What model was fitted with this Stromberg Carburettor?

Hello All,

I have a Stromberg Carburettor with the following numbers written on it ...

Stamped in circle: 2376936
7/32

Stamped on the carburettor base is: 2376878.

The list of Carburettors that appear in https://www.scribd.c... ,document does not go beyond identifying 2376***

It would be great to finally track down what this carburettor was originally made for.

Kind Regards
Lionel

Hose from Air Cleaner HJ Red 202 Motor to front of Rocker Cover

Hello All,

Can anyone let me know the name and part number for the black rubber hose that goes from the side of the air cleaner into the front hole of the rocker cover next to the oil filler cap. It is for a 202 motor probably from a HJ-HZ.

I circled the part on the attached photograph. Is it just the hose or are there any elbows or other fittings that need to be bought. My engine did not come with these parts so I have nothing to take into the spare parts place to say "can I have one of these please?"

Thanks for any assistance.

Kind Regards
Lionel

Electrolysis rust removal

I Just want to say, this method of removing rust is great...
I am soaking a 308 block and the amount of rust that is being removed is astounding.
After 4 hours of it being in the soup... here are the pictures....
This is the block I will be placing in my HQ ute.....
Should cool pretty well after removing this amount of rust in the water gallery's!
Will be soaking this for a few days...
Was pretty rusted up in there.
Just hope it don't pit the machined surfaces.... surely not tho.

Piston Damage, HELP!!

Anyone know why this would happen?
I got this today from the guy that is selling me a 308 block
Which now makes me worry, he said the blocks in great condition, but I got him to bring this piston in today to check what pistons they were.... These are dished yes?
(More suited for forced induction?) Lower compression?
Can someone tell me why exactly this damage happens?
Hope he's not fibbing about the condition of the block as I've already paid him!

Att: Ben

HQ heads, VN valve size, double valve springs, normal rockers
Standard bottom end,
Was thinking this cam....
Crow cam 5649 / 5761 / or 5620 /
Which cam would be suited more for my combo? Will buy new lifters, pushrods as a cam package.
Diff gears, 3.55
Trimatic, stall 2800
I am really wanting to learn all this myself, is this pretty much just all bolt in without a balance?

Also, this is the head... does it look like it's been relieved for more compression? I just picked it up off ebay for $350
Regards.

Help with best budget builds!! Calling all old school 308 & 253 people!

**************ALL INPUTS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!*********

Ok, I am requesting a bit of help from some of the old school engine builders.

I'm currently restoring a HQ 1971 style side ute.
Ground up restoration, the motor in it was down on compression and at the time I had thoughts of going a LS1 / LS3 but after a lot of thought and consideration I am going original V8 to suit the ute.

I have come across a 253 complete AND 308 that's pulled apart, the 253 is a complete runner ready to be bolted in.

These motors are both stock tho....

oil in manifold

what other than a bad pcv valve or cracked pistos, bad rings, or dodgy stem seals can cause oil getting into manifold??
The car sounds like it backfires on idle, then when you rev it it kinda 'whop whop whop'!! it has no power under load and drives like it misses. it idles smooth except for the little backfire sounds. when it initially started i thought a lifter had collapsed but i checked it all rockers are tight and lifters seem good.
everything evaluated.. i seem to have concluded a part of my head gasket has [Naughty Pottyword] itself...

Red 186

Hi all. I was given a old red 186 by my late best mate some years ago and as I now have some spare time I would like to bring this motor back to life. When it was given to me I was told it had a yella terra head. Upon removing the head I found that the valves are stamped yt which is a good thing. The motor can be easily turned over by hand. It came with twin stromberg carbies and alloy gears and I was also told that the camshaft is an XU1 street grind??

Fuel pump to carb line

Hey guys im putting a 34 adm weber onto my 202.

Just wondering what you guys did for a fuel line from the pump to the carb. I dont want to cut up my original line.
I was thinking a braided line but i dont know the size that screws into the pump.

I have heard of people just using rubber fuel line and hose clamps each end.

Any info will help

Cheers
Steve

Fuel Economy

Ive got a 202 6 cylinder 3.3L blue engine in my wb panelvan and my fuel consumption seems to be through the roof. Ive made around 260kms to a 70.4L tank. Which I think roughly calculates to 26L/100km. (Suburban driving.) ,This is assuming that my tank is actually empty when the gauge says it is. I need to know if theres anyway to reduce this as I'm planning to do an interstate road trip in the near future.
Any help greatly appreciated!

34 ADM weber in 202 vacuum port help

Hi guys
Im in the process of installing a 34ADM weber on my 202 and am having issues with what actually connects to what with the vacuum lines.

It fires up and runs with revs, but doesn't want to idle and im guessing its coz I have vacuum ports not connected.

I have looked at the diagram in holdenpaedia but there is one vacuum port not labelled...I have circled it. What does it do or connect to? Do I need it?

Cheers
Jordan

Early Red Motors

An old motor mechanic recently told me that the first batch of the early "red" motors (149 and HP) were made in Canada before they were produced here in Australia!
Is this correct?

Cheers, Mick.
