wb drum brakes

Greetings all,
in the process of replacing drums, shoes and wheel cylinders on my WB ute( V8)
Ive taken pics so that I remember where everything goes but one thing I have noticed is that that there is no self adjustment on it.
This normal for WB?

Electric vacuum booster conversion

Just Wondering whether anyone has done an electric booster conversion for their early holden 6 or v8? I'm starting to put together a new set of sidedraught carbies for a new motor that'll eventually put into the old girl and use on the road, and past experience tells me that the brake booster isn't going to be as effective, so I'm planning on converting it over by maybe adapting a VE/VF commodore one.

If anyone here has done this kinda conversion, and could give me some tips and let me know whether it was any good, I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks in Advance!

HQ-HZ Alloy Girlock Caliper Dimensions

Hi All,
Just wondering if anyone can help me with a particular dimension on the front calipers on HQ-HZ when they are the alloy Girlock type. I need to know the measurement from the mounting holes to the top of the caliper body at the highest point to understand how high off the disc the will sit. I currently have cast iron PBR calipers which have clearance issues in my application and I want to know whether the alloy Girlock calipers will be a ‘silver bullet’ for my problem before I run out and buy a pair!
Thanks in advance,
Mark

Hz van Disc rear brakes

Hey guys and girls

I need to upgrade the rear brakes on the pano and I have heard that you can fit vn - vs ( boarg Warner) rear brakes to a hz large Salisbury.
Is this true???
Has anyone on here done this conversion?
Is it worth it or should I try and find disc brakes from a statesman or similar
Thanks in advance

Bleeding Brakes

Hi,

I’m about to bleed the brakes on my EH - I have a HR front discs with a VH40 booster.
I’m a bit confused on the order to bleed the brakes. I thought you should start at the rear left (passanger side) - rear right (drivers side) - front left - front right - booster. But I’ve read that this isn’t right in the GMH manual. They say front right - rear right - front left - rear left...
Can someone tell me the correct order please? Thanks

HJ Hand brake problem

Hi all, been a while.
Hope you are all well!

Has any one had similar trouble with their HQ - WB handbrake levers?
The inner bit wants to keep spreading apart letting the cable pull through. As you can see I have crimped it a bit without much luck. Disassembly looks difficult too, as it is a drill apart job by the look of things.

Any advice appreciated.

Cheers

LMH
