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.

Holden EH 179HP Carbie?

Hi all,
I'm looking to restore an old EH holden running a 179HP motor. The motor itself is just stamped EH, but I am wondering what the factory carbie is for one of these. Is it by chance one of those tall single barrel strombergs? or did they come out with something different?

Thanks In Advance!

RE: Conrod bolts

"Quote"

"You can't just change the rod bolts, when you change rod bolts you need to have the rods closed and honed by a machine shop."

I wasn't aware of this, I thought you just pressed the old bolts out and the new ones go straight in? What is the process to do this?

conrod bolts for 202

Just a question, are you still able to buy stock conrod bolts for a 202 or are the ARP bolts the only option?

I have a 202 here that is already 60 thou over, bores still look good and have the hone marks but would like to inspect the bearings as it has probably been sitting for a long time.

I don't really want to spend the $$$ for the arp ones as this will just be a short term solution and have heard reusing the current bolts is not a good idea as they stretch.

So are there any other options for rod bolts?

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

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.
