HG Monaro brake proportioning valve wire

On my car the wire is disconnected on the brake proportioning valve. What does it do ? Should I just plug back in?

As you may have picked up from a comment in a post by someone the other day, I need my original V8 brake booster recoed.
Does anyone have any idea on price? and who does them?
Also is a V8 booster the same as a 6cyl?

I have the original to send off so I don't want to buy a new one (700 bucks on ebay)
Many thanks in advance for your advice.

Alby

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

Form a gasket WB brake booster to firewall

Hi All

Anyone know what the gasket material is on a WB brake booster to firewall?
What do you use?

Just removed my brake booster and there is a black maluable substance between the booster and firewall, it has the consistence of blue tack, once removed easily you can squish into a ball.

Thanks in advance.

84 WB BRAKE BOOSTER REMOVAL

Hi All
Absolutely stumped. How do you get a spanner / socket onto the top left nut inside the WB firewall, up behind the steering column?
Any guidance is appreciated.
Can get spanner on it but cannot turn due to hitting steering column.

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.

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
