heart transplant

hi all posting this question purely coz i think someone else here would have already been down this road. i have a hr ute, and i want to change the engine. there is currently a red 186 in it with what i think is a yella terra head (stage unsure). i also have a 202 in the shed. now i will be rebuilding either way ( cams,rings,pistons,rockers etc) should i bore the 186 to a 192 and add the good stuff or should i focus on the 202? maybe even find a VK fuel injected 202, however would this mean alot of alterations?. also could the head off the 186 go on the 202 would this be a good idea?

Rims for early Holden 4sale

Image: 

Hi Guy's....... Hope you all have a great New year's!!!!
If anyone on here is following a set of early Holden mags on eBay [http://cgi.ebay.com....|link]
Maybe these will take your fancy? They are BRAND NEW!!! CSA 13X7's that came with my EH Ute. I have put all commodore running gear/brakes etc in mine so have no need for these.
The set on eBay are at $305 and still has 3 days to go!!!
The off-sets are .... from the outside edge of the rim to the mounting surface 110mm, from the mounting surface to the inside of the rim 92mm.
The one in the pic above has NOT been polished!!!!! that's the way it came out of the box. These mags have NEVER had a tyre fitted and also come with BRAND NEW wheel nuts.
Will suit EH (have test fitted to a HR front end with disc's) and all the way back to FE? upto HG etc..... Get in before I put them on eBay.
I'm in QLD but bus freight is good to southern buyers, I'm asking $350 for them. Can get me at exlo8@bigpond.com
Again these are brand new, never fitted and have been in storage for OVER 16 year's!!! They have chrome centre caps but have poxy "Mr Wheel" logo......... A trip to your local tyre place or printer and you can have what ever sticker you want!!
I always offer my gear here first, my V6 kit for HQ-WB was offered here for around $300 and went on eBay for $490 + postage......... any takers for these rims???
Again get me at exlo8@bigpond.com
Cheer's

odd speedo's

G'day, I was showing my fb to the young apprentis at work and he asked me something I had never noticed before in my 30 years of owning fb's and ek's, The 10 mph number on the speedo is printed backwards as in 01, so you have 01, 20, 30, and so on. I was wondering if anybody else has notice this.

48-215 Extractors!!

Here's the finished job!!.
I posted a "starting off" about 4 weeks back, these were finished just before we knocked off for Christmas.
The exhaust bloke at work built em' for me....I was the bloke who held bits while he worked his magic.
Yes the 3" out-let is a tad to big for the old 132!!, this will be redused back, BUT first me thinks I'll fire it up with the stractors' only...just because I can!!
Q-ball.

Mathew Wade

Couldnt get the Email tag at the bottom of your last comment to work. Went to your shed site and could not get an email adress. Mine is smoten@Impulse.net.au. We were talking about banjo/10 bolt diff. Just been out to the ute again and counted the bolts holding the cover plate on the back of the differential there are 10. That means its a 10 bolt diff doesnt it??
I'm not much use at old Holden's though. I really dig the HZ tonner ive got. Ive also got a Courier Turbo diesel ute which I need for transpoting the son and his mates as well as stuff for the vineyard an winery. Ive got a Goggomobile (not the Dart) as well which my dad gave me when I was 10 years old (I'm now 47) and he regave it to me 3 months ago as he needed the room in his shed for his cars. Thats another story.
Anyway if you could email me the pics etc Id appreciate it.

wiring diagram

Can anyone post a VK wiring diagram, provide a link, or direct me as to how to get onto one. I've looked in holdenpedia, checked my local libraries. The book stores are shut for new years, so all are no help.
Cheers.
