Trimatic speedo gears

I've just been on the phone to Holden spare parts after a white speedo drive gear and the guy told me I'd better be quick coz Holden are not continuing production of the white ones. This means they won't be available anymore.
I s'pose there will be non genuine ones around...??? Are there already? I might get a few and stock up. They're about $11 each.

So hurry and get em while ya can.

Whats the difference???

What is the difference between the WB front power window motor and the rear power window motor? in other words, are they interchangable? i bought a set of front doors and the passanger side window has [Naughty Pottyword] itself and the guy at the wreckers wants to give me a replacement, but i have a feeling he is going to rip it out of the back doors??? do you guys know???

Cheers
Thomo

253 fuel consumption

I have a 253 with a Rochester Quadrajet in an LX Torana Hatch. The engine is stock, it has a tri-matic and a ford nine inch (unsure of the ratio). I was just wondering if any one had any figures on what the fuel consumption should be like?

Gday fellas, im looking to change the ratio of my diff, its currently 2.7 (10 bolt salisbury) and im looking to go to a 3.55 or something, but im just wondering what that involves, i have been told that it would beeasier to replace the whole diff than replacing the centre cause there is a heap of mucking around, does anyone know what this mucking around is?

HQ-HZ Axles

Hi all. Just after some info re axles found in HQ-HZ.
I understand that fine spline and coarse spline were available? Did all diff types (banjo, 10 bolt? etc) use these two axle types? or are there a multitude of spline/axles?

What about one-tonner axles? Are these heavier duty?

thanks guys

Changing front brake pads

Hey guys i'm currently replacing my front brake pads on my WB but i'm having a problem pushing the piston caliper back into its shaft so i can put the caliper housing back on. My ellory workshop manual just says use your hands and push it squarely back in, but these pistons won't budge. I've also tried levering them back in but i can't move em. Is there any way I can make it easier to push them back in? Thanks heaps

Straight Cut Question

I'm wanting to buy straight cut timing gear for my 149 red & have only found a set for a commodore 6. Can anyone tell me for sure that this will fit my motor or not? And if not, why not?

225 Cubic inch engine

Ive just been told about a 225 cubic inch BEDFORD engine, apparently it looked similar to a holden grey motor? Is there such a thing or is this guy leading me on? Can anyone shed some light on this? I am curious becase he said i could replace my grey motor with this bedford engine, are the engine mounts similar and does it have 225 cast into the block? Any info would be great. I am just a little excited at the thought of a 225 in an fj...lol

streetneat discovers new web site for FE /FC lovers...

Gdya people... I have discovered another web site that offers heaps for FE/ FC lovers... Its well setup and very user freindly . Not as popular as this site because it limits itself to FE/ FC Holdens but is very well done... would be great if some of this sites features could be incorporated here... check it out at http://www.fefcholde... Tell me what you think... Its a club driven site so they dont agree with my stance on clubs but it has a lot to offer the FE/FC enthusiast and seem a freindly bunch....

Overheating 308

I've just bought a HQ Monaro that I'm having problems with overheating. It was originally a 253 LS, but the engine was replaced with a 308. I've tried flushing out the radiator and replacing the thermostat, coolant and temperature sensor at the advice of the previous owner who assured me that it was the gauge that was wrong, but the car is still overheating. Any ideas before I really have to start shelling out the money?

VN Fan switch problem

I have a 91 VN. I am having problems with the fan switch. It has only worked on settings 3 and 4 (HI) I recently got another secondhand one, fitted it in, still the same even though the guy guranteed it was ok. I tested it as best i could on a multi meter and it seems like it's all working. I have studied the VN manual and came across a "heater fan motor resistor" in the lines. Could this be my problem.
Thanks
Graeme
