HT Power Steer Pitman Arm

G'day,

I've fitted the genuine ram style power steer to my HT and I'm trying to locate the correct Pitman Arm. Anyone know about these?

http://www.ebay.com....

Apparently they use a standard Pitman Arm and remanufacture it to replicate the Power Steer version... Pricey though, $229 delivered...

Hz power steering

Hi all I'm new to the show so be gentle. Anyway I have a question I hope someone can shed some light on it so here goes. I just fitted power steering to my Hz tonna all good until I noticed that the pitman arm is longer by about 5to7 mm. Every pitman arm I've measured has been the same size as the one on my manual box I pulled out which is 177 mm end to end and the one on the power steering box is 185 mm. The longer pitman arm is the same length as the pitman arm on the manual box in my Hqss.

Here is a scan of the front x-member and its mounts taken from the GMH shop manual for the HK.

Identical for HT HG except for rubber vs metal control arm bushes.

HT/G Front Cross member pics

Hi guys,

Does anyone have any photos or exploded diagram of how the front cross member bolts onto the subframe?

I pulled mine apart over 5 years ago, and am finally putting back together with new rubbers, but want to make sure everything is in the correct order.

Cheers
Dave

ultima schocks

Have Ultima HD shocks #400350L.
Shaft of shock is too broad to fit through opening in lower control arm.
Details for fitment on Ultima page suggests whole may need to be widened for fitment.
Would this be fine to die grind a few mil out of the arm?

A9X

Hello fellow old Holden fans. I'm after spec's on the A9X stub axles, in particular the dimension from the stub spindle centre line to the bottom of the stub axle at the base of the lower ball joint. I have searched Holdenpeadia without any luck. I think I'm correct in saying that the HQ-WB 1 tonner stubs are similar but lower the car so I wanted to know if the A9X stubs also lower the car. I have a set of hardened stubs and UC steering arms I want to fit on my LX but I don't want to lower it from where it sits now.
Thanks mal

POWER STEERING HIGH PRESSURE HOSE SPECIFICATIONS

G'Day, just an enquiry on some hose specifications. Can someone tell us what the end fitting specifications are on the high pressure power steering hose. We appear to have 18 TPI 5/8 at one end and 11/16 18 TPI at the other end. Is this a standard hose?
It's on a HQ and we are not completely sure if it's fitted with completely original equipment.
Thanks

Holden/Chev power steering

G'day All.
Have done a search - without luck, on power steering pump options for the Chev into HQ - WB swap.
I have a March bracket kit that mounts the pump on the passenger side and understand the power steering pump from a six cylinder will do the job?
Can anyone enlighten me on the subject?
Cheers, and thanks in advance.
Jacko.

HK Power Steering Control Valve Pic for T

had a set back with the power steering in the Hk.had everything hooked up,time to start her up & check for leaks.

all was looking good,no leaks from the pump or hoses in the engine bay.stuck my head under the car to see a huge puddle of power steering fluid on the floor under the control valve.shut the car down & wiped the fluid off the valve.nothing coming from hose connections,all the fluid was coming from the valve itself,so time to pull it all out & do a rebuild.

the pic above shows the internals of the control valve.starting from top right to left,then middle right to left,followed by the valve body,ball stud seal & clamp on the bottom.will be installing a new seal kit as well as ball stud seal as this was torn

More HK Power Steering Pics for T

g`day Tim,

finally have some more pics for the H page.one of the pump installed,one of the pump from underneath which shows the routing of the hoses through the outrigger & where they come up past the fuel pump,are cable tied to the fuel line (i need a stainless cable tie for that) pass under the brake master cylinder, they then pass behind the steering coupling & down through the sub frame.

you will notice there is a join in the return hose.there was a split in it & being the low pressure side of the system i decided to repair the hose with a joiner.

Steering column boot replacement

Hi guys, I'm changing the steering over to p/s in the ute. While doing it I thought I would throw a new rubber boot on the shaft at the bottom of the column. Does the cross piece at the top of the shaft come out? If so, how?

Cheers

Hi there people ,
Just wondering which steering column is from the 72 hq gts coupe ? Mostly the indicator arm
Please refer to attached photo .
When I got my car it came with the top black steering column. But I'm thinking that indicator stalk is from a later Holden Hz or hx . I would like to know if the bottom brown column is the right one ? Which the pencil indictor stalk?
What's the right one for the gts hq coupe ? Thanks guys
