Engine

No oil pressure!!

Hey guys can somebody please help me. Just freshly rebuilt my 192 (186) and I've primed everything as I've built it. I've gone to crank her over to start the initial break in process and my gauge doesn't even rise to the first small notch (gauge in picture) it gets about half way to the first notch when running and stays there. Can someone please help, cheers

Changing single leaking intake manifold bolts

I have recently changed my leaking 253 v8 intake manifold gasket (twice) using gasket sealant front and rear instead of cork but have since found a weaping leak which is not taking up after a couple of months. The leak is from a couple of the bolts which go into the water jacket.. and from memory the bolts had rust imperfections but i reused them in a hurry.

Can i swap out only the weaping bolts without taking the entire manifold off again?

starter motor issues...

ok my 202 has a starter motor issue which is sending me batty..
1: it sometimes starts first click. no worries at all.
2: sometimes it throws out and just clunks without engaging.
3: sometimes it just clicks and I have to tap it.
4: sometimes it just spins without engaging.
5: sometimes it will start 1st click, but if its cold and doesnt stay idling, itll just click and not start.
usually one of these things happen when theres a problem, not every symptom in the book at different times.

HP STAMPED BLOCKS

Just curious... someone told me a long time ago I don't really remember who exactly but they reckon the HP blocks were stronger than non HP stamped blocks because they had Nickel involved in the casting of the blocks, he was refering to 186 blocks though,from memory. I have a 179 hp block so thats why im wondering.
I dunno much about it but is that true or bull[Naughty Pottyword]?
I the holdenpeadia page it says nothing about that.
Thanks
Grtant

Weber ADM 34 onto Red Six

I am researching putting a Weber ADM 34 carby onto a Red 186.
I have read a few posts on Old Holden but can't determine what inlet manifold people are using. Is there an adaptor to fit onto the 186s WW stromberg inlet or do I need to get a Holley 350 inlet and adaptor. Thanks in advance for any responses.
Cheers Lindsay

Heater Hose question

OK..HG Belmont. 1970 186..NO fan heater..What side of the motor do the heater hoses run? Over the engine behind the carby or infront under top hose and back toward firewall beside carby? A pic of an original would be great

thanks

161 head on blue 202 block

Putting a 161 head on blue 202 head
Do you have to drill out the water jackets in the block to suit the 161 head (use 161 head gasket as a template)

What push rods do you use

Do you have to do anything else

Red 202 fan clutch and shroud setup

I want to put a shroud and fan clutch on my warm red 202 HZ van which has a V8 radiator. I can get a new shroud and new fan clutch but

1) I can't work out where the shroud is supposed to mount (think I'm missing brackets on the radiator)

2) can't find the blades for sale anywhere (to attach to fan clutch)

My current fan is 45mm (17.5") with a 2.5" spacer which I don't believe is stock and won't fit with the shroud (which I believe is 17" max?)

I'm located in Coburg, if anyone in Melbourne has parts for sales I'd appreciate it.

FJ service information

Hi Guys,

Im not a car guy..I build and fly recreational aircraft. So I guess, I know how to use tools, and are quite competent with maintaining two aircraft myself. etc.

I need some info or help with an FJ.

So can some one point me in the right direction to drop the oil and service an old FJ business sedan. I believe the car has no oil filter..is that right..? and an oil bath air filter(something I know nothing about).

The car is in good condition and had a ground up resto about 12 years ago...and has been driven about 5000 miles in that time.

Anyone know what this Holden 6 exhaust manifold came from?

Found a photo online of a Holden 6 exhaust manifold, i've not seen this type before. Looks like it's a 12 port but it's a different type to what is on a blue 202. Thanks

Parts for 202 Electronic Distributor

Hey all,
Just in the process of upgrading my HQ red 202 to an electronic distributor to get rid of the points. I already have the distributor and coil, so the parts i need to know are types of plugs, leads, dissy cap and rotor that are best suited for the upgrade?
What are best simple and straight forward parts suited for a plain and stock red 202 with no fancy carbs or manifolds or anything on it.
Cheers
