Eh Ute Handbrake Cable

Hi All,

Am in the process of changing the brake backing plate on the EH. (For those following along from my previous thread.)

I can't seem to get the handbrake cable attached to the lever.
It is very tight. The handbrake is off.

Any help much appreciated.

Cheers
Scott

HG Drum Brake Question

Hi all,

Another question I would appreciate advice on. I have a '71 HG wagon that I am restoring for my daughter who loves the old surfie retro wagon culture. My concern is that the car has the standard drum brake front and I am wondering whether this is going to be sufficient. Should I be looking at putting in disc brakes or are the drums safe? Obviously I don't want to be putting my daughter into a car that does not stop.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Poor brakes

Hi All,

Quick question, My brakes are not real flash ( never have been since I got it (HQ) a few months back) , it pulls car up but doesn't dip down at front at all and I wouldn't trust it to stop in an emergency, I have just noticed that the booster, master & prop valve are all PBR and the front callipers are alloy Girlock ,should they all match and is this an issue ? and maybe cause of poor braking.

Thanks in advance for info

Tim

HK master cylinder & brake booster

are the push rods in a hk disc brake booster adjustable ? & should there be any pre load on master cylinder piston when fitted up to the booster ?

i was sure i had read somewhere in the past that the push rods are adjustable.i tried screwing the front push rod into the booster yesterday but it wouldn`t go,like it wasn`t taking on a thread,do i need to apply pressure to the rod while screwing it in ?

trying to fit a new master cylinder & having no luck getting the brakes to bleed

cheers
jason

Old Cars

Doncha love old cars? Spent a morning replacing shoes and drums on the EJ and hopped in her to test drive and bed them in. Would not start, turned over and over. Caught a couple of times but no go. She normally fires up on the second or third crank. Thought it was flooded, left for a minute or so but no dice. Popped the bonnet, tickled the accelerator linkage and petrol spurted out the carby. Bugger me if the little plug on the side hadn't popped out! No sign of it on driveway, must have happened on the way home yesterday.

Front Drums

Should front drums get hot under normal use? After a 30 minute drive in traffic both front hubcaps are hot to touch - not too hot to put your hand on them but pretty warm. Rear hubcaps are stone cold. Is this normal, or are my shoes dragging a bit?

PROTEX HQ-WB DISCS HEADS UP!!

just a heads up here to anyone about to purchase or has recently purchased protex brand front discs #DR014 for hq-wb etc.
ive just bought a new pair from a retail outlet and have found they have the stud pattern wrong probably commodore pcd?(slightly smaller)the box and discs are marked DR014 and they are 276 diameter and 25.4 thick.
its only I have the old shank nut type jelly bean mags that the wheels wouldn't go back on once id fitted them on the car!if I had the stock steel wheels with tapered nuts it might have gone un noticed until they snapped or out of centre wheel vibration?
being the easter weekend I cant sort it until Tuesday,i did ring the outlet and were most helpful and offered to run new ones out on their way home but only had one of a different brand in stock.
