HZ Engine No Identification

Hi,
I recently purchased a HZ sedan which seems to be untouched by the one owner. I am curious to see whether the 202 is relative to the build date of the car. If someone could decipher or point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.
Build date on tag: 09-78
Engine No. QL7xxxxx
Engine date stamp: 6Dx (either a 6 or 8, need to remove oil filter)

Removing 202 from WB

G'day Brainstrust
I'm about to remove the 202 from my WB tunna. My query is that the motor is connected to the aussie 4speed with the bench seat shifter, so is it necessary to remove the whole shifter assembly with linkages to get the engine out with box attached or can the shifter come through the trans tunnel hole with a bit of wriggling and jacking up the front of the car? Having never done this before with a aussie 4speed box a bit of sage advice would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers all
Al

I’ve been away...but I’ve been busy

Been 16 years since I last raced. This ol’ girl spent most of that time in the shed at Mum and dads, bent. Straightened, rebuilt, resprayed. Now it’s the young bloke turn. Still running my tuff little 186.

Holden Related (complete the lyrics & who is it?)

So I hear this song on the wireless a few day's back, the first time in about 30 year's I reckon.
It's not this band biggest song but in my opion it was a damn fine song of my youth.
Well, the kid checked his stance and tightened his pants
And took his first step in the night
Jacko said that he'd fix him up with a girl who'd be alright
Well, he picked him up in his Sandman, they raced every red light in town
Jacko put on a real cool face but he's sweatin', there's no cops around.....

Bonnet measurements

Hi everyone
Would someone do me a huge favour please.
I'm endeavoring to fit an lx torana nose cone to my Uc but I haven't yet bought the bonnet and need the length from the rear corner to the front corner where it meets the nose cone. In other words the outside measurements of a lh or lx bonnet.
Thanks heaps

Saw this one today. Don't know what he is doing with it. It has been sitting for a while. First time I actually stopped to have a look.
