SU's running rich

Hey Everyone,

I have 202 with triple SU's running rich.

I spoke to a guy from a SU part dealer and he seemed to think that it could be the mech fuel pump pumping to much pressure. Even tho I am running a fuel reg with gauge.. My float levels are as good as they can be.

What do you guys think?

I am considering trying some leaner needles, as the reg seems to be working just fine...?

any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Bosch U-TFU8 Distributor

Bosch U-TFU8 Distributor

Hi All

In the box of goodies(?) I got with the old 253 I bought were two distributors. One is a standard U-TFU8 points distributor and the other is also a U-TFU8 but has a few extra wires coming out of it with some kind of inductance setup. Which would be the better one to install and why? (And is the inductance type I have an "MEI" unit?)


Clutch pedal

Hi all
Just wanting to know the difference between 6 cyl and v8 pull clutch pedals, I have been told there should be 2 different mounting holes under the dash but mine only has one.
Is it possible to use either pedal or will the pull length of the cable be incorrect
I am putting 308 and 4 speed in car which was originally auto
Any and as much info would be great


Article in today's Daily Telegraph "the future of Holden in Australia"……in a nut shell, NO UTES OR V8's! Cars will be built in Germany, as China would not be able to keep up with local demand.
GM is definitely being run by idiots.

naive old fool am i?

gday all,
