Holden 179 choking out

Hi,

I donโ€™t know a lot about engines. My old hr has a 179 in it. Was running a year or so ago, now I have gone to start it. Recharged battery, chucked in some fuel etc. will turn over and run for about 10 seconds then just stalls/chokes out. Any ideas? Try cleaning carby?
Cheers..... Haz

hard to start torana 202 uc

have had this problem for some time, decided to do some thing.I started by giving carby a good clean even the throat with 900wet using petrol as lubricant,make sure you take the main jet out as well as the metering jet which is above main jet(it just pushes out).Clean all parts,blow jets out with compressed air including all gally's (air holes in body of carby).

Window mechanisms - HQ

Hi.
I've read the post in the Holdenapeadia and am aware that the front windie glass is unique to HQ. My questions are: will HJ+ glass and mechanisms fit into a HQ door; and second, will HQ glass fit into HJ+ mechanism?

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks.
