HJ Kingswood thermo fan install

Picked up a 14 inch fan for the stock 202. Can I use the temp sender in the head to control it? Or do I need to buy a temp switch, which should have been in the bloody kit in the first place

350 holley fuel rich running issue

for some reason my holley 350 is leaking fuel in the vacuum chamber behind the power valve making my car run really rich, but still pretty good.
I have a lumpy cam in it, with 107 lobe sep and 287 #50 duration with 430 valve lift.
the vacuum is at 13inch which is normal for a hot motor to have low vacuum like that, so ive got currently a 7.5 power valve.
at first I thought the power valve that was in it was faulty so I replaced it.

Raised White Letter Tyres

G'day folks,
I've asked this question on a few fb pages and done a lot of searching, but haven't really found much info other than the usual extremes of opinions found about this topic (great vs terrible) or manufacturers info, which is clearly biased.
Basically...I love the look of the raised white letter tyres. I'd love to get a set for my ute, but I just want to find out people's opinions of them in terms of wet weather performance, durability, which brands and particular models are good, which are not, etc.

Testbench 202 not starting. Ignition issue/No spark.

Hi fellas.
I've just setup a 202 on a testbench frame and looking to get this thing firing up. For whatever reason I've got no spark. I've even changed distributors and coils from a running vehicle and still no change.

I've hooked up the +ve from the battery terminal to the +ve of the coil, then have a +ve wire going to the +ve of the distributor.

On the negative side, I've got from the -ve of the battery terminal to the -ve of the coil and then to the -ve of the distributor.

HZ Ute - Metal Tops for Door Trim?

G'day folks,
I'm looking to upgrade the door trims in my HZ ute at some stage in the near future and was wondering if anyone knew of a company doing re-pro metal tops? There is a bloke on ebay that sells them, but only with his trims. Kingswood/Resto Country don't do them, neither do Rare Spares. I could re-use the ones on the ute already, but it would be nice to get a new pair so I can send them off to the company that make the trim I want and not have to drive around without door trims while I wait. That and new is good.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers.

Holly Sniper EFI 2bbl or 4bbl ???

I am trying to decide on 2 barrel 2300 or 4 barrel Holly Sniper EFI for my EH.

I have a reasonably worked 202 blue motor.
The head is pretty good it used to be on a speedway car (red block with a balanced bottom end and produce power to +7000rpm.
The bottom end is a reco blue 202 with standard bore.

I currently have 465 holly on it with a Cain manifold that I modified to fit the blue head.

What I want to know is should I run the 2bbl system on the 4bbl manifold with an adapter or put a blue motor manifold back on there with a 350 holly adapter plate?

HZ Engine No Identification

Hi,
I recently purchased a HZ sedan which seems to be untouched by the one owner. I am curious to see whether the 202 is relative to the build date of the car. If someone could decipher or point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.
Build date on tag: 09-78
Engine No. QL7xxxxx
Engine date stamp: 6Dx (either a 6 or 8, need to remove oil filter)

Removing 202 from WB

G'day Brainstrust
I'm about to remove the 202 from my WB tunna. My query is that the motor is connected to the aussie 4speed with the bench seat shifter, so is it necessary to remove the whole shifter assembly with linkages to get the engine out with box attached or can the shifter come through the trans tunnel hole with a bit of wriggling and jacking up the front of the car? Having never done this before with a aussie 4speed box a bit of sage advice would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers all
Al
