GEN light on dash

Hey Team
I have a 73 HQ and yesterday after switching her off then trying to start again there was nothing. Not even trying to crank over. The only light on is the GEN one in the dash! Any similar faults?

Park Pawl advice needed for HJ Trimatic transmission

Hi I need advice on my park pawl.
It's a HJ 253, Trimatic.
I have previously removed and reinstalled the extension housing and since then have not been able to get it to engage into Park. Prior to this extension housing reinstall the transmission worked fine.

Forums suggest the Park pawl is the issue.

With both rear wheels jacked up i can rotate the tailshaft and get the park pawl to lock... but after driving it however, it will not shift into park.

Have tried to adjust selector to be in the optimal position.

HT 253 GEARBOX

My question is a simple one. Does anyone here know where I can get a manual gearbox for my HT 253? I am sick of looking at her sitting there minus a gearbox.

Sick of trawling e-bay and other sites and not getting anywhere.

Ta.

rebuilding m21 gearbox

PUTTING A KIT THROUGH MY M21 GEARBOX .
QUESTION , WAS TOLD THE OPEN BEARINGS ARE BETTER THAN THE SEALED ONES
AS THE OIL IN THE BOX LUBRICATES THE OPEN BEARINGS

ANYONE DONE A REBUILD LATELY ON A M21

MAYBE ALSO THIS THE REASON THE SEALED BEARING KITS ARE CHEAPER

Putting A/C into an HZ ute

I'm considering buying an HZ ute without AC, however I would like to install AC without molesting the ute. The choices are find a complete unit from anything up to a WB, get a modern compressor and and install, or go for something after market (I prefer no knee freezer).

Does anyone have experience in this area and I would be grateful for any suggestions. I don't have time, tools or experience to fit myself so would be after someone to do it for me.

Thanks
