looking for a pic of X2 twin carbie setup....

Hi guys, is there anyone out there that can post a pic of an x2 twin carb setup? I have a set here but no linkages or aircleaners so I want to get an idea of how they are set up. I am toying with the idea of getting a old ute to play with and am wondering if it is worth setting up the carbs in the future or just selling them to someone who will love them :-)

many a question....

Hey guys, Thought I would kill a few birds with one stone....

1. I have a HEI Zenith dizzy in my HZ 253, its currently only getting 8v to the dizzy. I need a full 12v there so my tacho works, (GTS dash). What do I have to do to get it there, ie; relay, type/size etc and a wiring schematic. The car is currently running with no dramas.

2. What is the difference between HK HT HG front ends and difference between 6cyl and V8, is it only the springs or are the control arms different ? I have a v8 unit and it has 2 braces from the crossmember to the centre radiator support do they all have these ?

253 horsepower?

Hey all new to this forum,
I have got a 253 wid the following specs:
-465 holley
-edelbrock inlet manifold
-electronic ignition
-ported heads, oversize valves, stainless steel valve seats
-stage 2 crane cam
-ACL flattops
-Genie extractors
It has been rebuilt recently so it is definately not a tired engine, but i had it dynoed and got a lame 93 rear wheel kilowatts at 4000 rpm. This figure sounds like a stock 253 power figure.

What do u guys think it would be good for if it was tuned properly? I know there are sum major problems with the fuel mixtures, and possibly my carb is too small for oversize valves, what do u think?....... I always thought my engine should be good for about 115 rear wheel KW, what do ya rekon?

Still having trouble with the ol' 253.

I posted here a week or so ago about my 253 chirping/whistling
which ended up a really loud puffing or sucking sound.
I checked all the things you people said to check and I found everything in order.
I decided to take the intake manifold off and replace the gaskets, in case this might have been the problem.
Now that it is off, if you turn the engine over, I can still
hear the same noise, and I can't for the life of me figure
it out. Is it because the manifold is off, and that the gaskets
might have been blown, therfore it's the same sound.
It's sounds a bit like compressed air being released in a real

Rear Axle Bearing

Bloody Hell! HT Monaro. I pulled the rear axle out of the housing and I can't get the bearing retainer and bearing off the axle. Grinder? Drill? Cold chisel? Special tool? They're stuck fast and I'm worried I might damage the axle. How do you guys get 'em off?

Registering / selling a car

I haven't done this in a couple of years and its now changed quite a bit. In the old days you would get your roadworthy and ctp, take your car to the transport dept (or cop shop) to verify the body numbers then go an get your rego. No I hear that you can drive your car to get the roadworthy without a permit, get your safety cert and get your rego. And I hear that you're not even allowed to advertise your car until its got a blue slip which then expires after 3 months. Can anyone give me a rundown on how it works these days ?
Thanks
