WB front end

Got a wheel alignment the other week probably done about 100 ks since noticed when pulling up slowly then release of brake then a soft pedal push there's a sort of a clunk sound from the front and you can feel it through the brake pedal .... now what im asking is when the alignment was done if there's any loose bolts would this cause whats happening .

wb idler arm

Can someone give me the procedure to fit a wb idler arm ?

I've looked at youtube clips but all video show idler arm supports which are fixed not turned in or out.

I guess you turn the support bracket all the way in and then back it off 1 turn ?

Thanks for any help.

Removing 202 from WB

G'day Brainstrust
I'm about to remove the 202 from my WB tunna. My query is that the motor is connected to the aussie 4speed with the bench seat shifter, so is it necessary to remove the whole shifter assembly with linkages to get the engine out with box attached or can the shifter come through the trans tunnel hole with a bit of wriggling and jacking up the front of the car? Having never done this before with a aussie 4speed box a bit of sage advice would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers all
Al

WB fuel gauge.

Hello All.
Been a while since on here, due to work etc. But have a question, I have searched the pages but unable to find. So have a WB ute with WB statesman dash. Couple of questions. I used the statesman wiring loom and cut in cabin, wired rear light etc. Now would I connect the earth from fuel tank to earth into statesman dash. But I imagine the sender and gauge is not matched, what is the best way to get gauge to work with sender reasonably accurate, doesn't have to be perfect.

Thanks in advance.

Towing capabilities

G'day All

Just wondering what it takes for a 6cyl WB Tonner to tow 3.5t (apart from engine upgrade). Is it chassis strength, towbar rating? Do brakes have anything to do with it?

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers
Al
