HG holden troubleshooting

The other day i was driving along and all of a sudden the car started to cut out like i was running out of fuel and then turned off completely. It then started up fine again and in neutral and park it idles fine but as soon as it goes into drive or reverse the revs drop to the point where it is struggling to idle. It also cuts out (turns off) whenever I am coming to a stop.

It has a half a tank of fuel (filled the other day) so its not running out, but does anyone know what could be causing this?

Car is a 186 Trimatic. Daily driver and performed fine until this point.

Old EK crash box compatible clutch kits

Hi there,
I have an EK Holden that is currently powered by a 173. We put the 173 in a few years ago so I could still drive it while I had the 138 rebuilt. Six years later, no progress on rebuild, but I need to replace the clutch.
My memory is hazy, but I recall that the old EK crash box was fitted to the red to save on modifying the drive shaft?

Going back to Bench

I have a HR ute that has some unknown buckets and want to go back to the bench. I have been offered an EH bench seat for the right price and was wondering if anyone can tell me if the seat mounts are the same. I would measure it, but is stored under a house and getting to it to measure is difficult.
