Holden Red 6 Cylinder - Stromberg

Hi from Perth.

I was putting together a set of triple CD-175 Stromberg's
for my mates 202. I was thinking why did Peter brock win
so many races with a XU-1 202 compared to his first Holden
race car, which was a HR Premier with a 186S.

Well a photo says 1000 words - A double barrel WW Stromberg
(for a 186S) put next to one of the CD-175's.

202 Thermostat

Hey,

Does a red 202 thermostat housing require an O-ring, or a paper gasket only?
The old one was so degraded I can’t tell.
Thanks all.

Red Motor - know nothing, need help

Anyone with any mechanical knowledge, your wisdom will be greatly appreciated:

I have recently inherited an HZ SL, it runs very nicely at the moment but that may be more due to good luck rather than good management. I have next to no experience with engines.

I was having a look at the motor, and found this black rubber tube that seems to run nowhere, which seems odd. All its mates are plugged into something on both ends, but not this little fella.

Rocker gear on a 202 head.

I'm putting a old 202 yella-terra head on my 179,, Do I have to use original rocker gear (saddles) or can I use the old (179) adjustable type. Cheers, Norm.

Block deck height variations

Just doing some research into fitting a blue crank into a 186P. Looking around, it seems that the STOCK piston compression height on a 186 was 1.78 and for the 202 it was 1.68. If you were to subtract 125 thou from the 186 you get 1.655, a difference of 25 thou.
