EH radiator conversion

Have posted about my EH having overheating probs, when stationary or under load. Have done everything that was suggested, head coming off next week, to be crack tested, although there has been no indication of water and oil mixing, and cleaning/flushing water jacket. Fitting a HQ V8 radiator has also been suggested, what needs to be done to fit same, I would imagine dimensions would be different, presently running STD 202 with trimatic

Paint and Trim codes

Morning.

I've recently bought a 1974 HQ ute as a project, and I've a few questions.

From what I can gather from searching the net is that it is a '74 Belmont made in Sydney and came with engine L20 (202). There are no codes on the plate for trans or axle.

The paint code (568-15894) which I think is black. I'm unable to find a reference for the trim code (1885-35A). Though the glove box lid and A pillar trims are painted a bluey-grey.

Can somebody help me identify the colour and trim?

I've attached a photo of the plate.

Thanks.

202 red Motor dies when I put the throttle on

Hey having a pretty hard time working out what's wrong with my hq ute...
I had it sit for a while when I did some painting and rust work, it ran fine before that.
But now the revs just climb up and down when idling and if I pull the throttle on it dies?
I've put a reconditioned carby on, new head and manifolds gaskets, checked the fuel pump, checked the point gaps, it's got plenty of fuel.
Anyone had a similar issue? I'm all out of ideas on how to fix this one... I jut want to drive my old ute again :(

HZ Clutch Issue - Rat Trap/Half and Half/Cable?

I am doing an engine swap in a few weeks (202 red for another less dying one) and the clutch has seen better days so I thought I should throw a new one at it while I have the engine out, but I need to make sure to get the right type of clutch (push or pull).
I'm having trouble trying to figure out what my clutch setup is. I've been doing as much research and reading as I can but all I've been able to figure out is that they switched to full cable halfway through the HZ run, which is right when my car was built (Dec '78).

Carb soak

Been a while since I have been on here after my HX van exploded in rust & went the way of being parted out.
Currently trying to refurbish an old Varajet carb, and having difficulty getting it cleaned out. After trying a number of concoctions, latest is a 50:50 mix of Xylene & MEK, which one would think would shift just about anything, but after 3 days soaking it still won't remove the internal white deposits as shown in the photo. Anyone got any suggestions of good carby soak mixes?

Form a gasket WB brake booster to firewall

Hi All

Anyone know what the gasket material is on a WB brake booster to firewall?
What do you use?

Just removed my brake booster and there is a black maluable substance between the booster and firewall, it has the consistence of blue tack, once removed easily you can squish into a ball.

Thanks in advance.
