heart transplant

hi all posting this question purely coz i think someone else here would have already been down this road. i have a hr ute, and i want to change the engine. there is currently a red 186 in it with what i think is a yella terra head (stage unsure). i also have a 202 in the shed. now i will be rebuilding either way ( cams,rings,pistons,rockers etc) should i bore the 186 to a 192 and add the good stuff or should i focus on the 202? maybe even find a VK fuel injected 202, however would this mean alot of alterations?. also could the head off the 186 go on the 202 would this be a good idea?

odd speedo's

G'day, I was showing my fb to the young apprentis at work and he asked me something I had never noticed before in my 30 years of owning fb's and ek's, The 10 mph number on the speedo is printed backwards as in 01, so you have 01, 20, 30, and so on. I was wondering if anybody else has notice this.

Mathew Wade

Couldnt get the Email tag at the bottom of your last comment to work. Went to your shed site and could not get an email adress. Mine is smoten@Impulse.net.au. We were talking about banjo/10 bolt diff. Just been out to the ute again and counted the bolts holding the cover plate on the back of the differential there are 10. That means its a 10 bolt diff doesnt it??
I'm not much use at old Holden's though. I really dig the HZ tonner ive got. Ive also got a Courier Turbo diesel ute which I need for transpoting the son and his mates as well as stuff for the vineyard an winery. Ive got a Goggomobile (not the Dart) as well which my dad gave me when I was 10 years old (I'm now 47) and he regave it to me 3 months ago as he needed the room in his shed for his cars. Thats another story.
Anyway if you could email me the pics etc Id appreciate it.

wiring diagram

Can anyone post a VK wiring diagram, provide a link, or direct me as to how to get onto one. I've looked in holdenpedia, checked my local libraries. The book stores are shut for new years, so all are no help.
Cheers.

Posi locks

I am having fun with my rocker stud posi locks. Ive done the rockers 4-5 times since having the car back on the road. Approx 500 kays.
The rocker tollerance seems to open up after a drive. Is this normal for a new engine, or are my locks crap quality? Brand unkown, came with my rockers, which are yanky made.
Ive been setting the rockers when the engine is hot every time.

Done Up HJ

About a year ago a mate of mine bought himself an old, rusty 197? HJ. It wasn't much to look at, peeled off paint and all of the wiring had to be replaced. So he started rebuilding the car from scratch (minus the engine).

A new paint job, new wiring harness (with accessories)that we made ourselves, new shoes for it, fixed susspension, tune up, and 8 months later, it looked pretty good. Still needs a little work though.
