HX

Problem with hx 202 cooling system.

Hey everyone, I recently bought a new thermostat housing for my hx kinswood because the old one had a crack in it and the engine was overheating. While I was putting the new one one I noticed on the right side of the engine bay there was a small, right angle shaped tube thing with a cable coming out of it that went into the firewall, zip tied to another pipe and i think it has something to do with the cooling system but its not connected to anything. It might be contributing to the overheating? I'm not sure what it is. Dose anyone know what it is?

More HEI issues..

Hi Guys,

Recently converted the old 202 with a HEI dizzy.

Had some issues with it not kicking over and had a sparky at work check over things. Yup the old ballast resistor issues.
Have gone and installed a relay switch.
When I turn the key to acc, the switch kicks in and I'm getting 12.8v to the coil, but when I kick her over to run, the volts drop to 11. Have gone over the holdenpedia and thread a few times, double checked my wiring and all seems good.

Any thoughts as to why the drop at run? I thought the switch bypassed the issue?
