186 engines

Hi, I have two red six cylinder engines!
They both have 186 cast ointo the side of the block.
One has the engine number 186A144001, can someone tell me if this engine is pre April 1967, ie steel crank?
the second engine has the number V70969P as the engine number! Can anyone tell me what date this engine would have been manufactured or what model Holden it would have been in?

Thanks heaps and cheers for now,
Mick.

Gday boys n girls

I just put a deposit on a vt s1 gts.

It's in a car yard in qld unregistered. They're gonna get a rwc n sell it to me with six months rego. I have to pay stamp duty.

I'm wondering if theres a better way round it to avoid wasting money getting it regod in wa.

Don't know much about this. Maybe I just have to pay it so they can sell it with the extended warranty??
I think I'll call the rta qld n wa tomorrow.

Any help would be appreciated

way out there second strike ignition idear

an idear i got to use 2 bim024 modules 2 coils. will 2 modules run of 1 magnetic pick up. if so is there and way to have a very very short time delay device on the second coil so you have a second spark after the first coil fires. if it could be done would the 2 coils get damage as both would feed in to the one dizzy spark input.

Torana diff upgrade

Hi all, this has no doubt been raised before, but I'm a bit new to this. What's a good and hopefully economical way upgrade the rear end in my LX 308. I would like to keep the Torana stud pattern with LSD and have a ratio similar to my existing 2.78:1
I don't need a 9" and don't need to do linelocks and burnouts to enjoy driving [old fart] but the old banjo is a bit frail. if anyone has something suitable for sale I would like to hear from you.
Thanks in advance, Mal

Hey Michael...or anyone else...

Likable or likeable? Which one's more correct?
I'd be curious to see if your answer is the same as mine/our's.

Thanks...Tim.

HR Headlight and ignition barrel removal difficulties

Hi guys,
I am having some real difficulty removing the headlight switch and the ignition barrel from my HR. I am looking at swapping the premier woodgrain finish to the standard silver dash plates and instrument cluster surround so need to remove both barrel and switch. I have looked at the instructions given in holdenpedia and that all seems straight forward but I am still struggling to remove them both.

Headlight switch: should be as easy as pressing in the button at the bottom of the assembly and removing the switch button and then nut, but I can not get the button to release the switch...

The ignition barrell: I have pressed a pin into the hole in the barrell when the key is turned onto accessories but nothing is going is really budging..

HQ GTS wheels x 5

HQ GTS rims, 5 of, will obviously suit HJ HX HZ & WB.

I have had them sandblasted and powdercoated satin black, with new valves and caps.

There are 4 brand new chrome dress trims, and the tyres are about 85%.

Located in Oakey QLD (west of Toowoomba) but can ship or help with delivery/pick up. $1000 for all 5.

If you are interested in them (with or without tyres) please email me at statesman383@gmail.com or alternatively call or SMS on 0413 711 940.

Thanks, Joe

HR bogged, towed out and now steering troubles

OK, so dumb dad got the family into the HR for a nice drive on the dirty, muddy road behind our house. Loads of fun until we got stuck turning up a hill, wheels spinning, going nowhere....

We found a friendly guy with a 4WD to give us a tow out....

I could find no obvious tow points on the front so looped some rope around the axle on both sides (avoiding obvious steering links) and we were out in no time. Thanks 4WD guy.
