Temp Gauge

just wondering how many people are running temp gauges in their old Holden - the models that never had one just the temp light ? On many models (prior to EH) the temp lamp did not have a test or the test eg on start (eg HR) no longer works - so how confident are people that the temp light will come on when required and/or be reliable? Will installing a gauge impact on historical registration - very few mods are allowed in SA - where do people usually put them in their cars if they want it to be useful yet discreet?

Temp Light

decided to take the HR for a run today through hills. It was about 35 degrees. Checked coolant before heading off. Car ran well - considering it's the original 50 year old engine having never been reconditioned or head removed. On way home after about 3 hours I took her up to about 65-70 - whereas she normally feels content about 55. After sometime the temp light came on - so slowly pulled to the side and was prepared to turn engine off an let cool down - but the light went off - so dropped back to 55 and never came on again all way home.

HR Flasher Unit

The indicators on my HR started acting erratically - when the flasher unit was warm. Pulled out the unit - original GMH unit 50 years old. Got ab replacement from Sprints auto for $5.95. I wonder if that will last another 50 years when the car is 100 years old?

Anyone know of someone who does reconditioned Holden 202's ready to go for a fair price? Similar to a crate motor?
Down in Tasmania rebuilds seem expensive so just putting it out there getting one freighted down.

Thanks in advance.

Radio interference

Fitting a radio to HR and having problems with engine interference.
The set is AM. And FM
No problems at all with the FM
AM works fine without the motor running but no good when it is running.
The ignition coil has a condenser fitted to the + side which I think was fitted as standard.
Their is no condenser fitted to the Bosch alternator or voltage regulator?
The Hight tension leads are silicon and in very good condition .
As the car is 50 years old could the condensor fitted to the ignition coil need to be replaced?

Idle shudder

Morning guys,

Slight shudder occasionally at idle from gearbox area and when taking off at low revs but seems to go once revs are up. I am a novice but presume there would be gearbox mounts? It's a HR sedan with an Aussie 4 speed in it.
Engine mounts and gearbox mounts both might cause this?
Regards

HR Ute

I have a HR ute project car and I like the HR Premier colour Regal Maroon. I just can't make up my mind what colour to do the interior.
It's not going to original but it will be an eye catcher.
Does anyone know of a site where you can change interiors and exterior to see what different colours would look like together.

Does the idle mixture screw on a HQ stromberg only affect idle mixture or running mixture as well?

186S for HR

I bought Henry the HR a present on the weekend for his
50th birthday year. A replacement 186S engine from 1968.

Henry's 186S engine has been bored out to 0.06 and I get
conflicting advice on whether 186S engines can be bored
out to 0.08 inch or if its too close to water jackets?

Any comments on if you have to sleeve a red engine after
it gets past 0.06 inch oversize?

Handbrake

Just adjusted the rear drum brakes of the HR to just off touching. I'm now having trouble adjusting the hand brake. Is the only adjustment that at the mechanism where the handbrake handle cable and the rear cable meet drivers side? If I tension the cable up enough for the handbrake to work then the drums rub with the hand brake disengaged. If I let the handbrake cable off enough for the drums not to rub then I have no handbrake at all.

Thanks in advance guys!
