Hi all, just interested to know if anyone has had experience with bolting an m90 blower off a commodore to a 202 or 3.3.

Basically what i want to know is whaat manifold is best used, 2 bbl, 4 bbl or a proper aussiespeed manifold (700$+) (i have the capacity to make adapter plates etc). What cam is best for this application.

Transmission vacuum modulator

Anyone got any ideas about fixing the previous owners dodgy job of fixing the leak on my trimatic? It looks like selleys knead it or instant weld. Or maybe I call in a pro, assuming it wouldn't be that expensive a fix at a transmission specialist?

HEI Tacho

Mate has recently purchased an LJ GTR (genuine car).Preivious owner has fitted HEI ignition which appears to work fine. Not checked if relay / diode is fitted but it does not "run on".
Problem is when he hooks up the tacho (genuine LJ tacho) wire to coil negative it stalls the car. I presume it is somehow shorting ignition to ground.
Have not eyeballed the problem personally yet.
Any thoughts out there on what the cause could be?

G'Day mates from the states

Been a while thank goodness this site is back I really missed it. So it's been a few months since I sold my HQ tonner to Patrick who lives in Southern California. I also traded in my 04 GTO monaro for a new challenger hellcat I do love it but I need another Holden soon. Here is a pic of the 707 HP supercharged HEMI hellcat showing her numbers hard to get high horse on the street but the torque is instant about 650 foot pounds hope all is we'll down under it's end if winter for you guys now right

Spark Plugs

What's everyone's choice of spark plugs in a red 202 with HEI distributor? I've recently installed one and wasn't sure if the NGK plugs for a standard 202 will still be suitable with the electronic distributor upgrade?

Thanks in advance

Holden eh generator light

I know there are a few different posts on this but none of the solutions offered in them has fixed my problem,

Car: eh with 202, 40a bosh alternator (charges as 12.5v indicated but drops to 10.5v with lights on)

Problem: with the key off (or out) the generator light stays on and the battery will drain overnight, with the key on the light goes off

I have tried : new genuine bosh regulator, replaced earthing leads throughout the car, checked all fuses,

I'm at a loss at what to do next anybody have any ideas?
Thanks in advance

78 Hz

So I have another old 202 Holden kingswood , I have mainly had Hj's before but I got hold of a 78 Hz and it has cross bracing on the front end , I have never seen it before. And with that and the power steering .It has been the smoothest Kingswood I have ever driven.
So my questions is that Was cross braceing the front end a Hz thing or has somebody added it? As all the manuals I have don't mention it
Here are the codes I have off it , Any help would be great.

Vacuum advance

Morning guys,

Been reading a little about vaccum advance which may help me solve my carb problem of hesitation at revs. My advance on the electronic distributor is cone yes to the manifold tap along with the brake booster (manifold advance) whilst all the plugs on carb are all blocked off apart from the erg and canister taps on the carb are joined via a pipe.
Will swapping the vaccum advance on the distributor over to the carb (ported advance) help with the running of the car?

Thanks in advance guys!!

202 Carb problem

Engine stalled today and wouldn't start back up. Pouring fuel into it fires over but then it coughs and struggles to stay going then chokes out when accelerator is pumped. Also had problems starting in the cold so I'm thinking they are related. Visually nothing appears to be a problem and the fuel filter is new.
Should I overhaul the Carby or is there something I should look at first?

Thanks in advance
