ATTENTION KIK

Mate,

Sounds like you know a lot about cars especially Holdens and I believe a lot of the info is correct and brillant BUT dude trying being calmer and explaning everything to people in the simple terms. We all aint PRO-Mechanics and some of us (as in myself) have been trying to teach themselves everything.

Pls for my sack and for your own keep your cool because with great information and great COOL comments a smile appears on an owners face and yet another person is happy with the information provided and with the knowledge that their GREAT AUSTRALIAN HOLDEN will live on FOREVER!

Speed Concerns

Your time starts now...

I have a 'Q' for the tech's in the oldholden 'world wide wonder.' I have standard running gear thru my VH com, and was wondering what, if any specs you could tell me about exact speed at specified RMP?
I have a 202, backed by a trimatic, and followed thru to a GU4 axle (3.08). I have the feeling that at 60 I'm @ 1800 and 80 @ 2200 and so-on. On the freeway I sway between 2600 and 2800, is this too high, and can any of you techo's give me the specs? Please.

Winding Odometer Forward on a VL Commodore

Hey all, ive got an 87 VL SL manual which in the instrument display has a stupid clock instead of a tacho. I want to buy a whole new instument display unit with a tacho (for $220, anyone know of anywhere cheaper?) in it because with the car bein a manual id like to oversee what RPM it's doing, especially for those high rev situations ;) Does anyone know of how to actually wind the odometer forward or would i have to see a holden dealer? Because i would want the new one actually showing the true kms.

Better fuel economy and more power?

Hi all,

I have a red 202 in my hq that has done 9000 k's since the rebuilt. It has a 350 Holley carb with one of those 14 inch diameter (I think) chrome air filters, extractors, 2 1/2 exhaust.

At the moment it has a decent amount of power and the fuel economy isnt that bad. I think I can usually get anywhere between 270 and 470 k's from 70 litres of fuel depending how I drive and where I drive...closer to the 470 mark most of the time.

FX/FJ

Hey, thanks to anyone out there who mailed me. I now have a list of about 6 utes that I can chase up but before I do I was hoping that you guys might give me some pointers. A lot of the cars are either a fair distance from me or a bit more than I wanted to spend, so any help I could get now would be great. Firstly, I have a mixture of "orginal" and restored types, both FX and FJ. Is there anything in particular I should be aware of? Like, one says that it has dual fuel tanks, another has a Celica 5 speed and HR disc brakes.

Which diff? Help please

Hi,
The two diff shops i have spoken with have both recommended something diffrent. One says that I should a LSD 10 bolt (V8 diff?) for about $1500 with my choice of ratios, and the other says I should use a shortened Borg Warner LSD from a VN commodore. They say that this is better because it is 4 pinion. This is $1400.

what gearbox should i use

I have a HR sedan and am going to put a worked 186 in it.

I will require a new gearbox and want to whether i should use a celica 5sp, trimatic, powerglide.

Is the work put into fitting a celica worth it or will a power glide be just as good.

Does anyone have the gear ratios of the 3 different gearboxes.

flat top pistons

Hi all, I want to put some flat top pistons in my 304.
Anyone know a good place to call?
Also, how much would they roughly cost and how much if I got a mechanic to put them in (country) as I couldn't be bothered going to all that trouble??
yours Sincerely VL GuY
