conrod bolts for 202

Just a question, are you still able to buy stock conrod bolts for a 202 or are the ARP bolts the only option?

I have a 202 here that is already 60 thou over, bores still look good and have the hone marks but would like to inspect the bearings as it has probably been sitting for a long time.

I don't really want to spend the $$$ for the arp ones as this will just be a short term solution and have heard reusing the current bolts is not a good idea as they stretch.

So are there any other options for rod bolts?

HG 186 Trimatic to Manual

Hi All.
My HG Van now has the sub frames reattached and the front suspension will go back in next week.
It was last fitted with 186 trimatic but should be 161 and 3 on the tree. I have a 161 already but don't have a manual column and pedal box along with the clutch, gear linkages and 3 speed box.

Port Macquarie Swap. Sunday 2nd June.

As above, it is on the first Sunday in June.
If anyone needs to clear out their shed, they still have a few sites available. They are all pre-booked every year so get in now if you want a site.
I can put the number up anyone wants it.

EH steering column removal

Has anyone removed an EH steering column with the motor and everything else still in place.
Our EH has a bit of play in the steering box and Nathan was thinking of putting one of my spare columns in it. I've got a spare that I've had for 17 years, the car it came from was in a shed for 10 years and had never had wide wheels on it, so it should be pretty good.
I don't think ours will come out without removing a lot of other stuff first.
Anyone done one?

HZ 202 engine into VH Commodore

Hi all,

Just wondering if there would be any issues in using a red 202 from a HZ Holden into a VH Commodore.

I plan to fit the 12 port head and retain all the original emissions gear as per the factory VH.

The original engine in the VH had VL as a prefix, the red 202 from the HZ has ZL as the prefix.

Also the HZ has 202 cast on the block and the VH block 3.3

Will there be any issues with registration?

Thanks
