GPS speedo accuracy

I have a GPS map thing called a Navman. It shows current speed. I have now bought a HUD thing that projects current speed onto the windscreen. A test with both running side by side showed 80kph on the HUD, and 75kph on the Navman. I thought that all these GPS gadgets were spot on. Has my faith been misplaced?

202 carb for Hg

My Hg has a red 202, so I guess a 202 carb would be better than the 161 carb and manifold that I currently have fitted. Will a 202 carb connect to standard HG accelerator linkage?

I have just completed a full rebuild from a bare shell on my HG van. I have done a total of 18 miles since getting rego, and blown the low beam in three standard sealed beam head lights on the left side. Charge rate is 14.1 Volts, and the earth from light to body is ok.
Any suggestions will be appreciated

G'day guys long time no see!

Hi guys for any that remember me my names chris, I sold my beloved injected hg almost 10 years ago. Time has flown by, always regretted it and always missed it. I've got a young family now and am looking for a new project. Moneys tight, but I'm a relatively skilled builder. Thinking about a lj torana coupe, or maybe a hq sedan. Dunno, waiting for a good basket case to rear its head for me to get stuck into. I'll find something one day, hopefully sooner than later.

crossmembers

hi people.
I am after advice on crossmember for toyota 5 speed into HG
HG ute, 186, aussie 4sp.
I have a steel toyota 5 spd (W50? are they called ?)
Is a standard cross member easily modified for this?
I may have seen adds for an auto cross member and one already to suit a supra 5 speed.
Any of those likely to be a better bet bet than the others?
whats the chances the supra one will work for my steel box?

Gearbox experts needed

Where are the real gearbox builders? Some months ago I put a kit into my Aussie 4 speed, and noted that the old front bearing had a seal on the side facing into the box, and no seal on the side facing the bearing retainer. This seemed wrong to me, but as I am not a mechanic, I sought advice on this forum, and received a range of conflicting opinions. In frustration I installed the new front bearing (which came with seals on both sides) in the same manner as the old bearing that I had removed.

rebuilding fuel pump

Hi people.
I am overhauling my glass bowl fuel pump on 186 HG.
I have a kit and have read the holdenpaedia page. http://holdenpaedia....
can someone please tell me if the thread tape for the bolts and fuel line is just plumbing tape or something special.
should there be some kind of loctite on the bolts?
should there be gasket sealer on the main mounting to the block?
thanks

HQ brake caliper on HG

I have fitted HQ discs to my HG, and removed the appropriate valve from the master cylinder. The photo here was taken prior to rebuilding the calipers. They have been installed with the bleed screws at the top.Question is, what is the correct procedure for tightening the bolt that secures the sliding mechanism? Do you screw them down firmly? I have found that tightening them down, despite having lubed all contact surfaces, results in the brakes remaining locked on after application. I do not have any service manual for this caliper as i have only purchased KTG manuals.

304 into Hg seeking links or other info

I am looking for info on fitting a 304 to a HG. Am I correct in assuming that this would be a more straight swap than an LS1?
