Hey all.Just wondering if there is any way to connect one of the new auto transmission boxs to a 253,Can they work mechanically or do they require the engine electronics and the engine from the car they came out on?

202 blue motor

My son and I are rebuilding a WB ute, we have rebuilt a standard bore and have now discovered it has corrosion and is buggered. We are chasing a blue 6 cylander engine preferably original size bore in the Hunter Region if possible. We are willing to travel for the right engine. Thanks for any help.

Which motor?

I
Hi,
i am considering updating the Holden Red Motor (179) that is in my 1974 Series 3 Land Rover. I would like to fit a 202, mainly for more low down pulling power.
Which is the best 202 to go for....Red, Black or Blue? what year, and why?

Thankyou and cheers for now,
Mick.

Electric Water Pump lifespan

For anyone interested I've finally replaced the Davies, Craig electric water pump I put on my car, it developed a bearing noise of some sort and began to leak water intermittently. Picked up a new one with digital controller (mine still had the old analog controller) off ebay for $250, and the new one is alloy and 115 litres per min where my old one was 80 and plastic.

So here it is finally - 7.5 years it lasted, the one in the wifes car is still going strong but it is 2 years younger. I can't answer how long in hours of activity or miles the car did in that time but the wifes car does more and is daily driven so when I need to replace it we will see a better indication of the items lifespan.

diff ratios

Good evening everyone.......I have a diff for an EK sedan (i think) and I am trying to work out it's ratio by matching part numbers, but this doesn't match with my nasco master parts catalogue. stamped on the outside of the crown wheel is holden then 7407396 KK and a 1/4 of a turn around there is a ground area with 21569 H5 engraved in. Can anybody help? Did the sedans have a different ratio to utes and panel vans? is the ratio stamped in a different spot?

Reproduction EH Fuel Tank

Can anyone recommend companies on the east coast that sells re-production fuel tanks to suit old holdens? I'm looking for a replacement stock tank for my EH sedan before I consider any repairs to the existing one.

Radiator Mount Location

Hi guys

Second silly question. I stripped my 1 ton 18 months ago and for some reason didn't take any photos of the radiator support and how it sits on the rubber mounts. I've now got a new set of rubber mounts and for the life of me can't figure out where they're positioned.

Are they either side of the chassis or either side of the radiator support? Does the big half go on top or bottom? Gregorys manual doesn't show them and a 6 hour search for pics on Goole didn't find anything useful. Seems no one takes pics of new mounts and their position.

Any help appreciated

Easiest way to line up a door

Hi guys, I have been fighting with the drivers door on the wagon for ages, I just can't get it lined up right. I have probably spent 4 or 5 days over the years trying to get it just right. I even managed to snap the heads off the bolts in frustration! The problem I have is, if the door appears plumb across the shoulder, it would rub on the front quarter panel upon opening. (and yes, the front Quarter is positioned well) Does anyone know of a trick to align these doors easily and effectively? I'm afraid I might need to pull the front panels off and start again. :-(
