Free wheeling when jacked up and in gear

When an old Holden with a manual transmission has its rear jacked up and is started and put into gear should both wheels spin? I tried this tonight and the left wheel slowly spins but the right one doesnt move and spins slowly when given a shove?

Spark Plugs

What's everyone's choice of spark plugs in a red 202 with HEI distributor? I've recently installed one and wasn't sure if the NGK plugs for a standard 202 will still be suitable with the electronic distributor upgrade?

Thanks in advance

After opinion on rear drum brakes. Gave them a look over and noticed that the auto tensioners on both sides are not working. Is there a whole replacement kit that anyone can recommend to replace whole drum assembly and shoes? I have discs on the front but want to replace rears for safety as hand brake is on limit as far as tensioning them up.

Vacuum advance

Morning guys,

Been reading a little about vaccum advance which may help me solve my carb problem of hesitation at revs. My advance on the electronic distributor is cone yes to the manifold tap along with the brake booster (manifold advance) whilst all the plugs on carb are all blocked off apart from the erg and canister taps on the carb are joined via a pipe.
Will swapping the vaccum advance on the distributor over to the carb (ported advance) help with the running of the car?

Thanks in advance guys!!

202 Carb problem

Engine stalled today and wouldn't start back up. Pouring fuel into it fires over but then it coughs and struggles to stay going then chokes out when accelerator is pumped. Also had problems starting in the cold so I'm thinking they are related. Visually nothing appears to be a problem and the fuel filter is new.
Should I overhaul the Carby or is there something I should look at first?

Thanks in advance

202 temp sensor removal

Having trouble removing the temp sensor bolt. The engine currently has no sensor but what looks like an adaptor with a small plug in it. I've bought a sensor and want to put it in but I'm having trouble removing the adaptor. It is behind the Carby passenger side of engine? The rocker cover seems to be stoping my socket from getting hold of it. Anyone else had this problem?

Windows

Having trouble with Sedan Windows. The bottom bracket which fits to the window is coming off all the pieces of glass. Is this a common problem? Is it the regulator or the bracket which hold the glass which is most likely at fault?

Washing engine bay

Wanting to give the engine bay a good clean and thought the car wash would be the best place to do so. Anyone have any preferred ways they do it? Anything in particular to cover and best to keep engine running or shut off?

Camping in the old HR

Image: 

Took my boys up to Moore River camping - thought I'd post the 50 year old car
which was full to the brim with tents, chairs, cooking equip and fishing rods.

Sat on 68 miles an hour (110km/h) - sweet 186S sound. Stopped off on way home
at the Gravity Discovery Centre but couldn't get Henry the HR to turn over. Saw
the battery terminal was a bit furry so cleaned the insides up by scratching it
with the spanner and away it went again.

As I was getting into Perth I noticed the Power glide wasn't gliding like it was.
When I got home and out of the car I noticed tranny fluid drips down the driveway
and a small puddle of oil.

So Idled the car and nothing happened - put it into Drive with hand brake on and
