Carby Solenoid??

Gday,
I changed motors in my HZ recently,
the donor was manual, its now in an auto. The auto motor had a solenoid hooked up to the accelerator which I read is for cars with air conditioning or automatic trannys. I figure the solenoid compensates for the extra load from the air con, but I'm stumped as to why you need it on an auto. Can anyone out there fill me in?
Thanks heaps... Dave'

VK Black EFI into a BEDFORD CF Van --HELP--

( soon to be-- BEDFORDBLOKE )

Hi all, I only just found this Tidy little page and forum, Great spot...

Here is the go,
I am replacing my ( very tired and lacking power ) Red 186 + trimatic with a recently rebult 3.3L EFI Black motor of the VK Flavour, Including its Trimatic...
Into my CF Bedford van ( all Holden Running Gear, We need a Topic/Section for Bedfords Please )
This SHOULD be a strait Bolt in job, Including the F/Tank, F/Pump, and computer + harness of course.
What is going to stump me is the wiring up of the EFI and the F/Pump into a very simple old ignition setup that is on the Bedford at the moment.
Also I think I have the setup for the F/Tank sorted with Fuel Line and the Return and the pollution stuff that may not make the transfer however any helpfull knowlage would be Real cool...

So what I am asking here is can any one help me out on the wiring setup ( I have heard it is only 7-8 wires )including if the F/Pump can bee hooked up to the Ignition or has it got a cutout it must hook up to.

My Manual does not have a Full wiring diagram so it is real hard for me to work it out

Let me know how I should go about this little Job, I can post a Phone or Email contact up later as well.
Thanks alot,

Here now is a list of some parts I have for sale, Some FREE

VK Berlina, Minus Engine,Gearbox,Tank, Aircon.

Bedford CF Van SWB, 186 YellaTerra HC Head, Good Big Carby, trimatic,extra doors and parts as well, Needs a few things but a bargin at $600

Two Long Red motors, 173 HP ( I think hp ) and a 171, complete engines were running when pulled out of cars.

Some of this stuff I will deliver'

Rear end brakes with HR disc brakes

Im having troubles with my rear brakes locking up on my FE. I am running a HR disc brake front end (with booster) and a drum rear end from a HR that had drums all round.

Someonesaid that they thought the rear brakes from a disc brake car where different to those of a drums all round car.

Can anyone confirm and give me details? Is there a mod I can do to my current rear setup to suit a disc front end? '
