First drive

Hi guys it looks like all my leaks are now fixed. I have read that a weep can still exist a few days after its fixed. So im getting ready for its first drive and i was looking for advice on possibly monitoring oil level and water temperature while driving. Just as a precaution so i can detect possible problems before they become serious. I have standard hg belmont gauges which are just warning lights for temp oil and generator. Would this be sufficient. Is it safe to say if the lights do not come on then its safe and all good or are these gauges to slow to pick up problems quickly enough.

Celica gear box Fitted to a HG

Hi,
Have just brought a HG panel van with a celica steel case gearbox, but on close examination have found that the floor strengthening support has been cut away to fit it.
I have chased down a new support frame and gear box hump to weld in and replace the original.

As I would still like to use a Celica box and found that there a number of gear lever exit positions from the gear box.

Is there a Celia gear box with the gear lever far enough forward that I do not have to cut the frame again or is there a way of modifying the frame to accept mine or both.

Oil leak

Hi guys trying to source a slow oil leak (1 drop ever 6 seconds or so) that appears to be coming from rear main. I can see oil marks on front of inspection cover but not on the back of the engine block. I thought rear mains leak down the back of the engine block. Anyway leak is very dark almost black but oil in sump is clean as a whistle, no sign of contaminants. Any ideas? Im stumped by this leak especially why its so different in colour to the rest of the oil. This is a newly rebuilt motor not even a km on it yet. Any help would be great. Thanks

Distributor timing

Hi all, i have been tuning my timing and im curious about vacuum advance. The dizzy is regraphed and designed to run at 8-10 degrees advance at idle and thats where i have set it. I disconnected the vacuum advance before starting and proceded to balance the timing and idle to read 9 degrees at 650rpm and it idled nicely. So i turned it off, reconnected the vacuum advance to the timed spark port and when it started up again it wasnt idling as nice. I was told that i would then have to readjust again after vacuum advance was connected.

Hg holden demister

I was wondering, seeings as engine bay air is always warm would it work as a demister. In my hg holden there is a warm air heating element in the under dash ducting, seperate from the heater box/ core. Now what im thinking is if i remove the heater box but leave the ducting that creates an area for hot engine bay air to escape and i thought i could use that as a sort of demister. It is a ute and could probably be heated by a candle. My theory is that cold air enters the engine bay in the usual way and instead of it heating up and staying there.

186 BATTERY ISSUES

My HG kingswood has gone through 2 batteries in the last few months, the first one sent acid through the engine bay and now the second one is bubbling out acid from the top. Just wondering if anyone knows what the cause of the issue could be. Also the starter motor died and was replaced with a unit from a HJ 202, unsure if related but the issues have occurred since then.

Steering column alignment

I have rebuilt the steering box (using a eare spares rebuild kit) and have taken the column out to clean and inspect (it was making a slight grinding sound) so it got cleaned and lubed. I put it back in but the column no longer sits straight in the housing. It is off to one side and rubs against my gear selectors (three on the tree) and when the steering wheel is it certain positions i cant change gear because of the rubbing. I have tried adjusting the mounting plate but it doesnt seem to move much. Is there something im missing or not doing? Any help would be great.

Door material

G'day All,
Just wondering what the best adhesive is to use to stick the material back onto the inside of a door, as in behind the door trim, the material covering the window and door lock mechanism holes.
I hope that makes some sense.
Cheers
Al

I'm back

Gday OH'ers

My old account was Perth Mick, Rusty help me get it back and i've changed it to Perth Neil as i don't really go by Mick anymore.

Anyway I'm in the process of looking for a HK HT HG 4 door. End goal is a good solid car with a 308 or later on 355.

I've found a hg Kingswood. I did the PPSR search but it came back with no vehicle info under NEVDIS (never heard of it before anyway)
