HG GTS

Gday

I have owned my Monaro for 18 years and I was only 18 when I done a ground up resto on her so I didnt do it up as original. Know I am looking at what all the numbers and tags all mean

My HG is a V8 (0837) and my question is how do i know what was the original motor was a 253 or 308

It was put together in Mosman park in Perth (L6)

thanks

Dean

Help on which spark plug for a red 202

I'm servicing my recently purchased HR with a red 202 (QL code block) so figured I'd just replace the spark plugs as part of that and thought it should be as easy as taking out a spark plug then buying another set of the same.

The existing plugs have carbon build up on the thread. They are NGK-BP5EFS.

I just would have thought only the head should extend into the combustion chamber and not the thread or am I wrong?

oh no

well This was the main fuse on my TPI chev, after leaving the cetec charger on for 3 weeks while at work.
Have changed the fuse and holder that looked like a over cooked snag on a BBQ lol
Battery is charged and starter motor has power to it with the multi meter at the right volts. There is power to the fuel pumps and the computer
BUT no go ? it wont turn over or even a clicking noise like they do ?

My question is, is it the ignition switch ? or something else ?
Any help would be much appreciate

308 cam timing.

Hi all,
Has anyone ever checked their 308 cam timing with degree wheel and dial gauge. I'd be interested in their findings.
I have a theory that most 308s could do with about half a tooth advance with a good timing chain, and a full tooth with a loose chain.

Appears to be a virgin bore 😊

Strip off the head of the 202 for HD & it appears to be a virgin bore, the head gasket even has Holden stamped into it.

Finally the engine coming together. About 12 months to find a virgin Block, six months waiting for Pistons etc. Still it'll be worth the wait when I put the foot down on that first drive.

HT Alternator bracket

Hi Guys. I am in the process of putting a 304 into a HT and have come accross an issue which i am sure has been solved by someone else before. The standard 304 Alternator bracket is too low and the alternator has no room for adjustment before hitting chassis rail.
I have heard of some guys putting in early commodore brackets that are on the drivers side. My question is, are they up higher and will early commodore (assuming 308 engine) bracket fit on a 304 head?
any information would guide me in the right direction.
thanks guys
