Wiring

WB fuel gauge.

Hello All.
Been a while since on here, due to work etc. But have a question, I have searched the pages but unable to find. So have a WB ute with WB statesman dash. Couple of questions. I used the statesman wiring loom and cut in cabin, wired rear light etc. Now would I connect the earth from fuel tank to earth into statesman dash. But I imagine the sender and gauge is not matched, what is the best way to get gauge to work with sender reasonably accurate, doesn't have to be perfect.

Thanks in advance.

HJ Kingswood Speedo

The speedo needle has dropped off :( It was bouncing for a while then just fell off. The odometer is working fine so I assume the cable etc is fine. Where do I start to fix this? Can I get the speedo out without removing the whole dash? Thanks Gerry

HZ premier steering column power problem

Hi all,

Sorry if this seems a basic problem, have done some searches and think I have a problem with the power feed to the steering column in the prem.

I’ve replaced the steering column and have power to the ignition. The engine starts and stops perfectly with the ignition switch. Have power to the oil, temp, petrol and charge gauges. Tacho works.

I don’t have any horns, indicators or anything from the stalk. Have removed steering wheel and checked all pins with a voltmeter on both long thin plugs to harness. Nothing.

What's Missing Here?

I have had a look on Holdenpedia, and noticed with the clock info that there is a plastic fitting on the side of the clocks that I assume the power feed and maybe ground connect to in order to feed current to the clock. This clock, out of a WB Caprice dash, doesn't seem to have one. It never worked in the car when I pulled it out. Can anyone enlighten me, and suggest where I may get it repaired? I am located in Melbourne. Cheers.

Are these ignition coils any good?

Hi fellas,

I've tested these coils (see picture) with a multimeter as described in the instruction booklet that came with the meter.

Temperature at the time was 28 °C. The resistance in the test leads was 0.2 Ohms.

The coils are as follows:

1. Bosch SU12R - was fitted to a 253 engine.

2. Bosch GT40R - was fitted to a 350 engine.

Both are now shelf items, but being the tight ass that I am, I don't want to discard items that might still be useful one day.

Bench Testing Gauges

I have a 2nd hand GTS dash (HX) and gauges that I am about to install into my Tonna, but thought I'd better check that they all work ok before going to the trouble of installing them. Do they operate off reduced voltage? Or can I just hook them up to a 12 volt battery source and test on the bench?

Thanks for the replies.

The front left indicator isn't receiving enough power to operate if any at all, I hook it up to the right side as works perfectly, so I'm guessing something is going on with the wiring

rewire job

I have to at one point put a new TPI harness in my Holden as the old one is the factory one 1989, and is getting old and brittle from the heat from engine bay and the hot weather in NTH QLD.
I've been advised that if I'm going to do this I mars well rewire the WHOLE car, A 1975 HJ Prem, it makes senses(we don't want a faulty old wire and a fire, do we now)
My QUESTION is - Who has done this and did you buy the harness ? and from who ?
Any help would be much appreciated

Hi all Just an update the problem with my EH wagon now seems to be solved. The problem was with 2 wires shorting internally with each other, the yellow for rear brake lights and the black for parkers and number plate light, they have been removed and replaced with new wires of the same colour and the lights are all working as they should. Thank you all for your suggestions and help it was all much appreciated.
