Fuel gauge is stuck on full

Hey guys,
Ive recently bought a 1976 Holden HQ with 202 six cylinder.
it runs perfectly but the only problem is that the fuel gauge is stuck on full whenever you turn the key to ignition, I've made sure the sender is grounded to the chassis but it didn't seem to work all the wiring is working but we don't know what else it could be.
do you guys have and suggestions?

hz petrol tank sender installation

gday all,

can any of you boys pls advise if there's any tips-and-tricks
with installing me new (ie. reconditioned) petrol tank sender?

i'm using the same o-ring coz the one i got with the reco
job was too thin and wouldnt seal. i'm just gonna turn it
upside down.

i tried getting a new, nitrile o-ring from cbc bearings but none of them were thick enough. i tried 4 different sizes..

someone told me to apply a liddle bit of silcone sealer,
then fit the retainer locking washer/ring.

any ideas boys?

bij.

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. I’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]. I’m at tethers end with it.

Holden WB 202 to 308 conversion

Gday all,
I’m about to convert my wb Ute from 202 trimatic auto to 308 5 speed manual.
I’ve got a 308 and 5 speed t5 out of a vn v6 commodore. I just wondered what parts I’d need to convert it and if any modifications needed what would they be? For example machining the input shaft to suit the 308, would it be necessary? Also a rough price.
Cheers 👍

Fuel economy on a holden 202

Hey guys! Just wondering what kinda fuel economy figures you all achieve on the old holden six, ie 202?

I do quite a lot of highway miles and wondering if I can squeeze anymore out of my old 202 powered wagon.

I wouldn't mind knowing how many K's per litre you're achieving and what motor, carbie, gearbox, diff and running gear you're using to achieve those figures.

Any one know much about the quality of Hypatec and Endurotec pistons please? A friend in the UK is looking at getting a 202 (red motor) rebuilt and he is having a bit of trouble sourcing pistons. He can get the ones listed above but can't find much info on them.

WB Project original or Custom?

Hi Guys
i am looking at starting WB project soon and am trying to work out whether to do it original or custom as I’d love to put a V8 in it. Ute is my Uncles old farm Ute so has sentimental value, he drove it for 10 plus yrs then when it stopped it went into the shed where it’s been sitting for last 30+yrs. It’s manufacture date is April 1980, 202, 3 on the tree so considering it was from the original release date am I better to keep original?..
Cheers

Where on the carburetor of Holden HQ is the throttle stop screw?

Hello,

There is a mention to the throttle stop screw on the page 40 of "the Holden 6 series HQ-HJ". But there is no photo of it in the book. So I can't adjust idling of the HQ engine. Please help me.

Kind regards
