I'm new here
Just have a quick question regarding wiring
I have an 85 vk commodore vacationer sedan which I just converted to a v8.
Originally the car was a 202 carby with 3 speed auto,
I have converted it to a 308 with 4 speed manual (m21)
Although my vk is an 85 I'm sure that the 308 engine I have used is out of an 84 vk south Australian police car (L31)
I have noticed that the wiring is different at the engine harness plug (at the firewall)
The plug fits but there are afew cables that don't match, I have cut the plugs off both ends to re connect the wires,
Would anyone be able to tell me the colour codes to suit vk 6cyl and 308?
Or does someone have a link I could go to online to find out,
Would be greatly appreciated,
Thank you in advance, Tayler

All I know about it: currently the WB does not have its engine in it, this is a long term project my son has been working on and now has a job in NZ and needs to leave this week the car details as follows : 1983 Holden Kingswood WB -Statesman Front End GTS Dash Bucket seats 4 Speed Manual Retrimmed Interior 308 (not in vehicle) with almost all parts to build engine, thousands of dollars worth of brand new engine parts. Rhys is open to negotiation
G'day fellas I'm about putting using thermo fans on the UC when I put the 202 back in after I take the 253 out.
It's gunna be quiet a while before before the V8 go's back becauce I wanna have a crack at rebuilding it myself when I get the time & cash.
We'll anyway ATM my current setup a HQ style scroud & a clutch fan wich is tight with the v8 & with extra length of the 202 I can't keep both. I can iver go std 4 blade fan with the scroud or the clutch fan without the scroud. Or I can something like this http://www.ebay.com....
hi guys&girls hope you all are well.i am just wondering if anyone has used kelpro bushes and how is there quality as i am going to be replacing my hz sedan rear control arm bushes.
This is the result of a stupid old granny in a Getz that hit the brakes and came to a stop in a merging lane onto a bridge because she didn't know how to merge. xr6 Falcon hits granny, Bravo 4x4 flat tray hits xr6 and lucky me gets to drive under the tray of the Bravo !!. Exit one immaculate very low k VT Olympic special .
Could have been worse, at least it wasn't an Old Holden :)

Any one else getting annoyed whilst browsing eBay, seeing a product that claims "free postage" only to find once you click thru to the product details it is actually "free local pickup", and not free postage at all?
Grrrrr... I've just complained to eBay, I wonder if it will change anything?
can anyone pls advise if there's a specifcation to measure the rear spring sag on a HZ kingsy sedan?
me mud flaps have been scraping when reversing a fair bit of late. some mates have commented that it
looks a bit low in the rear.
what do you boys reckon? pics attached. pls ignore the rust holes...blush...getting around to it...

a couple of weeks ago i posted a question about my carby flooding at start up, had fuel dribbling into the primaries on idle & blowing a bit of smoke.
pulled it apart & found that the needle had been hung from one of the holes in the arm at the rear of the float.
new needle & seat to be safe,hung the needle from the center of the float arm & re set float level.
fitted it back onto the car & it now starts & runs better than it ever has. no flooding,dribbling or smoking.i`m one happy camper
Hi guys im wondering if anyone has rebuilt there brake proportioning valve i need the rubber on the large nut but no brake place they want 200 to rebuild have nitrile o rings just rear bolt one i need
Now I've sorted my radiator it's time to think about extractors. Myehholdens pics on the left hand side look fantastic though I'm sure they are custom and worth big $$$$.
There is quite a price differential for extractors on evilbay, (from $250 delivered to near on $1K)
1: Are the cheap ones really half the quality of the more expensive units?
2: Has anyone bought the cheap ones and had a good experience?
3: Do extractors make much difference to the sound output or is that more to do with mufflers and camshafts?
4: Are tri-y a better option for ground clearance or 4 into 1's?
5: Is it possible to buy the complete twin exhaust system on eBay for a HQ (saves getting permits and car trailers etc)
All advice received with thanks :-)
