V6 into HK fuel system

Hey guys, struck something strange tonight whilst sorting out the fuel system for my HK VN V6 project.

I have 3 hktg filler neck pipes from 3 seperate hktg vans.
The 1st pipe is just a filler pipe with no other outlets welded onto it. The fuel tank has an overflow tube in the top which runs to outside under the car.
The 2nd filler pipe has the filler plus an outlet which comes out of the side of the filler near the cap which then runs to the tank. This tank does not have an overflow to outside.
The 3rd filler pipe has 2 outlets, the same as above, plus another "upper vent pipe" outlet which goes to outside under the car.

coil volts

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what voltage I should have at the pos side of the coil on my hq 253. I think its supposed to be 10.8 is this correct?

By the way, congrats on the new sight Rusty.

My wife likes it too, as it keeps me away from the porn sights and stops me from talking to her about the HQ all the time.

Carby Question

Just a quick question.
Can you put a pre-pollution carby on an engine (253) that
has Pollution heads and manifold.
Would this be the same as blocking off pollution hoses on
the standard one.
