WIRING A BLUE 202 IN A HZ WAGON

Hi Guys

Ive got a blue 202 and an aussie 4spd gearbox out of a vc commodore and ive managed to put it in my hz kingswood with the red motor wiring harness and dizzy from the kingswood and i can get it to run when i have the two wires on the varijet carby connected to power but it runs really rough and coughs and backfires. Ive tried searching the web and oldholden for a blue 202 wiring diagram, anyone got one?? and also is there any problems anyone can think of that ive missed that would be why im havin so much trouble eg wires not being connected (the carby had me stuffed for a while) or not being compatible??

HQ Wipers Working From A HZ Steering Column?

Hi all. I took the ratty old HQ steering column out of my tunna and converted it to a HZ column. A mate did the re-wiring and we figured out everything BUT the wipers. Basically, we plugged the wiper switch on the column into the existing plug under the dash, making sure that colours matched. So essentially the wires coming from the cluster under the bonnet are the same colour as the wires from the column.

We can't figure out which wire goes where on the wiper motor. I have 6 wires .. yellow (12v when ignition on), green, light blue, dark blue, black and white. There are only 5 plugs on the wiper motor, 4 in a square cluster and one on top. Now one of the wires will be for the washer bottle, but who knows which one, and where the hell do the others go??

V8-Straight 6 brakes

Can any body tell me if there is a difference between disc & caliper size? Do the V8 brakes bolt straight on to my 3LT?

Start Motor

Hey all,

Having trouble with the old starter motor on the new engine. Got a 308 running 9.7:1 compression, and when the old girl is driven a while on a warm day and stopped at the shops or something, she is having an awful lot of trouble cranking back over. Some times I have to wait a good 30minutes before she will respond. The battery is a little lowish, but the starter motor is the original item.

Anyway, question is, what sort of powered starter motor would I require on an engine with this sort of compression ? Looking at getting a hi-torque starter (nothing to outrageous), but just wondering the pro's/con's.

VL HEAT GAUGE

I have a VL sedan and every time I go up a hill (will air-con on) the heat gauge tells me its sitting just over the half way mark and up to 3/4. Is this normal? I just got a new radiator, thermostat and clutch fan to try and fix the problem, but the gauge is still registering 1/2 to 3/4. Could it be just something simple - the gauge not working properly? or do I need to replace the gauge?
