hz petrol tank sender installation

gday all,

can any of you boys pls advise if there's any tips-and-tricks
with installing me new (ie. reconditioned) petrol tank sender?

i'm using the same o-ring coz the one i got with the reco
job was too thin and wouldnt seal. i'm just gonna turn it
upside down.

i tried getting a new, nitrile o-ring from cbc bearings but none of them were thick enough. i tried 4 different sizes..

someone told me to apply a liddle bit of silcone sealer,
then fit the retainer locking washer/ring.

any ideas boys?

bij.

HZ fuel line

Hi, I bough my HZ panel van about two months ago. It is log only with the petrol tank, lines and filled removed. I'm removing the log as it needs replacing. I'm trying to find info on the fuel line from the tank. I have looked on the net and in manuals. Does anyone have a diagram of where the line goes and what size? Thanks. Ric

Front Brakes(LHS and RHS) of HZ '78 Sedan Locked On

Hi Everyone, I've got a '78 HZ sedan with a 202 trimatic. When I pressed the brake I found that both the LHS and RHS brakes locked on. The only way they would release was when I released the pressure via the bleed screw. Thought it was the clearance between the booster and the master cylinder. No. Then I thought it was a blockage in the brake master cylinder. No. Then I thought it was the pistons stuck in the front brake calipers. No. I then pulled apart the proportioning value and found it was completed blocked up with gunk, had a torn o-ring and seized up.

wheel well drain holes

gday all,

can any of you boys pls tell whether the the holes
in the lower boot wheel wells, on a hz sedan, should be plugged/sealed?

...because my lhs is unplugged but the rhs isnt..?

so, are they in fact meant to be drain holes, and should they both
be plugged or not?

if they're not drain holes, then what are they for?

pls see pics attaced.

thanks.

3 speed floor shift reverse

Hi Guys
I have bought a panno with 3sp on floor but no reverse light switch. I know which wires are supposed to be connected but there doesn't appear to be a switch. Anyone tell me where and what part number these are supposed to be on these so I can get it roadworthy please. It's a 202 so I would think Aussie 3sp box, in a HX.

What's this number mean?

Hi
OK, so on the HZ and WB I have there is a 4 digit code on the bottom of the A Pillar below and forward of the bottom door hinge. It is fairly small, stamped and is LETTER, NUMBER, LETTER, NUMBER. I can find bucket loads of VIN info but no mention of this. And it doesn't correspond to any numbers on ANY of the firewall build plates. Can't find it in Holdenpedia....
Any thoughts guys?
THanks

Information ref HZ cassette player

Can any one provide info on where the cassette player as an option was fitted to the HZ GTS.

IN the Brochures I have the radio is a white needle in both the Premier and the GTS I'm wondering if like the HX LE Coupe if this optioned was requested was the centre console exchanged for one similar to the coupe and the Statesman Caprice so that the cassette player would be fitted into the space that this console was used for in those models

Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated bearing in mine that I only want restore my car to factory specs/authorised options

Apologies if this has been addressed before.

HZ / HX One tonner ute, I am looking to take off the tray and replace it with a tub. Can it be done? I'm assuming so with a little bit of engineering here and there.

Thanks.
