VB VC VH VK VIN Plate Codes

Hi all,

I'm trying to put together a complete list of VB VC VH VK VIN plate codes.
As you can see I'm missing some, not 100% on others and probably completely wrong with a few.

Can anyone add and or correct the below....?

DIVISION
8 = GMH

DEGREE OF LUXURY
? = Commodore L WHAT IS THE CODE?
K = Commodore SL
L = Commodore Berlina
? = Commodore SL/X WHAT IS THE CODE?
? = Commodore SL/E WHAT IS THE CODE?
? = Commodore Executive WHAT IS THE CODE?
X = Calais
S = SS

BODY STYLE
19 = Sedan
69 = Sedan
35 = Station Wagon

ENGINE
N = 1.9L 4 Cyl. (Starfire)
D = 2.85L 6 Cyl. (173)
L = 3.3L 6 Cyl. (202) High Compression IS THIS CORRECT?
M = 3.3L 6 Cyl. (202) Low Compression IS THIS CORRECT?
K = 3.3L EFI 6 Cyl. (202)

WB VB VC VH Power Steering Pump Bolts & Spacer Sizes

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me what the lengths and thread sizes are for each of the bolts and spacers which are used to mount a power steering pump to the drivers side of 202 (WB VB VC VH) block ?

I've misplaced mine and the power steering pump is the last thing to mount before before turning the key.

Any help would be much appreciated.

can of worms!

Hi all! Hoping someone here knows this scenario.. Or can help me narrow it down..
Quaddy on a 308 with trimatic. Engine starts ok, sometimes needs a pedal prime. Warms up great. Fast idles 1400-1600 Base idles at 800. Switch from N to D and she stops in her tracks. Every time unless fluttering the pedal a bit while changing into gear. If I adjust the hotair choke and lock it on, and readjust base idle to 800rpm, it changes gear flawlessly..
Cheers in advance for any thoughts or suggestions

Dizzy? I am.

If a v8 HEI dizzy was positioned as per the Holdenpaedia diagram, i.e. position 1 on dizzy oriented more to the left side of the block, and running great. And after a tamper it is 180 degrees rotated from original position. still great.
Should it be rotated that far? is that really advanced? or same diff? The penny won't drop.

what have I done?

There are some real ferals around.

A mate of mine asked me to help him put an add on gumtree to sell his elderly mother's VH dunnydore. Biggest mistake we made was saying that it was an old lady's car, they got a number of email scams, ferals coming around offering a 100 bucks and then the obscene phone calls. I have to say for an 80 year old lady she's still got some sting and sent a couple packing.

Red or blue 6 cyl air con compressor bracket HQ onwards

Image: 

I just found this on Speedy Air Spare (Gold Coast) web site. http://speedyairspar...
It's the same compressor bracket that I have on the 202 in my UC it's to suite the smaller Senden 508 style compresser. I just thought some of you might like to know. Also it may not suite pre HQ or LC/LJ due to narrow sub frames.
Cheers Shane

gudgeon pin failure

So I've assembled an blue 202. All the usual fun stuff, crow 35603 cam, porting of the head, new pistons, rings, bearings etc. The pistons were removed and replaced from the rods by a machine shop as I figured it would be easier that way. The engine was put together with liberal amounts of engine oil and assembly lube in all the applicable spots. The engine sat in the car for two years before finishing. Not started I'm two years. Engine full of oil. Finally got back to it. Engine turns over ok, started it up. Oil light stays on. Stop engine, check sensor - ok.
