202 rockers tapping on cover - What sorta cam lift would do that?

Hey fellas,

I've recently rebuilt an old 202 at 40thou, and it's got an unknown camshaft in it. I've ran a red head on there with adjustable rocker gear, but more recently switched to a 12 port head with fixed rockers. Both heads I'd had issues with rockers hitting underneath the rocker covers and impingement marks were evident. I've used factory red, then black rocker cover and even an aftermarket redline one to no avail using 2 x rocker cover gaskets. I've since just bought an aussiespeed tall rocker cover, but my question is this:

idle fast cam of HQ Holden

Hello Friends,
I write you here for the first time. I use in Japan now an coverted engine of Holden (HQ 202 Red motor) in my car from England. I bought the car in Sydney from the previoous user after his(?) converting the engine and imported it to Japan. There is a Problem about the carburettor (BXV-2 of Stromberg ) of its engine. Namely fast idle cam is not functioning. The RPM of the engine is almost the same (650) at the choking as at the non-choking. I think it must be over 1000 at the choking.

Starter motor issues

My 6cyli vc commodore has starter motor issues. They are embarrassing me and driving me insane. I cannot work out how to fix it. Iโ€™ve been through 3 starter motors new and they all did the same thing. Tick tick tick when trying to start the car. I get out with a hammer bash the solanoid then it might start. I usually have to enlist help the when one taps tthe solanoid and I start it it starts first click normally. I ditched the new starter motors those smaller high torque types for a old original type. Bosch. Same [Naughty Pottyword]. Iโ€™m at tethers end with it.

Saw this recently in one of the bushfire affected areas. Wonder if they can be rebuilt after being burnt out, or does the steel lose its strength?
Sad sight, but their house was saved.

Anyone from Daylesford?

Anyone from Daylesford area that might be able to help me out, by doing a drive by of a property? Friend of ours, had her dropkick hubby shoot through, took both cars and sold one and possibly is driving the other, The thing is, he sold his car and has kept hers, so technically its a stolen car, was hoping someone might be able to drive by and see if its at a property on the outskirts of Daylesford.

Bit of a long shot i know, but dont hurt to ask LOL

Cheers

Les
