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.

Trimatic conversion for the Dirty D

After wanting to do it since I bought the HD I swapped the powerglide for a reco'ed trimatic & geeze it's already made a big difference to the bottom end performance of the tired old 179 this done by using a rod off the column to a right hand shift trimatic.

Hp 179 in a land rover

Hi,

I have a siezed hp179 in an old landy.

I have been able to get the fly wheel going a bit , maybe 3” to the right and left. Dosing the cylinders with diesel. In order to help things along , i was wondering if anyone can tell me what size the bolts are that fit onto the harmonic balancer so i can make up some kind of wrench.

Cheers,

David

EH Front End Spacers

G'day all,
One of the spacers on my front end has rusted pretty badly. It's one of four that go through the subframe - the four subframe bolts run through each spacer to hold the front end on to the subframe. I've searched high and low for a replacement with no luck. Any ideas on where I can get a replacement? I was thinking that I could get one cut from some tube stock but they are a weird size...
Cheers,
Darren.

Temp switch answered

Recently wanted to know about temp switch, red six EH on. Correct one to use, if it should screw all the way home (if below thermostat) and the supposed myth of dash warning light coming on when cranked? Found my answers on fb, and the myth proven fact. See pics, cheers all. ps Dr Terry is still God 😉
