NICE TO KNOW
I’m not the only knuckle-head who finds everyday stuff like changing plug leads a challenge. I haven’t had to do a clutch in a Mark II Esky, but my own, personal beef with the designers of this fine, family transport module is that the camshaft has to come out through the rear cam bearing. Which means you either remove the dashboard, use a hole saw to permanently maim the firewall and drag the bumpstick out through the interior, or you pull the whole head off. I’ve done a couple of these now, and while whipping the head off is the logical solution, you’ll still find yourself standing around in the garage, scratching your bum and wondering aloud if it needed to be this complicated.
As for your Caprice and its relative rarity, I reckon you’d need to talk to somebody at Holden regarding build numbers. Maybe somebody from one of the relevant car clubs would know, too. Bueller? Bueller?
