Engine

The EH came equipped with an all new inline six cylinder engine based on the Chevy II, but produced in Holden's new £11 million engine plant at Fisherman's Bend. Three engine configurations were available - 149ci, 179ci, and an optional low-compression version of the 149ci to cater for standard-grade fuel. The stroke on all models was 3", which was 1/4" less than the Chevy II's stroke, keeping the smaller-bored 149ci engine in an oversquare configuration and increasing the low & mid range torque in comparison to the American mill.

The other main improvements over the old grey motors were a seven bearing crankshaft to reduce torsional vibration, and hydraulic tappets for quieter running & easier maintenance.
