Help

I have a 179 in an EH and I have just changed the water pump. The end of the pump body had corroded and started to leak. I am assuming the leak was from the pump and section of the pump body was missing. Well after changing it and filling it up I noticed water leaking out of the bottom of the timing chain cover. I will recheck the pump, but does anyone have any thoughts of what may be wrong or I may have done wrong.

The D has new H plates

I've recently joined a club & now the HD is on Log Book Trial Rego.
I get to drive the mighty D 60 days a year anywhere, not including club runs, maintenance runs or mechanical bookings. It's $95 the first year including the green slip & $55 a year there after as a bonus my full insurance with Shannon's has gone from $10500 with a premium of $356 to $13500 with a premium of $179.65.

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 ??

Now with extra Zip

So I took the D on it's first decent spin since the addition of the X2 headers & I was pleasantly supprise with the little performance gain from the big block 179! Lol
Despite a little flat spot in the little stromberg I'm very pleased with little extra zip.

Mr Muscle & CLR v's inlet manifold.

How'd all
I've been busy collecting & cleaning parts for a disc brakes conversion & I've score a late HR disc brake manifold with a PCV port as I also plan on setting up a PVC & deleting the walking stick.
Well anyway I cleaned up my manifold with two go's at the oven cleaner & a final scrub with steelo & CLR I'm fairly pleased with the outcome.
Cheers Shane

Rope or Neoprene

What are the pro and cons of fitting a neoprene rear main seal as opposed to the rope seal on red or blue six?
Has anyone used the Neoprene seal and had good results from it?

Cheers, Mick.

Ben Simpson, what do you recommend as the best sealer to use on the head studs that protrude into the water jackets when rebuilding a Holden red/blue six?

Cheers, Mick.

How to adjust tension on a front vent window.

Does anyone know how to adjust the tension on a front vent window? It's the only aircon I have in my EH and as it is now quite slack it won't stay open to direct air onto me. Thanks in advance.
