Thermastatic valve

Can someone enlighten me about what the purpose of the thermostatic valve on the base of the air filter and what it does on a blue motor?

Thanks in advance.
Cheers, Mick.

VK 3.3 Recon'd Long motor for sale, Perth (VK Sump)

Hey guys, I have for sale a new Recon 3.3 Black motor, heads set up for gas. Located in Perth
I needed a new donk for the pig, which I purchased from an engine builders in Warrnambool, VIC. Lo and Behold, I bought both off the fella, as freight was an easy setup.

I've set mine up for the HQ, and have the other sitting here, hoping for a good home (Otherwise I'll move it to Sydney with me in December).

If you're genuinely interested, you can email me at nstyhj@gmail.com

Rebuilt blue or black 202

Hey guys, I'm chasing a blue or black recon 3.3 for the kingswood daily driver, in the Perth region. I need to do the rings on my current engine, and I simply don't have the time.
Can anybody recommend a mob that might have an exchange on the shelf?? Otherwise I'm up for freighting one I saw in Melbourne.

Thanks for any and all help
Rhys

Automatic choke WB 202

G'day one and all

The automatic choke on my 202 (WB Tunna) stopped working all of a sudden and now the car won't idle at all, just conks out.
Worked before I changed the plugs (1.5mm gap), air filter, oil and oil filter.
Any ideas from the Brains trust?
Cheers All

Tub to tray

Hi all. I've got an old WB ute which I'm seriously considering cutting the tub off of and whacking a tray on the back. This is mainly due to all the rust being in the tub. It's been hit in the back corner too and had a bodge repair job. I'm not interested in turning it into a tonner as such. Just want to put the tray on the back. I know some guys on here would have done something similar, so I'm after some pointers. Thanks in advance. Tonners aren't cheap here in tassie so selling the ute and buying a tonner isn't really an option for me

Flat spots and stalling around corners. New weber 38 DGMS

Hi all

Have just installed a new weber 38 DGMS in the premmie. Goes a lot better than the tired old Rochester that was in there previously. Except around corners where it seems to be starved of fuel and occasionally cuts out. Problem partially relieved by closing the choke. Is it the idle mixture? Idle speed sounds about right. Thanks in advance!

good running engine and box for sale shortly

next week im removing a 202 (3.3) from a vk commodore for a bloke, complete with trimatic, its also on lpg.
it is supposedly a very good runner. currently a driving car, its about to be turned into a brock replica.

anyone interested please let me know here, email me or call me. i'd much rather a good engine be used by someone in need, however if there is no interest i strip the thing and it will become a hq race donor block.

i will personally road test, compression test and report on things when i see the car.

Sad sale - UC Torana - as is (insurance write-off)

Feel free to check out my ad on Gumtree. Very sad sale, and in fact the damage is pretty much confined to the right front quarter (not taking into account the general condition of the vehicle), but I don't have the money or energy to tackle any repairs.

I've spent a fair amount on her already, but thankfully hadn't on the bodywork. Happy to answer any questions not answered in the ad.

Vehicle currently in Goulburn, NSW (at least for a couple of weeks).
