Hg Holden heater/demister

Just took a hg kingswood over the pits and part of the list given back is having a demister that works and blows warm air. The demister used to be quite strong however never blew warm air and has since stopped working. It has a heater box in place however all of the hoses running to the engine are blanked off. Will simply connecting these provide warm air for the demister? How do I go about troubleshooting a demister that does not work?

Can anyone help me please

I`m looking for a round LED front parking light. And was wondering if you would have a 12 volt wiper moter and if it can be made to fit in my 1981 Bedford Domino bus as all the linkages are there? And also I was wondering if you would know where to find a manual or a diagram or instruction or operator`s manual to show what all the interior dash switches do?

Holden H series fuse holder parts

Does any one manufacture new components to replace the rusty fuse holders that cause higher electrical drain on wiring .
2 wires on this board have cooked the insulation on. could have led to a fire. I do not wish for a modern blade replacement .

308, Trying to find a rattle

Hi All,

I got my 308 rebuilt, about 2 years ago. Has a Quadrajet, Bosch HEI, edelbrock performer, crane 276, 30 thou flat tops L34 heads always running 98 octane.

It would have all of about 500kms at this point. Starts and runs well. Issue i have is when cruising in 4th (Aussie 4 speed) If i lower the revs then accelerate theres a funny sort of flapping/rattle noise. It dosent sound nasty but it is annoying. I have found that if i accelerate and pull the choke slightly in (manual choke) it stops, but the engine bogs down.

FC front suspension replacement

I have an FC holden that is having a full chassis installed so that it can be fitted with an LS1 drive train. I am looking for ideas for a replacement front suspension and power steering rack for better road holding. I don't want to increase the front track width if possible. Any ideas? kch@xtra.co.nz

Rochester tuning

Hey guys, I need a bit of help with a Rochester on my 308. It’s a factory commodore unit which runs absolutely perfect on the primaries, it actually goes rather well and will rev out, but once you hit the throttle and open up the 4 barrel it really dies, it struggles to get to 3500 rpm! I pulled the air cleaner off it and manually opened up the throttle to see if I could see what was going on, on the primary circuit its pumping fuel but once you open the secondaries no fuel squirts in?

HQ Coupe roof strip

Hi I am wondering if anybody can help me with some information about this strip that I have pictured for my HQ Coupe
I know that it screws to the roof of my car but these strips had silicon all over them and I am wondering does this need to be applied to the strip before I screw them on also is there a rubber in my kit that I should fit prior to fitting them on.
