Holden 179 choking out

Hi,

I don’t know a lot about engines. My old hr has a 179 in it. Was running a year or so ago, now I have gone to start it. Recharged battery, chucked in some fuel etc. will turn over and run for about 10 seconds then just stalls/chokes out. Any ideas? Try cleaning carby?
Cheers..... Haz

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).

Window mechanisms - HQ

Hi.
I've read the post in the Holdenapeadia and am aware that the front windie glass is unique to HQ. My questions are: will HJ+ glass and mechanisms fit into a HQ door; and second, will HQ glass fit into HJ+ mechanism?

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks.

Off topic, but awesome.

It might be photoshopped, but I really hope it isn't.

You have to drive a car from that era to understand the torque they had, and the Blower Bentley was one of the greats.

Stromberg Carby - hesitation on light throttle

was wondering if anyone may have had a similar problem? It's a Stromberg BXUV-2 on a 161 HR. Carby has been cleaned and had a basic kit put through inc new pump, float level, fuel pump and filter etc fine. Car starts and runs well, no problem with power or wide open throttle or idle. No missing. When cruising and slight throttle applied I feel a minor surge or hesitation. If I close the choke a little it goes away. So it's running a little lean on slight/partial throttle.
