Holden 179 choking out

Hi,

I don’t know a lot about engines. My old hr has a 179 in it. Was running a year or so ago, now I have gone to start it. Recharged battery, chucked in some fuel etc. will turn over and run for about 10 seconds then just stalls/chokes out. Any ideas? Try cleaning carby?
Cheers..... Haz

Stromberg Carby - hesitation on light throttle

was wondering if anyone may have had a similar problem? It's a Stromberg BXUV-2 on a 161 HR. Carby has been cleaned and had a basic kit put through inc new pump, float level, fuel pump and filter etc fine. Car starts and runs well, no problem with power or wide open throttle or idle. No missing. When cruising and slight throttle applied I feel a minor surge or hesitation. If I close the choke a little it goes away. So it's running a little lean on slight/partial throttle.

Heavy throttle on 202 with trip SUs

Hi all

I have a mild red 202 with triple 1 3/4 SUs. My acceletor pedal is extremely heavy getting off idle. Feels light enough once Im moving. I believe it relates to manifold vacuum but how do I resolve?

My setup is not uncommon. Im hoping someone has had this problem and worked out a nice solution. Im keen for ideas.
Thanks
L

X2 Twin Strommies

Were the twin carbies fitted to the X2 179 and 186 engines the same as the single carby used on the stock engines, but with venturi restrictors and re-jetted, or were they a carby with a smaller sized venturi?

Cheers, Mick.

HR parts search

I've been searching for parts for my HR rebuild. Found this on Gumtree, been sitting in a Garage for 20 years waiting for me so I bought the whole car. Only engine and gearbox missing. A treasure trove for me! Got it for a third of what all the individual parts are worth. All usual rust spots done, subframe & crossmember in excellent condition.

HRX2 Ute

So i found this pic and looking at it it's a HR X2 Ute,now i know Holden did offer the X2 in the Ute and Panel van in the HR and HD but whether any one actually ordered one back then is another thing.There can't be to many of these left,that's if this is a real one,I know they're easily made up but has anyone seen one?..
