202 Blue Head on Red bottom end

Hi All,
I have picked up a decent 202 red bottom end and wish to run a blue 202 head for the better flow and at the fact i will be running tripple webers. Someone told me i may have to block off some of the water galleries and create some new ones. Is this true and if so, where can I find out what has to be done exactly. I have access to and can competantly do mods myself.

Any advice appreciated and can be mailed to grumpy@hyp.com.au or posted for all.

thanks
Brendan.

Leaking Trimatic

Hi all,
Im a bit of a novice (butcher) & recently dropped a new red 202 into my
HZ panny. After more stuffing round then I bargained for I finally got the thing started. Everything works fine except the trimatic tranny pisses oil as quickly as I can fill it. It's coming from the converter area & spilling down the rear of the converter housing. thought I had it all aligned 'cos it bolts up with no gaps. Is there something obvious I've missed?
Thanks - Dave

auto gearboxes

Im sticking a good 186/208 into my ej ute- removing a black 202. I have a trimatic in at the moment- can anyone tell what auto would fit in (without welding) that would handle decent hp, or would a well built trimatic do (am unsure about the existing one lasting long), and who in sydney upgrades the trimatics....

Panelvan shell (or roller)

I am after a HX/Z or WB panelvan body shell in reasonable condition to replace my r/s shell. Prefer in Victoria but may consider interstate if no other choice. I have seen quite a few bad ones over the last 12 months and recently wasted a journey out to ferntree gully to find one that was worse than my current shell.

I am not concerned about the floor pan, however would prefer that the windscreen areas and the rear tailgate area is not rusted (tailgates are not needed).

If you have anything like this you wish to sell, please let me know via here and I will respond.

Silly computers

Well we had to change the IP again, everything "should" be working again(email if not so), must go to jobs now.

Still looking for some really nice people to help with the link as there is too much juggling with one IP.

I think it is time for a site change and update ? click the "comments" and tell me what you think.

how long does she have?

well my blue 202 with ***220,000 on the clock*** seemed to be in fine order with no smoke on startup and with no noises other than a tapping from the 5th cyl. (lifters).......

Anyway....as i pulled off the side cover i found HEAPS of black crap that had to be scraped off with an old screwdriver, honestly it was around 5mm thick! i removed the rocker arms and the pushrods for the 5th cyl. and went on to try to take those lifters out.........anyway....they lift out of their hole by about 4mm then just stop....even pliers wont pull the bastards out!

I have been told that this indicates that the cam is so badly worn that the lifters have been forced into a mushroom shape and wont budge!

If i just shove the old girl back together and put up with that darn ticking how many Kms should i get out of her approximately before she (TYPO

Hz 308-350 conversion

Hello fellow holden lovers! I have only just found this site and am not even sure if I am posting in the right spot. Anyway here gos.
I am a proud owner of a HZ Tonner. When I bought it it had a mildly worked 308 with a 650 Holley, exctractors,M21, etc.
Well that was 6 years ago and the old 308 is on her last legs. Now I could have rebuilt her, but I managed to get hold of a cheap 350 with a 400 turbo box.I am now in the proccess of reconditioning the 350 in order to drop it into my ute.
Anyway I have many questions to ask anyone who has done this before but Im sure most of them will be answered when I get there. The 350 came out of a HZ sedan so I am hoping she will bolt up the same,but will the tail shaft fit?
How much hassle is it changing peddles to suit the auto etc.
Any help whould be greatly appreciated.

HZ Motor conversion

Hello to all my fellow holden drivers out there. I have a couple of questions to ask and would like your opinion. All opinions taken into consideration. Now down to business. I currently have a 78 kingswood SL sedan with a midly worked red 202. The motor is on its way out. I think the head is starting to go. Mind you though i still managed to drag and beat a mates little 90s model civic. Over took him at about 140-150. Anyway i would like to drop a v8 in but don't know whether or not i should. The main reason for this is that it was once my dads (who has since passed) and don't know whether to keep it original the way he left it or still keep it original but with something like a 308. I have looked at getting my 202 rebuilt and stroking it out to a 236 with a (TYPO
