breaking down?

Hey guys,
i have a 253 that has just been serviced and tuned. It was running fine, but today when i opened up the throttle in 1st at about 5000 rpm, the motor suddenly stopped pulling and made sum really viscious loud noises that i can't really describe.
Now what i was thinking is that it was breaking down, not enough petrol being forced in, what do u guys rekon?
However on my dyno printout it says my engine is still pulling at 5500 rpm.

Help would be appreciated, ta.
Matt

Interesting links

Gday All,

No doubt we all have some interesting links in our favourites list, I was curious to find out what other people had in their lists, who knows, one of the links in your list might help someone else who's got a curly prob.

Heres a couple of my favourites that have helped me out in the past, I know it will clarify a few of the common debates I see in and around the posts in here as well.

Theres a bit of chev stuff, but a few of us have got them in our beasties and some general motor stuff also.

Cheers
Shane

Carbie - What should I use?

I have recently installed a 202 it has a 32/78 cam (2800-6800rpm) with a Stage 3 head. I have a WW Stromberg installed on it and i have got a feeling that it is not getting enough air. Does anyone have any suggestions? Should I get a larger carbie e.g Holley 450?

Lead Wiping/Body Fillers

Hi all,
Getting ready to do some panel work on the project and i'm interested in having a go at lead wiping some of the repaired areas. When i was at the panel beaters supply shop i asked about getting lead for this and the guy pointed me to substitute based on aluminium oxide or something. Works the same as lead he said, you heat up the panel load in up and shape it but don't have to worry about the fumes and it felt heaps lighter. Sounds the trick but wondering if anyone out there has tried it and can give it the thumbs up? I was most worried about how well it sticks i guess.

Incidentally got a copy of the book 'donald wait's panel beating in australia and new zealand' from the library and its bloody brilliant.

SUPRA 5 SPEED MODIFICATIONS?

I posted a different heading this time, to get more interest. I am keen on some info on beefing up a Supra 5 speed. I have heard of some engineering companies that can do this work. I have a W55 (couldnt find a W58 for less than $1200). These boxes seem to want to fail on a downshift into second... That seems strange as this is not under engine torque, just compression. I wonder if the helical cut creates thrust in the opposite direction than when it would under accel, and it fails due to not being held in place correctly? Apparently, M20/21 boxes can be beefed y remachining the lay shaft with a larger circlip in order to combat a problem that is very similar.
