NES

About time you posted an update.

Was starting to think there was no progress. Roll Eyes  Roll Eyes

BTW that window switch will look cool.

Ok Ok so I'll cough up. They are out of '96 - early'97 Sonata. I think the same style are in the Mercedes Work van?

Anyway they are fairly easy to fit. I did try the bommodore ones and even AU Falcon motors which were a b!tch to try and fit

If you haven't grown up by 50, you don't have to.

Some pretty technical stuff there NES, the window winder for a switch is a great idea.  Cool

Not much happening. Decided to swap the alternator and air con compressor and raise them. This way the aircon lines will be short and straight to the unit behind the fire wall.

Template for the alternator done. Clears the bay but I'm concerned about the space to the radiator. Davies Craig are the thinnest fan I could find at 51mm

I now have a working fuel gauge!!!
I am running a VS commodore fuel pump on VT wires trying to match an FC gauge.
In the table below there is a match to early commodore gauges...



So I grabbed a VH commodore fuel gauge and modified (cut) it.



It fit in the original gauge frame after shaving the holes to retain it properly.

This is a crap one I used as a test.




Then I used the real one


And modified the original backing plate to go on the VH gauge.


Don't know if the needles can be swapped yet. ... Didn't look at the needle till I sealed it all up.

That's cool , the way you have kept the old glass with the dodgy lettering . People who have not done this conversion probably wouldn't appreciate that the reason you need to do this is that the commodore electrics wont work the old Holden gauge . I looked at this when I did commodore into Vauxhall some 4 years ago and still have a few spare gauges on the shelf. I never found a workshop manual that explained that the tiny little icon in the middle of the dash wiring diagram was a resistor. I still have a commodore sender unit in a fe-ek sedan tank to accommodate  the vs instruments . With no baffles its a little to busy to give a correct reading  . I would love to get down your way and see this project when you have it finished .Cheers Haydn

Looks great.
I got nemesis in newcastle to re calibrate a VDO sender to my guage $87 with sender for the tank.
Mines needed for a custom tank where as people using commodore tanks this is a easier fix.

Probablly only saved your self $20 as mine came with the sender and you allready have the commodore one  Grin
so all they have to calibrate is the guage....
