Where on the carburetor of Holden HQ is the throttle stop screw?

Hello,

There is a mention to the throttle stop screw on the page 40 of "the Holden 6 series HQ-HJ". But there is no photo of it in the book. So I can't adjust idling of the HQ engine. Please help me.

Kind regards

GREY MOTOR - FREE

I retrieved a Grey Motor from the local rubbish dump for free. The engine number is B168328 and I believe it was from an FB or EK Ute. In the steel pile was a couple of front guards but they appeared to be totally stuffed. There was also a front bench seat which was bent and in a very sad state. It had metal trim around the base and seat adjuster area which I think is ute and van only?

Dodgy starter motor?

Hey guys, went to start the 308 this morning and head out for a cruise. Turned the key and all I got was a few soft knocking sounds and then nothing. Might have been very weak efforts at cranking?

Battery read 12.39V has new dizzy, leads, coil, plugs and was running beautifully the other day?

How do I check for sure that's it's the starter?

Thanks.

202 Engine mounting brackets

The standard pair has two sizes, can anyone advise which side the large one goes on? I think its the LH (Passenger) side but need to makesure so the engine is aligned properly. Also believe the brackets sit asymmetrically, LH in front of the rubber mount, RH behind the rubber mount. Cheers for any info.

HZ fuel line

Hi, I bough my HZ panel van about two months ago. It is log only with the petrol tank, lines and filled removed. I'm removing the log as it needs replacing. I'm trying to find info on the fuel line from the tank. I have looked on the net and in manuals. Does anyone have a diagram of where the line goes and what size? Thanks. Ric

202 Auto stammering in gear and running rough.

So I've got a 202 blue with a trimatic behind it. Running a varajet manifold and using an adaptor plate for the carbie. I'd had this issue where the motor was stammering, like there was some kinda major miss going on there, but in park or neutral it didn't seem as bad "although I'm sure it was still happening". It was running bloody rough as guts! Today I thought I'd really investigate it. Thought of what possible probs could be going on so I:

Installed brand new manifold gasket and tightened the guts out of it! - No difference!

Water pump failure, internal damage?

hey fellas,

I was driving home from work and I'm guessing the water pump bearing failed causing it and the fan to explode into the rad. Damage includes all pulleys,timing belt slipped off,balancer,radiator and the obvious of course. My question is would there be any internal damage at all, I'm guessing there would be chunks of metal from the pump where the pump is on the block.The car ran for another 10 meters as I was mid corner and to get the the side of the road to avoid traffic. My concerns are for the internals versus the list above.

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!
