I've googled but can't find any info.

HEI Dizzy

What is the best coil to run with a Bosch HEI Distributor on a 3.3 blue six? Is there any gains to be had by buying something fancy or expensive?
Cheers, Mick.

HQ Sandman Non existent

It’s funny there actually is no such thing as a HQ Sandman, thats coming from parts interpreters and Smash Repairers who were into those sorts of cars and working on them when they were new and to prove show us a GM Parts Manual or Production Index book which shows part descriptions and part numbers for These Supposed Sandmans and it is illegal for a company to produce cars without parts backups to suit and parts numbers, the GM production index book shows that the sandman did not start until the HJ.

Hg and hq tie Rod ends.

Hi guys, I fitted a new set of tie rods and tie Rod ends (from resto country) to a late model hg recently and seem to be having an issue with the tie rod ends not tightening into the steering arms. The taper on the tie rod ends doesn't seem big enough for that in the steering arms and as a result when you tighten up the nut on the tie rod ends, it runs out of thread and the nut bottoms out before the tie rod is actually a tight fit in the joint. Seems worse on one side that the other. Bought another tie rod end from another supplier to see if any difference and nope, exactly the same.

HR 186S Special

Hi Guys - Last weekend I was at the GMH car day and
there was about a dozen HR's. Great to see rare NASCO
bits - through to a barn find 186S HR Special. I had
done up my 186 HR & upgraded it to a 186S many years
ago but could never find photos of what the carbie to
accelerator pedal looked like.

Attached is a photo of original 186S linkage set up
for the WW Stromberg two barrel.

186 Rear Main Bearing Cap Torque

Hi, been a long time since I posted anything here.
Anyway I'm doing a rear main rope seal on a 186 and I'm just about to do up the mains caps. My ellery's manual says the mains caps torque spec is 60 - 70 lb/ft but it then also says that the rear main bearing cap torque spec is only 20 - 26 lb/ft. Does that sound right? Never done one before and not sure myself. Anyone able to shed some light on this for me at all? Thanks.

Holden EH EJ Nasco / VDO clock gauge

Hi.. I was wondering if anyone out there has the fitting instructions for the FB to EH VDO Clock gauge.
They came with a fitting instruction sheet; and although the wiring seems pretty basic, I would just like to read their instructions. Also, as these were originally meant for the FB-EK, and therefore have a different facia setup than the EH, do people change the Fuel gauge to match. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

Glyn

Fuel filler hoses

Hi guys, I have a EH ute, and I've had to remove the fuel tank because the car was left sitting for eons with fuel sitting in it, the sludge I got out of it was horrid. It looked like black thick mud and the smell almost made my legs buckle. Any way I managed to get it all cleaned out and was trying to source the fuel filler hose and the hose from the tank to the fuel line, I'm having trouble finding anything for my model, am I able to fit something from another model perhaps.
Thanks Shell Sable
