Orange EH Wagon with Modified Dash...

Does anyone know who owns the Orange EH Wagon that features on EH Chat and I believe went to the 15th Summernats and probably 16th!?!

I need to talk to him unless someone else would know how to attach a Sport Comp Autogauge Speedo to a 3 Spd Crash Box!?!

engine help

I am having problems with stalling and backfiring when the motor is hot. I have replaced the condensor, dist cap, and rotor button. I have run out of ideas on what it could be. Can anyone help?

Check this ---> LOWEST FUEL PRICES <--- Check This

Hey Peoples,

I've been a member of a free web based service that monitors fuel prices through the metropolitan outlets Australia wide.

That service is just about to get a whole lot better.

Up until now they have been only monitoring ULP prices, but in two weeks time they begin covering prices of ULP, Diesel, LPG, Premium and LRP! This is a result of feedback collected from members. These guys listen to our needs!

186 dizzy

Hi all,

I have a 186 (red) that has started running really rough (suddenly) I have cleaned the carby (weber 32/36) etc. I have 1cm of play in the dizzy rotor cam .. I am guessing this is too much? Also, how do I tell if i have the lucas or Bosch?

Does anyone know a good place to get a new rotor gear (should it need one) in western syd? What are the chances of the engine side cam being damaged?

NASCO chrome body strips

Howdy

Bought an EK recently to do up and the fella I bought it off said the chrome strips ruuning along the length of the car were NASCO accessories. I've looked at the NASCO accessories booklet on the web for Ek's and they didn't seem to make these strips or did they ??

If they did can you buy replica's of them from somewhere

cheers

Mike

EJ Paint job

G'day.
I've recently bought a good original EJ Premier in Perth and had it sent up to my home in Broome. I'm now shopping around for a paint job. Apart from a bit of finishing off where I've cut out o few minor bits of rust the body is clean and straight.
The best quote I've got so far is $4000. That's for a good quality job, inside & out in 2 pak. Trouble is in Broome there aren't many spray painters and even fewer that are interested in working on an old Holden.

My EK

My 62 EK , warm 202 , 5 speed

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Motor run in

I just got a 202 motor dropped in

The run in leaflet says to accelerate to 60-90km/h in low gear (2nd in auto) for 6-7 times a drive.

Ive got a 3 on tree. Does that mean to over rev in 1st gear to 60km/h???

Cheers

air intake for 308

just wondering if anyone could tell me if i would be wasting my time fitting one or two vacuum cleaner hoses from the front of the car and pointing them flush towards the air cleaner? The engine is a stock 308 except 80% of the time on LPG and stright through exhaust and extractors,
the air filter is a k&n high flow filter.

Would this make any differance regarding performance? I know it will keep her a bit cooler, and how would i go about mixture, for instance going down a freeway? Would it run dry? Cheers for any help with this.
