Holden 179 choking out

Hi,

I don’t know a lot about engines. My old hr has a 179 in it. Was running a year or so ago, now I have gone to start it. Recharged battery, chucked in some fuel etc. will turn over and run for about 10 seconds then just stalls/chokes out. Any ideas? Try cleaning carby?
Cheers..... Haz

Electric vacuum booster conversion

Just Wondering whether anyone has done an electric booster conversion for their early holden 6 or v8? I'm starting to put together a new set of sidedraught carbies for a new motor that'll eventually put into the old girl and use on the road, and past experience tells me that the brake booster isn't going to be as effective, so I'm planning on converting it over by maybe adapting a VE/VF commodore one.

If anyone here has done this kinda conversion, and could give me some tips and let me know whether it was any good, I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks in Advance!

Holden 179HP Carbie Options?

Hey Fellas,
I've really started to rebuild my old HP motor for my old girl, and just wondering some carbie options?...

The motor has had a 202 re-bore "so is essentially a 186?", and crow 35667 cam with new JP Helical timing gears. I've got a HEI setup for it and a worked 9 port head which will be running roller rockers. The head has 1-3/4" Intake Valves and 1-1/2" Exhaust valves. Valves are stainless steel ones. I've also got extractors to fit upto it.

Holden EH 179HP Carbie?

Hi all,
I'm looking to restore an old EH holden running a 179HP motor. The motor itself is just stamped EH, but I am wondering what the factory carbie is for one of these. Is it by chance one of those tall single barrel strombergs? or did they come out with something different?

Thanks In Advance!

HP STAMPED BLOCKS

Just curious... someone told me a long time ago I don't really remember who exactly but they reckon the HP blocks were stronger than non HP stamped blocks because they had Nickel involved in the casting of the blocks, he was refering to 186 blocks though,from memory. I have a 179 hp block so thats why im wondering.
I dunno much about it but is that true or bull[Naughty Pottyword]?
I the holdenpeadia page it says nothing about that.
Thanks
Grtant

Dr Terry

or anyone else with a good knowledge base, what other engines if any, be it Four, Six, or Eight cylinders, share the same bell housing bolt pattern as the Holden straight six engines?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers, Mick.

QLD P Plate restrictedOld Holden

I am trying to find out if an EJ wagon with a red motor is legal to drive on red p plates in Queensland. All the searches I’ve done say “referred” or “not determined”. Does that just mean I it’s up to me to work out if it complies with the 130kw per tonne rule? And if it’s under I’m good to go? Can anyone shed some light?
