wb power steering-WB Holden ute

Greetings all.
I have a slow weepy leak thats coming out of the high pressure hose side of the power steering pump.
Dribbles out and under the pump itself and drops itself straight on top of the rag joint , which is now munted. I have unscrewed the hose for a look thinking that it may have an O ring that is dried out but alas there is no o ring of any sort.
Is there supposed to be an o ring around the threaded end so when its tightened up it seals ?
I spoke to Repco who found a listed part but its only the size of the flared end of the pipe itself.

202 starter motor issues

Hello guys. I finally got my new water pump on and went to start the old girl she went first pop but sounded bad like the starter was stuck on. Bridged the terminals with a screwdriver and it made a bad crunching noise. So I took the dust cover off and had a look I think I can see the starter gear still engaged with the flywheel would that be the issue? And how can I fix it without taking starter out preferably cos I don't have much time on m hands ๐Ÿ™„ if I do have to take it out can I fix it or buy a new one?

WB Holden ute

Greetings all, I have an 81 WB that is mocked up to look like a Sandman ute. Within 10 minutes of driving the car home the indicators stopped working. Thought it was the sloppy indicator stalk, bought a new one , nope, not that. Checked flasher cans (hazard and indicator) both working fine, fuse ok.

Supercharging 202

Hi everyone
Just chasing some info on supercharged 202s. What gearbox? I have a 3 speed on the tree would a four speed bolt straight in?
Can you keep it all under the bonnet? I have a spare rusty bonnet so not major but would be nice.
It's a wb ute the motor was previously supercharged so it is built for it.

Any pics of your sidemount supercharges would be awesome.

Decoding the ID plates on a WB Ute

Hi All,

This is my first post to the site, so hoping someone can help me out.

I have a WB Ute, and I am trying to de-code the ID plates.

I have started with the small plate located on top of the firewall, but I have become confused as the plate states it's a D (1974) but the WB's didn't come out until 1980.

Can someone help me, plates code is below.

*8M80LD L109949 B*

So far I have this worked out this information,

Rochester tuning

Hey guys, I need a bit of help with a Rochester on my 308. Itโ€™s a factory commodore unit which runs absolutely perfect on the primaries, it actually goes rather well and will rev out, but once you hit the throttle and open up the 4 barrel it really dies, it struggles to get to 3500 rpm! I pulled the air cleaner off it and manually opened up the throttle to see if I could see what was going on, on the primary circuit its pumping fuel but once you open the secondaries no fuel squirts in?
