Attention gurus: New motor troubles, pinging above 3000rpm constantly

I have recently rebuilt my 202 into a warm 202, and have been having troubles with pinging ever since day one. It drives fine under 3000, but when its under load (over 3000 in top gear) or going up a steep hill, It starts to ping constantly until i back off. I'm running 98 octane premium so fuel is not an issue.

Its a new motor completely rebuilt, head is spotless no carbon buildups.
Specs are: 202 bottom end reground crank, 60 thou overbore pistons, block has been decked numerous times i expect, yella terra stage 3 186 style kidney chamber high compression head double valve springs. xu1 camshaft wade cams grind 373. new hydraulic lifters, new standard volume oil pump, everythings new.
Carby is 34adm webber with aftermarket air filter, bosch HEI dizzy.

Red Gear Box Floor Shift

Hi wombat and all

here's another picture of the gear box - it is a floor shift - so as I understand I have a

3 speed syncro box from a HK?

Hope this picture helps

Motor and gear box are from an fx that I've purchased - thing is the red gear box is connected to a grey (ej) motor through what I understand to be an 'adapter plate' Why would they have done this?

thanks for help and advice

Type of Red Gear Box and Oil

Hi Wombat and others

Just following up on previous post (copied below) trying to identify red gear box type - have now learnt how to post a pic !

Hope this photo helps - any chance you can advise what gear box it is and clarify exact or best type of gear oil to use

many thanks

PREVIOUS POST

Its a 3 speed

On one side is inscribed 'Holden 10 9938391'

On the other is from what I can tell

'7433725'
'Holden'
'117 9'

mmmm the 99 number is a late number and the 74 number is early.. so i may suggest it is a 3 speed all syncro box if you can post a pic that would help ..

yes fill till it starts to drip out filler plug on the side use hypoy 80/90w gear oil..

A all syncro box takes 1.7 litres or 3.75 pints.

Thems the brakes

As each year ticks by my new Holden becomes older - and bits wear out. I've done over 70k in my SSZ VZ Crewman now. The front pads are finally due to be replaced. No need to take it to Holden - I'll do it myself. Cheap easy fix - after they are only brake pads.

Hmmm the price reflects otherwise! The retail on the front pads for an SSZ VZ is $388 inc gst!!! Bloody sheep shaggers are having a go at this Aussie I thought - so I rang my old mates at the dealership in the land of OZ. Long story short - its actually a bit cheaper here in NZ.... Go figure.
There were aftermarket pads available cheaper - but not much cheaper and it was pads only nothing else.

Shameless Plug - (free advertising :p)

Just thought I'd give a shameless FREE plug to a website I visit fairly regularly.

Seeing as Rusty has it hidden away in the top right hand corner of the page as:
"Help oldholden.com by getting a 2010 Member Pack",
I thought I'd show off the patches, and new round stickers, this is just some of what you'll find in the new members pack.

The 50c coin, is just to give an idea of the size of the patches, and stickers.

Haven't stuck them on yet, but I reckon they look trick :)

LED Tail lights fitted

I have now fitted the LED tail lights. Any suggestions for what color I should paint the tray? I'm having a metallic blue cab & white interior. I was thinking white? Im getting jarrah for the tray. Does anyone know how much jarrah would cost to do my tray out of it?

Thanks

My 61 ek special station sedan (Wagon)

This is my Ek wagon, it as an original car. It has a full history, it has a original shell service log books and a GMH maintenance protection plan. It even has the original nasco plastic seat protectors on the rear seat. It has only had two owners since new. In the future it will be restored, as it has some minor damage

spluttering VK

G'day guys well im blown away with all the help and ideas you gave me for the spluttering. Turns out it was the coil lead to the distributor. Picture the metal prong broke off and is stuck in the distributor, its got some blue corrosion in it too, i thought it was interesting... to say the least. bosh... pfft. So i did away with that, new distributor button, new distributor cap, new v spark plugs, and new 9mm eagle leads :) cost abit... but you get what you pay for.

Badge size help?

Just wondering if anyone could tell me what model badge this "special" badge is? I believe FC? Does anyone also have measurements of the badge? I need to know so I can get the sizes correct for reproducing the dealer decal as I have someone after this one.

Cheers
Jason
