Timing chain

G'Day

Striping down my 308, noticed the two dots on the timing chain cogs do not point towards one and other at the closest position, aren't they supposed to?

Excuse my ignorance, first time i'm rebuilding a 308

138 Question

Guys,

Got a spare single barrel Strommy sitting in the shed. It's in better knick than the one I have on the EK... HOWEVER, it has a larger base-plate than the original one. I was spewing. I really want to put it on the EK (it came off the EH), but the bastard doesn't fit.

Any advice ?

HQ GTS 4 door 308 engine date code

G'day again, my mate has had a look at the engine block date code on his 308. It has 19F3 with the hand on the five. Can someone tell us when this engine was made, comes out of HQ GTS 4 door 308 built 5/73. Trying to determine if it is the original engine, as stated by the previous owner. All help, once again, greatly appreciated.

Wiring of fans

G'Day

Finally got around to getting some au thermo fans today. It seems my radiator has the top hose on the drivers which is exactly the opposite of where they should optimaly be for the offset of the fans.

After some searching on here i think i'll end up making a cut out in the fans, for my bottom tank out of what i believe is the top of the fans as they were fitted in the au's.

Std or HV oil pump question

I have had a 308 rebult. It is 40th over size, L34 spec heads and mid cam. The engine builder used a HV oil pump as he recommended the use of HV pump. At this stage I have not fired the engine over.

However by accident I have found some posts on various sites that state that HV oil pumps should not be used on Holden engines for various reasons. Before I ask him to justify the use of HV over a std pump, I wish to know your views on this. I am sure that there are pros and cons on this. Should I remove the HV pump and install a std pump?

Thanks

How much oil in a Trimatic

I have a rebuilt trimatic with a std converter and I need to know how much oil needs to used to bring the transmission to a level which is safe enough to start the engine. I also have a rebuilt engine 308 that will need to be strated for the first time and run in the cam. Therefore I need to safely run both the engine and transmission without doing damage.

Thanks
