202 Questions...

I was looking at the compliance plate on my tonner and it says that the diff is a GM9. Does anyone know what ratio this is?

Also, I have a trimatic box. The speedo is reading 20k's too high. The speedo sender gear is a green gear (I think about 19 teeth). Can anyone confirm if the sender is the correct unit for this box?

Cheers.

Any Ideas ?

Guys I am aware that this is a sensative issue but the dash on my HJ ute is shagged, I have fitted a smaller stearing wheel and I cannot now see the revs or the speed. I appreciate that not seeing this info is sometimes a good thing however I will need to replace the whole dash and wondered if anyone has fitted any other type of dash or modified an existing one. Is it posible to manufacture a custom one and does anyone know who I can contact in Melbourne for help with this. Keep the utes going.

Starter Motor

My starter motor is too close to my Pacemaker extractors. Black engine. There is a plate between the two, but not sure if it's a gasket or not, as the starter motor gets hot anyway. If I place some sort of gasket between the two will this problem stop? How do I rectify the fact that the starter motor and the extractors are soooo close to each other? Your help and suggestions are much appreciated.

VK 308

I want to buy a 308 VK, but I have found out that it has only 8kw more power then the 202 EFI, does any one think that is is still worth getting the 308 also considering the running costs? Thanks

Hi Gary the ownwer of the SWEET FXHG MONARO RESTORATION photo album.

Gary, I see in your engine bay album that on your 186S manifold that there is a bracket for the return spring.
What I need to know is, is that spring bracket factory ???
and if so do you have another one lying around for sale.
if you check out my album Yogies HR you will see the type that I have. I dont think this is factory.

253 FACTS????

Hi all. Just have a question for ya's. I have just been in a "conversation/disagreement" with my boss and another guy about the ol' 253 4.2L. What i want to know is, is it true that the 253 were renound for their fuel enconomy and that they were one of the best v8 motors ever built in australia. (Thats what the other guy said) and that holden made a tough decision into getting rid of them. They also said that the 253 were better than the 186 and 202 motors. I personally think that thats a load of [Naughty Pottyword] and the reason they did they did get rid of the 253 was the 308 had just as good economy but more power. Can anyone enlighten me on this.
