Cmpression pressure for a Blue 308?

What sort of pressures should I be getting from a compression test of my blue 308? What is normal, and what is the minumum acceptable reading? She has just started puffing smoke from the lights after 374000km.

HR Wipers

Does anyone know what causes a HR's left hand wiper to spin around and crash into the bonnet under load when there is marginal water on the screen? I suspect something is worn out and needs replacing as it has worked for years. I

Cheers,

Ricky.

Actions ????

What's with the austion section on the site ??? "The Swap"

PLEASE, no bloody auctions !!! they [Naughty Pottyword]ing suck and soon we'll be over-run with the ebay cast-offs !

A For Sale section would do just fine...if you're unsure of asking price, then ask ! or put "offers"
But for [Naughty Pottyword]s sake, no more BLOODY AUCTIONs, they're a damn blight on society as it is !!!

"Swap" does NOT mean "AUCTION"

Timing

Hi All,
Is it true that over time your timing marks are no longer accurate? (My case a 308).
I have heard that the pulley can slip enough to give you a wrong reading with your timing light.
If so then how can you get a true reading?
Thanks
Dimi

Windscreen leak?

Hey guy's, In this last rain we have had up in queensland, i have discovered a water leak. Now, the water is sitting ON TOP of the dash board right next to the windscreen. I think it might be that the windscreen seals are like 35 years old or something, but is there another way that water can get onto the dash? A leaking windscreen seems the only logical place to look. But a new windscreen seal is like $150, if i can fix it without spending that money, i would love to. But would replacing the front windscreen seal be a good idea anyway?
cheers, Josh
