Fan blower motor bearing repair

Hi all

I have a HJ Caprice 1976. It's the "stronger" 4-speed fan used for the factory aircon. As per usual, the heater / A/C fan motor is squawky and generally noisy. I've purchased another used one at not an insignificant price and, despite the seller (and I) testing it before mounting where it appeared to be OK, it too is noisy - probably worse.

Electric fuel pump into hj

Hi, does anyone know the best way to modify a fuel tank for a hj sedan to run an electric fuel pump or the best way to set them up?
Ive read alot of forums and dr terry on here gave a solution with putting in a tank out of a vp/vr commy and get spout welded in, but that was 6yrs ago.
Theres also a place over east that can modify an original tank for 600.
Cheers in advance

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?
