Ht brougham dash

Hi guys,

I bought a 1969 HT brougham about 2 years ago. I’ve been doing research on it for a while. They’re pretty rare so getting info on them seems to be a bit hard. I think it might have some rare options as I can’t seem to find any pictures or info of cars that are the same. Maybe I’m looking in the wrong places.

It’s got cloth and vinyl bucket front seats with small headrests(perhaps they’re just high back) and a centre console. Also on the r/h side it’s got water temp and oil pressure gauges where there normally seems to be nothing on other cars.

Old Holden oil change. How often?

At the moment, my HT V8 is no longer a daily driver. I usually change it every 5000 Miles. But these days, fact is , its lucky to see 5000 miles in 2 years.
Question is should i change it at 5000 miles or maybe once a year? even though the mileage isnt up or more often? The oil is clear and im sure its still good but just wanted to know expert thoughts. For the record I use the penrite HPR 30 20w-60. The engine was rebuilt 3 years ago so it's nice and tight.
Your thoughts appreciated,
Alby

HT Power Steering Clearance

Hi All

Been a while...so long so my sign in doesn't seem to work.

I'm just reaching out to the you all to ask if anyone knows if HT V8's had a different sump between manual and power steering options? We have had power steering in our HT (out of a Brougham) for the last 15 years with all working well and all of a sudden we have been pulled up on the PS Ram touching the bottom of the sump. The only thing to have occurred to the car since it was put in is new engine mounts about 4 years ago which I would have thought if anything would have lifted the engine up?

Which Alternator HT v8?

took my alternator in to the auto electricians to replace. Apparently they don't just bolt in anymore. Mine is an old style with the pronged plastic pin at the top with an external regulator and will need some wiring done because the new ones only have an internal regulator. I don't know electric stuff but just wanted to know is the the best way these days? Apparently better and more reliable. They don't rebuild them anymore apparently
