HX Vacationer Wiring Schematic

I have a 1975 HJ Ute. I am about to fit a Dash out of a HX Vacationer into it.
I noticed there is a change in the amount of wires running through the firewall.
It would be great to get a wiring schematic for the HX Vacationer so I can wire her up correctly the first time.
Can anyone help me?

Why are both my indicators on my Hr Holden either not working or both flash together ??

I've replaced the old flasher unit thinking it was the cause but it's still doing it !!!!

The indicators either both go on or none at all I don't know what's wrong with it I can only imagine it's been wired in wrong ??

Vt roller into wb ute

Hi guys. I've picked up a vt roller motor for my wb ute. I'm wondering if i can use the distributor from the wb 308 block on the vt 304 to run straight gas with a different manifold?
I'm thinking of going back to petrol but I'm not keen spending 800 on a wiring conversion.

Ignition woes

Hi guys,

So my tonner has started doing something weird: I basically have to bash the underside of my steering column to get her to fire. Must be a wire or connection that has come loose inside the column/ignition switch yeah?
What should be my couse of action? Pull apart the column? It's a trimatic on the tree does this make it more complicated?

Any advice appreciated

HZ 253 Auto - power drop..... out of Park position??

Got a problem here my son and I can't get our heads around. I have a 1980 HZ 253 Tri-matic column shift sedan......... with the column shift in Park and ignition in the On position, we have 11.5 volts at all fuses.

When the gearshift lever is put into all other positions in the shift range, we're getting a voltage drop at all fuses down to 7.5 volts.

This is evident by the dimming of the interior light and fan speed dropping.

We have unplugged the neutral safety start switch, turn signal, dipper/wiper and reversing light switches. The only wiring still plugged into the steering column is the ignition switch.

There doesn't appear to be any movement in the ignition switch or activating rod when the gear-stick is pulled out of the park position.

HK Monaro electrical problem

Hi Guys,
Have just got my HK Monaro up and running after 8 years in hibernation. Put a new battery in a few months ago and everything was fine.

A couple of weeks ago the temp, fuel, amp and oil pressure gauges stopped working but eventually came on after about 10-15 mins of driving. When they do come on the red amp light illiminates as well. While all this is happening if I engage reverse (turbo 350 trans) all the gauges die again and the amp light gets brighter. When I disengage reverse everything goes back to normal.

Last night was the first time I drove it in the dark and there are no dash lights or courtesy lights, but the headlights work.

I'm thinking the alternator requires replacing?

replacing ignition switch

hi guys I am in the process of replacing my ignition switch in the hg holden ute. I bought a brand new ignition for my model from rare spares and have discovered that it only has 5 pins and my old one has 6 pins. it came with instructions which stated that if it was replacing a 6 pin switch that I should splice the 2 ignition wires onto one ignition pin. the yellow wire should be cut away from the plug and attached to the pink wire at the plug so that ignition 1 and ignition 2 wires now go to the only ignition pin on the new switch.
