woke the neighbours. LOL
When i got home I looked under the bonnet and saw clutch fluid sprayed all over the bellhousing.
I got my daughter to push the clutch in a and saw a stream of fluid squirting from a cast alloy housing in the clutch line.

HKTG fans - New poll posted

Which style mags best suit HKTG holdens?
(vote bottom RHS of page.)
This one is a tricky one for me. I reckon quite a few of the old school mag styles suit. I Have a set of deep dish 5 slotters I pulled of my kingswood 25 years ago and im going to start cleaning them up and polishing them over the next few weeks & months.
The standard rims and spats are coming off. I'm losing the sleeper look!

Replacement Ignition Coil

Hi all. In the middle of replacing the ignition coil in my '75 HJ Premier. Engine is the red 202.
The ignition coil in there at the moment is an old Lucas with little to no other markings on it. What would be the best replacement for this? I've been looking at the Bosch SU12R which seems to be the best bet but just wanted to double check.

186 crankshaft timing gear.

I have to replace the cam gear on a 186. I bought a new set of metal gears to replace the fibre one and I'm wondering how important it is to change the crank gear. It doesn't appear to have much wear and it's stuck on there pretty well so I'm tempted to leave it rather than open a can of worms in trying to get it off. My concern is that I've heard it will whine if I don't swap it, however I've heard other people say not to bother because the new gears will whine anyway. Anyone have experience with this? Thoughts?

HZ firewall transplant

Hi
My HZ (pano) has a firewall too far gone. I have a HQ (sedan) donor car with clean firewall. I'm looking at unpicking the spotwelds in the floor just in front of the rear console bracket which looks easy enough but I'm a bit more scared about where to cut the sills. I also need the A pillars as the HZ is knackered so I'll need to cut that almost at the top. Anyone out there have tips for me or pics of doing it? I've unpicked cowl and plenum from a WB so have done that before and have them saved as good replacements.
So far I am aware;
