173 engine ID

I was given a red 173 motor today. I think it might be from an LJ Torana.
Engine number: CD 428759
Head part no: 7438296
Date code; middle of head on manifold side: J2 0
Number at back of head on manifold side: 6 H
Can anyone confirm what it is?
Supposed to be a YT head but has single valve springs and ports look stock.
If it's just a stock head I'll probably just pass the whole motor on if anyone needsa 173 for an LJ resto.
It has the sump on it.

73 lj 202

Hi All,

Looking at rebuilding an engine for my lj currently has the original 173 with small leaks everywhere.

What 202's fit i read there are short and long versions? Red, blue?

Also are all the bolt ons e.g. starter, radiator, alternator suitable?

From my reading any red will fit but will need to ise original sump. Just want to confirm. Cheers All.

Red 186

Hi all. I was given a old red 186 by my late best mate some years ago and as I now have some spare time I would like to bring this motor back to life. When it was given to me I was told it had a yella terra head. Upon removing the head I found that the valves are stamped yt which is a good thing. The motor can be easily turned over by hand. It came with twin stromberg carbies and alloy gears and I was also told that the camshaft is an XU1 street grind??

HEI Tacho

Mate has recently purchased an LJ GTR (genuine car).Preivious owner has fitted HEI ignition which appears to work fine. Not checked if relay / diode is fitted but it does not "run on".
Problem is when he hooks up the tacho (genuine LJ tacho) wire to coil negative it stalls the car. I presume it is somehow shorting ignition to ground.
Have not eyeballed the problem personally yet.
Any thoughts out there on what the cause could be?
