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.

Silvolite Pistons

Hi guys, does anyone here have any experience with or opinions on Silvolite brand pistons? I've noticed they are being sold in common overbore sizes for 186s on ebay as of late. Seller says "manufactured in America (Mexico) by Silvolite", I never knew Mexico was part of the USA, I wonder if The Donald knows?

HR wagon seat belt mount position

Hi all,

I'm working on a HR rebuild with my Dad (the original Old Holden guy ;)

We're putting three-point seat belts into the back seats, but we're not sure where to attach the top mount of the seat belts.

Has anyone put these belts into a HR (or similar model) wagon, and be willing to share advice or photos of how this was done?

Thanks very much all.

Cheers,
JB

removal of front inner guards and Y frame HG

Hi I'm Brian Oliver(Blue) I have a HG ute and at the moment I've removed the front guards engine, gearbox and front suspension, but now it's time to remove the inner guards and Y frame. I have 4 blots to remove that hold the Y frame to the chassis rails but althought I have undone the nuts and loosened the bolts they don't want to come out so I need help as I have to get to the inner fire wall for rust repair. If some one has this on you tube please let me know as I'm getting desperate. Thanks all.
