Hi all,

Been quite a while but here is a quick update, picked up the motor from the machinist today. It's all ready for assembly. There is some pics attached for you all to see some of the goodies going in to it.
We start assembling it fairly soon and getting the rest of the parts.

What fuel

What Fuel do we all run our old holden 6's on. I currently drive a vk it only ever gets 91 unleaded in it, the head on this 1 hasn't been done up for unleaded eventually If I ever rebuild the motor it will get done up for unleaded. I don't bother with any additives I don't drive that hard usually I'm asking this as I was surprised at some of the answers in another thread by blokes saying to use 98 why bother how much further in k's per tank does it go? My oldman did the same that motor went 10 years out lasted the car.

Progress update

Hi all

Just another quick update,
The bay is all finished polishing, came up a treat, booster has been taken back to metal and repainted in gloss black. Shines nicely in the bay, starting to put a few things back in the bay, steering column is back in, all the engine bay wiring is finished under the guards and headlights are all back in, guards are now fitted back on, and a bonus, everything electrically worked :) haha
I gave one of the guards a real quick sand back and polish and took before an after pics. Look in the attachments. The difference is incredible.

Buff and polish time

Hi all

I am planning on buffing the engine bay on the weekend so I can start putting it all Back together. I will be doing it by hand obviously being the bay.
I have never done it before, from what I've read I wetsand it back lightly with 1200 paper till its smooth, then polish it with a cutting compound and then finally polish it with a swirl remover, is that right? I'm not up to the outside yet just want to do the bay so I can reassemble for now.

Any help here would be great as I've never done it before.

Cheers
James

202 blue motor crank

Hi all

Sourced a blue motor crank for my rebuild for the extra strength. And apparently they are heavier which gives you more torque. Any truth to this??

Is there anything else I need or does it just go straight in, same main caps etc???
Any help appreciated

Cheers
James
