Holden 179HP Carbie Options?

Hey Fellas,
I've really started to rebuild my old HP motor for my old girl, and just wondering some carbie options?...

The motor has had a 202 re-bore "so is essentially a 186?", and crow 35667 cam with new JP Helical timing gears. I've got a HEI setup for it and a worked 9 port head which will be running roller rockers. The head has 1-3/4" Intake Valves and 1-1/2" Exhaust valves. Valves are stainless steel ones. I've also got extractors to fit upto it.

Decoding the ID plates on a WB Ute

Hi All,

This is my first post to the site, so hoping someone can help me out.

I have a WB Ute, and I am trying to de-code the ID plates.

I have started with the small plate located on top of the firewall, but I have become confused as the plate states it's a D (1974) but the WB's didn't come out until 1980.

Can someone help me, plates code is below.
