Performance Engine Cranks

Did the early X2 crankshafts have any machining differences (larger fillets etc) to the standard crankshafts, given that all cranks were forged/steel pre Feb 1967.

Cheers, Mick.

202 rockers tapping on cover - What sorta cam lift would do that?

Hey fellas,

I've recently rebuilt an old 202 at 40thou, and it's got an unknown camshaft in it. I've ran a red head on there with adjustable rocker gear, but more recently switched to a 12 port head with fixed rockers. Both heads I'd had issues with rockers hitting underneath the rocker covers and impingement marks were evident. I've used factory red, then black rocker cover and even an aftermarket redline one to no avail using 2 x rocker cover gaskets. I've since just bought an aussiespeed tall rocker cover, but my question is this:

idle fast cam of HQ Holden

Hello Friends,
I write you here for the first time. I use in Japan now an coverted engine of Holden (HQ 202 Red motor) in my car from England. I bought the car in Sydney from the previoous user after his(?) converting the engine and imported it to Japan. There is a Problem about the carburettor (BXV-2 of Stromberg ) of its engine. Namely fast idle cam is not functioning. The RPM of the engine is almost the same (650) at the choking as at the non-choking. I think it must be over 1000 at the choking.

Starter motor issues

My 6cyli vc commodore has starter motor issues. They are embarrassing me and driving me insane. I cannot work out how to fix it. I’ve been through 3 starter motors new and they all did the same thing. Tick tick tick when trying to start the car. I get out with a hammer bash the solanoid then it might start. I usually have to enlist help the when one taps tthe solanoid and I start it it starts first click normally. I ditched the new starter motors those smaller high torque types for a old original type. Bosch. Same [Naughty Pottyword]. I’m at tethers end with it.

Holden WB 202 to 308 conversion

Gday all,
I’m about to convert my wb Ute from 202 trimatic auto to 308 5 speed manual.
I’ve got a 308 and 5 speed t5 out of a vn v6 commodore. I just wondered what parts I’d need to convert it and if any modifications needed what would they be? For example machining the input shaft to suit the 308, would it be necessary? Also a rough price.
Cheers 👍

Front Wheel Bearings - FJ Holden

G'day all

I've searched the internet to try to find a set of FJ wheel bearings, and it seems they're few and far between. Some sites are saying that 48 (FX) and "early" FJ bearings are the same, and that "late" FJ and FE are the same.

My car was built in July 1954.

Another site says that FX, FJ and early FE are all the same!

They can't all be right!!

My questions are as follows:

1. What (in this case) is an "early" FJ? Would this be the same cut-off date as the "early" FJ wheel bearings (February 1954)?

Heater box repairs

Is it possible to buy the gasket that sits between the heater box and the firewall for HQ-Z Holdens?
I'm also looking for replacement vacuum actuators. Are they still available or is it best to source a similar item (https://www.summitra...)?

Rebuilt 179 HP motor spewing water from the radiator & blowing white smoke :(

Hey fellas. I'd recently just rebuilt my old holden 179 motor, and I'm using a brand new commodore copper radiator. I start the motor up dead cold with the water level full and cap off. It'll seem ok for like 2-3 minutes and literally spews out water like a bloody fire hydrant had been hit from the side of the road with a car. It does this and loses about 4-5 litres literally within seconds. There seems to be what looks like white smoke out of the exhaust. There's no water in the oil, however.

Where on the carburetor of Holden HQ is the throttle stop screw?

Hello,

There is a mention to the throttle stop screw on the page 40 of "the Holden 6 series HQ-HJ". But there is no photo of it in the book. So I can't adjust idling of the HQ engine. Please help me.

Kind regards

HJ Door seals

Hi Crew. I am replacing the RHF door seal and can't for the life of me push the little xmas tree retainers into the inserts. Is there a special tool or technique? or do you not use the inserts? It is all Rare spare parts.
