starter motor issue

just would like to know what would cause a starter motor to not stop working even when the ignition is off and I had to disconnect the battery to stop it from operating...
is that a solanoid issue? if I put another solanoid on it will that fix that or is the starter motor kaput?
cheers
Grant

HEI Dizzy

What is the best coil to run with a Bosch HEI Distributor on a 3.3 blue six? Is there any gains to be had by buying something fancy or expensive?
Cheers, Mick.

HR 186S Special

Hi Guys - Last weekend I was at the GMH car day and
there was about a dozen HR's. Great to see rare NASCO
bits - through to a barn find 186S HR Special. I had
done up my 186 HR & upgraded it to a 186S many years
ago but could never find photos of what the carbie to
accelerator pedal looked like.

Attached is a photo of original 186S linkage set up
for the WW Stromberg two barrel.

186 Rear Main Bearing Cap Torque

Hi, been a long time since I posted anything here.
Anyway I'm doing a rear main rope seal on a 186 and I'm just about to do up the mains caps. My ellery's manual says the mains caps torque spec is 60 - 70 lb/ft but it then also says that the rear main bearing cap torque spec is only 20 - 26 lb/ft. Does that sound right? Never done one before and not sure myself. Anyone able to shed some light on this for me at all? Thanks.

Missing bolt EJ Holden

Anyone know if this is important (see pucture), I am thinking maybe its just a spare hole because a non standard starter motor is being used on the car, you can't get a bolt through from starter motor side anyway.Looks like it would be tricky to get one from the other side too as it is right in the corner of tunnel and hyraulic fluid lines in the way.
