Gas 186

I am planning a mild rebuild of my 186.

I intend to build it for gas only and would appreciate any suggestions of the way to go with this plan.
It runs through a trimatic to a 9" under my van. I need some good torque but nothing too greedy.
I am definitely considering a Yella Terra Gas Head - Is this a sound idea?
Also am interested in replacing mechanicaly driven components with electrical - again, opinions?

auto choke

G'day, this post isn't on holdens (sorry!), but i read a post a while back about a Datsun and i was hoping someone would be able to help me.
Ive got a 78 Datsun/Nissan skyline. Its a 2.4 6 cylinder L24. One problem is it seems to take way to long to warm up??? Also I think the auto choke is stuffed coz i have to kick the accelerator to stop it revving to high (up around 2000 then back to 700rpm idling). Could someone give me advice on fitting a manual choke or whatever needs to be done

Starting problems

hi everyone, andrew here
iv recently replaced the engine head on my 186 with one off another engine, but in better condition. Iv also used the intake and exhaust manifolds, and the oil pump, also because they are in better condition, although on trying to start the thing up, it wouldn't start.The engine turns over, the ignition is working fine, i havn't checked whether fuel is getting into the engine, but i find this problem very frustrating and i now have a flat battery :(

holden 186 carburetor problems

hi everyone, my name is andrew, im 17 years old,
iv got a holden 186, and i seem to be having trouble with the carburetor. When the engine is idling, there should be no vacume advance. When i open the throttle fully, the vacume is very minimul. the ports and cables arn't blocked, and im stumped to whats wrong with it.
It could be that, a while ago i replaced all the gaskits on the carburetor, and when i took the thing apart, the little wire restrictor fell out, and i wasn't sure where it was suppose to go, so i just guessed. the engine seemed to run ok, apart from that it has barly any vacume advance. Please help, the car drinks to much....Does anyone have any tips on improving the economy to??

I'll Ask the audience, thanks Eddie.

OK, player. "Audience the Q is" Why are the posts ignored on this forum?
A- It's not worth the head-ache.
B- It seems that slagging those who know a little about the subject may be of importance.
C- I can't pay my phone bill is not a tech question.
D- Blah blah blah.
