Holley 350 Setup 202

Hi again folks,

I got another question for you of a different vein. I realize that a 350 Holley on a stock 202 is not the best carb option however it is better than a stuffed stromie that I already have. I am wanting some advice in settup up the 350 to run as best as it can. I looked up the standard jetting etc on the Holley website for the 350 I have and this is the info:

Part: 0-7448
Model: 2300
CFM: 350
Renew Kit: 37-1536
Needle&Seat: 6-504
Primary Main Jet: 122-61
Pri Metering Blk: 134-203
Pri Power Valve: 125-85
Pri Discharge Nozzle Size: 0.031

What would you recommend I run?

Just Confirming - was 'ping monster'

OK,

I jumped onto eBay and found someone selling an electronic dizzy from a blue 6cyl motor complete with solid state coil and leads. This will be OK for a red 202 right? Any tricks or traps to fitting it? Do I need to use the cog off the end of my points dizzy or should the cog on the blue motor dizzy be fine?

Ping Monster

Recently my stock 202 started pinging a lot especially up hills. Also, running along the freeway it has less power than it ought to and has been getting hot. I checked the timing and sure enough it was advanced so I brought it back down which seemed to work for a couple of days. But one hot day later that week it started getting hot again and pinging like crazy. I re-checked the timing that night and it was retarded quite strongly so I re-adjusted it. Since then I re-set the timing once more (minor adjustment) the best I could but the pinging still occurs up minor slopes and the engine is running gradually hotter and hotter.

vacuum wipers

Hi, I'm a newby to this group. I've just bought a 54 FJ that I'm trying to register.
Where can I get parts for the vacuum motor that operates the wipers?
Anyone had exerience with these?
I think I need a gasket, and a couple of seals.
Then a good clean and a new hose should do the trick.
Thanks,
Adrian

202 Fuel Problems

I've just recently rebuilt my red 202 from top to bottom, it is now 60 thou over with a mildly oversized cam. The problem I am having is that now it isnt getting enough fuel, I can put my foot down and it goes and then hesitates like its starving, I've found I can pull the choke on just a fraction and she comes good, but I can't very well drive around with the choke on all the time. It has a stock carby and no work done to the head, I tried to find out about different sized jets but the guy at the shop said that there is only one sized jet for these stromberg carbies and it is adjustable, however no amount of adjusting the fuel mixture will get it to run sweet, it idles like a mongrel dog.

missing

Hi all.
Just after some advice, my 308 misses severely when the timing is set correctly but is smooth with timing advanced approximately 36 degrees. I have replaced dizzy cap rotor button all leads all plugs and coil. it has been checked for any stuck valves and all mechanics agree it is an ignition problem not fuel. Also i have replaced the module on the dizzy.
Any Ideas.
Thanks in advance

Clutches for 6cyl's

Can any tell me the diamiter of a standard 6cyl clutch and a one-tonner 6cyl clutch and pressure plate? I just bought a 6 spring WB one-tonner clutch to fit to my HJ one-tonner using a UC torana cable operated bell housing. Now problem is, the pressure plate, is too big for the flywheel I have (Pressure plate to flywheel bolt spacing). I have two flywheels, both are part numbers 7420116 (and most likely originally out of torana's).

Nuggy's brokem brakes

Hi Nuggy,

I figured we should start our own thread rather than continue hijacking someone else's...

If it doesn't pull to one side under light braking, that would tend to lessen the chances of it being adjustment or heavy contamination of the shoes...it won't rule them out, just makes it less likely that they're the cause.

They should have checked your front wheel bearings when they did the alignment, so that is less likely to be the cause too but it could still contribute.

crook carb ???

hey guys, my car has been stalling lately, like the engine is getting too much air, or not enough gas. it only seems to do it on gas, so im going to go thru the gas line and clamp up all the connectors where i can.
but i am wondering if its the actual carb itself
the primary jets are always open, ive been told they can stay open while on idle. but they stay open when i turn the car off, im sure this aint supposed to happen.
