Stupid thing - brake booster check valve

Hi guys

This is a stupid question, but is there a trick to removing the brake booster check valve? Someone once said turn it either way 90 degrees and it should come out, but no matter how much I pull, turn and tug on the dam thing I ain't getting no satisfaction. I also read I should lube it first? Any ideas? Ta

Weber fuel return

Am I able to use the charcoal canister line as the fuel return line for my 34 adm weber carb that I run on my hx? Engine is a 202. I know this has been asked before, just after some more opinions.

I'm getting pretty crap fuel economy at the moment, carb has been jetted to suit and it has all been tuned properly and put on dyno etc.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

HQ Kinga Plate De-Coding

Hi Guys, I bought myself a HQ Kingswood a while back, Or so i believe it was a Kingswood. It was painted in Mustard with Black GTS Stripes and the owner told me it was a Kingswood GTS Mock, it was on 14" Steelies and just had a 202 6 in it. I've been told by some that it was a bit more than just a Kingswood however, I'm not a big Holden guy so i'm not sure. So i was wondering if anyone could spare 5 minutes to De-Code the tag that was on it for me? Thanks Guys.

Hq - Wb upper wishbone

Quick question, I have a buyer who wants hq upper front wishbones and I have a few pairs here but I've also got some on a Wb ute which will be the easiest to remove as the car is mostly stripped.

Are they all the same HQ to WB? or are the rts one different.

Cheers

VL 5L to replace 253 in HJ Tonner

Hi Guys,

So I'm looking at potentially buying this 308 (304 or whatever) for my tonner which is currently running a 253/Trimatic with a 465 Holley. The guy says he had it in his VL and he wants it gone as he went with a bigger engine, it has a 650 Holley, electric water pump, 0.020" flat tops, std. cam/crank and has done just over 10k km's since rebuild. Oh and it was in front of a trimatic.

Now I know I'd have to swap the sump and oil pick up over and probably install AU fans because of the electric water pump but is there anything else I will need to worry about? Is this gonna be too much of a pain in the a**e? Should I just wait for a good red 308 to pop up? Also he's asking $2000 ono, what's a descent offer?

I know this question has probably been asked before, sorry.

Replacing fake chrome trim

The fake chrome trim that exists within the doors and on the outer exterior has peeled off on my HG Kingswood, was wondering if any of you had any solutions in how to replace this. Hopefully without having to buy new trims, I was told that chrome tape would be the best solution.

220hp+ 202 extractors and rocker covers

Hey guys just wondering what size extractors should I get for my 202 if I'm hoping for 220+hp? 1 5/8" primaries and 2 1/4" collector?? And if anyone knows where I can buy extractors this size to suit HQ? I can only find smaller ones.

Also what's the best rocker cover to use to clear roller rockers and with a factory style breather setup/inside cover?? Tempted to buy a cheap chrome one but not sure if they're any good.. Or if I can find a spacer plate to use the stock cover?

Hopefully someone can help?

HQ SS

Hi all

I have a HQ SS in a pretty sad state but have found out recently it is all original with the original motor houndstooth trim etc etc .
The body however has a lot of rust and what I am wanting to know is do any of these reproduction mobs make a 4 door HQ body to just rebody the car , will this affect the value of the car or should I put a bit more effort into rebuilding the existing body
any help would be great to save the old girl
cheers

HJ Air Cleaner

Hi,

This has probably been covered but I couldn't find exactly what I wanted to know.

I have an HJ 202 and wanted to fit a redline chrome air cleaner. The new air cleaner doesnt have the fitting for the pipe from the rocker cover for the emissions control system. Is there any thing easy I can do to fix this or would I be better off keeping the stock setup.

Thanks for any help,
