hard to start torana 202 uc

have had this problem for some time, decided to do some thing.I started by giving carby a good clean even the throat with 900wet using petrol as lubricant,make sure you take the main jet out as well as the metering jet which is above main jet(it just pushes out).Clean all parts,blow jets out with compressed air including all gally's (air holes in body of carby).

Are they the same diff or are there differences like suspension mounting points and axle splines I should know about? Can I bolt one from a uc Torana straight into my vc Commy?
Thanx

UC starfire 4 stall problems

Hi. Have a UC sunbird. Have just spend $1000s on it mechanically and body and interior are spec. Does well driving initially but after time (or when to come home) it can just stall when slowing at traffic lights or even to turn corner. It’s an auto. Is it possible this could be a fuel filter problem? Carby was reco’d only 500kms ago as it had bad fuel at some point. The fuel tank has also recently been drained and removed for rust/paint work. It’s like it just runs out of petrol but has full tank??

Torana Tuesday

The Holden Sunbird was also updated to UC specifications and continued to sell well as a 1.9-litre four-cylinder car, sharing its body architecture with the UC Torana sedan and hatchback. The UC Sunbird expanded into three trim levels: base (manual only), SL, and SL/E. It did very well in New Zealand, where it was assembled, particularly in fleets, where it competed with the Ford Cortina and a variety of Japanese models. SL/E trim was also available in New Zealand. The UCs had square headlamps and a smoother front end. LX and early UC Sunbirds were fitted with a 1.9-litre Opel engine.

Hi All

I’ve been in hibernation for a while, so happy new year to all. Took my uc for a cruise through the Grampians here in sw Vic, the car ran like a dream. Still pinching myself. It really pays to do it once do it properly! I’ve kept is as it came out of the show room, it’s now done a wopping 60.500km since new. In the last 12 months I’ve only done 1500km in it, not good! I got side tracked with a new fun addiction building modified Aussie mowers. Been a blast. Anyhow cheers.

My UC

Since I finished the resto I have loved every second driving it, runs so smooth. Its proof that if you dedicate yourself to a project and don't rush it will get finished. My advice is don't keep or look at the receipts after buying parts, and don't add up what it cost and ignore the fact that you spent 500 hours restoring it . That's my secret to completing a project.
