Bigger clutch in red 6 HG

I have a 186, and bought an aussie 4 speed to fit to it. The 4 speed came with a flywheel, clutch disc, and pressure plate

I installed my old flywheel that has always been on my 186, and then found that the pressure plate was larger than my original. The clutch disc was also of larger diameter.

I decided that the significantly larger clutch surface area might be a good thing, so I then installed the flywheel that came with the 4 speed, along with the matching clutch gear.

Electronic ignition

Converting 186 standard ignition to electronic with a distributor from a VC Commodore. Does it matter if the distributor is from a 2.85 or 3.3 motor?

black 3.3 in HG

I am working on a Hg project. I have a black 3.3 carb engine that came with an auto gearbox, and am converting to aussie 4 speed. The crank in the 3.3 engine contains a dowell, however the HG manual flywheel has no hole for a dowell. Question is, should I just cut the dowell off flush with the end of the crank, and fit the flywheel as you would on a red 186?

Hi there, looking to convert points to electronic ignition. Think about a Pertronix Ignitor kit or a second hand unit from VK Blue motor Commodore. Any thoughts suggestions would be great. Swap is for a HG with a stock 186. Cheers.

HG VAN BODY NUMBER 1A CHASSIS HG00013A REGO KST 093

Recently did a search through AOMC in Victoria regarding the first rego number and the original engine number of my Van which was built in 5/70 during the Restricted Volume Production of the HG Range. It was first registered in 9/70 as KST 093 and had the engine number of 161H322145. That engine was subsequently removed and was later fitted to another Holden with rego number JST 325. It replaced 161R173195 which I believe is a HR engine. Has anyone ever owned a HR with that rego? Does anyone have the engine with the number 161H322145 in their car?
