202 Gaskets

Hi All,

My HZ ute is leaking a fair bit of oil and it looks like its coming out from the rocker cover gasket. I found some of these on e-bay but just wondering if that job can be done at home.. By the looks of it taking out the rocker cover and replacing the gasket shouldnt do anything bad for the engine, am i right?
My automatic gearbox is also leaking a bit. Could it be from a gasket as well around this area? If so where? I'll try to put some photos up. A mate went ahh dont worry about it these old cars are all like that but he doesnt have much experience for that matter.

Polishing

Just wondering how you guys get into all the small nooks and crannies when polishing? I've just been using a bit of terry towel and it works well on larger pieces but is there an easier way of getting into smaller corners? Or do you just persevere with the towel?

Cheers Guys.

HD CLUTCH

Ello Ello,
My clutch has decided to [Naughty Pottyword] itself around lately and I'm not very impressed when it stalls at the very front of the long line of cars at the lights. I spoke to my father bout it and he said that it might need a bleed and drain or something like that but ... so confused. What do I have to do? It feels like it isn't disengaging and it will even drive when the clutch is in fully sometimes. Also the only way to start the car after its stalled is to pump the clutch quite a bit and then it starts goin ... so ... how do i do it? lol

What cam and how much variance is exceptable?

Measuring the cam lobes on a cam I pulled out of a 202 I found the following [human hand and digital verniers].
Exhaust lobe base from. 1.160 to 1.164 [variance = .004]
Exhaust lobe overall height from.
1.445 to 1.454 [variance .009]
Intake lobe base from. 1.161 to 1.164 [variance .003]
Intake lobe overall. 1.445 to 1.454 [variance .009]
how exceptable are theres figures?There seems to be no pattern. Is there any way of telling what this cam is? [apart from cam doctor]

horsepower of a red 202?

hello
just wondering... recently bought a red six motor (202) with a 350 holley, mild cam, extractors, and a few redline parts, pushing through a heavy sagnaw four speed box, and I know this isn't a lot of information to work from but what sort of horsepower SHOULD it have?
Brand new it should have 109bhp (81kw) at 3900rpm but if I was to get it blueprinted and with the above parts what should it have?
a few guesses would be appreciated
cheers...

Rear main seal

Hi guys,
not happy! I have a leaky rear main seal. Is it possible to re sleeve and use a rubber seal? I know you can do this on the Fords. The rope seal is bloody annoying and a big job to replace. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. BTW the motor is a 179 out of an HD.

Cheers,
Dan

Wonky wheel

I hope the rear wheel doesn't look like that in real life! (although admittedly I would accept the car anyway)

FOR SALE - SA: 4cyl VC 85,000ks

Image: 

Howdy ppls. Unfortunately I have to sell of one of my cars as I need some more space to work on my boat.

It's a VC SL commodore with a 4cyl Starfire which only has 85,000ks on the clock, trimatic and with after market AC.

I bought the car as another project knowing the motor had no compression so I took the head off and found that there was a whole in the first piston. I was planning on swapping over the motor with another starfire but now have to fix the boat instead.

Holley 350 or Weber 34 ADM

Alrighty, I've searched through multiple questions, holdenpedia and searched as far as I can go and I still didn't find a definitive answer to my question.

If I were to change my carby on my VH 3.3 blue block 202, which would be better, the Holley 350 or the Weber 34 ADM from the XE Falcon?

That includes how easy is it to hook up the environmental safety stuff and what kind of air cleaner would i need to put on it, or take the one from the falcon or stay with the one I have.
