Temp switch answered

Recently wanted to know about temp switch, red six EH on. Correct one to use, if it should screw all the way home (if below thermostat) and the supposed myth of dash warning light coming on when cranked? Found my answers on fb, and the myth proven fact. See pics, cheers all. ps Dr Terry is still God πŸ˜‰

faulty blinkers/parkers front only

hi I have an EH, when I put either indicator on they both flash (front only)and sometimes both the indicators in the dash will flash, also when I turn the parkers on both the indicator lights will come on in dash ,the only thing ive done to try and fix this problem was to change the wiring and light fittings in the front. Has anyone had a simular problem and what was done to solve the problem ?Any help will be well apreciated

EH Coolant Sensor for dash light

What to do next? Was sold a Fuelmiser CTS123 as being correct for EH179, didn't work, turns out meant for guage. Downloaded catalogue to check and bought a Fuelmiser CTS124 meant for dash light. Wouldn't screw all the way in (below thermostat) but didn't leak, didn't work anyway because light not coming on when turn the key (checked light by earthing and it does work). Called Fuelmiser today and was told info correct but catalogue now obsolete and only oil sender being sold now for EH 2.9litre. Both senders still being made however no longer listed as suitable?

EH radiator conversion

Have posted about my EH having overheating probs, when stationary or under load. Have done everything that was suggested, head coming off next week, to be crack tested, although there has been no indication of water and oil mixing, and cleaning/flushing water jacket. Fitting a HQ V8 radiator has also been suggested, what needs to be done to fit same, I would imagine dimensions would be different, presently running STD 202 with trimatic

What sort of cost for a resto on a fairly good classic holden?

If I was to Take an eh for example only, in a fairly clean condition to have it fully done by professionals? what do you rekon it would cost, just a rough figure. My Old Uncle asked me to build his eh I told him the truth that it could cost upto 25k he said I was going to rip him off? I offered to do it free no labour but it would still cost that much for parts paint and trim. thanks ahead. cheers.

EH crasg box wanted

A mate is after a crash box from an early 149 EH (EJ bellhousing bolt pattern) or later EH-HK box with bellhousing.
He has to recondition a box for a customer's EH so any gearbox with good gears and selectors would be OK. Second gear in the customer's gearbox is past it, and possibly the selector.
Possibly an EJ box even so he could build one from the two.
Preferably reasonably close to Port Macquarie, NSW but anything considered.
Phone David (not me) on (02)6559 9167 during business hours.

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.

EH generator wanted

Does anyone have an EH generator for sale? A bloke asked Nathan if he knew where he could get one.
I suggested an alternator conversion but apparently the bloke wants to keep his EH original.
