Wheel Help for HQ

Got a chance of picking up some new rims for the hq but not sure if they will fit as they are out of town.

I looked up Holdenpedia which says the stud pattern is...

HQ - WB PCD: 5 on 120.65mm (4.75"), Offset 30 mm Towards the inside of the rim for standard offset wheels.

The details I got from the owner of the wheel are

PCD: 5-4.75"
HUB: 3.07
BS:6.4
Offset: 35

I see the PCD is the same so can anyone confirm if these rims would fit?

Any help greatly appreciated.

VK 308 just won't start. Advice needed.

Got 2 big problems with by vk 308 that are driving me insane:

1. Got back from overseas (1 month), car wouldn’t start, solenoid just clicked, battery almost flat. Replaced starter motor with a hi-torque version and heavy duty battery. Same problem. Thing is, running screwdriver between ignition and battery terminals starts it fine. AND it will intermittently turn over. I’ve also replaced the ignition wire connecting to the solenoid as it was frayed. Does this mean I have a faulty ignition switch? Would this make it turn over intermittently, but most of time just click?

1981 VH COMMODORE RED 6 CLINDER MYSTERY MOTOR ???

Hi all , Ive just purchased a 1981 VH Commodore Sedan fitted with a 'RED' 6 Cylinder Motor. The Mystery is 'what' is it !!! On the Left Hand Side of the Engine Block on a raised block section similar th HP Motors is the Number '1' Only. The Number '1' is in the same position as if it would be on a 161 or 173. It has definatelly 100% guaranteed not had any other numbers ground off as original paint is dull but still intact. They just have never been on there from factory , just that lonesome number '1' on that full sized raised block section. What is it , never seen this before ????

VK 308 driving me crazy

Ok, so I'm having two very weird problems with my VK 308:

-new hi-torqure starter motor, new battery, but it will only turn over occasionally. If i stick a screw driver between the ignition terminal and the battery connection it turns over fine. I've replaced the ignition connection wire as it was frayed. What could be causing this? Why would it only work intermittantly? Ignition relay?

-when car finally turns over, it won't start. Has relatively new leads, plugs and ignition coil. coil seems to be getting a biggish spark, but the leads are only producing a weak spark. Should i upgrade to a HEI dizzy (coil in cap type)? What else could cause a weak spark? it has a lumpy cam so it's always been hard to start , but this is rediculous.

FX Holden ute brake upgrade

I am trying to find out some info in regards to brake setup on a fx ute with a 202 and auto. It has a hr frontend with Torana disc and Torana diff with drums. I have a vh40 booster and still using the original master cylinder. Is there another setup that can be used without major changes? Or is there a dual mastercylinder that can be substituted for the original one? I am best to be contacted by email gjkubler@hotmail.com.
Thanks

Quadrajet idle adjustment

Gaday
My idle is running a bit high. I'm not sure how to adjust it, or if it's the problem. It's a Rochester quadrajet. it's strange, seems to be idling at 1200 most of the time but sometimes up to 1800. Could this be a problem with the auto choke? If someone could explain what to do to bring the idle down that would be great. Thanks
