Need to get out.

The Holden is starting to look like I feel from not doing anything. Al would understand.
I went into work for 5 hours this afternoon for our Xmas lunch and to learn the new computer system. (the free feed was the main attraction).
I just stood around and sat at the computer, but I felt it by the time I got a lift back home.
Getting a bit better every day.

starter motor issue

just would like to know what would cause a starter motor to not stop working even when the ignition is off and I had to disconnect the battery to stop it from operating...
is that a solanoid issue? if I put another solanoid on it will that fix that or is the starter motor kaput?
cheers
Grant

73 HQ Ute and cooling systems ??

So lets start with what I have and where I am,,,

Bel is a 73 HQ Ute Belmont, running a Chevy 383 with a TH 700 R4 transmission. Now to make things fun both me and Bel are located State Side ( U.S.A.)

So my question is what do you all use to help keep the TH 700 running cool ??

I have a transmission cooler in the radiator pushing to a Transmission cooler from PAC TEN ( who built my transmission )but I could not mount the electric transmission cooling fan.

Also besides Resto Country who else do you use use finding parts ????

Power steering issue. VB commodore.

Hi there,

I’ve got a newly rebuilt power steering pump and rack in the vb. Hoses correctly connected and sound in the pump is full.

I start it up on stands to properly bleed the fluid through and as soon as I touch the steering g wheel, it violently spins to the left and wants to keep going.

Any ideas? The builder isn’t on the weekend and just wanting to check if I’m doing something stupid first.

hz rear screen lower clips

gday boys,

does anyone know where I can get new rear windscreen lower edge clips/brackets (see pics).

what I need are NOT the type of clip that fit into the lugs for the front screen (and the top of the rear screen), rather the ones that slide into along the lower stainless mould then screw in. 8 are needed.

ta.

Hospital again tomorrow.

I'm going in for green light prostate surgery tomorrow. It's not a big worry. They just shove a laser where things shouldn't be shoved and vaporise your insides. What is there to worry about, apart from eating hospital food for three days.

Holden EH Nasco / VDO clock gauge

Hi All,
I have an issue wiring the EH Nasco Clock into my EH and was hoping for some help and or advice. I have a copy of the Nasco instructions, thanks to another member. The instructions say to remove the Lamp Globes from the harness, which means I will have a pink wire and a coloured wire for each instrument.
I then connect the coloured wires to the instruments..but what do I do with the pink wires?
