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

Rotary Engine Premier

Interesting read.
Mazda Roadpacer AP (Anti Pollution)
HJ and HX Holden Premier sedans that were exported to Japan and then had a 13B Wankel Rotary in the Mazda factory, then sold as a Mazda Roadpacer AP. They had 130hp, but very low torque, so poor acceleration and fuel consumption. Top speed was 166kph.

Cheers, Mick.

Thanks in advance.

X2 Engines

Did either of the X2 179 and 186 engines have any "internal" improvements over the standard engine with the same displacement, ie higher compression, cam grind, etc.?

ARF 206-2802 Fly Wheel Bolt Kit

Hello All,

It has been a long while since I took my fly wheel off and had it resurfaced. I cannot remember if the fly wheel bolts were fitted with washers or not?

Can someone let me know if they need flat washers, spring washers or no washers?

Also what torque settings should the bolts be tightened to?

Kind regards
Lionel
