X2 Twin Strommies

Were the twin carbies fitted to the X2 179 and 186 engines the same as the single carby used on the stock engines, but with venturi restrictors and re-jetted, or were they a carby with a smaller sized venturi?

Cheers, Mick.

HR parts search

I've been searching for parts for my HR rebuild. Found this on Gumtree, been sitting in a Garage for 20 years waiting for me so I bought the whole car. Only engine and gearbox missing. A treasure trove for me! Got it for a third of what all the individual parts are worth. All usual rust spots done, subframe & crossmember in excellent condition.

Quick 64

Well I finally got it going. Had a few dramas with the brand new quick fuel carb. The o’ring on the needle and seat was wrong and there was a spec of zinc plating holding the needle open. All fixed now. Happy days ahead.

CHROME PLATING PLASTIC PARTS

Hi all,
Has anyone had any experience or able to offer any advice about chrome plating plastic ?
The chrome has all peeled off of my 1977 Chev Caprice grill (think HJ Statesman) and I'm not sure what to do with it.
Any advice or info would be appreciated.

HQ-HZ Alloy Girlock Caliper Dimensions

Hi All,
Just wondering if anyone can help me with a particular dimension on the front calipers on HQ-HZ when they are the alloy Girlock type. I need to know the measurement from the mounting holes to the top of the caliper body at the highest point to understand how high off the disc the will sit. I currently have cast iron PBR calipers which have clearance issues in my application and I want to know whether the alloy Girlock calipers will be a ‘silver bullet’ for my problem before I run out and buy a pair!
Thanks in advance,
Mark

202 questions

Hey everyone i posted awhile ago about my blue 202 not running right. I've got another intake gasket coming today, and while I pulled the manifold and extractors off I noticed that the port for the last cylinder (n.6?) In the manifold has fuel in it and none of the others do is this normal? Also can see it in the actual head that it's wet there. (Hope this makes sense haha).

Sorry I haven't got an account as it's not working could be my emails or phone I might be young but not that tech knowledgeable haha.
Also attached pic of me ute for those interested

EJ Holden Pinion Angle

I suspect my pinion angle might be a bit out,get a lot of vibration and gear jump out only going uphill. Thinking of trying some wedges at the back. Where can you buy wedges suitable for old Holdens, are they pretty universal?

Supply and demand.

Suxuki Australia was only allocated 1,100 of the new Jimny for the first year of production.
Eight hundred were pre-sold before any landed in Australia. Which left 300 cars for all the Suzuki dealers in Australia to sell for 12 months.
The have a recommended drive away price of $23,990. Most places wanted $28,990.
I just saw this used one in Sydney for $35,990: https://classicthrot...
I believe that is what my economics meant when he talked about supply and demand.
