Thermo fans

Hi guys, am new here. I need some advice on what size thermo fan or fans I need for my eh. It has a Holden v8 383 cube. They will have to go in front of the radiator as there isn't a lot of room on engine side. Thanks

Factory 304 rocker arm ratio

Hi, just trying to find out what would be the best roller rocker arm ratio would be best for a mild 304. I guess I need to start with finding out what the standard rocker ratio is first, so if someone could guide me in the correct direction to find out I can then decide what to go for. having said all that 1.65 seems the most common for aftermarket rockers, any comments would be appreciated.
Thanks Mal

Fraud Vl.

Just Bought a Vl with t350 gearbox - speedometer cable was disconnected and has to be held into place with a zip tie . - now connected The tachometer is out by 30km to fast - do I need to calibrate or make sure the cable which goes to the speedo is the correct one ?

Was going to buy new cable off eBay and buy a new whole tacho cluster as some gauges do not work or lights .

Trans seems to sit too high, HQ coupe

Hi guys, I've bolted a 308 and t350 through salsbury from a HJ 4 door into my HQ coupe, using a new trans crossmember (ordered for coupe, 308, th350) from Rod Shop. I'm not sure if I've done something wrong, but the trans output is sitting very high, which leads to tailshaft contacting the tunnel.....
is there an obvious solution or a common fault I'm possibly making??

WB Statesman Side Mouldings

I want to "restore" the faded side mouldings on my WB Caprice. The car is silver and the side mouldings in certain light/angle are looking pale and whitish. See the pic (not the best). Anyway I was just going to clean and respray but I'd like to confirm if someone can that they would have been originally the same colour as the car? Or would they have been different. I had a white one years ago and they were white so it didnt matter.

WB Statesman Ventilation

Hi guys I've got a WB that is blowing air through the HVAC to foot as well as face when set to face only resulting in poor air pressure. Many years ago (about 17) I fixed a similar issue with a WB I had at the time but it's been too long to remember specific details. I do recall replacing one or more vacuum actuators (pods). I also recall there being 2 sizes of pods and it being a bit of a PIA to replace - not difficult but time consuming. Has anyone done this recently and if so was the pod size to activate face level air a large or small actuator (pod)?

How do I remove chrome tail light bezel

Hi Guy
Removing the chrome trim on hx van rear tail light surround for body work. I have the two screws out and I can see the pins on the inside. These look to be simply pushed in and should lever/tap out. Is that right? Don't want to snap off of course. I removed some 25yrs ago but there were millions of them around then.

Wb ute fuel cap

Hi all.

I'm in the process of going right through my fuel system and replacing all the rubber hoses.

While cleaning the fuel tank out I found a handful of components that look like they may have come from a fuel cap.

The cap I'm currently running is very basic with just a simple rubber seal and a very small breathing hole, but that breathing hole tends to leak fuel when I have a full tank and I'll turn around corners on winding roads.

Fuel sender repairs

Hi all.

I'm in the process of repairing a leaking fuel sender.
It was leaking from the soldierd joint so that's been re soldered. I was lucky enough to be able to remove and reuse the original press on clip that holds the sender wire post in place. Unfortunately now it's leaking from the rubber seal that's seals the fuel sender Post.
