Front Clip question

The long and arduous process has started... Im piecing back together my fathers HR. Currently a stripped out shell with box's and Box's of parts...

I test fitted the front Clip over the weekend.. before painting and have a question Re-Alignment. If someone is able to depart some experience...

The outside dogleg at the bottom to the sill.. is there a spacer or any rubber suppose to go in between these 2 parts.. as even with the original bolts done up I was left with a gap of around 1mm on both sides

Any input would be much appreciated

Matt

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?

I’ve been away...but I’ve been busy

Been 16 years since I last raced. This ol’ girl spent most of that time in the shed at Mum and dads, bent. Straightened, rebuilt, resprayed. Now it’s the young bloke turn. Still running my tuff little 186.

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.
Mark
