Holden Colour Codes

I hadn't noticed this before on Unique Cars so it might be something new (probably just didn't see it)

Holden Colour Charts, codes, paint and interior.

A - L http://www.uniquecar...

M - Z http://www.uniquecar...

Scroll down to bottom for year of manufacture.

Might be handy for some of us :-)

Vk commodore conversion

Hey guys
I'm new here
Just have a quick question regarding wiring
I have an 85 vk commodore vacationer sedan which I just converted to a v8.
Originally the car was a 202 carby with 3 speed auto,
I have converted it to a 308 with 4 speed manual (m21)
Although my vk is an 85 I'm sure that the 308 engine I have used is out of an 84 vk south Australian police car (L31)

VK wagon repairs

Howdy all. I'm looking to do some repairs to my VK wagon but wondering if I can save myself some coin in the long run..
I think shes running the standard 5 speed man box (reverse is push down and next to first) which needs new shaft bearings/seals. Question is, is there another box out there that will bolt up with minimal mods/changes that is stronger than the standard.

WTB: Plastic indicator cancel plate for 70s/80s Holdens

It seems you can get a reproduction unit for the early-70s vehicles, but I cannot find the plastic indicator cancel assembly that sits inside the steering wheel for anything after '72. I put a request out on Findapart, but no interest there.

Mine's been AWOL since I bought the vehicle (UC Torana). From what I can tell, it's the same part from the HQ all the way through to the VL.

Picture of the mid-70s (cream) one here: http://www.gmh-toran...

Picture of the later (orange) one here: http://i760.photobuc...

VK CARBY

Got a vk 202 auto.
has quaddy carby completely stock.
Some one suggested to me that i should replace it with an old (recon) stromberg off a hj or so, he reckons they would give better performance and economy.
I see a couple of problems, first the manifold for the strommy would come off a 9 port head and the vk has a 12 port head so there is the question of will it go on, secondly i don't really believe the stromberg would be all that much better.
I do want to improve the engine, will be fitting an xu1 type cam or similar, take 40th off the head, fit the efi extractors.
not looking for all out performance just a bit better performance aqnd economy.
then the carby do i go ford falcon weber or go for a 250 or 350 holley?

whats the best?

thanks

WTB: Quadrajet metering rods

Hello Ladies and Gents,
I'm currently looking for some primary metering rods to suit a Quadrajet carby. I'm looking for some 48M rods though would consider 46M or 47M rods aswell, but they must be M series rods.
An obscure request, I know. Hopefully someone has a crate of parts kicking around the shed Very Happy

I would also consider secondary metering rods other than AN, CX, CH, DH, or DA as a way to broaden my collection.

water pumps

I done a water pump yesterday about 70 ks from my house a mate brought me another pump.
Did black motors have long and short snout pumps fitted to them as the long snout pump he brought me the pulleys don't line up. Im trying to get out of wasting another $85 on buying another pump. Why was there 2 types ?

I think to save money my dad put a red motor pump on it pity I ended up buying 2 pumps at least the 2nd pump was only $45. As the oldmans conversion out lasted him he'd be laughing.

VK 6cyl EFI headers.

Just posting this as I have nothing better to do after re-arranging the wifes furniture at her request.

Mainly relates to another thread. The shown pic is of a 202 EFI setup black motor in a HZ, showing the difference in the header arrangement. The other attachment I have provided is a standard set of 202 headers (Lukey brand) for a 202 non EFI setup.
