good fnp

good fnp

Gday Al. I see your smash pic and I raise you!. My old mans tonner mid 80's after a mk2 440 Cortina crossed to the wrong side of the road causing a 90 kph head on. Cortina driver unfortunately deceased.


Why do i keep getting pictures and advertisements of good looking horny women advertised when I browse this site out .Are they a major sponsor of old Holden.

roller rocker adjustments

Just installed sporty head onto red 202,and put YT roller rockers on also.
Been reading 'rockers and pushrods' section on this site and about lash etc. (Obviously this section refers to standard rockers adj.) but would I set roller rockers much the same?? Or is it completely different??
P.S. the motor recently had mild LPG/towing cam and new lifters etc. installed a few months ago. The new head I just put on is to GTR specs.

internal coloring

Finally pulled the head off HZ's red 202 to put sporty head on...and since I don't normally look inside of my engines, I'm curious about something.
The original head's valves are patchy light gray/white-ish on bottom of valves and the concave part of the head (where spark plug electrode comes thru) and cylinder bores are medium-darkish grey (almost seems to have a slight golden color to them??)
Would I be right in thinking I'm running a bit too lean??
Or,maybe a bit too hot in general...I have been usually using 98 Vortex,maybe octane a tad too high?
Anyway,hope my descriptions make sense...

Interesting Ebay items     (?)This area is inventionally left blank.

caps for valves

Very soon will be putting my sports head onto red 202 in HZ,and putting on YT roller rockers onto it (assuming I can find them in clutter in shed)
But have heard differing stories about the little caps (sorry,don't know what their name is) that go on valve ends...where roller rocker roller touches.
Are they truly necessary??
I'm a fairly conservative driver,so would not drive it too hard too often...
Any help appreciated
P.s. motor has very mild can in it.

input shaft

is it true that on a supra 5 speed box the input shaft needs to be replaced with one that suits the 253 308 engine, or does the gear box bolt straight up with the right bellhousing. cheers SPONSOR

And talking about Kurri Nostalgia day....


gday all,

i had a bit of (understatement) a worry last satdy arvo on the m7 going to blue mountains in me hz.

when i started going over 100km/h, the gauge went up OVER HALFWAY (pls see photo).
it looked as though is was gonna keep going up.

so i pulled over, put up the bonnet, and saw no leaks or anything. so i kept going
and the gauge came down after the stop (with the engine running) and stabilised half-way'ish.

i've got a crude radiator recovery cap directing overflow into a drink bottle. normally, the level stays
at a black line i've marked in texta about 1/3 the way up. it was FULL TO THE TOP
when i upped the bonnet, so obviously getting hot enough to overflow.

cap is std 15psi recovery type.

WTB: Holden 6

Hi guys,

Chasing a few things.

1. a warm/hot Holden 6, preference for 186 however will look at others. Around the $1500 mark. In qld or northern nsw
2. reputable, well priced media blasters in Brisbane, someone who knows what their doing and wont warp the [Naughty Pottyword] out of panels.
3. a decent, well priced painter/panel beater or even a bloke who does a good job from home.

Need to get this HR off the ground and on the road.


Cheers Guys
