HJ gauges not working

Hi all,

Recently the gauges in my HJ all stopped working (Fuel, Temp & Oil pressure).

They were all working, although not with any great accuracy, but suddenly stopped. Speedo and all the warning lights seem to work fine.

I have read here about the voltage regulators causing this type of thing on HZ, could this be the cause on a HJ and if so, how can I fix it ?

Thanks in advance.

Changing single leaking intake manifold bolts

I have recently changed my leaking 253 v8 intake manifold gasket (twice) using gasket sealant front and rear instead of cork but have since found a weaping leak which is not taking up after a couple of months. The leak is from a couple of the bolts which go into the water jacket.. and from memory the bolts had rust imperfections but i reused them in a hurry.

Can i swap out only the weaping bolts without taking the entire manifold off again?

T700 torque converter

Is the torque converter on all the T700's the same? I have an early (non-electronic) box and have found a torque converter from a later electronic box, and want to know if it will fit.

Rotary Engine Premier

Interesting read.
Mazda Roadpacer AP (Anti Pollution)
HJ and HX Holden Premier sedans that were exported to Japan and then had a 13B Wankel Rotary in the Mazda factory, then sold as a Mazda Roadpacer AP. They had 130hp, but very low torque, so poor acceleration and fuel consumption. Top speed was 166kph.

Cheers, Mick.

holden HQ-HZ Electric Tailgate

Hi all, i purchased a tailgate with an electric tailgate assembly and loom complete from a wreckers and installed into HJ wagon. gave it alot of TLC to clean it up and free the moving parts (not the motor) and i am having issues with the motor not having the power to either fully raise or fully lower the tailgate glass depending on how the tailgate spring is set, i cannot find any chat about this issue at all and am curious if anyones had the same problem of the motor not having the power to function properly? should i rewind/fix the motor?

Panelvans windows factory fitted option A09 FIXED REAR WINDOWS

Here are some Panel-van bodies on the move with windows cut out in factory to be assembled later . This is how all of them were done unless the customer was not prepared to wait for a van and wanted floor stock at a dealer , Then the dealer had a glacier fit them using factory windows and seals supplied by holden.
