Holden EH 179HP Carbie?

Hi all,
I'm looking to restore an old EH holden running a 179HP motor. The motor itself is just stamped EH, but I am wondering what the factory carbie is for one of these. Is it by chance one of those tall single barrel strombergs? or did they come out with something different?

Thanks In Advance!

179 EH stromberg carby number 23 3003 or 23 3006. Both will suit auto or manual.

FJ Sedan, FJ Ute, all Steel.

BXUV2 Stromberg, numbers as above. It's the tall single barrel one you describe.
I might have one in the shed and a manifold if you need one.
There was nothing special about the 179 HP motor.
It was just the first (with the 149) series of the red six.
The motor shouldn't have a stamp that says EH. it should have HP cast in the block facing the alternator/generator. The engine number should be M with numbers after it.

Old is good.

As David said HP on block for 179 if it does indeed say EH would be keen to see a pic of it
