HZ Engine No Identification

Hi,
I recently purchased a HZ sedan which seems to be untouched by the one owner. I am curious to see whether the 202 is relative to the build date of the car. If someone could decipher or point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.
Build date on tag: 09-78
Engine No. QL7xxxxx
Engine date stamp: 6Dx (either a 6 or 8, need to remove oil filter)

Removing 202 from WB

G'day Brainstrust
I'm about to remove the 202 from my WB tunna. My query is that the motor is connected to the aussie 4speed with the bench seat shifter, so is it necessary to remove the whole shifter assembly with linkages to get the engine out with box attached or can the shifter come through the trans tunnel hole with a bit of wriggling and jacking up the front of the car? Having never done this before with a aussie 4speed box a bit of sage advice would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers all
Al

HJ Kingswood stock Stromberg

Hi, I'm about to put a carby kit in the old single Strommy. What's a good starting point for the idle mixture screw to get it running well enough to get to the servo for a tune up? All the way in, back it out "X" times. That kinda thing. Thanks Gerry

Bell Housing Pattern

What other engines in the Chev/GM range share the same bell housing bolt pattern at the Holden (red/blue) engines? Any four cylinders in the 2.0 - 3.5 litre engine size?

Cheers, Mick.

Silvolite Pistons

Hi guys, does anyone here have any experience with or opinions on Silvolite brand pistons? I've noticed they are being sold in common overbore sizes for 186s on ebay as of late. Seller says "manufactured in America (Mexico) by Silvolite", I never knew Mexico was part of the USA, I wonder if The Donald knows?

HG engine identification - 253 or 308?

Hi all,

I'm lookin at a HG ute that I need some help identifying what the original engine was.

From the tags I've worked out it's a Kashmir White/Green interior V8 Kingswood. It's running currently running a 308 Trimatic and banjo diff (single wheeler). The current owner has said the engine had been replaced when he bought it however the Trimatic and diff are 100% factory original.

Is there any way to determine from the ID plates if it was 253 or 308 when it left the factory?.

Cheers - Neil
