Brakes

Hg brakes sticking and grabbing hard. Help

I have a hg sedan with disk brakes all round, rear from a ss commodore and front from hopper stoppers, brakes have worked fine for year until I replaced the master cylinder and got the booster reconditioned. Since then every time I touch the brake pedal the slam on hard and stay on for 1-2 seconds, and that's just a feather touch.

Any help would be great I already tried adjusting the booster rod to pedal and nothing.

Thanks sam

hq calipers fouling on h r front end

I holding fans, i have bought a h r front end with commodore rear mount rack and pinion and hq hz brakes. It has aluminium pbr calipers i'm wondering if anybody knows if there's a way to get around them fouling on the upper swing arm, is there different calipres that maybe don't foul or do you just have to grind a bit off the swing arm?

Fx master cylinder upgrade on my fx (with hr disk brakes)???

Hey all I'm restoring an fx with the old man. We have just put a hr front end in with a hr diff as well. We are going to run the hr disk brakes on the front and leave the hr drums on the back. We need some advise on how to modify the original master cylinder to a more newer one like on a torana or Hj with a vh44 booster. Is it possible to put a newer master cylinder where the original one sits and still make the original brake pedal work or is there another way to do it that is easier any help much appreciated!!! Cheers Daniel

Brake Pedal Rubbers

I just bought a Brake Pedal Rubber for the VK and found it's identical to that used on the HZ.

An Ebay ad says VB - VZ Auto, but doesn't include any Kingswoods ...

The Holden part number is 07433702.

Brake cable

Hey Guys

I know its not oldholden....but.....I have a 61 Scout 80.

I was wondering if someone could tell me how the hand brake cable attaches to the backing plate of the brakes? It looks like it pushes through, then about 4 little arms pop out and stops it pulling back out? It also looks like you push the outer cover in and turn it either way which also locks it, but this is being stopped by a washer? Does this washer go out the outside of the plate, or inside?

HK front disc brake stub axle seal

I have purchased front wheel hub bearing kit but the seal provided (the one on the left) is different to the original one which has a metal ring around the rubber seal. Has anyone used the replacement style seal? Does it work well.

HZ-WB Girlock caliper differences.

Hi Guys,

Have a quick brake question for the guru's.

Does WB front alloy caliper brake hose have the same size thread on the union (the end that connects onto the brake line connection at the chassis rail, not the end that screws onto the caliper) as the HJ-HZ caliper's brake hose?

Just need to know if I can fit a WB alloy caliper and hose onto a HJ or do I need to get the HZ caliper/hose. I think I remember reading somewhere that the thread size was different on the WB but cant find it in Holdenpedia.

HR Ute rear brakes Help needed

Hi All

I am setting up the rear brakes on a EH ute using a HR ute diff and brake assembly.This has the 2 and a quarter inch or 57 mm wide brake shoes. Running HR disk brake front end. I have searched the net but can't find anyone who sells these. Anyone know if these are still available or do I need to weld up a front shoe assembly to suit the rear?
Any help or ideas would be appreciated

old school flames

Hello everyone. Haven't been on the site for a while and thought Id show you all my first attempt at some old school flames.
Trying to stay committed to a "have a go" outlook and with enormous help from my adorable wife we searched the net for some flame styles.
Then found out how to stencil, mark out ,tape up and method of painting and just had a go. This effort all stems from some "have a go"
rust repairs in the RH window scuttle area and both doors and then touching up with paint and finding the result was patchy. So I decided
