Lens paint

Just repainted my drivers side rear blinker lens, I did the passenger side a while back & it has held up pretty good.
I used a model car lens paint, I brush it on & you need to be slow & it go's on streaky & probably work better with a hobby spray gun.

Hey T, some pictures for peadia

Hey T
Kinswood's pictures prompted me to send you some for Holdenpaedia also. The pictures of the hinges I posted recently, can you add info to the page showing they fit HQ, HJ, HX, HZ and WB.
The next 2 pictures are:

1st: Turbo 400 cable shifter as fitted to Holden HX and HZ only.

2nd: Automatic Transmission accelerator kick down switch (officially called a Solenoid Detent Actuating Switch) for HQ and HJ only. HX and HZ had a different switch

starter motor dramas continuance ... grrr

So I thought I had it sorted, car was starting first click every click for the last few weeks, then .... Fkn tick tick tick.. Bloody thing started acting up yesterday.
What I noticed was that the brand new relay (30amp fused 4 pronged relay) i put in to replace the old I figured was faulty, was getting warm to the touch even when the car was not running, ignition off. So I disconnected it and the car starts first click again.
My question is that it has always had a relay there its factory loom leading to it, but what the hell does it do?

HQ Monaro 6 cylinder model

Hi,
I am helping a relative sell a '72 HQ Monaro LS that came from the factory with a 202 and column auto, GTS interior and GTS wheels fitted. Can any help with the production numbers for the '72 HQ Monaro by engine size?
I have read that there are only a few HQ Monaros left in the original 6 cylinder configuration?
Is this correct and does this have an impact on price?
Thanks.

Alternator light stays on

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I can't find a related thread. I have a WB ute with 173 transplanted from a VH commodore. Since I've had it, the alternator comes on after about 5 minutes of driving, regardless of revs up till then.
So, I purchased a new 70 amp alternator from Repco and swapped it out.
Same problem. Lights still comes on.
I wondered whether there is a separate relay/regulator or something that also needs replacing; OR, if it might be something to do with the Immobiliser that it has fitted.

Hi all.
I recently stripped back two bumper jacks, one a HJ and the other from an LH Torana..
bases were identical, and so were the posts ...or so I thought.

starter motor issues...

ok my 202 has a starter motor issue which is sending me batty..
1: it sometimes starts first click. no worries at all.
2: sometimes it throws out and just clunks without engaging.
3: sometimes it just clicks and I have to tap it.
4: sometimes it just spins without engaging.
5: sometimes it will start 1st click, but if its cold and doesnt stay idling, itll just click and not start.
usually one of these things happen when theres a problem, not every symptom in the book at different times.

HP STAMPED BLOCKS

Just curious... someone told me a long time ago I don't really remember who exactly but they reckon the HP blocks were stronger than non HP stamped blocks because they had Nickel involved in the casting of the blocks, he was refering to 186 blocks though,from memory. I have a 179 hp block so thats why im wondering.
I dunno much about it but is that true or bull[Naughty Pottyword]?
I the holdenpeadia page it says nothing about that.
Thanks
Grtant

Weber ADM 34 onto Red Six

I am researching putting a Weber ADM 34 carby onto a Red 186.
I have read a few posts on Old Holden but can't determine what inlet manifold people are using. Is there an adaptor to fit onto the 186s WW stromberg inlet or do I need to get a Holley 350 inlet and adaptor. Thanks in advance for any responses.
Cheers Lindsay
