Wiring Woes

As the story goes... Over the Xmas break I finally have time to fix the fire hazard that is the wiring in my Car...

Ran into a couple of woes...

1/ Headlight Wiring on a Twinlight front. Under high beam operation, are all 4 lights supposed to be on? Which lights (inner or outer) are supposed to be your high beams?

2/ Temperature Gauge in a GTS Dash, she doesna move capt'n and I would like to know if there is a way to test the sender/gauge so I can work out where the fault is?

Thanks for your help.

Regards
- Adam

Yella Terra

Hi,

Hope you can help. I've bought a second hand Yella Terra stage 3 head for my holden red 173 motor. I'm also adding a 350 Holley and extractors. Firstly the standard spark plugs don't fit. What type should I use? Secondly the stock rocker pivots are secured by a 5/16" bolt. The yella terra head has 3/8" studs. The stock rocker pivots don't fit as the diameter of the stud is too big for the hole in the rocker pivot. Do I need to go to roller rockers or is there some way to use the stock rockers or is there a yella terra rocker piviot that will fit the larger diameter studs? I'm on a bit of a budget and thought that I could go roller rockers as the next phase. Is it possible to have the hole in the pivot machined out to 3/8"? Shoud the torque on the nut be varied?

What have I done?

Hey fellas,
I've just replaced a blown head gasket on the HR and now I cant get it to start.
It's got a new battery and starter motor, so don't think that's the problem.
I turn the key and it just cranks very slowly, the motor is very difficult to turn over by hand. I'm thinking (but hope I'm wrong) that something is wrong in the bottom end but don't know where to start.. It's a red 202 by the way.
Any help appreciated,

Andrew

Crank Upgrade

Hi ive been looking for a strong crank for my 202,I cant find a after market one so i was wondering which one of the 202s has the strongest crank.I know a blue motor comes out with a strong crank and star fire rods but is that all the blue motors.If so does the black motor come out with same crank and rods as the blue motor?And would any one know what the crank and rods are made of?Any comment would be greatly appreciated.
