Installing Tie Down Points HZ van

Hey guys,

Im interested in installing 4 tie down points in the floor (tray) of my van for moving bikes etc.

Just wondering if you guys have done this before and if you ran a bit of plate or big washers on the under side of the floor to prevent them pulling through.

Thanks in advance guys

valve guide oil seals

got this VK 3.3 have stripped the head down, I noticed the valve stem oil seals are fitted below the washer, right above the guide but when looking at the gregorys manual it shows the seal fitted above the washer. I think the way the seals were fitted would allow them to be squashed or pushed out of their grooves when the valves are operated, whereas when fitted the way the gregorys shows they would not.
what is the general feeling on this?
Don't want to have it pumping out oil when driving!

thanks

Temp gauge issue

Anyone has this issue?

Temp gauge on a 202 doesn't move, I've read on here about the resistor/capacitor (can't remember which one ) failing and you can wire one in easy enough.

However had it at the mechanic the other day and asked him about it, when I earth the wire going to the sender on the motor the gauge goes all the way up, does this indicate it's working in regard to wiring and the under dash parts. He reckons I've got the wrong sender in it, but I am pretty sure it's right

knowing sfa about electrics is this still a resistor failing ?

Blue 3.3 heater hose connected differently

Hi guys

My HQ has had a 3.3 blue motor transplanted into it a long time before I purchased it. The heater hose layout seem to be a bit different to what I've seen in pics. When standing in front of the engine Is it common to have both right hand spigots of the thermostat housing linked and the single left spigot of the thermostat housing going to the heater and the one spiggot from the water pump going to the heater?

Is this good, bad or not an issue?

Hq wagon project - new to the game and have a few questions

Hey guys, I find this forum a great resource but extremely hard to find information as there doesn't appear to be a search function? If there is I can't find it?

Anyway, I have an Hq wagon and I have a few questions that I can't find answers to, I'm hoping someone out there can point me in the right direction.

Q. Drivers side of bench seat has collapsed - is this an easy fix, can you repair it without pulling the covers off? Is there an easy way? Is it the spring that fails?

Q. Tailgate skins, Rare spares and kingswood country seem to only do ute tailgates and skins, what are the options? Can you buy new tailgates, skins, replica copies or is repairing the only option?
