Blue head on a red block.

What is involved in fitting a head from a blue 3.3 to a red engine block?
Do the water and oil galleys correspond and are there any modifications needed to adapt it
to the red block?

Cheers, Mick

48 - FJ Wipers

Hello all;

Would someone let me know how to operate the vacuum wipers on a FJ - Is it a pull or twist on switch?

The diagram of the Trico unit on Holdenpedia shows as a pull type operation - is this correct?

Thanks for any advice!

PCV thoughts.

I have triple Dellortos on our EH.
The PCV connection on our EH is in the manifold for the front carby about 1" from the head. The manifold doesn't have a balance tube connecting the the three runners (one for each carby).
Would having the PCV only connected to the front two cylinders (1 and 2) so close to the head make the front two cylinders run leaner than the other four, considering that it is sucking air from the rocker cover?
I know the PCV runs to the manifold on many stock motors, but a stock manifold is under virtually constant vacuum from all cylinders so it would even out the air from the PCV.
I have two possible solutions:
