Lx Torara with 202

Howdy holden Boys & Girls

I've got a u buet LX coupe at home with a tired 202. Another complete rebuild donk cost varies from $1200 - $1300... I know of one for $1000... Is this a good price for a long 202? Also, my mate has a set of triple stroms that he'll give me... With this increase in power, how much more fuel would it use?? Would it be worth it?

Cheers, Nik

Looking for advice on what to look for when buying a 1 ton ute

Hi guys!

I was wondering if anyone could help me on what to look for when buying a 1 ton ute. I'm after a HJ-HZ 308 auto for a workhorse. My main concern is are there any common places for cracks in the chassis? Also any other general info would be greatly appreciated.

Your advice is welcome.

Hi all.

I've had my one tonner for about a month now. I replaced the speedo two weeks ago. (last one did not work at all when I got the ute). Problem is that it reads about 80Kh when I'm doing at least 100Kh (Keeping up with the rest of the traffic. It has a Celica 5spd but not sure what the diff ratio is. Any idea on how I might get this corrected?

The other item I would like some advise on is changing the dizzy for an electronic version. I have the Red 202 no mods yet but will be putting a set of extractors, and about a 2" exhaust.

From Indonesia

Hi....our holden HJ Statesman De Ville has just had a body makeover....however it is hard to start, needs a lot of fuel pumping to get her going, and then seems to go okay until the engine is turned off. If the temperature is up to half on the guage it refuses to start until cooled down to a quarter on the guage. One local mechanic says its the distributor rotor thats at fault, another says the holden needs a new carburettor. Looking for some good advice as this holden looks so good......email me an I'll send you a photo but I'd sure appreciate some info on the starting problem.
