VC Wiring Question

g'day,

ive just put my engine back in the vc after rebuild, it's running a blue 202 with trimatic. I've wired it all up except one wire. it's a pink/tan looking wire and its in the same loom plastic for the anti dieseling solenoid but im not sure where exactly it would go. i know its for instrument lights and fuel/temp gauge on the dash because i thought it hooked up to the starter motor and when i did that it iluminated all the dash dummy lights even with no key in the ignition. any help would be amazing

Fuel Economy

Ive got a 202 6 cylinder 3.3L blue engine in my wb panelvan and my fuel consumption seems to be through the roof. Ive made around 260kms to a 70.4L tank. Which I think roughly calculates to 26L/100km. (Suburban driving.) ,This is assuming that my tank is actually empty when the gauge says it is. I need to know if theres anyway to reduce this as I'm planning to do an interstate road trip in the near future.
Any help greatly appreciated!

vc fuel gauge problem

I have a vc sl commy and the fuel gauge doesn't work. When I got it the wire coming from the tank wasn't connected to anything. Since that I've had a look at the back of the cluster and there was only a blue plug in the back, but 2 spots for plugs so I connected a plug to the black cable from the fuel tank and plugged it next to the blue one. Fuel gauge is still not working. Does it need to be grounded before plugging it in? or am I completely wrong with what I'm doing? Can't find any diagrams, so Any help would be greatly appreciated

34 ADM weber in 202 vacuum port help

Hi guys
Im in the process of installing a 34ADM weber on my 202 and am having issues with what actually connects to what with the vacuum lines.

It fires up and runs with revs, but doesn't want to idle and im guessing its coz I have vacuum ports not connected.

I have looked at the diagram in holdenpaedia but there is one vacuum port not labelled...I have circled it. What does it do or connect to? Do I need it?

Cheers
Jordan

Adjusting Tailgate Regulator

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to get my wagon's tailgate glass level, however I can't figure out how to adjust it.

I was thinking I would have to change the position of the teeth on the regulator, but can't figure out how to do that.

Can anyone give me some advice?

I have pictures if you need.

Cheers!

HQ Stromberg Bits Needed!

Hey everybody. I've been having trouble with my worn out accelerator linkages in my HQ so I've decided to go to a cable instead.

The problem is, the bracket you get in the aftermarket kits (Rare Spares etc) seems to be for the V8 engine and I can't find anywhere to attach it. I'm trying to track down some old cable-type strombergs or bits so I can salvage the brackets and suchlike that I need.

Can anyone help me out or suggest someone who can?? (I live in Brisbane but I'm willing to pay for postage/go for a drive)

Thanks!

aussie 4 speed

hi guys
ive just swapped my gearbox over from a 3on the tree to a 4 on the floor.
it drives fine, but when changing down from 3rd to 2nd it grinds and doesn't want to go in. It will shift into 2nd once the speed slows right down.
But driving up thru the gears is sweet...no grinding at all.
Any suggestions? Linkage adjustment??? Rooted internals???
cheers

Colour coded wheels on a HJ?

Hi there I've recently bought a HJ in antelope metallic paint.
I want to redo the rims to silver but on further research I've heard that some did come out with colour matching rims?
I only ask as mine aren't silver (they are pretty beaten up) but look to be the same as the car.
The car has never been resprayed.
Any info will be appreciated.

aussie 4 speed worn shifter

These 2 gear sticks were in a box of shifter parts that came with an aussie 4 speed I bought on ebay a few months ago.

Sure glad I wasn't using the 1 on the left.

Unfortunately the good shifter is the bendy type for a bench seat.

Have people had success cutting and welding shifters.

Nine year old engine advice

I have found a cheap 202 motor that has not been started in over nine years.
I need some advice on what to do before trying to start it....
I was thinking maybe take the plugs out get some really thin oil to shoot down there and turn it over by hand very slow just to get the pistons oiled again.
Is this feasible?
Also anything else people suggest that I should possibly do?
Regards.

Fuel spitting from 202 carter indicator hole

Hey guys, as above, I've just noticed some fuel spitting from the indicator hole on the rear side of the carter pump.
Just for some reassurance, would that be a fingered diaphragm? I've had a look at the handy holdenpaedia page already :)

And if it is, anybody know of a decent shop in Perth that would carry that sort of stock?

Cheers for any advice,
Rhys

Very Late HQ ident plates

Hey there! I have been trying to find out a bit more about my HQ sedan from the body, compliance and VIN plates. The VIN number is 8N69LEH328320Q which according to forums means that it is a Kingswood sedan with a 202 High compression motor built in 1975 at the Acacia ridge plant in Brisbane. The HJ started production in October 74 so surely the year letter should be a 'D' not an 'E'. The compliance plate has a date in the bottom left that reads 8/74

Can anyone clear this up for me? Thanks!

Registration of an unregistered car in Queensland

HI Guys, I am in the process of purchasing an old HX ute to restore. The vehicle was purchased in NSW off a gumtree ad 5 or 6 years ago by the person I am purchasing it off and then moved to Queensland. As far as he is aware the was not registered when he bought it and he never did a ownership transfer for it either. It has not been registered in the last 5 - 6 years at least.

My Question is what types of checks can / do I need to do to be able to make the purchase so I am able to go through the Qld transport process without any hassels.

Thanks in advance.
