Blue dizzy vs red dizzy advance

Do the advance weights and springs (or even the vac advance) from the Lucas and/or Bosch red 6 dizzy fit and work in a blue 6 electronic dizzy?

Speedo drive

I have a HQ with a 4 speed Saginaw fitted but I have no speedo drive for the box. I am running a 3:08 diff ratio. Any ideas where to source a speedo drive from & what teeth I need. Rare spares told me it is a 20tooth?

Sydney Cruise

Well, I think I've found a good spot to start our cruise. :shindig:
It's in Thornleigh, which is just before Hornsby, and it's on Pennant Hills Road. It's called Kenley Park, and is on the corner of Kenley Road & Pennant Hills Road.

There's a Map, and a picture of the parking area in my shed. I'm on page 1. There's enough room for about 20 cars, which should be plenty for us. :b1:
Let me know what everyone thinks. I couldn't find anything else that was suitable, other than Bobbin Head, which is a bit further away, but it is a nice drive, and it'll cost $11 to get into the park.

Cheers, Steve.

Unleaded head question

Hey guys
I know this is a pretty spam question comes up regularly on the site but my case is a little different. I am rebuilding a 202 to go into the EH is going to be a pretty hot engine. It has a yella terra head on it that has been reground, all springs are in good condition.

I would like the 202 to run unleaded and was wondering is there anyway to check if it has been done before? And the compression problems are fixed fixed by just using high octane fuel if i have researched right.

P.S. Does anyone have a carburretta float to suit WW stromberg that they are willing to sell to me?

HZ Parts For Sale

Hey Guys!

I am wrecking a HZ Panel Van, got a few bits to get rid of:

202 Red Motor, runs well, still in car, hear running, not being sold with starter motor or exhaust....$150
Bench Seat, retrimmed in black vinyl with grey cloth, very good condition.....$50
Door trims (front) to match bench seat (same cloth), good condition $30

If you want the bench seat and the matching door trims, you can have them both for $65.

The van itself will eventually be available, after I get off what I need for my HJ's. The van's body is not great, but the chassis may be (I haven't got under to check).

Indicator Lense

Image: 

Heres a quirky question if there is anyone out there that can answer it. Has anyone ever painted the housing behind the indicators on a WB. I recently replaced both lenses and I really think the white looks [Naughty Pottyword]house, because its more visible with the clearer lenses on, i was thinking of painting it black or silver or maybe some of that fake chrome [Naughty Pottyword]. Anyone done it or seen it, i think there was a Tonner on the front of street machine a while back that looked like it was different than white.

308 Compression Test Results...

Yesterday I did a compression test on my 308, she's been rebuilt in recent years and has done a few K's since so I thought I'd check it out. Things appear to be pretty good but there were a few anomalies and I thought I'd post the results up here for some guru's to give me a run-down on what might be going on.
Anyway, results are as follows: (all results in PSI)

First round (no oil), Second Round (5ml of oil squirted into plug hole)
1. 170(1st), 180(2nd)
2. 160, 180
3. 170, 170
4. 125, 130
5. 170, 180
6. 170, 190
7. 170, 180
8. 140, 150

So things seem pretty good - my assumption was that cyl 4 and 8 have some possible valve seating issues and the rings are generally all in pretty good nick. But I'm not a guru, I want to hear from the guru's out there!
