noise in the rear end

I have noise from the right rear wheel when cornering. I replaced the wheelbearing and all bush kits in the spring shackle about 6 months ago and that seemed to fix this same problem that has resurfaced again. Can anyone tell me what might be causing this to happen repeatedly?

Any Mechanics here?

I want to do two jobs to the head of my blue 202.
1. replace the hydraulic lifters = Can i do this without removing dizzy & side plate. Are they removable under the tappet cover & rocker gear?

2. I also want to replace the Valve stem seals, can this be done without removing the head. I realise you need the head off to compress the springs but was wondering if anyone new an easier option.

Oh p.s Ive been quoted $105 for a 3 speed transmission service in vic. Sound about right?

Vaccum Leak

I have WB holden Ute with a Blue 202 which squeals when decelerating from medium speeds(80-140). I'm sure its the vaccum, i was just wondering if anyone had worked with these systems and could direct me to the problem.

Sqealing noise from distributor

My distributor was making some noise, it took me a while to work it out because it would usually only do it for a minute or two after being started on a cold day. Then the noise went away. I don't think it was the cap or rotor button but it sounded like the bearings might be shot. However it doesn't make the sound anymore.

I was wondering how easy it is to find out if this is the case and how much it would cost to have it replaced.

gearbox problems

my HX, 202, trimatic has been a real bitch to me lately. i have to go to very high revs just to get it to change gears. i dont mean like your normal "give it a little juice and she will shift". i am talking about really pushing it, dont know whats going on. i have cleaned the sump and replaced the oil filter, as well as putting a 186 dizzy of a hg on and draining the transmission fluid. thats about it.

GTS instrument panel

Can anyone let me know how to hook up and calibrate the tacho on a HK GST instrument panel? Note: it's in a ute not a monaro and the engine is a 202.

The HK Ellery's manual I have has nothing in it about it.

Thanks

problems with VK EFI

ok heres my current situation, ive had my 1985 EFI VK for about a year now and ive had serviced twice and had to have the camshaft gears replaced as well, the main problem is that when i start her up she blows a bluey grey smoke cloud, which may i say really impress the boys and the ladies, to go with that she has a really rough idle it seems to have trouble either breathing or getting fuel as the revs are all over the place and after a while the rev difference gets so much it stalls the only way to fix this is to boot the accelerator when it starts to die. plus it will sometimes stall when going from drive to reverse when its just started up. does anyone have any ideas, i would like to know wether to trouble shoot this now as im looking at upgrading the exhaust system and chaning it from an auto to an manual, is it worth the trouble shooting or should i put up with it for now and get it all rebuilt later?

So you have stuffed the thread on the bolt.

Get a nut and hacksaw a cut into it, when you screw this on to the offending bolt it will clean it and maybe fix the thread burr.

:)
I love handy hints.

Wiper Pivot Installation

Hi,

I am trying to install an wiper pivot and joint assembly on my HZ after the old one was damage and had the nut popped off the rotating pin.

Am having an incredibly difficult time removing and installing the old and new one from what I thought would be the easiest method, the top firewall recess infront of the hood and window.

What is the easiest way to do this? Am I required to dissasemble the dash and go through the vents as one person has informed me? And if so, what is involved as I am a novice.
