VH/VK 5 speed behind a 186 ????

Can anybody help with the suitability of the Commodore 5 speed to fit behind the 186 (red) motor, to go in my EK ute. I know they aren as strong as the Celica/Supra, but quite cheaper.

Does the Holden Borg Warner 5 speed bolt straight up? Does the flywheel have to be changed? Some help on this matter would be appreciated.

Cheers

FC CUSTOM PICS

HI GUYS:
Here is some more pics of the custom. Also a pic of the ute I am building .This pic was taken middle of last year when I bought it . It was very rusty .I was only left with the roof and 1/4 panels . The entire floor and sills and all its underbits have been painstakingly replaced so no-one would detect the substantial rust repairs. Every join was made on factory seams. This Ute should have gone to the dump. Right now it has nearly all the rust repairs completed and smoothing of the body has progressed to about halfway. Colour will be pale blue (wedgewood) and it will have Special guard and door mouldings as well as windscreen moulds. I am not adding the 1/4 panel moulds from the special.
Motor is a hot 192 with 186 S carb and decals, X2 headers.5 speed Celica, HR disc front and HR LSD rear.Exhaust is 2 1/2" mandrel stainless. Wheels are widened stockers with dress rings and hubcaps.Colum is EK (4" shorter) with stock FC wheel and seat is EK bench.
I have heaps of build up pics if anyone is interested let me know and I will post them up.

Electronic ignition onto a red motor

I have a HR X2 and fancy the idea of putting a later model distributor into it so I can do away with the points. I have a VB blue motor distributor and believe it will bolt straight in and run.
However I am also told that the blue motor has a different ignition curve due to emission control requirements and this can be changed to suit the red motor by removing "weights" I am sure someone has done this before?

Can you tell which one is the FC ?

Click pic for a closeup

Comment away below, Thanks for the pics Andrew and Kim.

Here is a bit of the email that went with it.....

........... there may be more than one early Holden to feel the touch of my trusty gas axe
The offended people should know that the FC was built entirely from junk and cast offs. The amount of recycling was unmeasurable. The challenge was to use parts from entirely knackered cars . For instance the EK Wagon that gave up its roof skin for the cruising skirts and steering column lived in a dam ! , and I had to swim out to it with a hacksaw much to the farmers amusement. If you are interested I can supply photos of dead Holdens . Maybe this can be a new element you could add to your website. (If offending people is your bag ) Any information you can pass on about setting up a web site would be helpful as I have a large range of stuff to share . In the meantime I am only too happy to share it with you.

Still Holden it together
..ANDREW...
