HOW TO: Diagnose and fix that rough idle

Ok, some thoughts and tips on the painful and elusive yet generally simple to fix problem of a rough as guts idle which makes your baby seem like the rusted out old crapbox that we all know it is not. I am attempting to explain the circumstances at engine idle, the systems used to make it work and some simple yet effective methods of getting yourself out of trouble. Please anyone feel free to correct me on any misinformation I may accidentally put down here.

Engines as many of us will know can be set up (mostly through valve timing) to be more efficient at different ranges of RPM's, the most ideal situation would be a motor moving at extremely low RPM with none of the adverse effects of high speed operation (but none of the benefits either) in which case the valve timing can be set to optimize low speed operation. This is however not the case for domestic vehicles and in order to get any power with some degree of economy we need to optimize a certain higher RPM range, this is generally NOT the idle speeds. To counter the problems of idle, being that low air velocity makes the fuel and air not mix properly, engine manufacturers generally (and still to this day) make the idle mixture rich. The other problem needed to counter is that the spark is generally weaker at idle RPM and the fuel more difficult to ignite due to its poor mixing. There are many systems on both new and old cars used to counter these effects, vacuum and centrifugal advance in the distributer and idle circuits in the carbie.

Help! No start.

HELP!
My gas fueled 308 wouldnt start the other day. All day I tried it with no luck.
Tried new battery, new starter motor and all it does is crank.
Slowly mind you.
Dont know why but the battery is fuuly charged and once the car starts it runs fine.
But with no luck all day I did nothing except turn it over once more and it started, and was fine for 4 days.
Unfortunately I got to work this morning and now my car wont start, wouldnt be such a big deal if I didnt live 1 1/2 hours from work.
It cranks over slowly, but when it decides to crank fast it fires. Its just getting ir cranking fast before the battery dies thats the problem.

V8 3SPD V'S V8 AUSSIE 4 SPD

has anyone got an idea if the V8 3 spd boxes are any stronger than the aussie 4spd bozes? is it true that you can just put the 4spd extention housing on the 3 spd and run the same shifter? is the clutch assy the same and the cross member? i seem to be able to find 3spd v8 boxes for free every where but the aussie 4spd is starting to bring some big dollars and at 7 4spds this year and $150- $400 a pop then the dollars add up. unless someone has a saginaw and or munchie they will sell me with bell housing etc, in Perth the other option i was considering was (prefer not) a top loader. any help wi

scratchin' my head at this one!

hi everyone its chris here, hope you are all fine, as i am. alright here is my problem, for the last day or two my car stereo has been acting bizarre, on the odd occasion when i indicate or beep the horn, hit a pot hole, the whole stereo will shut down for two or three seconds then come back to life as if nothing happened at all! though it is only doing on the odd occasion. i got under the dash and checked all the wiring for loosness, earth, crosses etc, etc. could not find a thing wrong, any suggestion would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance, chris.

Salisbury diff on 253

G'day crew, just wondered if anyone could tell me if I get a 308 to put in my 253 HZ Prem, do I need a different diff or will the standard Salisbury (apparently LSD) work fine with the 308? I'm gunna put in an M21 box at the same time, I just don't wanna annihilate the Salisbury by giving it a bit and finding out then that it won't cater for the 308! Good on ya's, fordie.
