Commadore vt 6 cylinder

Hi, people,
I have a Commodore that is causing me a load of trouble since I bought. It overheats all the time. I have had the engine checked, I have had a new thermostat installed, new hoses, had it bled, and yet it is still overheating. I got stuck in traffic because of, and when it overheats like to the absolute hot level the fan won't turn off. I have had it at the Mechanics three times and now it's going back in morning, but I am starting to dought him now. Can someone please tell me what is wrong with it????????

Thanks, Karlsie.

She's finally home

Evening all. Just thought I'd share a couple of pics of mine and my girlfriends new toy. As you all can see, she needs alot of work to get back on the road. But we're both up for the challenge. She's a 1967 HR Special with factory 186 and 2 speed powerglide. Drums all round. Only question i have at the moment is what's involved in changing to disc brake front. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers ray

HT Wagon Seat Belts

G'day,
I am about to fit Lap sash ( non retractable) belts to my HT wagon. I was hoping someone who has done this might ba able to offer up some tips or even photo's if possible. I have removed the back seat to find 2 captive nuts. Not sure if they were meant for belts or not but my main concern is the pillar. any advice would be greatly appreciated

Tired 186

The 186 in our EH is getting very tired. It rattles and spits oil out the breather cap (small breather instead of PCV as well as breather cap).
Driven hard at something like a lap dash or khanacross or just having a fang it goes all day without a problem.
On the highway at a constant 2800rpm (100-110ks) it will randomly lose power and not want to rev at all, it just maintains it's 2800rpm and no more. Pull over, turn it off, start it and it will take off as if it never had a problem until it plays up again, maybe in 20 minutes, maybe not for a couple of days.

crossmembers

hi people.
I am after advice on crossmember for toyota 5 speed into HG
HG ute, 186, aussie 4sp.
I have a steel toyota 5 spd (W50? are they called ?)
Is a standard cross member easily modified for this?
I may have seen adds for an auto cross member and one already to suit a supra 5 speed.
Any of those likely to be a better bet bet than the others?
whats the chances the supra one will work for my steel box?

1968 Holden HR ute Airforce car

So recently I've been given a 1968 Holden HR ute that belonged to my uncle and has been and his dads/ my grandfathers farm, I'm currently taking it up as a project car since I've fallen in love with it, after talking to my grandfather about the cars history mainly of his experiences driving it and the many pigs he use to transport in the tub he told me how the ute once belonged to the airforce and apparently used to transport the pilots around.

rebuilding fuel pump

Hi people.
I am overhauling my glass bowl fuel pump on 186 HG.
I have a kit and have read the holdenpaedia page. http://holdenpaedia....
can someone please tell me if the thread tape for the bolts and fuel line is just plumbing tape or something special.
should there be some kind of loctite on the bolts?
should there be gasket sealer on the main mounting to the block?
thanks
