    Thats cool, thanks mate. Yea I'm like you - its just something different & it looks cool compared to the single carb setup. Not really interested in massive performance, just reliablilty so can't imagine going over 6 grand (not that I know yet though!). The one's I am looking at are attached to a 173 high comp head & still has the headers attached too that are connected to the bottom of the manifold as well - would I use this head on my 202? I've been told my head is a Yella Terra but haven't been able to check it confirm so which would be the best?
    Cheers for your time mate

    Myles, check ebay. Couple of hundred i imagine! There are plenty of aftermarket ones. If it's genuine it may fetch a touch more. Didn't have to do too much as the car was in great condition. I just linished out the big grazes. It's far from perfect but for a streeter more than fine.

    j.e.d; to get a 202 past 6 grand consistently is a fairly full on build. Seems to me you just want a nice streeter. If it's a high-comp head it'll go with your 202 but could do with bigger valves and a little work to unshroud them. To see if it's a YT ideally you have to view the ports to see the work done and if original the valves will have YT stamped on the faces. But often they've been renewed.

    I think the YT's used certain casting numbers.

    Basically any old Red head with port work was done in the YT style; casting around head bolt bosses removed, think steel tubes in place, little porting work and a plunge-cut around the back of the throat/valve stem. Google some images, you'll see.

    Link me to them?

    Hey mate, cheers for all your advise so far. Yea you've got it bang on, just a nice streeter is all I'm after - the 202 I'm looking at putting in the one tonner, and I've got an injected 304 to go in the Torana so that'll be my fun car.
    Here's a link to an ad I've put on trademe showing my engine, but unfortunately it doesn't show a good side on shot.
    Torana Hatchback 202 Inlet Manifold & Carb | Trade Me
    And here is the link to the carb & manifold setup I would like to get:
    Holden 186 Twin Carbs and manifolds | Trade Me
    I'll take any recommendations you have on this mate & appreciate you letting me post this on your build (I can start a thread if that makes it easier?)
    Cheers, Jase

    No problems!

    Looks like a genuine manifold/stock setup. Nice. As for the head though YT's used the pedestal rockers which are adjustable. That head has bridged pairs which are non adjustable. Looks like it's all a stock deal but at that current price it's a good deal!

    As mine was originally a column manual it still had the ugly shift rods on the end of the column as well as the redundant shift tube.

    Pulled that all out which involved a bit of careful grinding as i did it all with the column still in. Originally i was just going to make a spacer to fill the void but as the bottom bearing was totally flogged i did this instead. Nylon with a bronze insert which locates using the original retainers.

    Plugging awaaaaaaaaaaaay. Everyone's progressing in leaps and bounds with their projects and i'm stuck doing millions of little bits at a time.

    Stripped/cleaned and re-assembled one of the HZ calipers. Excellent condition inside. Pistons/seals are mint. Someone's played with these before. Also spent time on my back under the car getting the hard to reach areas of the chassis but now i think i'll just drop the chassis. Like i always should have.
