I have just done a compression test on the 202 in my ute.The readings were
now that I have read the holdenpedia i realise that doing each cylinder one at a time with the other plugs still in and the throttle closed will give big variations. So back to do it properly, Will post the results.
problem is I seemed to have killed the starter motor, it just turns over sluggishly even with jumper leads from a good battery...do I need a new starter motor or is there an easy way out?

I have a trimatic, i beleive from a VC commodore,(in a FC holden red 6 with a eaton supercharger) i was rebuilding the valve body and got the last three springs mixed up, the manual i am using is LJ/HQ, the later trimatics seem to have different springs in the valve body and i was wondering if anyone has a a manual, im sure this is in the very last page of the GM workshop manual for the later commodore trimatics, i need to know the colours for the following springs. "1) "low control valve spring" 2) low speed downshift timing valve spring" 3)" high speed downshift timing valve spring"
Some months ago,there was a pic posted here by someone,showing a mag wheel (made by Cheviot,and Ro)
that had slow leak,apparently due to porous alloy used.
Now,I also have those mags.And at this moment in time,the tyres are off due to polishing the rims...and just wondering if there is anything to stop the leaks,such as painting a sealant on inside of rim.
2of the 4 tyres would lose 10psi per month,and it gets a bit annoying.
Any suggestions appreciated...

hey guys new to the forum
just a few quick questions firstly what springs you would reccomend for my hz statesman caprice? Iam looking at lowering it about an 1.5". So far i have seen king springs, pedders and lovells. Curious as to what would be best or if there are any other brands you would reccomend.
Also looking at tyres at the moment i have 235/14/60. finding it hard to find many brand choices in this size. i have looked at antique tyres is there anywhere else that would sell these sizes?
any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.
Interesting selling technique.
She looks in pain to me :O
Can anyone suggest a good / cheap spray painter on the western suburbs of melbourne?
i know i've waffled on about petrol economy a bit lately, but just thought i'd share this info' with yas.
pls let me know boys if yas reckon i got it right/wrong ok?
since trying (caltex) 98 octane for the last month, instead of using the usual 95, i've increased my economy from approx. 15mpg to 17/18 mpg (say 17mpg). so that's a 13.3% increase in economy right?
95 costs (today in nsw) 152.9 and 98 costs 156.9, so a percentage increase of 2.61%.
so, if i spend 2.61% more $$, i get a 13.3% increase in economy.
so 98 has gotta be the go eh?
what do ya reckon boys (besides me being an old holden purist...)?
Right, wagon is ready for compliance, engine in, wiring done, all except need to get window washers to work properly! Such a small annoying issue. Got new hose, which is alittle larger, nozzles seem to be blocked. Have tried to shove guitar string up which did nothing, also tried to blow but didnt work. perhaps need some high pressure air. Any hints? Cant wait to drive my new V8 legally!
For sale - this seat came out of bro-laws tonner a year ago and has been under my carport every since.
The drivers swab is cracked but it hasn't gone right through yet so perhaps it can be repaired or that bit replaced. The piping on the drivers side has been replaced as well. Its nice to sit in, bro-law regrets taking it out for the buckets we put in there, but its too late now! $100, Adelaide southern hills. 0412777546
