HK Monaro electrical problem

Hi Guys,
Have just got my HK Monaro up and running after 8 years in hibernation. Put a new battery in a few months ago and everything was fine.

A couple of weeks ago the temp, fuel, amp and oil pressure gauges stopped working but eventually came on after about 10-15 mins of driving. When they do come on the red amp light illiminates as well. While all this is happening if I engage reverse (turbo 350 trans) all the gauges die again and the amp light gets brighter. When I disengage reverse everything goes back to normal.

Last night was the first time I drove it in the dark and there are no dash lights or courtesy lights, but the headlights work.

I'm thinking the alternator requires replacing?

186s with powerglide

Hi all, I am changing the motor in my HK Prem to a 186s. The motor has been fully rebuilt to correct specs. I have the 186s manifold and WW stromberg carby. Running the standard powerglide transmission. Does anyone have this set up already in their car and can put up some pics please? I need to see how the kickdown fo the powerglide works on the 186s manifold. If anyone has the linkages and would be willing to part with them please let me know
Thanks in advance

EJ idiot lights

Hi, can any EJ owners tell me if all 3 idiot lights ( gen, oil, temp ) turn on when you turn on an EJ ignition (without engine running). I've had mine off the road for a while and noticed that the temp light isn't working when ignition is on, but i've tested the temp circuit by earthing the wire at the sender and the temp bulb works fine. Also, is it the same for EH??

Does someone know the whereabouts of this old HX Prem wagon??

Hi all,

Im looking for help to try and locate a Contessa Gold 7/1976 HX Premier wagon my Dad owned between 1977 and 1995.
The car was Victorian registered from new, i do know its last Victorian address was in Frankston somewhere and that it left Vic in 2004 and was last registered in the Northern Territory with its matching numbers 253, but its registration was cancelled in 2006.
It was the family wagon i grew up with and my Dad and i pampered it until we eventually parted with it.
Over Christmas the family were watching old home movies which sparked my interest to try and locate the wagon. Ive got a whole collection of paperwork relating to it knowing one day i would want to try and find her again.

RB30 engine swap

Hi everyone, it's been a long time since last posted, but just letting anyone who is interested, I have a complete RB30 Nissan motor and auto box for sale. Now I know there are some people out there who are against putting later model engines into old cars, but that's what this hobby is all about, doing what you want with your car, so I'm offering it here to any Old Holden members who may be interested doing this swap to there car. The Nissan is complete at the moment and you can have all the parts needed, so motor, tranny, wiring computers, exhaust, if it's fitted or needed to make the engine work it goes with it, the engine runs fine, and the price for it all is $500.

what does this mean

Model ht81169
Body 44a
Trim 1276-14t
Paint 567-10974
Top 568-11401

Bedford wheels

Hi all, new boy here. I have had a string of CF & CFL Bedfords but only have bits and pieces left. I am trying to get a handle on the value of some wheels which need a new home, I have tried many searches but came up with nothing. So if any one knows or has heard of recent sales I would appreciate it. They are as follows, set of four Bedford pattern 14"x7" Jelly Bean mags, three Bedford original steel hard shell rims one has the brake drum still in it with original wheel nuts and a couple of HQ 14"x7" mags. Condition "need a good polish" all have old rubber on them. Thanks

Cylinders not fiering

Hello everyone.

6 and 5 wont fire and I can smell gas. I am running dedicated gas.

SPARK: Good
PLUGS: Good
LEADS: Good
DIZZY: Rotor on number 1 at TDC (Pulled in and out a few times to get correct position)
HOLDENPEDIA: Tried a few things under the heading of Dizzy but still dead in 5 and 6
MANIFOLD GASKET: On correctly
INLET MANIFOLD: I'm almost sure there isn't a rag stuck in there from assembly LOL

Can smell gas. I'm guessing its not getting burnt in 5 and 6 and is coming out the exhaust, all other connections look secure.

Any advice and ideas appreciated guys, thanks.
