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

GEN light on dash

Hey Team
I have a 73 HQ and yesterday after switching her off then trying to start again there was nothing. Not even trying to crank over. The only light on is the GEN one in the dash! Any similar faults?

CD175

This photo is for Holdenpaedia to be added to CD Stromberg
section. These triple CD-175 carbies are off LJ 202 XU1 and
the CD-150 carbies were off LC 186 XU1.

I am pretty sure this is the original triple fuel block and
linkage set up, except for the centre linkage which needs
replacing.

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.
