Fuel gauge is stuck on full

Hey guys,
Ive recently bought a 1976 Holden HQ with 202 six cylinder.
it runs perfectly but the only problem is that the fuel gauge is stuck on full whenever you turn the key to ignition, I've made sure the sender is grounded to the chassis but it didn't seem to work all the wiring is working but we don't know what else it could be.
do you guys have and suggestions?

Starter motor issues

My 6cyli vc commodore has starter motor issues. They are embarrassing me and driving me insane. I cannot work out how to fix it. I’ve been through 3 starter motors new and they all did the same thing. Tick tick tick when trying to start the car. I get out with a hammer bash the solanoid then it might start. I usually have to enlist help the when one taps tthe solanoid and I start it it starts first click normally. I ditched the new starter motors those smaller high torque types for a old original type. Bosch. Same [Naughty Pottyword]. I’m at tethers end with it.

gremlins in the wires

G'day peoples, hoping to pick some brains ..
I lost power the other night to my radio, interior light and dash lights, seems everything else worked.
Next morning i went into town intending to check fuses when i get back but when i got in the car to come home, everything works again .. now done a few short trips but no problem is raising it's head.
Obviously wasn't a fuse so any clue what can do that ? momentary shorting a bare wire somewhere or bad connection in a plug ?

WB Holden ute

Greetings all, I have an 81 WB that is mocked up to look like a Sandman ute. Within 10 minutes of driving the car home the indicators stopped working. Thought it was the sloppy indicator stalk, bought a new one , nope, not that. Checked flasher cans (hazard and indicator) both working fine, fuse ok.

Holden H series fuse holder parts

Does any one manufacture new components to replace the rusty fuse holders that cause higher electrical drain on wiring .
2 wires on this board have cooked the insulation on. could have led to a fire. I do not wish for a modern blade replacement .

HJ gauges not working

Hi all,

Recently the gauges in my HJ all stopped working (Fuel, Temp & Oil pressure).

They were all working, although not with any great accuracy, but suddenly stopped. Speedo and all the warning lights seem to work fine.

I have read here about the voltage regulators causing this type of thing on HZ, could this be the cause on a HJ and if so, how can I fix it ?

Thanks in advance.

Which Alternator HT v8?

took my alternator in to the auto electricians to replace. Apparently they don't just bolt in anymore. Mine is an old style with the pronged plastic pin at the top with an external regulator and will need some wiring done because the new ones only have an internal regulator. I don't know electric stuff but just wanted to know is the the best way these days? Apparently better and more reliable. They don't rebuild them anymore apparently
