hz petrol tank sender installation

gday all,

can any of you boys pls advise if there's any tips-and-tricks
with installing me new (ie. reconditioned) petrol tank sender?

i'm using the same o-ring coz the one i got with the reco
job was too thin and wouldnt seal. i'm just gonna turn it
upside down.

i tried getting a new, nitrile o-ring from cbc bearings but none of them were thick enough. i tried 4 different sizes..

someone told me to apply a liddle bit of silcone sealer,
then fit the retainer locking washer/ring.

any ideas boys?

bij.

Performance Engine Cranks

Did the early X2 crankshafts have any machining differences (larger fillets etc) to the standard crankshafts, given that all cranks were forged/steel pre Feb 1967.

Cheers, Mick.

202 rockers tapping on cover - What sorta cam lift would do that?

Hey fellas,

I've recently rebuilt an old 202 at 40thou, and it's got an unknown camshaft in it. I've ran a red head on there with adjustable rocker gear, but more recently switched to a 12 port head with fixed rockers. Both heads I'd had issues with rockers hitting underneath the rocker covers and impingement marks were evident. I've used factory red, then black rocker cover and even an aftermarket redline one to no avail using 2 x rocker cover gaskets. I've since just bought an aussiespeed tall rocker cover, but my question is this:

idle fast cam of HQ Holden

Hello Friends,
I write you here for the first time. I use in Japan now an coverted engine of Holden (HQ 202 Red motor) in my car from England. I bought the car in Sydney from the previoous user after his(?) converting the engine and imported it to Japan. There is a Problem about the carburettor (BXV-2 of Stromberg ) of its engine. Namely fast idle cam is not functioning. The RPM of the engine is almost the same (650) at the choking as at the non-choking. I think it must be over 1000 at the choking.

Holden WB 202 to 308 conversion

Gday all,
Iโ€™m about to convert my wb Ute from 202 trimatic auto to 308 5 speed manual.
Iโ€™ve got a 308 and 5 speed t5 out of a vn v6 commodore. I just wondered what parts Iโ€™d need to convert it and if any modifications needed what would they be? For example machining the input shaft to suit the 308, would it be necessary? Also a rough price.
Cheers ๐Ÿ‘

Any one know much about the quality of Hypatec and Endurotec pistons please? A friend in the UK is looking at getting a 202 (red motor) rebuilt and he is having a bit of trouble sourcing pistons. He can get the ones listed above but can't find much info on them.
The size he will be using are plus 0.030"

Thanks in advance.

Cheers, Mick.

Rebuilt 179 HP motor spewing water from the radiator & blowing white smoke :(

Hey fellas. I'd recently just rebuilt my old holden 179 motor, and I'm using a brand new commodore copper radiator. I start the motor up dead cold with the water level full and cap off. It'll seem ok for like 2-3 minutes and literally spews out water like a bloody fire hydrant had been hit from the side of the road with a car. It does this and loses about 4-5 litres literally within seconds. There seems to be what looks like white smoke out of the exhaust. There's no water in the oil, however.

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.
