3.3

202 Trimatic Compatibility

Hey all.

I recently bought a complete VH rolling shell, only thing missing was the motor, trans and tailshaft. All that aside i aquired a blue 3.3 and trans, tailshaft too.

Now, silly my I let my ford crazed cousin fit the trans to the motor as i was unsure. Anyway, he killed it. Now sounds like a bunch of steel marbles being flung around an alloy casing as it idles.

My guess is the Trans is lunch. So would be my torque coverter and flywheel?

To save hassle as I cant be assed rebuilding, I have gone ahead and dragged out my spare VK EFI trimatic.

I would like to know about the wiring of a genuine GMH taco as i am rebuilding a a W B one toner. on the back of the taco it has three polls for wire connections, they are marked as follows, looking at the back from right to left. 1. Brown, where does this go to the negative side of the coil? 2. Black. Is this the earth wire? 3. Pink. Is this to the power source?

Weber 34 on the HQ

Well, I followed through with the step from the Holley 350, and threw a 34ADM into the Q..... so far so good!!!!! Haven't had a test drive yet, as I'm without throttle setup hahaha.

Can anyone post pics of their throttle on the back half of the Weber?

350 holley carby issue, car goes to stall when i screw the idle set screw to idle higher

350 holley carby issue, car goes to stall when i screw the idle set screw to idle higher, which I want to do because the engine is close on dying in gear at idle. any ideas why it would doo that? i backed off the float in case it was flooding, no change, i raised the float a fract in case it was too lean, no change, I used the mixture screws, it ran a bit smoother but as soon as i tried to raise the idle, it almost died.
thanks in advance for any help

oil pressure

the oil pressure in my 202 dropped to near zero for a while then the engine started leaking oil like you would not believe, empty the sump in 200k. left puddles of oil every time I parked.
No unusual noises.
tested compression was ok, but dropped the sump and head any way, new rings new big ends new gasketa and oil seals, got all back together and running but still lousy oil pressure. at least no more leaks.
Possibilities..faulty oil pressure gauge, faulty oil pressure bypass spring in oil pump, leak in oil pickup in sump.
can the oil pressure spring be removed from the pump while in situ or is it easier to just pull the pump?
Didn't prime the pump after reassembly as i never had the pump out.

sludge

I went to the wreckers today after a central locking actuator and lock assembly for my daughters Focus.

I saw an efi VK that had been pretty well picked over. The rocker cover had been unbolted by someone else, but this was what the top of the engine looked like. I wonder why the other bloke walked away.

cheers Jim

Blue 3.3 Engine Block

Blue 3.3 engine block ready has been bored to .060" over and skimmed, now ready for reassembly.
You can see the block is not drilled for a water galley on the front left between cylinders one and two, where as the head does have the required drilling.

Cheers, Mick.

air pump threads

Can someone tell me what the size of the plugs for the air pump threads on the head of the 3.3 is?
Got some new brass ones today they seemed the right size but the threads didn't match up, wouldn't quite screw in.
thanks

Have a great 2016

Revheads rocker covers/restore fully-closed PCV

I was wondering if anyone has experience with the Revheads rocker covers, and whether they'd be suitable for the wee project I'm thinking of, restoring the ventilation system to fully-enclosed.

I bought the car with one of those cheapy alloy rocker covers fitted - it's got surface rust - the head is a standard head for the 3.3 engine, so I don't know why they bothered. The oil cap is the breather kind, and there's just the one vacuum pipe, going to the inlet manifold.
