fact or fiction: hq sedan with an 's' pack ??

Im talking to an old farmer about this hq sedan he has, he might sell it to me, I've not seen it though. He said its lime green and has a tacho, I asked if it has any stripes but he said no it doesn't. I have never head of an S pack on any of the h series holdens so im wondering if its a hq ss with a 6 cyl of just a base model with an option. Very little info I know but just throwing it out there. Thanks.

EJ Engine Transplant RB25 Turbo Lekky Problems

Hoping one of you wiring gurus may be able to help,

In the middle of doing wiring for a RB25 Turbo into EJ transplant,
Using an EH wiring harness, Haver got my head around most of it,
Fuel pumps wired up and prime for 5 sec like they should, have everything i can see that needs connecting to the ecu connected.

Im getting all the right voltages at the coil packs etc, injectors are getting all the right pulses, As far as i can tell i have all the wires required for ecu to run. It cranks but wont fire....
have done all the crank angle sensor checks as per manual.

There is a slight discrepency with wiring diagram and actual harness, digram shows 6 pin plug at injectors but actual harness has an 8 pin plug

What Speedo Cog

Hi all I just had the 1st inspection on the UC for the v8. My engineer has given me a small list of 5 to fix. A factory style air cleaner,a couple of bigger washers at the back of my front seats which are from a Daewoo, a couple heat shields to protect the steering knuckle & brake line from the right extractor & my speedo reads 15% over then the actual the car is traveling so if my speedo reads 60kph the car is only doing 51kph.
Well any I'm unsure of my diff ratio but its 253 trimatic with 215/40/17 tyres with the green 21 tooth cog. So do I need 20 or 22 tooth cog.

Whats this?

Hi all,

I pulled my rocker cover off today and noticed this black smear of what I presume is oil over the inside of the rocker cover right above number 3 inlet valve(see pictures I have attached). The top of the pushrod and rocker for number 3 is also very discoloured(see pictures).

Could someone please shed some light on what this could be from? And if its causing any damage of sorts as i dont know what it is from.

I have attached some pictures for you to see.

Cheers
James

holden hz 202 jp oil pump

gday all,

i'm buying a new, standard (ie. not high volume) JP oil pump
for me hz 202 kingsy next week.

..i should've (perhaps) doen this when i did me full reco 18k kms ago but didn't think i needed to... afterall, i reco'd/replaced virtually everything else with the engine...

..but at the time (12 months ago), my machinist said that he did something to me pump and i assumed he fully reco'd it. after all this time, the machinst told me yesterday, that all he did to the pump was to drill a hole to allow better shaft lubrication to prevent the shaft from ceasing. he said this is what gmh recommended machinists do. he said he's been doing this for 25 yrs.

was this a gmh design fault? i wonder if the new JPs today have this lube drilling?

Anybody interested?

Good day, Old Holdeners.
I have lying around the shed a 173 engine, mostly complete and has travelled about 380,000 km. It came with my HJ ute when I bought it, back in May 1976. It was running well enough when I removed it to put in a 202 with a gas head and with automatic transmission. This motor and gearbox have done about 130,000 km. It came from my mother’s HJ Kingswood, which, as she (Mum, that is) grew older, used the car less and less. Hence the low mileage. I used the engine for about 7000 km. The 202 was running well when I got hold of a 253 V8, which is now in the ute.

Good day, Old Holdeners.
I have a stock 253 Hq V8 engine with a Quadrajet fitted. I’m interested to know what primary and secondary jet and secondary rod sizes other OH’ers with similar setups use,just as a street car. Presently, I am using 0.073 primary jets with 0.049 rods and CX secondary rods.
Thanks,
Richard.

Elaine needs an EH door

Elaine is the local old lady with the EH. It's the only car she has ever driven. She is a genuine battling pensioner.
If anyone between Tarre and Coffs Harbour or thereabouts has a reasonably good right hand rear door they could sell her at a reasonable price (read cheap) could you let me know and I'll pick it up for her.
Colour doesn't matter, but faded, aged Winton Red would be perfect.
I haven't got any spare doors I can give her.
A bare door would do. She can put her glass, etc in it.

EFI 5ltr

Hey holden fans,
I got a 6cyl auto HZ sedan and want to go to an injected 5ltr auto in it if possible.

Do I need an engineers certificate or other inspections to do this or can I call the RTA and tell them new engine number and I'm good to go?

Sorry for the noob quezzie.

Thanks Beamo

HX 202 Red overheating unsolved!

Hey guys I realize that there have been a few threads about this problem but still cant find an answer! My 76 HX with a 202 red keeps overheating (up to about 2 thirds of gauge). It doesnt happen so much when idling but more when driving around town and going up hills.
So far I have tried:
1) radiator got properly rodded out at a radiator place
2) thermostat has been replaced
3) engine has been flushed

Im replacing the water pump on monday although I think its unlikely to be that, and I dont think its a blown head gasket. Im hoping the engine block is not actually clogged up with [Naughty Pottyword] (rust) which would mean I would have to take the entire thing apart and acid dip it :(. Its at the mechanic at the moment but they cant figure it out! Could it be the temp sender?
