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.

Thanks,
Sore thumbs

Dodgy starter motor?

Hey guys, went to start the 308 this morning and head out for a cruise. Turned the key and all I got was a few soft knocking sounds and then nothing. Might have been very weak efforts at cranking?

Battery read 12.39V has new dizzy, leads, coil, plugs and was running beautifully the other day?

How do I check for sure that's it's the starter?

Thanks.
