202 Camshaft info?

Can anyone tell me the difference between 2 x GM cams I have. One is a GM7 and the other is a GM11. I've got no idea what they were originally from, but they're currently sitting in a couple of 3.3/202 blue motors.

Thanks in advance fellas!

Holden 179 choking out

Hi,

I don’t know a lot about engines. My old hr has a 179 in it. Was running a year or so ago, now I have gone to start it. Recharged battery, chucked in some fuel etc. will turn over and run for about 10 seconds then just stalls/chokes out. Any ideas? Try cleaning carby?
Cheers..... Haz

hard to start torana 202 uc

have had this problem for some time, decided to do some thing.I started by giving carby a good clean even the throat with 900wet using petrol as lubricant,make sure you take the main jet out as well as the metering jet which is above main jet(it just pushes out).Clean all parts,blow jets out with compressed air including all gally's (air holes in body of carby).

Stromberg Carby - hesitation on light throttle

was wondering if anyone may have had a similar problem? It's a Stromberg BXUV-2 on a 161 HR. Carby has been cleaned and had a basic kit put through inc new pump, float level, fuel pump and filter etc fine. Car starts and runs well, no problem with power or wide open throttle or idle. No missing. When cruising and slight throttle applied I feel a minor surge or hesitation. If I close the choke a little it goes away. So it's running a little lean on slight/partial throttle.

Heavy throttle on 202 with trip SUs

Hi all

I have a mild red 202 with triple 1 3/4 SUs. My acceletor pedal is extremely heavy getting off idle. Feels light enough once Im moving. I believe it relates to manifold vacuum but how do I resolve?

My setup is not uncommon. Im hoping someone has had this problem and worked out a nice solution. Im keen for ideas.
Thanks
L

Is the FB coil a ballast coil?

I've replaced the points with an electronic ignition and "standard" 3 ohm coil. Starts ok and runs for two minutes or so then starts missing under load, backfiring etc. is this because I should have a ballast coil with 1.5 ohms? Thanks in advance.

Holden 179HP Carbie Options?

Hey Fellas,
I've really started to rebuild my old HP motor for my old girl, and just wondering some carbie options?...

The motor has had a 202 re-bore "so is essentially a 186?", and crow 35667 cam with new JP Helical timing gears. I've got a HEI setup for it and a worked 9 port head which will be running roller rockers. The head has 1-3/4" Intake Valves and 1-1/2" Exhaust valves. Valves are stainless steel ones. I've also got extractors to fit upto it.

308, Trying to find a rattle

Hi All,

I got my 308 rebuilt, about 2 years ago. Has a Quadrajet, Bosch HEI, edelbrock performer, crane 276, 30 thou flat tops L34 heads always running 98 octane.

It would have all of about 500kms at this point. Starts and runs well. Issue i have is when cruising in 4th (Aussie 4 speed) If i lower the revs then accelerate theres a funny sort of flapping/rattle noise. It dosent sound nasty but it is annoying. I have found that if i accelerate and pull the choke slightly in (manual choke) it stops, but the engine bogs down.

Electric fuel pump into hj

Hi, does anyone know the best way to modify a fuel tank for a hj sedan to run an electric fuel pump or the best way to set them up?
Ive read alot of forums and dr terry on here gave a solution with putting in a tank out of a vp/vr commy and get spout welded in, but that was 6yrs ago.
Theres also a place over east that can modify an original tank for 600.
Cheers in advance

X2 Twin Strommies

Were the twin carbies fitted to the X2 179 and 186 engines the same as the single carby used on the stock engines, but with venturi restrictors and re-jetted, or were they a carby with a smaller sized venturi?

Cheers, Mick.

Quick 64

Well I finally got it going. Had a few dramas with the brand new quick fuel carb. The o’ring on the needle and seat was wrong and there was a spec of zinc plating holding the needle open. All fixed now. Happy days ahead.

Block ID.

Hi guys!
Cheers for the add to your group.

My brother has just picked up a VH commodore with a HG 308 block. Nov 11 70. (L110)

There are some other numbers on the side after the 308H30###.
There's a space then possibly L867
Would anybody be able to help us out with them last letter and numbers? Could be 4867.

Thanks heaps!

Mick.

Head 202 piston- Grrrr... Can anyone throw me a piston?

Hey Fellas.

Recently started to clean up a 202 for my old holden, but upon starting to re-ring the thing I've found a broken piston in-between the 2 upper rings. Just wondering if anyone could donate or sell me a 202 piston on a rod cheap? It'd probably need to be posted out to me "in rural Tassie", but It'd be bloody appreciated!! I've been looking around and putting the feelers out there, but so far to no avail..

Thanks in advance!
JP.
