Hg Holden heater/demister

Just took a hg kingswood over the pits and part of the list given back is having a demister that works and blows warm air. The demister used to be quite strong however never blew warm air and has since stopped working. It has a heater box in place however all of the hoses running to the engine are blanked off. Will simply connecting these provide warm air for the demister? How do I go about troubleshooting a demister that does not work?

HG 186 Trimatic to Manual

Hi All.
My HG Van now has the sub frames reattached and the front suspension will go back in next week.
It was last fitted with 186 trimatic but should be 161 and 3 on the tree. I have a 161 already but don't have a manual column and pedal box along with the clutch, gear linkages and 3 speed box.

No oil pressure!!

Hey guys can somebody please help me. Just freshly rebuilt my 192 (186) and I've primed everything as I've built it. I've gone to crank her over to start the initial break in process and my gauge doesn't even rise to the first small notch (gauge in picture) it gets about half way to the first notch when running and stays there. Can someone please help, cheers

cinnamon brown HG

My 2nd car was a cinnamon brown HG like this ($400 from an old lady in Taree) .
Mine didn't have the spats, unusual rear boot badge or the unusual colour coded boot either. I dont think that's factory but (I cant belive im saying this) That is a VERY nice car and I actually like the colour now (I called mine poo brown and hated it back in the day)

paddock bashing OH

I think most of us can relate to trying to kill an OH at some stage of our lives. My 2nd car (HG sedan)ended up on the farm as a paddock basher / roo & fox spotlighting vehicle for a few years before it was sold very cheaply as a demolition car and destroyed at the Newcastle speedway. (We never did kill the 186). The HK in the clip (link below) sure takes one hell of a pounding.

HG wiper arm removal

Hi all.
Would anyone know how I get the whole piece out that attaches to the wiper arm? I need to completely replace the whole thing as the previous owner has put 2 passenger side units on both sides. Do I need to pull the dash out? Thanks for any insight...
