Rebuilt 179 HP motor spewing water from the radiator & blowing white smoke :(

Hey fellas. I'd recently just rebuilt my old holden 179 motor, and I'm using a brand new commodore copper radiator. I start the motor up dead cold with the water level full and cap off. It'll seem ok for like 2-3 minutes and literally spews out water like a bloody fire hydrant had been hit from the side of the road with a car. It does this and loses about 4-5 litres literally within seconds. There seems to be what looks like white smoke out of the exhaust. There's no water in the oil, however.

Where on the carburetor of Holden HQ is the throttle stop screw?

Hello,

There is a mention to the throttle stop screw on the page 40 of "the Holden 6 series HQ-HJ". But there is no photo of it in the book. So I can't adjust idling of the HQ engine. Please help me.

Kind regards
