drum brakes

Hi everyone,
Replacing drum brake shoes on my EH wagon, looking at a crap Gregorys manual with no pics and hard to decipher directions. Can anyone tell me if it matters which way around the primary shoes and secondary shoes go for left or right hand side? And does it matter which way around the adjustment wheel goes? The way they were set up is different from the way the manual tries to explain it.

Modified brake system.

Ive jsut recently purchased a modified HR frontend with the rack and pinion steering unit attatched from rod hadfield.

Just wanting to know if anyone has actually installed the rear mounted rack and pinion onto an EH.. as some help is needed in this modification.

Also, im not too sure if anyone has asked this previously.. but i will be purchasing a V6 diff from a VN-VS commodore (are there any differences there?) and fitting it. I know that i need to shorten it first, but what else is needed?

HR disc conversion

I Live in SA & own an EH Wagon, which I am going to do a HR disc brake front end conversion on (which means welding new Engine mounts to the crossmember etc). Am I supposed to get it inspected at Regency.

HR disc conversion

I am about to do a conversion to a HR disc brake front end with a booster on my EH. From what I have been told, I will also have to change the rear wheel cylinders to HR ones, compatible with the disc brake front.

Will the HR rear wheel cylinder fit straight on, in place of the original one, or do some mods have to be made to make it fit?

EH brake query

Hi,

I am doing up an standard EH and have found that my oroginal brake booster is screwed. I have purchased a HR front end with Torana disks on board, but I not yet ready to put the front end in (about 3 months away).

Which would be the better option?

1) Run without
2) Repair the original
3) Run a VH40 unit on EH drums? Is this possible?

disc or drums?

i have a HG kingswood and as i do not want to drop in a V8 i wanna rebuild my 186 engine and supercharge it. since the car has drums all round is it better off putting discs on the front or just keep the drums and install a booster?

thanks
