file back rings and not file back rings

I'm looking for new rings for my 202 i'm building and found a set of new ACl rings on Ebay. I asked the guy for .060 oversize and he got back to me saying

"the race series are file back rings, the ones I can get are not file back"

Whats the difference between the two and would you recomend that I get the file back ones or will it not realy matter for a streeter. Its not going to be a stock 202 ut its not a race motor by any means.

Thanks heeps for any help

James

Nah true...

A few days ago I was having some work done at my local garage. A blonde came in and asked for a seven-hundred-ten.

We all looked at each other and another customer asked, 'What is a seven-hundred-ten?'

She replied, 'You know, the little piece in the middle of the engine, I have lost it and need a new one..'

She replied that she did not know exactly what it was, but this piece had always been there.

The mechanic gave her a piece of paper and a pen and asked her to draw what the piece looked like.

eh wagon

This is my girlfriends father's first car. He parked it about 20 years ago. Just forgot about it. I'm thinking about asking him about it. Its got a rip on the front left hand guard. Typical farmer, left and forget.

Gas problems....

Does anyone here have a dedicated Gas only car??? Its just that I am having trouble filling my Gas tank. I hook it up, screw it on but takes about 20mins to get a litre into my tank. Its not the pump at the servo cause I moved away an watched someone else fill up with no problem. Has anyone else had a problem like this??? Any help appreciated...

EH VH44 BRAKE BOOSTER DYAPHRAM SIZE????

I beleive my 64 Holden EH's VH44 Brake booster needs a new diaphram. When I brake the engine loses power. I can also hear a sucking air sound when I brake.
The only markings the booster has is PAT NO. 260550, and the eh has drum brakes....so after some research i have figured out its a VH44.
Now I believe i need to replace the diaphram....I have found a place that stocks them but they have 4 types......VH44R, VH44J, VH44B, VH44JA......I have no idea which one to get.....i thought there would only be one type.
Does anyone know what these codes mean???
Thanks

Valve spring swap.

G'day you fullas, David from NZ here, been checking your site for info for years and finally decided to join the masses. I'm about to swap the old 179 for a 202, I'll be using my Yella Terra head but 1 outer valve spring broke a while ago. I replaced it with a std coil off a spare 173, I may as well replace the lot before the 202 goes in. What I need to know is... did Yella Terra use 1 brand of coils? I bought the head new around 1990. I measured the coils when I had it apart but can't find the dimensions from YT (YT 4327). Crow do a similar item (CC 4327) but they are different sizes.
