Carb soak

Been a while since I have been on here after my HX van exploded in rust & went the way of being parted out.
Currently trying to refurbish an old Varajet carb, and having difficulty getting it cleaned out. After trying a number of concoctions, latest is a 50:50 mix of Xylene & MEK, which one would think would shift just about anything, but after 3 days soaking it still won't remove the internal white deposits as shown in the photo. Anyone got any suggestions of good carby soak mixes?

EH Electrical Re-Visited

Hi all Just an update the problem with my EH wagon now seems to be solved. The problem was with 2 wires shorting internally with each other, the yellow for rear brake lights and the black for parkers and number plate light, they have been removed and replaced with new wires of the same colour and the lights are all working as they should. Thank you all for your suggestions and help it was all much appreciated.

Cheers

Chrisso

Sill(y) question

Been going cross-eyed over this for a few hours.

In the process of drilling out the spot welds I've snapped about three blunt drill bits, so i decided to cut in anyway and have a look before i get to buy a new bit.

I can't wrap my head around how to remove the inner sill properly, looks like the attachment point is jammed in a tight space above the rail.

Not sure if there is enough good metal to just drop a sheet from the existing inner top or not.

HJ VAN Rust Repair Panels.

Anyone know a local business, or decent panelbeater around Northen NSW to Brisbane, who supplies rust panels for a HJ van.. or simply someone who loves the early models and could help?

Trying to steer clear of Rares of K/Country.

Some guys simply don't make beaver panels and floor pans.

Tried Craig Vayne and Ray Taylor.
Willing to go to Craig for Sills, Rear 1/4 and tailgate.

Any more leads...

If necessary i'll go rares for the beaver but @300+ bucks it'd want to be good.

Any help,

Cheers,
Drew.

rebuilding fuel pump

Hi people.
I am overhauling my glass bowl fuel pump on 186 HG.
I have a kit and have read the holdenpaedia page. http://holdenpaedia....
can someone please tell me if the thread tape for the bolts and fuel line is just plumbing tape or something special.
should there be some kind of loctite on the bolts?
should there be gasket sealer on the main mounting to the block?
thanks

HT POWER STEERING RAM

G’day all,

I was told some years back that the Ram used in HK to HG Power Steer is interchangeable with the C2 Corvette Ram of the same era. Does anyone know if that is that correct? If not, what other options are there?

Cheers

Front wheel bearing seal?

I've just replaced front wheel bearings on my WB. There was a slight amount of play in the bearings on one wheel and while the bearings looked okay when I pulled them out (no discolouration or scoring, pitting etc) I thought it'd be cheap insurance to just replace them. Even with the new bearings, it has exactly the same amount of play... if I tighten the castellated nut to the next opening for the split pin, it just seems too tight, as in the torque applied on the nut increases a fair bit. I'm familiar with trailer bearings and the amount of play is acceptable but is it on a WB?

WB Statesman aircon hoses

I have had all sorts of grief getting my WB's aircon in order over the last year. Bought a reco A6 compressor (the original one had the clutch/pulley missing), new receiver dryer, NOS condensor, replaced the vacuum pods...
Yesterday I noticed that the air isn't blowing that cold anymore (just had a regas a few weeks ago when I had to replace the orifice tube).
One of the high-pressure ac hoses is leaking, just pin hole leaks but it needs to be replaced.

HG brakes question

Hi, should my HG ute rear brakes have an auto adjuster mechanism or could you get them without?
My brakes are working because they are shiny.
It has discs up front although I believe it started life with four wheel drums.
and while I am at it, can I tell if the rear cylinders are the correct size for the discs? there are no visible markings. at least they are dry.

Possible Earth Issue

Hi guys
I'm having an issue with my HK I suspect is as earthing issue.

My lights and tail light lamps work.
My brake lights work.

However, when my headlights are on, and I put my foot on the break, my driver's side rear lamp turns off.

I've heard HK holdens are infamous for bad earthing, so I'm curious to hear people's thoughts.
