HG wiper arm removal

Hi all.
Would anyone know how I get the whole piece out that attaches to the wiper arm? I need to completely replace the whole thing as the previous owner has put 2 passenger side units on both sides. Do I need to pull the dash out? Thanks for any insight...

Bench Seat Re-Trim

I bought a replacement cover for my HR front bench seat (just under a $1000 - ouch)...it's been sitting in a box in the spare room for too long.. Both the lower cushion and backrest. I was going to get a local trimmer to fit for me - quote was $200 but unfor he can't do it for quite a few months. I was thinking of having a go myself...thinking I just need some hog rings and pliers...has anyone fitted one before and if so any tips - how difficult is it? Any feedback appreciated..

What are the odds ?

Coming home from Brisbane today I saw a fairly tidy black s series just like the pic above valiant for sale in a paddock not far out of Brunswick heads. about 10 minutes later I passed another black s series on the back of a tilt tray heading North. I didnt see any holdens older than 90's commodores going up or back though :(

Now s and r series Vals are uncommon at the best of times but 2 in one day and the same colour !!!
I really like the r series but I'd take an S series in a heartbeat!

xmas bummer

So Ambulance called at 3 Am this morning, 16yo son had severe chest pains, spent 13hrs in emergency today, Has MioCardia which is an inflamed heart muscle, most likely caused from the Influenza b virus he had back in august still hanging around in the body. dont know to much more at preset, He has to be monitored 24/7 as if it worsens can cause a heart attack, so xmas in ICU for him it looks like. probably 10 days to 2 weeks of treatment etc to be considered out of the woods. so not the xmas i was hoping for....

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.
