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

202 Engine mounting brackets

The standard pair has two sizes, can anyone advise which side the large one goes on? I think its the LH (Passenger) side but need to makesure so the engine is aligned properly. Also believe the brackets sit asymmetrically, LH in front of the rubber mount, RH behind the rubber mount. Cheers for any info.

Front Brakes(LHS and RHS) of HZ '78 Sedan Locked On

Hi Everyone, I've got a '78 HZ sedan with a 202 trimatic. When I pressed the brake I found that both the LHS and RHS brakes locked on. The only way they would release was when I released the pressure via the bleed screw. Thought it was the clearance between the booster and the master cylinder. No. Then I thought it was a blockage in the brake master cylinder. No. Then I thought it was the pistons stuck in the front brake calipers. No. I then pulled apart the proportioning value and found it was completed blocked up with gunk, had a torn o-ring and seized up.

202 Auto stammering in gear and running rough.

So I've got a 202 blue with a trimatic behind it. Running a varajet manifold and using an adaptor plate for the carbie. I'd had this issue where the motor was stammering, like there was some kinda major miss going on there, but in park or neutral it didn't seem as bad "although I'm sure it was still happening". It was running bloody rough as guts! Today I thought I'd really investigate it. Thought of what possible probs could be going on so I:

Installed brand new manifold gasket and tightened the guts out of it! - No difference!

wheel well drain holes

gday all,

can any of you boys pls tell whether the the holes
in the lower boot wheel wells, on a hz sedan, should be plugged/sealed?

...because my lhs is unplugged but the rhs isnt..?

so, are they in fact meant to be drain holes, and should they both
be plugged or not?

if they're not drain holes, then what are they for?

pls see pics attaced.

thanks.

3 speed floor shift reverse

Hi Guys
I have bought a panno with 3sp on floor but no reverse light switch. I know which wires are supposed to be connected but there doesn't appear to be a switch. Anyone tell me where and what part number these are supposed to be on these so I can get it roadworthy please. It's a 202 so I would think Aussie 3sp box, in a HX.
