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)

161 HG ENGINE

I am looking for the original engine from my HG Panel Van. It was removed form my Van in 1980 and was later that year fitted to a HR Panel Van with the rego number JTR 325. I have a copy of the original Victorian rego card for my Van showing the rego number of KST 093, Chassis Number HG 00013A and Engine Number 161H322145. I also have a pic of the rego card for the HR Van showing when my engine was fitted to it.
If you or anyone you know have a HR Van that previously had that rego number (the rego number is no longer in use)check your engine number? Please.......

Bigger clutch in red 6 HG

I have a 186, and bought an aussie 4 speed to fit to it. The 4 speed came with a flywheel, clutch disc, and pressure plate

I installed my old flywheel that has always been on my 186, and then found that the pressure plate was larger than my original. The clutch disc was also of larger diameter.

I decided that the significantly larger clutch surface area might be a good thing, so I then installed the flywheel that came with the 4 speed, along with the matching clutch gear.

Engine mounts on a HG red 6

Re the rubber engine mounts in a Hg red 6.
Do the safety retaining tabs go toward the block, or do they face out towards the guards/?
