2850:

Description:

Very similar to the 173 engine. One change is that the head uses 3/4" thread spark plugs with tapered a seat rather than the 1/2" tapered seat plug of a 173. The 2850 Engine has Main Bearings which are the same diameter as 202 or 3.3 Engines.

Holden 173 Engine disembled, typical of all Red 6 Engines. Note the Rockers are Adjustable because it is a 149 Head. Standard 173 Heads use Non-Adjustable Rockers. Image by Bubsy. Click to Enlargen.
