EH 3 speed gear linkage

Hi there, I'm trying to set up my gear linkages on my 149 3 speed box.
I have put new bushes and re built the worn rod ends at the box end, I now need to set up from the start.
Can anybody give me the 5 min setup ?
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.

48-215 starts but dies after 3-5 seconds

Hi,

Have not had my 48-215 out in a while - 4-5 years :-(

When I try to start it fires up well revs high for 3-5 seconds and then stops.

Seems to me it is not getting enough fuel. Could this be fuel pump problem? Carburetor float problem or jet blocked?

I don't think it is on the ignition system side as it turns over strongly and does start and when it is running seems to be firing on all cylinders.

Any assistance greatly appreciated.

Wb ute fuel cap

Hi all.

I'm in the process of going right through my fuel system and replacing all the rubber hoses.

While cleaning the fuel tank out I found a handful of components that look like they may have come from a fuel cap.

The cap I'm currently running is very basic with just a simple rubber seal and a very small breathing hole, but that breathing hole tends to leak fuel when I have a full tank and I'll turn around corners on winding roads.

Fuel sender repairs

Hi all.

I'm in the process of repairing a leaking fuel sender.
It was leaking from the soldierd joint so that's been re soldered. I was lucky enough to be able to remove and reuse the original press on clip that holds the sender wire post in place. Unfortunately now it's leaking from the rubber seal that's seals the fuel sender Post.

oil in manifold

what other than a bad pcv valve or cracked pistos, bad rings, or dodgy stem seals can cause oil getting into manifold??
The car sounds like it backfires on idle, then when you rev it it kinda 'whop whop whop'!! it has no power under load and drives like it misses. it idles smooth except for the little backfire sounds. when it initially started i thought a lifter had collapsed but i checked it all rockers are tight and lifters seem good.
everything evaluated.. i seem to have concluded a part of my head gasket has [Naughty Pottyword] itself...
