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)

VK Calais Boot Garnish Paint Code

Hi all, thought I posted this last night but it's not showing up!!! Guess I'll try again...

Chasing the paint code for the orange stripes on the boot/eyebrow/between tail light moulds/garnish on a VK Calais... Pretty random question I know

From what I can see, they're not stamped on the back of mine :( Thanks in advance for your help.

VK DISTRIBUTOR AND OLI LEAK

changed the est distributor on the black VK for the hei one, now lost tachometer.
I assume i will have to run a wire from the -ve coil to the tacho, but where is the best place to splice it in?
Also still got huge oil loss, checked pcv has suction, pile to air cleaner is clear, put an old rocker cover filter off a red motor on to make sure the rocker cover was getting air flow, could a blocked oil filter be a cause?

thanks

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?

Clunking... Diff or Gearbox?

I have a vk 308 with and LSD. For ages I’ve been getting pretty bad backlash from the drivetrain, as well as a pretty loud clunk when I change gear (trimatic gearbox). Took it to the mechanic, said the diff is 'worn'. I’ve had the uni joints done which has fixed the worst of the backlash, but im still getting that brutal clunk from the gearbox. Thing is, it’s intermittent… sometimes it’s smooth as silk, other times it’s horrible which makes me think it's drivetrain and not box. Gearbox was rebuilt a few years ago and mechanic says it looks ok.

Vt brakes into vk v8

Hi all
Wanting to put Vt brakes under my vk. It has a 308 in it and when I fit either a vs plastic booster or a Vt booster it rests against the back corner of the RH rocker cover. Has anyone done this upgrade to a vk and how did they get around the clearance issue.

Cheers

HEI DISTRIBUTOR change over from est

just doing a conversion on the vk from est to hei,found Ts writeup helpful but need to clear up a couple of points.
A. where do i run the vacuum advance feed from? I have a spare feed available from the vacuum gauge which i have replaced with a tacho but the feed is off the back end of the intake manifold, I wonder if it would be better if the line fed off from nearer the carby. if so, how?

Hi all. Does anyone know how to remove this front panel (the damaged one) without having to go to panel beaters or resort to grinding around it? Its on a vk, I have removed all 6 bolts holding it but it is still attached along the top where its pressed to the rest of the car. Cheers

anyone around Adelaide want some cash to swap a trimatic?

Anyone in or around Adelaide swapped a trimatic over before? I have a vk that needs the trimatic swapped with a better one I have. I have a car pit and will have a good trans hoist/lift ready to go, along with a new gasket, oil, filter and trans mount. The good trans is in my parts car parked over the pit. Just have to remove the good trans, push car out of pit, push other car into pit and swap the trans over. Would need to bring own tools as I only have a few. Willing to pay good cash for the right person. I am located in the barossa.

changing trimatic if car engine isnt running

Hi all. I have a vk with a trimatic. It needs a few things before the engine is going. I have another trimatic I want to put in it. My question is, can I swap the gearboxes over with the engine not running? Like will I need to test drive and adjust anything that I need the car running to do so?

i need help with names of parts from efi 202

Hi all. I bought a vk not running for a project. I need help with some parts on the efi 202.

Firstly, on the efi manifold on the end closest to the windscreen, what is the little black part directly attached to it called? Mine needs to be replaced as it is leaking air. Can I buy a new replacement parts?

Secondly, on the efi manifold, the black hoses (about 15mm wide) coming off on the driver side of the manifold. The second one in from the windscreen side isn't attached to anything. Does anyone know where this is supposed to connect to?

Third. On the firewall in the engine bay on passenger side there is a threaded pipe about 15mm wide going into the firewall. There is nothing connected to it, what is it for?
