head identification

hi guys, i was wondering if anyone could help me identify a holden red 6 head that i've got.
the numbers on it read as follows:

7437395 HOLDEN G149 1 L

the guy who i got it off said it was a low comp. 186 head because it came off his 186, but now that i've spotted the "G149" on it i'm thinking that its off a 149...anyone got any ideas or know what model its off?!

cheers,
cam

Dirty Sods

(Should be a "topic section" for theiving arseholes)

Well I parked up at the Mrs place last Thursday, Left the Torana out on the road, as the oil leak makes a hellava mess on the me ladys driveway. (gotta get that fixed, stupid slushbox) Anyway, I woke up the next day, got me gears, and started to head off to work. Got to the car, and thought to myself. "Thats weird, I'm sure my passenger door was shut correctly when I left it"! So I opened the drivers door, and got in, "What the Hells my old dizzy cap on the seat for! thats suposed to live on the dash!" "Hey, whats the piece of paper from the radio (sits in the tape player) doing on the seat to" [Naughty Pottyword] me, some bastards been in my car! Dirty pricks! Front passenger door locks rooted, cant open that door from the outside, and now the driver door locks rooted to, so now I have to leave my front 1/4 window unlocked. and have to reach in through the window, and unlock the door, looks like im trying to steal it every time!

For Reaper, or others

Hey dude. I was reading your work guides, and Top effort. I'm doing a home tune up of my torrie, and was reading through some of your workguides, and the one where you wrote about a "A very basic guide to standard tuning" you talked about turning the dizzy a few degrees. (stupid question coming) When you turn the dizzy, do you turn it while the engine is running? or do you turn it, then start the engine back up, switch her off, turn it ome more, start her back up.. Or whats the go there. Can you give me some more info on this. Cheers Fella...

Rob.

Welding

I'd like to learn how to weld. My old man has an arc and oxy setup that I've used a couple of times but I'd like to learn how to do it properly. Does anyone know of any good online resources, or the best way to get some training ? I assume that TAFE would have some casual courses.
Thanks

Diff dramas

I think my diff is in the process of going, It has been increasingly noisy of late and yes it has plenty of oil. Tonight i got out under the car and tried to rotate the tailshaft by hand and when it was in gear no movement. Out of gear it had about an inch of loose play (ie rotated that much) so looks like it has had it. It is a 336 banjo and has done some ks. Anyone know a good replacement diff or diff place in Sydney.

Cheers

Stromberg CDs / Fuel Pumps

Just wondering if the LC GTR XU1 had a different fuel pump for its triple CD strombergs? After dramas with a fuel pissing holley i pulled these out of the shed and got em reco'd for use in the HR. I got a redline fuel block as well for use with them. Now im just wondering whether i'll need more fuel getting up there or not? Will the stock HR pump be fine? or maybe a later model commodore one? Anyone else have a redline fuel block as well? its a bloody big thing, just wondering where i can put it without fuel lines running everywhere....
Thanks!
