Temp switch answered

Recently wanted to know about temp switch, red six EH on. Correct one to use, if it should screw all the way home (if below thermostat) and the supposed myth of dash warning light coming on when cranked? Found my answers on fb, and the myth proven fact. See pics, cheers all. ps Dr Terry is still God πŸ˜‰

Bench Testing Gauges

I have a 2nd hand GTS dash (HX) and gauges that I am about to install into my Tonna, but thought I'd better check that they all work ok before going to the trouble of installing them. Do they operate off reduced voltage? Or can I just hook them up to a 12 volt battery source and test on the bench?

Thanks for the replies.

Paint and Trim codes

Morning.

I've recently bought a 1974 HQ ute as a project, and I've a few questions.

From what I can gather from searching the net is that it is a '74 Belmont made in Sydney and came with engine L20 (202). There are no codes on the plate for trans or axle.

The paint code (568-15894) which I think is black. I'm unable to find a reference for the trim code (1885-35A). Though the glove box lid and A pillar trims are painted a bluey-grey.

Can somebody help me identify the colour and trim?

I've attached a photo of the plate.

Thanks.
