rebuilding fuel pump

Hi people.
I am overhauling my glass bowl fuel pump on 186 HG.
I have a kit and have read the holdenpaedia page. http://holdenpaedia....
can someone please tell me if the thread tape for the bolts and fuel line is just plumbing tape or something special.
should there be some kind of loctite on the bolts?
should there be gasket sealer on the main mounting to the block?
thanks

Putting a 350 chev in an 82 WB UTE

I am looking for any suggestions or tips on putting a crate small block 350 chev in an 82 WB Ute. I don't need to worry about emissions or paperwork just the mechanics of it.
Thankyou

Wb engine swap 202 - 350

G'day

Just wondering how much work would be involved in changing a 202 to a 350 chevy.
The ute currently has the 3 speed on the three and I hope on keeping with a 3 speed manual

Thanks

VB SLE 308 310 Pack

I just bought a VB SLE 308
I was advertised as a 310 Pack

It does not have the vehicle IT Tags

No Tag on left strut bar.

I have a feeling this is not a real 310 Pack

Also car has a choke which is disconnected, is it correct that only 6 cylinders have a choke?

As per the roadworthy

VIN is AVB0248895

Engine number is VT 41275

I have a bad feeling that this is a SLE V6 converted to a V8

Could someone please let me know the difference between HQ-WB and LH-LX V8 engine mount brackets? I thought they were one and the same but I'm hearing they are different.

GM Factory EFI Set Ups

I'm curious to know what GM made different from the VN VR VS to the later model VT V8 engines to change them from a Batch-Fire EFI configuration to Sequential. Can anyone enlighten me? Cheers.

VS Commy running SUPER cold

Can anyone help me? I'm driving a VS that will not warm up during winter. I'm talking the temperature gauge doesn't get to the first line during my half hour drive to and from work. With current temperatures in the Adelaide hills dropping as low as -2 degrees this time of year I'm hating the commute lately. Can not get warm air from the heater at all.
However, if I do half an hours driving in the suburbs with a few stops and starts the bloody thing thinks about overheating and the gauge gets up to half.
I'd really appreciate any advice on this, cheers.

Torana 308 block

I would like some opinions regarding a Torana 308 block I'm thinking of selling.
It has is a legit genuine HT prefix engine number [not someone's re-stamp] it's date code is 18 H 7, to me this means its a 18 August 1977 casting, so LX SLR 5000 or SS 5L and the good thing is it's a standard bore. Both heads have a cast number of 2812174, they appear to have larger than standard valves. So what's your thought's please ?
Thanks Mal

Hey jim here . I'm putting already built 304 vn into my Hq one tonner. I currently run a 253 trimatic pattern with a 350 Holley and a celica 5 speed . The vn 304 turbo pattern has been totally rebuilt with balancing porting flat tops Roller rockers head work and ground. I'm putting a carbie on top.. I'd like to put a 650 hp .. it's a daily drive and I would like it not to stop at every fuel station .. is their much difference between a double pumper and a vac sec 650 in fuel economy.. do I need thermo fans ?? How efficient is getting new pace makers coated for heat transfer..

Rattle developed today in the Grey under load

After a nice day out for a short cruise, and plodding around 50mph in the EK, a slight incline in the road and then a rattle, raised its head under load, not sounding like a normal bearing knock. Under any acceleration whatsoever, the rattle appears, at idle you can barely notice it. I certainly noticed that it was also a bit fluttery under any load, doesn't sound good. I'll get it checked out tomorrow, just a little disappointing as I've only had the ute for a week, and it was getting along pretty well, I had it booked to get it in this week for a solid service and tune and check over.

Flat spots and stalling around corners. New weber 38 DGMS

Hi all

Have just installed a new weber 38 DGMS in the premmie. Goes a lot better than the tired old Rochester that was in there previously. Except around corners where it seems to be starved of fuel and occasionally cuts out. Problem partially relieved by closing the choke. Is it the idle mixture? Idle speed sounds about right. Thanks in advance!
