hz dashboard

restoring an HZ tonner. dash set out: there are some blank holes in mine which I want to fill with the correct bits.
1/ the cluster of warning/indication lights... the coloured plastic has crumbled away leaving holes. Working from top left and going clockwise the lights are:
left indicator (green)... high beam (blue)... right indicator(green)... something (red)... Brake (red)... not used (red)... not used (red)... something (red)... something (red)...

Does anyone know what was written on these red indicator lights?
Can anyone tell me what the spare ones were used for? ie gts models, or monaro models and what they indicated.

A couple of problems

I'm hoping for a little advice. First I've got duel fuel. Twice now when running on gas the car has just stopped, full tank, first time running cool second time pretty warm. It won't start up again on the gas so I switch it over to petrol, turn it over a few times and its runs fine on petrol.
However, then try and start it on petrol the next day, no go. It seems like there's no fuel getting to the carbie? Then I switch it to gas, it starts and I drive around all day waiting for it to die in the middle of traffic.

It is Anti-SPAM time !

Hi gang,
You probably have not seen this simple little trick.

SPAM is a bit of a problem when you post your email anywhere on the web. What spammers are doing generally is using what is called a "robot" to automatically search and record email addresses. A robot/bot/spambot is just like a human websurfing but faster and automatic....however as as computer does, it can only do certain things. One thing it can do is search and manipulate text like in an email address, one thing it can not do is search for a picture of an email address or read the contents of an email address. But we humans can :) so if you use the new box at the bottom of "comments" as you post, your email will be shown in a little picture. Spammers grab emails automatically, they do not employ people to type addresses (which is what they would have to do) in as this would be way too slow and COSTLY.

Which Looks Better - VL Calais Rims or Chrome Rims?

I need some opinions here. I currently have some 14 inch Chrome Rims (nothin flash, just about 20 odd holes in the outer part of the rim with a protruding chrome center cap) on my Red 87 VL, but am thinking about buying some 15 inch VL Calais Rims to put on it instead.

Which do you think would look better? I would buy some awesome mags for it if the budget allowed but it doesn't. Ur comments would be much appreciated.

TICKING IN THE ENGINE

Hi all,

This question seems like it could be a bit "it could be any thing" question but here goes.

Ok, I have a 202 and when I shes running you can hear a strange ticking noise- when give her some accelerater it gets faster.

Basically, if any 1 has any idea, is this bad or could it be the fan belt loose or something?

Please reply for whatever the reason is.

Cheers,

Nuggy

Can anyone help? - "New" Owner of VH Commodore

Hi Everyone,

Can anyone help? I have a VH Commodore (SL?) and I had a "quirk" that when I used the brake my left turn signal would stop working sometimes (how do I fix That?) but now anytime I turn the car over neither turn signal works but they will work with the engine off (on "Accessories") and the cigerette lighter won't work anymore (in case it is related).

I don't know much about service and repair of cars (it's my first car) so if you could help me out I would very much appreciate it.

Vacuum Gauge & Hot Starts

Your time starts now,

Hello, I have a Vacuum gauge in my VH commie 202, and as I am aware that they can tell you some info about how well your cars running at the time. I would like any imput from you experts as in how to read them correctly, I think mine is running a little strange. Thank-you

I also have just put this particular engine into my car (VH 202) and one strange thing I have noticed is that she dosen't like the hot hot starts, It cranks very slowly indeed. It's only if I leave her for about 15 minutes, then I get all scared. On the needle she runs like a commie, cold as ice.

dellorto

HEY POIDA!
I just read what you'd said about holley 350's and webers, do you know much about dellorto's? I've got a 40mm 2 barrell side draught on a 202 (it came in the car I bought). It also seems to be over fuelling the engine, if you've got any tips it'd be great.
