179

Why are both my indicators on my Hr Holden either not working or both flash together ??

I've replaced the old flasher unit thinking it was the cause but it's still doing it !!!!

The indicators either both go on or none at all I don't know what's wrong with it I can only imagine it's been wired in wrong ??

Now with extra Zip

So I took the D on it's first decent spin since the addition of the X2 headers & I was pleasantly supprise with the little performance gain from the big block 179! Lol
Despite a little flat spot in the little stromberg I'm very pleased with little extra zip.

Mr Muscle & CLR v's inlet manifold.

How'd all
I've been busy collecting & cleaning parts for a disc brakes conversion & I've score a late HR disc brake manifold with a PCV port as I also plan on setting up a PVC & deleting the walking stick.
Well anyway I cleaned up my manifold with two go's at the oven cleaner & a final scrub with steelo & CLR I'm fairly pleased with the outcome.
Cheers Shane

Rope or Neoprene

What are the pro and cons of fitting a neoprene rear main seal as opposed to the rope seal on red or blue six?
Has anyone used the Neoprene seal and had good results from it?

Cheers, Mick.

Ben Simpson, what do you recommend as the best sealer to use on the head studs that protrude into the water jackets when rebuilding a Holden red/blue six?

How to adjust tension on a front vent window.

Does anyone know how to adjust the tension on a front vent window? It's the only aircon I have in my EH and as it is now quite slack it won't stay open to direct air onto me. Thanks in advance.

Blue motor crank weight

Ben Simpson,
can you tell me if the blue motor 2850 has a heavier crankshaft than it's stepbrother the red 173, similar to the blue 3300 does compared to the red 202?
Thank you.

Cheers, Mick.

Cam Alignment

Seeking thoughts and opportunities to sound out with all, what the issue could be. Putting together another 179, does have new cam, timing gear, powerbond balancer.

Coming to adjust the rockers, at TDC cylinder 1, expect to see valves 7&9 fully open. They are not, and do not open until the timing mark has rotated 180 degrees.

At TDC Valves 1&2 are both closed as they should be

I could understand if the timing gear marks were not aligned correctly, but I am 100% certain that they are.

Welcome thoughts and experience, comments

Thanks
Tom

EH Ute on Ebay, Buyer Beware

There is a EH ute on Ebay for 10k in QLD.
......BUYER BEWARE......

This ute is BENT!, I know I bent it!
I built it, I bent it, and I fixed it. 15 years ago.

The ute left the road at 120, and took the main impact on the top door hinge on the LH A pillar. This impact pushed the pillar IN, BACK and DOWN.
We attempted to rectify this with a sledge hammer and a Porta-Power. First we cut the door out of the opening and attempted to offer up another, no chance!
We beat the car and stretched it 3 ways until a door fit the opening.
The kinks in the LH B pillar at the base of the turret have been wiped over.
The kinks in the glove box opening are still there.
