RE: Conrod bolts

"Quote"

"You can't just change the rod bolts, when you change rod bolts you need to have the rods closed and honed by a machine shop."

I wasn't aware of this, I thought you just pressed the old bolts out and the new ones go straight in? What is the process to do this?

HZ petrol tank and fuel & temp gauges

gday all,

if any of you boys haven't seen a HZ petrol tank removed with 40 years of road grease removed, then here it is. i needed to remove it to service the sender, so i had to drop it. it looks galvanised and in pretty good condition really. btw, it took me about 5 hours to get all the crap off it.

i'm gonna spray it with a cuppla coates of 'motospray rust converter primer/sealer'. then finish it with 'wurth bitumen underbody sealer'.
are you boys happy with this combo?

conrod bolts for 202

Just a question, are you still able to buy stock conrod bolts for a 202 or are the ARP bolts the only option?

I have a 202 here that is already 60 thou over, bores still look good and have the hone marks but would like to inspect the bearings as it has probably been sitting for a long time.

I don't really want to spend the $$$ for the arp ones as this will just be a short term solution and have heard reusing the current bolts is not a good idea as they stretch.

So are there any other options for rod bolts?

Car Shows in Sydney

Maybe one for Bryan. It seems car shows in Sydney, mainly the west side of the harbour, is few and far between these days. What's your thought's. With Pinky's site no longer updated, the only site I know of is https://www.uniqueca.... Is there any other site with updated info? Eight weeks on holidays and nearing the end and not one car show I went to.

HG 186 Trimatic to Manual

Hi All.
My HG Van now has the sub frames reattached and the front suspension will go back in next week.
It was last fitted with 186 trimatic but should be 161 and 3 on the tree. I have a 161 already but don't have a manual column and pedal box along with the clutch, gear linkages and 3 speed box.

Bolt size

Hi. Are the gearbox/transmission mounting points the same size on all red sixes and wats the bolt size? Iโ€™m assuming there could be a variance in length dependent on the box used?
Thanks in advance
