Holden WB aircon

hi I am currently restoring a WB Ute 1984, we are putting a rebuilt 253 in it, and we decided to use Aircon. everything is already bolted into the firewall for Aircon, there is the 2 big hoses and all the gas stuff there and wiring, but I have a Holden 202 compressor. do you guys think that it will work? it's a Delco one from what I can remember. any other tips you guys have for setting up Aircon would be appreciated

73 lj 202

Hi All,

Looking at rebuilding an engine for my lj currently has the original 173 with small leaks everywhere.

What 202's fit i read there are short and long versions? Red, blue?

Also are all the bolt ons e.g. starter, radiator, alternator suitable?

From my reading any red will fit but will need to ise original sump. Just want to confirm. Cheers All.

Idea of price?

The answer is whatever someone will pay for it. Still, would like some idea of EH air cleaner with filter, water pump and bonnet latch striker plate. All are new, NOS, never been fitted. Getting engine bay back to new, original. Just bought dual note horns, NOS, for $120 postage inc.from Adelaide, stoked as only one of mine ever worked and sounded like it was an effort! Any thoughts appreciated, cheers.

What carbie

Hi all OH fans, I'm about to put a 355 stroker together for a WB 1 Tonner project and was wondering what Carburetor people might think as the best option. I already have a 355 in my Torana and it has a Q-Jet and I'm more than happy with the way it goes but it's a mongrel to start after a few days without use. I've over hauled that carbie, resealed the plugs in the float bowl, fitted a one way valve in the fuel hose but it still looses fuel after a couple of days. So I was thinking of going down another path with this one. I would like to go spread bore with a similar CFM as the Q-Jet.

48-215 starts but dies after 3-5 seconds

Hi,

Have not had my 48-215 out in a while - 4-5 years :-(

When I try to start it fires up well revs high for 3-5 seconds and then stops.

Seems to me it is not getting enough fuel. Could this be fuel pump problem? Carburetor float problem or jet blocked?

I don't think it is on the ignition system side as it turns over strongly and does start and when it is running seems to be firing on all cylinders.

Any assistance greatly appreciated.

Any 1977 HX - HZ or LX Torana 202 CI Holden Owners?

Hello 1977 HX-HZ or LX Torana owners with a 202 Cubic Inch engine.

My 202 motor came with a 161 carburettor, air cleaner and inlet manifold fitted to it.

Would it be possible for someone to take some close up photographs of your engine? It would be great to known what is meant to be there and where all the various hoses start and finish at.

Kind Regards
Lionel

186K V/S 186S

Can anyone tell me if my assumption that the HR performance 186 remained stamped 186K right to the end of production of the HR, or as some has suggested a engine stamped 186S was introduced just before the end of production?
A couple of people have claimed that the HR had a 186S fitted right at the end of HR production, while I know the cam, crank and everything else was the same ( slight change to the head exhaust port )

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
