Wiring

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 Β°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.

Holden HQ Ute front left indicator not working HELP

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

EH Electrical Re-Visited

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.

Cheers

Also when I put the parkers/ headlights on the brake lights come on, but with no lights on the brake lights work fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Failing Alternator ?

our recently purchased vr statesman having a few issues. a couple of weeks ago it had sat for a few days without being used, was struggling to turn over. next day we came out to a dead battery, the battery out of the HK came to the rescue. now whenever it has sat for a couple of days it turns over very slowly, to the point you think it`s not going to start but just gets there.

Generator light EH red Motor

Hi al I've recently fitted a Bosch alternator to my 149 as it had nothing when I got it. The alternator has 4 connections 1 for power, 1 for warning light, and 2 others 1 is marked D+ and I can't remember what the other is. I have connected the original power wire(red) to the B+ on the alternator and the generator light wire(brown)to the warning light terminal and it charges well but the generator light does not go out( it has a 12V2w globe fitted. I know this question has probably been asked before but I want the generator light t go out.

Dual function oil pressure switch

**ANSWER FOUND** Holley Part SKU: HO12-810

Seeking wisdom of the sparky kind.....
Could anyone point me in the direction of an open/closed dual circuit oil pressure switch?

Goal is, "Oil pressure- fuel pump power/ LIGHT off"
"No Oil Pressure- no fuel pump/ LIGHT on"

Not entirely sure where to source, and surely someone can steer me even towards what these switches/ senders are called.

Happy Holdening
