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

EH Holden boot badge.

Hi,

Got my Eh Holden back from the paint shop and have noticed there are no holes for the Holden Letter badges on the boot.
Would anyone have a template for these little rectangle holes or the original fitting instructions and measurements if published by Holden at any stage.

Thanks in advance.

Fan belt pulley 186

Hi, I've just put a 186 motor into my Hd holden Station Wagon and am putting it back together. I've just tried to put a fan belt pulley from my 179 motor over the water pump but it is to small. Would anyone know what pully I might need for the motor/waterpump.

HG side flash

I'm pretty sure that the 48K price tag on this old girl is very optimistic but there is no doubt that the side flash is unusual. Ive seen other side flashes on HkTG's but not this flash? Anyone seen this flash before?
My very first car (HT) had a side flash. I towed that one to the tip though. Geeeze i was a d*%^&head when I was young.
