Acdelco products

Hi, Just wondering if anyone uses Acdelco products and are they any good? I like the thought of using "genuine parts" next time I have to replace spark plugs a battery or oil. Also does anyone use holden PF10 oil filters rather than aftermarket bits on their red motor?

Thanks Luke.

EH wind spliters

Hi Guys I'm wondering if anyone has fitted a set of new wind spliters
to their EH holden. I Have purchased a reproduction set and have been sent instruction and measurements. However I have been told that the new ones are longer because they are in fact are scaled on a EJ set not EH. The EJ, I have been told they were longer.
So in Other words I have a new set to fit on an EH with EH instruction but the wind spliter is for a EJ. Has any one encountered this problem.

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

EH Electrical

Anyone got any hints please. Parkers, headlights all work LH indicator is fine but when I put the RH indicator on all the instrument lights flash in sync with the indicators. Also when I put the parkers/ headlights on the brake lights come on, but with no lights on the brake lights work fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in anticipation.

Generator light EH red Motor

Hi al I've recently fitted a Bosch alternator to my 149 as it had nothing when I got it. The alternator has 4 connections 1 for power, 1 for warning light, and 2 others 1 is marked D+ and I can't remember what the other is. I have connected the original power wire(red) to the B+ on the alternator and the generator light wire(brown)to the warning light terminal and it charges well but the generator light does not go out( it has a 12V2w globe fitted. I know this question has probably been asked before but I want the generator light t go out.

EH Holden Rego Check- Failing because of key ignition pin

Am trying to get my Eh Holden rego checked but the mechanic is saying he can not pass it if the barrel in which the key goes in, ignition, has a pin to make sure the key does not fall out.

The kay has always been able to come out in our car- is this across the board for all Eh's or is this man right and it needs to be repaired?

Any help or advice would be great :)

EH 3 speed linkage setup

Hi there,
I've just about finished my EH ute resto and trying to set up the 3 on the tree linkage.
It worked fine in the donor car, but can't seem to get it working right after reinstalling it. I have put new bushes in the top linkage and welded and rebuilt the bottom linkages.
Anyone got some advice on the basic setup followed by fine tuning
Cheers,
CB.

EH Handbrake Return Spring

Hi everyone, I am currently rebuilding an EH wagon for my wife. The wagon is bog stock and when it was purchased it needed 4 replacement floors. What I need please is a picture or the measurements of where the handbrake return spring attaches as I am guessing that it attaches to the RHR floor panel somewhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks..............ChrissoEH
