202 Questions...

I was looking at the compliance plate on my tonner and it says that the diff is a GM9. Does anyone know what ratio this is?

Also, I have a trimatic box. The speedo is reading 20k's too high. The speedo sender gear is a green gear (I think about 19 teeth). Can anyone confirm if the sender is the correct unit for this box?

Cheers.

no pulse

hey all.
here's a doozie thats got me stumped. yesterday I took a nice long drive out to janolan caves, the beut little hx performed nicely, we stoped several times to enjoy the scenery and have lunch etc. all without incident. Heres the odd thing. I went to start the car after we got home only to find that there was no response, not so much as a 'click' when I turned the ignition. I tested the battery, it had charge and all the dash, lights, wipers etc worked, but there was absolutely no response from the starter. Is this an occurance anyone else has had, if so what could be the cause? I'd have thought if the starter was on its way out it would happen gradually ie.

black heads?

Hozit. Can anybody shed light on the differences between black injected heads and the normaly asperated ones. I've been told injected ones are better but I'm not sure how to tell which of the two I've got on my red block.I plan to split them soon so internal or external differenses would be usefull. Any help would be much appreciated.

number plate lamp

Hi all,
I am after some info regarding the number plate lamp on EH utes. I have recently purchased a ute that has no lamp at all and there doesn't seem to be any wiring located nearby. Can anyone tell me how the lamp is mounted, where it should be wired to and what the actual lamp looks like? Also, is the number plate lamp the same for an EH sedan, wagon, van or ute?

Thanks

Carby

Hey all,have noticed since my ute has been back on the roadis that it seems to be quite heavy on the fuel consumption than I remember!
I also notice what sounded like air being sucked into or blowing out of the carby area and on closer inspection after I removed the air filter off it sounded quite loud!

I presume that the carby is standard and has a MT on the side of it if that helps!

Are there any other alternative carbys I could swap onto it?
