Vk commodore conversion

Hey guys
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

Perfect start to 2 weeks holiday !

Perfect start to 2 weeks holiday !

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 :)

"Free Postage" on eBay

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?

Quaddy Problem Fixed

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 all. I was cleaning up the water pump and timing cover bolts off the Barra's 273 yesterday and noticed each one had what looks like a nylon plug it. Whats the reason for this. I can't ever recall seeing similar on any Holden/Aussie bolts.
