How do you tell if a converter is damaged? I'm having heaps of trouble with my hz tonner, got hold of an auto box, don't know if its tri or hydro (very novice!) it all seems to fit in ok and goes to a degree, but slips and dosn't seem to shift down gears, also put torque converter on motor first, damage done? appreciate any help, Mick

Lightened flywheel 186

Hello.
I have a 186 with good carb, head , hei ignition , good cam etc etc. (street use)
I have a lightened flywheel in my shed. Has anyone else fitted one of these? I am wondering about idle problems. I realise I will have a lot less mass rotating making the engine respond differently. I even heard there will be more vibration from the engine. I have a pretty good idea what will happen but do not know for sure. It is good to hear what others think either from experience or just plain what they reckon.
Cheers
Boyd

wiring

Hi All
Whats the best way to go about rewiring a car your self
as i got some qoutes from $1200 to $1500 from auto electricans to rewire my EK but if i can save some money by doing it my self why not. I was thinking about putting in one of the Painless kits from rare spares or redoing the original harness.Hoping for some advice as to the best way to go about it.

blow through turbo

Hello there! well i posted couple of weeks ago about building a peformance 186. well since then my plans have changed once again. Well after finding a turbo manifold from some old bloke with a hot EH, a quick chat with the old fella and he had me convinced that the turbo setup was the go! "youll spend as much doing a turbo then u would on your other rebuild but get twice the power" he said ! So im now seeking information on turbos,lowering comp and carby prep for a blow through set up .

Building a Very Quick 202

I bought this slapped together worked 202, it would be worth doing up, it already has a Stage 2 Cam, Straight Cut Alloy Timing Gears, Heavy Duty Oil Pickup, Ectronic Dizzy, and a 350 Holley. I bought the engine with big plans, frankly im sick of all the 4cyl turbo jobs getting around town, and i have the means to build this engine up, and blow them all away, i have heared that a very quick 202 can be built using bits and peices from the Red, Blue and Black.
