Anyone got a WW Strommie and a steel rule?

I'm in the process of pulling together a Guide for 350 Holley carbs fitted to red motors (I know, I know it's bordering on off-topic... but I promise to make the document FB/EK-centric :P ). In the guide I'll cover some of the adaptors that are available for running the Holley on different factory m...

Re: jet sizes for double carbs

Browno,

Don't bother making main jets for Stromberg - you can order any size you want from Rocket Industries, who are the Aussie supplier for Stromberg Carburetor Company.

This may be of some use for the right sizings:


Cheers,
Harv.

Re: Does this warmaride work with the dual switches?

The round warmaride is normally better than the "poor mans". It has the demister duct connections - poor mans heaters also can have them (plastic duct ends cable tied on), but they are rarer.

Can you post a picture of the switch (the fan bit gor me curious).

Cheers,
Harv.

Re: Does this warmaride work with the dual switches?

Ali, The heater in the picture is the earlier Warmaride heater. Normally the FB/EK's have the square type, but the round one is a perfectly acceptable period accessory - my bet is that more than a few FB/EK's were fitted with these by dealers. The dual dash switches (generally) require some buggerin...

Re: Borg Warner Diff

Stevo, The pinion angle at the motor end shouldn't change unless the motor/box (or their mounts) were changed. The angle at the diff end will change depending on: a) how thick the new mounting saddles are, b) what angle the diff was rotated when the saddles are welded on, c) how the rear suspension ...

Re: FB/EK Holden Stromberg Carburetion Enthusiasts Guide

Cheers guys. I enjoyed writing this one - helped me better understand a lot of fiddly concepts (like "linkages") that I had a rough idea of, but not properly. I was lucky to get hold of some good Bendix manuals... have since sent the manuals overseas to the Stromberg Carburetor Ltd (Genuin...

Re: Overheating issues.

Similar to Sammy's problem a few months back:
http://www.fbekholden.com/forum/viewtop ... 25&t=13280

Triple check timing, block flush, then shroud (in order of increasing pain-in-the-bum to do) sounds about right.

Re: Borg Warner Diff

Gents, I may have this wrong (correct me if I have), but I think the basic process should be: a) select the diff, and have it narrowed to fit the FB/EK shell and desired wheels. b) make up a set of diff mounting saddles, but don't weld them on just yet. c) mount the diff, engine and gearbox into the...

Re: Gauge Pod

No drama. For the curious (including me :lol: ) I ran a tape over the FB speaker grille this morning: A = 9 1/2"-9 5/8" (the front edges are curved) - about 1/2" - 2 1/2" smaller than the EJ/EH one (and not wedge shaped), B = 6 3/4" to 7" (the side edges are also curved...

Re: Spin on Spin Off oil filter conversion

Paul, Any of the aftermarket remote filter kits (eg Moroso) will do the job. a) tee the inlet into the oil pressure sender, b) plumb the outlet to the bung on the sump near the dipstick,' c) plumb a 1.5-2.5mm restriction orifice into either of the supply or return lines, and d) mount the remote filt...

Re: Gauge Pod

The dimensions look to be pretty similar to FB/EK, a couple of dramas to work through though: a) the FB/EK dash top is flat (for resting brown bottles on whilst working on it.... genuine GMH design feature :P ). The EJ/EH is slanted up. If you put he EJ/EH gauge pod onto the FB/EK, the gauges will a...

Re: trimatic or powerglide

Squirralien, If it was mine, I'd go the trimatic. The traumatic will give you another gear... a little easier on the engine. It appears to be an easier box to get hold of and get bits for from wreckers - was run in Conformadores and You-and-I's long after the 'glide was history. A worked over trauma...

Re: Electric fuel pump question

Steve, It should self-prime with the first full-load of fuel in the tank...may not prime if the first fuel load is less than 2/3. After that, it will syphon happily - vapour lock is very unlikely in the tank (more likely at the hotter carb end of the line). The Holley red in my EK wagon runs out of ...
